Although I don't have a child I always have a packet of baby wipes in the house as I use them for many different purposes. I most often use them to wipe clean the ears, eyes and orifices of my pets. I also use them myself to freshen up my hands or face or to clean up minor spills if I'm on the go or stuck in a car, train or bus. Since I use baby wipes for these purposes I have never really thought about the qualities of the product and have usually opted for shop's own brand products. However, I recently had the chance to try these Pampers Sensitive Wipes for free and getting a pack of these made me aware that the quality and benefits of baby wipes can vary a lot from brand to brand.
I got a pack of 56 baby wipes and they were priced at £1. I thought the packet was quite large compared to the ones I usually buy which are about the same sized pack but with more wipes. This is due to the thickness of the Pampers wipes. The pack is white coloured and has the term 'sensitive' underneath the brand logo to distinguish it from the regular Pampers packs. The pack is printed with information about the product on the front, sides and back of the wrapper. This includes a list of full ingredients.
Pampers state these wipes are alcohol free and that instead they contain something they call "pure care lotion". They say the wipes "gently clean" and are perfect for sensitive skins. Looking at the ingredients informs me that they contain aloe leaf juice and chamomile flower extract.
The packet is fitted with a transparent seal on the top. You can peel this back to access the top of the pile of wipes, pull one out and then you can re-seal this sticky label. I've found that the label loses it's stickiness after a while although it's more effective than the smaller seals on other brand baby wipes I have used. Plucking just one wipe out of the pack is a bit difficult too and I usually end up taking two out and having to shove one back inside! Despite this I do think the packet is a lot better than the shop's own brand packets. The outer wrap is stronger and the seal is larger and more sticky which makes it more effective for longer.
One wipe is square in shape and measures 17 square centimetres. The material feels thick and soft, more like a clothing style material than throwaway cloth or paper. The softness and strength of the wipe is impressive. They are so superior to the cheap wipes I've been using. The paper is marked with a pattern of wavy lines and butterflies which is a nice touch and which is possibly a practical measure to ensure that the wipe holds more liquid. The wetness of each wipe makes each wipe feel like a facecloth that has been doused in water and then wrung out. A wipe holds a lot of liquid and after using you do feel rather wet. The wipes feel very damp but they do not drip unless you actually wring them out in which case a few drops squeeze out!
The wipes have virtually no fragrance to them at all. If anything there is a slight smell of talcum powder and cleanness. The liquid they hold feels just like water although you realise after you dry your skin that the liquid in the wipe makes your skin feel softer and moisturised.
They feel cool and refreshing on the skin and are a pleasure to use especially in hot weather. They are also effective at cleaning the skin. Make-up, for instance, comes off easily with a wipe. My dogs are also not irritated by any perfume smells as I'm using this on them! After using a wipe on yourself they can double up as a work desk cleaning cloth and they pick up dust, spills and crumbs very nicely!
The wipes cannot be flushed down a toilet and must be deposited in a waste paper bin instead. They have a shelf life of 3 months. Like most wipes I imagine they will dry out gradually from the moment you open the pack. I've had mine for a few weeks and they are still very wet and fresh.
I am very pleased with these Pampers Sensitive Wipes and will definitely buy them in the future even if they cost a bit more than my regular brand. I would certainly recommend these. I really like that they are so thick and strong and that they have a cooling, moisturising effect without containing any ingredients likely to irritate me.
You can buy these in supermarkets and chemists.
I have found these wipes to be of good quality, which is what I expect from a brand which is as well established as Pampers is. The wipes themselves are not too wet where you feel like you are soaking your baby wet, just damp enough to clean your baby's bottom. I find that the wipes are thick enough for the job. They are not too flimsy that they tear while you are try to clean your baby.
It will cost you around £1 from most of the major supermarkets for a pack of 56 wipes. This compares to say Asda's own brand where you get 72 wipes for £1. As you would expect the supermarket brand is a little less expensive, but I have found the quality not to be as good as the Pampers brand.
We felt for the first few months when our baby's skin was at it's most delicate we should use the sensitive brand and the sensitive wipes seem to be gentle on our baby's skin. They don't appear to cause any irritation.
The pack the wipes come in is resealable which keeps the wipes nice and moist. I can find it a bit fiddly to get the wipes out of the packet which change the baby, especially only getting one wipe out the packet at a time. Saying that my wife doesn't seem to have the same issues, so that may be a Dad issue rather than an issue with the product itself. Never the less, I find this frustrating when trying to change our baby.
Other things I have found the wipes handy for a cleaning our baby's hands and face if we are out and about, cleaning my own hands and I have also cleaned dirty marks of walls in our flat too.
These are good quality, but they are a little pricey and that's why I haven't given these 5/5.
When my daughter was born, I started off with just cotton wool and water on her delicate skin. When I started to get out and about with her more, I needed some wet wipes. I heard good things about Huggies newborn wipes and was happily using those but they are expensive and I decided to shop around and try a few others. I saw the Pampers were a lot cheaper and were on offer at the time too, so decided to try them out. I chose the sensitive as baby skin is so new and delicate, I always want to use the mildest toiletries for her.
As soon as I opened the packet and took out the first wipe, I was unimpressed. Compared to the Huggies ones I was used to, these wipes are very thin and flimsy. They are fine if you just need to give a quick wipe around after a wet nappy or wipe up dribbled milk, etc they are fine, but if you have a poo of any sort (so even a pretty "clean" poo, not a super sonic up to the elbows number), you are in trouble, I found I needed to double up and use two wipes for them to be effective. They are so thin I found poo coming through onto my hands!!!
In terms of the positives, the wipes smell pleasant and were perfectly kind to my daughter's skin. Shame they are just not up to the job of wiping up anything more than non messy situations.....
This may sound odd, but I started buying these wipes years ago when I had a new leather suite! The salesman was initially trying to sell me a cleaning "system" which cost a fortune, but when he realised he was never going to get me to take it he seemed to have an attack of the conscience and said to get some baby wipes and clean it regularly with those!
I chose these because the packet said fragrance free, and obviously having spent such a lot on the suite I wanted to treat it with the same love and care as you would a baby! (Ok, well maybe not quite the same, but you know the idea!)
Six years on I'm still buying them because since having them in the house I am using them for all sorts of things - none of which are baby-bottom related.
Here are a few of the things I use them for:
- wiping table tops down, place mats or coasters,
- they are brilliant at getting "sticky" off things where you remove sticky price labels... crockery, glasses or even book covers
- removing make up
- cleaning the suite (of course!)
- wiping down the dashboard / console in the car
- cleaning marks off walls - I've used them on emulsioned walls as well as tiled walls
- cleaning my hands when I've applied hair gel or they're just feeling grubby
etc ... you get the picture!
The packs are sealed with a sticky clear oval seal which you peel back to break into the packet. You then remove the first wipe, which is very easy to do, and pull it through the slit opening. One thing I do find annoying with these is that removing one wipe always drags the next one through the opening, poking out ready for use. In order to reseal the pack, you then have to poke it back in. If you don't then obviously the next wipe dries out, and eventually it has a bad effect on the rest of the pack. Having said that, it's a personal gripe and I can definitely see the benefit of that function if you are using one after the other when using the wipes for their intended use! You don't necessarily have both hands available, so a clean wipe easily to hand is going to be a bonus - it's no doubt an excellent design feature which just doesn't happen to suit me!
When you use the wipes, they initially feel very wet indeed, but strangely when you start to use them (for whatever purpose) they never feel excessively so. If I'm using them for cleaning surfaces I usually follow with a quick buff with a cloth, but even so I wouldn't say they leave things especially streaky. When I use them on my hands or face they really live up to their sensitive tag and don't leave my skin feeling dry at all, they just feel really soft.
More often than not I pick these up when they are on offer, and never pay more than £1 a packet on average. For all the uses they have, and how effective they are, they are a household essential to me.
This is a review of Pampers Sensitive Baby Wipes which I have been using recently. I must have been given a sample pack as the empty pack only has 12 in it but I know I have used a full sized pack in the past quite recently.
I have tried and used many different baby wipes in the past few years due to having a baby (or two!) but I also used to use them previous to the mummy role to remove make up and generally freshen up when on the go. I am quite fussy about wipes and sensitive to strong smelling ones so will avoid cheaper wipes and ones that I don't like in preference of the few that make the mark in my opinion.
I am pleased to say that Pampers Sensitive Baby Wipes score highly in my opinion and work well on both removing make up and cleaning babies' bottoms!
The wipes come in the traditional baby wipe plastic packaging with a clear removable seal that you can pull the wipes from easily. My husband likes to test these by seeing if he can do it one handed (only removing one at a time) as he says that is a mark of quality! You do need a spare hand at times when changing nappies to be fair.
I found these to be quite neutral smelling (which is good) and thick quality with no tearing, that drives me mad when wipes rip as you try to remove them from the pack (Huggies are notorious for this!). Obviously you cannot flush Pampers Sensitive Baby Wipes down the toilet as they can block the drains and clog our sewers so it's best to dispose of them with the used nappy in a nappy sack (yes, I know, send it to landfill...).
Wipes are always a lot cheaper when you buy them in bulk, particularly the branded packs. Full price you can pay £2 for a pack but when on offer you can usually buy for around £1. At the moment, Asda are selling a box of 12 packs for £10 which is pretty good if you don't mind the initial outlay. There are 56 wipes in a pack which I have noticed seem to be getting smaller and smaller across all brands!
These wipes are wet enough to work without being saturated. They are sensitive to baby skin and work well in cleaning up messy hands and faces or changing nappies. Price wise they are best bought in bulk and we have used these happily on our children. A recommended baby wipe.
I have a 2 year old little girl and when I was carrying her being airst time mum I decided that I would only be using branded nappies and wipes on my little girl as I was not very familiar with unbranded products. Before my Little one was born I had piles of pampers sensitive wipes ready and waiting to use. I was drawn to this product as opposed to others as they were one of the few products I came across that had a sensitive range.
Price and where to buy pamper sensitive wipes:
You can purchase pampers sensitive wipes from and suppermarket, chemist, or high street store selling baby products as well as online. I have found the price of these wipes can very from around £1.24 to £2.79 depending on whether they are on offer or full priced. They can also be bought as a multi pack which are around the £4 mark for 3 packs. So it does pay tobshopbaround as different places have different offers at different times especially when they have a baby event on. I tend to take advantage of these savings and stock up as I have found you can never have enough wipes.
Pampers sensitive wipes packaging:
I was drawn to this packaging but not because it was bright and bold and jumping off the shelf but because it has been kept simple displaying all of the important information such as the fact that it is sensitive and recommended for newborns aswellnas the fact that pampers as a company takes money from the sale of their products to provided life saving vaccinations for newborns in third world countries. As a first time parent I found myself in aisles adding every detail on the backs of all the products I would be needed for my baby before buying anything so this really helped me. I also found that the resealableb flap worked just as well the last time I closed it as it did the first times which kept my wipes fresh and usable until the last one was gone.
Using the wipe itself:
Pampers sensitive wipes I found were very strong but also had a soft cotton like feel to them which made me confident and confortable when using them on my little one. I also found that they had just the right level of moist in them and they were not too dry and not cleaning my baby but they also were not too wet and soaking her. I found they did there job as they were meant to. I found that these wipes in comparison to pampers top competitor were of a much better quality. I have never in the 2 years of using these wipes had a wipe rip on me no matter how challenging the nappy I am changing. I have also found that when using these wipes my little girl has never experienced nappy rash or any sores of any type. These wipes are durable as well and baby friendly no matter the situation. I have fund that these are not '1 wipe wipes' which has meant each pack of pampers sensitive wipes I have bought have lasted longer that other brands.
Would I recommend pampers sensitive wipes:
I would defiantly recommend pampers sensitive wipes to first time parents that are trying to decide which product to use on their new born. I would also recomendthis to anyone who has a child that has suffered from nappy rash or who isn't happy with their current product.
- Why I Bought -
I quite often buy Pampers baby wipes to use with my baby because it is a brand I trust. A few months ago I bought a box of 12 packs of Pampers Sensitive wipes when they were on offer, but I have been buying them fairly regularly since my son was born last year.
- The Packaging -
The packet it white with the familiar Pampers logo in turquoise and yellow. It looks clean and simple. The packet states that these are sensitive wipes and that they are made with pure care lotion. There is also a photo of an adorable baby on the front and all the usual information on the back. The wipes are easy to remove from the packet and you don't end up with ten wipes in one go. There is a sticker to reseal the packet so the wipes stay wet and fresh
- The Wipes -
You get 56 wipes in a pack, which is slightly lower than the usual 60-70 wipes you find in most packs of baby wipes. The wipes are white with butterflies on them. They smell clean and fresh and have a pleasant and effective moistness to them without them being overly wet. They are reasonably thick, slightly stretchy and of a decent size. Overall this gives a good wipe which is easy to use to clean baby's bottom or face. They didn't cause any irritation to my baby, or my face when I have occasionally used them to remove my makeup. The packet states they are mild on baby's skin so you certainly wouldn't expect any irritation.
- Price and Availability -
I can see that the standard price for these is £2.47 per pack. This is very over priced and I certainly wouldn't pay more than about £1 per pack. Luckily they are often on offer and there are various multi packs available which are also regularly on offer. I paid £10 for 12 packs which I think is quite good value.
- Would I Recommend? -
I would definitely recommend these wipes as they are good quality, get the job done, are sensitive to baby's skin and are a good price when bought on offer. The only negative is that you get fewer wipes per pack than other brands.
I bought a mixture of wipes while pregnant, Huggies, Pampers and Johnsons I have by far found these to be the best. I suffer with sensitive skin and also being a first time mother I wanted the best for my daughter so stuck to only 'named' brands. I thought wipes would be much the same so didn't particularly worry about the brand name, as long as I had heard of it.
After 9 months of use Pampers sensitive are now my wipe of choice, I found various problems with the other brand which I will review at another time. Pampers sensitive do not irritate my babies skin. I have found them easy to get out of the packet and they are thick enough to do the job they are supposed to. They have a nice amount of moisture without actually soaking your baby. They clean very well. I always have a packet in my bag as well as various ones dotted around the house to mop up spills, when you start weaning your baby these really come into their own. They handle the bright orange mess that's associated with baby food with ease.
Pampers sensitive come in a white packet with blue writing. There are currently 56 wipes in a pack, when I first started buying them there were 64 but there has been no price decrease to compensate for this. Which is a bit cheeky of them, it might not seem like a lot but 8 wipes per packet over the lifetime of your babies wipe needs works out at a considerable amount of wipes. You can however find some amazing deals on these wipes in the various 'baby events' supermarkets have. They retail at about £2.50 a pack in normal circumstances but I always pay under a pound and stock up when I find good offers, I can recommend Asda for this.
My daughter was in SCBU for a number of weeks after being born as she was 13 weeks early and pampers sensitive were the wipes the hospital used. Personally I found this very reassuring as premature babies have the most sensitive of skin so if they were happy to use them so was I. They used generic nappies so it wasn't because of a 'deal' with pampers that they were used.
All in all I would recommend these wipes to any parent, if you stock up while there are offers on they cost no more than cheap brands and they are in my opinion a far superior wipe to any other I've tried. They are now the only wipes I would consider using
When I was pregnant, baby wipes were something we definitely wanted to stock up on. As first time parents, we had no idea where to start. However we knew Pampers was a well known and well trusted brand, so when we saw a box of 12 packets of wipes on offer at Asda for £10, we bought 5 lol. I wanted sensitive wipes because I felt they would be better for delicate newborn skin. These wipes are supposed to be as pure as water.
The wipes are widely available at supermarkets and places like Boots. You get 56 wipes in a pack (formerly 64!) and a single pack retails at around £1 on offer, or £1.50 not on offer. They are also available in packs of 4 for approx £6, or a box of 12 for approx £11. It's worth looking out for Asda's Baby Event, as they often reduce the boxes to £10 or sometimes even £9, which works out at 75p per packet!
The packets are white with the blue Pampers logo and a mother and baby picture on. The wipes are sensitive and state there is aloe and chamomile in them. They are alcohol free, perfume free and dermatologically tested. You get slightly less wipes in them than you used to, but they are still good value.
To open the wipes you pull up the transparent sticky tab, which exposes a perforated plastic tab which you can either remove altogether, or put back down along with the transparent tab when you re-seal the pack. To close, you simply push the wipes back in and then push down the transparent tab, which will seal the pack and stop the wipes from drying out.
The wipes are white with a butterfly design, moist but not soaking wet, and have no smell. They are standard thickness - thicker than toilet roll but not by much - and are very soft. Usually one wipe is sufficient for a wet nappy, although more than one is usually needed for a dirty one. When using more than one wipe, they do make the area quite wet, so I usually find it necessary to gently pat my daughter's bum dry with a soft towel to avoid nappy rash.
The one downfall with these wipes is that you can't always pull out just one - often you end up pulling out 3 or 4 by accident, which is ok if you need that many, but more often than not it is just a nuisance. I can't fault them in any other way though!
I find these wipes very very handy even now that my daughter is potty trained. We use them to wipe her hands, face etc. and they are very handy for wiping up emergency spills! I also use them to remove my eye makeup as I have sensitive skin/eyes and these are very gentle. They are very effective at removing waterproof mascara! I have wipes everywhere - in the house, my daughter's bag, my bag, the car etc.. they really are the best.
Having spent most of my daughters first few years buying individual packets of 'natural' brands, finding the Pampers sensitive baby wipes at 6 packs for £6 was a bit of a revelation! Not only do I have to shop less often, I save a considerable amount of money too. When my first 6 pack came close to running out, I managed to find them again on the same offer, so it's worth looking around for the saving.
Well, that's true if the wipes are any good. There's no saving to spend less and use more. So, how sensitive are they, and how well do they clean?
My daughter's skin is not particularly sensitive, but I like to use wipes when out and about for cleaning hands and faces as well, and I don't like the taste or smell of 'normal' wipes. These ones barely smell at all, and what scent there is is a clean baby powder smell. Using on hands, one wipe is enough for one pair of sticky hands. There is no taste residue, so you can use it just before eating without ill effects, and on the face it's soft and gentle. I've even used them on my own face, to no ill effect! Just a nice fresh clean feeling.
Imagine a child whose hobby is rolling in mud and you have my daughter - well, the mud is all off very quickly, and the same is true on the bum. These make for an easy changing time with no soreness. Other wipes sometimes leave a barrier which can contribute to nappy rash, but not these ones. It is as gentle as washing with water.
One last thing: these are in a soft case with a sticky resealable top, not a hard plastic top as some wipes. In other wipes, I've found the reseal to be ineffective, causing a drying out of the wipes. These packets are better designed, and I've not had a problem with the reseal.
Before I ad my baby daughter, I stocked up on all brands of baby wipes that were on offer in various places as well as using vouchers etc to pick up some packs cheaply. I also received a handful of sample packs in some of the pregnancy packs including several sample packs of these Pampers sensitive wipes with aloe and chamomile.
Like all wipes these vary greatly in price depending on offers and depending on where you purchase them. They also often come in multi packs which obviously work out much cheaper in the long run. Tesco currently have these on offer for £1.23 for a pack of 63 which is decent value in my opinion, although I have picked these up for £1 before.
Although at the moment I only use these wipes to clean my baby's bottom at a nappy change, as she grows, I'm sure I will get even more use for wiping messy mouths and hands, and so I can foresee myself using these for years to come.
As I stated at the beginning, these wipes contain aloe and chamomile and are designed for sensitive skin. It is meant to balance the skin's ph value, be cotton soft as well as being perfume free, alcohol free and dermatologically tested.
These wipes have been embossed with little butterfly and heart design and really are as soft as they claim to be. I find that although it may take two or three of these wipes to clean her bottom after a dirty nappy I do feel that they leave her skin free of irritation and most importantly clean. You can fold over the wipes to make the most of each one, but they aren't huge in size and therefore using two or three is probably necessary in any one dirty nappy change. One is ample for a wet nappy. These wipes have a clean fresh smell to them but offer no overpowering scent. The fact that they contain aloe and chamomile is appealing as any parent would want the best for their baby's skin.
In comparison to some other wipes such as huggies, I have to say that I very much like these wipes. They are very soft but at the same time thick enough to wipes the dirt away and do their job properly, while at the same time leaving my baby's skin clean and soft. I will continue to buy these when my stock of wipes runs out, but only when on offer, as I don't think any branded wipe deserves the full price that is usually charged. I will also look at the multi packs when it comes to restocking my supplies as they certainly then make them a more competitively priced product.
When you have a baby things like these feel as though they are a necessity rather than a nice thing to add. Pampers Sensitive Baby wipes are a useful aid for nappy changes, for quick cleans of baby's face or body and are handy to have when you go out and a tissue or cloth just isn't enough. But are they a necessity or simply a really nice thing to have as support to your muslin clothes, flannels and nappies?
Where to Buy:
You can buy these in any good supermarket or chemist, Mothercare do very good deals, we bought from Amazon buying 9 packs of 63 wipes for £12.99 on an offer, they actually have better offers now with a 12 box pack of 56 wipes in each pack costing £10, this is 672 wipes and is pretty good value for money, and will be the offer we use when these packs run out. I do recall when we were in Mothercare and Toys R'Us that they also had big box packs of the wipes on offer, but smugly ignored the prices as I felt i'd got a great deal at the time at Amazon.
The sensitive wipes come in a rectangular plastic packaging about the size of a computer hard drive, they are much thicker than regular face wipes, on the front of the packaging is a hand wrapped around a sleeping baby and the Pampers Sensitive logo, these are aloe and chamomile scented to make baby feel easier and more relaxed.
How to Use:
For those of the disposition that you really want to be sure of everything there is a diagram on the back showing that they can be used on babies face, body and to help wipe their bottoms, this isn't strictly necessary, but at least it can be used to appreciate that the wipes can be used on the face with no harmful effect.
To use the wipes, you simply lift the small sticky opening on the front of the packet, pull out a wipe and wipe. It is that simple, its hard to really add much here, but be careful when opening the packet as it is easy to pull two or three wipes out at once, or to leave the packet slightly open which could dry out the wipes.
We have been using the wipes for nearly 10 weeks now and they work very well, especially in a changing bag as a quick use cleaning wipe when you are out and about, they make baby smell nicer during a nappy change, they are a quick and fragrant thing to use to wipe babies face or body when you need a quick fix and can't wash or bath them immediately after a milk reflux incident. I've found they are handy for the family too when you do get caught with a milk vomit to quickly wipe away residue whilst you clean up baby and then yourself without making too much mess.
We've got through roughly one pack every ten days to two weeks, through being fairly sparse with their use, so far we have used 6 of the 9 packs so I think this is reasonably good value, we do plan to check out supermarket own brands to see if there is a cheaper alternative though, although you get a lot of wipes for your money I want to see if we can reduce our bills further and may try alternatives to this soon.
The ingredients list includes citric acid, sodium citrate, benzyl alcohol, and about 10-12 very long sounding chemical extracts, the natural aloe and chamomile additives probably aren't too natural, the touch and scent of the wipes aren't particularly interesting and are a bit bland really but then I presume this is preferable to something strongly fragranced which could affect a babies skin.
I think these are a decent product, they are very thick meaning you can catch a lot of sick or anything else coming from baby and the wipe will hold it rather than collapsing into a ball of mush, it smells ok without being too strong and you can buy a lot for £10 nowadays. You do feel reassured with the Pampers brand name that this is a product that you should be buying, but I do plan to try others just to test whether we have the best product here. These are useful, really good when we go out, and have proven to be good support for our changing routine in the house.
As an aside I do think these could be used as an alternative to face wipes too for families on a budget as the towels are thick enough to get off even a massive trowel of make up as well as baby poo!
The only complaint I have about the wipes is opening and closing the pack, there is a small plastic front which you can pull up then stick back down, when you do this and pull a wipe out, the next one immediately follows and I am always having to stuff the next wipe back into the pack causing a risk that I haven't closed the pack properly and caused all of the wipes to dry out. As I say this is a small negative and is easily manageable but it is annoying and for that reason i'm going to give these a 3 rather than 4 out of 5 as I would like a product that doesn't make me annoyed.
Overall these seem good value, easy to use and reliable, well worth checking out but shop around for the best prices.
Baby wipes always have some kind of offer on, whilst shopping in the Asda baby event just before my daughter was born I came across a box of 12 packs of Pampers Sensitive wipes for £9. This works out to 75p a packet which is a mighty saving compared to other brands and even some stores own brands. It was a steal, so I stocked up with 3 boxes.
- Packaging -
The packaging has now changed from when I first started buying these wipes. The packet is now white and light blue with the Pampers logo. There is also a picture of a mother holding her newborn baby with a blue blanket around it incorporated into the light blue of the packet. It states that the wipes are sensitive with aloe and chamomile. On the under side of the packaging is a lot of small text in a range of languages. It tells us that the wipes are perfume free, alcohol free and dermatologically tested. The packet contains 63 wipes.
- Baby wipes -
Pulling the wipes out of the packet is simple, just pull up the sticky tab and a hole will appear for the wipe to come from, whilst pulling out a wipe another can follow quite quickly so it is important to push it back in and reseal to lock in the freshness of the rest of the packet, unless of course you need to use more than one then it is very easy to pull more out mid nappy change.
The wipes are moist, a standard thickness and have a little butterfly design on them. They do a good job, during nappy changes it is very easy to wipe off the mess. I must be an expert now as usually I can use just 1 wipe to do either just a wet nappy or a dirty one too. Using more than one wipe can sometimes leave the area very moist so a spare towel (we have a special tea towel dedicated for this!) is ideal to dry the area to stop nappy rashes. These sensitive wipes don't have any fragrance, this is reassuring as any kind of scent would suggest that the wipes aren't that sensitive.
- Uses -
Baby wipes are primarily designed for changing nappies. However we use them for everything, everywhere I go now I always carry a packet with me, even if my daughter isn't with me! Wiping hands and face is a common task for us with these wipes, after meal times I use 1 wipe on the highchair tray, and 1 wipe for my daughters hands and face, they can get off even the toughest of food, spaghetti bolognaise usually needs a few more wipes! I also use these for dusting, as the wipes are quite moist they pick up all the dust. My daughter enjoys dusting with them too.
- My overall thoughts -
As they are on offer with every Asda baby event I've always kept stocked up, not having to buy separate single packets. There was even an offer with boots where a pack of 6 packets cost just £3, so that worked out at 50p a packet. At these prices who can say no?! I have about 80 packets stored away, my friends think I'm crazy, but they will always be needed!! They do a great job with ease at a great price. Definitely 5 *'s from us.
When I first had my little girl, I tried a number of different baby wipes and I think I have found my favourite!
Pampers Sensitive Baby Wipes can be bought in most places such as supermarkets, Boots, Superdrug etc. They are more expensive than other brands of wipes but I tend to buy them either in multipacks costing about £10 for 12 packs or there seems to always be a few £1 off vouchers to be used from various baby clubs. The wipes themselves have a white plastic sleeve with resealable sticker over the front for access to the wipes and to re-seal to stop the wipes from drying out. Each pack contains 63 wipes. The wipes are suitable for sensitive skin, are alcohol free and contain Aloe and Camomile extracts according to the packet. The wipes inside the pack are white in colour, have a butterfly pattern on and have a soft feel to them.
I think that these wipes are an excellent buy for a number of reasons. I think that the wipes contain just the right amount of moisture, they are not too wet so that you have to dry baby's bottom and they are not too dry so that you have to wipe harder and cause irritation on the skin.
I also think that the wipes come out of the pack much easier than other brands I have tried, you can actually remove one wipe at a time with just one hand! I have struggled in the past with other brands which have had lots of wipes come out at the same time. The wipes are also of a good size so that you can fold them over and use for a few wipes rather than just one, so you can use less of them when cleaning up a number 2! They also don't rip and are stretchy.
These wipes have caused absolutely no reactions or rashes on my baby, and they make her skin feel lovely and soft. I have also used these on her face and they haven't irritated her skin in any way.
I have also found myself using these as facial cleansing wipes to remove my makeup, they do a very good job at removing even my mascara and make my face feel very clean. Specifically designed facial cleansing wipes are a lot more expensive, so I would rather use these as they do the same job.
I don't think I would use another wipe now I've found these!
I have been using these wipes for about 6-7 months after my son had an awful reaction to the Simple baby wipes - as gentle as water my bum! I tend to purchase these online from Boots as they are pretty much always on offer although it's best to get the 6 packs as they are generally sold as 2 x 6 packs for £10 which is pretty cheap.

The wipes are described as being suitable for sensitive skin, are alcohol free and contain Aloe and Camomile extracts which are soothing to the skin and makes the product smell lovely. The wipes themselves are soft yet strong enough for even the most dirtiest of bottoms and have an attractive (but pointless) butterfly pattern on them. I find that the wipes are perfect with regards to moisture content as I've found that some are too wet leaving the bottom soggy and takes ages to dry e.g. Huggies or too dry requiring a heavier hand with regards to removing poo causing irritation e.g. Johnsons.
I have found these wipes to be the best and I've tried all the main brand ones. My son has very sensitive skin and these haven't caused any outbreaks of eczema and have even been used on his face when out and about after eating. I honestly believe these are the most hypoallergenic wipes out there and wouldn't try any other.
