    I've been used Palmers Cocoa Butter Body Oil for the last few weeks & I find it better then bio oil. It's £9 a bottle & comes in a spray oil. It's for scars, stretch marks, ageing skin, dry skin & it smells really nice. And not as greasy! I'll definitely be using it after lo is born - you can use it as a bath oil too x

    I used the Aloe Vera Cocoa butter cream as well as Nivea with Almond oil.

    Despite gaining a massive 3st + I never had a single stretch mark.

    I also used The Sanctuary Mum to be Cologen boosting bump butter (but I mainly used what ever was on special of the other two!)
