I used to use Matey bubble bath to bath by children. I was quite nostalgic about it as that's what I was bathed in a child but the price literally doubled over night so I started to look for alternatives. A few that I have tried just were not as bubbly as Matey. I remember how much I loved piles of bubbles in my bath as a child so I wanted them same for my two boys, actually I still love extremely bubbly bubble baths.
I spotted Tesco's bubble bath for kids in raspberry whilst doing my online shop. It was an amazing price so added it to my shop. I bought a litre bottle but I can see online that it is now £1.30 for 500ml, I have a feeling I that I paid this for the litre so i believe that it's had a price increase.
The scent of the bubble bath doesn't remind me of raspberries in the slightest but it does have a clean fruity fragrance. Most importantly it produces plenty of bubbles. It comes in a deep raspberry coloured plastic bottle with a flip cap and is easy to squirt the bubble bath into the water stream.
A litre bottle has lasted us very well, I would say that it is as good quality as Matey and definitely better value so I would without a doubt buy this again.
I find that my kids love to have bubble baths. Usually we go through the different products quite quickly, so when I was at Tesco with the kids and they asked me if I would get some more, I agreed. I spotted the Tesco versions, and thought they were cheap enough and looked appealing for kids.
There are two versions - a raspberry one and a pineapple one. Both are £1.55 for 500ml. The bottles were very kiddie friendly and reminded me a little of l'oreal and avon products with a similarly shaped plastic bottle compared to these brands with a flip top hinged lid, in yellow or pink. My boys opted for the pineapple scent - I think the pink bottle put them off a bit.
Of course, with it being a new product, they were keen to test it out the very day we bought it, so that evening I ran them a bath with this product in. The product grabbed me immediately as the smell of pineapple was so vivid it was making me salivate while the water was running. I added a decent amount to the bath as my boys like lots of bubbles, and the bath was filled with foam which lasted the length of the bath, and this gorgeous scent was there the whole time I was bathing them and for quite a while after I pulled the plug out of the bath.
An important thing for me with bubble bath is that my youngest son has quite sensitive skin. Some products leave his skin really dry, and a couple of times this has led to him getting a skin infection from scratching at the dry itchy patches and the hair folicles getting infected. One time this resulted in him getting a nasty case of foliculitis and needing antibiotics so I am always watching for products affecting his skin.
This was not too bad. His skin was no worse than normal as long as I made sure I rinsed all the bubbles off before him getting out the bath.
I would say you needed a fair bit of this product to make a decent amount of foam, but the foam did last well and it is a fairly low priced product so it was good value for my money and I would buy it them again. I would just make sure I have always eaten before bathing them as the scent was just too realistic and made me feel a bit hungry while bathing them. It is a brand that is definitely worth buying in my opinion.
This review is for the Tesco raspberry kid's bubble bath.
Up until reasonably recently I used to use my own bubble baths in my sons bath as he loved lots of bubbles. It was getting to the point where it was costing me a fortune in bubble bath as he has a bath usually around 5 times a week! Whilst in Tesco one day I was browsing the bubble baths and came across the Raspberry Ripple bubble bath. I noticed that the price was just short of a pound and decided to give it a go.
The bottle is a bright pink colour and has a picture of what looks to be a duck diving into a lot of bubbles on the front. It has the Tesco logo and says it is Kids bubble bath and kinder to eyes as well as being dermatologically tested. It comes in a 500ml bottle and is suitable to keep for 24 months after opening though it wouldn't last that long in this house!
The smell is lovely and fruity which is what you would expect from a raspberry flavoured product. It reminds me of the body shop for some reason and that is nice. You need to run the bubble bath under warm running water to create the bubbles. You don't need to use lots of the product to create a decent amount of bubbles for your child's bath.
My son likes to squeeze the bubbles himself when we are running his bath. I think this makes him feel a bit more grown up but thankfully the bubbles don't come out too fast so we are not over run with bubbles that touch the ceiling when he puts it in!
It does state it is suitable for all skin types and my son has had no problems with this product. Very occasionally he can suffer from dry skin but this product has not caused that to flare up.
The product is covered by Tesco's quality guarantee so if you feel it falls below standard you can take it back to the store for a refund or replacement but I don't think this would be the case.
The bubble bath also comes in Pineapple Paddle and Fruit burst flavours but I am yet to try those.
In summary a good child friendly bubble bath which lasts well.
My son loves bath time and especially loves lots of bubbles so we go through a lot of foam bath. I previously used the baby range of bubble bath, but now my boy is 2 I felt it time to move on from the baby products.
The bright yellow packaging of the Tesco 'Pineapple Paddle' bubble bath first caught my eye. At £1.45 for 500ml it looked to be good value. I love anything pineapple scented and when I had a sniff of this I wasn't disappointed, it smells really fruity. The scent is strong enough that you can definitely tell what it is but without it smelling too strongly for a child's product.
That night my son had remembered he had the new bubble bath and so decided it was bath time straight after dinner! I set the bath running and poured a small amount of the liquid into the running water. It foamed up straight away and the packaging claim that it gives 'lots of bubbles at bath time' certainly proves true. You really don't need much of this bubble bath to get plenty of foam so it should last a long time.
Once my son was in the bath, the foam lasted the entire time he was in. Previous brands of bubbles have disappeared when I wash his hair (something to do with the shampoo touching them?) however these don't vanish and there are still plenty when I empty the bath.
The packaging also states that the bubble bath is kinder to eyes and suitable for all skin types. My son has rather sensitive skin and a lot of products have irritated him in the past, often causing rashes and itching. I was pleased to see that this product did not have any negative effect on his skin at all. We have been using it for around 2 months and no problems have developed.
As well as the 'Pineapple Puddle' fragrance, the bubble bath is also available in Raspberry. We hadn't tried this one until today. Today in Tesco I went to pick up the usual pineapple version when I saw the raspberry alternative was priced at only 95p, so 50p cheaper than the pineapple for exactly the same size bottle. I'm not really sure why it is cheaper, it wasn't a promotion either, it is the normal price. We tried the raspberry fragrance bubble bath tonight and it is just as nice as the pineapple version and smells just as tasty! I will probably stick with the raspberry one for a while since it is cheaper and has all the benefits of the pineapple version.
I came across the Tesco Kids Bubble Bath while doing my grocery shopping online at Tesco.com. Was looking for some bubble bath for my daughter too and used the 'express shopper' which brought back a couple of results, this being one of them...
Was not too keen on the 'Pineapple Paddle' version available so opted for the 'Raspberry Ripple' version of this Kids Bubble bath as I thought it was as close to strawberry scent as we could get and we love everything 'strawberry'!:)
(It also comes in the 'Fruit Burst' version which was not available at the time it seems)
The picture and details on the site also showed it was in a 500ml container so I thought that was a rather generous amount considering it was less than £1 at only £0.92!! Added it to my shopping basket..
On receiving the product along with the rest of the shopping, was happy with the buy; it comes in a dark pink bottle; very well packaged I must add for a Tesco product; if it weren't for the 'Tesco' logo on the top of the front you would not know otherwise...
It's a tall plastic opaque bottle with a transparent flip-top cover that is pink too. The rest of the package front has the words 'Kids Bubble bath' in a white very visible font and the words 'Kinder to eyes, Dermatologically tested' in a smaller font below that..
The 'Raspberry Ripple' words are in dark pink enclosed in a green caption box and below that is a rather simple though funny picture of a yellow duck diving into a bubble bath (with pink bubbles) head-first which is an added effect for the kids I suppose..
The product itself is a translucent liquid that is a very light almost colourless pink and is very easy to pour; a light gel-like consistency.
The scent is absolutely gorgeous, it has a fresh sweet fruity scent that is pleasant and lightens when you add the bubble bath to the water and lingers on the skin after the bath for sometime.
To use, 'Pour under warm running water to create bubble fun' as it states on the back of the bottle.
The bubble bath easily foams with water creating many bubbles as it has been specially formulated for the kids to enjoy the many bubbles created and they do.
The rest of the back of the package indicates the ingredients including Aqua, Parfum, Glycerin, Glycerides and others.. The product has not been animal tested and you should avoid contact of the undiluted product with the eyes and out of reach of children.
There's also the 24M shelf-life sign so you can use this for 24 months after opening.

Wash and play...
This is one bubble bath I buy quite frequently for little miss; not only does she like the smell, but I believe it offers great value and quality.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
The bubble bath is sold in Tesco stores costing £1.22 for a 500ml bottle, and is available in Fruit Burst, Raspberry Ripple and Pineapple. We have tried them all and they are all good.
The one we bought most recently is the Raspberry Ripple; this smells good enough to eat so take heed of the warning and keep away from children. Strangely enough, though, although there is a warning to rinse if it gets in the eyes, there does not appear to be a warning about swallowing it.
The product comes in a pink (what a surprise) bottle with a flip top lid. Fortunately, the flip top lid is actually quite difficult to lift up so I do believe only older children would be able to actually open the bottle. Open it up and, as I said, it smells delicious; this is a real raspberry smell, which hits you as soon as the lid is opened. After bathing,it does linger, but not enough to be over powering, just enough for little one to think they smell all clean.
The product looks pink as it is coming out of the bottle but is actually clear, and when poured under running water, produces masses of bubbles. There are so many that I was actually asked the other night to take some of the bubbles away; this from the little lady who usually wants more bubbles. So, the answer to that problem is for mum to be less enthusiastic with the bubble bath pouring.
None of the flavours(?) has irritated Amelia's eyes or skin and she has used these products since about the age of 3; either she has really tough skin or they are gentle on the skin.
They do promise to be dermatologically tested and kinder to the eyes, which is appropriate if they are being marketed for young children to use. The bubble bath is also suitable for all skin types and does not state an age under which it must not be used. There is also a promise that should the product be not of the high standard you would expect, then Tesco would be happy to refund your money (I do believe you can't say fairer than that)
Whenever I do some online Tesco shopping, I always tend to add a couple of these to my list. The brand is a brand that I do trust, and I have been using it for a couple of years, so for me, it is tried and tested. It is also made specially for children and so should contain fewer harsh ingredients, and so far, no adverse effects have occurred.
From little lady's point of view, it's a product which has all the right ingredients for her- it smells good and produces lots of bubbles.
The product is good value for money, when I consider the fortunes I sometimes spend on these character bubble baths which are often quite disappointing in the bubble and smell test.
Given that I am now not allowed to pour as much in the bath for fear of the invasion of the bubbles, then it should last a lot longer. At the moment, on my type of useage, a 500ml bottle would last for a bath a night for just over 2 weeks; should last me a month now.
Good value bubble bath; I will be buying it again, as well as the other flavours, for some mix and match
