      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Cleans well and cheap to buy.

      I had seen this baby bath for quite some time and had never bought it. The reason being that I had my bath removed a few years ago when I moved into my present home and then I had another one installed in my bathroom after my little grandson was born so that I could bathe him and also because my hubby wanted a bath installed again because he did miss not having one and missed soaking in a bath at the end of a hard days work. I have a shower cubicle too and since my bathroom is quite large, I am lucky enough to have space for both a shower and a bath. I usually buy a more expensive brand for bathing my little grandchildren. Since it was so cheap I decided to give it a go to see if it was suitable for my little treasures.

      It comes in a white plastic bottle with a flip lid. The bottle does stand well on a surface because the base is really sturdy. It just has a basic label on the front with a picture of a little baby and the name clearly on the front, so can be spotted on the shelf.

      The bottle is easy to squeeze the liquid from the bottle into the bath water. It is a really nice pale blue colour liquid. It has a slight perfume smell to it but not one that is as strong as a branded one but it is an adequate enough fragrance since it is so cheap.

      When I first used it, I just squeezed a small amount into the water to see how it lathered. The small amount did give for a good lather and it created lots of bubbles in the water. I bathed my little granddaughter in the bath and only bathed her for around 5 minutes or so and the bubbles remained in the water for this length of time. The next time I used it, I bathed my little grandson, he likes to stay in the bath for a lot longer because he is older. I used the same amount of liquid as I had for bathing my granddaughter but I found that the bubbles didn't last so long for the length of time he stayed in the bath, so I just added a little bit more liquid to the water and the bubbles remained for longer. My grandson bathed for around half a hour or so and the extra liquid to create the bubbles was enough time to help make them last longer. I found they didn't fizzle and just remained in the water so that he could enjoy splashing around in the usual way.

      It cleans the body well, it removes dirt really well too and just dissolves the dirt in the usual way without having to keep rubbing the skin to clean it. It is a mild liquid and I have found it hasn't irritated my grandchildren's skin at all. It hasn't left their more delicate skins feeling rough or in a bad condition. Hasn't left any dry patches and has just left it feeling nice and soft and once a body lotion applied to their skin, it has felt the same softness and feeling as it always has felt. If it had I wouldn't have continued to bath them with the product after the first time.

      It is a little runny consistency compared to other brands but it doesn't drip from the bottle when it is squeezed into the water. It is a soft textured liquid and is gentle on the skin. I have been using this one for the past 6 weeks or so along side a branded one and I am almost at the end of the bottle. I liked it so much I decided to buy some for my little godson, his mum struggles to buy baby products at the moment because she is on maternity leave and so for the price of just 46p for a 500ml bottle, I just think this is an amazing price if you are struggling to make ends meet in this economical climate. It is so affordable and also a good quality and excellent value for money and worth it. It has increased in price so must be a good seller.

      Apart from having to just add a little extra to the water for a long bath time, I cannot fault this item, when my grandchildren want or need a longer bath time, I just add the extra at the beginning and then I don't have to add any more during their bath time.

      I do highly recommend it for others to give it a go if you are struggling and need to buy a cheaper brand. This one is a good choice in my opinion and I will buy it again in the future because it gives me all the results that I expect from a shops own brand of baby bath. You just can't go wrong for just 46p and if you find it isn't suitable it can be used for cleaning around the home in my opinion.

      The bottle can also be recycled.

      I give it 5 stars.

      Also on Ciao under my username Pinky50.

      Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Great stuff if you are looking to save a bit of money.

        A while ago I started trying to save a bit of money on shower gels and bath foams by using shop's own products. Although I don't have a baby I also started trying the ultra cheap baby bath product at Morrison's. I then saw they had the equivalent product for sale in my local Tesco. It was the same price as the Morrison's product so I bought it to try it out.

        As I mentioned, I use the Tesco Everyday Value Baby Bath product on myself rather than for a child. It started as an attempt to save money and once I started doing it I realised I could tolerate substituting one or two of my more expensive bath products with the cheaper ones. I did not realise Tesco had their own baby bath product range and was pleased to see they had a bottle of Baby Bath on sale for only 20p. This cheap price plus having the chance to earn points on the Tesco Clubcard loyalty scheme is a great incentive.

        The product actually looks almost identical to the Morrison's own Baby Bath. It's in the same shaped 500ml sized bottle with very basic labelling. The bottle is white plastic and fully recyclable. The plastic is slightly soft so it's easy to squeeze it to eject the liquid. It is fitted with a flip style cap on the top. This has a large lip which makes it easy to flick open with a fingertip. It also fits securely once shut. The top can also be screwed off completely.

        The labels on the bottle are pretty basic in appearance. The label on the bottle is adorned with cute cartoons of rubber ducks, prams and assorted baby toys and accessories. It is also printed with directions for use, basic warnings, full ingredients, contact information and some information about the Tesco brand and guarantee. The brand state this is "formulated by baby care experts" and that it carries the approval of customers who are already familiar with the product.

        To use this with babies (as is the product's intended use) the directions for use state to add this to running water. I have found that using this product as an adult you can either add it to water and use like a bubble bath or just apply it to a sponge and use it like a shower gel. Either way it's quite effective.

        The liquid is a pale, translucent blue colour and is runny with a flowing, treacle like consistency. I have previously used the Everyday Value shower gel (for grown ups!) and this is much more fluid than that. It's a shampoo-like consistency which means it is easy to use just the right amount. It also feels a bit more special when you are rubbing it onto skin.

        The Baby Bath lathers up well and also quite quickly although it is best applied to a shower poof for best results. The foam that ensues is not the most rich or luxurious foam I've ever experienced but it's of an acceptable quality. It cleans well although you may need a bit of extra soap for things like day old underarms! If you are just after a quick shower then this is a perfect product for that. You can just lather yourself up, rinse and go!

        The Baby Bath does not smell either feminine or masculine but seems to have a rather basic soapy scent that smells fresh and clean. Again, it can't provide a luxurious or rich fragrance but for the price the scent is acceptable.

        The Baby Bath ultimately leaves me feeling clean, refreshed and also leaves my skin feeling quite good and smelling fresh. It doesn't have any obvious moisturising qualities though.

        Ultimately I'm happy with my purchase and will continue to use this. It's perfect for mums and kids, students, penny pinchers like me and folks on the breadline. The product can be purchased in supermarkets and online.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Fantastic value for money baby product

        I bought the Tesco Everyday Value Baby Bath on a bit of a whim. In a bid to save money I thought this might be worth a try. To my surprise it is brillant. I have a four month old boy and at first was worried that as it was cheap it might irritate his skin.

        On its first trial at bath time we used it. I poured into the bath and added some warm water, to my surprise bubbles were created, which was the first positive. The second positive came when we put my son in the water, his skin was not irritated.

        The baby bath does what it says on the label, it has no fragrances or chemicals in it. Unlike other products that I have used which have had an unpleasant smell to them, this one does not smell of anything. And you can't beat the price at 46p in Tesco, you could buy 3 or 4 bottles for the price of one bottle of Johnson's.

        For anyone on a budget or looking to save money, please give one a go, you will be pleasantly surprised!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A mild baby bath product

          After trying the supermarket own brand baby lotions, I spotted this baby bath and bought a bottle to try. Once our baby was past six months old I was happy to start using products on her skin. At bath time we always have bubbles in the bath as she loves playing with them (and eating them!).

          Packaging
          The product is a pale blue colour and it is housed in a white plastic basic bottle with a flip top lid. Since i bought my bottle, the packaging has changed to Tesco's 'Everyday Value' branding but the bottle I have is as pictured above. It will be interesting to see how the new product compares but I think it will be pretty similar.

          In use
          I use a generous squeeze of this in each bath and find a full 500ml bottle lasts around six weeks of regular use. The bubbles are white and the bath water stays clear and I think it smells mild but nice. I find it really gentle and kind to baby's skin and am happy to use it myself in my baths if I don't have anything else on the go.

          Price
          Here's the best bit! The 500ml bottle costs a whopping 11p and is a real value product. This is one of their loss leader products and is one I have bought again and again over the past year.

          My thoughts
          I love this bubble bath and find it extremely gentle and mild in the bath. I wouldn't use it directly on skin to clean, we have a top to to product for that which we use separately. We use baby shampoo on her hair too and have never had any skin problems using any of these three products.

          Final word
          The product is not a premium packaged brand but I do feel that it performs well and it is a great purse saver during the weekly shop. Some items I won't compromise on brand wise but bubble bath is one I don't like to spend a lot of money on. Ok so the packaging is basic but the new branding which moves away from the blue and white stripes should please the people who think these stripes scream cheap! I have bought many bottles of this bubble bath and will continue to do so. I would say just go steady and buy one to try first in case it doesn't agree with your little one's skin but I would say that in using any new product.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A nice product for the money

            A while ago I had a voucher for a Dettol No Touch Hand System, there's no way I'm paying their prices for refills so I just buy a cheaper hand wash and refill the container that came with the No Touch unit. While shopping for baby bits in my local Tesco I noticed their Value Baby Bath. It was selling for just 11p for a 500ml bottle. Now I am a big fan of the Tesco Value Range or Everyday Value as its been renamed but to be honest I didn't fancy bathing Jayden in this baby bath but I thought at that price I would give it a try for my hand wash system.

            The baby bath is sold in a basic white plastic bottle with a simple flip top lid. The label has the Tesco Value logo and a picture of a cute baby. The front of the bottle also informs the customer that the baby bath will gently cleanse baby's skin.

            The back of the bottle gives the ingredients and directions for use, these are to pour the baby bath under running water. If, unlike me, you are using the product for your baby the label also advises to avoid getting it near your baby's eyes. I'm assuming then that this wouldn't be suitable for a baby's hair.

            The baby bath is like a runny gel and is a very pale clear blue colour, it smells gorgeous though, sweet and quite floral for a baby but I love it.

            As I mentioned I bought this to use as liquid soap and for this purpose it does very well. I do find that with it being a baby product its gentle and therefore to get a decent lather on my hands I do need to use a couple of squirts but at the low price it doesn't really matter. It cleans and leaves my hands feeling soft and smelling lovely.

            Out of curiosity I have actually tried this in the bath and once again its not too bad as a bath gel but you would need to use a lot to get a decent lather.

            All in all I was pleased with the Value Baby Bath, for the low price it was really good. It made a nice hand wash and as expected it was gentle, the only downside in our house was the smell of it, Mark my husband thought it was a bit too girly for him and to be honest it is quite flowery but on the whole it's a nice product for the money but I'm not sure I would use it on my baby.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Super value and good to use. At the price your be foolish NOT to buy it!!

            ---Why I Bought It---

            Well I've not had a baby in the house for many years but was made aware of this value baby bath when it was on sale for only 5p!!!! The price has gone up to 11p now though.
            Thought I'd give it a go as it was much cheaper than the Tesco Value Bath Foam - and we all find it does just as good a job.


            ---The Product---

            This Baby Bath comes in a standard white plastic bottle with a white srew top which also has a flip-up cap.
            The bottle states 'to gently cleanse baby's skin'.
            The Baby Bath is an opaque pale blue colour, quite thick, and it has a refreshing smell - not like expensive perfume, but clean and fresh adn sort of soapy - not at all babyish.
            The bottle contains 500 mls and is produced in the UK. It ios advised to use up within twelve months of opening.
            The directions are just to pour into running water.
            Warnings - also the standard 'keep out of reach fo babies and children' and also 'avoid contact with eyes'.


            ---Cost---

            11p.
            This is no longer available online at Tesco but in store the last time I stocked up it was 11p.


            ---Comparisons---

            Tesco's ordinary Baby Bath sells for 98p for 500 mls, whilst Johnsons standard Baby Bath is £2.58 for 500 mls (but currently buy 1 get 1 free).


            ---My Opinion---

            We all use it now - myself, husband and even son of 21 and his girlfriend.
            It has a decent smell and lathers up nicely - which is all you need really.
            I have also got the same 500ml size of Bodyshop bubble bath but don't see that it is so much better at £4 a bottle!!
            The liquid is a light colour blue so you could decant it into another container if you are snobbish about not having value bottles on show.
            Also at that price it is cheaper than any other cleaning products so could be used for any sort of general cleaning - bath/sinks/floors/windows etc - unless you prefer an anti-bacterial one.
            Could also be used for hand washing or for children's cuddly toys.
            At the price your be foolish NOT to buy it!!


            ---Star Rating---

            5 stars - cannot fault it.


            ---Would I Recommend?---

            Yes definitely - a great way to save some money.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Really is worth using no matter what budget you have

            My cheapskate shopping ways yet again hit last month when I picked up a 500ml botle of this Tesco value Baby bath, priced at 11p. Now, I couldn't and still cannot quite get my head around this price! At the time of plucking it from the shelf, I figured that it must contain the sweepings of the bubblebath world. Then I thought again, and realised that this was being marketed as baby bath so no way could it contain anything that bad!

            The label is an improvement on the usual value labelling, as although there is still the obligatory stripey red and blue value motif we all like to poke fun at, they've bothered to stick a cute baby picture on the front too. The back has quite a hefty list of ingredients, in fact, exactly what you would expect from a bubble bath when I compare it to other baby bubble bath bottles. I can't tell you how kind it is to eyes as my youngster hasn't had it in her eyes, but there is the usual expected warning about contact with eyes on the label. (They also offer the money back promise but at 11p I have to chuckle!).

            The bottle is white plastic and has a snap down lid.

            Adding it to running water, it is slightly runnier than some bubble baths and blue in colour; it turns the water a very pale blue but immediately creates lots of bubbles. I fill my little ones tub quite full so it's up to her chest level and I find the usual glug to be more than enough, I don't need to add extra because it's cheap. Good so far then!

            The scent is possibly the only let-down, but scent is a very subjective thing. I personally don't think it's my favourite baby bath when it comes to fragrance, but it's still a nice scent. I cannot compare it to any other product although it does have a 'baby' sort of scent. It is a calming and soothing scent, which I feel is the important issue in any baby bath product. I won't lower my score because of the subjective nature of the fragrance. I also feel that the fragrance strength is about right.

            I've been using this product for a good month, not just with my 12 month old, but for myself too (!) and it's very gentle on the skin. I suffer dry skin and it hasn't in any way affected my skin, dried it out, or caused irritation. Likewise my daughter who is sensitive to occasional baby products, gets on well with the product. It gently cleanses our skin and does not leave any residue.

            The bath is not left with any marks or residues after use.

            The big question is, would I switch from my more expensive brand (Asda's Little Angels and Johnsons Baby Bath)? Well, yes I already have! I find this to be favourably comparable to any pricier supermarket or leading brand. So if I can save over £1 on something I feel is a part of my toddlers daily regime, I will!


            You really should try this for your little one.

            Nice cheap baby bath liquid.

            I have a lot of grandchildren and they take it in turns to have a stay over at our home, the little ones need to be bathed. My neighbours have a baby the same age as my youngest grandchild and recommended that I try this baby product to try as it was nice for their grandchild's skin and they thought it was worth the money.

            It comes in a plastic bottle, it has a flip lid, very basic and nothing special to look at, but the contents inside is a nice liquid which has a nice soft texture, it is easy to use. All that is needed is to pour it under running water and the liquid lathers the water to just the right amount of bubbles for babies and young children. A child's skin is very delicate as we all know. This product is very mild for my grandchildren's skin, it suits them and they have never had any problems with any irritations after use, it has left their skin feeling nice and soft.

            The liquid has a nice mild fragrance to it, but it is not too strong, but it does leave a lovely smell on their skin after bathing, I think for the amount in the bottle, which is 500ml for only 11p, I could not believe it when I first bought this product for the low price, I thought it would not be a nice one at all. I thought my neighbours took a chance with the cheaper one, but I certainly think this one is very good value for money, it is a good quality too. It is so gentle on the skin, and although the bubbles do tend to fizzle out a little if the children are in the bath for quite some time, but that can happen with cheaper brands and it was not a problem for my liking as it did the task it was aimed to do and so I was quite happy with the results.

            I found when I gave the children a bath, this product really cleaned their dirty bodies as the first time they had a bath they had been playing in the park and were quite dirty. It cleaned the dirt nicely off their bodies, it left their skin feeling nice and soft too. I was surprised how nice this actually was for the price. I would not say it is super brilliant but it certainly does the task to clean bodies. I only now usually buy baby products when they are often on special offer as it makes sense because they are products I do not use every day and only use them at the weekends and during the school holidays most of the time.

            I think the quality is super too, it is a nice consistency for 11p, it may sound cheap but it really is worth the money and I recommend it for others to give it a try as I do not think it is a bad product at all, it is very little money if you are on a budget or just wanting to buy a baby bath product for a family member who is visiting for the weekend etc.

            I rate it 5 stars.

              -

              Having bought more expensive baby bath liquids I decided to try this one at around 35-40p for 500ml i thought I couldnt go wrong.... and I have to say that I have never looked back!

              **PACKAGING**
              The 500ml bottle is white plastic with flip top lid and it is widely recycled throughout the UK. The label is white with the standard Tesco Value logo and information regarding the product which includes directions, warnings, ingredients, product information, product promise and contact information.

              **DIRECTIONS FOR USE**
              Pour under running water is all that it says! However in my experience for a half full bath for a child or children you will need about 50ml (so a bottle is enough for ten baths). This is probably slightly more than the more expensive baby bath products.

              **BUBBLE BATHS!**
              Personally I dont like my bubble bath to bubble too much only because it seems the products that do tend to dry skin out quicker (only my experience of course). So I was quite pleased that this does seem to be a particularly gentle product with a few, but not to many bubbles!

              Also the fragrance is not too strong, also indicating it probably has more gentle properties.

              Even when my children are a little grimy from playing this baby bath does a really good job of removing the dirt.

              What was particularly interesting was that I compared the ingredients of this product to the normal tesco baby bath and the contents of the ingredients appeared to be IDENTICAL! The only difference being the normal product was over four times the price and in a posh bottle!

              It also recommends that you use this product within 12 months of opening!

              **VERDICT**
              Brilliant, gentle, cheap product which I have been buying for many years!

                Fab budget product!

                I was lucky enough to get a brand new little nephew back in November and I have to say that I have been somewhat overwhelmed by the impact the little guy has had on me! One of the things I'm sure most of us girls do love about a new baby though is that yummy 'new baby' smell that we can often catch a whiff of when cuddling up to a tiddly little youngster.

                I will confess that I had the yummy aroma of my nephew in my head when I was browsing the supermarket shelf looking for a bubble bath to use in my own bathwater. There was another reason I was looking in the children's range though and that is that my troublesome eczema was playing up a bit and at these times I always try and find an alternative to use in my bathwater that might prove to be a bit milder on the skin that some of the harsher, chemical-ridden choices lurking in my bathroom cabinet.

                Having tried out two different 'own branded' baby bath/baby wash products over the past month or so and being distinctly unimpressed, I felt I had little left to lose by buying a 'budget buy' type product to try out. It was with no hesitation then that I selected a bottle of the 'Tesco Value Baby Bath' from the supermarket shelf and plonked it into my basket on a recent shopping trip.

                I did think that the bottle was extremely uninspiring, given the plain looking packaging and label, although this did not worry me too much initially, and it worried me even less when I noticed that this 500ml bottle of baby bath was going to cost me under 40 pence.

                The label on the front of the bottle is slightly different from the one shown at the top of the Dooyoo page, although I believe that a lot of the Tesco Value products have recently been given a slight 'revamp' in terms of their appearance. A slightly pearly-looking plastic bottle with a white-coloured plastic 'flip up' top and a picture of a cute looking little baby on the front of the label is pretty much all there is to this product.

                The first time I used the baby bath I followed the basic instructions on the reverse of the bottle which informed me to simply 'Pour Under Running Water.' I was surprised to notice that the baby bath was actually a blue-coloured liquid as I had just assumed it would be clear, although this is probably an assumption I made because of the cheapness of the product!

                The liquid was easy to pour from the nozzle in the top of the bottle, and I noticed too that the liquid was a good consistency - it didn't run all over the place because it was too thin, but neither was there any difficulty in squeezing it from the bottle because of the thickness of the liquid, so I felt it hit a happy medium in this respect.

                The first thing that struck me when I added the Tesco baby bath to my bath (under a running tap, as instructed) was the almost immediate addition of fluffy looking bubbles that appeared in the bath. This surprised me a great deal as I have used many cheaper-ended bath and shower products in the past and whilst I usually find they are so-so, I have never found one that has impressed me in terms of lather or bubbles.... Until now, that is...

                The second thing that surprised (and pleased) me was the faint aroma that I could detect fairly easily from the bathwater. A nice refreshing smell hit my nostrils almost as soon as I had begun adding the liquid to my bath. By no means was the smell strong at all, but for forty pence I hadn't really expected to be impressed with the smell in the slightest, and I'm happy to report that I could not only smell the aroma and thus it was a lot stronger than I had initially expected, but also that the smell itself was very pleasant indeed!

                I wouldn't say that the smell of the Tesco Value baby bath is EXACTLY like that well-known leading brand, but neither is it a million miles away and it definitely smells like a baby smell! I found it to be fresh and clean, and dare I say it, comforting...

                When washing with the baby bath, I found that the liquid and accompanying bubbles lathered quite nicely on my skin, rinsing well and leaving my skin softened and cleansed. I found there were no ill-effects AT ALL from using the product, and it caused no irritation whatsoever to my eczema and neither did it seem to cause any further drying. If anything, I was quite impressed by how soft and moisturised my skin appeared to be after using the product.

                I wouldn't say it's the best product I have ever used in my bath, but it is certainly a lot better than other products I have used recently - and I include top-end ranges of products as well as budget products in that statement - as I have had less irritation from the value baby bath and found it to be a pleasant bath product to use on the whole.

                I will buy the Tesco value baby bath again as for me, it offered a cheap and cheerful alternative for an everyday bath product. I also liked the fragrance and thought it was a fairly mild product to use on my irritated skin. This is all good enough reason for me to make future purchases of the baby bath, but the fact that such a good sized bottle is only 38 pence or so is the icing on the cake for me as I absolutely love a bargain!

                Top marks from me and I wouldn't hesitate to use it in my nephew's bathwater as well as in my own. Jolly well done Tesco!

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  Ok if your skint!

                  Last week I had my friends little boy stay overnight for the first time. She gave me a full rundown on his routine of course that was terrifying! Daunting task for sure as a single woman but I stuck to what was written down and the adorable little chappie was fine I'm happy to report though my house got trashed! lol

                  The one thing I wasn't looking forward to was bath-time. I was actually gonna miss it out to be perfectly honest cos I was nervous about it but by 6pm he was covered in spaghetti juice and egg yolk and smell like a gone off egg. Lets not talk about the state of his clothes from crawling all over the floor chasing my dog either ! Thankfully his washing wasn't my problem!

                  My friend being a mummy of course dropped off the biggest bag I've ever seen along with him and in it was everything I needed. In that bag was this baby bath. I of course used this on him and there wasn't a lot left so I kept it and have been using it on me as well of of late I have irritated skin from using to many fragranced products on myself!

                  The Packaging....

                  500ml white plastic bottle with matching white plastic lid to the top of it concealing a small dispensing hole. On the white label on the front in red and white writing I'm told it is Tesco 'Value' baby Bath 'To gently cleanse baby's skin'.

                  On the back of the bottle there is another white label on there and in dark blue writing all over it I'm told directions for use, warnings are given, ingredients are listed, contact details for Tesco are given along with a price promise and money back offer (if your not entirely satisfied with the product for any reason), size is stated (as I've listed already) and finally there is a bar-code on there. This is really very simple, fuss free and no frills packaging indeed. Nothing really special about it at all but it clearly is informative and states what is it and contains all the important information you need to make an informed choice of whether you want this or not.

                  Directions For Use....

                  Pour under running water.

                  Using It....

                  Well I was nervous and the first thing that baffled me was how much do I need to use and how much water! In the end I squirted quite a lot of the light blue, thin liquid into the bath and added lots of water. Smell wise, well it has a really rather delicate 'baby' fragrance to it. Very light and the more you add to the water (as I did when I decided to give it a go) you don't get any more smell just more bubbles from it. The smell although light is rather cheap smelling and weak. If you smell it in the bottle it smells like a harsh product but of course adding some to the water it loses that anyway. However the smell is only app rant for a few minutes and vanishes pretty quickly anyway.

                  The water goes very slightly blue (depending on the amount you use of course), isn't all that fragranced and although you get a rather generous amount of white bubbles they are bubbly rather than rich although the more the little guy splashed about in the water the more bubbles appeared much to his delight.

                  Swishing my hands in the water and trying to sort him out the water didn't feel overly soft but it wasn't greasy either. He seemed rather happy although I wasn't overly impressed with it that it didn't feel moisturising and the smell wasn't really there.

                  It rinsed out of the bath easily when I drained it leaving no dirty messy residue in my bath at all (meaning no one was going to break there neck in there next time when going to have a shower lol) and I patted him dry. No tears. No really smell. He was clean and smelt fresh but as I anticipated he wasn't wonderfully fragranced.

                  It didn't seem to annoy him and didn't appear to agitate his skin. His skin never felt greasy or dry just normal really. It did the job and got rid of the food that was caked on prior to his pampering session!

                  As I say I kept the remnants of the bottle for myself to try out. Again I poured a generous amount under my running taps, my water went quite blue as I was heavy handed and again I had a fair amount of bubbles. Again smell wise I wasn't thrilled although I used quite a bit more in my bath than I had on my friends son as I wasn't so scared to but still the fragrance couldn't be described as strong!

                  For an adult really it does nothing for the skin and it's simply a straightforward bath foam. I find it none irritating but it doesn't help my skin in any way shape or form although of course it does it no harm to it either. It's not a joy to bath in but it isn't a nightmare either to be fair, it's simply what it is.. an economy but mild baby bath product.

                  Would I buy it for my baby? No! Surely a simple pleasure in life is to snuggle up to a gorgeous baby and inhaling them but not really with this product. It's a day to day none pleasure seeking product but it does a decent job and if your broke? Well it's better than nothing at all!

                  Only available in Tesco and priced 34p a bottle.
