If you are a first time mom, then it’s obvious that you will be having a lot of questions in mind. The most obvious question out of them is, “how to deal with stretch marks?”.Stretch marks are very common in pregnancy. The fact is that we cannot stop stretch marks, only control them up to an extent. Today I am reviewing a product which I have been using in last trimester of my pregnancy. It is Aaranyaa Argan Body Massage Oil with Anti-Stretch Mark Formula.
Price: Rs 595
Wt: 225 ml
Skin Types: All
Directions for use: Use rhythmic movements consistently using the palm of your hand or a flattened fist, apply pressure gently to the spine, working your way up the back of the neck.
My opinion about the product: Consider yourself lucky, if you never got any stretch marks during pregnancy. It becomes very difficult for me to believe, if anyone mentions that she never got any stretch marks during her pregnancy.
In the initial months of my pregnancy i.e from 3 months to 6 months, I regularly used Shea butter to keep my skin moisturized & hydrated. Till beginning of 7 month, not a single stretch mark was visible on my tummy and nobody was able to make out even if I was pregnant. But after that, I noticed few stretch marks and then decided to try some more effective product for my stretch marks.
Thus from the beginning of third trimester, I started using Aaranyaa Argan Body Massage Oil with Anti-Stretch Mark Formula. This oil is transparent and very runny in nature. Due to it’s thin consistency, it looks like water more than oil. As I mentioned earlier products of Aaranyaa have very decent and amazing fragrance. I absolutely love the way this oil smells.
I used it thrice in a day, so as to keep my skin completely hydrated. I also used it for managing pain in my hands &legs. This oily is completely non-sticky in nature so you need not worry about the staining of clothes post application. If you are thinking that it is bit expensive, then let me tell you that this single bottle is used by me from last three months of pregnancy. Application of this oil just requires just the very slightest amount that quickly gets absorbed in skin.
With completion of my pregnancy period, I got only few stretch marks, so I found it effective. I had read somewhere that appearance and quantity of stretch marks depends upon genes and heredity. So can’t say anything with 100% assurity that my less stretch marks are due to my genes or Aaranyaa Argan Body Massage Oil with Anti-Stretch Mark Formula. But I am pretty satisfied with the end result.
What I like about this product….
1. Keeps skin hydrated.
2. Suitable for all skin types.
3. Non-sticky in nature.
4. Doesn’t cause any irritation to skin.
5. Budget friendly.
6. Single bottle goes long way.
What I do not like about this product…..
1. Non availability in local market.
2. Packaging is not travel friendly
* Remember: Do consult your doctor before using any oil or cream on your stretch marks.
