Simple Me to You Baby Wipes
Advantages: Great price if you know where to buy them
This is a review of Simple Me to You Baby Wipes, which after trying almost every brand on the market I can say are my favourite wipes. It's sad when you have a favourite brand of baby wipe but I suppose it's all part of being a parent. I went through a phase of buying store's own brand but realised I was using five times as many to clear up mess or change a nappy so it was a bit of a false economy.
What are they?
The baby wipes come in packs of 80 wipes and are made by the well known facial cosmetics company Simple. They are a green pack and for some reason, the brand Simple have teamed up with the me to you tatty teddy bears for some branding on this packet. I once thought they might be a limited edition but I have been buying them for more than a year now.
The pack claims to have no tears formula which is important as we use these wipes to clean hands and faces as well as for nappy changes. They are alcohol free and hypoallergenic and suitable for even newborn babies. A note here. I would follow the midwives advice on this one and only use cotton wool or flannels with warm water for cleaning newborns. We did this for the first couple of months with our baby and she has beautiful skin. I tried not to use any products on her for as long as possible. The pack says that the wipes have natural chamomile goodness to sooth baby's delicate skin.
So why are they my favourite?
I'm not bothered about the packaging, so don't think I've fallen for the tiny tatty teddy's charms. Green's not really my colour either so it wasn't that! The pack uses the same clear sticker seal to keep the wipes fresh. I grabbed my first pack of these wipes in a bit of an emergency moment, my daughter was sick in the shop down herself and I had left the bag in the car so I grabbed a pack (in Home Bargains) and used them then and there and then paid for the opened pack at the till. I was hooked from then on. What I found about these wipes is that they are nice and moist and really do a good job cleaning up. I tend to only use one on face and hands and a couple for a nappy change (unless it's a really bad one). When we get towards the end of the pack we decant the remainder into a travel wet wipes box (for keeping handy in the highchair basket) and get a new pack out for the bag so we don't run out.
I have seen a pack of these baby wipes priced as much as £3.99 in some supermarkets but there is no way I'd pay that! We get all ours from Home Bargains for 99p a pack and I am happy with that price.
We do still use other brands like Johnson's but the Simple wipes are my favourite for keeping in the changing bag when we are out and about. They stay very moist (but not dripping wet) and have no strong smell and seem to suit our daughter's skin.
Summary: My best find yet in the baby wipe market
