Mama Mio Stretch Mark Butter Review

Friday, December 30, 2011

You can probably tell by the first picture that Mama Mio products are quite different to your standard pregnancy stretch mark creams! I was drawn to it straight away due to the cool packaging and the way it's advertised at my sort of age group... I'm a real sucker for pretty packaging! But most of all, I was drawn to the fact that it claims to help you to not get stretch marks during pregnancy. Their website explains that during pregnancy your belly will stretch to over 30 inches, and then suddenly pings back (well, heres hoping!) and that's pretty tough on your skin!

The Tummy Rub Stretch Mark Butter, which I purchased for around £23, contains high levels of Omega  3, 6 and 9, essential for increasing the skins elasticity as it stretches and then shrinks back again after. Therefore, they recommend you use it for up to 4 months after the baby has been born. I have been using this product for about 3 months now, and I have to say it is so lovely to use! It's really creamy and moisturising. It really doesn't feel like a pregnancy cream, more like one of those posh body butters they sell in the body shop!

As for stretch marks, I can't absolutely say that it has been this cream that has stopped me from getting any, but the fact is, I don't have any... (yet!). I have read a few reviews from women saying how they have also not had any, or theirs have disappeared after using the cream and they seem genuine. But as I have been told countless times by my midwife, some women do get lucky and get no stretch marks, other women do get them.

However, the products all look so amazing, and it's so hard to find something that's trendy and young and aimed at women who like pretty looking products to pamper themselves with! So I would recommend these to all yummy mummys-to-be!
