It was so fancy! Loved the box it came in and hand written note, felt like a little bit of luxury. Concept is good but common – I liked that they explained why they used scents and the benefits though, was a differentiator. Bottle design is OK but not very exciting but nice it is a glass bottle. Instructions simple, easy to understand and nice that they mentioned bonding in them and how long you could use the product postpartum. Easy to use and dispenses a good amount. This was very easy to use. Surprisingly quick to absorb considering it feel so oily when rubbing in. Loved rubbing this into my bump and no stretchmarks yet! I also used this on my thighs and no new stretch marks yet. I used on my bottom and breasts and really helped ease the pain of aching boobs while they are growing. No new stretch marks. Skin feels lovely after using it – tempted to use it on my arms and legs too! I love the fragrance. I used everyday before bed and sometimes in the morning too (only on my bump if using twice). I mainly used this on my tummy. I have always had a tendency to have dry skin in the winter and not had any at all where I have been using this product. Due to having a tendency for dry skin I always try and use more natural products but this desire is dramatically increased during pregnancy. A wonderful bit of indulgent luxury that can be used every day. Huge added benefit is it actually seems to work! On the more expensive side initially I thought maybe overpriced but I have been using it daily and there is still LOADs left on the bottle and it smells incredible. I love the smell. Really felt like I was being transported to a spa every evening when I applied it and gave me a moment of calm reflection each day while I rubbed it in. I would buy this. Smells gorgeous, works well and a little goes a long way. Easy way to encourage some self-care during pregnancy! I would recommend as really enjoyable to use and seems to be good at preventing stretch marks. Great smell, good value and works well. Easy to use and enjoyable to use. I can’t believe how much I like this product! I was slightly cynical of the price tag but it lasts for ages and smells incredible. With a full time job and a toddler to look after it is very easy to not think about the fact I am pregnant whereas this product has helped me take a few minutes out each day to think about the new baby and help bond with them while also feeling like I have been to a spa and helping to prevent stretch marks and keep my skin healthy. What a total winner! Charlotte East – Mum To Be

Great packaging and bottle size. There was enough of the product to use all over the body, not just on the stomach area and use throughout the pregnancy and also in the fourth trimester after giving birth. I have used Weleda products before for myself and also on my first child, so I knew that the brand was a quality product and I was keen to try oh other products especially as I suffer from eczema and have had no adverse effects from using Weleda products. I was impressed that the bottle was a dark green colour to prevent deteriorating by sunlight and also the preference of glass rather than plastic for environmental reasons. The bottle has a traditional feel with a contemporary twist and looks stylish in any room if on display. Clear instructions and ingredients list. Clear on where on the body you could use. I can’t remember if on the instructions it says when you can use the product from? Also if the product can be used after giving birth and the benefits of that. The pump dispenser is great much easier system which means that the product can be kept upright to avoid spillage and waste. Very easy to use and the thicker consistency of the oil compared to other stretch mark oils means that no product runs out of your hand so all the product can be used and massaged into areas of the body that you are wanting it to go. I suffer from very dry skin and eczema and found that the product was quite easily absorbed, but left the skin feeling silky smooth. Dry and itchy skin after showering was left feeling more elastic and flexible after using this product. I believe that it has prevented stretch marks. During my first pregnancy stretch marks had already formed on my stomach, however using this oil no further stretch marks have formed and previous stretch marks seem faded. No stretch marks have formed on my thighs, although they didn’t form during my first pregnancy either. No stretch marks have formed on my bottom or breasts, although they didn’t form during my first pregnancy either. This made my skin feel silky and less itchy. I loved the fragrance especially the lavender notes. I have used this oil along with hypnobirthing therapy. When listening to the positive affirmations or relaxation audios I have massaged the Weleda Stretch Mark oil into my body. The overall effect of the hypnobirthing is increased by the scent of the lavender and I will use the oil during labour along with the hypnobirthing to amplify the feeling of relaxation. I used this 3-4 times a week – especially used sometimes after showing and hand in hand with hypnobirthing. I used this mainly on the stomach area where I have had itchiness and dry skin. It did improve my skin condition and now less dry and itchy. It is very important to me when carrying my unborn child as well as suffering from dry skin and eczema to use natural products I have used Weleda products before for myself and also on my first child, so I knew that the brand was a quality product and I was keen to try oh other products especially as I suffer from eczema and have had no adverse effects from using Weleda products. Comparable to other stretch mark oils on the market. I enjoyed the consistency and easily absorption as well as the relaxing lavender scent. I would buy this as no adverse skin effects – added benefit of Lavender scent and help with hypnobirthing. I would recommend as feels like a luxury item and a treat in pregnancy. As mentioned above great bottle design, easily absorbed, no adverse effects with dry/eczema skin, lovely lavender scent and co-use with hypnobirthing and massage through labour.

It looked smart and smelt nice! Very herbal. I loved it. I like the fact it’s and oil and not greasy, the fact it’s natural. The bottle looks very smart. I think the glass bottle helps with that. Instructions easy to understand and follow. Really like the dispenser pump. Given its oil it would have been awkward if you had to squeeze the bottle or something so the pump made it extremely easy. Very easy to use, again the pump meant it was easy to dispense and the fact it’s and oil meant it went on smoothly. It did absorb into my skin. However it took a little while but if I’m honest I used quite a bit! I have used this on my tummy and so far so good. I already have old stretch marks from my previous children but I haven’t gained any new ones. I’ll continue using it is it seems to have worked. My legs have got a tad bigger due to being laid up with spd and again no new stretch marks so far. I’m impressed. I have used this on my bottom and breasts and no stretchmarks have formed as of yet. It left my skin feeling lovely. It has helped with any irritation I have had as my skin has been quite itchy and this oil is fab for calming it. Absolutely loved the fragrance. It’s herby kind of. I like it. I used this after most baths. I’d say 3-4 times a week. I mainly used this on my belly and the whole of my legs. This did improve my skin condition as I do not have any dry skin in sight. It is important to me products I use are natural.
I am pregnant and try my best to stay clear of any harmful chemicals. The fact it’s all natural ticks all of the boxes for me. It’s well worth the money! When I first saw the price of it I was a bit like oh here we go another overpriced product. But when I used it, it actually was impressive. There was no disappointment so I would pay that as it does what it is meant to and more. I love the fact it is natural and smells amazing and the bottle. I would buy this. It has helped wonders with my skin irritation, No stretch marks have formed whilst using it and it’s natural. I already have recommended. Because it is worth the money and it does what it says it does. My skin feels soft and supple. Not dry, no stretchmarks, It’s a smart product that smells and look and works great.
It’s been a pleasure! And I think I have found a lifelong product and it leaves my legs feeling great. So thank you for the chance to try it. Elizabeth Green – Mum To Be
