That clean baby smell

February 16, 2008

Mustela Hair and Body WashAll babies smell nice (except maybe for those sweaty skinfolds…), but when they are clean, it’s just heaven for me!
Everybody has their own favourite smell–the one that will remind you of a freshly bathed baby at any point in your life. I know that for Esther, it’s the smell of Zwitsal. For many years it was Fissan‘s for me (now produced by SaraLee, which is the same as Zwitsal).

But recently I have grown fond of Mustela products. Mustela, a French company, has been making specially formulated, hypo-allergenic products for babies and children that are great for sensitive skin. The “Mustela baby scent” has remained the same for more than 50 years, and I LOVE it!

They offer a full range of products, for daily hygiene, bath time and nappy change. mustela2.jpgTheir packaging is alluring; gently rounded bottles that are easy to handle.

My newborn daughter runs the risk of being over-pampered these days…. I just can’t get enough of her and that “odeur de bébé”!

We LOVE the Mustela products! I have two different baby washes in our shower: the Zwitsal and the Mustela! 🙂 I go back and forth between which one I like the best! 🙂
My favourite thing about visiting France (okay, maybe not my favourite thing, but it’s up there) are the pharmacies! They have so many wonderful must-haves! I always stock up on Mustela when I’m in France!

I got all my friends in London hooked on Zwitsal, I just LOVE that smell.
But true, Mustela is great as well, and I agree with Court, French pharmacies ARE addictive!

I just did a post about Mustela on my blog today. Great minds think alike I suppose. My oldest has eczema and I have found their products to work the best!

We also love Mustela…I am an especially big fan of their newborn foam shampoo and their creams. The smell is heavenly. I also love Weleda’s baby lotion which I used to buy at Harley’s in South Ken.

I love the Mustela product as well and being a french person in London I was quite disapointed when I could not found the products in the UK. I have searched on line and have found a Fensh website that delivers in England. Give it a try it is great for all your favourite french products…..
