As you know I’m going through moisturisers literally in the bucket load since becoming pregnant. Personally I believe stretch marks occur no matter what you do but a good moisturiser can help a tiny bit and stop the skin feeling so tight and itchy.
Anyway I have been loving using this cocoa body butter by Ziaja that I received in a goody bag at a meet up (#sbbcwrapupparty) that Aisling from Total Makeup Addict organised a few months ago.
Ziaja is a family-owned polish cosmetics company that uses herbal extracts and vitamins combined with modern technology to create award-winning high quality products that are Ph balanced and not tested on animals.
What I love about this body butter is that it contains Vitiman E which is what I love to see as it is an antioxidant that repairs and protects the skin from damage and helps produce collagen to increase skins elasticity. It also contains essential fatty acids Omegas 3+6 to deeply moisturise and nourish your skin.
I love using this body butter as it’s not too thick and heavy so I found it absorbed quickly into my skin and left a really light barrier without it feeling sticky. My skin feels really soft after using this. It smells like chocolate too so that’s another big bonus from me who loves chocolate haha!
I think this is a great moisturiser for pregnancy to help possibly reduce the amount of stretch marks you get ad well as take away that stretching itching feeling on the tummy and hip area 🙂
Overall I’m very impressed with this brand as it was my first time to try it and I will definitely be using more of their products of this one is anything to go by. I’m amazed at what high quality it is for super affordable prices!
This costs just €7.99 for 200ml and is available online here or from most pharmacies nationwide.
