At a glance:

If you're looking for wipes that are biodegradable and gentle on your little one's skin, Aqua Wipes are a good choice. They have the right amount of moisture without sticking together. Made with purified water and organic Aloe Vera, your baby's skin is in safe hands with Aqua Wipes. 

How did this product make your life easier?

Rachel: Throw away wipes for when out and about are very handy – just quickly grab one from your bag and that’s that. They are not too wet and ‘slippery’, clean mess up well, and don’t drip when you take them out of the packet as other similar wipes do. Good for bums, messy hands, faces, etc. As they are biodegradable, I am happy to use these when out and about instead of our reusable wipes, which can be a bit of a faff. They make my life easier in that respect. I feel that this is a reasonable balance.

Christina: These wipes were much easier to use compared to other products on the market. Due to the fact that the Aqua Wipes were very wet compared to other wipes, cleaning my baby was much quicker. Jenson was happier because his bottom was not sore from having to rub as often to get it clean. I was also able to clean my baby with fewer wipes which meant that the wipes lasted longer. I loved these wipes and so did my baby!

Julie: These wipes are great, lovely quality and so much better for the environment than standard baby wipes. I found the wipes a good level of wetness I would say these are water than most supermarket wipes which helped with clean ups however they are not too wet which I have found some other eco wipes to be.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Charlotte: I would definitely recommend the Aqua wipes because they are so moist and pure, being a water wipe. I am not a fan of chemicals in wipes or nappies, so I usually use cloth reusable, so knowing these are mainly water with some essential oils, fills me with confidence when using them. The wipes are gentle on both my little baby's skin and also my sensitive eczema prone hands. I feel clean after using them.

Caitlin: I would recommend them because they are mostly water meaning would be very good for babies with sensitive skin. I also have vegan friends so the fact they are vegan and don’t test on animals means I would tell them about the product. As well the fact that they are plastic-free and biodegradable making them more environmentally friendly therefore if more people were to use them it would be better for the environment.

Leanne: They dispense one wipe at a time. The fact that they are virtually plastic-free is definitely a selling point. The packets aren't too bulky which means they don't take up too much room in the changing bag. I really like how they are very moist which means they are great at cleaning your baby's bottom without needing to use too many.

Would you choose this product to win?

Rachel: I would choose these above other brands on the market as they are biodegradable and contain natural ingredients. Both of these things are very important to me as I believe we should all be trying to take steps to reduce waste and plastic waste where we can. These are convenient to use instead of reusable cloth wipes in certain situations where you would like the ease of throwaways.

Christina: I think this product should win the award because they are the best wipes on the market. They are soft, wet and larger enough to use effectively. Although these wipes are slightly more expensive than other brands, it is worth paying a little bit extra. My husband and I were very impressed with the fact that they are environmentally friendly and are made with absolutely no plastic - something that would sway us to buy them again. I like the fact that the wipes were fragrance-free and lasted a long time due to their design.

Leanne: I would choose this product above all others on the market. I think Aqua Wipes should win as they are excellent quality and even though they are slightly more expensive than other wipes the fact they dispense one at a time and they are so good at cleaning up messes means that you haven't got to use as many wipes.

What changes would you make to this product?

Christina: The only downside that we encountered with this product was that the travel size packet was very small. Whilst the wipes were still brilliant and very effective, the travel packet was slightly too small and could have had a few more wipes included to make the price more reasonable. There is nothing that we would change about the wipes or the packets themselves.

Wendy: I'd like them to dry quicker for this wipe. Otherwise, it feels like the child's had a shower without having a towel nearby. For adults, these wipes are very refreshing in the heat but for a baby where the bottom is so sensitive, you need to make sure it dries before putting a nappy on.

Leanne: The one thing I would change about the Aqua Wipes is the price. I feel they are quite expensive to use every day. That is the only downside to them being environmentally friendly. Making the wipes more affordable would most definitely make mum's lifestyle easier as there are so many things we need to pay for.
