Tesco My Baby Top to Toe Wash
Advantages: Smells lovely and is nice and gentle
Disadvantages: None at all for us
Before Jayden was born my parents brought me and my husband some baby essentials ready for his arrival, one of these items was a large bottle of Tesco Baby Head to Toe Gentle Wash, I have used Tesco own brand of shower gels etc myself and have always been pleased with them so I was sure that this would be the same and with such a large bottle I was hoping it was going to be long lasting.
The Tesco Baby Head to Toe Gentle Wash comes in a large plastic transparent but slightly frosted bottle, this has a yellow pump on the top which can be unscrewed and removed if you need to. The label on the front and back of the bottle is clear so that it looks like all of the information is written directly onto the bottle. On the front of the bottle is the name of the product Tesco Baby Head to Toe Gentle Wash, all written in blue. Just beneath this is a statement about the product, this is written in a yellowy orange colour which is a little hard to read, there is further information about the product at the bottom of the bottle and this is written in the same dark blue colour. The only information on the front of the bottle is a pinky coloured circle with a further statement about the head to toe wash. All of the information on the back of the bottle is written in blue, this includes information about the product, helpful tips, directions for use, warnings and the ingredients, this is very clearly set out and easy to read.
The Tesco Baby Head to Toe Gentle Wash has a pale yellow colour to it, it is of a reasonable thickness meaning it does not run straight off of the sponge, yet it is not too thick and can easily be pumped out of the bottle. This head to toe wash is said to be specially developed by baby care experts and is suitable for newborn babies. This product has a no tears formula and is soap free but at the same time will cleanse your baby's skin, so I was confident that this would be gentle and not irritate Jayden's skin, I can also agree that it is a no tears formula as a small amount did get in Jayden's eye one day and he didn't even notice. Tesco Baby Head to Toe Wash is also paediatrician approved, dermatologically tested and hypoallergenic all of which gave me confidence that this was going to be gentle on his skin, further information which gave me confidence that the product is gentle is that it is pH balanced and paraben free.
I particularly like the fragrance of this wash, it is mild which is ideal for a baby's skin as I didn't want anything that smelt too strong, it has a very light floral smell to it, this is long lasting and I can still smell it on Jayden's skin well into the evening several hours after his bath. It is a product that can be used on his hair and skin and after washing his hair with this it feels lovely and soft and again the fragrance stays for several hours. The product really does leave his skin smell clean and fresh and this lasts for ages.
Directions for Use
Using the product is very easy you simply pump a small amount of the wash onto your hand or sponge and massage gently into your baby's wet hair and skin until it lathers then rinse thoroughly. I have tried applying it using both my hand and a baby sponge and personally I prefer using a sponge as the product does lather up much easier.
These are standard for this type of product and include
* Keep out of reach of children
* Avoid contact with eyes, if this occurs rinse immediately, this is a no tears formula but it is not recommended that you get it into eyes.
Price and Availability
Obviously the Tesco Baby Head to Toe Gentle Wash is only available from Tesco as it is one of their own brand products, the 500ml bottle costs just £1.08, although it is currently on offer for two bottles for £2.00. Personally I think this product is excellent value for money, a large bottle is extremely cheap to buy and also it is very long lasting, you really do not need much of this product at a time a small amount goes a long way so it is not something you need to buy that often despite using it every day.
I have been using Tesco Baby Head to Toes Gentle Wash on Jayden for a few weeks now and have been very pleased with the results. This product is extremely gentle on his skin and causes no irritation, it has a lovely fragrance which lasts a long while on both his skin and hair. I like the fact that you can use this product on both his skin and hair as it means there is no fiddling about with different products, when I have washed Jayden's hair with this is feels lovely and soft. The soft floral fragrance of the wash leaves a long lasting subtle yet clean and fresh smell. Not only have I been pleased with the performance of this product I was also pleased with the price, whilst I didn't personally buy the bottle we currently have it is very reasonably priced for me to buy in the future. This is definitely a product I will continue to use in the future and also one I would recommend to anyone, it is gentle, does what it is supposed to and is also affordable.
Summary: A lovely affordable product
