Unfortunately I only found out about this product after I had my daughter. I'm quite a small person and I carried an eight pound baby so loose skin was an issue for me. I tried NYR balm and after about twenty days I realised my skin seemed firmer! Would definitely recommend. It gave me hope of seeing some resemblance to my pre-pregnancy body!
I was really looking forward to receiving this but I am disappointed to say I just cannot like it. It takes so long to be absorbed and I find the the smell very unpleasant. It leaves such a dreadful greasy texture on my skin. I applied a small amount in the morning after a shower and when I returned from work it was still in a layer on my skin. I couldn't wait to get back in the shower to remove it! I don't know if this is because I've been using it in the summer on hot days? This was my first purchase from Neal's Yard and was meant to be a bit of a treat but it's really put me off. I so wanted to love it as I really believe in the ethos and principles behind Neal's Yard and was hoping for a little bit of luxury...Response from NYR on 09.08.17 'We’re really sorry to hear that you are disappointed by our Mother’s balm and if you contact our Customer Care team on firstname.lastname@example.org , they will be happy to help you'
This is basically expensive coconut oil, literally feels and acts the exact same way. Coconut is also the main ingredient. Takes a long time to soak in. Is moisturising but I wouldn't recommend it - much more effective products out there...Response from NYR on 29.06.17 'Thank you for your feedback and we're really sorry to hear of your disappointment with our Mother’s Balm. Please do contact our Customer Care team at email@example.com if you would like to discuss this further.'
I would rate this 5 stars, 10 times over! This balm was fantastic and I started applying it at the very start of my pregnancy. The earlier the better!!! I have come away with little stretch marks (none whilst actually pregnant). Unfortunately, the few I have was post pregnancy, where it would have been really helpful if NYR made perhaps more clearer on their label to continue use of the product after birth for say, 'X' amount of time. My marks appeared after birth but still I am very lucky with how few there are on the tummy, I just should of perhaps applied the product on my thighs as well. rnrnOne other recommendation to anyone using the product is to wear a vest because of the wax, the grease stains clothes, especially white tops so one way to avoid it is by adding an extra layer that you don't mind staining.rnrnApply both morning and night.
I have used this for 2 pregnancies now and have no stretch marks. I don't know if this is because of the balm or simply genetic but I have had very itchy skin which stops itching when I apply the balm and my skin feels lovely and healthy and I like knowing it's all natural. The only negative I have is that if you use it daily all over your tummy then it doesn't last the full pregnancy and I have had to buy more. I am a size 10 so I imagine this must be a common problem. I wish the tub was just that bit bigger or a smaller tub was also available to buy - like the one that comes in the gift sets. The big tub and the gift set tub combined is the right amount in my opinion.
I was only about 15 weeks pregnant when I noticed little stretch marks on my belly. I started using this cream morning and evening for the rest of my pregnancy and couldn't be happier. It really works; skin feels so smooth and soft. It stops itching too. I just bought one for my friend who recently got pregnant. Highly recommended!
I love this - it's much better than anything else I've tried and I can really tell if I forget to use it. It's incredibly soothing to use, makes skin feel really supple and prevents itching. Can't recommend it enough.
When I bought this at about 3 months I wasn't that keen on the smell, but I've been using it every night before bed and no stretch marks have appeared yet (touch wood!). It also soothes my skin when it's feeling tight and itchy, highly recommend over other products I've tried for my bump.
I purchased this after a friend had recommended it. I am almost finished with my first tube and can say it was the best thing to use during my pregnancy. It helped me keep my skin moisturised and well balanced and I don;t think my skin would've been as stretch mark free with any other product as this prevented it. I highly recommend mothers to be to use this to ensure you take care of your skin while your little one is growing inside and expanding your body!
A friend sent me a pot of this when I first fell pregnant and I cannot praise it enough. I am now 35 weeks and on my second pot. Not a single stretch mark in sight and a few that I previously had on my upper thighs have faded. I also tried this on an itchy scaly patch on my back that has irritated me for years and I can happily report it has gone! I shall continue to use this beautiful product as long as it is available;)
