Mama Bee Nourishing Body Oil
Gentle, great for stretch marks, sooths itchy skin
I started using this when I first found out I was expecting. Since this is our first baby, I didn't know what to expect from pregnancy...I had horrible nausea and couldn't stand the scent of the flowery lotions I had been using. This fresh lemony smell was most pleasing to my sensitive nose!
My skin has been super dry lately, even though I've never had a problem with dry skin before pregnancy. My skin soaks up this oil really fast. I was worried about using an oil because I have sensative skin that is prone to break outs. However, I have been using this on my entire body for 5 months now and no breakouts--not even on my back or shoulders! I put it on right out of the shower (sometimes I add it in my bath water too!) and it soaks in before I dress. I can put it on just-shaved legs and it doesn't burn a bit. It is medium weight oil, not too heavy and gloopy but not so light that you can't feel it...it is the perfect weight to wear every day.
It leaves your skin so velvety soft! I would recommend this to everyone--I'm so in love with it! Also, I haven't had a single stretch mark pop up. My ob said vitamin E is great for healing stretch marks, and I have noticed that the marks in my hips (from high school!) are even fading, so I am thrilled about this product! I hope BB never stops making it!

I've read the reviews before I bought this, and I don't think that the smell is too strong or like cleaner like someone else said. I love the lemony smell, kind of like the candy lemonheads. I use this on top of the mama balm and it works great. You do have to wait a little while before putting on your clothes. Also, a little goes a long way. Don't put on too much if you want it to soak in quickly.

I really was gobsmacked at the amount of therapeutic moisturizing this product proved. I am 24 weeks pregnant, and this alleviates that horrible itchy dryness, and smells great, also, it doesn't stay greasy and mess your clothes. And touch wood, no stretchmarks yet :) - anything for varicose veins yet?

The oil goes on smooth, but it seems like I am applying lemon pledge to my skin! it's a little too strong for me. I loved the apricot baby oil, which I cannot find in stores anymore. I am going to try the new Baby Nourishing Oil, since it says there is still the apricot scent to it. Fragrance is very important to me and If I don't care for the scent I won't use it.
