Now that my pregnancy is over and baby Green has arrived in the world I thought it would be the perfect time to take a look at some of the products I tested during my pregnancy. As I got some nasty stretch marks with my first baby, this pregnancy I have been diligent about moisturising twice a day and happily it paid off as I managed to get away with no new stretch marks at all! I used a variety of products throughout the pregnancy, a mixture of body oils, butters and lotions depending on the stage of the pregnancy and time of day. One of the nicest products I tested was this super light but nourishing Miracle oil by the brand Love Boo. I know a lot of people are put off body oils if they take too long to absorb, so this one is sure to please for it’s light texture. I had no problem using this in the mornings before getting dressed, even when rushing out the door to do the school run.
The oil has a nice blend of plant oils, including sweet almond, passionflower and Argan as well as beautiful light fruity scent coming from Vanilla, lime, lemon and peppermint. The oil leaves the skin soft and nourished on application, perfect for chest, tummy and thighs or can be applied all over.
You can purchase the Love Boo Super strecthy miracle oil (£15.99 for 100 mls) from Naturisimo who offer free worldwide International shipping. Also check out their wonderful discovery boxes and other mum and baby brands!
