“ Brand: Morrisons / Type: Baby Wash „
I live on a tight budget and have for some time bought a lot of shop's own make basic soaps. However these seem to have gradually reduced in quality and increased in price over time. Since I was not happy with the cheap soaps I was using I went to find an alternative that would still keep my purse happy. I found this Morrison's Baby Soap in my local store and was amazed to see that it was only 20p. It was on offer but it's original price was still only 29p. I buy and use quite a lot of baby products (such as baby wipes, baby bath and baby shampoo) since they are often very gentle and kind on the skin. However I'd never tried baby soap before.
This comes as an individual bar rather than in a multi pack. It is wrapped in a basic white wrapper with a cute 'Baby' and heart logo. There is not much information printed on the front of the wrapper except the weight of the product (100g) and the detail that this is a "mild and gentle formulation". Full ingredients are printed on the bottom of the wrapper along with some standard warnings about avoiding getting the soap into the eyes. Contact information for the brand is also printed.
The soap is white and shaped in a slight arc. This is helpful for gripping and also useful when you need to lift it off a flat surface. When you put the soap into water it softens quickly but does not melt too much. It gradually softens so you can rub the outer layer of the soap either onto your skin or a sponge. You can leave it lolling around in your bathwater for a few minutes without it turning into a soggy mess.
The soap has a creamy consistency which I associate with much more expensive soaps. It lathers well but feels soft like a moisturiser. It feels really great to smooth the soapy foam over your skin. When I apply to my skin I feel like I'm giving my skin a real treat. It makes my skin feel soft and nourished.
The soap has a very mild talcum powder, cotton towel, fresh fragrance which is gender neutral and which makes me feel very clean and renewed. Many cheaper soaps have that 'fatty' scent which is not very nice but this soap smells lovely.
The soap cleans very well. It is great for hand washing as well as using in the bath. Although it's made for babies it can tackle adult dirt and grime all too well. It's the perfect soap for places like underarms and private areas as it causes no sensitivity and leaves skin feeling fresh and soft.
I'm so impressed with this soap that I've stocked up on a few bars to last me. I would recommend this to anyone who thinks this is only suitable for babies or to people who might shun the soap because it's own brand and cheaper than other brands. It's an ideal soap that I will continue to use as long as the brand produce it!
One day I was looking around Morrioson and I noticed my favourite Pears soap was out of stock. I was out of hand soap and I had to buy something until my favourite soap was back in stock.
I am really pretension buyer when it comes to soap and most of the soaps dry my hands out. I find that handmade organic and natural soaps are far superiors but also very pricey to use on the long run, they are more of an occasionally treat fro me. The only one that is of satisfying quality is Pears.
While I was browsing trough Morriosons shelves thinking what to buy this baby soap caught my eyes. I though it will be milder and creamier being a baby soap. It only was around 30p so I though it worth's a try.
Sadly this does not come with recycling packaging. It comes in a thin sealed white plastic film. You can not see the colour of the products and it has no list of ingredients on it. I do hate not seeing the list of ingredients also being a baby soap I think is important to know what goes in it. But being in a hurry I picked it up and put in in my basked.
When it comes to washing your hands with it I got to say is really mild and leathers up constantly well. I have washed my hands with it until it finished and my hands never got dry. Hands also feel extremelyclean and it does remove dirt with ease. Is not scented badly either, is smells creamy./Also it seems to be rather long lasting even though is not a big bar of soap.
I was pleasantly surprised by this cheap soap and the fact that it worked. I will repurchase if my favourite soap is out of stock again but I still won't be using it daily as I dread to think what goes in it.
When it comes to buying soaps I'm a wee bit addicted. The reason for this is in a week I get through an awful lot of bath and shower products and suddenly my skin feels a bit congested and lifeless suddenly. Well it's bound to the amount of products I use on it and so occasionally I go back to basics for a while and try to get my skin back into tip top condition.
Having rather combination skin my shins and back went really greasy screaming 'no more over fragranced products on me please!' and my shoulders and tummy skin felt dry although not flaky or anything. It's then I shove all my usual stuff in a drawer somewhere and purchase myself either some really mild baby products or stuff that is unscented and I saw this in Morrisons priced at 27p a bar and thought it had to be worth a go! I also know my friend uses this on her little boy which stuck in my mind as I bought it and if it's good enough for him...it's good enough for me says I!
Oblong, white plastic bag that is sealed. On the front in light pink and blue writing I'm told it is Morrisons 'Baby', Baby Soap which is a 'mild and gentle formulation' and is 100g is weight (a standard size). On the back of the packet I'm given a list of ingredients, warnings are given, size is stated, contact details for Morrisons are there and finally there is a bar-code on there. Nice enough, simple packaging that doesn't yell cheap or anything at you on the shelf. When you get the soap out it is plain as well so there's no saying what it is anyway so if it's good no one knows you've bought a 'cheap' product! Good start in my view! lol.
Well it is a bar of white soap. Hefty? Yes and quite thick. No markings on it, it isn't all that glossy to look at and aroma wise there's very little smell really when you first sniff it. What you can smell is a fairly sweet 'baby' smell that is rather creamy and pleasant but not as fragranced as I expected to be.
Using it is easy of course. Wipe it over a baby/child's or your own damp body or use a sponge or whatever you want to. As a soap goes it's really easy to use. It releases a gentle aroma, smears lightly on the body leaving you with a slightly soapy feeling on the skin and a little white lather. Not loads but enough. It feels moisturising as is easy to use to clean yourself with and not too greasy.
Afterwards I rinse it off (which is really easy to do) and when using it, it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin afterwards, I'm left feeling clean and fresh and very delicately smelling of the soap of which the smell vanishes completely off the body within half an hour anyway. Skin is left 'normal' really. Not softer, no drier nothing at all. I simply feel clean and none greasy and none dried out but I don't feel moisturised or anything. It's simply a soap to clean with.
As I said my friend uses this on her little lad and when I look after him this is what I am currently using to wash his sticky mitts. Again it works well and if he splashes his face, again no irritation so I do believe this is mild and gentle soap and he does have soft skin and appears to enjoy using it!
If I had a child I want them to smell more like a 'baby' than this. It really isn't all that fragranced and what does fragrance doesn't have the staying power anyway. It's a cheap option, lasts very well and doesn't melt everywhere and is of course a great buy financially and does a very acceptable job to be fair to it! For the price it always is, if interested give it a go! Make your own mind up! lol
