This is not so much a baby skin care review, but an adult skin care review using these wipes! I always have to have a pack of Johnson's Baby Wipes in my house as they come in handy for everything - literally. I normally buy Johnson's Baby Skincare wipes in Morrisons or Wilkinsons as they are ALWAYS on Buy 1, get 1 free. So this is great! Sometimes when I am too lazy to cleanse and tone my face, these baby wipes effectively remove my make-up, or even just to remove make-up mistakes - it's a great alternative to cleanser and will not cause a break out in spots as they are extremely kind to skin. Considering it's purpose is for baby skincare - should be fine for all sensitive skin. However, FYI I would never switch it completely for cleanser and toner.
Baby wipes are extremely refreshing, but I feel they slightly dry out my skin after use. Maybe that is just my skin type, and could be different for you. So if you don't already, I'd recommend you use a trusted moisturiser after use.
The wipes are quite a reasonable size (bigger than the size of my hand) and you get 64 wipes in a pack. The packs normally have deals on in local shops as I mentioned earlier - so it is great value for money. Even without Buy 1, Get 1 free deals I believe the wipes retail around £2+ - so it is great value for money! They are currently 1 quid on Boots online at the moment, and even after the Boots promotion runs out, plenty of other online retailers will sell it for cheap. So it is a constant bargain.
I have a toddler, what more can i say, I go through hundreds of baby wipes each week! They are used for everything from wiping bottoms to cleaning sticky finger prints off of my leather sofa. Needless to say I look out for offers on baby wipes. I was in my local sainsburys store at the weekend and came across Johnsons baby skin care wipes on offer at £1 per pack, so I grabbed a few.
The packet is in the usual Johnsons baby lotion pink, with the Johnsons No more tears logo. The packet contains 64 wipes and claims to be as mild as pure water to skin and eyes, and has a clinically proven mildness stamp on the reverse. It has a resealable opening on the top where you pull the wipes through, they are folded so that the next wipe follows through the opening making it easy to grab a wipe when needed.
The wipes themselves are made from a kind of thin stretchy fabric they are around 8x6 inch in size. They smell like baby lotion, I personally love the smell and find it helps disguise any dirty nappy smell. They are great for cleaning babies skin leaving it fresh smelling and soft and moisturised, we have never had any problem with rashes or irritation with Johnsons but then I do consider them to be one of the best so I really would not expect any reactions.
I always have a pack of baby wipes to hand, with a pack in almost every room and even in the car,I also find them usefull for wiping up any small spills on furniture and carpet, they clean my leather sofa beautifully also leaving the leather soft clean and moisturised. They are also great for removing make up if you need a quick fix.
All in all I think Jonsons have to be one of the best baby wipes around and would recommend them to everybody all ages!
I am a huge fan of baby wipes. Ok I have no baby or child but I still like Johnsons products for me and I use them for all sorts of tasks, couple that with the fact that I am a qualified nursery and done nannying jobs and ran creches and all sorts in my time so I'm rather familiar with these wipes!
The other day I spotted a packet of 25 wipes in Poundland....yep you guessed it costing £1 and knowing I was running low on any kind of wipes and that I was travelling miles to visit my parents with my mate in a car over the festive period I decided these would be perfect seeing as we would be using public toilets, eating out and allsorts on the way there and on the way back and we really are a couple of mucky pups!
The packet that the wipes come in is light pink and light blue with a thick bit of white plastic on the front of it which flips open and you simply pull a wipe through the hole. On the front of the packet we are told that they are Johnson's Baby Skincare Wipes 'Gentle care for delicate skin wherever you are' and that they are a no more tears formulation and that of course there are 25 wipes in the packet (well there is in my packet size anyway) and a few pictures of a cute looking baby are shown on there too. On the back of the packet other information listed includes being told a bit about the wipes and the ingredients used, the best before date is clearly stamped on there and contact details for Johnsons are given as well as lots of information given in foreign languages. Nice, easy to open packet this is, I do appreciate being able to pull out a wipe at a time too and not a couple so I get less waste and of course the packaging is as informative as it needs to be.
A Bit About The Product According To The Information Listed On The Back Of The Packet:
Johnsons baby on the go wipes, specially folded and with a convenient lid made for easy dispensing wherever you go. Enriched with out no more tears baby lotion, they gently cleanse and care for your baby's delicate skin, and are proven to be as mild as pure water to kin and eyes. Soap and alcohol free. For external use only.
Large and sort of squarish in shape these are material clothes that are smooth and moist and rather large and you have to unfold them to use them, which is simple to do. They have a wonderful aroma to them of Johnsons baby lotion which if your not familiar with the scent of baby products is a warm, sweet and very clean smell indeed. Not too thick, these ridged wipes are robust enough for even really messy jobs!
I have used these for wiping my hands with after eating and smoking, wiped my face with them for a quick freshen up, used them in public toilets all over the place for a quick spruce up and I used them to stay fresh when I had flu in bed and wasn't very mobile but didn't want to stink. Of course I have used these on children as well and they are great for freshening babies/toddlers/kids anywhere they need to be without irritating their sensitive skins at all and the watery lotion these put on the skin dries quickly and of course is slightly moisturising.
Mild, smell great and lift grease and grime off the skin these are not drippy wipes but wonderfully and gently hydrating after using them and the smell lingers on the skin for hours too. I love these convenient, easy to pull out of the packet and hard working wipes alot and to me they really are cream of the crop!
These are available in different formulations and in different sizes too but for a packet my size (if you don't find them on offer like I did!) should cost around a couple of quid a packet though in Boots (at the time of writing this review) I have just noticed that on offer at the moment you can purchase a packet of 64 of these wipes for a pound! Available in all good supermarkets and chemists etc.

Johnson's is part of the Johnson and Johnson brand. The company is well known for its range of baby skin and bath care products. This range includes bubble baths, talcum, cotton buds, soap and more.
===Product and Range===
Johnson's has a selection of baby wipes to choose from depending on your little angels skin. You can purchase normal wipes or extracare ones.
This review concentrates on the Johnson's Baby Skincare Wipes.
Baby wipes are mainly aimed at those who are cleaning bums. Whether it be a stinky one or a pee pee one, it needs cleaned and someone has to do it. You can prepare yourself to some extent by ensuring you have a nappy, a nappy bag and some baby wipes to hand. These baby wipes can also be used all over the body so are perfect at cleaning grubby and sticky mitts!
These wipes are promoted as having no more tears formula which is evident in the majority of Johnson's baby products. They are designed to be gentle on the skin and can be used on the face as they are as pure to eyes as water. They contain a baby lotion blended with 97% water. They are also clinically tested and soap and alcohol free.
The wipes come sealed in strong, pink plastic packet with a tab opening. Although the pack is mainly pink, it has a blue edging so not all girly. The wipes can be instantly recognised by a gorgeous smiling baby on the front alongside the familiar Johnson's logo and product name.
The back of the pack has information about the wipes in various languages aswell as the ingredients, contact details and disposal options. It is noted that the pack can be recycled and the wipes shouldn't be flushed down the loo.
This is simple and doesn't really need much explaining. For stinky bums, peg over nose, remove nappy and wipe. Dispose afterwards. For grubby fingers, simply run the wipe over the hand and dispose.

===Availability and Price===
These wipes can be picked up in supermarkets. They come in a standard 64pk size and cost anything from £1.00 (on offer) up to around £2.49. They can often by found on BOGOF.
I do quite a bit of bum changes and have done so for the past 2yrs. I won't lie to you..my sons nappies can be rather unpleasant and as myself and hubby take it in turns to change him, I often have the chore of doing the stinky one. This chore ranges from a little splatter to a big, sliding down the leg explosion and I need something to clean it up fast! This is where the baby wipes come in.
Now, although I trust the Johnson company as a baby brand, I am not loyal to them. I normally opt to purchase Boots own wipes as they are always on offer at 3 packs for £2.50-£3.00. As Johnson's and Pampers will cost anything up to £2.49 per pack, I feel I get more for my money with Boots.
The reason behind my recent purchase of Johnson's Baby Skincare Wipes was convenience. I had left my baby wipes at home and Boo had grubby chocolate mitts. I wanted to clean him up before we got to his Grans so nipped into Boots and I spotted these on offer at £1.00. I picked them up and paid receiving some advantage card points in the process.
The pack itself is quite sturdy despite being plastic. I find the tiny seal on the front is sticky enough to press back down and your barely notice its there. The pink and blue pack is very cute and that gorgeous baby is even cuter. He is quite similar Boo but of course Boo is cuter! All information I need is on the pack. I do feel the pack is rather oversized and this is a bad move for enviromental purposes.
So the main use for these is cleaning my sons bum. He is not quite toilet trained so Mummy or Daddy needs to do all the work. When you get the pack open, the wipes are easy to remove and aren't interwined so you only get one out at a time. This is ideal as it means I don't waste as many.
The wipes themselves are white and quite thin though strong. You can semi see through them and they are adorned with vertical lines. The wipes are very soft yet tough. If you attempt to stretch them horizontally, they give a slight stretch and don't tear easily. If you try to stretch them vertically, they make a bouncy noise and I feel this is a sign of quality as they don't tear.
The wipes have a fresh and clean smell and you can detect and undertone scent of lotion. They are incredibly damp and when you first open the pack, they are almost soaking. I am not used to this with baby wipes as I prefer them to be only slightly damp enough to clean. The thickness of these allows me to simply use 1 for a wet nappy or 2-3 depending on how big the no2 explosion is. They swipe over Boos bum effortlessly taking all deposits with them without me needing to add any sort of pressure.
Although they clean well, I am not impressed with how wet they are. My sons bum area and boys bits are delicate and he occassionally suffers from nappy rash. He hasn't had any recently though using these wipes means that his skin is left quite wet and rather sticky. I find that I need to wait a good few minutes to put his pull up on otherwise it sticks to him and irritates him.
I also use wipes for cleaning Boos hands after eating. They remove any food effectively and quickly though still leave the wet, sticky feeling. Using these to freshen myself up hasn't impressed me for the same reasons and if I use them on my face, they leave a tingly feeling and dodgy scent which I don't like.
I often use baby wipes for dusting. I feel they grab the dust better than polish and a duster and this avoids the dust being dragged around the units in my livingroom and bedroom. The Boots ones work exceptionally well for this though these didn't. I gave my 4tier unit the once over the other day and the wetness was visible on the shelves promting me to dry them off before my snowglobes could return. I also woudn't use these all the time for furniture as they are expensive! They are also no good for cleaning leather sofas as they leave them sticky!
Overall not impressed as despite being Johnson's, I feel let down and won't be buying these wipes again unless in an emergency.
Thanks for reading :)
As many of you know, this summer I worked at a lot of music festivals. One of the essential camping things to take to these is baby wipes. This is mainly because of lack of shower facilities and therefore needing to feel clean.
With this in mind, I went to my local Tesco and picked myself up a pack of Johnsons baby skincare wipes for the occasion. They were on offer for 99p so a bargain really.
The pack was easy to distinguish, it was baby pink, with 'Johnsons baby' written on the front in a joined up yet clear font. To the right hand side of the pack was a photo of a happy looking baby. It also says on the front of the pack that its 'as mild as pure water to skin and eyes'. This is good as I don't want to be irritated anywhere when using them.
On the back of the pack, it has all the usual things such as ingredients and also states how many wipes there are in the pack. In this case there were 64. Opening the pack is simple; there is a clear pull back sticky strip that seals the wipes to stop them from drying out. This covers the slit that allows you to pull out a wipe one by one. The plastic sticks back down very well, even after many uses.
The wipes themselves proved to be very good. They smelt lightly perfumed, but nice and were wet enough to clean the dirt off me well. They are also good to wipe items clean should you need to whilst camping. Though I'm sure most people reading this review would use them for their proper use.. ie for babies!!
The only thing I didn't like about this product was that for carrying with a lot of other things, it was quite weighty so next time I think I will use a smaller pack as there were more than enough wipes for one festival at a time.
I will definitely be using these again in the future.
I dont normally buy Johnsons baby skincare wipes as i find they are one of the more expensive brands, im quite happy with Tesco wet wipes. But on one occasion when i went shopping to Tesco they had a box of Johnson wetwipes on sale for £5. There were 6 packs in the box and each pack had 64 wipes in, an absolute bargain that i couldnt leave in the shop.
The packets are pink and blue with a tear drop shape and the picture of a baby in the middle of the teardrop. There is the no more tears symbol on the packet along with the Johnsons Baby writing that is very recognizable. To open the packet, there is a clear, resealable, sticky tab. There is quite a strong scent to these wipes but in my opinion they do smell like Johnsons baby lotion but the smell is not overpowering. When taking the wipes out of the pack they come out one at a time and a tiny bit of the next wipe pops up with it ready for the next time you need one. This is a good thing as you dont have to go digging through the pack looking for the edge of the wipes. With some wipes more than one comes out at the same time and you find yourself trying to squeeze them back in the pack which is very annoying.
The wipes are thick and very strong and have slight ridges all along them. They are very soft and not too moist, for me they have just the right amount of moistness, enough to clean your babys skin but not enough to leave it wet. As you get further down a packet of wipes sometimes they can be soaking wet, but with the Johnsons wipes they have the same amount of moistness right through the packet of wipes.
These wipes are alcohol free and are enriched with a gentle lotion. Johnsons claim these are "as mild as pure water to skin and eyes," i would agree with this as i use these to wipe my sons face as well as his bottom and they never cause any kind of reaction or irritation.
I would recommend these wipes and would use them again but probably only when they are on offer.
I am terrible when I go shopping for baby products, I will buy the whole aisle. I never used to think it mattered what brand of baby wipes I used, I was wrong. I find that Johnsons are the best for clearing up messy nappies. I tried using some on my sons face the other day and he come up in a rash, but they are fine on his bum. I have to buy the fragrance free wipes as they are better for his skin. The other good thing is that I love using them to get rid of my makeup, they make my face look and feel refreshed for bed. They also smell yummy.
I can't really comment on the price much as it differs every shop I go in, but they definately will not brake the bank. Somerfield always seem to have buy one get one free on johnson's wipes, that might not be the case in all stores though.
A pack of wipes will last about a week in my house as my son is very messy, not sure if that is good or bad.
I would recommend this product to all mums as I have tried all different brands of baby wipes and I have to say johnson's are the best quality. I have also never heard a bad word said about any of johnson's baby products.
Definately a must buy!!!
I started using these 5 years ago just after my son was born, and have not stopped using them since. These wipes are soft and mild enough for delicate skin, they smell nice and keep babys skin soft and smooth, with my son who has sensitive skin it is a bonus. I have used these ever since, I have a stash in the car, and plenty in the house they come in handy not just for face and hand, but everyday uses, my mum started using them when my son was a few months old, when she found out how smooth they were, and has not stopped using them and always keeps a pack with her wherever she goes. I would recommend these wipes to all. Very useful for sensitive or delicate skin.
Some fool (uncle) bought Kieran a Real Army Camouflage Make Up Stick for his birthday. Some fool (father) took both my sons to bed last night without checking their persons for secreted forbidden contraband. Some fool (me) didn't make breakfast as soon she heard them wake and start playing in their bedroom this morning, but snuck an extra hour in bed instead. There isn't much Real Army Camouflage Make Up Stick left. It is on faces, hands, arms, legs, pyjamas, bedposts, walls, doors... You might think I got cross. You might think I launched into a parental lecture. You might even think I lost my temper as I viewed the carnage. Well, no so, so ner. I simply went downstairs to retrieve the box of Johnson's baby wipes. A few minutes, ten dirty little cloths and one load of laundry in the machine later, all was well and the soldiers barracked in the largest bedroom had metamorphosed into two miniature Gordon Ramseys of the Murphy kitchen. The conflict arena had shifted to the area of chocolate pancakes a la Zoe Page. Don't worry, I took my wipes with me. Johnson's baby wipes rock big. We've been using them for seven long years of parent-child hostilities and they've never failed in their role as mother's ultimate weapon. In the course of their long history of home guard they have: * Removed every single tiny trace of poo from two small (well, fat actually) bottoms, with a single wipe, without leaving any soreness or wetness, and without a single occurence of the dreaded nappy rash. * Removed every single tiny trace of poo from all the other places it spreads to - fatbaby thigh creases, tummies, backs, legs (yes, it does reach places other poo can't reach) without ever leaving mother smeared in the smelly stuff. * Removed various dinner remains from the faces, hands, legs, necks, arms, hair of two maniac toddlers quickly, efficiently and without tantrums or tears and
without leaving sore, flakey dry patches on what should be rosy cheeked junior cheeks. * Wiped the bottoms of two small toddlers potty-trained enough to use the loo, but careless of the Andrex-related hygiene which would get them a pass with honours in this particular junior rite of passage (gimme a brownie point for THAT pun please) * Removed a harrassed mother's dishevelled make up at half the price of a pack of wipes meant specifically for that purpose without leaving her skin horrible and not causing her eyes to sting. * Cleaned dried on Weetabix from the kitchen table, the dining room table, the high chair leg, the high chair tray, the splash mat and various can't-be-without-for-a-single-second toys without scratching it or ruining any finishes. * Rubbed carpets and removed tomato ketchup drip stains, gravy stains, washable felt tip marks, meal-coloured dribble splashes, tea, wine and even coffee spills. * Kept three computer screens and keyboards as clean and shiny as a new pin without making them static-y as hell. * And today, they've removed Real Army Camouflage Make Up from the arena of combat known as Conor and Kieran's bedroom. Versatile little chaps, ain't they? And in that time, they've also made everything they touched smell just grand too, especially recently, since they added the aroma of aloe vera and willowherb. Not only that but they've kept two delicate (ha!) bottoms from soreness and a mother's rapidly-wrinkling face from dry, flakey patches and soreness. What more could you want? I guess I should tell how much they are and what exactly you get for your money. Well, if you shop at Tesco a pack of 72 wipes will set you back £2.27 which is three pence each, but if you buy a twin pack then you'll pay £3.37 which is a mere two pence each. Each wipe is a small, stretchy, flexible piece of soft cloth which has been impregnated with John
son's baby lotion. I guess the little squares of superness are six or seven inches across, which sounds quite small, but isn't really small at all. Your first days of using them for their primary purpose of infant bottom-wiping will see you waste several wipes on one poo, but as you gain experience of holding two feet in one hand, the wipe in the other and the new nappy between your teeth, you'll find for the most part you need only one. Honest. An entire bedroom and two children coated in Real Army Camouflage Make Up took ten wipes to dispose of this morning, which I think is darn good. And that whole exercise didn't leave the environs soaking wet and needing drying, or with soapy smears; everywhere ended up lovely and shiny and new, thanks to those ten little squares of cloth. They smell yumptious, and don't contain lanolin, which is the ingredient often blamed for irritating sensitive baby skin and for that reason they work just fine on mummy's face as a make up remover - I even use them for taking off eye make-up with no ill effects - and the new addition of aloe vera has an added protective effect. Basically the moist cloths, impregnated with lotion, work like soap but very gently. They're not cheap nasty but wet paper towels that are overly astringent, they're soft, stretchy cloth with a gentle but efficient effect. Johnson's aren't the thickest baby wipes on the market - that honour would go to Huggies wipes in my experience - but they are the softest and most flexible, and I do think you get more wipe for your shekel for that reason. Their cleansing power is remarkable; they truly are the only things I know that can remove baked on Weetabix spills from a table top or high chair leg with the minimum of effort and not a surface scratch in sight. The only drawback that I can think of is that Johnsons, like most other baby wipes, aren't really bio-degradable so you can't flush them down the loo, and you h
ave to cope with the guilt of being part of this horrible throwaway generation in which we find ourselves living. I'm generally good about all that kind of thing though, and I think I'm allowed one small lapse of greenness, so there. Slightly more expensive, at two pence per wipe, than a paper version, Johnson's Wipes compare well in price to all the other brands on the supermarket shelf, even the own brands aren't much cheaper. And in comparison to proprietary make-up removing wipes such as Nivea, which clock up at an extortionate ten, twelve or even fourteen pence per cloth, they're a snip. And yes, you can use them for cleaning your computer screen, and keyboard too! Privates Murphy and Murphy are on extra parade duty tonight, by the way.
It's almost 3 and a half years since i last had to change a nappy. (thank God for small mercies!). However, I still buy Johnson's wipes just as regularly as I did when I was buying pampers. These wipes are very soft and are moistened by Johnson's baby lotion. They smell lovely and are great for many different things. We keep some in the downstairs toilets and the kids use them for wiping their hand s and faces with. I aslo have some in my bedroom. They are the most effective and gentle thing I have ever used for taking make-up off with. So much better for the skin than some chemical make-up remover. They leave skin smelling fresh and feeling really soft. Almost as soft as a baby's botty! Maybe that's the whole point. Compaired to other brands of wipes, they are well priced and in my opinion, much better in quality. I never travel without some in the car. Some wipes made for cleaning hands etc when out and about smell like acetone. They can also sting litle hands with cuts on them. With Johnson's wipes, you can be secure in the knowledge that they will never sting even the most gentle skin.
Last week I had a bit of a dilemma. I ran out of baby wipes. Arrgghh. Luckily they sell Johnsons here (under the wonderul name of Hr Penaten) so a quick trip to Schlecker followed and I was soon happy again. I used to use 'proper' facial cleansing wipes like Nivea and Garnier Synergie until I realised I was wasting my money. They cost maybe 4 pounds for 25 wipes and if you use them morning and night it really adds up. I'd watched the adverts for Johnson & Johnson baby lotion and seen how it it also suitable for removing make up and cleansing, and I figured that if the lotion worked for this then the wipes which contain the exact same lotion should aswell. Once I'd got over the initial embarrasement of explaining to my friends with whom I was shopping WHY I was buying baby wipes (no, I hadn't secretly given birth and nor was I about to) things went well. The wipes themselves are designed, as far as I can tell, for babies' bottoms, but don't let that put you off. They are gorgeous and soft, and much larger than the Nivea equivalent. They cleanse effectively without leaving behind any greasy residue, they are great at removing stage make up which as we know can be thick, and best of all, they're incredibly cheap. The last time I bought some they were on special offer, and I got 4 packs of 72 wipes for a total of 6 pounds. That's over 4 months supply for little more than a fiver - bargain! I've tried othe brands, like supermarket own (Tesco are the best, but only the quality version) and Boots own, but even though they are a few pence cheaper, they aren't as soft and nice and, well, the few pence extra is totally worth it. One thing I would recommend though is buying a dispenser, which itself comes full of wipes. It's far and away the easiest way to get at them one at a time as you just press down on the button and the lit pops up. Plus it keeps the other wipes nice and fresh and ready for the n
ext day of whenever. Once you've got a dispenser, you can just fill it up with the refil packs. Next time you're shopping, pop a packet in your trolley - they're totally worth it. (Price below is for a standard 72 wipe pack)
Johnson and Johnson Well here we go again on another product of Johnson and Johnson as I believe this well known and a long life term product used by billions Im sure will be used again and again and again for many years to come like as many products have came and gone as many a useful products have been tried and now long gone But good old Johnson and Johnson still hanging around like a good product that it is and wont let you down as I know its been there for my kids and so on and so forth.
For cleansing and moisturising. These wipes contain a unique Johnson's baby lotion to combine effective cleansing and long-lasting moisturisation.
