I purchased this after a friend had recommended it. I am almost finished with the 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 expending your body!
I have been using this mothers balm twice daily since I first found out I was pregnant and have been thrilled with it all the way through. I am now 32 weeks pregnant (expecting twins!) and so far have not got any stretch marks - which apparently is quite unusual for twin pregnancies. I firmly believe this cream is responsible for this - it is incredibly soothing and helps prevent tightening and itching of the skin. I will continue with the balm right through until the birth and afterwards but cannot rate it highly enough to other customers.
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.
As far as pregnancy moisturing goes, this one is probably my best recommendation. I used two jars in total during my pregnancy and supplemented with other brand towards the end. nIt lasts for a long time and I used it not just around my tummy area but used it as body moisturiser. Use it just after you have bath or shower for the max effect. It has the most natural smell and I had no problem using it (I had a very sensitive smell for all cosmetics and other things during my pregnancy). The only thing is that it is greasy (well I guess that's the way it should be). My mum and sitsers never had stretch marks during their pregnancy so I probably won't - so I can't say if this actually 'prevents' stretch marks or not. But it certainly keeps your skin moist and supple which you really need when your skin is being stretched to a max amount during pregnancy. I will recommend this product to any pregnant women.
I'm 38 weeks pregnant and have used this from about 10 weeks pregnant. I have had stretch marks in the past during a growth spurt so thought I would definitely get them from pregnancy. So far so good, not a stretch mark in sight. I use every night before bedtime, and a small amount some mornings during third trimester. Convinced this balm has saved me from stretch marks and is worth every penny. Leaves your skin so soft and it's nice to know you're using 100% organic ingredients on baby bump. Will be buying this as a gift for any newly pregnant friends! Love it.
I love love love this product. Have been using it since 14 weeks, it's unscented but smells slightly sweet and beeswaxy. Now at 22 weeks and using this daily to keep skin moisturised. It's smooth and sinks in easily - feels really comforting (great to use in the evening, skin still feels smooth and supple the next day). A little goes a long way, which is just as well as there's more of me now! Totally recommend this for bump and boobs ;-)
I was only about 15 weeks pregnant when I have noticed little stretch marks on my belly. I started using this cream morning and evening for the rest of my pregnancy and couldnt 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 recommend!
Initially got this in the new mother gift set, and I have to say, its the best stretch mark cream I have used. nI prefer something that is a bit more substantial, with a thicker consistency, rather than the liquid-y runny oils you get with bio oil and such. This oil is a bit more solidified, more like a butter and melts in your hands on application so you can spread it around your belly. Am 24 weeks and have started experiencing very itchy skin, and tried a few of the other high street brands out there but this is the only one that actually stops the itching and soothes the skin. nIt really lasts and is absorbed by my belly overnight that my skin is really soft and itch free for the entire next day until I come to apply again at night. nA bit pricey for a cream, but this hasn't stopped me purchasing the full sized tub; it stops the itching, calms the skin, moisturises area applied, and is not drippy!
This product is the best for stretching belly during pregnancy. I'm on 30th week and I don't have any stretch mark. The product is so intensive that even after 24 hrs I can feel it on my belly. It's organic, safe, no harm to you and the baby! I highly recommend it!
I used it during my 2 pregnancies and absolutely LOVED This cream! I dont have any marks after having my 2 kids and think its largely thanks to using it every day! Great smell, and such a relief especially in last weeks - Just watch out for your bed sheets. Open a shop in Brussels please!
I'm at 27 weeks and love this product. The only issue I have is that to me, this "fragrance free" cream smells like earwax. Because of the smell, I've tried several other creams but none compare at all to this one. So if you end up crinkling your nose at it like I do each time, just wash your hands after and move on. It works too well not to use!!
