MaterniCare // AD


As a veteran to weight loss, my poor skin has endured quite a bit. Now that I’m pregnant with an ever increasing waistline, I’m trying to combat the effects of pregnancy on my skin including additional stretch marks.

I was sent a bottle of MaterniCare® Pre & Post Natal Nourishing Cream to try out on my expanding bump and so far so good. Being 4 months pregnant my bump is rapidly making an appearance (I’m still waiting for the pregnancy hormones to increase my bust size!) so I’ve been using the Nourishing Cream after every bath and shower to ensure my skin gets the nutrition it deserves by improve softness and maintain elasticity.

“The Nourishing Cream is a clever blend of rich plant oils and essential vitamins developed especially to nourish and care for your skin as your bump grows, and then later support your body as it recovers. The gentle, hypoallergenic formula is packed full of pro-vitamin B5, almond, avocado and grape seed oils, as well as vitamin E and soothing calendula.” 

I’ve found the cream to be really easy to moisturise into my skin without leaving my hands feeling greasy afterwards. The cream absorbs quickly leaving my skin feeling refreshed and hydrated. The cream smells fresh and clean but isn’t overpowering. My skin is quite sensitive so I have to be careful with what I use on it but I have found the MaterniCare cream to be really kind to my skin without irritation. I’ll continue using the cream throughout my pregnancy and hopefully my skin will thank me!

“MaterniCare fights against the appearance of stretch marks but it does so much more! Its rich, nourishing formula is packed full of pro-vitamin B5 to protect you against intensely itchy dry skin that turns many pregnancies into marathon endurance tests. Then, after the birth, its unique properties boost the skin’s natural healing process in the important first few months.

Stretch marks are common during pregnancy what woman wants them? Massaging MaterniCare, into your breasts, tummy, thighs, hips and bottom twice a day will help keep your skin strong, smooth and supple throughout your pregnancy and your recovery”

 MaterniCare Pre & Post Natal Nourishing Cream is priced at £14.99 for 200ml and is available from Forum.
