Introducing mum + bub Skin Care from aden + anais (Review + Giveaway)


If you have been around my blog at all in the last few years then you know that I adore aden + anais. In fact, I haven’t found an aden + anais product that I’m not completely obsessed with. So, when I found out that they released a new skin care line, mum + bub, I just knew that I would love those products, too!

mum + bub is a naturally-derived, pawpaw fruit infused skin care collection for baby and mom. Each product is infused with fresh, fermented pawpaw fruit (a fruit known for its skin care benefits) and is formulated with the help of Ellen Gendler, M.D., a leading New York dermatologist. Gentle enough for baby, yet sophisticated enough for you, mum + bub offers a natural way to cleanse and protect.

Recently, aden + anais sent me several of the new mum + bub products to review and I couldn’t wait to put them to the test. The first product I tried, the ultra-gentle lotion, features a non-greasy formula that is lightly scented (it smells really fresh to me) with Australian Sandalwood that leaves skin feeling silky smooth when used daily. This naturally-derived lotion is free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, gluten and soy and is perfect for use on baby and mom.

Having used plenty of natural lotions over the years on Princess P, I was anxious to see just how well the mum + bub ultra-gentle lotion moisturized her skin. I first noticed that it had a great consistency, not too thick and not too thin, and absorbed into her skin fairly quickly. The ultra-gentle lotion made P’s skin feel super soft and left behind a light, pleasant fragrance. The mum + bub ultra-gentle lotion may become the only lotion I use on P and baby girl in the coming months!

The next product we tried, the hair + body wash  from mum + bub, is formulated to be mild, tear-free and conditioning. The wash lathers decently and rinses clean, while still leaving the skin lightly scented. I love how the hair + body wash leaves your skin feeling when you get out of the shower! Another great thing about the mum + bub hair + body wash is that it is available in a pump bottle for easy washing during bath time!

We also received the mum + bub soothing ointment in the 6oz jar and I think I have become a bit obsessed since its arrival. This ointment contains 50% fresh, fermented pawpaw fruit per gram and relieves, protects and cleanses the skin when applied. The soothing ointment has a terrific fragrance (it smells a little more vanilla than the other two) and feels great when applied to the skin. Great for minor cuts, diaper rash, cracked skin, chapped lips and so much more, the mum + bub soothing ointment is one of those products that is great to have around. I look forward to finding many uses for the soothing ointment, including cracked nipples thanks to breastfeeding!

Buy It: The ultra-gentle lotion ($15.95), hair + body wash ($15.95) and soothing ointment ($15.95 for 3oz or $28.95 for 6oz) can be purchased at
