“ Brand: Morrisons / Type: Wipes „
I regularly shop for baby wipes as I use them for a variety of purposes. I tend to use them primarily for my dogs. Anyone with a pooch will know that their paws, bum, face and ears can get a bit dirty or smelly sometimes and a baby wipe does the trick. I also use baby wipes for myself, most often when I'm going on a long journey so that I can freshen up my hands and face as needed. I have no specific loyalty to any brand when it comes to this product and often just buy the cheapest brand. The latest brand I bought was these Morrisons own brand which were tantalisingly cheap compared to their branded rivals.
The product comes in a pack of 72 wipes. The packet is a plastic material with a cute picture of a blue elephant on the front along with the 'M Savers' (Morrisons own basic brand) logo. The back of the packet is printed with product information. This includes full ingredients, directions for use, suggestions for use, warnings, storage information, brand contact details and information about disposing of the product. Basically the printed information contains everything I need to know about the product.
The packet has a clear sticky label on the top of the packet which you can peel back to expose a hole. You can then pluck a wipe out of the hole. The clear label can then be resealed in order to keep the wipes moist inside. The design of the packet is okay but on one pack I bought the packet ripped as I first opened it meaning the wipes were permanently exposed and dried out. To retain the moisture in the wipes you also need to store them out of direct sunlight.
The fragrance free wipes measure 7 ½ inches by 6 inches and are quite thin in texture, They have a flecked look to them as though the material has been pulled thin and started to go into holes. They feel like a soft and fluffy cloth despite how thin they appear to be. When you rub them on your skin it feels just like using cotton wool.
The wipes are moist and infused with Aloe Barbadenis juice which is cool and refreshing. They dampen your skin but don't soak it. My skin dries quite quickly after using the wipes. My skin feels refreshed, cleaner and calmer.
I use the wipes on a number of things and they work well for every occasion. They are perfect for effectively removing make-up for instance and can completely remove all residue of dirt, oil and make-up products (including stubborn eye make-up) from the face. They are perfect for 'washing' sticky hands if you are stuck on a train or long bus ride. I use them to clean my pets and my dogs don't take too much offence to them as they are not perfumed. They are also handy for wiping up spills here and there if a sustainable cleaning cloth is not available.
These cost me 46p a packet and are some of the cheapest wipes available. They are a product I'll continue to use and buy and I would recommend them as they are effective, useful and give good value for money.

My kids are now quite grown up, the youngest one is 12, and therefore I should not need to buy baby wipes, but I do. A pack of wipes usually last me ages as I keep them in the car for sticky emergencies.
While I was shopping a couple of weeks ago a pack of Morrisons branded wipes caught my eye for 98p, there were other name branded wipes on offer for roughly the same price. These ones caught my eye as they have a resealable, hard lid. I thought the proper lid would keep my wipes moister for longer seeing as I usually have a pack for ages.
The pack is a nice mint green colour and tells us that it contains 80 fragranced, delicately scented, enriched with aloe vera and chamomile extract and dermatologically tested wipes. Unfortunately the packaging is not recyclable and the wipes should be binned with regular household waste after use and not flushed away.
Upon opening the hard lid there is a plastic, peelable seal, once this seal is peeled back I can reach the wipes. Once open I can smell the Aloe Vera, it is a nice, refreshing scent.
Each wipe pulls out very easily; it does not catch on the others in the pack. The wipes are quite thin and not quilted in any way. Each wipes is approximately the size of two sheets of toilet roll. The wipes are nice and moist and wipe easily around my hands leaving behind a slightly sticky residue. The residue dries up within a minute and leaves my hands looking clean, they don't feel as clean as they would if I had of washed them, but for removing a bit of dirt from my hands before picnicking or food debris after picnicking they are fine.
The scent left on my hands is nice and fresh and again I can only smell Aloe Vera. I do suffer with dermatitis on my hands occasionally and in the winter my hands can get dry and crack a little so I am happy to say that the wipes do not cause my hands to sting and do not seem dried out by occasional use of the wipes.
As these are baby wipes I should give an opinion on there use for babies, I personally would not use them as part of my nappy changing routine, they seem to thin and I can imagine that I would need plenty to achieve a nice clean bottom, therefore making them less economical then a name branded pack. I would be happy to clean my little ones sticky face (avoiding the sensitive eye area) and hands though as the wipes do seem gentle.
All things considered I think these are a good enough pack of wipes for less then a pound, the thing that attracted me to them over other wipes available in the £1 price range was the hard resealable lid and I am happy to say it does what it should, the wipes have remained moist after being open a couple of weeks.
Would I purchase these if I had a small child in need of nappy changing? No, I don't feel that they are thick enough to do a good enough job on delicate little bottoms. Would I purchase them again for me? Yes, they are good enough to keep in the car for hand and face refreshing on days out.
Thank you for reading.
Morrison's value baby wipes!!! Now this is a product I feel very strongly about! I will add that in previous reviews it has mentions the wipes are bright yellow and 20p that sadly isn't the case any more :( They are now in a white packet with some blue writing on and are at the extortionate price of nearly 50p!! haha
I still continue to buy these wipes after the up in price and do feel they have improved! Of a mother of two children under 4 I use them for absolutely everything and always have a couple of packs on me! I feel since the up in price the wipes are thicker and not as soggy! (the yellow pack always use to seem to damp especially when you would get to the end of a pack) They are a lot better and still very good value for money with all the dirty bums, mucky faces, ice cream and chocolate, and of course the skirting boards! Can't fault these for the price I use a lot of wipes and probably go through 3 packets a week. But I overuse!
The problems I have found with these wipes is the seal! The little plastic flap to cover the packet and stop them drying out if you do not push down it looses it's sticky very quickly! I also find it is hard when in a rush or trying to hold down your 7 month old to stop him rolling off to get the amount you would like out! I probably have quite a lot of wastage just for pulling one out and the whole packet coming out! I can't say I have really compared this product to much else as since my daughter was about a month old (she's now 3) I have used these wipes and would never use anything else!!
I bought these wipes the other week. As I have mentioned in a couple of other posts I have recently joined a Gym. So far I have not decided to venture into the showers there - but this is because I go straight home after using the Gym and I just don't see the point in getting out my clothes and changing into fresh ones when I can go home all yukky feeling and go into my own shower therefore not having to cart all this stuff along with me. Although I just go from locker room to car to house it may sound odd but I just like to give myself a little wipe in places with some wipes so that I don't feel so sweaty.
These are the 1st wipes that I have tried and it was the price that caught my eye. This pack comes in a size of 72 wipes (which I think is a strange size of pack) and this cost me 48p. Price seemed alright and I thought if I wasn't so keen on them then it wasn't a fortune to have lost (and i'd surely be able to make the money back on here lol!). These are the budget brand of Wipes from Morrisons.
The pack is alright. Nothing fancy looking and just a plastic pack with a bit in the middle that you tear open to get the wipes out and then seal back again to keep the moisture in the wipes. I am about halfway down the pack and although I feel that the wipes have perhaps got a bit drier than they were they are still moist enough.
The Wipes are quite thin and not the thickness I remember from more brand named ones - but then again these aren't brand named priced. 1 wipe is large enough when it unfolds and I just use a couple of these the wipe at the bottom of my back, nect and hairline at my forehead to freshen up. There is a slight scent to these, but it is very faint. It's hard to say what the scent is but it is just a fresh scent.
These are alright and do the job but they are definitely budget and are that little bit scratchy feeling if you rub quite hard. They are ok I guess if you are on a budget and should be worth a try. I don't think I will buy these again once they are finished, but I am happy enough to use the pack up.
Whether you have children or not, chances are that like me you'll buy baby wipes. I use them to freshen my hands, if my feet look grubby I wipe them over with some so I don't get dirty marks on my bedding and allsorts!
These I recently bought in Morrisons cos when I saw you got 72 wipes for 46p I thought that was a pure bargain, providing they were good of course lol.
These come in a large white blue and white plastic packet with a see through resealable section (where you pull the wipes out of) to the middle, centre of it and on the front we are told that they are M 'Savers' 72 Fragrance Free Baby Wipes and there is a picture a light blue elephant on there. On the back of the pack we are told a bit about the product, directions for use are given as well as the ingredients being listed and contact details for Morrisons are given. Its a strong enough packet, one wipe does come out at a time and the resealable section stays sticky too so they stay fresh and once opened they should be used within 6 months.
The wipes themselves are white in colour and made of a rather thin material, so thin in fact that although made of material you can see through it still. They are really not very big at all and oblong in shape and moist and not one bit drippy. These are meant to be unfragranced though do have a very light and slightly chemically fragrance to them.
In use they don't fall apart or rip or anything and they don't agitate my sensitive skin. They do however leave a slight residue on my skin that feels a bit unnatural though to be fair that does eventually wear off.
They are dermatologically tested so are suitable for babies too but having been a nursery nurse and a nanny in my time I wouldn't think these were large or thick enough for nappy changing!
Simply they are ok. They're nothing special but for my little jobs great but if your prefer top class quality and great feeling wipes then you'll have to pay more I'm afraid as these really are economy all the way.
Only available in Morrisons stores.
Despite being childless, there is usually a packet of baby wipes in my shopping trolley every couple of weeks. Why? For my face of course! I use baby wipes to take off make up, or just to clean my face at the end of the day. I have been known to use them to give myself a quick freshen up if I am just nipping out early, to save time by skipping a shower until I get home again. I generally buy own brands, and decided to give these a go when I saw they were only 18p.
They come in a rather sunny and cheerful bright yellow packet, with the usual small opening and resealable sticky tab (which is pretty good at re-sticking so long as the pack is smoothed completely flat). The pack has "Morrisons Value 72 baby wipes fragrance free" emblazoned across the front. That's right. 72 baby wipes for 18p. How could I pass this by?
Well, unfortunately I probably will pass them by in the future. On opening the pack, I could smell a nice clean fresh smell which was very agreeable, but when I pulled out a wipe I was a little disappointed to find them quite dry. I like a nice moist wipe, it feels much more like it's doing something against your skin! These wipes are also not particularly easy to get out, and often more than one comes out at once. If you use your other hand to hold the rest of the wipes to ensure only one is removed (not easy for a mum with her hands full I can imagine) it comes out really stretched, which I guess would be irritating if you wanted to wipe a bum with it. This isn't an issue for me using it on my face as both my hands are free but if I had a pair of baby ankles in one hand I would not be smiling.
Using them on my face does not irritate my skin, but they do leave it feeling a bit tight. They are not overly harsh or rough though, and even going over my eye area (I know, not recommended!) doesn't cause any stinging. I have found though that they are not quite up to removing a couple of coats of mascara, they're just not wet enough. They do remove all traces of my face powder though (I don't wear foundation) and leave my skin looking clean; the main difference is, where I would usually only need a single wipe to clean my face (apart from when removing eye makeup), I need two of these.
They're not that thick, though I wouldn't expect them to be for 18p. But when you hold one up, you can clearly see through it and they look sort of holey. This is probably why they're not very moist, there's not enough material to hold sufficient moisture. This also makes me wonder about their absorbency in terms of baby waste! Even us childless folks know what that can be like.
I like to balance everything out though, to work out what truly is the best value in terms of price. So if 72 of these wipes (36 face-cleans) were better value than 36 of a thicker, wetter wipe, then I may stick with the cheaper ones. But in this instance I would rather pay a little more for a better, softer and more moist wipe as I feel that they do the job better. I want to stress though that this is partly a personal feeling, as like I said earlier I like to feel the wetness on my skin before it evaporates, as I feel cleaner. I don't get that so much with these. They do remove dirt though.
I will happily use the rest of the pack, but when I next need to stock up I will look for a special offer or will just buy the non-budget own brand.
These come in yellow packs of 72 wipes and cost 20p per pack, available from Morrisons supermarkets. They may not look pretty from the packaging, and to some Mums this may be a slight deterrent to trying them out, but I really do recommend that you give them a go! I had been using the expensive brands and once my daughter became messy enough to get through up to ten wipes in a nappy change, I started to get resentful about spending so much money on something as essential as wipes. I have tried a comparable brand (Sainsburys basics wipes) but these just have the leading edge of the two brands, for elasticity of the material and for moistness (slightly better on both counts). About the wipes; they are not thick like the expensive brands, rather, they are thin, if you hold them up to the light they are like lace curtains! But no, you do not get matter seeping through them when you wipe (I am trying to be delicate with my description!). They are nice and strong, they are not rough, and they are perfectly moist. They have a very delicate scent if you smell them up close, a sort of lotion scent (not perfume). My daughters skin is reactive to some products so I class her as sensitive skin, but these wipes do not cause any irritation to her. The best thing of course is that at that price, you can use a fistful without feelings of money guilt!
These are also useful for other baby jobs such as wiping hands, although I acknowledge that the thicker, more expensive wipes have many advantages over these for wiping hands and faces. The Value wipes do still do the job but maybe not quite so well unless you use two or three.
I don't need to mention they make great general cleaning wipes for around the house!
I recently bought the Morrisons baby wipes when I was out and about and had run out of my usual (significantly more expensive)brand. I was really surprised at the quality, considering that they only cost me 17p for a single pack. The wipes are soft, reasonably sized and easy to get out of the pack. There is a really handy tab to re-seal them after use. The wipes are really moist and have not dried out as some of the other brands have a tendency to do once the pack is open. I have to say that I was aprehensive that the wipes may cause nappy rash or other skin irritaiton but my son has shown no signs of this and I have been using them now for two months. Although the packaging is really basic, this is a brilliant buy. I will be using this brand from now on. It is a quality product at a brilliant price.
I used johnsons baby wipes all the time with my first daughter I tried out huggies baby wipes which were very rough and felt like sand paper. So I tried pampers wipe which seamed to rip too much for my liking so never bought them again. I was shopping in morrisons and remembered that we need baby wipes so I went looking for johnsons but there were none left so I thought ill just get morrisons own brand till i can get johnsons. I got home and when I used them I barely even noticed they werent johnson they were soft and gentle there was only one difference i found to these and johnsons and that was they were slightly thinner. I kept on buying these wipes from then on. They cost 17p and are great value for money. So after i had my next child I used them from birth and she is 3 months old now and they have never cause a rash or redness.
This is a review for the value version of this product, which comes in a bright yellow pack, and costs 20p.
As a mum of two young kids, i have been using baby wipes as an easy changing time solution for the past 4 years. I know i probably should find a more environmentally friendly option, but when you are dealing with a grotty nappy on a wriggly child, it is more pleasant all round to grab a disposable wipe to be quick and efficient.
Now my littlest is 2 and a half, most of the time his skin is not that sensitive to changing brands unless he is suffering from nappy rash. So what do i look for in a wipe. Well, lets be really honest. Price is a huge factor. I also look at how damp the wipes are, and how well the pack reseals. Nothing worse than finding your last few wipes are really dry and not up to the job.
So, one day, browsing in Morrisons baby aisle and conscious that i had 2 kids in nappies and my budget wasn't stretching to accomodate, i spotted these and realised there were some huge potential savings. Big brand packs can be a couple of pound a pack. Shop own brands like the boots ones i used to buy on offer - 3 for £3. So these at 20p, and you can see why i picked a pack up to try.
The pack is bright yellow in appearance and screams out in black writing that it is a value purchase. There is then a white oval on the front of the pack telling you the pack contains 72 baby wipes which are fragrance free. Good start as i am not keen on the scented ones as they are all a bit floral and sickly, particularly when the nappy contents are also rather aromatic. They turn my stomach. The pack has one of those resealable tabs that you need to make sure stick back down when you are done or the whole pack dries out. I find on this pack the tab is pretty efficient. Other cheaper versions have lost some of the stick before i get down to the bottom of the pack. Now if i can only train my husband to operate this simple system then life would be smashing.
The actual wipes are white in colour, and are interlinked in the pack so when you pull the one at the top the next one starts to follow. Each one is rather damp. I find this useful, although if you want to apply cream after the change then it leaves the skin quite moist and then it is hard to smear the cream on properly. A consideration if trying to treat nappy rash - personally i would upbrand in this situation, particulary if the skin is broken.
The wipes seem to me a little smaller than some others i have used. Might just be my perception. They measure 21x15cm which is adequate. I find i use 2 to 3 wipes per change, so on the changes i do per day, a pack lasts about 4-5 days. 40p per week for wipes is a bargain.
I'm also not scared to use them for a quick hand/face spruce up, and i even sometimes pinch one or two to give the toilet a quick wipe round. (Never flushing it down the loo though as they don't break down like wipes meant for the toilets.)
Even if you only use them at home it is possible to save a fortune by down branding to these wipes. For the job they do, you can't go wrong really. I am going to give them 4 stars, knocking one off for the level of moisture which some people will not like i am sure. I can live with it.
With having three children I often have a look around for a cheaper alternative wipe. I go through many baby wipes not only as I have three children in nappies but also as I use them for cleaning up after them I easily go through 1 pack of wipes every two days so it can be expensive business. When I seen the Morrisons value wipes at 23 pence I could not believe it even if it was just for the cleaning up after the children it would save me 60 pence per packet!
The wipes come in a yellow and wipe packet and for 23 pence we are getting 72 fragrance free wipes. It is very simple packaging all we are told on the back are the ingredients and that they are dermatologically tested. They have a small oval label to pull open to reveal the wipes which is one of my problems. To open them I have to put a little force into pulling the seal and unfortunately on both of the packets I have tired so far its came completely off the packet. Which means when I try to attach it again it just falls back off. Now for me this is not a problem as I say we go through wet wipes unbelievably fast but for anyone keeping them for any longer than a few days I'm afraid the wipes would just dry up.
Once I started to use the wipes I was pleasantly surprised. Each wipe came out one by one rather than clumping together and the wipes themselves were OK. They were not too thin and just about moist enough to get things done. My daughter has Eczema so I do not like to experiment with things that can set her off again so I did not dare to use them on her hand and face as this is where the problems seem to exist. However I used them on her bottom and had no problems at all they worked as well as any other wipe that I use. I also used them for general cleaning and again no difference to any other wipe that I buy.
I understand you get what you pay for but these wipes really seem to be good value for money. Other than the lid issue everything else with them seems to be just fine. There is no reason to sing their praise and none to make them unusable they are simply an OK wipe. I will continue to use them but will use my usual brand to clean my children's bottoms, face and hands.
Baby wipes - the essential product of every parent! I have a pack in MissD's room, a pack in the dining room, a pack in the car and another pack always gets slipped into my bag when we're out and about. So all in all, baby wipes can be an expensive business!
So when I saw these wipes in my local Morrisons for about a quid, I was quick to pick them up! You can also get three packs for £2.70, and each pack has about 80 wipes. The wipes are enriched with aloe vera and chamomile extract, are dermatalogically tested and hypoallergenic. So not bad for the price.
The pack is a nice pale blue colour and has a little plastic lid that clips shut, which is great to keep out mischievous little fingers (anyone else caught their baby or toddler pulling wipe after wipe out of the pack?). The lid has a small illustration of a baby on it, but other than this the packaging is quite plain and simple. The first time you open the pack there is also a sticky tab under the lid which peels off, so the wipes inside are always fresh and moist.
The first thing you notice on pulling back the tab is the lovely fresh smell of the wipes. Although not over-powering, the smell reminds me of fabric conditioner and the scent of freshly laundered clothes. This is definitely an appropriate smell for baby products, and makes nappy changes a little more bearable!
As these wipes are cheaper than many other brands they are, as you may expect, a little thinner than some others. Having said that, they are thick enough, I think, and never tear or rip. For me, they do a perfect job of cleaning up mucky hands, faces and bottoms!
Who ever said that Baby Wipes had to be just for babies. I have not got a baby but I am a fan of the wipes. They are extremely useful in all manner of situations. Usually my wipes come from Tesco or Boots, but we do have a Morrisons and I have tried their brand too. For a pound you can get a tub of eighty odd wipes, which should see you through a couple of months.
The packaging is straight forward enough and accessing the wipes is easy too. The wipes pull away with ease and they don't tear in the process or get stick together. I did also notice that level of moisture retention in the wipes was pretty impressive.
The wipes do come with a certain smell. It is that baby smell, a cross between baby oil and talcum powder. They smell fresh, they smell enchanting and you won't suffer from irritated noses using them. The wipes are smooth enough to use on faces. I took a pack with me on holiday and found them useful for removing the last traces of suntan lotion and grime at the end of the day.
The wipes will show the stuff they collect, which is most satisfying. You can not re-use them, so best scrunch and chuck away. I have also used them as mini wipes for cleaning the interior of my car, along hard to reach areas and the dashboard. I have also used them for doing skirting boards in the house. Dry dusters don't always collect all dirt, but wet wipes do and they leave that nice smell too, which furniture polish does not have.
Obviously you can use them on baby's and they would be ideal for childrens' picnics and messy pups. Handy to have in a handbag or a desk drawer and a wipe goes quite a long way.
*** Review of Morrisons Fragranced Baby Wipes - not the value wipes ***
I usually find myself buying leading brands when it comes to baby wipes (Johnsons and Pampers mainly) but am not particularly loyal to them and often try out new and different wipes.
Recently whilst shopping in Morrisons I picked up a pack of 80 Morrisons fragranced baby wipes, so here goes...
The wipes come in a light blue packet, with a picture of a cute animated baby on the front.
They look unisex and although they are quite basic, they also look quite nice.
The best part of the packet is that it has a plastic lid. The lid can be opened when you need to get wipes out and closed when you have finished with them - this keeps the wipes moist and is very handy. The wipes are also easy to dispense from the packet.
The only downside is that the packaging is not recyclable (and the wipes aren't recyclable and cannot be flushed).
When I brought these wipes they were on offer for just £1.00. I believe they are usually priced at £1.07.
This is brilliant value for money for a pack of 80 decent wipes, especially since leading brands generally cost £2.00-£2.50 for a pack of around 60 wipes!
There is also a sticker on the front of the wipes which states '3 for £2.70' - an offer that I will be taking advantage of next time I visit Morrisons no doubt...
The packaging clearly states these are fragranced wipes. If you don't like fragranced wipes then go for the Morrisons unfragranced wipes instead because these are very smelly indeed.
One of the things I like best about these wipes is the smell, they smell lovely in my opinion. Not chemically or soapy but very florally and nice. This is probably due to the fact the wipes are enriched with baby lotion.
They make everything smell nice that they touch and unlike some heavily fragranced wipes they don't bring up any rashes or bad reactions on any of my family's skin, most importantly my little girl who I use these wipes on every five minutes.
To my suprise not only do these wipes smell nice but they are very moist too.
They stay totally moist inside the packet and will remain moist unless you leave the lid open, in which case the top one or two wipes generally dry out.
They tend to get rid of all manner of grime very well and I am very pleased with their performance.
The only real downside with these wipes is they are not very thick and if I were too wipe up anything very stubborn there is a fair chance that these wipes would split. I usually fold them in half (to double up the thickness) before using them and this seems to solve the problem.
-On the skin-
The wipes are enriched with aloe vera and chamomile extract and are also dermatologically tested and hypoallergenic which is reassuring. They are gentle on the skin and aren't sticky.
-What I use them for-
I mainly use Morrisons Fragranced Baby Wipes to clean up my 3 year old - most commonly her hands and face after eating. I also use them to clean her up when she goes to the toilet. I have also used them on my own face on numerous occassions, usually to remove makeup which they seem to do quite well.
I tend to use them alot for household purposes too, such as mopping up spillages etc.
Like most wipes they are very handy to have around the house or in your bag for out and about.
I recommend you give them a try - if you like them, great, and if you don't, well you've only wasted just over a pound!
I shop in Morrisons on a semi regular basis is it is the nearest "big" type supermarket, so I walk down with my baby in the pram. I thought I would try the baby wipes as I was running low. They are reasonably priced at 4 for £3. They are fragrance free, enriched with aloe vera baby lotion and chamomile extract and are dermatologically tested and hypoallergenic. They come in packs of 80 and seemed like a good buy.
On the back of the plastic packaging which is non recyclable, it states that the Aloe Vera, Chamomile and baby lotion help to protect against the causes of nappy rash and soothe baby's delicate skin. I did not however find this to be the case. After about a week of using them, I noticed some very sore spots appear on my baby's bottom. They also were not consistent. Some of the wipes were very dry, and some of them were very wet even when the plastic cover / lid had been closed properly. They also did not always come out one at a time.
They are certainly not the worst wipes that are avaliable to us, but as a mum, I would not reccomend these baby wipes as there are much better ones for sale.
