Shop Spotlight: Bébé de Luxe

SMALL BUSINESS FEATURE
luxury bathtime products made in vancouver, bc

A few months back I was introduced to Bébé de Luxe through friends raving about it on Instagram. I started following their account and ended up winning a giveaway for some product shortly after following. My knowledge on their product was pretty slim at the time but I was so excited to see what everybody was so excited about.

After receiving my package in the mail, I planned a bath time to myself, gave the tub a major scrub and grabbed a candle and magazine to make the experience that much more relaxing. It wasn’t when I was in the bath that won me over, it was way before that, the moment I opened my jar and got the sweet smells of a coconut and oatmeal cookie.  Time has passed since that first bath and I am so happy to say that since then I have formed a relationship with Amanda, founder of Bébé de Luxe, and I am so pleased to share more about her and Bébé de Luxe with you.

Bebe De Luxe Luxury bath product

Amanda is not only a mompreneur with Bébé de Luxe but she also works full-time as a senior paralegal at a large downtown law firm. In the evenings she works hard to keep up with the Bebe Deluxe demand as well as spends time with her husband and son. I love how she describes herself as, “part granola and part luxury baby.”

Bébé de Luxe started as a DIY Christmas gift last year for Amanda’s friends and families, which was sprung from an “I can do that” moment that Amanda had not too long before that. All of her friends and family loved the gift and started suggesting to Amanda that she start selling. “I hummed and hawed for a couple months, keeping it in the back of my mind, the thought kept nagging at me and eventually, my husband and I discussed we would put 1K into the idea,” said Amanda.

After sending a bunch of samples to other local bloggers and mompreneurs Amanda was able to receive great honest feedback that allowed her to perfect her packaging and design. Orders started to come in and her first stockist, Delish General Store on Granville Island, ordered product for their shelves at the end of April. Since then, business has been steadily growing, stockists can’t keep the product on their shelves and Amanda works the constant struggle to keep up with orders and being a full-time momma (seriously we have a super mom on our hands, am I right?).

All of Bébé de Luxe‘s products are made with certified organic or organic practice Ingredients. (Organic practice can mean small farmers who can’t necessarily afford to go through the certification process) Amanda would never use any products that could be potentially harmful for our babies, and describes her ingredients to include “no nasties”.

“Currently we have our original Coconut & Oat Milk Bath, it is a luxury bath wash/soak for babies, ladies and men who love to be pampered.  It is great for any issues with dry skin, rashes and we have even had fantastic feedback from people suffering with eczema,” shares Amanda. These products stand out in the marketplace as Amanda has put so much attention to detail in the product itself to the finer details of packaging and shipping.

“We are also expanding our line with a bespoke baby bar specially formulated for us by my friend Corina at Corus Body Care.  I had been using Corina’s own baby bar on Rian for those particularly dirty-boy days and knew a collaboration with Corsus was the way to go. Made with organic practice ingredients, including olive oil, cocoa butter and coconut milk it is perfect for those days when baby needs a more thorough cleaning (think dirty little piggy feet from running around barefoot in the summer to those nasty diaper explosions).”

I love how much Amanda raves about Corina of Corsus Body Care. Amanda has dabbled in soap making a few times but never felt like she was the expert, this is when she knew that it would be beneficial to team up with Corina, who Amanda knows is an expert at her craft. “In order to give my customers the best of the best, I need to work with the best of the best and realize my own limitations.”

“I’m also working with Angela of KEWE Clothing, and just launched a collaborative Bébé de Luxe onesie.  Cannot wait to see your Luxury Babies in our stylish gear!” Each item that is within the Bébé de Luxe line isn’t released until it is perfect, and that is no surprise as each item breathes luxury and elegance.

When I asked advice from Amanda for someone starting out their own business she shared that the first thing she learnt was to be patient. She continued to explain that, “nothing, and I mean nothing, will happen as quickly as you want it to. Everything takes time, especially if you are a bit of a perfectionist.”

“Being an entrepreneur can be exhausting and feel overwhelming at times, but nothing feels better than seeing your “baby” on the shelves of some of your favourite stores and seeing pictures of the cutest littles bathing in a product their mommies can trust.  The sense of pride you feel is beyond rewarding.  “

Amanda has a lot of plans for Bébé de Luxe some of which are short term collaborations that she is so excited to share in the coming months, as well as long term goals. If things continue the way they are going Amanda will be looking at hiring help and continuing to grow the Bébé de Luxe line by expanding to Mama and Papa De luxe products too!

  • Got to hang with some goats and do a little toga today, with about 400 other people. Have you tried goat yoga? Would you??
  • There’s some new faces around here and it’s been a while since I did a little intro, an about me per se... just a little bit more random.

1. I’ve lived in the same town my whole life. Some may think it’s boring.. I’d call it loyal 😅 .. either way, I know a lot about Abbotsford.
2. If you hold your hand up, palm facing away from you. Pull your thumb back and see how far you can go. Mine can touch the back of my arm, it’s forever been my “talent”.
3. It’s been 5 years (almost to the day) since I started my blog. Growing up I wanted to be a nurse, then went to school to be a police officer, changed gears into business and marketing, graduated with graphic design and its led me to hear. I never had big goals or felt like I was on the right path, but motherhood and this space has brought me all the feels.
4. We’ve been looking for land to grow some flowers of our own. My husband grew up on a flower farm (both the peonies and iris’ pictured are from their farm), property prices can just go ahead and come down a little now.
5. I don’t know if the feeling of being done is for real.. like we feel like we are done having kids but I’d be fibbing if I said it doesn’t come to mind every now and again.

That’s all for now friends. Share a little something about you below — say hi if you are new hear and thanks for reading til the end 🥰🙌🏻
  • Throwing it back to the other day when I went for an evening dip with my beaver @float.eh — it was such a hoot heading to the beach with @juliechristine_xo and gave me a peek into how much fun this summer is going to be.⠀ ⠀
#ad As you can see these aren’t your typical floaties... or should I say @float.eh ’s 😉 They are proudly Canadian, made with quality in mind. You gotta check out their website and see what other fun Canadian designs they have. [ go to float-eh.ca or see my story highlights for the link ] 🇨🇦
  • “When’s the last time you did something for the first time?” Those were words spoken to our group before starting our Tough Mudder course this past weekend in Whistler. Holy moly guys, I was nervous getting started on that course. Let’s just say... nervous shits are real 😅😂🙊 but that’s what makes it so great. Doing something that literally scares the shit outta you. We all pushed through, all 16km and 25 obstacles and it was FUN, hard but really freaking fun. Even though I’m hobbling around today, dang foot cramp (and literally sore all over) I’m so pumped on doing something new, pushing myself and having such an amazing group of friends tackle it together.

PS our men of tough mudder not pictured but SO equally appreciated.
