Before becoming a Mum I had no idea how much of my time would be spent talking about and worrying about baby bums, nappies and their contents, yes gross I know. I also had NO idea how many nappies I would be changing over the next 10 years, although I think I had a bit of a break in between Finlay and Ava. Over the years I have come across and used lots of different nappy creams and today I wanted to talk to you about Mustela’s 123 vitamin barrier cream.
Ava has always had sensitive skin and not only that but allergies. If you have an allergic baby or child you will probably know that chances are if they come into contact with something their body doesn’t like then their skin reacts to it too. Unfortunately for Ava if she eats something her body doesn’t like not only does it affect her tummy, she will also get a rash or sore when it comes out and touches her bum in the nappy. I’ve previously found creams that use zinc oxide to be the most effective at clearing things up but it’s not something I would put on at every nappy change. This is why Mustela’s barrier cream is so great, it prevents and clears in 3 steps.
Importantly for me and Ava’s delicate skin in contains 0% fragrance and 0% preservatives and 98% of its ingredients are from natural origin including Avocado, sunflower and beeswax. The cream is also white meaning no staining if it gets on anything by accident.
When using the Mustela 123 vitamin barrier cream I found it easy to apply, it’s also easy to remove from your own hands. It lasted between nappy changes and not only that the tube lasts well too. It smells pleasant but not overpowering and felt safe to apply to delicate skin. I’ve been really impressed with it and Ava has had no real sore bum issues since we have been using it. If she gets a rash with a reaction and we for some reason didn’t already have it on to protect her skin the cream is quick in clearing it up. I would definitely recommend this cream to my Mummy friends.
