Road Test Tuesday – Red Nose Day Baby Wipes & Giveaway!
Hey Mums, did you Nose?
There is a great new product out that we can all purchase to support Red Nose Day all year round!
As we all know, Red Nose Day is a great campaign supporting the vital research into Stillbirth, SIDS and Safe Sleeping Practices. As Mums, this is close to all of our hearts and I know you (as well as us) really appreciate the work that goes into this research. God forbid, it could be one of our children that need this type of help. That’s why its so important that we in turn, support them.
Instead of buying a red nose once a year, you can now purchase packets of these Red Nose Day Wipes instead of your regular wipes. Its not a huge change and you can be happy in the knoweledge you are supporting a good cause.
- Australian owned and made
- FSC Certified
- Not too wet, not too dry
- They come in a pack of 100 Wipes and each purchase supports research into stillbirth, SIDS and safe sleeping practices
- You can purchase Red Nose Day Wipes all year round from Bambini Pronto for $5.99
Firstly, I was surprised that the scented wipes were not too stinky (compared to some). We don’t use scented wipes as both my girls have pretty sensitive skins, however I was determined to try them out anyway. I’m happy to report we have had no breakouts!!! I can’t believe it! I’m not sure if the wipes are using a different perfume or if Miss Z is just getting a tougher skin!. The unscented ones have been just as good (and I must admit I do always prefer wipes with no perfume). I’ve used both types to wipe down the highchair and other things too (noses, hands, café tables after my children get at them with drinks etc. etc.
I normally buy wipes from ALDI (love them!) and I must say these are just as good. They are strong, just “wet” enough and have done a pretty good job in our house so far. The only thing I don’t like is that the dispenser hole is WAYYY to small. If one gets stuck its fiddly to get out and if Miss Z pulls out 6 at a time its a bit of a pain to shove them all back in again. Other than that – definitely a winner! I just hope they bring out a mega pack so I can easily transfer wipes in bulk to my (super funky and very useful) handbag wipe containers:)
What Mel Says:
We generally only use unscented wipes in this house too, due to two kiddies with quite sensitive skin, so I’ve been using the unscented ones at Master O’s nappy change times and the scented ones for wiping sticky hands and faces, snotty noses, the kitchen table after dinner, my mobile phone after the kids have played with it etc. so both types have dealt with the worst that our household has to offer…
After a few days of cleaning faces with the scented wipes and no reactions, I also tried them on Master O’s bottom – and no reaction. So, the same as Danni – I was pleasantly surprised.
I’m a big fan. I really don’t like a certain big brand wipe (from the people that also make those big brand nappies – which I do use) because even though they say thick and strong they tend to rip coming out of the pack. Their ’embossing’ also makes them feel almost scratchy. So I was really impressed with the Red Nose Wipes.
They are thinner, but very strong (they don’t tear or rip) with a bit of stretch, the right amount of moisture to get stubborn sticky messes off bottoms, faces, hands and tables, and they feel soft on skin. I usually use Curash wipes, and these are very similar, but the Red Nose wipes are bigger and they have 20 more wipes to a pack. As a price comparison the Curash wipes are currently $5.41/pack at Coles (which works out at $6.76/100 wipes) as are the other certain big brand wipes that I mentioned above. So at $5.99 a pack for 100 they are on the money with value, and because of the larger size wipes you don’t need to use as many. Not to mention you are supporting a very worthy cause. I’ll certainly be adding them to my cart when I do my next Bambini Pronto order.
