Boots Antenatal Massage Cream
When I joined the Boots Parenting club, I received a ton of vouchers which were either money off vouchers or vouchers to receive free products. One of the vouchers was for a free tube of Boots Antenatal Massage Cream. I can't remember how much it cost at the time and it isn't sold anymore in Boots stores. At the time I received the voucher, I didn't have any stretchmarks but I went and redeemed the voucher anyway and put the cream to the back of the cupboard just in case.
It came in a 125g tube which was white in colour with a pregnant woman's belly on the front and the Boots logo with what the product was underneath. The tube had a flip lid for ease of getting the cream out.
The cream was aimed at the stetchmark area of pregnancy. I tried every stretchmark cream available whilst I was pregnant and none of them worked. I remembered having this cream in the cupboard after many failed efforts and decided to give this one a try seeing as it hadn't cost me anything it was worth a shot. The back of the tube said that the best places to put the cream were the breasts, belly, hips and thighs.
The cream was easy to dispense from the tube, just a case of squeexing it like a tube of toothpaste. The cream when it came out was white and looked similar to E45 cream. It had a faint scent of cocoa butter and I was already resigned to the fact that this probably, like all the others I had tried before it, would not work.
When I applied the cream to my belly the first thing I noticed was that the cream felt very cool against my skin but it was also really sticky. It felt horrible. I used about a fingertip covered with cream and rubbed it in but the cream was not at absorbant and I found that I ended up having to wipe the remainder of the cream off of my belly with tissue.
The cream was greasy and just left my skin feeling horrible and "wet". I didn't use the cream again after that. I haven't seen this cream in Boots stores for a couple of years now and I think it is because it really was just a bad mixture. It didn't do anything for my skin at all though I did only use it the once but once was more than enough to put me off.
