Must have product!
on May 3, 2012
As a physician, I realize that stretch marks are predominately related to genetics... but that doesn't mean I was going to roll over and let whatever stretch marks occur! My mother has some of the worst stretch marks I have ever seen on a person.... But at 38 weeks currently (and VERY big... I have been asked if I was having twins several times by different people), I will have to say, I think this product has delivered as much as it is capable! I have yet to have a stretch mark crop up!
I started using mama mio oil at about 12 weeks, twice a day (morning and night).. and also after showers. It is oily going on, but soaks in very quickly. One of the greatest benefits, is that it greatly reduced itchy skin!!! Well worth it for that alone. I also had been given some Palmer's Coco Butter and had bought Bella B Tummy Honey Butter... I found the Mama Mio superior to each of them. The Palmer's seemed to clump up and get stuck onto my clothes when I put it on my very taught tummy (great for elbows and hands though). I found the texture of the Bella B Tummy Honey Butter to be slightly gross. It had a gritty consistency and did not absorb well into the skin. The Mama mio tummy oil definitely has a greasy feel at first, but I felt absorbed in quickly. Of the three, I preferred the ease of application, the light scent, and the long term feel of my tummy.
