Stretch marks, the bane of the lives of many mums and mums-to-be the world over! Largely down to the genetic makeup of your skin it can be nigh on impossible to prevent them – Mostly Mum tried (and failed miserably!) to do just that… three times over in fact.
But there is a highly acclaimed superstar product to diminish their appearance that Mostly Mum swears by…
As (according to Today.com) does the lovely Kim Kardashian…
Thanks to this product it’s buh-bye stretch marks for Kim! 💖
Oh and Kate, mum to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and baby Prince Louis (I wonder if she’ll affectionately call him Lulu, like Mostly Mum does her Baby C… Hmm…🤔), also uses it…

Kate’s royal tummy will soon be smooth and taut again thanks to…
Bio-Oil, of course!
Bio-Oil – the No.1 product for treating stretch marks costs as little as £8.99 for 60ml from Superdrug.com! 🤑
Bio-Oil is, according to their website (Bio-oil.com), ‘the world’s leading scar and stretch mark product’ and is ranked No. 1 in 24 countries including Ireland, the UK, Australia and Canada.
It has also won a jaw-dropping number of skincare awards (349 to be precise!) and considering the effect this miracle oil has had on my stretch mark ravaged tum I am not at all surprised.
Containing a heady mix of divinely scented calendula, lavender, rosemary and chamomile oils, vitamins A &E, this non-greasy formula smoothed out and gave a generally more taut appearance to my mum tum after only a few weeks of regular use.
Not only that, but it also dramatically reduced the appearance of a deep scar on my younger daughter’s forehead (we don’t call her Little Miss Bump for nothing!) within as little as a week of twice daily use.
I honestly cannot recommend this product highly enough!
My only reservation would have to be the packaging which was recently changed from this:
Let’s face it, not a great look, guys! 😞
An even worse look! 😖
At least they refrained from messing with the tried and tested formula…
Thank goodness for small mercies! 😉
It does look a great deal better once out of the box though…
Phew! Just about display worthy! 👏🏻😊
Other notable mentions include:
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Massage Lotion for Stretch Marks
The rich creamy formula and warm cocoa butter scent make for a nice pregnancy treat! Oh and the £3.99 price tag from Superdrug.com isn’t half bad either. ☺️
Or you could try…
Sanctuary Spa Covent Garden Mum To Be Stretch Mark Oil
Another highly rated product containing tamanu, borage and organic rosehip seed oils that is also well worth a mention (currently on offer at £6.85 from Sanctuary.com). A true treat! 😍
But for Mostly Mum, if you are plagued by a post pregnancy tum with more ridges than an ocean bed, Bio-Oil is the only one!
Have you had any success with Bio-Oil? As ever, I’d love to hear your stories in the comments section below.
Until next time…
