Review and giveaway: Aden and Anais mum + bub skincare

It has been a while since I made the conscious decision to switch to natural skincare products for myself, so it should come as no surprise that I have extended this to the products that I use on Alexander. Babies have the softest, smoothest skin so it really makes no sense to apply chemical-laden products on them.

I was especially thrilled when Aden and Anais sent me their naturally-derived skin care collection to trial and review. Their mum + bub range is infused with pawpaw fruit which contains a skin conditioning enzyme. It is also free from nasty chemicals, making it gentle enough for both baby and the entire family.
When Alexander was about 1 week old, his skin starting peeling due to dryness. Luckily I had the mum + bub ultra-gentle lotion at hand to use on him. After a few applications, I am happy to report the dryness went away and his skin was soft as ever. The lotion is super lightweight and absorbed easily, leaving no greasy feeling. I have continued to massage it on Alexander daily even now and he absolutely loves it.

I love the natural smell of Alexander - he is so milky and sweet. That's why I like that mum + bub's hair and body wash is very lightly scented with sandalwood which doesn't overpower his natural smell. When he spits up and vomits and gets poo on himself like all babies do, I use this product to gently clean his body and hair - one pump in the bath and another pump for his hair. This product is tear free, mild on the skin and conditioning, which makes bath time such a fun time for both him and me.

One thing I learnt very quickly as a new mum is that babies poo and wee a lot. And I mean A LOT. Alexander's nappy region is constantly being wiped and exposed to poo and wee so I've been extra diligent in applying mum + bub's soothing ointment on Alexander's little bum after each nappy change to prevent his skin from being irritated. This ointment also works well on cuts, chapped lips, insect bites - what a bonus!

Giveaway time! Aden and Anais is giving one lucky reader the chance to win all three products that I've trialed and reviewed, namely the mum + bub:

Ultra gentle lotion
Hair and body wash
Soothing ointment
Total value: $90

when i used to struggle with eczema, i thought i needed every face wash, scrub, moisturizer, toner, etc. in the handbook. little did i know that the chemicals in everything i was using was only really doing more damage to my skin! i've been meaning to make the switch to natural skincare for awhile now + would love to give these a try :)

Sam said...

This sounds like a wonderful range!

Rachel Kriss-Newell said...

Even though our bub has progressed from this newborn stage, she still suffers from cradle cap and irritated skin. I've been reluctant to try any medicated products due to the chemicals and nasties in them. Trying these products, I'd love to see if it relieves her continued skin irritations.

She also despises having her hair washed.There is nothing better than a happy bub at hair wash time, no tears with no chemicals as well. It's a product I'm keen to try.

susan@avintagefarmwife said...

I have never heard of this brand, but I love the idea of all natural products. I hate the thought of all the chemicals we probably get in our bodies through our skin-our largest organ!

Amy @ Elephant Eats said...

Oh my gosh, so jealous that you have a sweet baby with that delightful soft skin you can feel and smell. I bet he's just so wonderful. These products sounds great. I'm allergic to a lot of things so I think I'll have to try these since they seem to be very natural. I'll like your facebook page when I get home since it's blocked from work!
