Mustela Bébé Range {Product Review + Giveaway}

Caring for the new-born's baby skin is a delicate matter. Is the product phthalate and parabens free ? Is it hypoallergenic ?  Is the product fragrance free ? Will baby break out in rashes after using ? I would not want any products with any fragrance for baby ... blah blah ... the list goes on and yes this is me ! These are what I look out for when choosing a skin care product for baby.

When Vera was six weeks old, I was using the standard procedure of cleaning her face with clean, clear tap water. But that did not help with the baby acne and milk rash on the little one's face. Baby's skin is supposed to be smooth isn't it ? And I realised the folds behind her ears started to discharge sticky fluid.

Look at her skin shown below and the problems at the folded areas. I was pretty helpless and upset about it.


Until I decided to bring her to see her PD, who recommended and prescribed me with Mustela STELATRIA® Purifying recovery cream. After consistent application for a week, I saw an improvement in her skin condition and felt that the purifying cream is not bad !

The problem next  is not only her face. I started to observe that her skin was dry at both her arms and back, redness at the folds under her armpits as well as on her arm. Eventually, she had cradle cap too !! It was like the skin issues came in one after another !

I was elated when I got the invitation to attend Mustela Rebirth Launch, it was a good opportunity to get to know more about the products !

I was willing to give Mustela Bébé Range a try after getting to know that their products are free from :
- Phthalate
- Parabens
- Phenoxyethanol
- Alcohol
- Chlorphenesin
- Genetically modified plants extracts
- Alcohol
- EDTA
- SLS

and is made from an average of 92% ingredients of natural origins. With an intelligent active ingredient in it , Avocado Perseose, it helps to strengthen the skin and protects it's store of cells by acting as a protective shield and with perfect tolerance.

Below are the products, Mustela Singapore had allowed me to pre-select the products to suit the needs of Vera.

I started cleaning and maintaining her skin with the range of products. I started off with using PhysiObébé, no rinse cleansing fluid (Applicable for the face and diaper area). I totally fell in love with it because it leaves a delicate, refreshing scent after cleaning and no rinsing is required. Adding on, it is so gentle that it does not sting baby's eyes and Vera's perfectly fine with it ! No fuss whenever I clean her face with it.

Following, whenever, Vera pooped. I used the Cleansing milk to clean her up. The cleansing milk has a soft, creamy texture and it is so easy to clean off her diaper area without much fuss. After which, I cleaned again with clear water before I dry the diaper area and apply the Vitamin Barrier Cream.

I will not want to risk having diaper rash on Vera. I will apply diaper rash cream on the diaper area diligently after shower or every diaper change. I'm surprised at the texture of Mustela's Vitamin Barrier Cream.  I find the texture soft and light, it stays on the skin easily and it was delicately scented as well. The best part was, during the next diaper change. The diaper area remained dry and silky soft !!

Zooming in on Vera's cradle cap issue. Seriously, I did not know that there is a shampoo for cradle cap until Josephine from Mustela Team shared with me during the launch.

Dermo- Cleansing & Foam Shampoo for New born

As far as possible, I  always love to have "live" testimonial to show.  Here's the "Before and After" using Mustela's Foam Shampoo for Newborn, which targets at cradle cap.

Look closely at the circled area, see if you could see the white flakes on the scalp.

 

One to two weeks later, I noticed her scalp has clear up ! No more flaky skin on her scalp.


For every shower, I pumped two dallops of the foam shampoo and gently massage her scalp in circular motion alongside with the foam shampoo and rinse off thereafter. It is simple to apply and it does not get into her eyes.


The after effect which I noticed was, I spotted "dandruff" in tiny spots amongst her hair. It seems like the shampoo has helped to eliminate the flakes, I merely just brushed her hair to remove it and soon her scalp is cleared ! The foam shampoo left a light scent on Vera's hair and her hair felt softer too. Should you have spot me smelling her head, you know what's the reason behind it !

After shower, I massaged Hydra Bébé® body lotion onto Vera's body. I love its non greasy texture, leaving her skin soft and moisturized. Gone are the dry patches.

How she enjoyed each time I massaged the lotion onto her body. Through physical touch, it is a good way to bond with the baby through massage.
 

We see a vast improvement after using Mustela Bébé Range for two weeks ! This is the skin condition of Vera ! No more angry rashes and skin is smoothen and moisturized ! Thank you Mustela !
