nspa Mum to Be Nourishing Stretch Mark Oil

I had a lovely delivery yesterday from the people over at nspa and I just had to tell you all about it. I received the Mum to Be Nourishing Stretch mark oil, the Mum to Be Cooling Leg and Foot gel and the Mum to Be Soothing Nipple Balm. . 

I have only used the Stretch Mark oil so far and I have been really impressed so wanted to quickly let you know about it (although upon opening the parcel I could smell the yummy foot lotion so I can't wait to try this)

The oil is  "a luxurious blend of Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin A and E" according to the exclusive stockists Asda. I really love this product, I have previously used Bio-oil and Palmers Tummy Butter, the Bio-oil was great however it was really greasy and took ages to soak into my skin, leaving me like a greased whale in bed and putting it on in the morning was impossible as it would seep through to me clothing. The Palmers Tummy Butter was less greasy but it took twice as long to apply and I found I used it really quickly. 

The nspa stretch mark oil isn't greasy at all, of course it has the feeling of oil, but it soaks into my skin really well, the smell is lovely and subtle, not overpowering at all. I put the oil on both morning and night and have no problems with feeling greasy. It makes me skin really soft, even when I do the morning stretch mark check my tummy feels so smooth.

I have only been using this for a day but I have been very impressed so wanted to share my thoughts. I can't comment on its effectiveness at preventing stretch marks yet but I will update you. I am also applying it on the few that have cropped up on my side and thighs so hopefully in time it will help them to look less angry!! 

As I said before nspa products are sold exclusively at Asda supermarkets and they are super affordable. A 150ml bottle of this will only set you back £6, what a bargain!!! I would recommend this even if you aren't pregnant and want skin as smooth as a baby's bottom. 

I can't wait to try the Cooling Leg and Foot Lotion! I guess the Nipple Balm will have to wait a while! 

You can order it here 

Thanks nspa!!! 

* I was sent this product by nspa for the purposes of review, all opinions are entirely my own and 100% honest. 


  1. Rubbing is key in expanding blood flow in zones where stretch denote have a tendency to improve and hence more water and supplements will achieve this place. This will successfully decrease the plausibility of stretch marks treatments happening.

  2. I have stretch marks, I also gained weight from an unbalanced diet and now I am trying to get in shape and using coconut oil, rub it twice daily on stretch marks and have been somewhat successful!
