We at Glamourbox have been contemplating on releasing a Mom & Baby-themed box since the beginning of this year, and we're thrilled to see it come into fruition. On a personal note, I was particularly fond of curating this box because who doesn't gush at sight of cute little babies, or anything baby-related for that matter? Also, I am quite the fan of baby products because they are gentle in nature and work well with my sensitive skin (read all about my fave baby products here).
Of course, even though the theme mostly denotes that the box is for Moms (with or without babies), the products are also selected in a way that will appeal to ladies who are into skin care. Here's a quick unboxing post of the "Beauties & Babies" Glamourbox.
I'm am really liking the pastel pink and blue theme going on here, and the fact that everything just *magically* fits perfectly in the box.
Mustela Physiobebe No-Rinse Cleansing Fluid 50ml
This is a repeat from last year's Bridal Bliss Glamourbox but still a favorite, I'm happy this was included in the box as it's one of my top gentle face cleansers/light makeup removers.
Natasha Heel Mate 25g (full-size)
I've always wanted to try a heel balm but never got around to buying one. I've been secretly testing mine for weeks now and will be posting a separate review on this (I received the Natasha Heel Mate weeks before the release of the box for review purposes). Off the bat, this really is a must-have for smooth and crack-free heels.
Bio-Oil 60ml (full size)
A cult-fave that has been used around the world to alleviate and lessen the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and uneven skin tone. Can be used by almost everyone, on any part of your body.
Sebamed Med Baby Bubble Bath 25ml
Sebamed Children's Shampoo 20ml
Both have pH value of 5.5 which means it protects skin's acid mantle and help retain moisture. The small sizes would be great for my trip to Singapore next month, good to know they can work as a shampoo and body wash.
Eden's Paradise Whitening Blue Salve
This smells really good -- sweet and yummy! It's a blue (micropeel) salve that helps lighten skin and can be used on underarms, bikini line, knees elbows, and old scars. Reminds me of the Bikini Balm from another brand that we used to hoard back in the day. It says on the ingredients list that it's mostly made up of natural ingredients such as fruit acids and various oils (RHO, jojoba, argan, etc).
Lil Tots Premium Baby Wipes 10s (2 packs)
Thick and soft, these baby wipes will come in handy for those baby boo-boos. I can use this on Epsilon also when I'm too tired to clean him up before bed.
Mustela Vitamin Barrier Cream 11g
Formulated to prevent and alleviate diaper rash, this has the signature Mustela scent (mmmm....) and contains 10% zinc oxide, Vitamin B5 and F. In my head, I wonder if this can take the place of Vandol which I've been using for years?
Mustela Stretch Marks Double Action 10ml
Contains natural ingredients to prevent and reduce new and recent stretch marks.
Mustela Nursing Comfort Balm 3g sachet
A soothing balm to be used after feeding, no need to rinse.
Milea Baby Baby Sleep Balm 3g
Lavender-scented to calm and relax our minds for sleep. I love that its tiny size can fit virtually anywhere, plus the twist-up balm is easy to apply to temples or under the nose to induce a good night's sleep.
Milea Baby Sniffles Balm 3g
One of my favorites in the box, the strong eucalyptus scent will be great alternative to those Vicks inhalers that we so often use when we have the sniffles. Can also be applied to baby's chest to relieve coughing.
Bonus: You get a 20% discount code that you can use on the Milea website.
If you have a friend who's expecting, this would make a perfect baby starter kit. It's contains a good combi of tried and tested brands (Bio-Oil, Sebamed, Mustela), plus new discoveries from Natasha and Lil Tots, as well as from natural-based local indie brands such as Milea and Eden's Paradise.
The "Beauties and Babies" Glamourbox is Php 595 and you can get them at www.glamourbox.ph. Hurry, as these come in limited quantities!
