You know when you’re heavily pregnant and most (honestly: all) things are more annoying and much harder work than they once were? Well this product just gives you another irritant. It was recommended to me and slightly more expensive than the lotion (which I found a bit wasteful as the pump - as with a lot of products with a pump - got clogged and stopped working after a time), but I thought 3rd trimester, gotta pull out all the stops! Now the scent is sickly and chocolatey, but I was willing to overlook this in favour of stretch mark free skin. The consistency is really hard, more like a wax. You’re supposed to warm it in your hands, which means your hands get plenty of the stuff, and your bits loose out. Yet once you apply it to your bump and boobs it clogs into little pellets that won’t disintegrate, so rather than stand naked for hours massaging your own bits you end up just walking round with chunks of waxy, chocolatey stuff in your bra and elsewhere! On the plus side I don’t have any stretch marks but I really doubt these products anyway as all they're doing is softening the skin, how can that stop the layers below from getting damaged??!

I do not normally have sensitive skin and I've actually never had any kind of body cream create a break out on my skin before. Until I tried this. I used it for two days and actually really liked the smell of it and the way it made my skin feel but after using 4 times over two days I broke out in a super itchy heat type rash. I stopped using it immediately but the rash persisted for over a month. I actually had to get a topical steroid cream to finally get the rash to go away. I will not repurchase and I refuse to give it to anyone in case they get the same painful rash. Going straight in the garbage!

Love this product :) I have been using it since I was around 4 months pregnant, I now have 6 weeks until my due date and don't have a single stretch mark. It definitely helps to alleviate itching, and it smells good too. My husband slathers this all over my belly and hips before bed every night (he calls it "buttering the Christmas turkey!) - and that seems to be enough for me. I might just be lucky and have good genes, but I think this product has helped prevent stretch marks too. Would definitely buy it again.

This gave me a rash similar to a heat rash. The smell is wonderful. I'll use the jar up on my feet and hands but that is all. Will not repurchase.

When I first tried this product, I had no reactions. The scent was lovely and I was impressed. Less than a week of using this, I started to feel really itchy on my belly bump and looked to find a rash had developed. I do have sensitive skin but I have been able to use scented products. I highly would not recommend this product and will be going back to using the Palmer's stretch mark therapy oil. It does a whole lot better job at moisturizing, stretch marks and preventing an itchy belly.

I picked this up during my pregnancy. Used it after showering, went toned, and woke up with a red, bumpy, itchy rash everywhere I had applied it. Tossed it. Beware!

I have been using this since about 6 weeks and now I am at 30 weeks. I am just starting to get some marks around my belly button and they are barly visible. My husband could barley see them. I think it helped with making sure my skin isnt dry and even making sure my marks were not that bad or that dark.The butter is pretty thick and I need to use my nail to get it out of the jar. I mix my tummy butter with Vaseline Cocoa Butter body Gel. It goes on really smooth and easy and makes it absorb a lot faster.I do believe that stretch marks have a lot to do with genetics and how quickly you gain weight. All my weight is in my belly so I am glad I was able to slow it down.Will update after birth for final thoughts

Firstly, I do think that whether you get stretch marks or not depends on genetics. Some people do nothing, and they still don't get stretch marsk; others are obsessed with different butter/oil/creams and they still get stretch marks. So I think applying different creams and body butter will help moisturize your skin and hence making it less dry, which will result in less chances of itchy skin more prone to getting stretch marks. My friend got this for me after I finished Weleda Pregnancy Oil. It was winter and my skin was really really dry (especially in tummy area). This really did moisturize my skin, but it took hours and hours for it to sink in. My skin felt so greasy!! I usually apply it at night, so my nightgown will be soaked in this, I'd have to change nightgown every day, since it felt greasy. I'd rather go back to using Weleda Pregnancy Oil. Also, I am 36 weeks pregnant now and so far I've got no stretch marks. But I wouldn't really say it was for this cream, rather a combination of genetics and different oil/creams I used.

I don't have particularly sensitive skin but this cream gave me bad rashes. I bought this for my pregnancy stretch marks on my belly. Now I have red blotchy rashes and it's itchy like crazy. Arrrgghhh. I've never had reaction to any body lotion/cream before this.

I started to buy this Tummy Butter when I was about 3 months pregnant (Oct-ish of 2009). I used it EVERY day up to when I gave birth (and the accompanying stretch mark lotion from Palmers). I think I went through 5 tubs of it, and I still got stretch marks.. They didn't start to show up until I was around 7.5 months along, but then all of a sudden BAM, they were everywhere. I've always been skinny, and my skin just hit it's breaking point. (In the rear view mirror, I should have started using Bio Oil around 5 or 6 months along. The result would have been a lot better) I can honestly say that this Tummy Butter did help to prevent some stretch marks, as in it could have been a lot worse. I only got them under my belly button, and a little on my hips. I have very fair skin, and most women that have a fair complexion tend to get more/darker stretch marks. It also prevented all of the itching that goes along with the growing stomach. The problems I had with this product was the thickness of the Butter, the length of time it took to soak into my skin and the smell. It was such a process to rub this stuff all over my belly. It would take about 5-10 mins to rub in and then at least 10 to soak in. I ended up getting the Stretch Mark Lotion from Palmers for random times throughout the day when I would start to feel an itch, or was just too lazy to use this Butter. It soaked in A LOT faster, but the moisturized feeling didn't last as long.
