The first time I came across Mamaearth was when I was looking for an insect repellent for my baby. I came across their Natural Insect Repellent With Cintronella & Lemon Eucalyptus Oil . I was instantly hooked as this was one repellent which was 100% natural and Deet –Free. I have been using it since then and am very satisfied and happy that my baby is not exposed to harsh chemicals. So, when I heard that they are coming out with a natural, toxin free range of beauty products, specially created for mothers on Mother’s Day, I could not wait to try these out. I was sent three of their products to try out and here is my honest review.
Mamaearth has brought a complete new range of hair & beauty products for healthier happier mamas; which are free of any harmful chemicals and Toxins. They are Asia’s 1st ‘Made Safe’ certified brand. All their products are free of Parabens, Sulfates, Mineral Oils, Dyes & Synthetic Fragrances. Thus, making them extremely safe for you and your baby. I have tried 3 of their products from their mama range and you can find the rest of their mama and baby products on their website Mamaearth.in All their products are also available on Amazon
These are the 3 products that I was sent to review:
- Mamaearth Argan Hair Mask
- Mamaearth Calming Body wash
- Mamaearth Nourishing Body Lotion
These came with an extremely cute toiletry bag on which I was crushing on the moment I saw it.
The 1st thing that I did upon opening the package was check the ingredients list and I was relieved when I saw the names of the non toxic ingredients and the added ingredient ‘Secret Mama’s Love Oil’. The products are
- Phalates Free
- Pararben Free
- Mineral Oil Free
- SLS Free
I have been using the products regularly since the past 10 days and I will share the review of each of these here one by one.
Mamaearth Argan Hair Mask
Motherhood brings a lot of changes in your body and most of them are not what you had hoped for. And though it is true that you are beautiful no matter how much you change but still we mothers do try to get back to our former self as much as possible. But the life of a mother is such that it is rare that she can take care of herself as she did earlier, and in my case my hair has suffered a lot of neglect from me. I have been suffering from constant hair loss and frankly I have not been doing much about it either. It is also much drier and frizzier than before since I moved to a new place. Last week, I had a hair cut for the first time in 1 ½ years, so that is the level of neglect I have done. Thus I was excited to try out this new hair mask for some much needed pampering.
The Mask comes in a wide mouthed jar and it is very convenient to scoop out a handful of the product. It can be used as a rinse off or leave in conditioner and you should use a generous amount on wet towel dried hair. It contains :
- Argan & Avocado oil & Curd Extraxts
- Follicusan which is a milk based signalling protein
- Goodness of Collagen
The 1st thing that I liked immensely was that it is Non – Drip.
It dries and sticks to your hair. Call me crazy, but I HATE any of the masks which are slippery and keep dripping all over my face. It just gives me an Ugghhh feeling. But this one doesn’t. You can actually apply it after bath and walk out of the bathroom with it still on your head. As a mom you may realize how hard it is to spend 20 mins in the bathroom. And the mask needs to left for 15 mins, so I apply it and then go about doing my work and quickly wash it off after 15 mins. I have seen a massive reduction in hairfall just after 3 washes and my hair is also much smoother. I am really happy with the product and am hoping that further use will make my hair much better.
Package & Price : 200 gm for INR 599
Mamaearth Calming Body wash
This one comes in a long wide bottle with a nozzle and a double cap. Making it completely spill proof during travel, though the size is not something I would generally carry when I travel as I prefer carrying smaller bottles. The body wash
- contains Aloe Vera , Allantonin, & vitamin E
- uses Coconut based Cleansers.
Now here is where Mamaearth completely bowled me over, this product proved its mettle to me in just one wash and it is clearly the winner of the three for me.
Why? Well I generally do not use too much of body washes or lotions. I have been thankfully blessed with soft, hydrated skin apart from the skin on my feet (those look like dead fish and demand the most care from me). But after moving to this new hot & humid place I have had a small patch of dry skin come up on one of my elbows (inside) recently and it has been itchy and bothering me. It was just on that particular small inch of an area and nowhere else on my body. I have been applying all sorts of creams and lotions and body washes on that particular patch. Trust me, One wash with this body wash and my skin felt much better and the dryness subsided. After a week of using this and my skin is healed and I no longer can see the dryness on my arm. This body wash has now earned the place of permanence in my bathroom atleast.

Mamaearth Nourishing Body Lotion
As I said I do not use lotions on a daily basis, but I used this one a few times on my hands and arms and it is quite light and the Shea butter and Cocoa butter makes the skin feel smoother. I have used this though religiously on my dead fish look alike feet. And they are worth it I would say. Using it once in the day keeps my feet sufficiently soft and hydrated. It is not very sticky and quickly gets absorbed into the skin. It has a very light fragrance.

Finally, I would say that I am happy that there is a company which cares enough to note the needs of moms and babies and is coming up with such natural, safe products. I will keep you posted on how these products prove to be in the long run. And will be on the lookout for more amazing products from them. Keep watching my blog and insta spaces for more such updates and reviews if you are not already doing so. Be happy and take care.
