“ Brand: Cuticura „
Baby wipes are something which we must have in our home, they are a essential for daily life so I am always buying them, I do my best to stock up on baby wipes so that I won't run out because life would be really difficult if I did't have a packet of baby wipes handy.
When looking around online for some wipes I came across this brand, the Cuticura hand wipes and seen as though they were only £2.55p I thought they were worth giving a try, but if you consider that I usually only spend a pound or so on 100 baby wipes I would say that they were not great value for money but I just liked the look of them and thought I would give them a try.
These wipes say on the packet that they are hand wipes so this is what I used them for, if I would of used them for changing nappies they would probably have been gone the first day I opened them. They do, do a great job at cleaning my children's hands, my son makes a lot of mess whilst eating, he just can not get used to eating with a knife and fork or spoon and chooses to use his hands instead, because of this he does get his hands very messy when eating and these wipes did a great job at cleaning up his grubby little hands.
These wipes are nice and thick, they are a little smaller than your average baby wipes and come folded, unfolding them is a easy enough task and as they are so strong they are easy to use, the best thing about them I thought was the apple scent which is left behind on my sons hands after I have washed him with them.
These wipes contain Hazel a natural anti-bacterial so they can be used as a alternative to washing hands if you are out and about and on the move, and I must say they do. do a great job at cleaning up the kids. If you are going to start using these hand wipes then I suggest stocking up on them as the packet of ten wipes do not last very long, they are of good quality but in my opinion you just don't get enough of them compared to other baby and hand wipes you can buy.
I have used these a couple of times but because you only get ten to a pack they are not something I use often and would not really recommend that people buy them, like I said they are good in quality but you just don't get enough of them.
Baby wipes are a must in our house as my two year old is a mess machine and dust diva. When we're out and about though I prefer not to carry a big pack of wipes in my bag so I usually settle for the Cuticura hand wipes as I quite like the antibacterial hand gel the brand does too.
The pack contains 10 individually wrapped wipes which is a bit wasteful but if they weren't separately wrapped they would dry out quickly once the pack had been opened. The pack is resealable once you have torn the top open although I usually use scizzors as I'm not particularly good at opening plastic packets and bottles etc.
The pack costs 99p which you think isn't much until you consider that a normal pack of say 100 baby wipes costs only a pound. But, baby wipes are not antibacterial like these wipes are and although I'm no anti-germ freak I am wary when we are out and about on the buses, trains, cafes etc as my toddler sometimes likes to lick the things around her before she can be stopped. So I have gotten into the habit of wiping nearby surfaces with a wipe, not always but when they look dirty or when I am sure she is going to lick one. For the same reason these wipes are great for her hands, which is what the packet says they are designed for, which get quickly grubby indoors so you can't imagine the germs on them when we are outdoors and she wants to eat something with her hands - I always wipe them down first with a Cuticura hand wipe.
The wipes are smaller than normal baby wipes and you have to unfold them which is easy to do as they are quite wet, though not sopping wet like some wipes are! They are a decent thickness and they have an apple smell which smells a bit perfumey and artificial to me BUT it is much better than the smell of antibacterial gel which is clinical and horrible, and thankfully it masks that.
The wipes also contain witch hazel which is meant to be kind to the skin and a natural antibacterial. My daughter's hands don't dry out with these wipes even though I use them a few times a day whenever we are out, and I have used them at home a few times when she has put her hands in the guinea pig cage for example or on the potty. This is a great alternative to soap and water as it's fast, and you need to be fast with a 2 year old else those grubby fingers are in the mouth before you can mutter 'ah c***!'
I recommend these for when you're on the go, but you do have to keep stocked up on them as you can get through a pack quickly. I much prefer them to the gel though as I wouldn't trust my daughter not to try to eat gel off her fingers, whereas these wipes dry fairly quickly and so far - fingers crossed - the apple smell has not enticed her to eat the wipes either..
Having a 3 year old when out and about (and even at home!) is always a messy/sticky situation! Playing in the park or even just a trip.to the shops she can get her hands in a right mess so when I saw these wipes in the 99p store they seemed a really good purchase!
My wipes actually come in a little white plastic packet similarly to those like face wipes. The pack is easy to open and use as it has a little oval slip on top which can be opened, take a wipe out and re-sealed to prevent them from drying out. A pack contains 10 wipes which isn't too bad for 99p but when worked out at almost 10p a wipe it is slightly pricey as I could probably get a pack of baby wipes to do the same job at better value!
The packaging states "These Cuticura Hand Hygiene Wipes with their anti-bacterial ingredient, together with refreshing Witch Hazel, help remove germs on contact and are a hygienic alternative to washing hands when soap and water are not available." The wipes are therefore ideal to use for cleaning my daughters hand and leaving them fresh and clean. Using them, they do wipe off dirt and grime very well but of course I can't see bacteria to know if these do in fact remove 99.9% of all germs!
Each wipe is quite small, once unfolded about the size of a tissue that you would usuay get in a handy pack of tissues. The most appealing thing is that they have a nice apple scent which my daughter is obsessed with as we also have an apple air freshener in our bathroom at home of the same sweet smell. The wipes are quite thick, compared to what I expected as they are really robust and don't tear easily. Using one at a time is more than enough so the pack can last a while. Most recently she was eating a donut in the back of the car and got her hands quite messy and we were able to use only one wipe to get all the mess off in no time and her hands were good as new! They are quite moist so do leave hands slightly wet but not sticky or oily and this dries pretty quickly leaving hands fresh and rejuvenated. Although I have mainly used these on my daughter, after wiping her hands off I have occasionally used it to rub mine briefly, sometimes before a meal in a restaurant. I have always found these really good and suprisingly I don't need to moisturise my hands after which usually I do! Hoorah!
Overall, these are good wipes which I would recommend as they work well. I do think they are slightly overpriced on the grand scale of things so I have to knock off 1 star!
I use moist hand wipes a lot and I don't ever usually use any that are designed specifically for kids. The only reason I bug these was because I couldn't find my normal Tesco wipes in the large tubs and I saw that they had these on offer at the time for 79p for ten individually wrapped wipes. They normally retail at just over £1 apparently, so I snapped up two packs and never thought much more about it until I came to use one for the first time after I had collected my daughter from drama class a few weeks ago.
I tend to keep most hand wipes in the glove compartment of my car. When you have kids (and messy husbands) having moist hand wipes is a necessity, I think. The first time we needed to use one of these was when I was driving the car back home and Sarah said that her hands felt sticky from the ice cream she'd eaten earlier that day.
I told her that we had wipes in the glove compartment and she went to help herself to one. I must admit she seemed to find it a real struggle to get into the pack and pull out the individual wipes. It took her ages to do and she became quiet frustrated but I wasn't able to help her as I was driving at the time.
Once she'd finally managed to break through the outer wrapping, I could smell a really weird aroma of fresh fruity apples. We suddenly realised at the same time that these are not your average sort of wipe. I'm used to having hand wipes which smell sort of lightly perfumed and I never expected that these would smell of fruit. My daughter loved it and it's actually encourage her to use them more often. Personally speaking, however, I'm not that keen on the smell as I don't particularly want to have my hands smelling of fruit.
The wipes are nice and large, very tough and strong and really moist. They are certainly large enough for my daughter to have to only use one, even if her hands are extra grimy and dirty. The wetness soon dries off on the skin and to be honest, even though the initial smell of the apples is pretty horrid, it doesn't last that long and soon wears off.
Overall, these are pretty good wipes and are also a brand I know well and trust. I think 79p was a bit of a bargain but sadly they are back up to full price again now. I have since gone back to using my old and trusted Tesco moist wipes but if these were ever on offer again then I'd certainly consider buying more.
When you are out and about with kids its inevitable that they get very dirty and mucky but what happens when you can't always wash their hands? We are often out walking with the dog and then have a picnic lunch afterwards and usually the kids have dog slobber on their hands from throwing his ball and mud and dirt etc, etc. Well, these hands wipes are perfect for cleaning their hands and not only that but killing the bacteria on their hands too so they are then ready to eat and drink safely.
These hands wipes are designed specifically for kids and it says on the packet that they, "cleans small hands when soap and water are not available." My favourite part about the wipes is that they kill 99.99% of bacteria on the hands so I feel safe using them when we are out and about. Its cool actually because on the packaging it says that this wipes are prefect when kids are, "playing with pets, playing indoors, playing sports, for picnics and at the farm, " and these are all the things we do on a regular basis so I always make sure I have some of these in my bag.
When you buy a pack of these wipes you get 10 individually wrapped sachets which each contain one wipe. The wipes then come in a little foil wrapped sachet which actually to me looks like a condom wrapper, he he, anyway....! The wrap is easy to open as it has a little indentation on each side so you can rip it apart easily. Then you just pull the little towel out, unwrap it and its like a little moist towelette that you get on airplanes. The wipe is a bit wet but once you apply it to your hands it dries fairly quickly on your hands.
The best part of these actually is the smell, they are juicy apple flavour and smell really fruity and juicy and the smell actually makes my kids really want to use them and apply them to their hands so I think this is a good thing.
The pack of 10 cost me just £1 which I think is a very good price and these are hygienic wipes we will continue to use in the future.
