I received some really exciting news when I went home for the holidays this year: one of my best friends and her husband have a baby on the way! I could not be happier for the two—really, I’m about to explode with joy! Once the initial, all-consuming excitement wore off, I began quizzing the new mothers in the office on ideas for congratulations gifts to send, and blankets and baby clothes and toys I could spoil the little one with, when one co-worker suggested Mustela Skin Care Products. The dermatologist-approved line, which claims to be “The skin care specialist for babies and mothers-to-be,” features four distinct types of products: Mustela Bebe for newborns and young children, Mustela Sun Protection to properly protect immature skin from the harmful sun, Mustela Dermo Pediatrics for newborn and young children’s skin disorders and Mustela 9 Months with is specifically designed for expectant mothers.
Several of the moms around the office have solemnly sworn that the Mustela products are among the best they have used on their babies—particularly when it comes to curing pesky diaper rashes and cradle cap. After reading all the rave reviews on DermStore (Mustela has 19 Shopper’s Choice products!) I settled on sending my friend the Mustela Newborn Set. For only $38.61, the set includes Foam Shampoo for Newborns which prevents and heals cradle cap, PhysiBebe to cleanse the face and diaper area, Hydra-Bebe Body Lotion, Vitamin Barrier Cream to prevent diaper rash and Dermo-Cleansing Gel , which is a soap-free cleanser for the baby’s hair and body.
Even though my friend is destined to be one of those impossibly adorable, cute pregnant women who never even sets foot in the maternity section (think Miranda Kerr), I also sent the Mustela Stretch Mark Cream. With 50 reviews and an average of five stars, it seemed like a no brainer!
