So, this review has been a while in the making, and for that I apologize. But I just wanted to make sure I got this review absolutely perfect, because the items in this review ARE perfect! I had so much fun with this one!
So what am I talking about? Earth Mama Angel Baby!
So, I don’t even know where to begin with this review! There’s so many good things to say about Earth Mama Angel Baby! So to begin, I should tell you a little bit about them!

“Cruelty-free, certified vegan, kosher, and 100% free from toxic ingredients – that means no Quaternium-15, 1,4-Dioxane, formaldehyde, phthalates, petrochemicals, parabens, SLS, artificial preservatives, artificial fragrances or dyes.”
A Little Something for Mama-to-Be
The first thing we got to take a look at was a kit called “A little something for mama-to-be.”This kit has quite the selection of goodies for mama-to-be. And even though I’m not pregnant, I still decided to try some of it out! Hey, it can’t hurt anything!
The kit comes with mint herbal lip balm, happy feet herbal foot soak, and natural stretch oil. My favorite part was the lip balm. It smelled good, and it really helped moisturize my lips! I can also see how it’d be great when you’re pregnant, because it’s so easy to get chapped lipped when you’re pregnant, especially if you forget to drink enough water.
I liked the natural stretch oil too! I used some of it on my stretch marks! Now, I wasn’t fond of the smell, but I loved how it made my skin feel. It didn’t smell bad, just not a scent I’m a fan of. But it made my skin feel so soft afterwards! I’m going to keep using it, and I can update you guys on how my stretch marks look when I run out!
The foot soak was a blast. I tried to get a few minutes alone in the bathroom by myself to soak my feet, and read some of my childbirth books, but my daughter wandered in (without knocking, of course!) and decided to join me. I wish Maryah would have been here, because then we could have taped the two of us splashing around in the tub of pretty-smelling herbal water!
Breastfeeding Support Kit
Breastfeeding is important, many moms know this, but regardless of how important it is, it sure dosen’t make it easy! That’s where Earth Mama Angel Baby steps in, lightening the stresses that can be associated with breastfeeding, such as sore, swollen aching breast, concern over milk supple, as well as dealing the the unpleasant experience of cracked/dry/chapped nipples.
This kit was probably my second favorite (I’ll get to my absolute favorite in a minute!). This one is the breastfeeding support kit. The name really does say it all here! This kit has milkmaid tea containing herbs that act as galactologues (promote lactation) and help increase and maintain your milk supply. It’s got “Booby tubes” which are little sacks filled with flax seed oil and can be warmed or cooled to help relieve any kind of pressure, swelling, or engorgement of the breasts. Have you ever heard of cabbage helping with engorgement? Well, they’ve even got an herbal compress containing cabbage!
But, my favorite part of this kit was the nipple butter. The nipple butter is lanolin free, which is great. For those of you who aren’t sure what the big fuss about lanolin-free products is, or don’t even know what lanolin is;
“Lanolin is a fatty substance extracted from wool, which is frequently found in cosmetics and lotions. Lanolin is a common skin sensitiser that can cause allergic reactions, such as skin rashes.”
The problem is, when lanolin is used on the nipples and not washed off thoroughly before baby nurses, it can upset their stomach and even cause diarrhea! That’s why this nipple butter is so great! It’s completely lanolin free, but is soothing and gentle to the skin, helping treat sore, cracked, dry and uncomfortable nipples!
Now, onto my very favorite part!
A Little Something for Baby
This kit was by far my favorite out of all of them! After all, who doesn’t love being able to spoil and pamper their little one?
The “A Little Something for Baby” kit had all sorts of goodies in it! The first thing we tried was the baby bottom balm! It’s a natural bottom balm for diaper rashes that doubles as a first aid cream, so it’s not just for baby’s bum! We actually ended up using it on a cat scratch later!
It also had a lotion for baby. Smelled like oranges and cream. I like the lotion, but not nearly as much as I liked the shampoo! The shampoo baby wash was by far my favorite thing out of everything!
I loved it so much! It smelled like oranges and tangerines! I am officially an convert. I will no longer buy the cheap off-brand baby shampoos at the store, when my baby can smell like this! I absolutely loved it! It’s a foaming baby wash, which made it fun too! My daughter loved playing with the foam and helping wash her hair! It really was amazing!
