With Halloween just around the corner, if your children are anything like mine, you’ll be listening to their constant chatter of which Halloween costume they want, which face paint design they are after, and how many sweets they are going to eat!
I can’t help but feel that Halloween seems to have gone a little mad over recent years. When I was a child we were happy to dress in a bin bag and a witches hat and knock on our own front door for a packet of Chewitts! Now statistics show that UK residents spend a whopping £460 million on Halloween essentials in 2015 and this year is set to be no different.
Whether your little horror has sticky fingers from too many sweets, or fake blood that just wont budge, WaterWipes – the world’s purest baby wipes – are the ideal baby essential this Halloween. And at £2.70 a pack, they won’t break the bank!
This week we have been trying out some face paint ideas, none of which looked anything like the pictures the children have chosen from Pinterest! Eva was so horrified by my first attempts that she insisted I wipe it off, even before I’d had time to finish both eyes!
Luckily WaterWipes are just 99.9% water with a drop of fruit extract, meaning that they won’t irritate sensitive skin, even around the eye area. Even better, WaterWipes do not contain oil extracts so you can be assured that they won’t clog your child’s pores and lead to further irritation.
Gently wiping in a circular motion is the most effective way to remove stubborn face paint. As children’s skin is much thinner than adults, Midwife, Margaret Merrigan Feenan recommends you use cotton wool and water or WaterWipes.
And because WaterWipes left Eva’s skin feeling so fresh and clean, we can keep practicing until we finally master the perfect skeleton just in time for Halloween! Wish me luck!
WaterWipes are available from Boots, Amazon.co.uk, Ocado.co.uk and major supermarkets.
