I've used other Burt's Bees products and love their quality, and especially the fact that they use all natural ingredients, so I was excited to try out their Mama Bee Belly Butter when I was pregnant with my second child.

The tub of Belly Butter is 6.6 oz and was more than enough to last my entire pregnancy (although I never did remember often enough to use daily) and I didn't need very much per application. When first taking some "Butter" out of the tub, it was more solid than I'd anticipated, but after working it a bit on my belly, it did start to spread easier and rubbed in and absorbed well, with minimal residue left on my hands. It was a nice consistency, heavy enough to quell the itchies and soothe dry skin. I'm not a believer that you can prevent stretch marks, and this product reinforces that belief. Who's to say if I used it every day - the results may have been different, but I did end up with stretch marks (again!!).

The one area that I was really disappointed in was the smell. Although not horrible, the smell certainly wasn't appealing. It was borderline non-descript, and while I can see not having something heavily scented as pregnant ladies can have sensitive noses and are prone to nausea, something with a sweeter smell would have certainly had me applying more butter to my belly!

So for a nice, thick butter for that baby belly without the chemicals, preservatives, additives and other icky chemicals of the other brands, this is a good product. Just don't expect to smell like honey!
