Mustela – #1 Baby Care Products in Europe, Free of Icky Ingredients

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence Central for Mustela. I received a promotional item to facilitate my review.

There are few things as sweet as baby skin. We all talk about the “smell” of a new baby and wish we could prolong it, or even bottle it! I’m lingering a little longer with this third baby, as it will probably be our last. {Oh it pains me to type that!}.  Protecting that sweet baby skin is important too. I read labels and buy products for myself, my older children, and now the baby that are free of phthylates and parabens to ensure a safe product for all of my family members.

Mustela Baby Skin Care Products at Walgreens from WholesomeMommy.com

When I learned of Mustela, the #1 baby care and stretch marks brand in Europe, and that it was going to be available at Walgreens {making it both a great brand AND easy to find} I had to see and try it myself.  As of September 2014, Mustela’s 2 in 1 Hair and Body Wash, Hydra Bébé Body Lotion, Facial Cleansing Cloths, Dermo-Cleansing, Stretch Marks Double Action, Stretch Marks Intensive Action and Body Restructuring Gel will be available at over 1,000 Walgreens stores throughout the United States.  We decided to give the baby products a try- specifically the 2 in 1 Hair and Body Wash and the Hydra Bebe Body Lotion.

Mustela has been the skincare expert for babies and mothers-to-be for over 60 years in Europe.  They have relied on strong partnerships with  healthcare professionals, dermatologists, pediatricians, and gynecologists, to develop its range of specialized products that perfectly meet the requirements of babies at birth and beyond.  Following 10 years of research and an unprecedented dermatological discovery about baby’s skin, Mustela has reformulated its Bébé range to incorporate a next generation protective ingredient, Avocado Perseose®, that is exclusive to Mustela.

My experience with Mustela has been a pleasant one!  My first impression was how lovely it smelled.  Generally, safe products that are free of harmful ingredients have a plain or even unpleasant smell. It was a very nice baby smell without being overpowering. I also noticed that it continued to linger – I could still smell it the day after a bath. The Hydra Bebe Body Lotion had a nice feel and absorbed well into baby’s skin without leaving it feeling greasy. My daughter {who is 3} also loves the smell and sneaks the bottle out of my room. :) I’ve caught her a couple of times rubbing it on her feet!

Want to experience Mustela for yourself?

You can purchase these products at Walgreens now, but to celebrate their launch, they are hosting a Happy Healthy Baby Sweepstakes on the Mustela facebook page now!  Each week, 5 random winners will receive a $25 Walgreens gift card & an assortment of Mustela Bébé products ($50 value!).  To enter upload your favorite photo of your baby to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter & tag it with #MustelaBaby.

I have an exciting announcement.  I am working with a brand I personally LOVE. I love it when that happens. When a partnership happens naturally with a company that I already know and love.  The people at Harvestland reached out to me and asked if I would like to work with them on a couple of projects.  I am overjoyed that not only did they want to work with me to develop a few recipes for you using their products but they were also very generous in offering me LOTS of coupons to give to YOU!  I love helping you save time with fast, healthy recipes and I love saving you money on healthy foods even more!  So, this partnership is very exciting for me {and I hope for you too!}.


First off, if you aren’t familiar with Harvestland, I’d like to introduce you.

Confused by Chicken Labels From Wholesome Mommy

You may have seen my video from several months back when I was doing the “REAL Food on a Food Stamp Budget” where I mentioned that my family often buys Harvestland products because they meet my requirements for both a healthy product AND an affordable one. You can see that video here, called “Confused By Chicken Labels?”

Besides being a brand I often buy because of the way the meat is raised, I like that I can find it in my small town where organic and/or natural food brands can be hard to find – and it is affordable. But beyond that, I love that Harvestland works with small family farmers that care about wholesome food too.  If you want to know more about Harvestland you can read their full story here.
