- Why I Bought -
Huggies wipes aren't my favourite but if I see a good offer I tend to buy them anyway. Having been previously disappointed by how easily the Natural Care and Pure wipes rip, when I saw the Soft Skin wipes in Boots a few weeks ago I wasn't expecting them to be any better. However, I was looking for baby items to buy with my Boots points and these were on offer so I thought I would try them and bought one pack.
- The Packaging -
The wipes come in a peach packet which complements the shea butter ingredient nicely. The packet displays the Huggies brand, name of the wipes and states that they contain shea butter which is apparently nature's moisturiser. 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. As with the Natural Care and Pure wipes, 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. Like the Natural Care wipes they smell divine. You can smell the shea butter which is really creamy and sweet. 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! They clean faces and bottoms well and don't cause irritation to the skin. They leave the skin feeling soft as the name suggests so I would assume the shea butter does moisturise. 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. I paid £1 in Boots and even then it was only to use up my Boots points! They are available in 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 them on 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.
Summary: A nice wipe that smells lovely but rips way to easily
