You get what you pay
Among all the brands that I have tried, this is one that has made nappy time bearable. The wipes are thick enough that wouldn't tear during pulling. The moisture is just right and comfortably soft for my bub's skin. It's easy to grab from the container. Sometimes though I experienced some of its components like thin threadlike materials being left in my bub's behind. And yes, it's not eco-friendly.
My favourite out of all brands.
As a FTM I bought every single known brand of baby wipes in the market. Huggies, BigW,Curash,red nose and J&J you name it. Out of them all this is my favourite. I got the pull out tub, it's so easy to use and pull out which makes my life so much easier. The wipe itself is thick and wet enough(not too dry nor wet). It is a bit more expensive than your other brands but it worth every scent. The bear design just adds that cuteness to it. Absolutely loved it. I usually buy the 384 pack to refill the tub and I usually stock up when it's on special in the supermarket.
The good: these wipes have just the right moisture level, are a good size and the dispenser box makes it easy to grab them in a hurry. The travel case is convenient too.
The bad: they tend to 'pill' when wiping and can leave tiny bits of wipe on bub's behind, sometimes tear when being removed from the travel case (not the main dispenser) and are not Eco-friendly.
Thick and practical
Tried many brands of baby wet wipes and Huggies is the best so far: thick, gentle on the skin, easy to pull just one from the packet (with most brands you pull one out and end up getting 3 or more... When changing nappies it's almost impossible to have both hands free so that is very inconvenient plus you end up wasting them...)
You get what you pay for.
Used to be awesome. now just as bad as the others
cant comment on allergies as luckily bub is ok with anything, but can comment on quality. they used to have very thick big wipes that would do the job in one quick motion, no matter what the mess was. you'd only need a couple of them. maybe that was the issue? now (may-june 2-14) they have a "new" range, which is thin and terrible. you end up using 10 hen you only used 2 before, and end up with poop on your hands half of the time. very disappointing. will change brands.
the old ones
thin, bad quality
Waste of money
I'm a FTM, and after purchasing a few bulk packets before baby arrived I found them to be quite dry, ripping apart and worse if all giving my poor baby ugly nappy rash! I so ce purchased curash wipes, sudocream and benapathrn ointment and the rash had gone. It's very upsetting but you will be suprised the difference with curash wipes
Goes on sale often
Ripps, dries. Nappy rashes
I don't have sensitive skin but this is the first time I have ever had a reaction to a product. Huggies wipes gave me dermatitis on my fingers and it's only getting worse! I will be changing from these wipes ASAP. Besides that I had no other issue with them, they done the job but I am worried about the ingredients in these wipes.
Gave me dermatitis
you have sensitive skin. Huggies wipes gave me dermatitis on my fingers. At first i thought it was something else since i have used huggies products before but i picked up the wrong wipes and the dermatitis started to go away.
Also noticed that they seem to rip easily when pulling them out of the packet.
Gave me dermatitis.
Good wipes, but hard to pull out of the pack at times!
I have been using the Huggies unscented wipes for a while now and for convenience, I have been buying the 80 pack. Love these wipes, no fragrance, delicate on bub's skin and they are quite thick which makes the cleansing easier (and I don't have to use too many wipes at once). They are a little pricey, but they do last quite some time. One thing that I cannot stand - sometimes it's hard to get a wipe out of the pack and it can be frustrating especially if you are a bit in a hurry! Sometimes the wipe breaks in half, other times it sticks to the ...others and you end up taking out 5 wipes at once. Not a big deal as it does not happen every time, but when it does, it's annoying! Thick, good for sensitive skin, large in size A little pricey, sometimes it's hard to get a wipe out of the pack easily
Good but there's better!
I stayed with huggies frag free for the first couple months with my newborn given they have great nappies so figured wipes would be the best. I was loving them (big size, nice design, little wastage in bulk pack with unnecessary packets when refilling huggies box dispenser) until I was gifted a box of another brand (curash frag free).. Then the flaws were highlighted - they are papery so often tear the corners trying to get out of refill dispenser and somehow the bulk pack disappears much quicker than curash so I must need more to clean up mes...ses (must be related to the glide of wetness). I've toggled back between both brands couple times when on special but won't anymore due to price - they are good but not my number one anymore. In my recent search for the ultimate but budget friendly wipe, unexpectantly woolworths select frag free is identical to huggies frag free as they are large, papery with similar cute embossed design - now I'd consider buying that instead as they seem the same. Large wipes, cute design Texture papery so can tear, expensive, go through pack too quickly
Save yourself the bother
I havent tried these wipes before and decided to when I was out of stock of what I normally use. Scent was Cumcumber and aloe vera - that was ok. Will never buy these again! They are absolutely horrid! When you have a child covered in poo and only one hand to access wipes while you hold them still so they dont spread it everywhere - these are not the wipes for you! They are IMPOSSIBLE to remove from the dispenser without two hands. They stick together and worst of all they TEAR APART. To get one out before I had to dig deep and grab a pile of ...them which will now have to be thrown out as they will dry up. Total waste of money. Dont bother with them. Not one good thing to say Hard to get out of the dispenser. Wipes literally break apart as you remove them from the dispenser.
Better brands out there!
I really hate Huggies wipes as they are almost impossible to dispense one full cloth at a time. As previous reviews have mentioned, they rip very easily when pulling from pack leaving loose fibres. And if they don't rip it's because you've accidentally pulled out 5 at once meaning you go through the pack faster. Sometimes they get stuck and when you're using one hand you have shake the pack whilst holding the wipe its all very awkward. I also find they don't feel as smooth on a baby's bottom. Unfortunately these seem to be the only brand easily available everywhere.
Too hard and awkward to pull wipes out
Love the thickness
I love the thickness of Huggies Baby Wipes. I also love all the different options available from refills, to boxes, to travel size. I use the frangrance free wipes and buy bulk to make it cheaper. It is a shame about the price, but buying in bulk makes a big difference, just the initial outlay of money can deter some.
Shame about the price, but I just buy in bulk to make it cheaper. Keep an eye out for when they are on sale too
Super thick but super dry
Okay so they are super thick and have super cute embossed designs on them and smell lovely. But for me the purpose of the wipe is to get rid of poop and so I need it actually wet because sometimes that poop is stuck on pretty good and I just find Huggies wipes are just too dry.
Thick, smell lovely, doesn't cause rashes on my bub
Just not wet enough, expensive
i love them
I absolutely love huggies wipes!! I love the thickness of them there like a cloth! I love how there larger then most brands, not overly moist and grabs yuckies really well!! At first when i had my son i didnt like them but babys poohs change ... we buy the factory seconds from cheapie stores so there not overly priced for me but in the supermarket and department stores the price is sky rocket
But there not for everyone every mum is different !
Thickness, larger than most brands. awesome on sick bubbys
expensive in the supermarket and department stores the price is sky rocket ... cheap stores get factory seconds for like $2 a pack
It's ok, not worth for price
Wipes were easily torn and so easier to save money by tearing into half. However they were thin and dry and were quite rough on baby's skin. Considering the amount of poo a newborn does, this wipe isn't soothing at all. I will not purchase again unless I have no choice or there is a huge sale resulting in huge savings.
Can tear into half easily
Drying and rough
Only if I'm desperate
As I'm a Huggies diaper fan, I thought the wipes would be great as well. Sadly, no. It was actually my husband that first complained about the harshness of these wipes - I was still in first baby fog! They did the job but left baby's bottom a bit red. I only use the sample packs in our nappy bag now when I've run out of Curash wipes.
Being a first time Mum, you want quality for your money. I was not impressed with the wipes once we got home from the hospital. They tend to rip coming out of the pack and leave fibres on Bub. Not ideal. I switched back to the brand the hospital used once we used the original pack up.
I do like the hard plastic case from the original pack I bought, but now refill with other wipes
Fibres left behind, more expensive, rip easily
More expensive than most and don't feel it's justified.
With 2 children aged 2yo and 5mo, I have tried many brands of baby wipes. Huggies are one of the most expensive ones available in the supermarket. They are made of paper (as opposed to fabric which some others are made of). Due to this fact, they tend to tear easily, especially as they often get stuck together in the pack due to the way they are folded.
These wipes can also be on the dry side which is sometimes better for a fairly runny dirty bottom, as it is more effective and reduces the chance of spreading the mess (sorry for TMI) - think d...
