I have to be honest and say that I don’t like oily things on my body. I’m just not a fan of feeling greasy. This rule applies to suntan oils, massage oils and baby belly oils (hey, I’m not prejudice!). So, when Earth Mama Angel Baby asked me to try it out I wasn’t too excited. After all, I would have to rub something with the word “oil” in the title onto my skin.
When I opened the bottle and took a sniff (with my super-sensitive pregnant nose) I was happy to find that the scent was super mild, almost nonexistent. This was a big positive for me.
I used two pumps of the oil in the palm of my hand and then applied to my 24-week-pregnant belly. I was pleasantly surprised that the oil was not too watery so it didn’t run everywhere. I actually used two more pumps of the oil to make sure I got enough on the sides of my stomach towards my back.
Now, the big test for me was how greasy it felt after application and how long it stayed greasy. It left a very thin layer of oil on the top of my skin. I asked my hubby to feel to make sure I wasn’t being overly sensitive but he could feel it, too. I went ahead and put on my pajamas and climbed into bed. About 30 minutes later the oil had completely absorbed into my skin. Not too bad for an oil product!
Actually, I have continued to use Earth Mama Angel Baby Belly Oil in the evenings and, so far, no stretch marks! I would recommend this product to my pregnant friends, especially if they don’t have an aversion to oil like I do.
In addition, I plan to bring this oil with me to the hospital so that my nurse and/or husband can use it during labor for a perineal massage. I really don’t want to have another episiotomy!
