it will not get rid of stretch marks
No product can prevent anyones skin from getting stretch marks. Coco butter has always been a great product for me and even though it didnt get rid of any supercial marks it leaves my skin feeling lovely and leave you smelling wonderful. It literally leaves your skin feeling like butter its wonderful. But dont buy it with the intention of clearing your skin because that just depends on your health and genetics.
Love it and well scented
This is the only belly butter that my bum loves during pregnancy. It keeps my skin moist and easy to rub on. Best of all, my husband loves the scent too as he used to dislike me putting on other body lotions because they smell unpleasant to him. The only let down is this product is a little pricey compared to others.
Beautiful product and smells great!
I was lucky enough to not get many stretch marks throughout my pregnancy, and I did not use this religiously...although could have had something to do with it. It does not leave your skin feeling oily and has a really nice, subtle smell. Its inexpensive and you get alot of bang for your buck.
Nourishing & Smells Great
Great product, keeps my skin soft and moisturised.
I'm in my first pregnancy and have very sensitive skin. But I went for this product, over the sensitive skin one as I have used it before and didn't develop a rash.
I starting using it to prevent stretch marks, and so far (I'm 5 months now) I dont have any new stretch marks. But I find this product the best to relive my itchy skin, especially around my breasts. It so smoothing, but slightly sticky for a minute or two after application.
It's a great massage cream for your partner to use on you. I also like the smell, but some people may ...not. I am about 2/3 of the way thru this bottle, so I will probably buy another one throughout this pregnancy. The price was okay, as I bought it on special and saved $5. I will be on lookout again from specials at the big supermarkets. Relives itching, soothes dry skin, prevents/reduces stretch marks Can be slightly sticky, but only for a minute or two
i have my first pregnancy i started to apply this cream from the 3rd month and it works really good till end of 35 week I haven't got any marks but on 36 week i had 1-2 very small mark near my tummy.i really advice to use this one.best luck.i am giving 4and half cause of the expensive.
Smell is ok,convenient pump pack,works good for rashes
pricey,sticky,some time not all the cream comes in your pump as sep. in last.
I thought this was a bit expensive for what it was. The smell wasn't great - it didn't have a pretty fragrance. However, I did use it regularly and didn't get any stretch marks - so maybe it was effective? I'm not totally convinced though.
One bottle lasted most of my pregnancy.
The smell wasn't very nice
It appears to have an added bonus of stopping itching but overall it offers a very clean and effective method of keeping my skin soft and avoiding stretch marks.
easy to use and the container is great with out the mess
the cost is high for the size of the product available
I didn't mind the smell, was easy to rub in and left my skin feeling soft. I didn't get any stretch marks on my tummy where I applied it religiously through my first pregnancy, however did in other places where I didn't apply it so I think it works well.
Convenient pump pack, large size to last entire pregnancy
A bit sticky on your hands after applied to skin
I used this through my second pregnancy to try stop some stretchmarks I had appear on my stomach. It didn't seem to fade them, but they didn't ge any worse either. In general, works well to soften the skin and provide relief from irritation.
I love most palmers products, so I have it a try. Takes a little while to absorb, so don't get dressed until ten mins. after applying it. Left the skin soft, smooth and supple and could be used as a general body moistorisor too, it worked everywhere.
The smell wasn't that nice, which is rare for palmers, didn't seem to fade the marks, but perhaps kept the skin soft enough to prevent further ones.
Great product. Good for early bonding and good for keeping yourself feeling great. Not sure I'd recommend it for completely keeping stretchmarks at bay as stretchmarks happen when there is a sudden change in weight. No cream out there can honestly guarantee to prevent them but they can reduce the severity. This was good for that as my stretchmarks weren't very big or very red when they appeared. Great product!
When used while pregnant it was a good way to get some alone time with bub and to massage your tummy. It often work him/her up when I wa...
I would definitely recommend this product. It is a lovely feeling and effective moisturiser, in an easy to dispense pump pack.
I really liked the smell! Non greasy and left skin feeling lovely and supple. I didn't have a single stretch mark. Pump pack easy to use.
Nothing in particular.
Overall this is a decent moisturiser, but when the bottle runs out I will be looking for another good one with a much nicer smell as this one tended to make me feel a bit ill!
Made my skin feel ever so soft and really helped make my stretchmarks fade, moisturised my skin and yet still let it breathe, stopped the itchiness around my bump, was perfect for my elbows which suffered dry skin also, relatively cheap for a good moisturiser
It has a really awful smell but luckily it fades away after an hour or so and the pump kept getting stuck on the bottle
I used the product the whole time I was pregnant with my son and I have no stretch marks at all. Whether that was a result of using this moisturiser or not I don't know. But I will be using it for any future pregnancies. I recommend it to all my pregnant friends aswell.
Not too greasy. Rubs in easily. The pump pack is convienient and easy to use.
Isn't the nicest smelling moisturiser I've used.
I bought this and used it all throughout pregnancy and for awhile afterward. I think it has helped, but as it was my first I have no idea if if would have been any different otherwise!
Applies well. Don't need to use a lot.
Doesn't have a very nice smell. The pump doesn't work well when there's not much left - have to turn upside down and just tap cream out of bottle.
