I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for WaterWipes. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
I was thrilled when I got the opportunity to review WaterWipes, which are new to the US. WaterWipes are a chemical-free product that have been a premier brand in Europe for quite some time. I’ve tried a few brands already after getting a bunch from baby showers, ranging from generic to some of the big brands. And while there are a ton of choices out there, I’m always looking for products that are more natural and use less chemicals, so I was excited to get to try them first!
A bit more info on WaterWipes:
WaterWipes are chemical-free and only contain 2 ingredients: 99.9% Pure Irish Water and .1% Grapefruit Seed Extract. Pure and simple with no preservatives, meaning no harsh chemicals touching your baby’s bottom. These wipes will keep up to 15 months unopened and then once opened, WaterWipes suggests that you use the entire package within one month. And if the top wipes feel dry, all you have to do it flip the package over to let the water saturate the wipes and you are good to go.
My WaterWipes Review:
Over the past couple weeks I’ve been trying them, I can tell you that WaterWipes are fantastic! They are thick and durable and clean really well! I’ve tried a few different wipes brands and some left Bryce’s bottom with a little redness, or a thin coating of whatever preservative/chemical was in them. But WaterWipes truly left his bottom feeling 100% clean. And no redness! This means I don’t have to worry about diaper ointment, which not only saves us some moolah, but also time- especially during those midnight feedings/diaper changes! And although I wish the package had a sturdier opening (i.e.- plastic top), the clear sticker does hold in the moisture and produces one wipe at a time, versus other brands where a whole line of wipes comes out and you have to jam them back into the package…the worst! (The company says it allows for the sterile environment within the package to be maintained, which is why they recommend that you don’t relocate the wipes into a different container.) Plus, I love that I can pronounce the ingredients- bonus points for safe and natural products!
Where do I get them?
WaterWipes are making their in-store debut at top Babies “R” Us stores across the country from May – July. At select Babies R Us locations, they are running a 2 for $6 sale on the soft packs (60 wipes, regularly $3.99).
