    anyone heard of grape seed oil to use on the skin whilst pregnant?

    OH ordered me some and I am afraid to use it as I don't know what it is and it also says on the bottle seek medical advice if pregnant

    Never heard of it hon. To seek medical advice whilst oregnant suggests it's not suitable for pregnant women though...

    It's a carrier oil so should be ok to use. It's mainly essential oils you need to avoid, as they can enter the bloodstream, which passes to LO xxx

    Charlene - I used this last time, and it was the only pregnancy that I didn't get stretch marks, (may have got them already the other three times mind, but none got worse, which they did with other subsquent pregnancys) I think it's brilliant

    I tried it as I got a free bottle at the right time, and its not greasy at all, lovely, still use it now, it's made for sensitive skin too, put it on tum at night, and in the morning, you can still feel the difference

    You can get it online or in boots shop
