Mama Bee Nourishing Body Oil
I started using this product while pregnant with my second child due in January. Not only was it soothing on my stretching skin, the citrus smell that lingered on my skin was a constant reminder that there was a sun out there and eventually would have to brighten these cold dark winter days. I will no longer go through a winter in Northern Michigan without at least one bottle of this.

Average body oil
Didn't moisturize for as long as i wanted after applying at night time; had to use lotion in the am On lower legs which are very dry. after a while the lemon smell is overwhelming. I added grapeseed oil to increase penetration and almond oil to decrease odor. But I think for many people this is still a satisfactory product.

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!
