These are quite unusual baby wipes - unlike any of the others I''ve tried. They feel very much like a quality wipe, contain a lot of fluid, and have a very neutral and inoffensive smell. From the point of view of avoiding chemicals on a baby''s skin, they probably aren''t too bad.
The main disadvantage is that it''s almost impossible to take one or two from the packet. They stick together in clumps and often come out ten or fifteen at a time, then you have to try to separate them which is fiddly and inconvenient with a small child or baby waiting to be changed. I would avoid taking them out for the day if I was going to have to change a child in a changing room etc. They are also quite ''wet'' so it''s always necessary to dry the child, and your hands, with dry tissue afterwards. When you''re trying to avoid too much mess and stuff to take with you, this isn''t great.
Probably because they contain so much fluid already, they aren''t very absorbent. They are good for removing poo and for wiping urine residue from a child but not great if you have a very runny poo to contend with - as they just don''t absorb very well.
To be honest, these are wipes I get if I see a very good offer and I know I''m going to be using them at home. I would NEVER use them on newborns - because their poo is too runny, and water and cotton wool is better for the skin.
I have two children, a 3 year old and a 20 month old so we go through a lot of wipes in our house and would often just buy whatever was on offer. Even before either of my babies were born I would often buy items such as wipes to stock up while they were on offer. Usually the only wipes that were on offer were these huggies wipes, buy one get two free and similar kind of offers. There's a reason these are always on offer.... it's the only way people will buy them!!
Firstly the packing is OK and quite appealing. It is quite simple packaging with neutral colours which gives the impression they are gentle and nice to skin. There is a nice cute picture of a baby on the front too. To open the wipes there is a clear sticker that you pull back to reveal the opening and it can be resealed a few times after opening but quickly looses it stickiness.
USING THE WIPES
Pulling the wipes out of the pack is not the easiest to do compared to other brands of wipes. They are all very tightly stuck together and it's very difficult to even start to get one out (especially if you're holding down a stubborn toddler who doesn't want his nappy changed!!)
When you get hold of one it just seams to tear. They are so thick but low quality that they just rip completely. Not what I want from wipes!
The smell of the wipes is not unpleasent but I can't say its a nice smell either. There's something about tthe smell of these wipes that is just not that nice and not what I would describe as 'pure ' like huggies do. Other brands I've used smell much nicer and in my opinion my babies smell much cleaner and fresher after using them unlike after using huggies.
Huggies claim their wipes are pure and just as gentle as using pure water and cotton wool. I have to say that they are actually quite gentle on babies skin. Both my children have quite sensitive skin and never reacted badly when I used these on them, so i will say that they are as gentle as they claim.
I like to buy wipes that are on offer but after using huggies I draw the line at these. The only good thing I would say is that they are gentle on the skin. For some they may be OK but I just can't seem to get on with them. In my opinion Tesco ultra soft wipes and asda little angel wipes beat these in every way and are very good value too. I would recommend using either of these over huggies any day.
2/5 for me, thank you for reading, I hope my review has been useful

I first came across these nappies in the Huggies starter kit boxes that asda used to sell in their baby event for £3. That box contained a small pack of newborn nappies, a packet of these Huggies pure wipes and a small 100% cotton baby hat. I bought a few boxes before she was born as all my research had convinced me these were the best all round wipes and thankfully when she was born these wipes were perfect for her.
Each pack contains 64 wipes amd is simply opened by unpeeling the resealabale sticker lid. In my experience though you may have wastage of at least one wipe per packet as upon opening it can be tricky to get the first wipe out. However once you've managed the first one the rest are usually no problem. The reason they can be hard to get out of the packet is the fact these wipes are thicker than any other brand and also much tougher in consistency. I love the feel of these wipes, they are like a moist tissue and I imagine they would feel nice to babies when used on their skin.
At times when I have been caught out I have resorting to buying other brands which were cheaper or on offer and have always regretted it. Other wipes have reddened my daughters skin and in one case led to nappy rash so now I will use nothing else on her skin.
The retail price of these wipes is £2.59 but I have never paid this much for them. You can regularly get them on offer for £1 a pack, or at the full price on a buy one get two free offer.
Living in a house with 3 messy men (2 of which are under 5) we go through A LOT of wipes.
When it comes to baby wipes I'm not brand loyal but will just buy whichever is on offer, the cheapest or which is in stock at the time. We bought these from Tesco on our weekly shop for 99p but they usually retail at about £1.60 per pack.
They came in a cream pack with a picture of a rather cute little baby on the front and claim to be as "gentle as cotton wool and water". There's 64 wipes per pack which will last us about 4 days. There is also nothing on the pack about being suitable for newborns but I prefer to use cotton wool ad water for the first month on tiny bums anyway.
The wipes themselves are about the right "wetness" not as dry as a towel but not dripping wet either. They smell quite chemically which I don't like and have little pictures of teddy bears on them (nice touch). To me huggies wipes feel different to most other wipes as the tear very easily and almost feel like thick wet paper. When the pack is left open to they do dry out very quickly but there is a peel back lid on the wipes so I find they stay moist with the lid covering them.
Baby wipes are great to have around the house and I use them to clean lots of different things but the most use they have is messy hands after meal times and nappy changes. Now for the not so nice part. My youngest is still in nappies and has a lot of not so nice poopy ones and I find these do take 1 or 2 more to clean his bum than other brands, he doesn't really have delicate skin but these wipes have never irritated him. As for messy hands and faces they do a great job of getting orange spag bol stains of faces and deep blue paint from under nails.
Other things I use these for are wiping over dirty shoes, mopping spills up on the sofa and floors, cleaning up after arts and crafts, cleaning the inside of the car, cleaning mucky fingerprints off my phone and many other things. They really are very handy to have around the house and never fail to let me down.
These are fairly good wipes but I do not like the fact they tear so easily. But they leave hands clean and bums soft so they can't be all that bad.
After recently having a baby girl i am slightly fussy about what i put onto her skin. Her skin is so delicate and like me she is prone to sensitivity, so i like to make sure the products i use on her don't aggrivate this. Having tried numerous different brand wipes and being dissapointed (and even angry at how they made my girl sore) i was recommended these wipes. I have not looked back since.
My baby has had nappy rash a few times, i tried everything to prevent this and always applied a barrier cream to her skin. One day it was particularly bad and she was wincing in pain when i wiped her, it broke my heart seeing her like this and i decided there and then to stop using wipes and just use plain cotton wool and boiled cooled water on her instead, this however was time consuming and also practially impossible to do whilst we were out and about.
Talking to another mum one day about this she suggested i use these Huggies pure wipes, she said she uses them on her baby and has never had any problems. Initally i was reluctant to take her up on her word as i bought nappies from Huggies when i was pregnant and i found them utterly rubbish! However, as they were £1 in Asda, and are the cheapest of the premium brands wipes i decided to purchase them.
I am so glad i did, these wipes really do seem like they are as pure as water, no perfumed chemical smell to them and ever since i have started using them my girl has not had one bout of nappy rash. Coincidence? I am not so sure. One notable thing about them is they are wet enough that you don't have to use many and one gentle sweep is enough, rather than having to rub at her skin with wipes that dried up so quickly that i had to use 20 of them at a time. Also, the packaging is of good quality and you can seal them back up and know they are protected. Countless times i have used wipes where the seal kept coming off and became unsticky, thus drying up the wipes making them unusable. The wipes are easy to remove from the packet and you don't get loads of them coming out at the same time, just the one you need.
I have been using these a few months now and i really will not use anything else. I now like to stock up and buy the bulk packs, 12 packs of wipes for £10 is an amazing price. With 64 wipes in each pack that is 768 wipes, that should last a fair time even if you have a baby like mine that likes to fill her nappy atleast 3 times a day!
I really would recommend these wipes if your baby is prone to soreness and rashes, they will give you peace of mind knowing your little one will not be in any discomfort. And at that price, even better.
Thanks for reading:)
I always want to use the mildest toiletries on my daughters skin, especially in her extra delicate nappy area. At home I usually wip eher up with cotton wool and water - pretty much as natural a clean as you can get - but this is not really a practical option when out and about. I heard a lot of good reports about Huggies Pure and decided to give them a go.
As far as I am aware, they are the closest wipe to cotton wool and water, this is even in their advertising. There is no alcohol, fragrance or unnessecary additives.
As a wipe, each individual one is a good thickness which I find most important. Wet wipes are quite expensive for what they are to me, and I like to be able to fold the wipe over and use it for a few wipes in one go. With cheaper brands and even Pampers I find it's one wipe per wipe, whereas I can get three or four wipes out of a Huggies Pure. Obviously I don't even keep them and save them for the next nappy change but if you're wiping up a big poo, you can still use one or maybe two wipes, instead of five or six cheaper ones!
The wipes have a pleasant smell although there is no added fragrance and they are luxuriously soft with a little teddy bear pattern. They are very kind to my daughter's skin, I have never seen any kind of rash or irritance relating to them.
They are a little more expensive than other brands but when you consider wiping up a poo you can use one or two of these, compared to five or more of a different brand, I consider them excellent value for money.
So everyone, I had my little boy at the end of February so I have been missing in action fro Dooyoo for quite a while. But it does mean I now have a plethora of reviews to write on countless mom and baby items i have been using for the last month and half. I thought I would first review the Huggies Pure Wipes as I am just using the last packet of them from my stash purchased before little Riley was born and I will not be replacing them.
Huggies are a very well known brand of baby products and produce nappies and wet wipes among other products. As such a well known brand and one that always seems to have its products on offer I stocked up on the Huggies Newborn nappies and the 'Pure' Wet Wipes when they were on offer in the various supermarkets.
Generally the 'Pure' Wipes are priced between £1.29 and £1.49, but always seem to be on offer somewhere for 99p/£1. They are sold in packs of 64, and come in a plastic packet.The packaging is simple and lightweight and has an image of a newborn baby on the front. The 'Pure' wipes are targeting newborns in particular with their packaging and images and say the wipes are very gentle and clean like cotton wool and water (but without the hassle). The wipes themselves are square thin cotton like sheets, with imprints of teddy bears on them. The wipes are also fragrance free.
The Packaging is nice and easy to throw in a changing bag and doesn't take up too much room. It is attractive and appealing and also quite a strong plastic packet, so theres no chance of it tearing. It is resealable to keep in the moisture and this is also nice and strong unlike some other packets of wipes I have used that still let the wipes dry out. The 'Pure' wipes are also good value for money at around the £1 mark per pack and with 64 in each pack that is cheap per wipe.
The wipes themselves are very soft, nice and moist to help you clean up and very gently on babies skin meaning you haven't got to worry about any chemicals in them.
Now for the downsides. The wipes are cheap for the old purse but it also seems that this cheapness is reflected in the quality of the wipes themselves. I find the sheets too thin and also too small compared to the Pampers Wet Wipes. If you have a major nappy change to do i can easily get through 10 wipes to do a decent clean up operation on the little one as they just are not a good enough size or thickness. This means the pack of 64 can deplete quite quickly making them less value for money.
Secondly as the wipes are so thin, I find it very cumbersome to actually get them out of the packet. I am forever trying to pull out a wipe and for those of you who know the faff of changing nappies you often need those wipes very quickly. Unlike other packets of wipes, with the Huggies Pure, when you pull out 1 wipe it rarely lifts the next one out so its ready on hand which is annoying.
These may be trivial downsides to the wipes but after hundreds of nappy changes I know what I want from a wet wipe to make the changes easier and I would prefer to pay a few pence more to buy the Pampers equivalent to make life easier.
In summery, Huggies Pure are a nice idea, soft and very gentle for newborn skin, they don't dry out and the packets are cheap, but your paying for what you get with very thin wipes and a bad design
I bought these Huggies wet wipes during my pregnancy as I had read so many good things about them on parenting forums. I have always bought them when on special offer, so making them extremely good value. I have tried virtually every single brand on the market and Huggies pure wipes are the best.
For starters, they have more wipes in a packet than any other brands which is great as you get through alot of wipes with a baby. I also like the texture of the wipes, other brands I have tried are slightly rough in texture, where as Huggies are soft and delicate in texture, good for babies delicate bums. As it says on the packaging the wipes are 'like cotton wool and water'- I agree with this statement.
Additionally, other brands seems to have less moisture on the wipes then Huggies. Moisture is key for me as moisture makes cleaning a dirty baby's bottom easier. It allows the wipe to glide effortlessly over the dirty area, making changing a nappy an efficient, stress free event.
Overall, when on offer these wipes are a bargain. Everything Huggies claims these wipes to be they are. Even when these wipes aren't on offer I would still buy them as I believe these are the best wipes on the market.
I've tried out several types of baby wipes. One of my friends swears by Huggies Pure and wouldn't use anything else. I've tried them a few times now and have mixed feelings.
Huggies pure wipes come in a soft plastic pack, with a cute baby on the front, fitting with the usual Huggies branding.
There's a large sticky piece covering the hole where the wipes are pulled from. It pulls from left to right, I *always* want to pull it the other way and have a tricky moment trying to open it and get a wipe out. This problem doesn't last long though because the sticky cover doesn't last as long as the pack and ends up falling off leaving the top wipes to dry out. I much prefer wipes with a plastic clip lid, they keep the wipes moist, are easy to open for adults, but not so easy to open for wipe loving babies.
The wipes themselves are the thickest, most luxurious feeling wipes I've felt. They feel around 4 times as thick as any other wipe I've used, eliminating the fear of 'poo finger' completely :)
The problem is getting them out of the packet. Whilst they are the thickest wipes I've seen, they are also the most papery. Where other wipes have some stretch to them and feel almost like a thin cloth, Huggies Pure are like a wad of wet toilet tissue. This makes getting them out of the pack difficult. I've lost count of the amount of times I've been holding a pooey baby's ankles with one hand, while pulling fingertip size pieces of Huggies Pure out of the pack instead of a full wipe!
I would use them again for hands and faces, but not for nappies. I find them too papery and get frustrated trying to get them out of the packet.
You can get a pack of 64 wipes for between £1 and £2 depending on offers.
I bought some huggies pure because they are were on offer. Pros are that they are gentle on babies skin. Cons being that they break easily, are quite thin and you have to use quite a few to clean a dirty nappy.
I bought Huggies wipes as I had found that their nappies were rather good and well-made and Huggies are one of the leading brands for baby care. Having gone through numerous packs with my new born baby I have decided not to buy them again due to poor quality. When taking the wipes out of the packet they rip and tear under a small amount of pressure and you are left with bits of wet wipe. It seems that although the wipes feel lovely to touch, unless you handle them very gently they just fall to bits, so no good for frantic nappy changes!!! The material does appear quite thick on inspection but they seem to stick to each other in the package which is tightly packed so separating them is a bit of a task. They do however smell divine, after wiping my baby down he was left smelling lovely and fresh. I really want to like these wipes but after using them for a couple of months they did start to annoy me and so reverted to a cheaper version.
One item I always like to have with me when I go out anywhere with Jayden is a packet of baby wipes, I have tried several brands in the last few months the ones which I am currently using are Huggies Pure Baby Wipes. I have tried items from the Huggies range including the nappies before and was very unimpressed with them, however I actually had a voucher for Huggies Pure Wipes so thought I would give these a try to see what they were like.
The Huggies Pure Baby Wipes come in a pale yellowy coloured plastic packet, this has a clear plastic tab on the top which can be pulled to one side to open the packet and remove the wipes. On the front of the packet is the name Huggies Pure written in white and blue writing. The majority of the front of the packet is taken up with a picture of a baby crouched on its front wearing a blue hat, the only other information on the front is the amount of wipes included and a statement about the wipes. The sides of the packet have the name written on them and the back of the packet contains all of the product information including where the wipes can be used and various pieces of information about the wipes. The re-sealable plastic packet is ideal for keeping the wipes moist, although I do find that the sticky tab which seals the packet can get a bit wet from the wipes and does loose a bit of its stickiness.
The Wipes are rectangle and plain white, they have the outline of teddy bear heads embossed all over them, personally I feel the wipes have a bit of a papery feel to them meaning that they can rip quite easily especially if you struggle to get a wipe out of the packet. These wipes are described as being as gentle as cotton wool and water on your baby's skin which I was pleased about as I knew they would be kind to Jayden's skin. The Huggies Pure wipes also contain no alcohol or perfume which again suggests that they are gentle, it also means that the wipes have no fragrance to them at all, personally I quite like baby wipes to have a bit of fragrance to them, Jayden doesn't appear to be sensitive to perfumed baby wipes so I do think that brands which do have a smell to them leave his skin smelling extra clean and fresh.
Each individual wipe is quite wet when you remove it from the packet which I quite like, if wipes are too dry they do not actually clean the area you want them to, when the wipes are slightly wetter I feel confident that they are actually doing what they are supposed to. The packaging also states that these wipes are made with natural fibres which I am guessing is why they have the papery feel to them that they do.
The Huggies Pure Baby Wipes can be used for a variety of things including wiping your baby's hands, face as well as using them during nappy changing, this is all illustrated with small diagrams on the back of the packet. You could actually use these baby wipes yourself to clean hands etc when out and about, they do not only have to be used for your baby. I actually use these wipes for all of the above and have had no problems, I can happily wipes Jayden's face with these after his bottle and know that they will be gentle on his skin.
Price and Availability
The Huggies Pure Baby Wipes can be purchased from a Varity of shops including chemists such as Boots and Superdrug, as well as most supermarkets. I purchased my Huggies wipes from my local Tesco as I had a voucher for them, the packet of 64 wipes cost just £2.59, personally I feel this is quite a good price as you do get a lot of wipes per packet, however they are not the cheapest baby wipes available. You can also buy a pack of 4 packets of wipes from Tesco which costs £4.40, I actually purchased these with my voucher as they work out a lot cheaper.
I have used the Huggies Pure Baby Wipes for a while now as I bought more than one packet and I have been quite impressed. The wipes are gentle on Jayden's skin and I know that they are not going to cause him any irritation. The wipes are reasonably priced although not the cheapest available, however they are quite long lasting, the wipes are quite wet compared to other brands I have tried meaning that you do not need to use loads of the wipes to clean your baby's skin. For me the only disadvantages is that there is no fragrance and also the wipes are quite weak and could rip easily, whilst the lack of fragrance makes them suitable for sensitive skin I do quite like my baby wipes to have a fragrance to them as I think they make Jayden's skin smell so much fresher especially when using them during a nappy change. The disadvantages would not stop me from purchasing these again in the future as I have been pleased with the results of these and would recommend them.
When I was pregnant I did a bit of stockpiling on products I knew I was going to use a lot of, baby wipes were near the top of the list and I thought I'd bought more than enough. Once the twins had arrived my stockpile soon disappeared and when looking to buy more these Huggies pure wipes were on offer and I thought I'd give them a try.
These wipes come in a strong plastic packet with a photo of a newborn baby on them. They are opened by pulling back a clear sticker on top. A problem I find with this sticker being clear is that it isn't obvious which end it opens, particularly on a new pack. Other brands have an arrow printed on them to help you out! Fiddling around trying to work out which end isn't stuck down didn't endear me to these wipes. The clear sticker stays sticky though and reseals the packet well right until the end, which in our case is only a few days but they are opened and closed a lot!
The packet claims these wipes provide 'gentle cleaning like cotton wool and water', when my twins were is hospital we didn't use wipes just the hospital disposable cloths and water and so it was nice to see that these wipes would be just as kind.
Upon removing a wipe from the packet the cute teddy bears on the wipe caught my eye, I thought this was a lovely idea and if appearance was the most important thing then great but I want a wipe that cleans well. The wipes feel different to other brands in that they feel more like a strong paper towel than a cloth but I don't find that this makes it easier to clean. They feel nice to the touch but just don't clean up like other brands so I find that I regularly need to use 3 when I would only expect to use 2.
Trying to get these wipes out one handed is impossible as I can never find an edge to grab hold of, more often than not I end up putting a finger through a wipe in the process which then limits its use when cleaning up, argh!
These wipes are perfume and alcohol free and have been clinically tested, neither of my little ones have had any adverse reaction to these wipes. Like most baby wipes they can not be flushed down the toilet.
Price and Availability
These wipes are widely available from stockists of baby toiletries. They are currently half price in Tesco, £1.29 for 64 wipes. I purchased mine when they were on buy 1 get 2 free so £2.59 for 3 packs. I thought this was good value but upon using them I changed my mind as I'd rather pay a bit more and have a wipe I can get out of the packet without putting a finger through it.
Would I recommend?
No, there are far better wipes available at a lower price. If you are buying them it is definitely worth waiting for them to be on a buy 1 get 2 free offer as even at half price I think they are over priced.
I usually buy supermarket own brand wipes but when I noticed the huggies pure on offer I decided to give them a go as my little boy has a sensitive bum and so I thought they may be good for him.
The packaging emphasises the pureness of the wipes, with a simple cream colour and the white bubble writing of huggies with a cute picture of a baby lay down. All in all it gives the impression of naturalness which made me even more sure that these wouldn't irritate my baby. The packaging also states that these wipes are almost like using water and cotton wool, again another claim making me want to try these wipes.
On opening the wipes they have almost a lotion smell which is lovely. Unfortunately there is only a sticker which pulls on and off to keep the wipes most and once you've used it a few times the sticker loses it stickiness and so it can make the wipes go a bit drier.
The wipes themselves are nice to use on your baby as they are just the right wetness and also feel like thick quilted toilet paper and so it really does feel as though it is taking care of babies bum. However because of this quality when you pull them out of the pack they tend to tear which can be frustrating as you can waste a few wipes just ripping them.
But they do what they say and are good for senstive bums, however I will properly stick to the supermarket brands as I wouldn't pay there normal retail price for them.
- Why I Bought -
When my son was born we used Huggies Pure wipes when changing his nappy. I quickly decided I preferred other brands but if I see a good offer I sometimes still buy them. I picked up a few packs when they were 3 for the price of 1 in Tesco a few months ago.
- The Packaging -
The wipes come in a cream packet which looks clean and simple in design. The packet displays the Huggies brand, name of the wipes and states that they are fragrance free and perfect for newborns. Personally I chose to use water and cotton wool in the first few weeks as this is meant to be the gentlest way to clean a newborn. 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 smell very natural and fresh as they have no fragrance in them. This is pleasant but I prefer the smell of the aloe in the Natural Care wipes. 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 which is good as they are marketed as being suitable for a newborn. Overall I do like the wipe 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 like how thick, soft and moist they are but they rip way too easily which is irritating and impractical when changing nappies.
For delicate skin.
