- Why I Bought -
I have already written a review on Johnson's baby wipes which I have been using for years for myself and for my baby. As I have always been pleased with the quality and price of these wipes I thought I would give Johnson's baby wipes "with extra protection" a go. They claim to help protect from redness and irritation with Aloe and Willow herb.
- The Packaging -
The packet is pale pink and green with dark blue writing and a picture of a cute baby. There is a piece of sticky plastic sealing the pack which can be resealed after each use. As with the other Johnson's wipes the first thing you notice when using these wipes is that they pull out of the pack easily and you don't end up with ten wipes at a time. This is very useful when dealing with an unpleasant nappy situation!
- The Wipes -
The wipes have 64 in a pack and come in fragrance free but I tend to buy the fragranced version. The wipes have a nice smell, quite floral. I have bought other wipes that smell nicer but these ones smell fine. I don't think there is a distinct difference in smell between the two different varieties but these one do perhaps have a faint Aloe Vera smell. The wipes are thick which to me indicates good quality. They are also stretchy and large which is quite handy as you get more use out of the wipe. The extra protection wipes have green stripes on them. The best thing about these wipes is that they are really moist. You feel like you are giving baby's bottom, face or hands a really good wash with these wipes. The wipe itself feels gentle and the packet states "no more tears". Aloe is known for its medicinal qualities and for being kind to skin. I used these wipes while changing nappies and for wiping my babies face after food time and haven't noticed any skin irritation, as with the original wipes.
- Price and Availability -
The standard price to pay for Johnson's baby wipes are, with or without the extra protection, £2.44 for a single pack, £5.49 for a four pack, £7.49 for a six pack. For the extra protection packs they are harder to find in multi packs but large supermarkets sometimes stock them. I like that there is no difference in price between the two varieties. Over the past year I have had quite a few vouchers for Johnson's products and they are also regularly on offer in supermarkets such as Tesco and Sainsbury's so it is possible to pick up a real bargain. I don't tend to pay more than £1 per pack and I find that I am regularly able to buy Johnson's wipes at this price.
- Would I recommend? -
Over all I would describe these wipes as excellent quality, kind to skin and reasonably priced, particularly when on offer. I can't say I notice a huge difference from the original wipes but as they are the same price I will continue to buy both and would recommend them to others.
I have a lot of grandchildren and buy these wipes to keep in my home for when they come to stay over for the night or weekend. I like to buy my own so that I know that I have them available for them and ready to use. I often do buy these on special offer as I did the last time I bought them.
They are housed in a plastic wrapper which is pink with a photo of a baby on the front. The wipes are rectangle and a very good size of around 8 inches by 6 inches. They are white in colour with green stripes. They smell like a new born baby when they are taken from the packet. They can be taken from the packet by pulling back the strip on the front of it. Very easy to pull back and to take out the wipe from the packet too.
They are extremely soft wipes and the texture is smooth and soft, they are nice gentle wipes to clean a baby's bottom. I like to use these to clean my grandchildren's hands and fingers when they have been eating a messy food and they clean really well indeed. They clean the bottom well too and remove all the dirt with just a couple of wipes. These wipes are quite moist and they hold the moisture very well indeed. They do not dry out while still using them as I have found with other brands. Sometimes I have had to keep using a wipe and use at least 2 or 3 so that it cleans the full bottom but with these only one wipe is enough usually to clean the bottom, unless as we all know a very messy, dirty bottom from a baby needs a little extra wipes to clean it more thoroughly.
These contain Aloe vera and willow herb to help sooth the skin, none of my grandchildren have ever had any skin irritations with these wipes. They are so gentle on their delicate skins. They are a super quality and extremely good value for the money.
I bought them on offer for only a £1 for a pack of 64 wipes and I just think that is a really good amount for the price. The usual price can be around the £1.80 mark, depending where purchased. So when I see them on offer they go straight into my trolley.
These help sooth the skin and protect it from redness and irritations.
I will always buy these wipes because I think they are a good brand and worth the money. They are also used for removing my wife's make up, she sometimes likes to use them and they remove it all with no problems.
I rate these 5 stars.
Now I must admit I don't use these on a babies skin.. but I use them on my own and also on my dog! These always seem to be on offer for £1 in morrisons, Asda etc.. and they really are great company when you feel like you want a shower but there just isn't time. They are a great way to freshen up, without the need for soap and a towel (so perfect for taking to work if you are going out straight after).
As they are for babies they are for sensitive skin and contains no harsh ingredients. They are also fragrance free and and offer a lovely clean feeling! They are really mild - so perfect to use on my face to remove make up too.
The product --> These wipes come in a handy plastic holder, which opens up on the front for easy access to each wipe. They are white. There are about 60 wipes in each pack.
I brought a pack for V festival and it was fantastic to have them, as they are not expensive you don't mind using how many you need to use at any time. Being soft too, it means they are not harsh on your skin.
The cost --> These generally retail for £1 a pack, but could be about £1.50 depending on what offer is on when you buy them.
I also use them to clean my dogs mucky ears and paws when he is dirty. So a great buy for everyone!
I have 3 children aged, 4, 2 and 4 months. I discovered these after my eldest was born and have used them for all 3.
They are a decent size, and white with green stripes. They state that they help protect from redness and skin irritation, I assume they mean nappy rash. I'm not sure how effective this actually is however my eldest got awful nappy rash every time he had a tooth coming and I did notice (over the course of several teeth) that if we used different wipes the rash was worse so I'm inclined to take them at face value on that and believe them.
It also states that it contains aloe and willow herb, several people will be aware of these plants uses in medicinal purposes so I assume it is this that gives the extra protection.
My eldest has also got a rash from every brand of wipes I have tried apart from this one. My middle and youngest child get mild eczema and they have never had any issues with these wipes.
These wipes are a decent size, and although my other half tells me off for using 1 for polish ("they cost money you know!" lol) the messiest poo takes around 4 wipes. Don't think I have ever used more than 10 and that was when we were out and he had the runs and it was from chest to toes! So although more expensive than quite a few brand they are definately value for money
They are nice and moist but not watery, they also have a slight creaminess to them, again I assume this is the extra protection. Having had the normal Johnsons before I would confirm that not only are these moister, the normal ones have caused a reaction on my eldest.
These are not just for bums, they are also soft and gently enough that I use them for hands and feces after meal times.
I would definatly recommend this to anyone having a baby, or looking for a more sesitive wipe.
I use Johnson's Extra Protection Baby Wipes on both my son when he needs cleaning up - cleaning him when I change his nappy, or cleaning his face when its covered in food (or snot!) when we're out and about, or even giving his hands a wipe if its not convenient to get to a sink. Each pack cost me £2.44 from Tesco - and as each pack contains 64 wipes, that equates to almost 4p per wipe. I guess I tend to get through about one pack a week and this feels reasonable to me. Although there are cheaper brands on the market, my experience has shown that purchasing other brands other than Johnson's tends to be a false economy because I find that I use more wipes per episode and so end up going through the pack quicker.
The wipes come in a soft plastic pack which have a resealable cover which can be peeled open and then sealed shut in order to keep the wipes inside moist. The wipes are arranged in a way so that if you pull out one wipe then the next wipe comes out after - until the pack is empty. This works very well and means that I don't end up pulling out more than one wipe at a time and wasting wipes unnecessarily. I have also found that the plastic packaging does keep the wipes moist - as long as they are resealed.
Each wipe is a good size - and is made of strong paper cloth which does not tear accidentally. Although the wipes are strong and gently textured, they are not abrassive in any way. Each wipe has a cream based lotion on it which works to provide a protective barrier to the skin - but this lotion is made by Johnson's no-tears formula, meaning that it is very gentle......gentle enough for a baby's bottom!
I am very impressed by how well these wipes work to remove literally anything from the skin - and they do so without leaving any sliminess or stickiness. Infact my sons' skin feels just like I have washed it with water, except that it leaves a very light fragrance behind - which can only be described as a "clean baby smell" that is typical of the Johnson's ragge. There has never been any adverse reaction to my sons skin.....or to my skin when I've used them which is good considering I do have fairly sensitive skin.
Overall, I think these wipes are very good quality and I will continue to use them.
My daughter is two yeards old now, and the novelty and need for brand name wipes has long since worn off. I've found that some store's own brand wipes work just as well and are usually a third of the price. However, I saw Johnson's on offer in Boots and decided to stock up.
The wipes claim to protect from redness and irritation using aloe and willow herb, and while my daughter has been much less irritated, redness sometimes remains. The wipes themselves are fragranced, which although not unpleasant, does linger. White and green in colour, the wipes are strectchy and do the required job well. They don't tear easily and are adequately thick. I think these wipes can sometime sit on the moist/wet border as it is possible to easily wring them out, however I don't find this to be a problem and can even assist you in some difficult nappy changes.
The wipes come in a resealable trademark pink and green packet of 64 and are easily separated from one another.
Normal retail price is usually in the region of £2.44 and is available at chemists, supermarkets and at some local shops.
Although they do their job well, I don't see them as being anything special. I would buy these again when they're on offer.
Since the news that I am going to become a grandma for the second time I am now buying baby items and products for my daughter and son in law to help them towards a nice parcel of baby products of which I know they use regularly and like very much and since I also buy them for my home for when my grandson visits and has a sleep over quite often now he is getting a little older he sleeps at least once a month of which I absolutely adore.
I buy these wipes a lot because I use them for myself and also for my grandson and when I spotted them recently for only £1 for a pack of 64 wipes I bought 5 packets because I also bought another brand which was also on special offer too from Tesco.
They come in a plastic wrapper with a pull back strip to reveal the wipes, the wipes can be easily taken from the packet and the strip can be replaced after taking out the wipes and it holds back into place again with no problem at all.
Each wipe measures approximately 9 inches by 6 inches rectangle shape and they are beautifully soft and the texture is just super and they are a nice thickness too, they do not tear when wiping the bottom of the baby or young child, my grandson has never had any irritations with these wipes because the quality is so good.
They glide across the skin perfectly and little effort is needed to remove any dirt from the bottom, they are just perfect for the little ones as they have such delicate skin. These wipes have a slight fragrance to them and they are quite a strong wipe in my opinion and I like to use them for wiping my grandsons hands or face after he has made a mess eating or when he has been painting.
They do not cause any redness on the skin and they do not sting as they are such a gentle wipe, I use them to remove my make up sometimes and I use them along side my facial wipes and they remove my make up very nicely and I have sensitive skin and they are just perfect for my skin.
Because of the quality and good job they do, not many are needed to clean the skin, I have only really had to use up to 2 at a time and that is only when a lot of mess has been on the bottom, not my bottom my grandsons lol.
They do not dry the skin after use, they leave the skin feeling nice and smooth, I really love the size of these wipes and they are very easy to hold and use because of the quality and they refresh my face and are not at all harsh or rough.
I have used these wipes to wipe over my grandsons highchair tray many times and also for wiping my door handles if I have ever run out of household cleaning wipes which I buy all the time.
Johnson's have been around for some many years and are a very reliable brand to buy and they are always super products that I just love and these wipes I highly recommend to anyone to buy even if they have no little ones and to use them for other purposes like myself.
I give these 5 stars.
Thank you for reading my review.
When it comes to baby wipes there is quite a wide market and most stores such as Boots, Tesco and Sainsburys even make their own to contend with the likes of Huggies and Johnsons. I've been using baby wipes as facial wipes for myself for a few years so I have tried quite a few varieties from the cheap to the slightly more expensive. Now I have stopped using cotton wool and warm water to clean my daughter's delicate derriere I wanted to use a wipe which I knew would be soft, gentle and mild as I would hate to see her skin irritated.
One make of wipes I have used on myself are Johnsons Extra Protection. I first bought them because they were on offer but since using them I don't use anything else and I decided that I would use them on my daughter. Johnsons is one of those brands that everyone has heard of and their products are used around the world. I am a big fan of both their baby and adult products as they seem to suit my skin as well as my daughters.
Johnsons Extra Protection wipes contain aloe and willowherb which is meant to help protect from any irritation and redness that can happen in the nappy area. Both these ingredients will also gently cleanse a baby's delicate skin.
The Extra Protection wipes come in a re-sealable pale pink and pale green (giving reference to aloe and willowherb) pack which contains 64 wipes in each pack. On the front is a picture of a very cute smiling baby and of course the item name and the Johnsons famous signature. The wipes also contain Johnsons no tears formula and the no tears formula pink tear logo is also on the front of the pack.
Wipes seem to vary when it comes to how they feel and the Extra Protection wipes feel quite creamy when you first take one out of the packet. This is due to the wipes having pale green stripes which contain the protective cream made up of ale and willowherb. The wipes don't feel damp or too wet but compared to other wipes I have tried they do feel creamy and moist which is quite nice to feel that the wipes to actually contain something! The wipes are also quite a decent size which is ideal as you don't need to use too many to clean a little one's bum as some brands I have used the wipes tend to be thin and small whereas these cream enriched wipes are actually quite thick.
The wipes do have a lovely fresh aroma which I find actually quite soothing. It does remind me of the smell of talc but with a soft herbal note to it. Whatever the scent is, it is subtle, calming and perfectly pleasant! The aroma does however disappear as soon as you have used it so it doesn't linger on the skin.
Since making the switch from cotton wool and water to these wipes I really didn't want to see any redness or irritation on my daughter's bum as I really don't want to see her in any discomfort whatsoever which is mainly why I opted for these wipes. Their promise of gentle protection was just what I wanted. I have now been using these wipes on my daughter for about two weeks and I haven't seen any irritation but I did notice that the first few days I was using them there was a little redness but nothing you could actually class as nappy rash. My health visitor just explained that it was the transition from basic cotton wool and water to using wipes. With a little nappy cream this redness soon disappeared and it hasn't come back.
When using these wipes they are lovely and creamy as I said above but I have noticed that her bum and wherever else I have used them wipe on her, her skin stays quite moist and I do have to leave her for a few seconds before I put her new nappy on. This isn't a problem but just something I've picked up on. After a few seconds her skin is smooth and dry, I presume it is the protective cream which needs to be absorbed.
Overall, my daughter's skin is perfectly soft, smooth and best of all it isn't red and irritated. The wipes are definitely ideal for her, they are gentle and mild which is great for delicate baby skin and for me as long as she is comfortable then these wipes will be bought over and over again.
Johnsons Extra Protection wipes come in packs of 64 and are available at stores such as Boots, Tesco and Sainsburys and cost around £2.39 per pack. As I said above because they are quite thick and a decent size you don't need to use too many at a nappy change so the pack actually lasts for quite sometime. Definitely a product I would recommend!
When we first had my daughter, my wife and I were unsure which baby products were best and found the most effective way to find out was through simple trial and error. By this example then, over the course of the last couple if years, we have ended up trying out most of the baby wipes available on the market! Out of those products we have "tested", these were by far the best!
Labelled as "Extra Protection", these wipes from the trustworthy company, Johnson And Johnson, contain Aloe Vera and Willow Herb in special strips that are located throughout the wipe in order to help soothe any "bits" that are sensitive from nappy rash or irritation. They have a very pleasant smell and come in packs of 64 for around the £2.39 mark ~ though they are often on offer and you can usually get them for more like £1- £1.50 if you shop around. Boots are currently selling them for £1 but when their offer ends, I am sure that someone else such as Wilkinson will sell them reduced as this has been my previous experience!
Some reviewers on here have commented that they find them "slimy" but I have never found that the case though they do sometimes leave a trace of the Aloe Vera solution behind when you use them! This is not always a bad thing though as, when this dries, you are left with very clean-smelling hands and lets be honest here, there is very little better than a nice clean smell that reassures you that the wipes are doing their job!
They are best used on bottoms or skin only though and I do not reccommend them using them to clean surfaces etc or anything else as they can leave a kind of creamy streak behind which is the Aloe Vera and Willowheb coming out of the wipe. I do find that they are not always as effective with freshly pooed bottoms (sorry about any messy details here folks) as I do agree that initially they can smear stuff around and sometimes you can find yourself using more wipes than you intended but the thing with these over other varieties for me is that they stay wet or moist for longer and don't dry out as quick! Other makes we have used have drioed out very quickly making them sometimes quite rough on the ol' bot-bot!
Of course, it all comes down to personal opinion and I do have a precedent of not always agreeing with my fellow reviewers but I have to styand up and say that in my house we like these and provided you stock up when you see them on offer, they are well worth the money!
i recently bought these wipes on offer in Adsa. It was two packs of 4 for £8 so that work out at just £1 a pack which is almost the same as Adsa own brand wipes. I was very pleased I bagged such a great bargain as I've seen these for £2.49 a pack in some place.
They have the cute Johnsons baby on the front and no more tears logo and match other Johnsons products. They are easy to open and reseal so no problems there. The wipes themselves are a good size and appear to have green and white strips on them. They have a lovely clean fresh smell which I like.
My problem with them is that there seems to be too much extra protection lotion on these wipes. It makes them very wet and a bit too creamy for my liking. I have used these on both my boys and they do work well and clean them up nicely. Neither have problems with sore bottoms either. I didn't like them for wiping my own hands with as you could ring the lotion out of them which some people might like but I don't.
Johnson's baby skincare wipes with extra protection are high up in the baby wipes ranks in my opinion.
I have wrote before in reveiws how my son has a very sensitive little bootie and many many of the wipes on the shelves add to the irritation and far from ease the problem, even some of the wipes that claim to be soothing have proved to be harsh!
Johnsons baby wipes with extra protection are not one of these, they really are gentle and non irritating. They have the same Johnsons baby trademark smell but are enriched with aloe and willow herb for added protection so there is a slight sweetness to the smell which is really nice.
I bought these wipes in tesco recently for £1.29 and the were buy one get one free, get them while it lasts, its a really great bargain, with 64 wipes per pack thats 128 wipes for £1.29, basically 1p per wipe!
At full price even still, they are a well priced product that does its job well!
My daughter always uses Johnson's or Pampers baby wipes for my granddaughter and when I had her for the weekend recently she sent a packet of wipes that I had never seen before, Johnson's Extra Protection which have added aloe and willow herb to keep your baby's skin in perfect soft condition.
The main visible difference with these wipes is that they have green stripes going down the wipe, these stripes are the aloe and willow herb protective cream and give the wipe a very attractive and unusual appearance.
However good they look though, I don't like them. Yes, they are kind to my granddaughters bottom when she has her nappy changed but she is fortunate in rarely suffering from nappy rash or spots anyway so I wouldn't buy these wipes for this specific reason as her usual Johnson's wipes and the Sainsbury's Little Ones wipes that I buy are perfect for changing time and keep her bum lovely and smooth.
The awful thing about these Extra Protection wipes is the addition of the cream which has made them slimy and very hard to handle. I find one Johnson's wipe is all that is needed to clean a dirty bottom as they cleanse well and are large enough to be folded, but these wipes are hard to fold because the sliminess makes them slightly slippery which means they never seem to crease exactly where you want them to. And anyone who has ever changed a nappy will know that there is an art in folding the wipe so that it doesn't spill, well, poo onto the changing mat!
For this reason I have to use two of these, one to clean my granddaughter and a second to ensure I haven't missed any in my efforts to keep the mess away from my hands. Another thing is that the wipes don't clean half as effectively as plain wipes, I like Johnson's because the cotton feel of the wipe will absorb some of the baby poo and the rest will kind of cling to the wipe which aids the whole cleansing process. This doesn't happen with this Extra Protection variety as the strange slimy feel only serves to smear the mess around my granddaughters bottom, which is a particularly bad thing when changing a baby girl as any poo left in various creases can cause irritation and infection if not cleaned properly.
Having said that, even when my granddaughter just has a wet nappy I find these wipes bad. It's the feel of them, they feel too slimy and greasy to have any real cleansing effect and for this reason I haven't even bothered using them as face wipes and I think I'll end up binning them unless I can find a use for them around the house. I don't even find them particularly moisturising so what the purpose of adding the stripes of cream was I don't know!
One good thing about these is that they never dry out, I left the plastic flap open for a couple of days and when I went back to the wipes it was only the top two which had lost some of their moisture but they were still damp enough for use. I think subconsciously I'd left them open on purpose to give me an excuse to put them in the bin when I found they'd dried out as I felt a pang of irritation when I picked them up to find they were still wet!
A packet of 64 Johnson's Extra Protection wipes costs £2.33 from Sainsbury's, the reason I ended up with this packet was because my daughter bought them while they were on BOGOF and she didn't particularly like them either. She obviously gets through wipes much quicker than I do so she's already finished her packet and gone back to her usual plain Johnson's wipes as they clean better, have a much nicer texture and are cheaper too!
I have always been a fan on the Johnson's brand. The No More Tears range has been around since I was a child and when I had my own children there was no shopping around as I knew exactly what to buy for them.
The original Johnsons wipes are mild, soft and do exactly what you would want them to and more. We mums end up not only using them whilst changing nappies but also on sticky hands, mucky faces and table tops. I have tried a lot of other brands when I've seen different offers on and I will never again. Other wipes I have tried have been too thick, had designs on them which left them not as smooth and thus didn't clean as well, and some were just no good as they would break apart which was of no use at all.
As a company Johnson & Johnson meet very high standards to ensure their products are mild and safe. They make all the lines meet global safety standards. A research team conducts thorough safety assessments prior to the introduction of any new product. I can just imagine a line of babies and children using the shampoo and giving feedback!  In addition to all the lovely products Johnson's as a company are always helping parents. They publish help guides such as 'washing my baby' and the one I found helpful which was 'sleep and your baby'. They always have a stand at the numerous Baby Shows to hand out guides, offer entries into competitions, give out free samples and give out massive handfuls of coupons.
After seeing them at the London Baby Show I found out that Johnson's make a bath time suitcase sort of thing with loads of different products in it. Mine is purple (also available in white). Inside it had a pack of original wipes, soap with honey, shampoo with camomile 500ml, baby powder 100g, lavender bedtime bath 500ml, baby oil 500ml, baby lotion 500ml, some cotton swabs and a couple other little sample bits. All this was only £15 at Boots. I've seen a few prices so shop around but well worth the purchase.
Right, back to my review ... Johnson's wipes can always be found in the shops at competitive prices. I just got a box of 6 wipes packs for £5 at Asda. Normally one pack will set you back roughly £2.50.
When doing my shop a little while ago my local store was out of Johnson's wipes. The area on the shelf opposite had the newer Johnson's wipes with aloe. I looked at them and thought there couldn't be too much of a difference. The pack looks almost the same except for a bit of green to indicate it's the with aloe pack and that it says Extra Protection.
In conclusion after using the wipes I have decided to stay with the original ones. The wipes with aloe are very nice and just as gentle but they seem to foam a tiny bit almost as soap does and it interferes with me using nappy creams afterwards.

Baby wipes are a godsend in our house. We go through loads as they are so versatile. We use them not only for bottoms but hands, faces, tables, bags, shoes etc. They are amazing.
So when I was in semi- chem and they had a box of 6 packets for £5.00 I thought I had a real bargain. How wrong was I????
I didnt realise that these ones were so different from the standard J & J babywipes. These are very wet and soapy. This causes them to be extremely cold on little ones bottoms. I have got the the stage that they are sitting on top of the radiator for when I need them. They are also very thin so you really need to use 2 in place of 1 normal one. They are also very stretchy - not great if you are cleaning a bottom and they stretch and tear at the wrong moment.
I always keep a spare packets of wipes in the car which come in handy, especially when the kids have toothpaste all over them and their sweatshirts. Unfortunately if you use the extra protection ones on the sweatshirts it leaves them white with soap, so beware.
Johnson & Johnson wipes are fantastic - just dont buy the extra protection ones.
