The product is OK, it is moist , but a little bit heavy for summer.
I wanna say is, the packaging is too bad, and the bottle cap is not that kind of picture shows. When I have received this post parcel I found it was soaked by oil, and the bottle is almost empty!
That's really a bad shopping experience !

I am pregnant and was looking for a product to help avoid stretch marks. I really wanted to keep using this oil, esp. in the winter. I agreed with other reviewers that the smell was pleasant, the oil was easy to spread on after a shower, and if you wore some sort of undershirt after applying, it would not stain your work clothes. My skin DID feel soft and moisturized for a long time after applying. However, after three days of daily use, my skin broke out. i think the oil was too heavy, or the need to put on an underlayer after applying may have clogged up my pores. I stopped using the oil and my skin cleared up. I am switching to a vitamin E body butter from the body shop. I am glad it worked for other people, but I had to stop using it. I might use it once in awhile, but not everyday.

    Comments about Burt's Bees Mama Bee Nourishing Body Oil, 4 fl oz:

    I am pregnant with my first, so I am trying out products for the first time. I am very worried about getting stretch marks, so I started using this as soon as I learned I was expecting - with the hope of warding off a few long term marks. I am not far along, however, so I can't say whether this works for preventing/lessening stretch marks.

    I gave this a try since it seemed to be a good beginner option, for not a lot of money. I use it everyday, and here's what I found works best: right after showering (before I towel off), I rub this over the three Bs. I let it soak in while I continue with my morning bathroom routine, and then wear a bathrobe until I am ready to dress for work. Using this method, I have not had any of my clothing stained and I have found my skin feels soft the entire day. The bottle isn't huge, but I have been using it for a few weeks and barely used 1/4 of it. I will definitely purchase again.

      Comments about Burt's Bees Mama Bee Nourishing Body Oil, 4 fl oz:

      I started using Mama Bee in my third trimester after I finished the other product (Weleda Pregnancy Body Oi). Mama Bee works just fine and I did not see any stretch mark. But I still prefer Weleda. The texture of Weleda is richer but little pricer. Around $20 for 3.4 oz on [@]. I think Mama Bee is a good product for its price. I will use Mama Bee for summer since it is lightweight and I will use Weleda for winter. P.S. I started using Weleda at the beginning of my second trimester.

      Comments about Burt's Bees Mama Bee Nourishing Body Oil, 4 fl oz:

      I started looking for a skin moisturizer fairly early on in my pregnancy. I am short-waisted and started expanding early on, and my skin started to hurt with the dryness and pulling. I've tried several skin treatments, but this is by far my favorite. It's best after towelling off after a shower: I immediately put this on, hitting the "three b's". It feels wonderful.

      Since I work in Cubeville and have a serious commute each day, I cannot be constantly reapplying products throughout the day. This oil will last me at least into the evening when I arrive home.

      The potential downside: if you wear silk or wool against your skin, this may mark or stain the fabric. If you wear cotton blends as a first layer, you should be fine, I have not had a problem with stains or marks due to this oil.

        I have been using this product since the end of my first trimester with my second child. I use after the shower and rub generously all over my parts that have experienced the most stretching, and STILL NO STRETCH MARKS!!! It has a lovely, light lemon scent and is very relaxing, isn't greasy, and maintains smooth skin. I love it and will continue to use it after baby is born!

          I used this all over my belly, hips and thighs during my preganancy and luckily I ended up with no stretch marks. I was pregnant during the summer and this was a little greasy but it was worth it considering it worked!

                      I use this twice a day on my growing belly. I know stretch marks are more genetic, but I started using this just in case! What it really helps with is the itchy belly. My belly is the only area of by body I use it on and it's the only area that isn't flaking skin. I absolutely love this product and will be recommending it to every pregnant friend I have! Do be careful with good clothes, I've had one shirt get a stain, but I was able to get it out.
