Advantages: Good packaging, allows you to use a small amount of oil
Disadvantages: none for me
This is a review of a bottle of Cocoa Skin Therapy Oil, made in England by a company called Tropic Sun that I recently emptied. As I have mentioned in previous reviews, I'm now in the third and final trimester of pregnancy and am doing my utmost to prevent the dreaded stretch marks and keep my skin nice and supple and stretchy.
I spotted this bottle of oil in Home Bargains and thought I would give it a try. At 50ml it's a tiny bottle but with oil, a little bit goes a long way so no need for a massive bottle.
I have used this oil directly on my skin and also a generous squirt in the bath when I am not washing my hair, the lazy way of getting the oil on to your skin! The smell of this oil is quite delicious, buttery and yet not overpowering. It is not as strong smelling as some other cocoa butter oils I have used which is fine by me. When applying in the day time I tend to wear a bump band over the area of skin I have just oiled to protect my clothes from absorbing the oil although I have had not had any problems laundering the oil from where it has touched clothing.
The bottle is packaged in a thin cardboard box, which is brown and white and inside is a plastic bottle which is clear with a white screw top lid. The top of the bottle has a small hole that you can shake or squirt the oil from. The actual oil is a clear yellow colour that I think has a tinge of green in it too.
I thought this oil was a great bargain for 99p. You can also find it online and it is a little more expensive with the postage too.

I like this oil and think it is great for the price. I am probably a bit heavy handed with it when it goes in the bath as I think well it didn't cost a lot and I can get more! It doesn't absorb in to the skin as quickly as the stretch mark creams I have used but I do like how soft my skin feels after use and it's not really greasy. I think I will get some more of this and continue use after the baby is born as it seems to have done a good job so far.
A repurchase is on the cards for me next time I visit Home Bargains!
