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.
If you’ve been following along on Instagram it’s pretty obvious I prefer to use cloth diapers. One of the big reasons for this is that I don’t want to put unnecessary chemicals against my children’s most sensitive body parts. And even though I have no problem with washing the diapers I have never been able to bring myself to use cloth wipes. For this reason I’ve been searching for a disposable wipe completely free of chemicals for quite some time and I was pleasantly surprised when I came across WaterWipes at Babies “R” Us. Lilah was pretty stoked too.
I decided to grab two packages of WaterWipes to take advantage of the two for $6 sale since each pack was regularly $3.99. I tried not to get my hopes up as I have been disappointed by wet wipes in the past, but I was really hoping these would be the solution to removing chemicals from our diapering process once and for all.
If you’ve never heard of WaterWipes before it’s not surprising as they are a premier European brand and have only recently made their debut in the United States at Babies “R” Us stores beginning in May 2015. What really drew me to WaterWipes is the fact that they are comprised of only two ingredients – 99.9% pure Irish water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract – making them the world’s purest wet baby wipe. Since they are a chemical free product I can rest assured I am providing a safer, natural option for my little ones.
It’s important to note that since WaterWipes are chemical free this means they are free of preservatives. An unopened package will remain shelf stable for 15 months and once opened should be used within 1 month. I don’t know about you but a package of wipes can never make it a month in our home so this is no problem for me.
In order to maintain a sterile environment WaterWipes are not interfolded like most other brands. It is also recommended they do not be transferred to an alternate storage container for the same reason.
So all of that is great, but do we like them? YES!
Upon pulling a single wipe from the packaging I was thrilled. These wipes are large and extra soft. They have just the right amount of moisture to clean even the messiest diapers, but don’t leave a greasy residue behind. Plus just one wipe is usually all I need to complete a diaper change. We’ve definitely found a new favorite wipe.
If you prefer the convenience of wet wipes, but want to kick the chemicals to the curb I highly suggest giving WaterWipes a try. Remember right now you can pick up two packages at Babies “R” Us for only $6! Be sure to enter the giveaway below too – that could buy ya a ton of WaterWipes!
