Q: To prevent pregnancy stretch marks, when can I start using this product?

submitted by Madison - 1 year ago
  • A: Dear Madison, thank you for your question. It's best to use our Cocoa Butter Formula Massage Lotion for Stretch Marks before your skin begins to stretch. Hydrating your abdomen, when you first learn your pregnant, can only help prevent stretch marks in the coming months. Of course, it will still help your skin become more elastic and supple anytime you decide to care for the areas affected by weight gain, but will it will be the most effective if you start early.

Q: Does it make the stretch marks go away? Or does it just lighten the color and visibility?

I know that everyone’s skin is different, but from my personal experience with this I applied it liberally on my belly every night through my twin pregnancy and I only got some small stretch marks on my hips. I highly recommend this product and it was recommended by my sister who had success with it as well. Light scent and great moisturizing product—totally worth it.

This new formula is just awful… it doesn’t absorb into your skin. In fact, the lotion begins to ball up with any material or even just your hand gliding across your skin. I miss the old product, I didn’t care for the cocoa smell of the old product, but at least it fully absorbed and left my skin smooth and soft to the touch. My husband can’t even touch me because he said it feels likes rubbing dead skin off of me. This product is just awful. Why try to fix something that was never broken? And you have somehow made this product worse.. it is in no way an improvement and I am upset that I waisted money on this when I will be chucking it in the trash when i get home this evening. I tried giving it a shot for an entire week thinking maybe it was certain circumstances that caused the lotion to ball up.. maybe too much moisture? Maybe certain fabric I was wearing that rubbed it into balls? Wrong! And wrong again! i have tried it right after a shower.. tried it in the morning when my skin is completely dry.. tried it with a combination of another lotion that I love and leaves my skin smooth and I have come to the conclusion that it is indeed the lotion itself that is the issue. It balls up every single time I have used it no matter the different ways I apply it and leave it to dry and every time it leaves my skin feeling gross and dirty as if my skin is peeling. Absolutely hate it and my husband can’t even touch me because he is grossed out by the feeling of it on my skin as well. I have also noticed the change in the scent of the product. It smells like glue but odor isn’t terribly strong considering I used to hate the smell of the cocoa butter version so I won’t complain about that, although it’s not much of an improvement. Just very chemically and smells very much like a glue based product. I am very disappointed in your new formula. You need to fix this and find out what additive you have put in this new formula that causes it to ball up on the skin so terribly. Your going to be losing many loyal customers because of this result as nobody wants to feel dirty and gross after applying lotion.

Thank you for your feedback! We are sorry that you are not happy with the Massage Lotion for Stretch Marks. Pilling of lotion can occur for a few reasons and there are some easy fixes to prevent this from happening. 1) Exfoliate -sometimes pilling is the result of dead skin cell buildup so exfoliating can help smooth out texture. 2) Cut Back- when moisturizer balls up it can be a result of applying too much product. Try using a thinner application amount 3) Take your time- Pilling can occur when you layer products on too quickly, so if you are using with another product make sure to give it time to absorb before applying a layering formulation. We will pass your comments along to the appropriate team.

I used this lotion for most of my pregnancy and then decided to try bio oil. This lotion starts to peel once it is dry and I do not like that, bio oil is much better and what I would recommend using besides this product. Hopefully they’ll fix the formula, but when I put this lotion on and it peels off, I feel like it’s pointless.

I got a sample from Baby list and I loved it so I decided to buy the bottle. After using it I was so disappointed because it is sticky, doesn’t smell like the sample and it peels. The peeling part is what is the most annoying for me. I won’t be buying this again. And i don’t even know what to do with the new bottle because I only used it a few times.

I used this when I was pregnant with my first child (2017) and really liked it. That formula had a true cocoa scent (it was strong!) but I enjoyed it. This new formula (2022?) smells like liquid glue and is just not pleasing. Otherwise I do like the lotion, I’m personally just not a fan of their new scent.
