I thought the stretch mark fairy skipped over me when I had my first two babies. I was told that there are two things that prevent stretch marks during pregnancy- a good moisturizer and good genes. I thought I had it all figured out after baby #2, but as I slowly lost the baby weight I saw something small my baby girl left behind to always remind me of my pregnancy with her. The translucent, purplish line to the left of my navel was small enough to be considered minor but vibrant enough that you couldn’t miss it. Three years later I was pregnant with my son and I knew better than to test fate. I lathered on Palmer’s Cocoa Butter with Vitamin E, for two reasons: the ingredients are tried and true, and everyone who has tried Palmer’s Cocoa Butter formula recommends it.
Growing up I always knew the hidden power of Vitamin E. My grandmother and mother had amazing skin and their best-kept skin-secret was just plain old Vitamin E. I soon found out that cocoa butter was great at keeping skin supple and moisturized, and could aid in keeping stretch marks at bay during pregnancy. It’s no wonder so many moms in the baby message boards recommend Palmer’s to soothe and protect their skin.
The scent of Palmer’s is unmistakable. It smells the same today as it did years ago and reminds me of warm beach sand. You can count on Palmers to leave the parabens, mineral oil, and phthalates out of their products.
There are a variety of Palmer’s Cocoa Butter products to choose from based on your needs. I love the lighter massage lotion for all-over body moisturizing, but the Palmer’s Tummy Butter is a thicker formula, perfect for over-night belly moisturizing.
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter is easy to get your hands on. You can find it at your local drugstore, online, and even at your favorite baby store! To find out more, visit Palmer’s.
