This salve has been very helpful in relieving itching and painful feelings of stretching skin.
The only downfall is that it is slightly oily, but not as much as other products I've used. This will not stain your clothing, as other products I have tried did stain (after you spend all that money, the last thing you want is to get oil spots on your nice new maternity clothes!!) My solution to the oily feeling is to wear a stretchy belly band after applying the salve. This keeps my clothing from pulling on my skin and supports my skin too.
My favorite part of this salve is the scent. Other lotions smell like chocolate or mango, etc. and I just can't take the smell! This salve has a lovely light scent that disappears quickly...so I can smell like the fragrance of my choice and not a chocolate dipped mango, ha ha!
