Burt's Bees Mama Bee Belly Butter Review

As you know from my previous posts I am expecting my third baby, due in a few months. Being pregnant is such an amazing time, but it's not always the most comfortable experience.

As your baby grows and your stomach and skin stretch (tmi?), it can become very uncomfortable and it gets very itchy. You can also get stretch marks. I honestly don't care if I get stretch marks or not. My main concern is dealing with the itchiness. 

I picked up the Mama Bee Belly Butter to try and combat the itchiness while on a recent trip at Target for around $13.

It's a thick cream created to apply all over your stomach to help soothe your skin. 

It's fragrance free, paraben free, phthalate free, and contains no petrochemicals. 

It contains shea, cocoa, and jajoba butters, as well as vitamin e.

First off I love that this is fragrance free. I am not a fan of that strong straight cocoa butter scent but I don't smell that or any other ingredients from this belly butter. That's a plus in my book, because some scents can make you feel nauseous during pregnancy! Currently can't stand the smell of coffee! 

When applying it quickly absorbs into the skin and doesn't leave a greasy feeling. 

I can definitely feel a relief from itching after using this belly butter! I can't really say if it will help prevent stretch marks since I'm only 26 weeks along but it did relieve my itchy skin. If you're currently pregnant and suffering from intense stomach itch definitely give this a try! It's a must have!

You can find this at your local Target or drugstore for around $14.
