What’s your favorite baby essential? One of mine is Mustela baby products. I’ve been using this brand since my first baby was born, almost 12 years ago. At the time I only knew about their lotion and newborn shampoo, which I loved for its lasting soft fragrance and hypo-allergenic ingredients.
Over time I’ve used many baby products from Johnson and Johnson, Aveeno, Honest, California Baby, Baby Mantra and Noodle and Boo. I’m personally not a big fan of the cheaper Johnson and Johnson and Aveeno lines. I do like California Baby Calendula cream and Honest Company’s belly and nipple balms. I make my rounds but one brand I always keep coming back to is Mustela because I can’t get enough of its fragrance and gentleness. I love it so much that I used it on my daughters until they outgrew the baby stage.
Fast forward two children, Mustela is now fully stocked with these amazing baby essentials such as:
- Cleaning foam
- Massage oil
- Diaper cream
- Musti baby spray
- Cleansing water
- Hydra stick
- Baby wipes (Both scented and non-scented)
- Healing balm
- Stelatria line
I know there are many non-scented natural options out there but it’s hard for me to give up the fresh baby scent. If you’re a mother you would know that there is no greater feeling than smelling your babe’s hair and skin throughout the day. It’s been proven that such sensory bonding can even prevent postpartum depression for mothers!
I love Mustela because all its products are hypo-allergenic. This means they don’t contain irritants and are specially formulated to minimize allergic reactions. None of my three children has shown sensitivity to Mustela products, which makes me trust its gentleness.
My son has dry skin and minor eczema and needs to be moisturized often, at least 2-3 times a day. Here is how I use Mustela products to keep dryness away from his sensitive skin.
1. Hydra Stick for dry spots
I like to use this hydra stick on dry spots of his body like his arms and legs. It also works well on his cheeks. It’s easier than lotion and cream because it glides right on like deodorant. It’s also perfectly sized to fit into a purse or diaper bag.
2. Musti baby spray in between baths
I don’t use any fragrance on myself anymore because of the baby. But I do love using this spray on him in between baths because I wash him every other day. I find that washing him daily irritates his skin and dries him out. Even a little goes a long way and keeps him smelling fresh.
3. Massage oil after bath time
I like to use the massage oil all over his body after a bath. Massage is great for bonding for both mom and the baby. It makes him smell so good and puts him to sleep shortly after, every time!
4. Cleansing water on stinky bottom
This is another favorite product of mine and I use it daily. It’s perfect to keep his bottom clean throughout the day after diaper blow outs or when it just feels dirty. I pump a little onto a cotton ball and rub it all over his diaper area.
5. Diaper cream for rash prevention
I love the Mustela diaper cream! I don’t use this daily but whenever I find him slightly red and irritated. He has never gotten diaper rashes since he was born, thanks to this cream.
6. Stelatria cream for irritated skin
I’ve been using this Stelatria cream for my son’s irritated skin. He’s teething and drooling a lot so he gets rashes and irritated skin right under his neck. I use this once to twice a day and I see an immediate improvement the day after, except it’s still hard to keep the folds of his neck completely dry. This product has very light fragrance, not as scented as their original line.
Overall, I’m a huge fan of Mustela baby products for its fresh baby scent and hypo-allergenic and natural ingredients. I’ve used Mustela products on all three of my children and none of them has shown sensitivity to this brand. I also love that the fragrance is lasting and not overpowering, and that there’s such a wide variety of products specifically formulated for baby skincare.

I’ve never used Mustela! We typically use Vaseline Intensive Care on my son’s eczema.
I haven’t tried Mustela! I need to 🙂
I’ve seen these products but never used them…thanks for the ideas, I”m excited to try them out!
Yes you should definitely give it a try. It’s my go-to brand!
I haven’t used these products before. I have to keep these in mind. Thanks! Your post is detailed and very helpful!
I’m so glad you found it helpful. You should try it, I’m certain you will like it!
I first learned about Mustela 13 years ago when I worked at a local baby store. So many great products!
Yes I agree. It’s one brand I keep coming back to.
I have never heard of this brands but we are in Ohio where it can be really dry in the winter and these products would be perfect.
Yes this brand will be perfect for that weather. I like that the line is very extensive too
I’ve never heard of this brand before but am anxious to try it and smell it!
It smells so good, you will love the fragrance!
I love baby products with that amazing fresh baby smell.
Yes me too. Baby smell is hard to give up. 😉
I don’t think I’ve ever seen this brand before but it looks great! Both my kids had some eczema when they were little and it flares up every now and then so that stick would be great to have on hand.
The stick is one of my favorites. It glides on, smells good and works well!
My babies have all had sensitive skin in some degree or another so I’ve tried many different products, but never this brand! I might have to pick some up next time I’m at the store!
Yes you need to try this brand. It smells good and works well on dry skin.
I have never heard of this brand. We use Bert’s Bees and Honest products. The Hydra Stick sounds like something we could use in the winter.
I tried both and liked some of the products. Hydra stick works well, it’s like extra moisturizing stick. It’s pocket sized too.
What a precious babe! J&J is total garbage! This was a great switch. I also make my own baby products with EO’s. 🙂
Ooh, that sounds great! Do you have a tutorial?
I think this was the one brand that I hadn’t tried for my little dudes sensitive skin. Definitely going to try this line if we have another little babe.
Yes it’s definitely worth a try. It’s my favorite and got-brand for all three of my kids.
I really love their products!
We used the Mustela cradle cap foam shampoo when my daughter was a newborn/infant. It worked so well! She had the least cradle cap issues out of my 3 kids.
I’ve seen this brand, but never used it. My kids have sensitive skin. We use Honest Company products & Aveeno. I LOVE YOUR BLOG!!
