BPC Review and Giveaway - Palmer's pregnancy line!

I am thrilled to be wrapping up the Baby/Pregnancy celebration at Acting Balanced today with a group of products that I've been using to pamper myself!  Palmer's, the makers of fabulous skin care products has a line of cocoa butter based pregnancy lotions and creams that they generously allowed me to try.

I was sent four products:

Tummy Butter:

Tummy Butter is loaded with healing and moisturizing ingredients. Beloved and proven Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula helps smooth, soften and tone pregnant bellies. Potent Vitamin E aids in hydration, Collagen and Elastin help improve the skin’s elasticity as it stretches and Lavender Oil offers calming and soothing benefits. The intensely concentrated formula helps improve the appearance of unsightly stretch marks, while also providing necessary hydration to the skin, which requires special attention and care during pregnancy.

Perfect for …
• Women desiring soft, healthy skin during and after pregnancy
• Those wanting to help improve the appearance of pregnancy-induced stretch marks

Tell me more …
• Contains pure Cocoa Butter
• Infused with potent antioxidant Vitamin E, Collagen, Elastin and Lavender Oil
• 4.4 oz. jar retails for $6.60

My review: This was great!  It is wonderfully thick and not greasy at all - it's kept my ever growing belly soft and pliable as E grows- to over 9 lbs, if the ultrasound is correct.  I love the scent and the ability to control how much is on my fingers because of the packaging!  The tummy butter was by far my favorite product that I tested...

Skin Therapy Oil:

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil is an advanced, multi-purpose skin perfection
product that can be used all over the body and face. This preservative-free, lightweight formula
contains an exclusive blend of key ingredients for scars, stretch marks, dry skin, uneven skin tone
and fine lines and wrinkles. The secret is in the unique Rapidermal Absorption Systeme® which
helps ingredients penetrate the epidermal layer to deliver targeted benefits without greasiness.
Perfect skin is merely a bottle away!

Perfect for …

the appearance of stretch marks

• Rosehip Oil – essential oil consists of 80 percent fatty acid and a high
Vitamin C content recommended for scars and aging skin

• 5.1 ounce bottle retails for $10.99

My review: this was great for the stretch marks on my back - and having hubby apply it!  I wasn't as crazy about using it on my tummy as it took longer to work in than the tummy cream, but it also worked great on my upper thighs, where I had old stretch marks and on my calves where I was feeling the effects of my pregnancy and wanted a bit of a massage...

I also received the Massage Cream and Lotion for Stretch Marks
The Massage Cream is 
Perfect for …
• Women desiring smooth skin during and following pregnancy

The Massage Lotion is

• Lighter formula ideal for use on entire body

My thoughts: These products were also good - neither was greasy or oily and they were good for more 'on the go' applications than the tummy butter or the massage oil... but I have to say that I really luv that Tummy Butter!
