While pregnant with my fourth child I decided at 18 weeks to start massaging stretch mark cream onto my tummy and thighs (as I have done for all my pregnancies) to prevent stretch marks and dry itchy skin. You can read my experience with the first cream that I used, the Clicks Stretch Mark Cream, in my post here Clicks Stretch Mark Cream. It was definitely not a good experience and I would not recommend the stretch mark cream made by Clicks.
I then tried Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Massage Lotion for stretch marks in a pump bottle. Wow and wow! What a huge difference!
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Massage Lotion for stretch marks contains:
- Cocoa Butter
- Shea Butter
- Argan Oil
- Almond Oil
- Bio C-Elaste (Collagen, Elastin and Centella Asiatica)
- Vitamin E
- And is paraben, phthalate and dye free.
My skin started to feel smooth, nourished and strong again, after the terrible experience with the Clicks cream. The itchiness and dry peeling went away, and my skin felt so incredibly moisturised. I could not believe the contrast!
I would highly recommend the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Massage Lotion – without a doubt.
Due to rubbing this massage lotion into my skin every day during my four pregnancies, I do not have a single stretch mark!
The only negative is that the pump bottle is made from fairly hard plastic and therefore it is quite difficult to get the last of the cream out of the bottle. I end up cutting the bottle in half, with sharp kitchen scissors, so that I can scrape the rest of the cream out.
