When my first daughter was born I would only use the so called superior brands of baby wipes to give her the best, I then found the supermarkets own were just as good so I began to use then and found that they were ok but had I been able to afford it I would have preferred the more expensive wipes. When my second daughter came along I thought I would use the supermarkets wipes as we hadn't had any problems with them previously so I was surprised when I started to stock up and found that if you were buying in bulk you could get the better brands for a better price than the Tescos ones. For example Tescos own wipes sell at 3 packs for £2.70 but if you are willing to buy 12 packs at a time of the pampers then you can generally pick them up for £9 therefore making the Tescos own version 90p a pack and the pampers 75p a pack.
The pampers wipes comes in a sea green and bright blue packet with a pull back plastic flap for dispensing, there are 72 wipes in each packet and one the front there is also the Pampers logo and a picture of a baby and a duck in a bath which I find to be a bit of a strange picture as why would you need baby wipes if your baby was in the bath? On the back of the packet there is a lot of writing in a lot of different languages but in English you are told that the wipes are soap free, alcohol free and dermatologically tested. You also get a list of ingredients on the back the main three being aqua, citric acid and peg-40 hydrogenated castor oil.
On opening the packet the plastic flap peels back easily with no tearing which is obviously a good thing as this is the flap which stops the wipes from drying out, the wipes are very good with this and even at the bottom of the packet they are moist but not soaking wet. Each wipes is quite thin in comparison to some of the other brands such as Huggies but it is also good as it isn't too stiff to use, the wipes are textured and complete the many jobs I use them for very well with no ripping. The wipes are lightly fragranced but don't really smell of much apart from that they smell nice and clean. Dispensing the wipes is generally easy and they don't seem to clump together so when you are trying to get a wipe whilst holding little legs in the air this is not a problem.
My daughter has been getting quite a sore bum of late which I gather is down to the dreaded teething and these wipes have not aggravated it in any way, they are nice and gentle on the skin and leave her as soft as a babies bum which you would be hoping for. I would not buy a single pack of these as they retail for about £2.50 a pack but as a bulk buy they are better value than the supermarkets and much nicer wipes, highly recommended.
Summary: Great wipes and in bulk better value than supermarket brands
