Sensitive skin is not something new to me.  I was some sort of a walking eczema advertisement when I was a kid.  And as we know, there were limited skin care products to address skin irritation and diseases back then.
My daughter, Bianca, inherited my skin’s sensitivity level. She had cradle cap and rash aggravated by skin asthma when she was a baby. Growing up, she would often get eczema ocassionally too.  Though there are a lot of very good skincare products for babies and children in the market today, I only swear by Mustela products. Even if my daughter, Bianca, is not anymore a baby at 12, this is still her go to brand for skincare.
Mustela Stelatria Purifying Recovery Cream is something we can’t do without at home.  It soothes irritation easily, purifies, and speeds up skin repair.  My mom, daughter, and I use it whenever we have sudden skin irritations and rash. It is fast acting and pleasant to use.  We have also developed a penchant for Mustela Facial Cleansing Cloths.  It is alcohol free and gentle to the skin plus it has a mild baby scent that my daughter absolutely loves.  This is the only facial wipe she uses to clean her face. It is the perfect make up remover for me  too.

Bianca and I also love Musti Eau de Soin from Mustela™.  A delightful combination of an alcohol-free Eau de Senteur (tender aromas of flowers and fresh fruits) with extracts of plants renowned for their softening properties. The smell leaves us with happy thoughts of babies!

Mustela has been around for more than 60 years.  It is an old French brand whose mission is to provide moms and babies with the safest skin care products that would address specific skin needs. Since protection of mommy and baby’s skin is Mustela’s ultimate priority, it uses only ingredients of natural origin and leaves out questionable ingredient typically found in many skincare ranges such as parabens, phenoxyethanol, phthalates, chlorophenesin and essential oils.

Mustela products are guaranteed safe to use since they are hypoallergenic and have undergone rigorous testing.  They are also proven effective since the products were developed in close collaboration with healthcare professionals. Ingredients were rigorously tested,  80% of which comes from  natural origins.  They are also a pleasure to use since they emit delicate scents that will make you and your baby feel good. Even its packaging was carefully chosen to make sure that the boxes are made using wood  from sustainably managed forests and are printed with ink containing vegetable oils.
Mustela’s complete range of products  caters to the specific skin care needs of  not just newborns, babies, and children but of new and expectant mothers as well.  All of its four skin care range (Mustela  9 months, Mustela Bebe, Mustela Dermo-Paediatrics, and Mustela Sun Care) are  tested following the strictest standards of quality, high tolerance, and optimum safety.
I highly recommend Mustela to expectant moms and moms with new babies. It makes for the best baby shower or christening gifts too.  Now on to the good news.  Tammy of Mustela Philippines has sent in Mustela products to share to three lucky Blancnotes reader and followers.  If you are an expectant mom, a mom of a new born, or someone who has a mom or a baby in mind who will benefit from using Mustela products, then you are welcome to join this giveaway.
