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, Palmarosa, Lavender, 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?
