Motherlove Review and Giveaway

Now that my tummy is starting to grow a bit, and I am over half-way done with this pregnancy, I am working my darndest to keep stretch marks and other lovely marks of pregnancy at bay. Now that I am on my second pregnancy, I know already that a mommas body changes after pregnancy and there are some things that you just can't prevent, but I do think you can definitely minimize or prevent stretch marks in some cases. First and foremost, I believe that what you put into your body really effects the strength and elasticity of your skin. So, believe me, I am pumping my Vitamin E, OmegaGuard, Cinch shake and the rest of my lovely vitamins and nutrients. But, the skin is your largest organ, and what you put on your skin can make a difference too.

You know that I am very picky about what goes on my and my family's skin. I prefer organic, completely natural products that have no dangerous toxins or chemicals. I think that just makes sense. That is why I was very excited to see that there is a pregnant belly salve out there that meets those criteria from Motherlove. Now, all of us moms with growing tummies don't have to worry about what we are putting right over our babies and into our bloodstreams.

Motherlove says, "Our dedication to consistent quality means crafting only the finest, purest products, and using certified organic ingredients designed to nurture, soothe and heal women on their all-important journey of nurturing life. Each of our formulas are time proven and backed with integrity, wisdom and an intimate knowledge of herbal remedies."

That really is true of this company! Not only are their products safe, high quality, and nourishing, but this company is also very eco-friendly and supportive of mothers all over the world. Love, love, love that!!!







So, back to their Pregnant Belly Salve - My eyes first go to the ingredients, and they are sooooo nice. We are talking about organic shea butter, organic marshmallow root, organic rosehips, organic lavendar and organic chamomile, apricot oil, organic beeswax and organic calendula. Then, I go right to smelling it.(knowing I won't be sniffing in any dangerous chemicals) It has a light scent of lavendar that is just so calming. Another important factor to me is how does it feel on your body. I really don't prefer oils and rubs that don't absorb and feel sticky or get all over clothes. The Pregnant Belly Salve is very soft and felt like it absorbed almost right away into my skin, so I don't have to worry that most of it will get all over my clothes.

I just love rubbing it all over my tummy, and I think the baby loves it too because I always get a few kicks in return. That's the best!

Motherlove has so many great products to help with everything from pregnancy to birthing to breastfeeding and your new baby. Take a moment to go explore all they offer!
