“I got this product from a friend and I’ll tell you how it ranks with the 2 other stretch mark products that I use. One is the very expensive Clarins Stretch Mark Control lotion (which was not worth the price at all), and my favorite the Mama Mio Tummy Rub Oil. Let me first describe what you’ll experience when applying the Bella B product: imagine slathering Vaseline all over your belly, except the Vaseline feels like it has something weird and gritty/grainy in it. And it does not absorb well, even after hours later it still feels like you slathered Vaseline all over your belly. The plus side is if you get super dry in the winter, you can alternate this with other products to boost moisturization. The scent is not bad, either. I actually found that I liked to use it when I wore a pair of maternity jeans with a full belly panel that always slid down, but would not slide down if I had this stuff on my belly! (Yes it is sticky like that.) My favorite is the Mama Mio Tummy Rub oil. For being an oil, it absorbs remarkably well, smells divine, and is very easy and quick to apply. I use it the most of any of the others and I have not gotten any stretch marks, knock-on-wood, as I’m in my 37th week of pregnancy. The Clarins one felt like a normal lotion (no different for its $50 price tag), did not have a scent, and would not stop me from getting itchy like the other two. To sum up: don’t buy this product unless you have super dry skin, wear a lot of full belly panel pants, and don’t mind applying something that is the consistancy of Vaseline to a large area on your body. I would definately recommend going with the Mamma Mio Tummy Rub Oil instead.”
Mama Mio The Tummy Rub Oil
If you are buying this to prevent stretch marks, please know that NO PRODUCT can do this. So be skeptical of anything that guarantees prevention. After speaking with my dermatologist and midwife, I’ve come to understand that stretch marks are hereditary – you’ll either get them or you won’t. That said – although I did get stretch marks even after using this religiously since week 16 of pregnancy, this is the only moisturizer that actually helps with the sometimes severe itching that can happen. If I stop using it for even one day – the itching comes right back! Since marks can happen, the least you can do is take care of your skin, keep it hydrated and keep it from itching. I figure it will be more likely to “bounce back” if I’ve taken care of it this whole time. The smell is amazing! I love using it, and my husband loves the way it smells too. It’s the little things to make you feel better in pregnancy ladies! All natural oils and ingredients – just check out the ingredient list – no nasties or weird chemicals, which makes me feel better about using this over a significantly large amount of skin every day. Absorption is exceptional! This will not leave you greasy. Yes, there will be a little shine once you are done, but nothing that will rub off or stain your clothes.

Mama Mio The Tummy Rub Butter
“I love this stuff! I’m 6 months pregnant and everyone told me that I was going to get stretch marks because my mom got stretch marks and its hereditary. I bought this lotion and its been working perfectly. I put it all over boobs, stomach, and thighs. No signs of stretch marks. It also relieves any itchiness from your skin stretching. Love it! The only issue is that I use it up quickly and it’s pricey in a small container. But so worth it.”

Body Boost Stretch Mark Butter
“I bought the lavender vanilla body butter when I was pregnant with my son. I used it every day after I got out of the shower. Rubbed it all over my belly, chest, hips, theighs, booty! Everywhere!!! And in the nine months that I lugged him around, I never got a single stretch mark. I continued to use it on my chest while I was breastfeeding. Because I was worried about getting stretch marks since sometimes “the girls” tend to get bigger. He is four months old and to this day I don’t have a single stretch mark!”
