Victoria Beckham took to Twitter to tell the world that this nourishing oil was her go-to pregnancy product. “Pregnancy tip!!!! I have used this through every pregnancy, it’s amazing!! X VB” Thanks Vic, if it will make us look anything like you after four kids, we’ll take ten!
“After a horrible puberty growth spurt I got terrible raised stretch marks on my boobs and hips. After 6 months of daily bio oil, there are no marks on my boobs and the ones on my hips are barely visible. Also used and loved by my sister during pregnancy!” - emlovescoffee
“Dryness is quite common in pregnant women. This is often related to over- washing or cleansing the skin or hormonal changes during the pregnancy. To try and prevent dryness, women should take quick, cool showers and use a general moisturiser after the shower.” - Dr Claude Saliou, Research Director, Johnson & Johnson
“Ever since using this shaving gel on my legs and underarms I have not experienced any rash and my ingrowns have minimised. The cream is rich and creamy but does not lather which doesn't concern me at all. My razor slides easily over my skin and I find my skin is left feeling very soft and comfortable after shaving.” - Roxymisha
“Every time I want to pamper myself or have sore feet, I love massaging this into my feet. I love the scent and also the cool menthol sensation, I could feel it especially in between my fingers while I applied it.” – Marshmello brain
Mums with new bubs need products that will assist in cutting down their grooming time.
