Belly butter


After having my son four years ago, I have found it hard to get rid of the stretch marks and loose skin on my belly from being pregnant so I decided to try Burt's Bees Mama Bee belly butter because I have had good experiences with some of Burt's Bees other products. I really like the scent of this product, it has a pleasant scent that is not very strong which is good for new mothers because most of the time your new baby will be very close to your belly even after giving birth! My son has always had bad allergies since birth and this scent doesn't set off his allergies when I use it. I also like how this product is all natural and doesn't contain a lot of harsh chemicals since new mothers have so much contact with their newborns, you wouldn't want to use anything on yourself that you would not use on your baby so the all natural element of this product is great. Although this belly butter is great for moisturizing my skin and has so many qualities that I do like I wish it had worked in regard in reducing the look of my stretch marks. This cream did not fade or better my stretch marks at all. I definitely would just market this cream as a general moisturizer for new mothers.



Mama Bee Belly Butter helped my belly grow beautifully


Burt's Bees Mama Bee Belly Butter was the first moisturizer I used on my growing baby belly. I started using it when I was about 10 weeks along and my belly was just starting to expand. I was really worried about getting stretch marks because my mom had them and I still have them on my thighs from when I went through my growth spurt as a child many years ago. (I'm older than the average first-time mom.) I really wanted to prevent stretch marks or at least minimize them, so I planned on making a pretty substantial investment in stretch mark prevention products. However, I wanted to wait until I was more into the "safety zone" of pregnancy and my belly was really growing before I spent a lot of money, plus I wanted to make sure I was going to have the discipline to actually apply something to my belly at least once a day before I made a big financial commitment. The Mama Bee Belly Butter was relatively inexpensive and easy to find at a local discount department store. It is a little thick and greasy, but so is any type of body butter. I liked the texture of the Burt's Bees Belly Butter a lot better than a much more expensive one I tried later on. After I coated my belly (being sure to get the sides) and my breasts, I would rub the excess onto my elbows to help soften them up and get it off my hands. I wore over the belly underwear throughout my pregnancy so I never had any problems with it getting on my clothes. I have sensitive skin, but the Burt's Bees did not irritate my skin at all, though I've never had a bad reaction to any Burt's Bees product. The Belly Butter eased the itchiness I was just starting to experience, which was important because I was determined not to scratch my belly for fear it would increase the likelihood of stretch marks. I applied the Belly Butter every morning and every night for about three weeks before I began ordering more expensive, highly regarded stretch mark prevention creams and oils, and eventually started using mostly the more expensive products. I always kept some of the Burt's Bees on hand though since I had to order all of the other products online so that I always had something to use. I am happy to report that I didn't get a single stretch mark on my belly or breasts. (I did get just a few tiny ones around my knees because I didn't think to apply anything there at first and I had extreme swelling in my lower legs in my third trimester.) Because I used so many different products, I will never know for sure if the Burt's Bees Mama Bee Belly Butter made a difference, but I know it didn't hurt and probably helped. For women who can't afford or aren't willing to spend a small fortune on stretch mark prevention products, but still want to prevent or minimize stretch marks, I think Burt's Bees Mama Bee Belly Butter is a great product.

Gummy, Tacky, Gooey... But Effective.


When I ran out of my wonderful **Palmer's Stretch Mark Massage Lotion**, my husband picked up some **Burt's Bee's Mama Bee Belly Butter**.  He was so excited to find something for me, and I was thrilled that he was into helping me find some products for my skin during my pregnancy. I couldn't wait to give it a try. Unfortunately, this product wasn't exactly what we thought it would be. The **Burt's Bee's Mama Bee Belly Butter **comes in a wide, plastic jar. Rather than squeezing it like a lotion onto your hands and applying it to your belly, you have to dip your fingers into the jar.  The butter is thick and cold, not to mention tacky and gummy.  It takes a long time to rub in, too.  Regardless of all of the flaws that I have found, this product does work. I just like my lotion a lot better.
