Since my pregnancy, I’ve dreaded the day I’ll see stretchmarks in my tummy. So I searched for recommended products online and health and beauty stores until I zeroed in on Vanilla & Co.’s Organic Cocoa Whipped Butter. I chose cocoa butter because it’s a natural antioxidant that clears and smoothes the skin and is frequently used for treating dry skin and stretch marks. It has vitamin E that will be beneficial for my pregnant skin. I also considered trying out Shea Butter from another online seller but it’s too expensive, so I first tried the most affordable one.
Organic Cocoa Whipped Butter:
Our truly raw and organic Cocoa Butter (theobroma cacao) contains generous amounts of antioxidants and has a naturally long storage life. Boasting a high level of tocopherols (Vitamin E) and moisturizers, it is highly recommended for the prevention and lightening of stretch marks. Due to its healing properties, our organic Cocoa Butter is also a great treatment for chapped, dry and itchy skin. Every jar of Vanilla & Co.

Our Organic African Shea Butter came form the hardwork of devoted African women co-op groups under Fair Trade and organic certification standard. It is still made in the traditional way without the use of chemicals. Shea Butter is effective in its soothing, restorative and regenerative properties. Its even highly recommended for skin ailments such as relief for blemishes, sunburns and eczema.

I used the Cocoa Butter on my tummy twice a day after every bath, in the morning and in the evening. At first, I didn’t like it’s nutty heavy scent but it’s grown on me after everyday use. It’s non-sticky and the cocoa butter melts on my tummy in an instant. And the verdict, 34 weeks and no stretchies! My OB mentioned it too that I still have no stretchmarks.
I also got the Whipped Buttercream for me to try as my body lotion, got the Sweet Pea Vanilla scent. I had a hard time choosing from the buffet of scents available but since I love vanilla and Bath and Body Works’ Sweet Pea, I chose this scent. The lotion is somewhat creamy and thick but is absorbed by the skin quickly. The scent lasts long especially if you layer it with BBW Sweet Pea too. As for its moisturizing properties, I’d say it’s on average because I still get dry skin here and there.
I love that the two Vanilla & Co. products come in a tub so I can scoop it out till the last drop.
