~ Asda Smartprice Baby Wipes ~
I regularly use baby wipes in my home for several reasons and find they are a helpful addition to my bathroom cabinet for a variety of little jobs around the house. In addition, there are several youngsters who are regular visitors to my home, and so I tend to keep a pack of baby wipes in the cupboard for cleaning up after them, particularly my young nephews who are one and four years old, whom I baby-sit for on a regular basis.
I recently purchased two packs of Baby Wipes from Asda, with one of the purchases being from Asda's budget 'Smartprice' brand. This review outlines my experiences of using these budget-branded wipes.
I paid only 51 pence for the large pack, which contains 80 individual wipes within. I thought this price reflected excellent value for money, particularly as I usually pay in the region of £1 for a pack of wipes that contains considerably less than the 80 wipes presented here. I do think it is worth mentioning here that I have noticed some of the items in the Smartprice brand will often have their prices fluctuating a little at times, so do bear that in mind when considering this purchase.
The packaging is fairly uninspiring, I must admit. This is true of most of the items I have purchased from the Asda Smartprice brand in the past, however, as the brand is very much aimed at being a 'budget-friendly' one. I do have to admit that I am not particularly bothered about such matters, but it's true to say that the packaging is neither eye-catching or even remotely attractive. Comprising of an oblong pack made of white plastic, the familiar Smartprice branding appears in colours of green at the top, and the product's name appears on the front in bold font. I did like the addition of an image of a cute-looking teddy bear to the side of the pack, however, feeling that this helped 'soften' the product's image, making it look slightly less clinical.
As with most other Baby Wipe products that I buy regularly, the Smartprice version has a sticker closure on the front which enables you to re-seal the pack between uses. This is an important feature, because without it, the wipes in the pack can easily become dried out and useless. Prior to use, I was slightly sceptical about the Smartprice Wipes' pack closure, wondering if it was of an inferior quality, but I do have to confess that I was wrong in the assumption, having found that the sticky closure has never lost its adhesive or become unstuck during the time these wipes have been in use; all of the wipes have remained suitably moist and fit for purpose, so I have no complaints on this point at all.
The Smartprice Wipes have a pleasant texture, I find, with their soft, 'woven' sort of material feeling soft and delicate to the touch. This is ideal, I think, considering their intended purpose is to assist in the cleanliness of youngsters.. - who would want to use a rough or scratchy wipe on a baby or child? I do admit that I like my Baby Wipes to have a slightly 'textured' surface, and have found this design feature to be agreeable, but of course in the Smartprice branded version this is nowhere to be found within the white wipes' surface, as expected. They do look and feel plain and boring, but they are lovely and soft.
I find these particular wipes are slightly smaller than most other brands that I buy regularly. They are more than fit for purpose, however, and I don't recall ever having to use more of these wipes than I normally would with another brand. My four year old nephew and I were recently enjoying some sticky biscuits with smiley faces on, and of course my nephew's hands and face were rather covered in jam after our happy consumption of the snacks. I handed him the pack of Smartprice Wipes to use, and he was able to open the pack himself, remove one wipe, re-seal the pack and clean both his hands and face with the wipe before disposing of it in the bin. I supervised him, of course, and was pleased to note that the wipe's size was ample for his little hands and face.
The Smartprice Wipes are branded as being ''Fragrance Free" and whilst I admit that I do prefer to use Baby Wipes that are softly fragranced, I haven't really missed this too much during the time that the Smartprice Wipes have been used instead. I do feel that unscented wipes are probably more suitable for babies' sensitive skin, and many consumers do seem to prefer such products being without perfume or scent, but I admit that I'd prefer a little 'talcum-like' scent to be evident on the wipes' surface.
Another valid point to note here, I think, is the fact that the Smartprice Wipes are not overly 'wet', so I don't find that they feel uncomfortable or harsh on my sensitive skin. I like the way that they remove any stickiness or dirt from the skin's surface quickly and easily, and without leaving a horrid residue on the skin. In fact, they feel rather pleasant to use, and I have no negative points to report about them in this regard.
In addition, I have suffered nothing in the way of aggravation or irritation to my sensitive skin, nor has my nephew who has dry skin issues. In fact, during the time the Smartprice Wipes have been used to clean up our hands after crafting activities or to remove stickiness from our hands, I've found them to be rather kind to our skin issues... surprising, considering the product's extremely low cost.
Taking everything into account, I do feel the Asda Smartprice Baby Wipes are a worthwhile purchase and I will definitely buy them again as they are really rather good and offer excellent value for money.
When it comes to buying baby wipes for my Son Jayden I do not really stick to one brand and tend to go for whatever is on offer at the time. As well as having wipes at home there are also baby wipes kept at my parents house so when we go over we do not have to load up the nappy bag, however the wipes at my parents house recently ran out so I nipped in our local Asda to buy a packet. I decided to try Asda Smart Price Baby Wipes, I had never tried this brand before but thought I would give them a go, after all I was sure I could find a use for them if Jayden didn't get on well with them.
The Asda Smart Price Baby Wipes are basically plain white, rectangle wipes, they are made from an extremely soft material which I was quite surprised with them being so cheap. The wipes are of a good size measuring approximately 14.5 x 20cm's, size wise they were within keeping of the more expensive branded baby wipes.
The Asda Smart Price Baby Wipes are fragranced and I was also pleased to discover that the wipes are extremely moist, I cannot stand baby wipes that simply are not wet enough as you go through so many of them just for one nappy change, however in terms of moisture these wipes were excellent. There is nothing fancy about the wipes at all and there is no pattern on them at all, however this didn't bother me as the quality of the wipe is more important than the appearance.
These wipes are extremely handy, they can be used for a range of things including nappy changes as well as wiping messy hands and faces when out and about or at home. The fact that they are fragrance free means that if you wipe around your Childs face the wipes will not leave a taste.
They do not just have to be used on children, adults can use these as well as they are extremely effective at cleaning your hands so if you wanted to clean your hands before eating when out but there was no where to wash them you could simply use one of the Asda Smart Price Baby Wipes to freshen them up.
These wipes are only available from Asda as they are part of their Smart Price range, each pack contains 80 wipes and cost just 51p, personally I think this is excellent value for money, we go through so many baby wipes so finding some good wipes that are also reasonably priced is important.
I have been using the Asda Smart Price Baby Wipes for a while now and have been extremely pleased with them, the fragrance free wipes are gentle on his skin and have caused no problems at all.
I like the fact that these wipes are not too dry as it makes them economical and most importantly they clean your baby's skin quickly and easily without having to continuously wipe over it which could cause it to become sore.
The fact that there is no fragrance to the wipes doesn't really bother me as Jayden can use fragranced wipes, however it does make them ideal for sensitive skin.
The wipes are excellent value for money you really do get a lot of wipes for your money.
When I first bought these wipes I was a bit worried about the quality of them with them being so cheap, however this was not a problem the wipes turned out to be of an excellent quality despite the price. I would definitely purchase these wipes again in the future as they are extremely handy to have whether in your baby's nappy bag or just in your handbag to take out with you. This is a product I would recommend.
My daughter is due to give birth to her 3rd child next month and so I have been buying lots of baby goodies for her baby basket I am making up for when the baby arrives. This basket doesn't just contain baby products such as baby wipes etc, it contains a few little goodies for herself, her hubby and my little grandson so that they can have some little treats as a family together when my daughter arrives home with the little one. Is just a little extra present for them all to enjoy.
I bought these wipes to give them a go first myself for my 2 grandchildren to see if they were suitable or not and if they irritated their skins. They come in a plastic wrapper and it has the name clearly on the front and so can be easily spotted on a shelf. It has a pull back strip which keeps the wipes nice and moist inside the packet.
They are soft wipes and aren't as thick a material as the branded kind but that does obviously reflect the price and I expected them to be fairly thin material but they are adequate enough thickness but I do have to use a few more at times for wiping my little granddaughter's dirty bottom. That doesn't often happen so much now because she is potty trained and almost clean.
They do have a soft texture to them and are quite moist wipes and they do hold the moisture long enough to wipe the bottom clean. I tested a few wipes on my own skin first before using them on my granddaughter because I needed to know if they felt rough when wiping over skin. I found they felt quite soft against my skin and felt really refreshing and not too wet.
They remove dirt from a child's bottom really well and I find I do have to use more than one for a very dirty bottom and sometimes up to 3 wipes but I have found this the case using branded wipes at time so I did expect to probably need to use more than the 3 but I haven't had the need so far to use more than 3 at a time.
They have no smell to them because they are fragrance free wipes. They are quite gentle wipes and not harsh on the skin, have found these wipes haven't irritated my grandchildren's skins or my sensitive skin. They have caused no rashes etc, so all good for us all.
I have used them to wipe dirty fingers and faces when my grandchildren have been eating a sticky food as a little treat. The wipes do dissolve food really well without the need to keep on rubbing to remove it and make the skin sore from rubbing all the time.
I have tested these for removing my make up, have found they remove my foundation, lipstick, eye shadow and blusher fairly well but have found they struggle to remove my mascara completely. They don't attack the mascara in the same way as branded wipes and I have found they don't fully remove all traces of make up from my skin. But I do always use a cleanser anyway so this isn't a huge issue for my usage to remove make up. But if you are still wanting to use them for make up removing I would bear this in mind.
They are really good wipes for refreshing the skin and cooling the face during hot weather. I have used them to cool my face when I have been having a hot flush during the day and night alongside my fan lol. They just help cool my face before the fan kicks in to cool my face lol.
There are 80 wipes inside the packet and cost just 51p, I think this is a huge amount of wipes for this cheap price and well worth the money. They are so affordable for any budget in my opinion and ideal if you are struggling with money and are wanting to buy a cheaper brand. Well worth giving a go to see if they are suitable or not and if they aren't then not much money has been wasted in my opinion.
After I tested my first packet I bought another 4 packets to add to the basket. I think they are going to come in handy and if they are not suitable for my new born grandchild my daughter can still use them for my other grandchildren.
I will buy these again in the future, they are good wipes and a good quality for the very cheap price and I am happy with the results from these very cheap wipes for just 51p for a pack of 80.
Also on Ciao under my username pinky50.
I give them 5 stars.
Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.
I tend to buy baby wipes instead of make up wipes as they're obviously a lot cheaper, and literally do the same job, but better. They're bigger than most make up wipes and tend to have less chemicals and fragrances that irritate my skin. Some make up wipes that I've had have also been dry and not taken off my make up properly, so baby wipes are the best option for me. I've just started student life so I'm on a rather tight budget, and I'm trying to save money where ever I can.
I decided to go on a hunt for the cheapest baby wipes I could find, so looked online and found these in Asda, with 80 wipes for 51p. I think that's the cheapest I've ever bought full sized baby wipes for!
The baby wipes are in a white packet with green accents and a cute teddy bear waving on the front. Asda Smart Price is written on the front along with '80 wipes' and 'fragrance free'. They have a simple resealable label on the top, and I would have preferred the plastic lid but at 51p I can't really complain.
The baby wipes themselves are fragrance free which is a plus as I didn't want to walk around with a face smelling like babies all the time. The wipes are very soft to use on the face, and don't feel rough on the skin like some baby wipes can. They also don't leave a sticky residue or film on the face. This is good as you don't have to wash your face after use too. Some baby wipes leave fibres on the face but these do not which is another plus.
They remove my make up very well, I only need to use one or two baby wipes and I do wear quite heavy eye make up (eye shadows, eye liner, brow liner, primer, etc..).
The baby wipes last a long time too, as I've found packs of 20 or 15 go VERY quickly, but these last me about a month. They're also good for just freshening up and you can even use them to clean leather!
These wipes are a brilliant purchase! At 51p for 80 wipes, you can't really go wrong. They're cheap and multi-purpose, resealable and are good on the skin, even sensitive skin.
We tend to get through alot of baby wipes in our house. The girls especially like helping themselves to wipe their hands and faces, and toys and they like 'cleaning' with them. The youngest (18months) loves emptying a whole packet of wipes out onto the floor before I have noticed and sits there giggling. So I decided to try the cheaper brands.
The packaging has been changed since the file picture above. They are still white with Asda in green capital letters and 'Smart' is a white bubble type font outlined with green and the 'price' in block green font. There is a cute looking fluffy teddy bear waving with a smile on its face. The opening tab is the same as other wipes, it is clear plastic. I try to ensure that this is shut properly after use to make sure the wipes don't dry out. The packet contains 80 wipes and they are fragrance free.
On the back of the packet it lists the ingredients and a warning about avoiding contact with eyes and how the wipes should be disposed of in normal household waste and not flushed down the toilet.
The wipes are easy to get out of the packet. They are white in colour and quite thin compared to other wipes I have tried before. They seem almost stretchy. They are soft though and clean mucky hands and face with ease. My girls don't have sensitive skin and these wipes certainly haven't caused them any harm. I have used them on myself too to give my face a quick wipe before crawling into bed.
Ingredients: - Aqua, Propylene Glycol, Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate, Polysorbate 20, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Sodium Citrate, Citric Acid, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Benzoic Acid, Dehydroacetic Acid, Sodium Chloride.
These are obviously only available from Asda stores and on their online groceries site www.asda.com. They are a bargain price at 51pence a packet.
Overall I will buy these again. I probably wouldn't have used them for my girls when they were newborns but now they are older these are good for us. Not the most luxurious of wipes but clean well enough for a good price.
Thanks for reading.
We go through a lot of baby wipes in our house and so I tried lots of different packs before I settled on a couple of decent ones that I buy. Always one to try and save the pennies I tried out the supermarkets value ranges but came to the conclusion that none of them are really all that good one of the ones I tried was these Asda Smartprice wipes.
The wipes come in a very simple white plastic packet with green detailing on the packet, the pack tells you that there are 80 in the pack and has the outline of a little teddy bear on it. The pack looks very simple and is pretty obvious that the wipes are cheap in my opinion although of course cheap doesn't always mean bad. The wipes cost 51p which is great value as the usual ones I buy cost £3.50 for 4 packs.
The packet has a pull back section on the packet which is pretty strong and I found stayed sealed through the use of the whole pack, the wipes inside the pack are white in colour and very thin. The wipes smell of pretty much nothingness, they are very moist and they don't rip which is great. I found that they are really good for cleaning bums when the little one has only had a wee and very good at cleaning mouths and hands as long as they're not overly sticky. I love these for cleaning around the home and have found this is the best yuse for them with them being so moist.
I would rate these 3 stars as they are not so good on dirty nappies and they don't get rid of stickiness very well, they are a great price, soft and don't cause any irritation. On the whole they do an ok job but personally I find you use more of them for the worse jobs and therefore it is false economy at that point so I will stick with the more expensive better brands.
I have a three year old son and as you can gather I have to clean up sticky fingers messy face etc i also use these wet wipes to clean his bottom after going to the loo as their cheaper than buying those toddler training wipe things you can get.
It is a white plastic packaging with the product title and it states that the wipes are fragrence freehand has a picture of a brown teddy on the right hand side of the packet
The back of the packet states that the wipes are dermatologically tested and contain gentle cleansers. They are ideal for use at feeding time,for use on baby's hands and face or for all the family as a freshen up wipe especially when travelling. I have to admit these claims are true
Dis odium cocoamphodiacetatw
Aloe barbadensis leaf juice
It also states that The wipes are safe to use for upto 6 months after opening
The wipe itself:
They are white in colour they are not to wet and not to dry, they also are thin but not to thin where you can't use them to wipe anything up.
Final verdict :
They are a great buy and have a multi purpose use not just for cleaning hands,face etc they are actually good for when you are dusting,I also use them to remove my makeup and my husband uses them to clean the dashboard in the car their even good for cleaning bird poo of the car lol
When both of my little ones were young I always insisted on buying fragrance free wipes because I felt they were a lot kinder on my babies' skin. Now my youngest is 15 months old I am a lot more relaxed on what wipes I buy. On a particularly frugal ASDA shop I decided to try out their smart price baby wipes. There are 80 wipes in each packet and with it costing just 51p that means only 0.6p per wipe.
I have been very surprised at the quality of these wipes. They are very moist and hard wearing, more than you would expect for a basic wipe. They easily tackle the worst of my son's nappies without getting my fingernails dirty!
The packaging is very simple, baring ASDA's smart price colours of green and white. There is just a sticky piece of plastic covering the opening for the wipes. As with all wipes you must ensure you keep them covered all they will dry up very quickly. With this one you can open and close it as often as you like and it still stays sticky ensuring the wipes stay at their best.
Unless you want a specific brand or you are worried about your babies' skin then there is absolutely no reason not to buy these wipes. From now on I will always use them and would more than recommend them to friends and family.
With the recession going on we really wanted to try and cut back on some of the things we were using and so we decided to try the value range wipes while shopping at Asda.
To look at they are nothing special a very simple and basic packet however how the pack looks doesn't really matter. In the centre is the sticky label that covers the hole to access the wipes. And this is the first problem. Within a few times of opening the packet this lost its stickiness and so the top few wipes would dry out.
The wipes themselves are also quite small and thin and so there not the best for cleaning a very messy bum! It seems you have to use a lot more then you would with any other wipes. They are also too wet and so I found after using them, My little boys bum was still really wet and needed to be dried after as I was worried just putting a nappy straight on would give him a rash.
After only a few days of using these wipes my boy was left with a sore bum and so I had to stop using them. I carried on using the rest to remove my make up and even I found them to dry out my skin and left it feeling sore.
Overall I wouldn't recommend these, even though they are very cheap so is the quality.
To look at them they dont realy look that appealing the packaging is very basic and no pictures no nothing, but hey a pack of wipes is just a pack of wipes it does the same thing!
So i got them to try out but i had problems right from the start they are way too thin, and you need to use a lot to clean a dirty nappy, i suppose for the price of them (51p) it doesnt realy matter but they started to give my son a rash after using them a few times so i had to stop!
I have spoke to a few people aswell who have used them and had the same problem with the rash, i suppose it does depend on youre childs skin they are always worth a try though for the price!
However i do buy them for other uses, i always seem to keep a packet in the cupboard for spills, and general cleaning of hands on the older children baby wipes always seem to come in handy!
I would say give them a shot and see if youre child is ok with them, and you may be able to save your self some money in the long run! but for me i will be sticking to my other brands!
These aren't the best baby wipes on the market but they'll do.
The wipes come in a pack of 80. The wipes can be resealed. I paid 47p for these baby wipes, which was a fraction of the price of the premium baby wipes. The wipes are of a decent size and shape. They don't have much of a fragrance to them, although they have a subtle scent that I find hard to describe. If I had to describe it I would say it was a mild medicinal scent.
The wipes can be used to take off your make-up at the end of the day, although for waterproof mascara you will need extra scrubbing. The wipes are small in size but they are quite strong and they somehow manage to maintain their shape and texture. The wipes feel nice on the skin and they always manage to freshen me up.
The wipes are great to keep in the car. They're ideal for travelling and for cleaning grubby hands on the go. The wipes don't dry out the skin and they clean the skin well, taking away the dirt and grime that has built up on the surface of the skin.
I sometimes babysit for my friend's children and these are a lifesaver for dirty hands and fingers! They're safe to use on the baby's skin and they wipe away food from around the mouth.
Not the best quality wipes on the market but they're not the worst either!
Recently the previously impossible happened - my daughter ran out of wipes. We have always used Pampers Sensitive, so I sent hubby off to Asda to get a box. To my horror, he returned with these Asda Smartprice wipes, claiming that Asda had ran out of Pampers and even my back-up choice of Huggies (yeah right hubby). He was chuffed as he loves to save money and these were 49p a pack.
The wipes state they are dermatologically tested and gentle enough for baby skin. I was sceptical. The wipes come in a cheap, flimsy packet with no pictures or anything, just the green Asda logo and name of the wipes. No money spent clearly. The wipes are not suitable to be used near eyes, which immediately makes me question just how gentle and safe they are - after all, they are meant to be used on my baby's face! I like to use her Pampers wipes to remove my make up, but would definitely never use these on my face.
The wipes are thin, much thinner than the better brands. They are stretchy and damp but not wet. They have no smell. I used them for one nappy change and that is it (my daughter only has nappies at night time) and went straight to the shops in the morning for good old Pampers. I just did not like the idea of using something so cheap on my daughter's delicate skin. The wipes do the job for wet bums, but I do not think they would be wet enough to use for messy bums or messy hands - not without a hell of a lot of scrubbing which I would never do as it would cause a rash and no doubt make my daughter uncomfortable.
If in an absolute emergency, these would suffice but I would not want to use them on a regular basis. I'm not a brand snob, but if it isn't gentle enough to be used to remove eye make up, it isn't gentle enough for my daughter's bum let alone a newborn.
I have a two year old monster, one of those monsters that likes removing snails from shells, bringing me presents like dog poo and anything else that is absolutely disgusting, my monster definately comes from the puppy dogs tails side of the nursery rhyme. This explains my need for baby wipes and lots of them. A way to remove the offending item and dispose of it quickly preferably without having to come in to contact with it.
I go through hundreds of baby wipes a week, I use the bigger brands for sensitive areas like dirty bottoms and faces but when it comes to snail guts on hands and feet and biro on my walls or yogurt on the carpet I generally grab a pack of smart price baby wipes.
The wipes come in very basic green and white packet, you get 80 wipes per pack and they cost in the region of 36p. The wipes are quite small compared to the big name brands and are a bit thinner although they are still pretty strong. You can scrub yogurt from the carpet without it disintegrating! The wipes are pretty moist so wet enough to clean grubby monsters. They are also fragrance free, I sometimes find that although wipes say fragrance free they can still be quite perfumed, these however are definately odourless.
Dont be put off by the basics ranges, I find that as they are no frills and not out there to impress people that they can be perfectly functional, sometimes the ingredients they put in to make things look pretty are the things that cause problems ie perfumes colours preservatives etc most of the basic ranges do not contain these.
The only draw back I have found with these wipes is that even though they have a resealable packet they can dry out really quickly.
Give them a try I have baby wipes in every room in the car in my handbag etc etc etc 36p is not a lot to lose, if you do not like the Asda have a satisfaction guarantee they refund in full if you are not 100% happy.
These smart price babywipes are priced at 36pence for 80wipes. I personally wouldnt want to risk these on baby's bottom but if like me you use 70% of wipes on hands and faces after mealtimes these are great.
I suddenly realised i was going through so many wipes using them on hands and faces so thought i would give these ago as it makes sense given i was paying around a pound a pack (when on offer) for branded 60ish in a pack. So now for just over a pound i can get 240 wipes in stead of 60.
The packaging as you would expect is the usual smartprice packet with white and green. The Wipes have a resealable basic sticky label over the opening and even though basic it keeps the wipes moist. The wipes are really easy to take from the pack and are very moist although not too much. They are smaller slightly than branded wipes and thinner. In being thinner they are easier to wipe little fingers with. They are stretchy without tearing. They are very slightly fragranced a baby wipe smell.
I have used these twice on my daughters bottom when caught short and she has been fine with them. Using them at most mealtimes i have not seen any effect on my daughter except clean hands at a more affordable price.
I will definately be buying these in the future for hands and faces. Even if you dont have kids they are ideal to keep in the car at the price
I've had comments that the car looks like it's enjoyed a respray this week, the windows are shiny like new, the tar spots removed, dash grime now gone and looking like new plastic.... and all for 9p..... how?
Step 1: Hose and sponge wash the car down in the usual fashion:
Step 2: Pop to Asda
Step 3: Find the baby care section
Step 4: Purchase a pack of Smart-Price baby wipes for just 18p (prices vary, this was a now expired offer!!!)
Step 5: Apply finger pressure to remove tar spots using one sheet at a time, go over the car in a systematic fashion
You'll use half the pack for a total inside out job..... 1/2 * £0.18 = £0.09
The rest can stay in the door pocket for a fragrance free freshen up of the dashboard and clocks as required...... or even for changing nappies .
Never has a car been so pampered.
