Whenever it comes to baby products I always seem to be drawn towards the more natural options available, whether that be food or toiletries. Lily has quite sensitive skin and suffers from eczema so I am always quite hesitant to use anything particularly “chemically” and will normally choose a natural option if possible. Now don’t get me wrong, I use a lot of cheap wipes, especially when it’s 9pm and we run out and the other half has to leg it down to the shop to grab a pack just before they close which is rather often, but I always feel happier knowing I’m not adding any more unnecessary crap onto my baby’s skin when possible.
Jackson Reece has been a brand I’ve loved since I had my first, 7 years ago. I’ve used their wipes before and they’re a firm favourite of mine. They’re biodegradable, vegan, alcohol free, cruelty free, chlorine free, (perfect for those wanting to be more green), and they’re hypoallergenic. Everything that could upset sore, eczema prone skin they’re free from basically. The ones I reviewed are the unscented version which smell likes bubbles to me which is a huge step up from normal unscented scents. I have used the scented version before and they smell amazing, not like your usual baby wipe with their fake, heavily scented mess that is on par with a poonami nose wise, they have a very delicate, floral scent. More like a perfume than a poofume.
Lily has very sensitive skin, when at it’s worst, is cracked and bleeding, especially on her hands and arms where she can scratch. Even bathing in plain water can aggravate her eczema so we have to be rather careful about what we put on her skin. She had slight nappy rash at the time and she stopped fussing after I had wiped her with one as the Aloe must have soothed the rash. Post wipe I could feel the softness left behind on my hands so top marks there. I think a cream of some sort would be a brilliant addition to the collection, whether it be for nappy changes or just a regular moisturising cream (hint hint ;)).
I love the ethics behind the brand and how gentle they are, even on eczema prone skin. I really want to try their Nose Nuzzles wipes for wiping Lily’s hands and face after dinner as she has quite a bit of eczema under her chin and I’m curious to see if they would help soothe her face because regular baby wipes just seem to do nothing at best. Worth a shot I reckon.
You can buy both the scented and unscented wipes in Boots for £1.60.
