On Baby Wipes


Ah, the ever indispensable wet wipes. I can't imagine how difficult a mother's life would be without them, and I show great respect to the millions of women today (and of the past as well) who have survived child - rearing without the help of these moistened (and sometimes scented) pieces of paper.

While I try as much as possible not to rely on wet wipes, there are just those days when poop - cleaning and neck/back/hand/feet wiping become awfully burgeoning tasks. I can't even bear to get up to take and moisten a piece of cotton or towelette with my ever trusty water sprayer. So, I take my wet wipes pack, open it, take a moist wipe and wipe away. Easy as that. :)

Oh, I forgot to mention how horrific it would be to change nappies in the mall restroom without them (que horror!)

In the short thirteen months of my daughter's life, I have tried more than ten types of wet wipes already, but I already have my favorite choices. Here's a review of some that I have tried (not necessarily my favorites - but just because I have photos of them!) Haha!


I think these were the first wipes that we ever tried. 80 pcs costs around 80 php. There's a 50 - pack plastic can that's sold as a bundle by 2's in baby section of the SM department store, and I think it sells for around 100 php. They're affordable, easy to use, soft, mildly scented and they're thick enough (meaning you won't have poop passing through on the other side of the wipes right into your fingers).

Beware of these, though. Bonus baby wipes come in different colors - the plastic packs come in yellow and white, while the plastic canisters come in green, pink, blue and white. They all cost the same but there's a variety that's thin and rough. I'm not sure what color it is though for the plastic canisters. Similar wipes of these quality and pricerange are Giggles, Prokids and I forgot the name of the other one. LOL

Quality: 4 out of 5
Price: 4 out of 5
Great for: Diaper changing, quick punas when too tired to give a real sponge bath.


This is relatively new, the wipe and the plastic container costs around 130 php for 60 pieces, but the refills cost only around php100 for 60 pieces. I love the blue container, the lid of which pops open when you press the open button. Perfect if you have little babies who already know how to peel away the cover for plastic wet wipes and pull out the wipes just for fun. It takes them awhile to work out how to open the Nivea Plastic box.

Nivea Baby wipes has a different texture which reminds me of plastic party napkins. The wipes have small blue drawings on them - cute, but not really necessary. A waste of ink, effort and resource, if you ask me.

The smell reminds me of sanitary napkins, though, and comes off a bit too strong.

Quality: 4.5 out of 5
Price: 3.5 out of 5
Great for: Diaper changing, quick punas when too tired to give a real sponge bath, using it in front of plenty of people because it looks sosyal.


This has got to be the most affordable baby wipes available on earth! You can get this from sellers in Manila for php30 for 80 pieces. Here in Cagayan de Oro, they cost anywhere from php45 to php60 for 80 pieces. These are China made wipes - they're thin and rough and what's weird is that there are actually different brands (they look different) that cost the same, feel the same and actually SMELL the same - and they're all made in China. While they're not great, quality wise, I still get a couple of these packs per month to wipe a lot of things other than baby's skin. You can get them at local diaper dealers and local Chinese/Taiwanese owned stores in Cogon and Divisoria (Novo and Kaking/Unitop to mention a few).

Quality: 2.5 out of 5
Price: 5 out of 5
Great for: wiping mirrors, items, windows, my daughter's puzzle mats, dresser, tables, my feet


They're not available locally, so basically, if you head to local grocery stores, Nivea Baby Wipes is the best one there is in terms of quality. Kirkland Baby Wipes, however, are available from numerous online sellers, Jing F. being one of them. Kirkland wipes are soft, thick, unscented and very nice to use. But its quite expensive, at php 260 for 88 wipes (plus shipping because the seller is based in Luzon, so make sure you buy plenty to save up on shipping fees.)

Quality: 10 out of 5 :p
Price: 3.5 out of 5
Great for: Diaper changing, skin wiping, feet wiping, face wiping, staring at and showing off to friends! :)

Giggles baby wipes are very affordable, and very mild on baby. I love the fact that they're alcohol free, and they are also unscented. I just don't like the funny yellow packaging that it comes in. It's very affordable, but it's not thin and flimsy, so I don't have to worry when it comes to poop cleaning.

Quality: 4.5 out of 5
Price: 5 out of 5
Great for: Diaper changing, feet wiping, face wiping, etc

Another cheap find. The quality is just like Giggles Baby Wipes, the only difference is that it has a soft powdery scent to it. The pack also has a lid on top, which means that I don't have to worry about losing the peel off tab. :-) Oh, and I like the blue packaging better than the yellow packaging of Giggles.

Quality: 4.5 out of 5
Price: 5 out of 5
Great for: Diaper changing, feet wiping, face wiping, etc

Which reminds me, I have yet to try Boogey Wipes. Review on that as soon as I get my hands on it.
