The warning you get earlier on when it comes to being pregnant is BEWARE OF THE STRETCH MARKS KLSDFJLSJFLSJLFDKSLKA.
So the moment I found out I was pregnant I started shopping around for the goods.
Now, I am not the type to apply lotion religiously like some women who does it consistently after showers. Kudos to you guys who are that consistent. I just can't be bothered. Ask all my 90% body lotions at home that I barely touched yet bought because of peer pressure from people with baby soft skin,
So I started off slow by buying the spray version first:
I loved this! But it does finishes up quite quickly since I tend to overspray myself a bit. LOL. It is such a time saving item as well; just spray it on, rub it in, tadaaaa! Less hassle, fast, smells awesome, yeah.
After that ran out, I purchased the Palmer's Tummy Butter next:
My friends were all into the creams and lotions, but I have never heard them mention the butter, so I got intrigued. The tummy butter has a balm consistency, so you really have to dig into the product if you are impatient in the mornings (like me). But it is super moisturising and I end up smelling like cocoa the whole day, so win.
However, I was starting to get impatient with the butter so I purchased the stretch marks lotion next:
The lotion is definitely a close tie with the spray. It absorbs into the skin really well (faster than the spray by the way) hence it is faster than the butter which needs a little bit more massaging into the skin.
Oh can you tell I like smelling like cocoa butter? Helps me curb my cravings for chocolate a bit. DO NOT LICK THE LOTION OMG WTH.
So the pattern that I am doing now is: lotion in the morning, tummy butter in the evening. However friends have warned me earlier on that if your mother used to have stretch marks, then there is a high chance you will end up with stretch marks as well. So, pfft.
Fingers crossed ay?
P/S: I heard they also have a range for baby products, but I can;t seemt o find them anywhere in my local Watsons and Guardians. Would love to have a chocolate smelling baby. XD But then again, I might end up biting the baby or nibbling the nose or something...
