Seriously Lovin’ Fran Kramer Artisan Shea Butter

March 8, 2012By 10 Comments

Since becoming preggers, I’ve been giving my belly lots of extra love! Every night after taking a long, relaxing bath, I slather my tummy with moisture-rich goodness, either in the form of jojoba oil, coconut oil, or shea butter. Sure, I might be trying to prevent stretch marks early on, but it also just feels realllllly good—it’s a tum-tum massage!

Up until the past few weeks, I have been obsessed with using coconut oil on my belly (it smells SO damn good), but I recently received some jars of från krämer shea butter in the mail, and I had to give ’em a whirl.

They are (pause) DIVINE. First of all, I love the packaging—each jar comes in a eathy-lookin’ gift bag with a different colored wax seal. The scents I tried were Natural, PalmarosaLavender, and Vanilla. Mmm, anything vanilla always steals my heart (and yep, that jar is already half empty). 😉 The ingredients are super basic (which I love!)—organic shea butter and essential oils. Each jar is only $10, which I think is a helluva deal considering these skin creams are certified organic with no fillers, waxes, preservatives, or animal by-products. Shea butter can be used all over your body—tummy, elbows, lips, you name it! A li’l goes a long way and it’s super thick and nourishing, so treat your skin to some shea buttery love!

Do you have a favorite shea butter product?

    I began using Shea Butter at about week 10 of my pregnancy, and applied it every other day or so to my belly, hips, and breasts. I use the Lady Soma brand Stretch Mark Treatment (Called Somatique) and I apply it every night and after showers.

    About a week and a half after using Lady Soma’s Stretch Mark Treatment, the two little stretch marks on each hip are fading away (no longer reddish/purple) with no signs of scarring!! The slight marks on my breasts also seem to be less noticeable. Genetics are of course the biggest factor in stretch marks, but the healing I’ve noticed to the areas that started getting marks after applying the Lady Soma lotion is pretty remarkable in my opinion. Here is the link if you are interested:

    I’ve been using pure shea butter (unscented) as body moisturizer and pure coconut oil in place of hand lotion. 🙂

    Totally not on-topic BUT I was just scouring youtube for What Not To Wear episodes, and guess who I found?? I felt like I was having an internet celeb-spotting! So cute, too, the episode talks about your fiance, and then I come and find you’re pregnant! Congrats! Hope you’re doing (stylishly) well, haha. 🙂
