On my never ending quest to try and ensure that I don’t end up covered in stretch marks by the time Baby B makes an appearance, I've been trying a HUGE range of lotions, potions, balms and oils.
One of my top five products I can reveal to be Elemis’ Japanese Camellia Body Oil Blend.
Containing key ingredients of Camellia Kissi seed oil for its anti ageing and anti oxidant properties, soothing and nourishing sweet almond oil and Vitamin E, this delicious, light weight body oil is a real treat for my bump.
For many centuries camellia oil from Japan has been used for the care of nails, hair, scalp and combination skin, and when massaged into the skin, the light oil is easily absorbed and the rich, plant collagens within help to keep the skin moisturised and supple, thus helping to prevent stretch marks.
It has a very delicate and subtle fragrance, not at all over powering and it is captured within a really rather lovely looking glass bottle, as you can see!
|The oil is extremely light, not at all thick or 'oily'!|
Now, this may sound daft, but for an oil, it’s not at all oily. It is really light on your skin and is absorbed almost instantly, meaning you aren’t left feeling like you’re one giant oil slick, which is always a bonus!
Your hands are left feeling lovely and soft too after you've applied it!
