Jackson Reece Baby Wipes Review*

Hi everyone,

So as you may or may not know, I am a Mummy. One of the things us parents have to do on a daily bases to fulfil our children's care needs is, change their nappy! That's if they are still at this stage of course. As its happens my beautiful daughter Darcie is, she is 3 months old.

Now you probably think 'a wipe I a wipe, get over yourself Tasha?!' Trust me when I say, when dealing with a poo-splosion a wipe is not just a wipe! This is the ultimate test any wipe will have to go through! I'll spare the details! I'm sure anyone who has dealt with a poo-splosion will be with me on this.

There is so many things to think about when choosing and using a wipe like. I've tried loads of brands of wipes. There's been ones that are too wet, too dry, too rough and even ones that aren't strong enough and rip when trying to get them out of the packet. I'm sure as a parent you would have had at least one of these problems.

The lovely people at Jackson Reece sent me some of there wipes to review. Jackson Reece have won the Mother & Baby Gold Award (many times), the Tips Best award (for eco-friendly, Tips best of the best, unscented), Practical pre-school awards (gold and silver) and the Practical pregnancy & parenting award (bronze and gold) for their wipes and honestly, I can understand why.

A bit about Jackson Reece:

'Every baby's skin is so delicate, it makes sense to choose the most natural wipes you can. Designed by the experts at Jackson Reece, our range of natural and herbal baby wipes are made from natural ingredients and contain no nasty chemicals, making them ideal for use even on babies with eczema. That's why we can say with confidence that we're kinder by nature.'
-Jackson Reece 

Below are the 3 types of wipes Jackson Reece sell.

children, babies, herbal, natural, nose nuzzles

From Left to right:
  • 'Kinder by Nature- Herbal'
  • 'Kinder by Nature- Nose Nuzzles''
  • 'Kinder by Nature- Natural'
Before I go into talking about the wipes themselves, I want to make a comment on the packaging. When I started to use the wipes on Darcie, I showed her the packaging. Darcie looked at the fun, bright and very relevant design on the packet and started to smile. Packaging is Darcie approved, so lets find out how the wipes faired.

To start with I used the 'Kinder by Nature Natural' wipes. To give a brief description of these wipes they are 100% biodegradable, 100% alcohol and paraben free, 100% unscented, 100% fragrance & perfume free and have certified organic soothing Aloe Vera. You get 64 wipes in a packet.

Darcie's delicate little bottom can go a little red sometimes so I was curious as to how these would go down. My one main test was the strength of the wipe. When I pulled it out of the packet, there was no breakage. I proceeded to give a little tug on the wipe. Nothing. No rip, no tear, nothing. I thought this can't be right, how can something so natural be so strong? So that was it, I tugged as hard as I could and all I ended up with was a misshapen wipe. I even handed a wipe to my boyfriend (who is significantly stronger then me) to have a pull on and all he ended up with was a misshapen wipe to. Brilliant, a wipe that doesn't break! These wipes are also have the right amount of wetness to them as well, not too dry and not too wet. Another point to add is they are not rough, they are just the right material to be able to clean. Perfect! The initial test earned full points! Now to see how they cleaned Darcie's bottom up. We use Sudocrem (other creams are available) on Darcie's bottom and some wipes can take ages to clean up the left over bits up, but not these. In a couple of wipes the left over Sudocrem was no more! These wipes are very effective at cleaning up a dirty nappy! Also, after a day or so using them I noticed a complete difference. Darcie's little bit of red on her bottom had pretty much cleared up! The pack lasted about 3 to 4 days. This is probably due to my OCD and having to use an even number of wipes each time, even though it isn't always necessary.

Next up is the Herbal packet. These wipes are 100% biodegradable, 100% alcohol and paraben free, 100% perfume & fragrance free, with organic ingredients and hypoallergenic and have certified organic Aloe Vera and aromatherapy & Ylang Ylang.

Children, Babies, wipes


I am still using this packet but so far all is good! The wipes are exactly the same as the natural wipes above strong, they're not rough, are not too wet and not too dry and clean really well! Another thing I will mention about both packets is that I personally haven't had any problem with going to get one wipe out and ending up with 6. They also break away from each other well. These wipes come out one sometimes two at a time. This is another great aspect for me. There's nothing worse then trying to clean up your baby and having to deal with a trail of wipes coming out and you can't seem to break one or two off. Again, Darcie's redness is yet to come back.

Last but by no means least, the Nose nuzzles. These are natural saline wipes for stuffy noses, 100% alcohol and paraben free, 100% unscented, fragrance and perfume free and have soothing Aloe Vera and calming camomile.

Any parent will know that a sneeze or that one boogie that looks yucky can happen at any time. Darcie has the latter. These are so handy just to pop in you handbag or the changing bag when going out or even for when you're indoors. I can imagine for older children as well they would be great for teaching them how to wipe their noses affectively. Using these to clean up the sneeze streams will be 100% and not using tissue that leave sore red marks and an irritated, dry nose. They're also great for cleaning up little bits of milk sick or for when you are weaning or on solids, cleaning mucky faces.

Over all they are definitely a product I would purchase and will probably be my wipe of choice from now on. Whilst browsing as well I also found they have a moisturiser and hand spray! I will be trying these sometime soon!

The wipes are avaliable from Amazon, Tesco, Kiddicare, Waitrose and Boots.

If you have any questions feel free to ask.
