My Take on the Product: 

Since our bodies stretch a lot to accommodate the coming baby, our skin needs nourishment and care, so that our the elasticity of our skin remains intact and that our skin does not leave intense stretch marks! The MamaEarth Essential Body Oil is a great product to begin using in your pregnancy to allow your skin to stretch all it wants, and yet minimize stretch marks. I am done with my pregnancies, and had very few stretch marks, as I used to use coco butter on my pregnant tummy. I received this product about 2 weeks ago, and believe you me! The little stretch marks that were left on my tummy, are now visibly reduced, and only very faint lines remain. So this is essential, not only during pregnancy, you can use this oil post pregnancy, or also on a regular basis.

The MamaEarth Essential Body oil comes in a 100 ml pump plastic bottle. A single pump dispenses enough product that can suffice for the whole abdomen. It smells amazing! I love that mild rose hip fragrance that this brown oil leaves behind! The oil absorbs well into the skin and does not feel sticky! The skin instantly feels fresh and nourished! I love, love love that this oil leaves your skin hydrated for the day, the only time I needed reapplication is was post shower. Otherwise I feel that you need to re-apply only the next day!

Being a blend of so many oils, and essential oils, I love the fact that it is not sticky, so this is a must have irrespective of being pregnant or not. I love using it on my abdomen and thighs.

Mommy Likes:

  1. Love the travel friendly packaging!
  2. In love with the fragrance!
  3. non-sticky
  4. easily absorbs into the skin
  5. with regular use of 2 weeks, noticeable difference in the lightening of stretch marks
  6. Free of SLS, Parabens, Phthalates or artificial fragrance

  1. I wish i knew about it earlier, though not sure how effective it could be as I got bad stretch marks even after applying different solutions

  2. I have a lot of stretch marks on my waist and thighs due to weight fluctuations! I will surely try this and I hope this would work for me 😍
