I was sent a wide variety of skincare products to try out from Simple Baby. There was some Baby Wipes, a bottle of All-In-One Baby Wash, a bottle of Moisturising Baby Bath, a bottle of Moisturising Shampoo and some baby Talc.
I found the Simple Baby Wipes to be nice and moist which is a must for baby wipes. You can buy some that are so dry and then never make for successful baby changing. Each pack contains 64 baby wipes and they are very affordable at just over £1.00. The wipes are soft and have a nice fragrance to them. The outer packaging ripped near the place you pull the wipes from and although this happens with most brands of baby wipes , it is still very annoying. When the packet rips the sticky label ends up losing it’s stick and then you can’t seal the pack properly. It then ends up costing us mums more money as the wipes prematurely dry out and we have to buy some more. The wipes don’t pull out very easily from the pack as the fold is set behind the opening of the pack and you struggle to get the wipes out easily and when you do you either end up with 3 or so wipes or you end up with one wipe but the next one hasn’t popped up so you have to struggle to get that one out too. Again…I have encountered the same problem with many brands of baby wipes…so Simple are not on their own with this problem. The Simple Baby – Moisturising Wipes contain no perfume, no alcohol and no colour. The wipes have a built-in moisturiser and chamomile oil. Simple says all these things makes the wipes suitable for even the most sensitive skin. I would consider purchasing these wipes again as they are very cheap to buy at around £1.00 (in most stores). I get through lots of baby wipes so I like them to be affordable.
Here is the Ingredients of the Simple Baby Wipes:-
Aqua, Phenoxyethanol, Paraffinum Liquidum, Carbomer, Benzoic Acid, Coco-Glucoside, Sodium Hydroxide, Dehydroacetic Acid, Disodium EDTA, Panthenol, Bisabolol, Pantolactone, Anthemis Nobilis Oil
I don’t like reading the ingredients list on products as I never quite understand what all the scary sounding words mean. I am pleased to see no SLS in the baby wipes though. However I’m afraid the same can’t be said for the Simple Baby Bath products. I didn’t use any of the bath products on my daughter’s skin as they all contain SLS and I have vowed to do my utmost to avoid using SLS on my daughter’s skin because of the fact it is a known irritant. I’ll be honest here in saying I can’t quite understand how Simple is being marketed as suitable for delicate, sensitive skin and yet it contains SLS. I know it is legal to use it but I would be much happier to see it’s use being avoided in baby products all together. I do use products on myself that contain SLS as I kind of feel what’s done is done and it is a bit too late for me…plus it is in so many products!! However like I said, I wish Simple would remove it from their baby range. As I wouldn’t use the baby products on my daughter I tested them out on myself. They all are perfectly fine and do their respective jobs of washing your hair, creating bubble in your bath and washing your skin. I tried the talc out after having been swimming but I only used it on myself because of the health risks that may or may not be associated with the use of talc. The products are all affordable at just over £1.00 and I like the packaging design that features ‘Tatty Teddy’. Please bear in mind this review is only my personal opinion. I was sent the Simple baby products to review but because of my personal opinions I chose not use them with my child. It is your decision to make as to whether or not you use them. I am happy to see that all the Simple baby products are free from perfume and colour and that they use Chamomile, Lavender Oil and Pro-Vitamin B5 in some of their products. Simple has been making skin care products for sensitive skin for more than 50 years and I have discussed their products with many of my friends and they all use the women’s face products and never have any problems.

Along with the Simple Baby products I was sent some women’s face care products – Radiance Brightening Moisturiser SPF10, Kind to Skin replenishing Rich Moisturiser, Vital Vitamin Day Cream with sunscreens and Regeneration Age Resisting Day Cream – SPF15. I have tested out all of the above and had no issues with any of them. They were all absorbed into my skin really well and left my skin feeling lovely and soft. I am pleased that some of them have in-built SPF factors and sunscreens. The products vary in price but they are all affordable. As I mentioned earlier a lot of my friends use Simple Face Care products and they are all very happy with the results they get from using them. I will continue using my products and I would consider buying them again in the future.
In conclusion I am happy with the price point of the Simple products and delighted that they do not test any of their products on animals. It is good that if you have sensitive skin you can use Simple products but I would prefer to see a stop to using SLS in their baby range.
