"Showering Mommy & Baby" Giveaway Event! - Maternitique Review & Giveaway

By Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) at 12:09 AM

**CLOSED**

Winner: Random.org #64 -Princess Mom




-Winner has been emailed & they will have 48 hours to respond-
A Thank you to Maternitique & to all of you wonderful readers who entered! :)

---------------------


When I found Maternitique and browsed around their site I instantly fell in love with everything I saw. Maternitique carries a whole skin care line to have happier mothers, ease the birthing experience and have healthier babies. They believe it is their mission to help women look their best, feel their best and do their best throughout pregnancy, birth and motherhood.

What if I told you that that an average of 200 chemicals, including 180 known to cause cancer, were recently found in newborn blood? As mother's it is our job to protect our little ones right from the very start. Even with our powerful placentas it just isn't enough to block out the dangerous chemicals absorbed by our skin, breathed in our air and consumed through our food. Our only option is to do our best to buy from people that create healthier, safer products right?
Well Maternitique does just that. Maternitique chooses brands that avoid ingredients identified as reproductive toxins (phthalates, for example), carcinogens or teratogens (substances that cause or contribute to birth defects). They actually go out and educate themselves before buying a product. If products include herbs or nutritional supplements, they ensure that they have been formulated with medical oversight and are recommended by midwives and doctors for safe use during pregnancy.

Furthermore, Maternitique is a signer of the Truth in Labeling Pledge, sponsored by the Natural Ingredient Resource Center. So you will always know what's in the products you buy so you can make the choices that are right for you & your family.

See, I told you I instantly fell in love with Maternitique and everything they stand for.

I was ecstatic when I was given the opportunity to review a product from their vedaMAMA line & a product from their vedaBABY line!
I chose the "vedaMAMA Refresh: Stretch Mark Reducing Body Cream" & the "vedaBABY Fresh".

The vedaMAMA Refresh: Stretch Mark Reducing Body Cream has been a blessing, lemme tell you! First off, I hate creams that are too much like lotion, sorta watery or whatever... so I am always nervous to try out new products.
This is definitely NOT your typical cream! It is creamy and smooth but thick at the same time and it has never left me feel oily after application. I use it twice a day, once in the AM and once after my nightly shower. I do like the feel of my skin afterward when I apply it after my shower a little more then just applying it "randomly" in the morning but either way it makes my belly feel fantastic. I've been using it for about 2 months now and I can definitely feel a difference in how my skin feels. I got stretch marks with my first pregnancy and I truly believe I am starting to see them fade away... keep in mind they are almost 6 year old stretch marks now!
With all their products, the vedaMAMA Refresh: Stretch Mark Reducing Body Cream is free of chemicals, preservatives and artificial fragrances. It's safe to use before, during and after pregnancy as well so you don't have to worry about your baby absorbing any chemicals that came through your skin.

The vedaBABY Fresh is a calming, pH-balanced baby shampoo and body wash. It is gentle enough for daily use and suitable for babies of all skin types, but specially formulated for babies with sensitive, dry skin. With aromatherapy blends of lavender, jasmine and neroli to inspire calm during bathtime!!
Of course this will be used on Kendall in August but I did have Makenna try it out a couple times and it did leave her skin really smooth. I don't think it helped her calm down as much but then again she's a 5 year old, not a newborn, lol.

Again, like always you can expect the vedaBABY Fresh to be free of chemicals, parabens, sulfates, artificial fragrances and dyes.


Buy it:
You can buy these 2 and browse around for other great products on the Maternitique website!

Win it:
You can win the vedaBABY Baby Butt for your precious baby's bottom!
The vedaBABY Baby Butt is diaper cream that should be used with each diaper change to keep baby dry and protected from diaper irritants. A little will definitely go a long way with this cream so no more overloading baby's bottom with sticky white cream anymore!
All-natural and hypoallergenic ingredients include Grapeseed Oil, Meadowfoam Oil, Calendula and Organic Rosehip Oil.
