“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Cleansing Wipes / fragrance free: yes / What it does: Cleanses, „
The one thing that I've had plenty of experience with in the last 12 months or so is baby wipes, these along with nappies are in constant demand at home when my young son is around and I must have tried each and every brand on offer at one point or another. They all share the same similarities and frustrations and I've yet to master the art of removing a single wipe from a pack without 2 or 3 others coming along for the ride, something that I'm sure is a deliberately wasteful ploy by the manufacturers to make you run out of the things quicker than you need to and therefore be in need of them once more. I tend to buy whatever brand of baby wipes is on offer when I need to stock up and the last time I bought some I ended up getting Tesco's own variety, the subject of this review. My pack of 64 Tesco baby wipes is from the "Tesco loves Baby" range, it contains 64 wipes and the plastic pack is adorned with illustrations of hearts along with the boastful claims that they "as mild as cotton wool and water", they're "gentle enough for eczema prone skin", contain "98% purified water" and are "dermatologically tested". I paid £2.00 for 2 packs making them a pound each which seemed to be very good value for money when compared to the price of some bigger branded counterparts and as long as they could do the job that they were designed to do I had no further expectations from them than that. What I do like about my pack compared to some of the others is that Tesco include a rather handy plastic 'lid' that sits on top of the pack opening. This helps to stop the wipes from drying out as they are prone to do at times when there's just a sticky plastic flap to protect them, an often pointless inclusion provided by the other manufacturers, and as it clicks into place quite firmly it also prevents my son's inquisitive and wandering fingers from getting access to the wipes when I'm not watching what he's doing. With the lid open and the seal removed the wipes look pretty much the same as every other wipe I've used; they're a square shaped, damp cloth that is soft to the touch and fragrance free although I do find that these ones from Tesco feel a little wetter than some others I've used and seem to have some sort of skin-conditioning agent that is a little bit like moisturiser and do initially leave a soapy residue behind. In use I find the wipes to be very good, being that little bit wetter than some others they do clean my son's skin very well and have never caused him any irritation. A messy nappy is never a nice thing to have to deal with and, as any parent will know, there can be a lot of 'smearing' involved with the clean up, these wipes are the perfect size for doubling over if necessary to maximise their use and do manage to remove all traces of the stuff you're trying to get rid of. They are very soft to the touch, a lot softer than Johnson's wipes which I find can be quite coarse sometimes and whilst they are a 'supermarket' brand I think that Tesco have produced a rather good product here. The only niggle I have with them is that they do tend to clump together in the pack so removing them one at a time is virtually impossible, it's a tricky enough job as it is trying to clean a baby's bum when all they want to do is squirm out of the way and it's not always practical to have the wipes waiting so sometimes it is a bit of a juggling act trying to keep baby in place and dealing with a dirty nappy without then being faced with a wipe that won't come out of the pack because it's stuck to the ones underneath it. That said this is an issue I have with all baby wipes from every brand so it's not a problem I have with Tesco in particular and even now, 12 months on, I still can't get to grips with removing them one by one. For how soft they are and how well they clean I think that Tesco Baby Wipes are a real winner and I would definitely buy them again and would also recommend them to other parents too, they feel a lot nicer than Johnson's or Huggies and I'm actually rather impressed that they are a supermarket brand and cost less than the others. I can't award a 5 star rating for them simply because of how tricky they can be to remove, for everything else though they're perfect so 4 stars it is. Thanks for reading my review.
As soon as we passed the 20 week stage in my pregnancy, I started to pick up packs of wipes and nappies as part of my weekly shop to start and get stocked up. At this time, I had no idea what was good, bad etc so I tended to pick up whatever wipes were on offer at the time, this being one of them. The wipes come in a plastic pack which has a plastic lid on top; I actually prefer wipes with this type of lid rather than the sticker as I find that they do a better job at keeping the wipes nice and moist. The lid is easy to open single handed, which is always a bonus as I constantly seemed to need three hands when Lauren was younger. Removing the wipes from the pack was really easy, although sometimes if I pulled too hard, I would end up pulling couple out, but I didn't find this too much of a problem as most times I would need a few wipes anyway (especially if using them for bottom changing time or at early weaning times!). The price of the wipes is a little more expensive now, approximately £1.20 per pack, I know when I first started to by them they were about 80p a pack of 64 so worked out quite good value. What I do like is that quite often, Tesco do these in a value pack and then do a fantastic offer, such as 12 packs for £5.99, which works out at a fantastic deal, especially if you compare to branded baby wipes. I think from memory too, there were promoted quite heavily when I joined the Tesco Mother & Baby Club and I regularly received either money off or extra points coupons from Tesco's. Despite being cheaper that other brands, they are quite good quality. Other cheaper brands have felt quite dry; these are quite moist and tend to stay this way, even when the pack has been opened. They are quite thick too, I have used them to clean up at home and they don't tear easily but most importantly, upon touch, the wipes are quite soft which is great. The wipes are designed for baby and I have always found them to be gentle on Lauren's skin, I have also occasionally used them on my face to remove my makeup (if I have ran out of cleaners or facial wipes), but I also find there are great as cleaning the sides down or keeping my trainers bright white. Although, Lauren is 6 this year, I still buy wipes as they have so many uses and are ideal to keep in my bag for those little accidents when out and about. Overall, I find these are just as good as more premium brands on the market yet they are a lot cheaper and for that reason, I would recommend and give 5 out of 5 stars. Thanks for reading.
We seem to use a lot of baby wipes in our house! I use them for all sorts of things, obviously when changing nappies, wiping grubby hands and faces. They are also great for wiping grimy marks off door frames. Tesco's have changed a lot of their products packaging lately. These are pale green with brightly coloured heart all over and a cute giraffe image dotted in between the hearts. The lift up plastic flap snaps shut tightly which is good as it means my daughter struggles to open it so it saves the wipes being pulled out all over the floor! On the lift up plastic lid there is a red heart 'Tesco loves baby' in white lettering. Down the right hand side of the packet there is product details highlighted in bright circles, such as 'Gentle enough for newborn skin' 'Quilted softness' 'With cleansing milk for soft skin' 'Dermatologically Tested'. On the back of the packet it lists the ingredients, what the wipes can be used for, it mentions Tesco baby club. This pack contains 64 wipes and they are fragrance free. I find it very easy to take just one wipes out at a time which is ideal because I hate wasting them! Easy to do as well with one hand which is very useful when changing a dirty nappy! They are white in colour and quite thick. There is the usual warnings on the packet about keeping them out of reach of children, and DO NOT FLUSH WIPES DOWN THE TOILET. I think it is important to highlight this as people are very casual with flushing all sorts of things down there, when it just causes problems then for someone else! -- Ingredients -- Aqua, Cetearyl Isononanoate, Glycerin, Ceteareth-20, Ceteareth Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Ceteareth-12, Polysorbate 20, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf juice, Chamomilla Recutita Flower Extract, Disodium EDTA, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Citrare, Phenoxyethanol, Benzoic Acid, Dehydroacetic Acid, Citric Acid. Obviously these are a Tesco branded product and are priced at £1.09 a packet but also are on offer at the moment for 'any 4 for £3.40'. These are good quality wipes for a good price, as they contain cleansing milk with extracts of aloe vera and chamomile I have no problems using these on my daughters. They have not made their skin sore or irritated at all. I will be buying these again. Thanks for reading.
I normally use Boots baby wipes but whenever we run out and I need some in an emergency I know I can pop to my local Tesco express to pick up some of theirs. It's amazing how many wipes we get through in a day what with two little ones in the house, I not only use baby wipes for nappies but also for cleaning off the table after meals, cleaning food the kids have put on my clothes and a lot of other jobs around the home. These wipes from Tesco are come in a plastic packet with a handy plastic flip lid on the top which makes it really easy to get the wipes out of this packet. Then because the lid snaps shut it keeps the wipes inside nice and moist and fresh and I've never had a problem with them drying out or going bad which is great. On the side of the packet it says that these wipes are soft, strong and quilted. They definitely have a quilted consistency to them which I think makes them a bit thicker than the Boots wipes and I like this about them when I need to really wipe up some horrible messes. I find the quilted bit wipes up poop a little bit better than the smooth ones as it provides a bit of friction so this is definitely an advantage with some of my son's nappies! The wipes are enriched with baby lotion and Tesco say that they have also been specially formulated with extracts of aloe vera and chamomile to help protect and soothe baby's skin during nappy changing. They also leave a protective layer on the skin to help protect against nappy rash. My son has had no reaction to these wipes at all and I do find them nice and soft when I am using them which is nice. They are fragrance free so all you really smell is that nice clean smell you get after using them. They are suitable for newborns although thankfully I am past that stage now. There are 64 wipes in each bag and it costs £1.09 from Tesco but they often run a deal on them and at the moment that is three packets for £2.70. I always take advantage of the deals because I know I am going to use them. A nice baby wipe.
Before becoming a parent I hadn't realised what an essential,piece of baby kit wipes are. For something so small it is amazing the mess they can created. Initially I used wipes to clean any mess off myself or when travelling with my baby. As a newborn I used cooled boiled water and cotton wool to clean the little one but after a while moved onto wipes all the time. Naturally I wanted to make sure the wipes didn't irritate my baby's delicate skin so wanted to use wipes that are fragrance free. These wipes comes in a pale blue packet and each packet contains 64 fragrance free wipes. The packet clearly states they are suitable for newborns and dermatologically tested. Certainly when I have used them on my baby he has not shown any signs of irritation. Well perhaps irritation to me if I am taking too long! One of the things I like about these wipes is that they are easy to pull out and just one at a time comes out. This is important to me when I have a rather dirty and wriggly baby to clean. Now my baby has started solids these wipes are really proving their worth as dirty nappies are that bit more challenging not to mention the food which my baby manages to spread over his face, hands, hair and anything within a 2 metre radius! The wipes are a good size and strong so can deal with mess fairly easily. Although they are sting they also feel soft so my baby doesn't complain too much when I use them on him. The wipes apparently contain aloe vera and chamomile which help sooth the skin. Although I sometimes use them on his face I obviously stay clear of his eye area as the packet states you should avoid direct contact with eyes. If this does happen you should rinse them with water. Recently my baby had a bug which meant I was changing his nappy every hour. These wipes were great at cleaning him and he didn't develop nappy rash or any other form of irritation despite the frequent changing. I am amused to see that the guidance on the packet says you should use the wipes within 6 months of opening as it is pretty easy to go through a pack in 6 days! Again another advantage of these wipes is the price. Although they may only be 10 to 20 p cheaper than the well known brand names as you will no doubt be buying lots of them this does add up over time and why pay more when this product does a great job. They cost around 98p but sometimes can be picked up slightly cheaper when Tesco have one of their promotions on. incidentally it is worthwhile to join Tesco's baby and toddler club so you are aware of promotions. Overall I have to say these a great buy and I am not surprised the have a Mother and Baby Gold Award as they deal with mess and are skin to your baby's skin. These are certainly an essential in your changing bag and at home. A tip I have is to keep an empty packet which you can put a few wipes into if you are just popping out to the shops to keep the weight of your bag down.
When I finished work to start my maternity leave a few weeks ago I was bought several presents from everyone including a large hamper and a large gift bag full of baby stuff all of which was stuff I was going to need and that was practical. One of the items was a packet of Tesco Baby Ultra Soft Fragrance Free Wipe, baby wipes, it was definitely one of the essential items I was going to need and probably get through a lot of, I had already stocked up on various types of baby wipes by using coupons and with free samples but Tesco Baby Ultra Soft Wipes was a brand I didn't actually have. I recently decided to give the wipes a go, I had already checked out the price and if Jayden got on ok with them and they were of a decent quality they were going to work out much cheaper to buy compared to other brands so I was keen to see what they were actually like Packaging The Tesco Baby Ultra Soft Fragrance Free Wipes come in a pale blue plastic packet, similar to that of other brands, however the main difference with the packaging of these wipes was that instead of the plastic tab that you use to open them with and have to re-stick back these had a plastic lid on top of the packet, this simply pulls open and clicks shut and is perfect for keeping the wipes moist and there was no worry of the tab loosing its sticky which frequently happens which meant that the wipes would not dry out. The plastic lid had a pale blue sticker in the middle of it, this has the name of the product written on it in a darker blue writing, it also contains logos to demonstrate that this product is recommended by bother the Tesco Baby and Toddler Club and has the Mother and Baby Gold Award for 2010/11. The rest of the front of the packet contains various symbols which inform you of different facts about the product. The back of the packet contains further information about the wipes including the ingredients, a bit about the wipes, directions for use and warnings, this is all written in dark blue writing inside white squares making it easy to read and follow. Some of the information and symbols is repeated on either side of the packet as well. When you lift the plastic lid there is an inner label which covers the hole that the wipes are removed from, you simply peel this off to reveal the opening for the wipes, this is of a decent size allowing you to easily get the wipes out of the packet. The Wipes The Tesco Baby Ultra Soft Wipes are plain white in colour and to be honest look just any other baby wipes, they are a rectangle shape and when removed from the packet are quite large and of a decent size. The Tesco Baby Wipes are described as being soft, strong and quilted. When I first removed one of the wipes from the packet you could see evidence of them being slightly quilted with a faint small hexagon pattern on the wipes, I wasn't really sure how a baby wipe could be quilted as they are all of a similar thickness, however the wipes did feel soft to touch so I knew that they were going to be gentle on Jaydens skin. The wipes are also described as being suitable for newborns and are dermatological approved again this made them ideal for me to use when changing Jaydens nappy and also when he has his bottle. The wipes are fragrance and alcohol free making them ideal for sensitive skin, they do contain aloe vera and chamomile, this is designed to help protect and sooth the skin during nappy changing, they leave a protective layer on the skin which helps to protect against nappy rash. Price & Availability Obviously this product is only available in Tesco as this is one of their own brand products. In the packet you get 64 wipes and this packet costs just 98p which personally I think is excellent value for money. When you have a baby you do go through a lot of baby wipes whether its during feeding of nappy changing however I did find that the packet lasted a reasonable amount of time, but at such a low price once my stock pile has gone down I think I will be stocking up on these. The wipes also come in a fragranced alternative, however I personally like the fragrance free ones so will be sticking to these. Warnings The Tesco Baby Wipes do not have any major warnings on them other than to avoid contact with eyes and should this happen you need to rinse them with clean water. The only other warning on the packaging is not to flush the wipes down the toilet. My Opinion When I first removed the wipes from the packet I was pleased at how moist they were, I first used these wipes when changing Jaydens nappies, they were of a good size and I have to agree that they did feel strong and did not fall apart when I was using them. The wipes did an excellent job of cleaning his skin and did not irritate him at all. I was very impressed with the price of these wipes, they lasted a reasonable amount of time making them very good value for money. When I have used the wipes they leave my babies skin feeling clean and fresh, I have even used these to wipe his face with after he has had his bottle. The wipes are very soft to touch making them gentle to use. Overall I have been very pleased with my Tesco Baby Ultra Soft Wipes, I will definitely be using these again in the future and would recommend them to anyone.
With toddler twins, as I'm sure you can imagine, I've used a fair few baby wipes over the last 19 months. Whilst pregnant I did the normal stocking up of whatever wipes were on offer, thinking a wipe is a wipe and that any well known brand would do the job. I spent a week in hospital with the girls where the staff had us using their special disposable cloths and a bowl of luke warm water so there was no risk of any allergic reaction. Once home I started working through my stockpile of wipes and soon found that they weren't all the same. Far from it! The Tesco own ultra soft fragrance free wipes soon emerged as my favourite. Like the packet The blue, pleasant on the eye packet is made of a tough plastic and I've never experienced it tearing. On the top of the pack is a solid plastic lid which clips open and close to prevent your wipes from drying out. This is one of my favourite features as I found that packs with sticker closings stopped sticking easily before I had finished the pack or would stick to other things when in my changing bag. These can be easily closed one handed and you know that they're not going to dry out. When you open the lid on a new pack there is a tear off seal which you remove to open the pack. This always gives me reassurance that it is a new pack. The writing on the pack tells you that the wipes were specially developed by babycare experts which is reassuring to know and that they are suitable for newborns. I wanted to be able to use them from birth and must admit to assuming that all baby wipes would be suitable from birth. Not so keen on pack size These wipes come in packets of 64 which it says on the front in a couple of places (in a slightly smaller font than it did when the pack size was 80!) I preferred having more wipes but all the big brands seem to have gone down the size reduction rather than price increase route. Ultra soft wipes These wipes are fragrance free, I found that some of that packs I'd bought when stocking up were fragranced. I didn't like the smell of these and so stopped using them and although Tesco do a fragranced variety in a green pack I only buy the blue packs. Advertised as Soft, Strong and Quilted they are all of these things. They have body lotion in them which leaves babys skin soft. The wipes hold their shape really well not stretching or sticking to each other when you pull them from the pack. Being able to get them out one handed is a big advantage when you are holding baby's legs in the other. They are a thick wipe which does a really good job when cleaning up baby. The wipes are dermatologically approved, neither of my little ones have particularly sensitive skin to be able to comment on this beyond the fact that they haven't had any reaction to them. As with all wipes I've tried the few at the bottom of the pack tend to be quite wet compared to the rest of the pack but I've just got used to this over time and guess it's just one of those things. Other uses I find myself using these wipes for lots of other cleaning up jobs. They are great for cleaning up little ones faces and hands and wiping over their toys. I'm often seen cleaning marks off the sofa with them too, they do a great job! Award winning These wipes won a Mother & Baby magazine Gold award in 2010/11 and they get my vote. Price Tesco usually sell these wipes for 98p a pack but they often have them on promotion, for example at the moment they are 3 for £2.
A packet of baby wipes is always on my weekly shopping list these days and with some bad teething nappies, we seem to be going through wipes even faster. So, like most people, I like to save pennies where I can, and when I noticed Tesco had their own range of baby wipes with a pack of 64 costing 98p I thought they were worth a try. One of the reasons I picked up a pack of these wipes as well, was that Tesco offer a fragrance free range as well, which I much prefer to use on my daughter. This pack of ultra soft fragrance free wipes is, according to the packaging, a winner of a gold mother and baby award as part of the Tesco baby range. On the front of the pack it also states that these wipes are: soft strong quilted specially developed by babycare experts It also claims that these wipes are suitable fore newborns and are dermatologically approved. On the reverse of the pack it states that these wipes have been 'specially formulated with extracts of aloe vera and chamomile to help protect and soothe baby's skin during nappy changing.' It also claims to leave a 'protective layer on the skin to help protect against nappy rash'. An obvious advantage of these wipes that you can see from the outside of the packaging is that there is a sealable lid, rather than a plastic peeling, meaning the wipes should not dry out the same. In regards to the claims that are made by Tesco on the packaging of this product, I would agree that each wipe is soft, although I would argue that there are softer wipes on the market! In terms of strength, they are definitely strong, as I have used plenty to clean up a very messy nappy, and they certainly have never fell apart or shown any signs of doing so. Each wipe is quilted but whether this a necessity when it comes to baby wipes is in question in my eyes. The biggest downside of these wipes in my view is that I think they are quite dry. THere isn't a lot of moisture in them meaning that you when you use them on baby's skin there don't wipe over smoothly, there is a little bit more friction, which I don't really like against my daughter's skin. I like the wipe to to smoothly clean the area leaving it feeling soft and moisturised. Now, I know these wipes don't claim to moisturise the skin but they do say they leave a protective layer on skin to protect against nappy rash, and although I have not noticed any difference on my daughter's bottom in that it isn't any redder etc than normal, I wouldn't say that it is particularly moisturised, in comparison to other wipes. There are definite good points about these wipes in that they are a good price, are nice and soft, fragrance free and come with a sealable lid, however, I really dont think they are as soft or offer the moisturising qualities to baby's skin as other leading wipes do. I just think they are on the dry side. I would buy them again, but only when there are no offers on the better brands.
As a busy mother of two daughters - 5 years old and almost 2 years old - I am always looking to get the best quality products for the best price. We go through a LOT of baby wipes in our house! They get used at mealtimes for sticky hands and mouths, wash time for getting inside ears properly, and of course at change time for my two year old! So it stands to reason then that I want to get the best quality, best value wipes I can - Tesco My Baby fragrance free wipes are the best for me. Both my girls have sensitive skin and mild eczema on their bodies - mainly arms and legs but sometimes on their faces. I have been through every baby wipe brand known to man, and Tesco My Baby wipes were the best I found for not irritating their very sensitive skin. Some other brands use far too much fragrance or are too wet, so more of the liquid gets onto their skin, thus irritating it. Tesco My Baby fragrance free wipes have no smell at all and seem to be incredibly gently. I can quite happily use these on my daughters' faces at mealtimes, and they never show signs of a breakout or any redness. The wipes are soft and have just the right amount of moisture to them, for the most part. My one complaint with these is that sometimes they get a bit soggy towards the end of the pack - they seem to soak up any remaining liquid and keep it there like a sponge! That makes the last wipes in the pack quite difficult to use, and really aren't suitable for hands and faces, as they are too wet. These wipes retail at about £1 for 80, or a multipack of 4 packs of 80 for £3.80, which is a really reasonable price when you consider some brands charge over £2 a pack!! In summary I am confident in my using these wipes on either of my daughters, safe in the knowledge they aren't going to irritate their delicate skin.
I've been buying these Tesco baby wipes for years now because I love them! Most brands of wet wipes have a sticky flap of plastic attached to one side of the opening so that you can reseal the pack once they've been opened and in my experience this isn't always very effective as the flap soon loses stickiness or gets stuck to anything but the surface it's meant to, allowing dirt to get into the packet and the wipes to dry out. The Tesco wipes have a hard plastic lid that clicks open and closed, and keeps the wipes fresh, moist and neat and tidy. Aside from the fact that I really like the wipes themselves this is definitely a huge plus for me. The wipes themselves are quilted and really soft as well as being incredibly durable. Of all the wipes I have tried they have the best feel to them in my opinion. I've tried the fragranced ones but personally prefer the fragrance free - the packaging says that they are dermatologically approved and suitable for newborns. I use them mostly around my eyes to remove my mascara and to sort out any make up smudges and they don't sting my eyes at all, but I use them for just about everything - they're great to have in your bag if you want a freshen up while you're out somewhere. I use them to clean up spills and things too, they are so versatile. I recently started using them when I change my brother too, as we get through so many I convinced my folks to give these a try as they are so much cheaper and I think they agree that these are better, particularly when you take the price and the better lid into account. Sometimes the wipes at the bottom of the pack are damper than the ones above them which can give them a tendency to cling instead of glide over my brother's skin and takes the skin a bit longer to dry. You get 80 wipes in a pack and cost 98p at full price though they seem to be on offer more often that not. They also come in packs of 4 x 80 at £3.80.
Since I had my baby daughter last December I've found that I now use wipes for a hundred and one different jobs as well as changing nappies, I am constantly using them to wipe down my leather sofas to clean up the sick and to wipe down toys, high chair, floor, both of our clothes and even the carpet! So I decided to try and save some pennies and tried out the cheaper baby wipes in Tesco, I think they are 80p a pack. The baby wipes come in a blue pack for the fragrance free and green for fragranced. Each packet contains 80 wipes. Both packs have a useful plastic pop up lid on the top for you to take the wipes out from and close afterwards to keep them moist (although I don't actually think it works). The packets says that the wipes are dermatologically tested and enriched with a mild and gentle moisturising lotion and contain natural extracts of aloe vera and chamomile. The wipes are white in colour. When I used these wipes on my daughter I found that they were gentle on her skin and didn't irritate her in any way or cause any nappy rash. I also use them on her face as she has a habit of rubbing her porridge all over her face and they caused no irritation at all. However, I did notice a few problems with these wipes. The wipes that are at the top of the pack are very dry and don't do a very good job of cleaning, and the wipes at the bottom of the pack are very wet and I found myself using a towel to dry my daughter's bottom as it was very wet from the wipes. I would possibly suggest turning the pack upside down to bring the moisture back up to the top. I also found that sometimes if I am trying to take the wipes out with one hand lots of wipes come out at the same time and I have to try and put them back in. I think that although the wipes work out cheaper per wipe, the wipes are smaller than other brands and so you end up needing to use more. I think I would prefer to stock up on Pampers wipes when they are on special offer than use these - false economy in my opinion.
I am a regular buyer of baby wipes for my baby son and i was originally only buying Johnsons but they are quite expensive so i've recently started trying out other brands, in particular supermarket ones to see if i can find some that are good quality at a good price. First of all i'm very surprised at how many wipes you get in this Tesco pack for the small price. They cost me 97p and they contain 80 wipes. All of the other wipes alongside it on the shelves in tesco were at least £1.50 and that was for only 60 or so wipes. So you do get a lot for your money. Quality wise, they certainly aren't poor. They are fragrance free which is nice as i know they won't irritate my babys skin and just like the title of them suggests, they are ultra soft so they are very kind indeed to my baby. One thing i've found with supermarket brand baby wipes as that they don't contain very much moisture so they feel a little bit dried out, that was the case with these wipes. They had just enough moisture on them to clean my baby but not quite as much as i'd of liked and i can see these drying out very quickly if i leave the pack even slightly open so i'll have to be careful of that. The packaging of the wipes is great, they now come in a colourful blue packet and have a very easy to use plastic dispenser lid for removing the wipes easily. I will more than likely buy these wipes again in the future because you do get a lot of them for your money. If they had just a little bit more moisture to them though, they would be perfect.
When I had my oldest boy 5 years ago I bought all the premium brands of nappies, wipes and even nappy sacks in the belief that they would be gentler on my baby and work better. Over the years I have finally worked out that that is not always the case! Since having my second wee boy two years ago I think I have finally worked out which brand works best for me and when it comes to wipes it is Tesco Ultra Soft Cloth Wipes - fragrance free. Like most mums I use wipes for a hundred and one different jobs - from the obvious changing of nappies to the less obvious wiping down my leather sofas. They also remove pencil and crayon from walls; clean faces, hands and feet; are incredibly useful at my wee ones art class and have also taken a coffee mark out of my jeans! Quite worrying actually that they have the oomph to do that and yet be sensitive on a little ones skin but that does appear to be the case. In the past I tended to buy Pampers Sensitive Wipes as both my boys have sensitive skin. However I have found that the Tesco fragrance free wipes are just as gentle on their skin. They are usually on a special offer (currently 3 packs for £2.25) which makes them incredibly good value. So not only do they work well but they are also cheap. However, the best thing in my opinion about the Tesco brand of wipes is the packaging. The bit you take the wipe out of has a solid plastic lid rather than just a piece of plastic you peel back and forward. I think the solid plastic lid means the wipes stay moist for longer as it provides a firmer seal on the packet than the peel back and forward technique which I always seem to end up with bits of fluff and food and who knows what else stuck to! I tend to keep one pack in my bag for when I'm out and about and so they tend not to be used so quickly. With other brands they did dry out before I finished the pack but with the Tesco variety this isn't the case. My one criticism of the Tesco variety is that by the time you get to the end of the pack the last few wipes can be too moist (I presume because the moisture goes to the bottom of the pack from the wipes above) and so when you use one the skin is left damp and can get sore. You therefore have to ensure baby is dried after using the wipe which is a bit of a pain. Overall I do think that this is one area where pennies can be saved without using a poorer quality product on your little ones. I think the Tesco brand is just as good as Pampers and Huggies etc and so you really aren't having to sacrifice on quality. I now rely so much on wipes around the house that I'm sure I'll continue to buy these wipes long after my little one has left nappies far behind!
I have an 8 month old son who is currently teething and seems to throw up a lot as a result - so baby wipes are stocked to the dozen in our household! Tesco always seem to have baby wipes on all kinds of different offers and I think their current one is 3 for £2.30 (or it was last time I bought them). Now I have used probably all brands and types of baby wipes and I think these are hands down the best! They are just the right moistness, size and are not heavily perfumed. Once they're opened they're to be used within six months but I think if you have a baby then this won't be a problem at all! I use them on everything; to wipe down toys that get food or puke on them, my son's high chair, our sofas, the floor when he is sick on it, his clothes and my clothes! I toyed with the idea of using washable wipes but to be honest we go through about 40 wipes a day (may be an exaggeration but it feels like it!). They don't leave any marks on fabrics and the particular ones we use for my son have extracts of aloe vera (great for inflammation) and chamomile. They have pictures of cute jungle animals on the front and come in a gender neutral light green colour. Our wipes have 80 in them which is a generous amount compared to some of the other brands that only have 72 or sometimes 52 wipes - that just won't cut it when you have a baby as you'll go through them so much!
I thought as I did the review on Tesco brand nappies I would move on to the baby wipes. The ones I am reviewing are my baby's ultra soft cloth wipes. Fragrance free wipes can be found in blue packets and fragranced in green packets. They cost 87p or 3 for £2.30 (current long running offer) and these are the main brand I use. According to the packaging they are dermalogically tested mind and gentle and have extracts of aloe vera and chamomile. There are 80 wipes per packet. I have three young children so go through wipes so quickly it's unreal. I find these wipes perfect they are what they say they are wet wipes not too dry not to wet. They are average size wipes and quite thick. They have a plastic lid that you lift to enter the pack and then a simple hole in the pack for the wipes to be removed. My daughter has eczema and I use the fragrance wipes and it does not seem to affect it or set it off. The only negative that I can see with these wipes is it says each wipe pops up so it can be removed with one hand but I find that with certain packs this does not happen as they clump together and you end up with more than just one wipe more like a handful. There are many uses for baby wipes i use them for my babys, wiping my make up off and cleaning just about anything. I would recommend these wipes as they do the job they say and with the cost of nappies and baby wipes already high why pay more?
