Seriously Gorgeous Tummy Rub Oil
I was delighted when the lovely Bundle O Joy agreed to let me review some of their Mamas Belly Rub Stretch Mark Oil by Shea Mooti. I was lucky enough not to get stretch marks in my previous pregnancy but having read lots of reports from people who still got them second time round, I did not want to take it for granted.
I don't like being covered in greasy sticky creams and lotions so was on the look out for a light oil or cream which would keep me moisturised and hopefully help relieve some of the dreadful itching.
This is a non greasy skin conditioning oil that is loaded with Omega 3, 6, 9 enriched oils especially formulated for use before, during and beyond pregnancy. Shea Mooti claim regular use of the Belly rub oil helps to prevent stretch marks, maintain supple skin, optimum elasticity and promote growth through out the coming months. It has some amazing ingredients including; oragnic baobab oil, mandarin essential oil, rosehip, shea and wheatgerm oil. For a more detailed description of the ingredients and how they work click here
I've only been using it for a week so can't vouch for all of the above but what I can tell you is my tummy feels soft and supple. I was impressed that although its oil based its not at all greasy. The fragrance is also light and subtle. I don't know about you but I'm not to keen on strong scented products as by the time you've applied deodorant and perfume, it can be all too much, especially when you have the super sensitive sense of smell often associated with pregnancy.
It retails at £14.99 for a 100ml bottle which in my opinion makes it a little bit of a luxury product and as pregnancy is a time for luxuries I personally think it's worth it. I love it and so does my 2 year old son who thinks his bump needs it too.
