Item of the Week: Mustela Baby Shampoo


As a FTM I thought I might share some of the awesome products we have stumbled across. So here's this week's awesome find....
Okay, all you moms out there...I don't know if you've tried this on your baby, but it is a miracle worker! We knew we weren't going to use any of the Johnson baby shampoo products because of so many harsh ingredients, we instead opted for Aveeno Baby until we read the label and they also use a lot of the same ingredients as Johnson. So after reading and reading and reading we tried the SAMPLE kits of California Baby and we really liked some of their shampoos and body washes. However, our sweet baby girl started breaking out with her baby acne around 3 1/2 weeks old. One of my sisters recommended using the Mustela Foaming Shampoo (yes Mustela, the same brand that I use for my stretch marks!!!) and the rest of the line for that matter. I kid you not, that within a week all of her baby acne was gone! Just GONE! My sister also said it helps get rid of cradle cap :) Personally, Mike and I don't know this because Kensi hasn't had any....hmmm...maybe it's because of the miracle shampoo :) 

The first time we used it, it took off all of her dead flaky skin that was peeling....completely gone! And over the last week, her baby acne....gone! Now she will get a few here and there, but it never lasts and has usually disappeared by the end of the day. This is now the only line we are choosing to use at this point. 

We give Kensi a bath about every other day. We use the Mustela Dermo-Cleansing Body Wash and the Foaming Shampoo for newborns. We only use the body wash on her shoulders down and used the shampoo for her neck, face and head. When she's done with her bath, we put the lotion on her from the shoulders down, but we avoid her face. 
They sell the products individually and you can buy the Newborn Kit, just check which products they put in the kit to ensure you are getting the ones you want. You can find it at Target; it is a little pricey, but well worth buying!

  1. Not sure of the specific ingredients off hand but we've been using the Eucerin Aquaphor Baby Gentle Wash and Shampoo (it's a 2-in-1) since the very first bath and have had great success with it. Blake hasn't had any problems with craddle crap either, I wondered the same thing about whether that was because of the baby wash or perhaps just good genes, hehe...but I really like the product and might continue to use it for the forseeable future. My plan was just to use it while he was teeny tiny (the first few months) and then switch to the Johnson & Johnson products but your post has got me doing some research now, hehe...keep the product reviews coming :)

  2. Hi, I have read your blog and I got a useful information from this blog. Thanks for sharing, keep posting.

  3. We have found different types of baby products available in the market. Baby shampoo is one of them; basically, we choose the best quality baby shampoo for our baby, as due to harmful chemicals in the shampoo, our baby feels pain in their eyes. So we should choose the least harmful product; well it is quite tough to trust different baby brands, so for me it is really tough to choose the best one.
