Product Review: Burt's Bees Mama Bee Belly Butter

Thursday, October 24, 2013

Hey all! So I started using this stretch mark cream from Burt's Bees a couple weeks ago, and I really like it! I'm going to have to do another update on this product towards the end of my pregnancy or maybe after baby arrives to attest to the effectiveness of the cream, but here are my preliminary thoughts.

What I really like about this product is its low toxicity ratings on Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep database. There are other products that are even less toxic, but they were just too expensive for me! I found this on Amazon for $10 (although the price does seem to fluctuate depending on the vendor). 

I like that Mama Bee is fragrance free. Its natural smell reminds me of bee's wax, which I really love. Its very thick and almost feels like butter, so it makes me feel like its a real heavy duty moisturizer. I love laying on the couch and just connecting with my little one by rubbing my belly!

The only downside is that since it is such a thick moisturizer, it feels slightly sticky to the touch for a few hours after application. It doesn't bother me, but my husband doesn't love it if I put it on right before bed, so I started putting it on in the morning. If you're wearing a silk shirt, I would probably wear an undershirt just in case. 

Have you tried Mama Bee or any other stretch mark cream and had good results? I've read stretch marks are mostly genetic, but can this help at all? Any other suggestions on avoiding stretch marks? Or do you just think its the mark of a mama?!

Next week I'm going to update you on my organic prenatal vitamins. I've also got a few projects up my sleeve that aren't quite ready yet. Stay tuned! :)

  1. I just can't say enough how much I love that we are going through the same thing! I use Palmers Cocoa Butter only because the hubs read all the reviews and this one was rated pretty high. Don't even know if it works, but I guess we'll find out. I think it is genetic, too. I will have to consider yours when this runs out. I completely know what you mean regarding it sticking to everyone for like ever. It's very buttery =)

    1. So sticky, right?! Must mean it's heavy duty ;)
