aden+anais Ultra-Gentle Lotion & Stretch Mark Reducing Cream - Review

I'll admit it. I'm definitely one of those momma-to-be's that researches EVERYTHING. Cribs, strollers, diapers. I just like to know what the best of the best is for my little babe coming.

aden+anais is definitely one of those companies that produces some of the best of the best. I had first heard about aden+anais' from my mom about their swaddle blankets and that I needed them for Baby XO because of how soft they are. Naturally, those babies went straight on my registry because my mom knows best :)

I didn't, however, know that aden+anais had their own mum+bub skincare line! Their mum+bub skincare line is "gentle enough for a baby, but sophisticated enough for you". I absolutely love that I can share this with my little one. It's paraben, petroleum oil, gluten, soy and phthalates free and is lightly scented with Australian Sandalwood. I was lucky enough to get a chance to try out two products from their mum+bub line so let's check 'em out, shall we?

 Stretch Mark Reducing Cream
Ah, stretch marks. I think it's safe to say that no one is exactly jumping for joy when they get them, am I right? Unfortunately, there's no way to actually prevent them. It's kind of just the luck of the draw. Thankfully, this stretch mark cream is here to help reduce the appearance of them. For the best results, aden+anais recommend applying this cream from the beginning of the pregnancy until the end, twice a day wherever stretch marks may/have appear/ed. Apply from the first sign of stretch marks for 2-3 months. First off, I really appreciate the honesty. If there is a magical way to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, it's going to take a few months. That being said, I think it might be too soon to tell (I'm about a month in using this) if my stretch mark's appearance is going to be greatly reduced but they're definitely not as angry red as when they first appeared so that's definitely something. What I love the most about this cream (besides how yummy it smells) is how easy it's absorbed. Within a few minutes, it's absorbed in and leaves my skin feeling so incredibly soft.

Ultra-Gentle Lotion
This lotion is any momma-to-be's answer to dry, itchy skin! Infused with fresh, fermented pawpaw (Papaya) fruit along with a light scent of that Australian Sandalwood, this is one lotion I don't mind lathering my skin with over and over again because it smells so dang good. The Ultra-Gentle Lotion also contains shea butter as well to keep your skin soft. This lotion is super lightweight and absorbs into the skin fast but leaves your skin feeling silky smooth. This lotion is also safe to use on your baby and I cannot wait to smell this on Baby XO. Is that weird? 

Overall: The Stretch Mark Reducing Cream and the Ultra-Gentle Lotion from aden+anais' mum+bub line is everything I could ask for in a line for both moms and their babies to use. The lotion is super lightweight, absorbs in fast, leaves your skin soft and smells fantastic. Like I said earlier, I can't wait to use this on Baby XO. While it may be too early for a verdict for Stretch Mark Reducing Cream, I can say that I've noticed my stretch marks (so far) have lightened slightly. They're not so bright red like they were. Which is something to write home in my book! I highly recommend moms, mamas-to-be, whoever! - to check out this line!

  3. Aww. Such nice sounding products! However I don't think I would spend $15+ on a lotion for my kid, so it's nice to know I can use it too. I like the lack of petrochemicals in the product too!

  20. sounds nice. I really don't like Sandalwood, so I'd have to skip it, but if they had other scents, that might be better for me personally.
