Scent - love the smell of all 3 products
Texture - so far my favourite is the Tummy Butter. It makes my skin feel totally moisturised all day long, but not greasy (you need to let it absorb a bit before dressing!). The massage lotion is very similar to the normal Cocoa butter body cream - seems the same texture exactly. Massage lotion easier to smooth on.
Look - nice packaging on the massage cream & tummy butter.
Scent- lovely smelling and not overpowering. Coconut reminds me of holiday!
Look- the look of the product i feel is perfect. Nice thick packaging not flimsy.
Texture- the texture is great. It is not too thick or sticky which I have found with a lot of products. It isn’t too thin that you need to put a lot on. So far so good!
(For some reason I cannot upload a picture, I will keep trying)
Look: packaging very nice simple and sturdy.
Texture: lovely texture esp the body butter and lotion. Only find that putting on at night time before bed can make me quite hot and sweaty.
Scent: Amazing esp on the days not feeling 100% the smell isnt overpowering or have a different smell whilst on.
This is my second pregnancy and I did not experience any stretch marks with baby number 1 and I’ve always been a fan of palmers. One week on using Palmers: smells amazing, I have really dry and sensitive skin, but my skin now feels exceptionally moist.
Look- love the concept and its pacakaged well.
Sent- fresh and I feel sun kissed
Texture- non greasy, easy to apply and works pretty well with my skin type.
I started the product testing at 20+2 weeks.
I love all the packaging, especially on the massage lotion with the pump dispenser. The tummy butter looks so much more expensive than it is retailed at. You can see from all of the packages that they are clearly pregnancy products too.
The scent of all of them is coconut (my favourite) but not too overpowering, especially for my sensitive pregnancy sense of smell at the moment.
The texture of the massage lotions are lovely and smooth, soak in quickly and leave my bump feeling lovely and moisturised. The tummy butter is a very thick butter, which feels amazing, but is harder to spread across my tummy. Once it’s on though you can feel it last for a long time, even after a shower my tummy felt lovely and moisturised.
Thoroughly enjoying pampering my ever growing bump with these gorgeous products.
Picture today at 21 weeks+2
look - the products look smart and much more expensive than they are. I like that they are marketed specifically for stretch marks
texture - love the creams, they feel so smooth on my skin! I love that they sink into my skin quickly as well. I’m not keen on the body butter, I find it quite sticky, hard to get out of the pot and hard to rub in, however it does feel like it’s deeply moisturising me which is the whole point so I don’t mind!
Scent - love the summery coconut smell, it’s not overpowering which is so important bearing in mind they are aimed at pregnant ladies 😊
When I started using the products I was 23 + 3 weeks and I have been using the products for 1 week now twice a day.
Look - the packaging is lovely and really clear it is suitable for pregnant women. The benefits of the product is clearly detailed and I really like the pump on the lotion.
Texture - I am not keen on the butter, it is hard to get out of the tub and flakey texture which is hard to rub in. I really like how easy the cream and lotion are to rub in.
Scent - lovely smell and not too over powering. It doesn’t seem to smell for too long once it has absorbed into the skin.
I’m quite active so no obvious stretch marks. However, some comments bellow:
Scent - love the smell of all 3, really long lasting and fabulous flagrance which lasts all day and beyond
Texture-my favourite is the message lotion although all 3 are a bit greasy for my liking but in the same time makes your skin feeling super hydrated indicating that it might actually really work in improving elasticity. Tummy butter quite difficult to apply but once you get the grip with it, works wonders. Due to the greasy texture they don’t absorb very quickly so make sure you get dried up before wearing anything, or apply mainly at night before going to bed so it allows time to work overnight.
Look - nice packaging with the tummy butter looking the most luxurious of the 3. It does however runs out very quickly so maybe the other two products will last you longer
Look - I like the look of the products they look more expensive and I like that it is easy to see they are for stretch marks.
Texture - I prefer the massage lotion although the massage cream has a very similar texture - both rub in well. I found the tummy butter difficult to use as it is solid and does not melt easily although it seems to get better after you get through the top layer. It does not rub in well it looks very flaky and takes a long time to stop being greasy.
Smell - I love the smell of the products, they are not too overpowering and last a while.
I love the smell of the products and the effect of them lasts a long time.
I had been getting an itchy belly due to skin stretching but that has stopped since regularly using these!
