“ Brand: Asda / Type: Wipes „
===Frankly, my dear===
I was in my friend's house the other day while incredibly hungover and at one point I had to run to the toilet. Usually in these circumstances I'd be met with a terrible option of ridiculously thin toilet paper. I thought I'd be quite comfortable given that she's a bit of a snob when it comes to toiletries and so has only the thickest softest toilet paper around. Alas my bum was not destined to be happy that day and even that stuff made my poor bum scream out in pain with each wipe. Clearly I have spoiled my bum. How did this happen? I would tell you, but it's all too gross for adults to handle so mostly you'll need to just imagine what I use them for.
When I was 19 I dated a gentleman for about a year. He was a total and utter clean freak. After a while I realised that any time we met he disappeared to use some baby wipes and always came back smelling lovely. From that point on, I got into the habit of using wipes for any "house keeping" so I always had some around.
===Back to the future...ish===
Having gotten used to baby wipes for getting manly things out of my manly chest hair, it wasn't much of a leap when I started growing a hairy bum of my very own to start using wipes when attending the little boy's room. Let's just say I'd noticed it was becoming increasingly difficult and uncomfortable to clean a hairy bum after toilet related activities with just dry toilet paper. Not only did it take twice as long, it ended up chafing my poor bum to bits. I began using wipes and loo roll to combo-hit those trouble areas and make sure everything was clean.
A couple of years ago, however, that all changed. I damaged my bum which meant it was pretty much essential that I was as gentle as humanly possible to my poor bum. Since then, baby wipes have been my savior and helped everything heal up nicely.
Having gotten quite sick of the smell and the price of Johnston baby wipes over the years I decided it was time to look for something a bit cheaper. Cue a trip to Asda. After going through a few different types of wipes with varying results, I found their "little angel cotton soft sensitive" baby wipes on a bulk buy offer and they even came all self contained in a big cardboard box. These are the same wipes pictured here but re-branded. It was about £6 for 8 packs of 64 wipes. When that offer isn't on you can usually pick them up for a pound for a single pack and sometimes they will be on 3 for 2's that work out just as cheap. Either way, they are very muchly affordable.
===Click n Close===
The packaging was the first thing that I really liked about these wipes. Firstly it's quite cute. It's completely different from the picture held now. The package is white with lilac polkadots and a multicoloured "little angels" logo on the top. The package looks lovely and neat and clean in my bathroom.
Secondly, for the longest time the seal on the other wipes that I had been using kept loosing its stickiness and opening, leaving the wipes to dry out and become pretty useless at cleaning anything. This pack of wipes, however, comes with a plastic bit around the part where you pull the wipes out which clicks shut. That means that, assuming you don't forget to close it after you use it, your wipes will stay nice and moist and ready to roll. The first time you use them you will need to remove a seal from inside the clicky bit and if you wanted you could replace that over the opening too for extra security. The clicky bit, however, works more than adequately at keeping the wipes useable! The rest of the packaging is simply a thick plastic bag-like coating. Only the hard plastic on the click-lock can be recycled, the rest of the packaging cannot.
===Take my hand===
Taking the wipes out is a little bit of a nuisance. There is simply a hole cut in the top of the packet. The wipes are all folded so that, in theory, the wipe pulls another one through the hole with it as you take it out. Unfortunately at times the next wipe in line doesn't want to let go of the hand of the one in front and so you sometimes end up with two or three wipes jumping out at you. Occasionally the next wipe doesn't come out at all and you'll find yourself having to pick the wipe through the hole, which is easy enough to do but does sometimes leave you accidentally pulling two or three at a time again.
This, however, is a problem that I've had with any packet like this. The only ones that don't do it are the ones in the big cylindrical plastic containers but these wipes don't come in one of them. It is only a minor issue too unless you really can't spare a few seconds to wipe your bum properly.
===Fingers and thumbs===
Previous wipes I have used have occasionally left me right up the metaphorical creek when I have discovered they aren't thick enough or absorbent enough to hold any mess within them. On more than one occasion I've had stuff seep through wipes and get on my hand. Thankfully these wipes are thick enough that I don't have to worry about that happening no matter what I'm cleaning up. They are also big enough that they can fold over and be used for more than one wipe meaning less waste. Usually I start with them folded in half and then half them again before disposing of them.
The only downside of these wipes is that they are not *supposed* to be flushed down the toilet. If you have a septic tank or old pipes in your house and you flush baby wipes you may find your pipes becoming clogged up. The wipes don't dissolve. If you DON'T have old thin pipes or a septic tank then really you are just shifting the problem to your nearest water stations filtering systems. So really it is naughty... but I've not had any issues with wipes flushing away or clogging the pipes in any house I've been in. Please don't hate me if you work in sewage!
===What's In em?===
As these are baby wipes, you would expect them to be soft. You would be right. These are the softest wipes I've ever used. In fact Asda state on the packaging that they are suitable for newborns, are hypoallergenic and are paraben free (basically nasty preservative chemical free). The wipes themselves I believe are cotton but other than the "cotton soft" in the name there's no hint as to what they are actually made up of. Each wipe is quite stretchy and can be pulled out of shape quite easily but they are stupendously soft.
As for the moisture that's kicking about your wet wipe, it has a few things in it. The front of the pack will tell you straight away that there is chamomile lotion, baby lotion and aloe vera in there. You would think that they would stink but they really are pretty much fragrance free just like it says on the front of the pack. There is a slight smell of something but it's really only noticeable if you put your nose right up to the wipe. It doesn't leave any fragrance on your skin after wiping either. Apparently all these little things will also help reduce the chances of nappy rash if you are actually using them on a baby.
There is a hefty list of ingredients included on the back, so I'll pop it in here just so everyone is aware, please feel free to skip if you aren't interested!
Aqua, Propelyne Glycol, Hydrogenated polydecene, Aloe Barbadensis leaf juice, Chomomilla recutita flower extract, carbomer (hopefully not the same kind you'll see on the news), tetrasodium, Glutamate diacetate, phenoxyethanol, benzoic acid, deydroacetic acid, sodium hydroxide.
Along with wiping away all kinds of disgusting bodily fluids from my incredibly hairy self, I have also used these for removing other stuff! As I perform on stage for Burlesque evenings occasionally, I can find myself in copious amounts of face paints and occasionally even some fake blood. If I've got more than one act in a night, I'll need to clean up on the go and usually pubs and venues don't tend to have a shower. As such these wipes come in fantastically handy. They have managed to get mixtures of golden syrup and red food colouring off of my skin which is a difficult substance to remove. Chocolate sauce? Done. Face paint? No problem. In fact I've not had difficulty getting anything off with these wipes. The fact they are so nice and soft really helps since they don't leave me chaffing or rubbing. The only issue I've ever had with them is when I use them on my stubble covered face. The fibers of the wipes usually get easily caught on my chin and leave me with lots of little white fluffy cotton like fibers kicking about my beard and ticking my mouth. Obviously that won't be an issue if you don't have stubble though! Most of all though, babies. Babies, babies, babies. I mean, they say baby wipes so obviously the only way they should ever be used is on those cute little bundles of noise and various other projectile fluids that everyone on the planet loves. Hmm.
When I saw that there are only 64 wipes in the pack I thought I'd be going through these at a rate of knots. Usually you get a few more than that in a pack. The fact that these are so thick, moist and can be folded to use more than once, however, means that the pack lasts ages. I go through one pack every three to four weeks. Given that I pretty much use them every time I go to the potty, that's a long time for them to be lasting!
I can't really say anything bad about these wipes. They are cheap, the packaging is great and the wipes last ages. They are soft enough to deal with my incredibly delicate areas and yet strong and thick enough to make up for the fact that I'm actually a 26 year old hairy as hell, filthy, ugly man. Ok, well, maybe not ugly. I've never had a mishap with these and they are really easy to carry around in a bag if you need them on the go. I'd give them a big 5 stars out of 5 stars. Quite frankly if these little angels can get me clean, then they'll more than likely work wonders on your little darling and your big hairy monsters.
~ Asda wet wipes ~
As I shop mostly in Asda I do tend to buy a lot of Asda own brand stuff. When it comes to baby items I do like Johnson's products for the bath but with wet wipes I usually buy Asda's Little Angels wipes.
Currently we are working our way through a box of 6 packs which we paid £4 for, but other than these ones I do like the Little Angels Extra Care wipes which cost 87p a pack.
Asda have a lot to offer in the terms of wipes ~
Little Angels Cotton Soft with Baby Cream - £2.48
Little Angels Eco wipes - £1.67
Little Angels Extra Care - 87p
Little Angels Fragrance Free - 87p or 4 for £3 or available in boxes of 6 for £4.50
Little Angels Fragranced - 87p or 4 for £3 or available in boxes of 6 for £4.50
Little Angels Pure & Mild - 87p
Little Angels Toilet Training Wipes (with or withour fragrance) - 70p or 3 for £2
So as you can see you are pretty much spoilt for choice.
The Fragranced Wipes come in a purple and white spotty packet with a plastic flip top lid, under this you will find a sticky tab, it doesn't matter if you loose the sticky tab as the flip top lid will keep the wipes moist.
They have a clean, fresh fragrance that is very pleasant. There are 64 wipes in a pack.
The Extra Care wipes are in a minty and white coloured spotty pack. Again they have the plastic flip top lid. They are impregnated with a lotion that helps protect your baby's bum from nappy rash. These have a really lovely scent and they really do work. There are 72 wipes in a pack.
I have never had any problems when using these wipes, they clear up any messes with ease, from dirty bums to sticky fingers, I have also used them for wiping my little ones high chair and walker, and the floor. I also find them handy to give the sofa a quick wipe.
They are nice and moist and come out the packets with ease.
Overall a brilliant, cheaply priced wipe :o) x
When it comes to baby wipes they are something that I purchase rather often. Ok I have no babies or children for that matter but do I like something in my handbag to wipe my hands on when they're feeling a little grubby an so on and I handle hamsters and my mates poodle often! I even use them to help me clean out hamster cages (to which I have five large ones of them, proviing they are unscented of course!) and these I spotted a couple of weeks ago in my local store only costing 47p for a packet of 24 wipes and these ones are the Asda Little Angels Unfragranced variety ones though these particular ones are also available in a pack of 80 wipes for just for 87p, I would have bought them but there were none of them in stock at the time!
The packaging is mainly white plastic with spots on it and we are simpy told of course that they are Asda 'Little Angels' Fragrance Free Cotton Soft Wipes, they have a resealable sticky section to the top of the packet and then on the bottom of the packet other information listed includes being told a little bit about the product and information such as contact details for Asda are of course given. Nice enough packaging this is however I did find the sticky label to the top it to not be all that sticky after a while so for that reason I was glad I only bought a small 24 packet offering or I could have ended up with dried out wipes before using them all up and I do resent wasting my money even if its only pennies!
White and as promised cotton soft these are actually rather large though not very thick material feeling wipes. I like the way that they are not drippy or sticky to use but are moist enough and as promised are pretty much fragrance free apart from when first used a small smell of a chemical fragrance is a little apparent but to be fair to it, it fades fast.
However I find these really great for my needs, just freshening up my hands and the lkes though of course these are not anti-bacterial and suitable for use on babbies/children alike They are not the best wipes I have ever used but they do remove stickiness from things, don't leave any feeling of residue behind and don't tear and/or fray in use so yep, to me they are pretty much worth the money they cost!

*~*~*~*~ Asda Little Angels Extra Care Baby Wipes ~*~*~*~*
This is a review for Little Angels Extra Care wipes. I have a 10 week old baby boy and although I have been buying branded items such as nappies and wipes for him, I realised that unless I try the cheaper brands I would never know if they were good or not, other peoples opinions vary hugely and there's nothing like trying something for yourself to actually know.
So, I was in Asda this week doing my shopping and I was about to grab my usual Johnsons wipes when I stopped myself, I walked back up the ailse a little and found the Asda Little Angel range. They had four different choices of wipes to choose from and the cheapest in the Little Angel range were around the 80p mark for scented in a pink packet or unscented in a white packet. £1 for these Extra Care baby wipes in a blue coloured pack and a light brown pack with wipes cointing shea butter also for £1.
As I usually buy the Johnsons with the impregnanted care strips in the wipes I thought the best choice would be for these.
*~*~ First Impressions ~*~*
My first impressions of these was wipes was really good, I noticed the gold stars on the right side of the packet telling me they had won Mother & Baby Gold Award for 2 years running in 2008 and 2009, impressed by this I look over to the left side and noticed the little blurb saying what these wipes are about.
Super Soft Wipes
And they come in a 72 pack with a plastic flip lid rather than a sticky tab. What's not to like I thought?
The blurb on the back of the packet also tells me that the caring lotion helps prevent nappy rash which is a good thing, that is why I buy the Johnsons wipes!
*~*~ Using the wipes ~*~*
When it came to changing time, I thought I'd try these one's now rather than wait for the other pack to be completely empty, I flipped open the plastic lid on top of the packet and ripped back the sticky tab. I was met with a nice, pleasant, fresh scent and taking a wipe out I was pleased that they were nice and moist and not too wet. The wipe felt soft to the touch and I was more than happy to use this on my baby's soft bottom.
They cleaned the mess up with no problem, each wipe has a good thickness and I found one sufficiant to clean this particular nappy change! They not only cleaned the mess but left him with a nice smelling bum too.
*~*~ Overall ~*~*
I will be buying these wipes from now on as they do the same as the branded wipes and cost less, I also noticed that some wipes only have 64 wipes in the packet and charge more!
My baby has had no adverse reactions to using these wipes and I have used them to remove my make-up and I had no problems either.
These wipes are incredible value for money and I can see why they won the Gold Award.
I am more than impressed with these wipes.
*~*~ 5/5 ~*~*
Thank you for reading.

Asda have their own baby range which includes toiletries, nappies and baby wipes. This is known as the Little Angels range.
The Little Angels range includes fragrance, fragrance free, pure and mild and extra care wipes. The extra care wipes have won Mother and Baby awards.
The wipes are hypo-allergenic and dermatologically tested. They are enriched with aloe vera to keep the skin soft and lotion to help prevent nappy rash. These wipes are aimed at using on babies bottoms but are suitable to be used by the full family. They should be disposed of with normal household rubbish and not flushed down the loo.
The wipes are presented within a rather large, plastic packet (not currently recycled). The pack is blue with white polka dots and features a gorgeous baby and a whole host of information regarding the wipes. The wipes are tightly packed together and there is a sticky tab and plastic lid on the top of the packet to keep the wipes moist. The wipes used be used up within 6months of opening.
A 72pk of extra care wipes can be bought in Asda supermarkets or online through www.asda.com. They are priced at £1.00 per pack. The others in the range are priced at 98p for an 80pk.
Our home isn't strange to baby wipes and we have tried most brands on the market. My son is 3 now but still in night time nappies so I still buy baby wipes mainly for this purchase. I also use them myself and for various other tasks. I started buying these Little Angels wipes around 6weeks ago and have bought a packet in with my shopping every week since.
These wipes represent excellent value for money considering Johnson's are priced at nearly double the price for only 64wipes. The packaging is eyecatching if a little big and the sticky/plastic tub works efficiently. The wipes are fairly easy to pull out but do tend to come out one or two at a time. They keep perfectly moist right down to the last wipe.
~Extra Care For My Boy~
I paid the extra few pence for this particular version of the wipes as I like them to contain something extra to protect my sons delicate skin. Each wipe is white and very thick and soft. The wipes are quite stretchy yet do not tear easily and have subtle boat, teddy and plane like designs etched onto them. An appealing factor (and the reason I like these for myself too) is the scent. The aroma is beautiful and smells like baby lotion mixed with talcum powder. So much nicer than the weird, plasticky aroma which unfragranced wipes often carry.
The wipes are generally used to cleanse my sons bum in the mornings before he puts his boxers on for nursery. They have the strench of 12hours pee to content with as my son isn't confident enough to go to bed without his pull up yet. The wipes are moist but not soaking wet. They are more than fit for their intended purpose and are exceptionally soft and gentle against my sons sensitive bottom. I only need to use one to give him a wipe down and his skin is left soft, clean and dry.
When it comes to bigger jobs such as cleansing a dirty bum, these wipes rise to the challenge. Due to the thick and durable nature of them, I find myself needing to use 2-3 to get rid of any poo from Boos bottom and any smell is wiped away too. They do not tear even with me having long nails and I don't end up with anything icky on my hands! Top marks for bottom cleaning!
I can confirm that beautiful scent does linger (and no, I am not in the habit of sniffing my toddlers bottom!). I usually follow a cleansing routine but if I am being lazy, these wipes make ideal facial wipes. They remove surface make up and the scent is lovely on my face. I don't go near my eyes with them though and they don't particularly moisturise my extra dry skin but they do give it a freshen up. They are moist enough to give other parts of my body a freshen up but I shower daily!
I always carry baby wipes with me as they are perfect for on the going cleansing and these are no exception. They are strong enough to clean grubby fingers and gentle enough to give a childs face a wipe over after a picnic or trip in the car. Because they aren't too moist, the skin dries instantly and no residue is left behind. They are good for dusting as well but I stockpile the Value or Smartprice wipes for this purpose now.
These are by far the best, budget baby wipes I have ever bought and I only wish I had spotted them when my son was a baby as they are so much more appealing than the Boots or Huggies wipes. The are a fantastic quality, smell good and perform very well with various tasks whilst being gentle to the skin so I cannot fault them.
Whether you have a baby, toddler or just use baby wipes for your own personal use, I would highly recommend that you give these wipes a try. Well worth a quid a pack.
Thanks for reading x
At around 98p for a pack of 80 wipes, you can't go wrong with these. They are soft, gentle and smell amazing.
Asda have since updated their packets (they seem to do this every couple of years, I suppose to keep it interesting and appealing) so the stock photo here is a bit outdated. They come in a light purple colour with white polka dots, with a cartoon baby as the logo beside the name.
The packet is a tough plastic with a hard plastic opening (neither of which can be recycled) that will keep the wipes fresh - as it is clip seal rather than just an opening with a bit of sticky plastic on. There is a sticky plastic seal over the inside of the wipes, but that is meant for the bin and I assume is only in place so that the wipes don't dry out in transit or on the shelves. Once opened the product is safe to use up to 6 months after (although, who can hang onto wipes that long?)
The wipes are suitable for newborns and are hypo-allergenic - which is a claim used in the cosmetics industry that states the product will cause fewer allergic reactions. The wipes are also enriched in aloe vera - which has skin healing properties - and baby oil. I think the baby oil gives them that nice smell.
Ingredients are probably the bit most parents aren't looking at, but I'll include a few anyway and try to explain the more complicated ingredients; Aqua, which is good old H20, aka water. Glyceryl Oleate is taken from "naturally occurring oils and fats" (I assume this to mean lanolin, which is the oils that come from the sheep's wool). Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, is the aloe vera. Propylene Glycol is another naturally occurring substance and can sometimes be used in anti-freeze or tattoo ink.
Other ingredients include Carbomer , Coco-Glucoside , Tetrasodium Glutamate Diacetate , Sodium Hydroxide , Phenoxyethanol , Methylparaben , Propylparaben (manufactured synthetically) , 2-Bromo-2-Nitropropane-1,3-Diol.
These wipes are created especially for Asda stores and the store claim not to test on animals and fund research on alternative cosmetic testing.
As a parent I've found these wipes coming in very handy for sticky toddler hands and the inevitable nappy changes - although I would like to be able to pick up something that wasn't quite so fully loaded with chemicals that don't seem that great, they'll do - and besides, they do seem to irritate my son's skin less than any other wipes - and they are about the same size as leading brand wipes.
With my first baby I always bought the more expensive named brands of anything wipes, nappies etc. With my second I wasn't as fussy! I always thought that a shops own brand of baby wipe would be dry thinner and I
would probably end up using more so would prob spend the same! My husband picked up these wipes while doing our weekly shop at first i was annoyed but thought I would give them a try ad I'm glad I did!! These clean my babys bum and face just as well as the more expensive brand! They are thick and moist and are a fraction of the cost! They are handy for giving your child a quick clean and I have found myself using them to wipe not only my kids but to remove my make up and to clean up some of the mess made when kids are eating drawing etc! Would recommend these for baby and for yourself!! X
I buy baby wipes to use mainly for removing make up. Having tried a number of different brands including the more expensive major brands such as Pampers, Huggies, etc I've found these Asda ones to be ideal. At just 98p for a pack 80 wipes these are great value for money, especially as the major brands only tend to have around 64 wipes per pack.
They do a great job of removing makeup and even waterproof mascara. After wiping my face I can see just how effective the wipe has been by taking a look at it and seeing all the makeup marks on it.
These wipes came in fragranced and unfragranced. I always by the fragranced ones and even although I can be prone to dry skin on my face I don't find that that these wipes worsen this. The packet they come in is attractive and has a plastic part on top to open/close the packet.
I have noticed that when I start the pack the wipes don't seem very moist but when you get further down the pack they become moister. I think this goes for most brands of these however as I've noticed this also with more expensive brands. I find the wipes to be of pretty good quality. They're reasonable thick and very soft and a nice smell.
Although I don't normally use them for a baby, I have done so on my little nephew. They've done the job just as well and are great for cleaning messy hands and face.
Another great use for these is cleaning leather sofas. They do a fantastic job and are perfectly safe to use on this. They're also handy for cleaning minor spills and marks on floors or worktops.
Overall I'm very happy with the product. These are great value for money and something every home should have. These are not just for babies, they have so many uses for all ages.
When having my baby i tried out lots and lots of wipes. Some seemed to dry, others very thick, especially for new borns, and some leaving the skin a little excoriated.
I shop at Asda generally anyway and love value for money especially todays climate.
Asda do thier own range of wipes from smart price to toilet training wipes for for review purposes i am going to talk about thie little angels range.
I have been buying these wipes since my 3 year old was a newborn, and they have recently changed the packaging from that aboce, to blue and white spottyness, more prevelance on the white with for the fragrence free range. The logo has remained the same and the opening to the packet are the same too.
Available at all Asda stores, they do fantastic deals being able to buy 4 packets for £3, and just recently during one of their baby events, i picked up 6 packets for £4. These are available fragrenced and fragrence free and you can mix and match between the 2.
The packets are made of plastic and have an opening at the top that can be clipped up. On initial opening, there is a sticky 'freshness' seal beneath the opening to maintin the moisture of the wipes.
Each packet has 80 wipes and lasts me aprox a week if im lucky, so for £3, you could have a months supply of baby wipes. These are dermatologically testes and hypoallergenic, and as stated on the packagin have won gold mother and baby award for 2 years running. Asda state that these wipes are enriched with 'baby lotion' and 'aloe', to help reduce the effects of sore bottoms from urine.
It is important to note if feel that this product is not tested on animals and that the packaging is non recyclable.
Now the wipes themselves are white in colour, the frangrance ones smell fresh and suprisingly i know, the fragrence free wipes dont smell of anything, lol.
To say the wipes were wet would be an overstatement, but damp they are. They are soft to the touch and non exfoliating in anyway perfect for little bottoms. I have never had a problem in using these wipes and no ill effect has been made upon my son.
In fact to be fair, these wipes are multi-purpose. I think they are a must in any glove box for cleaning those hands fresh from eating chips by the seaside, and they make perfect make up removing pads too!!
All in all they are great value and i dont hink to be fair i have anything to grumble about regarding these wipes. Great value, and always in plenty of supply on the shelves.
I am a big fan of Asda's baby wipes because they are so handy - you can use them to clean your baby's bum, to clean your toddler's face, to freshen up after a long day - I've even been known to clean our leather sofa with baby wipes!
The Asda's own branded baby wipe have around 80 wipes in each pack and you can buy four packets for £3.00 - I think this is great value - especially when you consider how much branded baby wipes cost!
The packaging pictured above has been updated, Asda's Fragrance Free baby wipes now come in a white packet with purple polka dots on it and the packets of fragranced baby wipes have a purple background with white polka dots on them.
Other than the change in branding, these baby wipes are the same as they've always been. Personally I buy the fragranced version because although they have a light smell to them I find that they are still very sensitive on my skin. I'm prone to getting rashes when a beauty product doesn't agree with me, but I've had no issues with these wipes.
I also like the fact that these baby wipes are quite moist, other baby wipe brands can be a little dry, which is no good for me because I meaning use them to clean and freshen up, but these wipes have just enough moisture within them. I think that the soft plastic packaging and the solid plastic lid helps to maintain the moisture within these wipes.
Overall I'd say that this product is great - every home should own a packet of Asda's baby wipes, because they are really handy - and not just for the baby, but for the whole family.
I was raised on various wet wipes, they would be produced whenever we had a barbecue or picnic, by my mum, who would then insist on wiping your chops for you so that you were presentable. These days, I can manage to the wiping myself, but I don't mind admitting that I do still use them. I actually carry a pack in the glove compartment of my car.
The main purpose is for babies, but the wipes are also handy for general day to day cleaning purposes. I find them ideal for wiping the face or lips if you have just been out for a meal and need to freshen up in the car. They are also handy for in car cleaning and getting rid of smears. Occasionally, I might use them to wipe around skirting boards or bannisters for a deep down wet clean.
The wipes cost just under the pound mark and for about seventy five wipes, that is pretty good value. The wipes are soft, moist and have that lovely baby changing smell about them. To pinpoint the smell, it smells of talc mixed with baby oil and a very faint haze of something more stringent.
I have used them to wipe my own face and they do not irritate the skin. I have also used them to wipe off excess amounts of fake tan and they work really well at collecting excess dirt or oils that have built up on the skin. The wipes are also sturdy and do not tear or go too stiff quickly. The moisture retention is rather impressive so you could use a wipe and return to it within an hour and still find it moist. Of course, the pack is resealable so the wipes stay fresh and damp, unless you leave them exposed in bright sunlight for ages, then they will dry out. Overall though, good smell, good value and handy for general facial cleaning and also multi purpose cleaning.
using wet wipes are a big thing in my house. I have noticed that they come in handy for lots of things and probably use them more than i should. We have been struggling financially lately due to redundances and my partner starting a sub contract job that it is not all it has cracked up to be, so the cheaper things are the better.
I do all my shopping on-line and have it delivered which is much more convenient and on-line asdas own wipes are 4 packs for three pounds which is very good this means each pack is less than a pound and four packs will last me a week which i find good value for money.
Each pack of wipes have 80 wipes in which is slighly more than some of the more expensive brands which is great for the amount i use. There are two different packs which is a pink pack which are cotton soft, i am not too keen on these ones because i have found that they feel very dry and i struggle to clean my daughters bottom when she has done a soiled nappy. The other pack is a white one which is fragrance free, this pack i lke because they have more moisture and i have found that none of my children have had sore skin by using them, both of my daughters suffer from dry skin so it is really good that the do not make it flare up. Also the white pack is enriched with aloe vera and baby lotion, i like this because i buy aloe vera toilet roll for all the big people in our house because i fell that it protects the sensitive areas and this is no different and the lotion in them will keep my childs skin soft because of constant wiping of areas could take alot of their oils from their skin.
I like the packaging to these wipes too, they are in a plastic bag type of packaging which up to now none of my children have been able to rip open so that the wipes dry out like other brands i have bought mpw that i have said that one will find a way of ripping them open later. It has a plastic click flap that you open so that you can get the wipes out of the pack and when you click it shut it will ensure that the remaining wipes in the pack are still full of moisture ready for the next time you ar going to use them.
They are easy to get out of the pack too, when you pull out the first wipe it will pull the next one out ready for you when you need it. On some occasions it will not pull the next one out but not often and if it doesnt it is not hard to be able to pull it out again i found that the huggies got stuck together and difficult to get out.
On the pack it states the direction of use and how to use them safely, you may be thinking safely what does that mean, well you are not allowed to flush them dowm the toilet due to they are not bip digradable and if they come in contact with eyes because of what is used can cause irritation to the eye so i would advise to be careful when using them on you childrens faces. It does state the ingredints on the pack, this is not information that i have to look at due to my children ae not alleric to anything.
I use these wipes on my childrens faces after meals or having very messy food like chocolate or icecream, i also use them on my own face due to soap irritates my skin. I have found that they are very good to wipe over my leather sofas when the children have made a mess and lately my one cat has had to hwve his paws wiped because he keeps treading in his own poo and due to cats not liking water he will very nicely sit and have it wiped which is great.
I think these are a very well priced multi use wipe, i think that there is ,a sufficient amount in a pack and are very good for my childrens skin, they hold no smell and ae very moist which means they clean the area very well, they are also very good to use to freshen up in hot weather. I noq buy these in every shop but i wouldnt buy the pink pack due to the lack of moisture.
We usually buy Pampers or Johnsons wipes for my sister because they are deffo the ones that suit her skin best, but we're in the middle of potty training her so sometimes we might buy a cheaper brand because her skin is obviously not as sensitive as a tiny baby's would be. Sorry about this, but the reason I brought these Asda baby wipes was because she did a poo in her knickers while we was out shopping last week and I just grabbed the first pack of wipes I could see so I could run to the toilet to clean her up.
Asda do quite a few different wipes but the ones I brought were the same as the packet in the photo Dooyoo have got up and they are from the Little Angels range. The wipes cost 87p for 80 wipes and that is brill value because Johnsons and Pampers are a lot more expensive and you only get 64 wipes.
Another good thing is that the wipes come in a pack that has got a plastic lid on it that clicks shut to keep the packet airtight so that the wipes do not dry out between uses.
The wipes aren't madly thick but they are very soft and easy to use. The original accident of pooey knickers was easily cleaned up using these wipes and her skin was clean and pink looking again using just 2 wipes..... the knickers went into the bin though because NO WAY was I carrying them round Asda and my sister had to kind of go commando until we got home! lol
They have got just the right amount of moisture on them and have been good for everything since I brought them, I haven't had any more dirty bums to clean but my sister is still in nappies at night and the wipes are cleansing when it comes to changing her in the morning. I also use them to wipe her hands and face after she's had something to eat and have used the wipes to remove my make up..... they do a pretty good job at that as well but had problems with my eye liner for some reason even though they managed to remove the thick mascara I was wearing!
Recommended.... half the price of big brand wipes and do a wicked job. They have got a nice smell as well that doesn't particularly smell of babies but are a bit more grown up!
I've been using Asda's own baby wipes for some time now and thought I'd give it the praise it deserves. Considering its low cost (You get 80 wipes per pack, each pack costing under a pound on average) you get a lot of quality. The wipes are multi-purpose and don't tear easily which is a definite plus that I wasn't expecting from such a cheap product.
The packaging is very feminine - a soft lilac colour with a large white, plastic lid. It's rare to see plastic lids on baby wipe products but it works well and ensures the wipes retain moisture. As the name suggests, you can use the wipes on babies for preventing nappy rash and clearing them up in general. I don't have a baby but I use them and find they are very soft and smell nice - maybe it's the aloe vera.
The only real issue I found when using these wipes is that when you first open the pack the first few are a little dry, but other than that I can't fault them.
To be perfectly honest - Johnsons and other named brands can be up to twice the price and no better for it. You shouldn't worry about buying these just because they're ASDA brand - the quality hasn't been compromised by the price whatsoever.
About the product - the packet is pink with pictures of white feathers on it. You get 80 wipes in each packet which is dermatologically tested and hypoallergenic. Enriched with baby lotion and aloe vera makes it better for your babys skin than the old harsh alcohol types.
On the packet at the back it lists directions for use, safety precautions, ingredients and contact info for asda.
The top of the packet has a hard plastic top attached to it to help keep the wipes moist.
I have bought these wipes whenever I get Asda shopping. While I dont use them exclusively they are among the list of the few that I will buy.
A nice fragrance, hard to describe properly but it reminds me of baby talcum powder. I have always found these wipes to keep their moisture well compared to some brands before. I think this helps because of the plastic top.
While I dont have a baby I still buy these because I use them for endless things. Ideal for cleaning messes up when you dont want the hassle of getting cloths or polish etc out for a small item. I also use them as a refreshing face wipe if it's particularly hot etc.
Rather than buying a small packet of wipes when travelling with the family I have just taken a wad of these wipes out the packet and put them in a sandwich bag tied up. Even without them being in their original packaging they have always kept their moisture.
Overall a good wipe and I would say does as good a job if not better than the more expensive brands.
