Something amazing happened recently.

I was asked to review a mystery product by Kiwi Mummy Blogs and being the adventurous sort of course I said yes.

I have to admit I was a little disappointed when I saw the size of the package on my doorstep - bit small for a dream sling I thought - but I decided to suck it up and see what was waiting for me.

And lo, there is a God of Awesome Surprises and she is good because it was better than a sling. Oh yes.

When I opened that package the clouds parted, angels sang (choirs of them) and I snatched the contents up like it was gold bullion.

As a crunchy mama, I spent no small amount of time finding products that I felt chimed with our desire to tread lightly while also being awesome for my children. One of the hardest things for me was leaving those products behind in the UK when we moved to New Zealand not knowing whether we would find replacements.

All of which is by way of qualifying my excitement to find myself clutching, like a little plastic wrapped piece of heaven, my favourite mama product of all time:

WaterWipes

These are wipes that I love so much that when a well known high street pharmacy had them on offer, I cleared out their entire stock.

These are wipes that I love so much that when the same pharmacy failed to restock, I resorted to cotton wool and water rather than buy another brand.

I have never done a product review before, but writing one for WaterWipes is simple for me:


Buy them, love them, cherish them because they are the kindest thing you will ever use on your baby.

These wipes are so gentle I use them on newborn nappy changes, I use them on newborn faces, toddler faces, MY face.

They are so gentle that you know those teething nappies that leave bottoms glowing Rudolf Red? They are the only things that don't make my children howl like a wolf is ripping off an arm. In fact these wipes have a nice cooling effect as the water evaporates which means my teething children give a big sigh of relief as I lay one over their red raw backsides.


On the flip side they are also strong enough to have removed what could generously be described as Stage Makeup after a works night out without leaving me feeling like my cheeks had been caught in a nuclear blast.

My only initial reservation about these wipes is that they were always relatively expensive in the UK, but actually what I found was that they worked out quite reasonable when you took into account the fact that you would use one per nappy change, rather than 3 or 4 poorer performing wipes.

Because that's the thing about WaterWipes, even putting aside the fact that they are insanely low in unpronounceable chemical crap, they are genuinely high performance wipes.

And they don't make your baby smell like an old lady's bathroom.

What more could you want?!

Thank you to Kiwi Mummy Blogs and Munch Cooking for sending me that little slice of awesome.
