Awesome Prenatal Products by Mustela
Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!
I am so happy to share with you that I am almost half way through my pregnancy which mean going to get to see our second baby soon. So excited to check out Sofea’s reaction on that. Since this is my second pregnancy, can’t help but to noticed that the symptoms are different and it is totally a new journey. This time around it is quite challenging physically but more soothing mentally.
Why do I say so? This time around the urge to vomit is just overwhelming and on the other hand I am more relax not as nervous because I have given birth before. So, mentally I am less paranoid. I am also very happy as stretch mark are so much lesser , actually it is close to non-visible this round because I have been using Mustela product diligently. Back to main reason I am writing this post. Couple of months ago, I am reached out by Mustela Malaysia to try out their latest Range of Mustela Martenite . In fact, I am one of the first consumer to try it out before it will only be launch to the market by Aug , 2016.
Knowing that Mustela products shared the same value that I have especially when it comes to using only the best natural and safe ingredients.. I just can’t help but to feel excited.
There are 3 products that I tried and I love them all. Wish they have it in a travel size as well so I could bring them around in my purse. I like to used their products after hygine routine as in shower etc but for the leg gels been using it every know and then haha… Let’s start with the first product, shall we?
Soothing Moisturizing Balm
This product contained 200ml in a tube. It helps to sooth the skin, while moisturizing and by then it wil lalso help to reduce the sensation of itching. I just have to admit, I didnt have icthing sensation at my tummy area after using this product. It is also clinically proven on its efficacy. You can get out their website for more details on that. Personally, I find that the product absorb quickly into my skin leaving a nice supple feeling. The scent was very minimum which exactly how I like it to be. It does not leave any sticky feeling as well.
Incase you are wondering what are the hero ingridients for this Soothing Moisturizing Balm, check out below :-
- Avocado Peptides, a patented ingredient of natural origin helps relieve sensations of tightness, reinforces skin elasticity and leaves the skin feeling supple and comfortable.

Stretch Marks Prevention Cream
This product came in 150ml in a tube. This is designed specially for strecth mark prevention. The thing I learned about stretch mark is that you have to take care of your skin from the early stages of pregnancy. Making sure it is hydrated it the most crucial part. The thing is when our skin is dry and it start to strech as baby is growing the effect is cushion it our skin is hydrated.
Like the soothing balm, this Stretch Marks Prevention Cream also contained avocado peptides to enforce skin elasticity and apart from that it also contained : -
- Galactoarabinan, a patented stretch mark care ingredient extracted from the Larch tree, promotes elasticity, keeps skin supple and helps it to withstand from stretching.
- Beewax and shea butter provide moisturization and nourishment, leaving skin feeling soft.
All products in Mustela Maternite range are Safe for mom and baby. On top of that, it is also Hypoallergenic and compatible with breastfeeding. It contained no nasty ingridients like parabens, phthalates, phenoxyethanol, bisphenols A and S, caffeine and alcohol. This product came in two variant of subtle fragrance or the fragrance-free version.
I like it because it is non oily, it hydrate without leaving any greasy feeling. Even if I move around and sweat no product transfer as in it absorb completely during application. Sometime I like to keep them in the fridge and enjoy a nice cooling sensation when I apply it to my skin.

Light Legs Gel
Here is the last products I am going to share with you and it is actually my top favourite out of them three! This product contained 125ml and it makes my pregnancy journey way bearable. during pregnancy, our body pilled up weight and for that it sometime hurt our our feet as we are not used to the amount of extra weight. For me, walking around takes so much effort compared to when I am not pregnant. I tend to have sore legs every now and then. Well during this moments, Light Legs Gel are just my go to remedy. It gave and instant relax sensation and also making it my leg feels lighter.
The science behind are contributed by the active ingridients :-
-Avocado peptides, a patented ingredient of natural origin soothes and calms the skin.
-Menthol extract immediately refreshes and provides relaxation and comfort.
My husband is also happy as he hear lesser whinning about sore legs during my second pregnancy. haha.. anyway you may also store this Light Leg Gels in your fridge and enjoy the soothing and cooling sensation as applied. I love this product very much and will surely replenish once I run out of it. Atleast till I gave birth.
