Recently Aden + Anais graciously sent me the mum + bub skin care line to try. Since hearing the news that one was in the works…I continuously checked the website for updates on it’s release. As many of you know I am a HUGE fan of their products and more importantly so is Naomi. I don’t know what we would have done without their swaddle blankets (which for those of you who use them, know they are so much more than just a swaddle blanket) and now Naomi sleeps in their sleeping bags and with their Issie’s every night. Trust me on this if you are looking for a baby shower gift Aden + Anais is the way to go. You really can’t go wrong with their blankets, bibs, washcloths, or sleeping bags….and now SKIN CARE!
I know a lot of mom’s don’t really stress about which bath products they use on their babies. However when Naomi was born and there she was with the softest, brand new and beautiful skin…the last thing I wanted to do to her is cover it with chemicals. We’ve all heard the stories of companies like Johnson and Johnson having chemicals and carcinogens in their baby skin care products. That right there was enough to make me realize natural and organic skin care was something I wanted for my baby.
The mum + bub skin care line is made with pawpaw fruit and has an amazing and light sandalwood scent to it. We always tend to stick to unscented products because they are gentle on Naomi’s skin and I’m not a fan of smelling like a baby when I go into work or even at home with my husband (it’s hard to feel grown up or beautiful when you smell like your babies butt cream). I know Josh doesn’t want to leave the house smelling like lavender either. This line leaves you and baby feeling AND smelling fabulous.
If I had to recommend one thing out of the entire line, hands down it would be the soothing ointment. Naomi gets her fair share of rashes and scrapes and the ointment works wonders on them both. It definitely works better then my now OLD favorite California Baby Calendula Cream. However this ointment is definitely not just for babies. I use it daily on my lips and cuticles. Josh says it smells like cake, but most importantly I have NEVER found a product that left my lips feeling so good and silky soft. I have a nervous habit of biting my lips and it always leaves them dry and chapped. I’ve spent countless dollars on products from Clinique to Chanel and funny enough I found my favorite in a baby product. I’ve recommended it to my friends without kids as well.
The mum + bub line is free of:
- Petroleum oils
- Dioxanes from sulfates
- Gluten and Soy
- Artificial Colors
Needless to say this line did not disappoint and I had high expectations! I think they picked the perfect name since I’ve noticed I am always using it for myself and not just for Naomi. The products are available at http://www.adenandanais.com and while you are there check out all the amazing products they have to offer. I’m very eager to try the Dream blanket next now that Naomi is bigger and the “Up, Up and Away” Crib Sheets will be a must have when we are ready for another baby.
