When it comes to buying Jayden's nappies and so on I have never been impressed with Huggies nappies, however I am happy to use their wipes when it comes to changing Jayden's nappy. I'm not particularly loyal to a particular brand and a while ago I used Huggies Natural Care Aloe Wipes as I was sure I would be pleased with the results.
The Huggies Natural Care Aloe Wipes come in a light green plastic packet, at the top of the packet on the front is the brand Huggies written in large white bubble writing with the words Natural Care written underneath in green writing, the fragrance Aloe with Vitamin E, the rest of the front of the packet is taken up with a picture of a baby.
There is a clear strip on the front of the packet which peels back and allows you to remove the wipes from the packet, this is re-sealable so that the wipes do not dry out. On the back of the packaging is all of the relevant product information about the wipes, this is clearly written and easy to follow.
Huggies Natural Care Aloe Wipes appearance wise look just like any other baby wipes, they are rectangle shaped and made from a soft white material. When you remove the wipes from the packet you can smell the aloe vera on the wipes, this is a mild and delicate fragrance which lingers on your baby's skin without being too over powering.
The wipes have just the right amount of moisture on them, I have tried other wipes in the past which have either been too dry or so wet that you feel you have to dry your baby's skin after use, this is not the case with these wipes, there is enough moisture to clean your baby's skin without leaving it too wet. The aloe vera and vitamin E in these wipes is said to help care for and protect your baby's skin from nappy rash in a natural way.
These wipes are promoted as being ideal for use when changing your baby's nappy, which is what we mainly used ours for, however they are also useful for wiping and cleaning your baby's hands and face when out and about, the wipes will quickly and easily clean your baby's hands and face whilst at the same time being gentle on their skin. If we went out for the day I would frequently use these wipes on Jayden's hands and face especially after meals. They are also ideal for all of the family, again if you are out for the day and want to clean your hands these wipes are ideal and useful to have nearby.
Price and Availability
Huggies Natural Care Aloe Wipes are available from most supermarkets as well as chemists and stores such as Boots and Superdrug. We purchased our packet of 64 wipes from Tesco and they cost £2.49, personally I think this is a fair price for these wipes, although there are other brands which are cheaper. Personally I prefer to buy my baby wipes when they are on offer and tend to stock up on them, when I purchased mine Tesco had a buy 1 get 2 free offer on so I purchased quite a few packets of these whilst they were on this offer.
I would definitely recommend the Huggies Natural Care Aloe Wipes, they are so much better than the nappies by this brand. The wipes successfully cleanse Jayden's skin and are gentle and cause no irritation. I particularly like the fragrance of these wipes, it is light and fresh and of just the right strength, the wipes do not leave your baby's skin too wet, but contain just the right moisture to clean effectively.
The wipes when full price are within keeping of this type of product, but you can get some good offers on them if you shop around. Overall I would recommend this product and would purchase these wipes again in the future, especially if they are on offer.
I have a 2 year old little girl so over the last 2 years I have tried all of the branded products for babies and buggies natural care wipes are no exception. On the front of the wipes Huggins claims that their wipes contain aloe and vitamin e and that they also prevent the causes of nappy rash. I have plenty to say on this product unfortunately there's more bad than good to say for me.
This pack is a standard pastic rectangle that all wipes come in with the see through top flap the you can access the wipes through. I did notice that this flap was very sticky so I was able to reseal the wipes everytime I used them. This pack contains 64 wipes which is one of the more stocked up oaks available at the moment as like everything the amount is slowly going down. The pack itself is a different shades of lime green which instantly stood out on the shelf to me and made me take a close look. I also likes the fact that straight away you notice that it's natural care and helps prevent nappy rash. The wipe packet has pictures showing what you can use these for which includes a cute looking bum face and hands.
When opening the packet I'm pretty sure I could smell cucumber which I must say has to be my favourite wet wipe fragrance my far and I have to admite I do sometimes open the pack just for a little wiff. The texture of Huggins natural care is soft but I have to say it reminds me of a wet paper towel.
The use of the wipe:
Now this is where it gets really disappointing for me in my opinion they just don't work. Now this could just be me because they do seem to be very popular but this is not something I was from a wipe. The paper towel texture of this wipe sticks to my little ones skin and makes it impossible to clean a smelly bum. They also rip! Hence the one wipe wipe. This for me is a deal clencher a wipe ripping does not help when your pinning down a child with one hand and trying to release wipes and clean at the same time. And that another this trying to separate these wipes is not easy! They all seem to be very pressed together and I have noticed the wipes have not been cut apart properly and in some cases 5 follow each ther out. I have found that these are great for cleaning my laminate floor as they do t grip. But as for any part of my child no they dont work.
Price and availability:
These can be bought from online,any supermarket, shops such as boots, superdrug, wilkinsons and any where else stocking baby products. Te price can vary from £1.22 to £2.50 depending on offers
The verdict: they smell amazing and clean my floor great but they are a baby wipe and I can't actually clean my baby with them so I'm going to give these a 2 out of 5 and I think I'm being generouse. As for the no nappy rash claim I can not answer as I have not been able to use them regularly enough to know this.
- Why I Bought -
Huggies wipes aren't my favourite but if I see a good offer I tend to buy them anyway. I picked up a few packs of the Natural Care wipes when they were 3 for the price of 1 in Tesco a few months ago.
- The Packaging -
The wipes come in a light green packet which complements the aloe ingredient nicely. The packet displays the Huggies brand, name of the wipes and states that they contain aloe and vitamin E. There is also a photo of an adorable baby on the front and all the usual information on the back. There is a plastic sticker to reseal the pack and keep the wipes moist. I find it difficult to remove the wipes from the pack because they rip very easily and all the wipes stick together so you end up with ten wipes in one go. This is the main down side to these wipes.
- The Wipes -
You get 64 wipes in a pack which is a fairly standard amount for baby wipes. The wipes are white and have a teddy bear design. They smell divine which gives them an advantage over the Huggies Pure wipes which are otherwise very similar. You can smell the aloe vera which is really pleasant and fresh. They are nicely moist but not too wet. They are really thick and soft which is good but as I have already said they rip very easily. They have no stretch to them at all and you can easily poke a hole in them, very unpleasant while wiping a dirty bottom! Because of this my husband complains when I buy these. They clean faces and bottoms well and don't cause irritation to the skin so the aloe is doing its job there. Overall I do like the wipe, especially the smell but the ripping is very irritating.
- Price and Availability -
The standard price for these wipes is £2.59 which I think is very overpriced. I would never pay this much for them and I tend to only buy them when I see the 3 for 1 deals in Tesco and Sainsbury's. They are available from Boots, Superdrug and most supermarkets.
- Would I Recommend? -
I'm not sure I would recommend these wipes but they are worth a try if you see the 3 for 1 offer. I love the smell and I like how thick, soft and moist they are but they rip way too easily which is irritating and impractical when changing nappies.
My little grandaughter is almost months old now and how the time is passing so quickly. Since she has been born I have been buying lots of different brands of baby wipes for both my daughter to help her a little and for myself to use at my home for both my grandchildren. I like to buy ones that are on special offer because it saves me lots of money and these one I did buy on offer. It makes sense to buy on offer because it can save pounds if you use a lot of wipes.
They come in a plastic packet which can be opened via plastic strip. The strip can be easily opened and then just pressed back down after taking the wipes from the packet. The strip have a good seal and it does seal back into place nicely after these wipes have been taken from the packet and they do keep nice and moist once the strip is pressed back down again.
There are 64 wipes in the pack, quite a lot for the price I paid of just £1 on offer. They are a rectangle shape and each wipe measures approximately 8 inches x 6 inches and so a good size. They are quite strong and thick wipes too and because they are such a strong wipe it means that they do not tear while using them as some tend to do. These ones are perfectly fine. The texture is really soft and certainly not rough, they are also super to hold in the hands quite comfortably. Because they are not flimsy wipes it means I can get a good grip on them to wipe over the skin with ease and not to keep dropping them as I have found with some other brands that I have bought. These cause no problems at all.
They are white in colour and have very nice teddy bear design on the wipe, quite cute in my opinion to add a nice design to a wipe and make a change than just a plain looking one. They are very moist and wet but not so much that the moisture drips from the wipe.
These remove all traces of dirt from my little grandaughter's bottom with very little rubbing. It means that I do not have to use a lot of wipes to remove the dirt and more often than not 2 wipes is quite enough to do the job nicely. They do not irritate her bottom at all or leave her with a rash because they contain Aloe Vera and Vitamin E. These ingredients help prevent nappy rash. They have no smell and so they are just nice wipes that clean very well in my opinion. They do glide across the skin nicely and little effort is needed to cleanse the skin. They leave the skin nice and soft and very smooth.
I have used these wipes myself for removing make up many times. They just remove make up with very little rubbing, they just dissolve the dirt very well. I have also used them to clean my little grandson's hands when he has been eating chocolate or sticky foods and they have cleaned his hands very well. I have used them to clean door handles many times because I think these kind of wipes are good for cleaning around the home too. They are quite versatile ones in my opinion.
Every time the strip is pulled back, each wipe is as moist as from first opening the packet and for this reason these wipes are excellent value for money and extremely good quality in my opinion.
I am very happy with the way these clean the skin and I highly do recommend them to anyone to give them a go. Even if you do not have any children these wipes are good for cleaning adults hands too and for the price on offer, they are a bargain and the amount in the packet can last for a good while for adults. For parents the amount is fabulous because it means because they are such good quality, they last a little longer.
Look out for these on offer as I do not think you would be disappointed with these ones and I will continue to buy them in the future because they give me all the results that I expect from a branded wipe.
I absolutely love these wipes.
Also on Ciao under my username Pinky50.
I give these 5 stars.
Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.
I am mummy to a two year old monster so I consider myself to be very close to expert when it comes to baby wipes, If there is a brand out there, I have tried it. I tend to buy what ever is on offer at the time, I generally only pay around a pound a pack.
Huggies baby wipes are on offer in sainsburys at the moment buy one get two free, if there is anything I love more than buy one get one free it is to get two free. Definately an offer not to be sniffed at, £2.49 for three packs.
I chose the natural care with aloe vera and vitamin E variety, I use aloe vera for a lot of skin issues and know vitamin E is good for skin so these were my first choice. The packets contain 64 wipes, and states that they help prevent the causes of nappy rash naturally, also they are alcohol free and made with natural fibres. The packet has the usual peel back resealable sticker, you easily pull the wipes through as they are folded to follow each other. The packet reseals to stop the wipes drying out.
The wipes themselves are a good size and really thick, more like a fabric than paper, they are really soft and have a teddy bear print in them, they smell lovely, like a fruity melon fresh smell, I really like this fragrance it hides nasty smells but is not too strong, definately one of my favourite baby wipes fragrances.
They clean dirty bottoms very efficiently you really dont need many of these wipes so they do seem to last longer. Also handy for sticky fingers and grubby faces. .I have been known to clan marks from the carpet with them, dust the tv cabinet with them and clean my whole sofa with them so they are indeed very handy!
I am a very busy mum and tend to have a packet of wipes on pretty much every surface.
Most importantly they are really gentle on my monsters skin and leaveit feeling soft and smelling lovely and fresh.
These are by far my favourite of all the baby wipes I have used, I would recommend them to any busy mum, ideal for......well pretty much everything and every one.
Available in most supermarkets etc at £2.49 a pack but I generally stock up on offers around a pound a pack.
I've never bought Huggies wet baby wipes before mainly because I can buy much cheaper wipes for what I usually use them for, which is wiping my hands and face. I decided to buy these though as whilst in Sainsbury's they had them on a very good offer, buy 1 get 2 free! This was an offer I couldn't refuse!
--- The Package ---
The packs come in the usual plastic resealable wrapper that most wet wipes comes in. The pack contains 64 wet wipes and is made completely of plastic. The pack measures 23cm x 11cm x 6cm in size which is quite bulky compared to other wet wipe packs I have had.
The pack is a light green all over with a bit of white. On the front there is picture of a baby along side the Huggies logo and the product name. This makes the pack very noticeable when you are looking on the shelves. The rear of the pack has information about the wipes, there uses and what they are made of.
--- The Wipes ---
The pack is opened by peeling back the see through label on the front which when peeled back opens a hole that is 5cm x 3cm in size. This hole is big and easy enough to access the wipes with ease that come out easily one by one.
With some cheaper wipes, you pull one wipe out and another 5 come with it. These are different as when you pull one wipe, you only get one wipe out. The first noticeable thing about the wipes is how moist and soft they are. As they are designed for babies this is really good as they don't feel like they could be harsh on your skin.
Once you have pulled out the wipe you then notice the scent of the wipes which is quite strong and noticeable. The wipes are meant to contain Aloe Vera and Vitamin E which is what will account for the really nice scent to them.
Each wipe is 19cm x 15cm and is made from quick and soft natural fibres. The wipes are white in colour with teddy bears and paw prints imprinted onto the wipes to make them aesthetically pleasing.
I use these wipes on my hands and face to keep me clean and keeping my face clean to help prevent spots. I find that the combination of Aloe Vera and Vitamin E really helps to clean my skin, leave it feeling fresh and reduce the visibility of spots. I could envisage that these would be really good to use on babies skin as they are soft and soothing to the skin. It also says it is meant to good for preventing the causes of nappy rash naturally.
--- Where to Buy ---
These can be bought from any major supermarket or shop, however I would recommend going to Sainbury's as soon as possible (as of 16th July 2011) as they are on Buy one Get Two free with one pack costing about £2.
--- The Verdict ---
These have to be one of the better packs of wet wipes I have used as they are soft, comfortable, smell nice and are great for the skin. It shows that it is worth paying a bit extra for quality wipes. I am therefore going to give these wipes 5/5 as they are well worth the money and if you can get the deal that I got then you are getting a real bargain.
Thanks for reading.

==Huggies Natural Care Baby Wipes==
Seeing as Jack is coming up for 4 in June this year I don't buy as many baby wipes as I once did (thankfully) but we do still have a pack in the bathroom to clean up any mess on his face and fingers and always to give him an extra clean up with other bits when he needs it. I tend to buy a pack every three weeks or so and I always opt for a cheap pack whether it be a brand name or a shops own brand, as long as it is under £1.
=Price and Availability==
I have seen these wipes in a few different shops and they are usually well over £1 which is why I have never bought them up to now. They are though, more often than not, on some sort of special offer somewhere and can either be found on a buy one get one free or a half price deal. I think these particular wipes are relatively new to the Huggies range as they were not something that I would come across when I was buying a lot of wipes when Jack was smaller.
I picked this pack up from Poundland so they cost me £1 of course which is just about right and at the time they were the best ones that seemed to be on the shelf other than a Pampers type that I don't really like.
The wipes claim to have "natural care" with aloe and vitamin E added into them and say that the wipes help prevent the causes of nappy rash naturally. Of course seeing as Jack doesn't wear nappies any more and we have been really using these only for faces and fingers I can't really comment on the affects these wipes have on small bums.
The fragrance they have though is quite noticeable and I don't think I used anything that was quite so perfumed on Jacks little bottom especially if he was suffering from nappy rash! AS it stands though I don't mind the aroma that these wipes have and the smell does linger somewhat which is no bad thing.
The wipes are thick in texture and they are not excessively wet such as some wipes you can get are. They have a pattern of a teddy bear etched into them and are of a fairly good size in order to clean up sticky fingers of dirty faces! You get 64 of the wipes in a pack and considering we use a fair amount per day this pack has seemed to lasted us ages and I have still got a fair few left in the pack.
I am not really sure other than the main ingredients listed on the front what else is in these wipes as there isn't a list on the pack. I suspect that the fact that have the vitamin E in and the aloe that they are more caring to the skin and this is why Huggies are calling them natural.
Overall I have to say that these wipes are okay. I can't say I would be buying them on a regular basis and they are nothing that I would actively seek out to buy. I think they are best used for mucky faces and fingers as I wouldn't much fancy using these on a small babies bum to clear off a bum of baby poo as I really don't think that they would be up to much. I think for the price I paid I can't really complain and they have done a fair job at removing the chocolate spread encrusted on to Jacks face on more than one occasion.
I feel that a bog standard score of 3 out of 5 is in order here and not really a recommendation for them as considering them are meant to be wipes for babies I can't see them being up tot he job.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
As these are currently on offer at £1 a pack in Asda I have purchased a couple of packs to give them a try as I don't see any reason that they are more expensive than the other branded wipes, they usually retail at £2.59 per packet.
The packaging around the wipes is thin pliable plastic which feels good quality to say it is simply housing baby wipes, it is pale green in colour and has a picture of a beautiful little baby on the front. The packaging states Huggies natural care contains aloe and vitamin E and claim that they help to prevent the causes of nappy rash naturally. On the back of the pack there are little cartoon like pictures to indicate that the wipes can be used for bums, faces and hands, and it tells you these are produced by Kimberly Clark. There are contact details in so many different languages you go crossed eyed trying to look at them and the claim about preventing nappy rash in numerous different languages too and also claims that the wipes are made with natural fibres. On opening the packet the pull back sticky section was that strong that when I pulled hard enough to get them open the packet actually ripped so I am hoping that this doesn't mean the wipes will dry out before I use the full packet.
When you open the packet you can smell the wipes, I think they smell like cucumber and nature, the smell is really nice and isn't too strong. The wipes are easy to pull out of the packet although you do sometimes find that two come out together and they are that thick that for most jobs only one is required so you have to replace the other, this can be a bit of a pain when only one hand is available so I make sure I get the wipes ready before the nappy change. The wipes are embossed with little teddy bears and paw prints, there are even three different poses of the teddy bear although this doesn't make any difference to the performance of the wipe so does make you question how much extra is put on each packet for having this detail. The wipes are of a standard size like any other and there are 64 in a pack but this is good compared to the cheaper packs that hold around 80 as even with a dirty nappy you still generally only need one wipe. The wipes have enough moisture to do the job but I haven't reached the bottom of the packet so can't say whether they are too wet when you reach them or not.
I have used these wipes for a couple of days now and there has been no adverse reaction to them, my daughter generally doesn't get nappy rash as such just a little redness and there has been no redness in the time I have been using them. The wipes do not rip and are very strong for the job and when using them on my daughter face it was left nice and soft.
These are not worth paying £2.59 for considering they go in the bin but then personally I wouldn't pay this price no matter how good they were as finances just would not allow it. I will be stocking up on these whilst they are £1 a pack as they are really nice wipes and I would certainly recommend them.
When I was expectig my baby, one thing that I stocked up on was baby wipes - so much so that I have developed a random obssession where if I have less than ten packs in my cupboard I have a bit of a panic!!! I automatically started buying Johnsons wipes, mainly due to absoutely loving the smell, but after using them for a couple of days I really wasn't keen so I tried Huggies, and wow, what a difference!
I used the Huggies pure wipes for the first time and just found them to be perfect, and when I was on my next shop I bought the Natural Care wipes and these have now become the only ones I use!
Huggies Natural Care Wipes come in a red and green packet with a picture of a baby on the front. The Huggies logo is showin in large white letters just underneath the baby, and there is a green teardrop with Vit e inside, showing Aloe+ Vitamin E. The picture and logo feature on the top and front side of the packet, making it easy to distinguish and find on the shelf in the supermarket. To get the wipes out, there is a self adhesive label covering a hole in which the wipes come out. I have found that this stays sticky throughout the whole time of using the packet which is important or the wipes would possibly dry out.
Aqua, Aloe, Barbadensis Extract, Tochopheryl Acetate, Potassium Laureth Phospahte, Glycerin, Polysorbate 20, Tetrasodium, EDTA, Methylisothisazolinone, Methylparaben, Malic Acid, Parfum.
The smell of these wipes is just lovely, I would describe it as a kind of melon fragrance although others may describe it as something different. My mum cannot stand the smell of them at all, and curses me when she is putting my daughter to bed when i'm working as she has to use them! The feel of these wipes is great too, they are thick and very soft and hold the moisture extremely well. When changing my daughters nappy I have found that one wipe is often sufficient whereas with other wipes I have had to use several.
When using the wipes, sometimes they do stick together so you can end up getting a couple out at a time, but this is easily avoided by simply holding the second wipe down when pulling one out.
The cost of a packet of the natural care wipes is around £2.00 - £2.50, however they are often on offer which is when I stock up. Currently at Asda they are on offer in packs of 4 and you can buy two packs of 4 for £8.00 which is a great price in my opinion. Also, in my local discount store they are regularly on sale for just a pound so I always pick up a couple of packets. In every packet there are 64 wipes which is a good amount and should last a while.
My daughter has very sensitive skin but these wipes haven't irritated it in the slightest so I am more than happy with them and would recommend them to every mum and dad out there, they are just great. I have never had a single problem with these baby wipes, and as you can tell I only have positive things to say about them!
I have used these baby wipes for other things rather than just using them for changing my daughters nappies, they are fab for cleaning also! I have found them to be really good for an alternative to dusting as polish irritates me so when I found they were good for dusting too it was a double bonus!
I have to give these wipes a full five out of five stars as I really think they are fantastic! The smell, quality and all the uses are just great and I can't fault them in the slightest!! I would recommend these to any parent as in my opinion there isn't better on the market!
Thank you for reading my review :)
I bought these for my son after he had a particulary nasty case of nappy rash. Now these are the only wipes we use, as I liked them so much.
You can normally buy these on offer at tesco, usually half price or buy one get one free, so they are normally about £1- 1.20 and I stock up on them during the offer period, so I find they are not any more expensive than other brands.
The things I like about these wipes-
They are thick and one wipe normally does far, far more than about 3 of the cheaper kind.
They smell really nice and the smell is not over powering or perfumed.
I like the fact that they have the aloe and vitamin e included in them. I have no idea if medically this makes any difference, but it's nice to think my son's bum is being cared for with these extra ingredients. He has had only one other case of nappy rash since using them and it cleared up within a few days.
The things I don't like about these wipes-
It's often quite hard to get them out! This is awful when you've got a wriggling toddler with a poopey bum and only one hand to get the wipes with.
You get 64 in a pack, so one more than with the pampers equivalent wipes.
I am a mum to 3 small children so as you can imagine I go through a stack of baby wipes on a weekly basis. When my son was a baby I found that I could use any brand of baby wipes but unfortunatley both my daughters are prone to nappy rash.
Whilst out shopping I needed to purchase some wipes and my usual brand had sold out so I decided to buy these Huggies natural care baby wipes with aloe vera. I chose these as they claimed to help prevent the causes of nappy rash naturally.
This packet cost £1.30 from the Co-Op and contains 64 wipes.
The wipes are quilted and have teddy bears imprinted on them. They feel quite thick to touch and the smell of aloe vera is lovely. They are also alchol free.
My 5 month daughter decided to fill her nappy just as I had put her a clean one on (typical). So out came the clean nappy and the wipes. I found that because the wipes are quilted they seemed to remove alot of the mess with ease. The wipes do tend to stick together which makes life a little difficult when in the middle of changing your baby (you could do with an extra set of hands just for the wipes). I dont normally buy fragranced wipes but these do have a subtle fragrance and leave baby smelling clean and fresh. A few days later after continually using these wipes my daughter has no signs of nappy rash at all which is suprising as she normally suffers when using different wipes. (The brand I use are quite hard to find and occasionally I do run out its not that I like using different varities on her).
The only other disadvantage to these wipes is that they only have a sticky label over the hole to keep them moist. I tend to prefer the wipes that have a lid on the packet.
Although I like these wipes and they did prevent nappy rash I dont think that I will be purchasing these as my usual brand as I find that my regular wipes are slightly better.
Baby products are such a competative market - even for a simple thing like baby wipes - therefore I got these wipes a few times for free trying to persuade me to change to them perminately.
The price is firstly of course more than the own brand product. But is it worth it..? Well simply not for us.
The packaging certainly is attractive and as baby wipes of course they worked. However going through any potential advatage and why I didn't find this necessary.
There was sufficient wipes in the pack certainly. But so much so that when you toook out each qipe a whole pile came with it. I'd far father have had a pack with less wipes that you don't end up with a big clump in your hand You only need one to wipe at a time. I can't help but think that way you go though far more wiptes this way therefore needing to buy more often..
Of course they performed well as wipes; they were moist with a non-offensive fragrance and certainly did the job. Each was pretty thick as a wipe - although I'm not sure this was actually necessary.
Overall, I have to say we were not even enticed to use these wipes when they were free! Too many came out at once and they didn't outperform own-branded supermarket wipes. For the longterm (thousands) of wipes we'll end up buying own brand wipes were just as good.
Although these wipes are expensive (around £3 for a pack of 64) they are regularly to be found in the buy one get one free offers when i bulk buy around 10 packs. I have tried every wipe available with 3 children under 5 and these are my absolute favourite, although i would never buy them full price. When i cannot source them B1G1F i resort to buying tesco own brand wipes.
What makes these wipes such good value for money is that at each nappy change, be it a wee or a poo, you only need 1 wipe (max 2 if really mucky) - they are large and thick with perfect amounts of moisture in each wipe. The smell is natural and not overly perfumed and false like so many of the other brands and they have aloe vera in to protect babies bottoms. I have never had probs with nappy rash with all 3 of my children and these leave their bottoms soft and silky.
I have used huggies through their evolution and must admit i do not like this pack design as the tab comes off and they can dry out. The fact that they are so thick and large does go quite a way to protecting them from drying out though and there is no real disadvantage to using this pack design for these wipes. The tear off pieces are easy to break as well!
I did prefer the older designed pack (around 5 years ago) with the resealable top.
We have two daughters who are 3 and 1 so we go through a lot of baby wipes one way or another! Usually I stick with Asda or Tesco own brand wipes as I feel that they are really good wipes and definitely good value for money. However, we ran out last week and I happened to be near Superdrug so I popped in to buy a couple of packs to keep us going til I was next at a supermarket. The Huggies Natural Care wipes were on offer so they actually worked out cheaper than the Superdrug own brand ones that I would have normally gone for so thought I'd give them a try. I wish I hadn't...
So what are they? Huggies are a very well known and very reputable brand of baby products. They manufacture various types of nappies and wipes. The Huggies Natural Care wipes come in a pack of 64 for around £2-£2.50 per pack. The packaging is very appealing with a picture of a cute baby on the front and a pleasant green and dark red design.
What's good? The wipes contain Aloe Vera and vitamin E which should help to care for your baby's delicate skin and help to heal any nappy rash that develops. The wipes also smell gorgeous - very fresh and not perfumey at all. Although expensive compared to own brand wipes, these wipes appear to be on offer (BOGOF or 3 for 2) quite frequently so if you liked them then you could get some bargains.
What's bad? I hated these wipes!! They're nice and thick but they're very papery and seem to rip really easily. They're very moist too but this just seems to make them more prone to ripping. They are soft and the quilting seems to be quite gentle on little one's skin but I seemed to end up using far more wipes than I normally would use! This is especially annoying as the wipes are more expensive than my usual ones in the first place!!
Verdict? They smell nice and have some good points like the Aloe Vera but over all I really don't like these wipes. They just rip too easily and I ended up using so many more than usual. The price is also a put off. If I end up in the same situation again and was going to be buying branded wipes I'd probably go for the Johnson's ones instead as I know these wont rip! But I think in general I'll be sticking with Asda's and Tesco's!
Gentle cleaning for gentle skin.
