Shortlist 2016

At a glance:

Our panel of mum testers commented on how trusted the Pampers brand is, and loved the fact that there are no harsh chemicals used in these wipes. Wipes are easy to take out one by one and the packaging keeps them fresh, however these are a higher price point than others in this category. 

What they say:

“Your one-of-a-kind new arrival deserves gentle cleaning, which is why Pampers New Baby Sensitive Wipes are milder than cotton wool and water to care for your newborn’s skin in the kindest possible way. Their balanced wetness leaves the skin feeling cleaner whilst helping to maintain the natural pH level. Pampers unique Soft Grip Texture helps to pick up mess in moments. What’s more, our unscented wipes have an easy-to-open lid for speedy access which prevents wipes from drying out. Don’t fear the mess again, with Pampers New Baby Sensitive Wipes.”

Tested by mum Leanne Wayte for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this product to fellow mums for the stylish design, they are not over-moist and are both thick and soft, not just for bums but face and hands too.

How did this product make your life easier?

They help sensitive skin as they are not perfumed, which makes life easier when your little one is delicate. Also, I find that other wipes are really wet and cold, which, during a night time change, is not what baby wants.

Would you choose this product to win?

I would choose this product for the packaging, and crucially because they are not as wet as other wipes on the market, making them a nice temperature for night time feed and changing.

What changes would you make to this product?

If I could change anything, it would be that there are only 50 wipes in the pack. Normally you get around 60 wipes in a pack which would be better value for money. That said, I wouldn’t change anything at all about the wipes themselves!

Tested by mum Kayleigh Newton for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this product for anyone to use! From new mums to teenage girls these wipes are perfect for everything: cleaning up spills around the house, and a dirty highchair, as well as being super soft on my baby’s skin. So for me they are multi-purpose!

How did this product make your life easier?

These wipes are so effective for using on both my toddler and newborn baby as they wipe up all the mess and leave their skin feeling clean and soft. Even for me personally, I use them now and then to remove make-up as I love how soft they make my skin feel.

Would you choose this product to win?

I used to use Aldi's own brand Mamia baby wipes before testing Pampers, but now when I go shopping for baby essentials I make sure that Pampers Sensitive baby wipes are on my list. I prefer these as they seemed softer on the skin and had a lovely smell. I also liked the packaging on the wipes especially the resealable clip so no baby wipes get wasted by drying out.

What changes would you make to this product?

The only downside of this product is, like many other brands, there aren’t a lot of wipes in each pack which can get expensive. Other than that I think that this is a great product and will be recommending to friends and family and be buying them from now on!

Tested by mum Jennifer Fitzgerald for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Yes I would recommend this product to other mums.  I feel reassured that my daughter is clean and fresh after her nappy changes and if necessary I can use the wipes on other parts of her body for a quick freshen up if without harming her skin with harsh chemicals.  The way they are folded means they are dispensed well. They are also easy to transport and use.

How did this product make your life easier?

The packaging for Pampers New Baby Wipes does make it easy to transport as the size is easy to fit into changing bags and can easily be resealed without the wipes drying out.  Wipes are easy to extract one by one due to the way they are folded which is useful when using one hand. The wipes do not tear, unlike other brands I have tried in the past and now avoid, so less wastage and messy accidents. It is reassuring to know they are sensitive and no unnecessary chemicals are used - and they still get the job done.

Would you choose this product to win?

Two of the main selling features are that the wipes are gentle on a new baby’s skin and that the package is easy to open and close properly, thereby preventing the wipes from drying out. I am reassured by the brand, as I have used Pampers with my son in the past and have always been happy with the quality of their products. Neither of my children have ever suffered any kind of irritation from using this product and both have sensitive skin (my son also suffered from eczema).

What changes would you make to this product?

The only thing I would change about this product is the price as it is more expensive than other brands, or even other Pampers wipes for slightly older babies. Whilst I have said this product is easy to transport, it may be useful to get it in a smaller, more compact size for handbags etc. Otherwise, I don't believe any further changes are required.

Tested by mum Nicole Mumford for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend Pampers Sensitive New Baby Wipes to other mums because of the handiness of the product and the fact that it helps speed up nappy changing time, in comparison with cotton wool and water. The packet is a good size to be taken on a long journey and are a good size to prevent any accidental mess.

How did this product make your life easier?

This product comes in a handy packet with a plastic lid which keeps the wipes fresher for longer, so nappy changing has been made a lot easier and quicker. I also don't have to use as many wipes as with other brands either as they are a good large size.

Would you choose this product to win?

I wouldn't choose this product over the ones I currently use, as I prefer the ingredient list on my current ones as it is basically water and I trust them to be better for sensitive skin, but after testing this product I do fully trust Pampers to do a good job.

What changes would you make to this product?

The one thing that worries me is the ingredients list, the current ones I use contain only a couple of ingredients, whereas these wipes contain 15 ingredients and only last three months while opened. So the open life of the product could be made longer as the current wipes I use are able to be open for six months.

Tested by mum Chantelle Hurcombe for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend to a friend or fellow mum because they are so lovely and thick there is no chance of the wipes ripping whilst you are cleaning a dirty bum. I also love the plastic lid as it stops the wipes drying out as a sticky label would.

How did this product make your life easier?

The product makes my life easier as a mum because a load of wipes don't all come out at once so when I am changing my sons dirty nappy, I don't have to struggle to make sure poo doesn’t go everywhere. I am a single mum also so I don't have anybody to help when my son has a nappy explosion.

Would you choose this product to win?

I do think this product should win as I've never experienced wipes so thick and they are definitely as gentle as cotton wool. Also, my son suffers from nappy rash and it hasn't irritated him at all.

What changes would you make to this product?

The design should be changed to something more child appealing as the packaging is quite dull. I suggest maybe shapes or a cartoon style design which would appeal to the little ones! 

Tested by mum Stefania Fleming for the Mother & Baby Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

These wipes are by far the best we have tested. They are gentle on my baby's skin but thick enough to clean the messiest of nappies. The packaging is simple but stylish and they are definitely worth the price.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

I really prefer thicker wipes as I find I go through less at each nappy change.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

The one thing I could change is to add more wipes to the packet. The packet has 50 wipes where as other brands have 60. This would just make them last a bit longer.

Tested by mum Danielle Reuby for the Mother & Baby Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

The are strong! I really like how thick and strong they are. i find I use less wipes as I am able to handle them easier and use them more effectively. I used them on both my newborn and toddler and they can handle some explosive nappies. They are delicate on skin even if sore with teething rash.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

The thickness makes changing a yucky toddler nappy more bearable. As they are strong you are able to use less rather than them ripping so have lasted longer. The pack was easy to open and close.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

Help to make the more environmentally friendly, as we use a lot of wipes and feel guilty about doing so.

Tested by mum Vicki Lee for the Mother & Baby Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

i have always loved pampers wipes. these are lovely and thick. sensitive for baby bottoms. so does not cause any rashes. the packaging it well done. nice bright colours. easy to open.packs nice in the changing bag.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Easy to open, easy to transport.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

Doesn't need to be changed!

Tested by mum Natalie Crosland for the Mother & Baby Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

An all round good wipe which comes in a resealable pack to keep them from drying out. The wipes feel soft and moist and clean a dirty nappy well. A good product to keep in the changing bag for nappy changes and cleaning messy hands and faces.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

They are perfume and alcohol free - perfect for little bottoms!

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

The design of the lid could do with a tweak. When the packet is half full to empty it can be quite hard to open and close and often needs two hands.
