“ Brand: Morrisons / Type: Bath Product „
Whilst shopping recently I saw this Morrisons Savers Baby Bath on offer for only 20p. I thought that it might be suitable as a cheap shower gel substitute for myself. Therefore I am reviewing this as an adult who uses this personally rather than uses it for a baby. Some people think it's silly but I have used quite a few baby products for myself in the past. The products often have a mild formula which means they are really gentle on the skin and the basic range of baby products in supermarkets is often far cheaper than other products for adults.
This product comes in a 500ml sized white plastic bottle. The bottle is fully recyclable after you remove the hard plastic cap which can be screwed off. I think the larger size is fantastic as it means it lasts longer and you get a lot for your money. If you are comparing this to shower gels then it's rare that you get a 500ml sized shower gel elsewhere. The plastic of the bottle is fairly soft and can be squeezed easily to eject the liquid. A dispensing hole in the lid is of an adequate size. When dispensing, however, the liquid is so runny and the bottle so sensitive to being held that as soon as you turn the bottle upside down it ejects the liquid quite forcefully and quickly, so best hold the bottle at a slight angle. The flip style cap is secure when pressed back into place and is also easy to re-open.
The label design for this product is similar to other products in the M Savers baby range. The label on the front of the bottle features a silhouette of a yellow rubber duck alongside some font that looks like it has been written by a child. It's a cute design but is obviously stripped back and made for the basic range. The label on the back has lots of information to access. Full ingredients are given as are directions for use, some standard warnings, information on how to recycle the packaging and contact information for the Morrisons group.
The baby bath liquid is a surprising colour. It's a garish sky blue shade that looks like it could be a horrible chemical soup. It is extremely runny and it has a gloopy consistency which means it does not flow smoothly but seems to drop in great gummy globules.
When I added a reasonable amount to my bathwater it had absolutely no effect. Even adding more doesn't seem to create any foam in the bathwater unfortunately - so this is no good as a substitute bubble bath or even for creating bubbles on a small scale in the bathtub water. You really have to apply this to a sponge. It's too gooey to be able to put straight onto skin and simply slides off if you try. Applied to a sponge you then have to fluff it up on the applicator to create a lather. When it lathers it creates a rather fine and watery foam. When applied this way it actually works well as a body cleanser. The bubbles feel soft as I smooth them over my skin and because the foam is quite thin it feels much milder and kinder to my skin. The baby bath cleanses and softens my skin. I feel clean in every part of my body when I use this baby bath. I also like how my skin feels as I'm using it.
The baby bath liquid has a slight fragrance. It is similar to the scent of the other baby products in the M Savers range although somewhat weaker. I would describe the fragrance as being like a mild sweet alcohol. This may sound odd but it's a sharp, clean fragrance that suitable for the baby range. The fragrance is not noticeable on my skin once I've dried my body though.
I think you basically get what you pay for with this product - whether you are using it for baby or for yourself. It's a basic product with no frills. It doesn't create any kind of luxurious foam unless you work at it and then it cleans well and softens skin to a mild degree. I'm happy to use it at the price I bought it at but it's nothing special and it doesn't provide you with a marvellous, pampering bath time experience. I actually would recommend Tesco's basic range shower gel rather than this although you get less product it's only marginally more money and it has a beautiful smell and effect. I think I would buy this Morrisons Baby Bath again though to save a few pennies here and there!
This is a review of Morrisons Value Baby Bath which I bought to try in our older daughter's bath. We're not using any products on the new baby yet to let her skin form its own defences.
The baby bath is packaged in a white plastic bottle which is recyclable and has a flip top lid. The bottle has a label on it with a yellow duck which is really cute and the label shows it is from the Morrison's Savers range.
Inside, the liquid is bright blue and you do need to squirt quite a lot in to the bath to get lots of bubbles in the water. As it is so cheap I don't mind using a bit more in the bath. The bubbles are long lasting and there is not much fragrance to the product so I feel it is quite kind on young skin.
I paid around 50p for a 500ml bottle of this baby bath but it is not listed online for a current price check.
I felt this compared on an even footing with the Tesco baby bath we have also tried. For the price it is excellent value for money and the bottle looks quite nice on the shelf in the bathroom with its yellow duck label, it doesn't look cheap at all.
I will definitely buy this baby bath again in the future. We don't shop often at Morrison's but have a new big branch being built nearby so will probably get the chance to shop there more in the future. This is a recommended product if you want lots of bubbles and laughs at bath time.
I can confirm that adults can use it too!
I get through alot of shower and bath products on a weekly basis cos I'm a total clean freak! I do love a nice bath though and what evokes more luxury and kindness than a baby bath product eh? Feeling run down and rather unwell of late I felt like using something that would look after me so when I saw this priced at 33p a bottle in my local Morrisons store I decided to get it as it really was a bargain as well as getting a couple of bottles of my usual stuff at the same incase this was totally awful lol!
500ml white plastic bottle with a flip top lid to the top of it and it has a bright yellow label around it's middle. On the front in dark green writing Im told it is Morrisons 'Value' Baby Bath and the size is stated. On the back of the label other information includes ingredients and warnings being given, directions for use are listed, I'm told from once opened to use it within 12 months and contact details for Morrisons are given. It does look cheap and a bit of a nasty product to be honest as it screams it's economy however I like the flip top action to the top of it and feel it's informative enough and easy to use!
All you do to use this is squeeze a little of the light blue transparent liquid under running taps.
Now this is a rather runny liquid and personally I find to get any foam from this at all I need to use rather a generous amount of it. It doesn't colour my water or particulary fragrance it either as it only has a very light gentle sort of baby smell to it if you sniff it straight from the bottle and somehow that smell manages to get lost with so much water even though I use a lot of product.
The water isn't softened by much at all as well as not particulary fragranced and any white foam that is achieved does vanish rather quickly too.
Well it didn't do a lot for me at all so I can't over enhuse about it. I wasn't left feeling like I'd used anything in my water really. It certainly isn't luxurious or anything like that! I wasn't left fragranced up with a baby smell though it didn't hurt or benefit my skin at all!
It's ok for me I wouldn't want to put a baby in it though really!
Only available in Morrisons stores.
