With Mother’s Day just a few days away men all around the world are racing into stores to pick up some last minute gifts for their beloved partners, wives and mothers. Of course they only want the best for their favourite mum but while that beautifully wrapped skincare pack from your local chemist may look lovely it is probably hiding a long list of nasty ingredients that you don’t want near your mum at all!
At Aden + Anais they have got precious bundles and their mamas covered with a wonderful range of naturally-derived skincare products that are ‘gentle enough for baby, yet sophisticated enough for you’. We all look after our most precious little bundles with utmost care and it is time we do the same for ourselves and other mums, we deserve it. The Aden + Anais skincare range consists of 5 great products to keep you clean, soft, smooth and fragrant from top to toe.
I don’t know about you but at our house bath time is 90% fun and 10% cleaning, the kids spend ages laughing, playing and splashing and they’re sad when they have to come out. A few small capfuls of tear-free Aden + Anais Bubble Bath ($24.95) will turn an ordinary bath into a sea of bubbles and leave a wonderful scent of Australian sandalwood. The addition of pawpaw fruit has a moisturising effect perfect for sensitive newborn and mama skin.
The same fabulous natural ingredients can be found in the Aden + Anais Hair + Body Wash ($24.95), a fantastic all-in-one product for the whole family that makes the daily clean very easy and smells great. Like the rest of the Aden + Anais skincare range it is free from phytoestrogen, parabens, petroleum oils, phthalates, gluten and soy so you can enjoy it with confidence. If you have a wriggly baby like I do you’ll love the pump flacon, you only need one hand to apply a small amount to your baby’s head.
Some expecting mothers get lots, some just a few and some (lucky) others get none, they come in many shapes and colours and none of us like them, I am of course talking about stretch marks. Whether you are a mama-to-be or a new mum the Aden + Anais Stretch Mark Reducing Cream ($39.95) is specifically created for you to help reduce the appearance of, and even prevent, the stretch marks that many of us fear and suffer from as a result of pregnancy. Apply religiously twice daily during and after pregnancy and watch the shea butter and natural-grade darutoside work their magic, you could see results in as a little as two weeks!
The last, and my absolute favourite, product in the range is the Aden + Anais Soothing Ointment ($39.95). I first discovered this ‘magical’ ointment last year and since then it has become the go-to solution for many little and big skin ‘problems’ in our home. We use it on chapped lips and red noses that have become sore from lots of blowing, it soothes little scrapes and shaving cuts, moistens dry patches, relieves nappy rash and much more. This nice big jar will go a long way, a real mama must-have!
