Are you like we were as new parents? Absolutely in love with this precious bundle with perfect, soft skin. Do you spend hours just sitting and watching her sleep, dream, goo, gah, and generally be perfect?
Well, you might be surprised like we were to wake up one morning (ok, it was probably the middle of the night) to see your sweet, perfectly skinned little one with tiny red spots. It starts out small, almost imperceptible. Then the spots multiply and redden. Then they spread over the entire surface of baby’s face! And if you are a new parent, you will start to wonder if she is having some sort of allergic reaction. You will search on the internet and find all sorts of horrifying skin ailments and try to compare it to your baby’s current state of red bumpy-ness.
All to discover your little bundle, your sweet innocent, precious little child has a very grown-up sounding affliction:
I personally hate the word acne. I hate calling face blemishes anything. I hate giving them a moment of my time (yes, still somewhat horrified from puberty). So when I found out there was a condition called baby acne, I sought out a baby acne solution immediately! My little one would not suffer this indignity! Oh, no, not if I could help it.
And I was so glad that a friend of mine recommended this product, Mustela PhysiOBebe,
This is the best solution to the problem of baby acne! We started using it a couple of times a day with our little one about a week after she got the worst break out of baby acne- we were scrambling and freaking out until we found this solution. Within a week to ten days, it was clear and it has never come back!
We have continued to use this product with our other two children and they have NEVER had baby acne! At the slightest hint of a red bump, we simply swipe the PhysiOBebe over their faces and the red bumps never multiply!
We even created a song to go with it and call it spa day (see video below). Our oldest still loves to have “spa day” and asks for it, even stands still long enough to do it! We simply pump a small amount (one pump) onto a cotton ball and swipe over the face, neck and ears of our little ones.
Oh, and it smells good too! It is the perfect scent for babies!
The bottle says that you can use it on diaper areas too, but we have not used it for this purpose (though I am sure it would work!).
We love Mustela products around here, but the PhysiOBebe our absolute favorite. We even take a small bottle with us on road trips with our girls. I am not sure if the company could claim that it solves baby acne, but I can! I was not paid by Mustela to recommend their product, I am just a fan who is thankful this product clears up the problem, so my girls don’t have to suffer the indignity of acne! Well, at least not until they are teenagers!
But I have discovered recently that Mustela has a rewards program for their fans! If you want to try Mustela for your little one and want to join their rewards club, please let them know I sent you by entering this code: 440748 when they ask who referred you.
UPDATED: It just gets better over at Mustela. I just received the above email letting me know that all new members for their rewards program get a FREE travel set and FREE shipping on their first order. You have to purchase at least one item and then add the code NEWMEMBER (after signing up for the program)! Not bad at ALL!
NOTE: Baby acne is a condition that will go away on it’s own, but I truly believe this product helped to speed along the process. Plus, I just love pampering my little ones!
What baby product to you use and absolutely love?
