Helps to prevent stretchmarks and reduce their appearance. Assists with dry, itchy skin and helps to maintain skin suppleness . Also to maintain skin elasticity.
Does it do what it should?
GAIA is a great product that definitely helps to reduce the symptoms of dry itchy skin. The body butter smells great and feels so soft and creamy. I haven’t used the cream for a long enough period to establish if it helps to maintain skin suppleness or elasticity. As yet I have not experienced any stretch marks so I can’t say if it has helped to prevent or reduce their appearance.
Would you recommend it and why?
I would definitely recommend this product as it feels lovely and smells wonderful. Although I did find the cream a bit thick and thought it took a while to absorb into the skin I am assuming this is due to the thick texture of body butter. I found the cream definitely helps to reduce dry, itchy skin not just on the stomach and breasts but also any other areas that are effected by dryness. I have also found using this cream a good excuse for your partner to give a well-earned massage when applying the cream. I have found that in this pregnancy (my 2nd) my skin has been extra sensitive and as a result I have been reluctant to use a variety of creams and potions as it concerns me that it will make my skin break out even more. I think the fact GAIA is an organic cream helps to eliminate any further flare ups and makes my skin feel amazing.
I have no doubt I will continue to use the cream after my baby has arrived as it feels and smells so amazing. The cost of the cream varies from store to store however I feel it is reasonably priced and I would definitely be comfortable paying the asking amount for GAIA.
