    Default Bio oil help needed (or alternatives)

    Has anyone else had a reaction to bio oil?
    I'm 18 weeks and I've been using it for 4 days and just yesterday started getting a slight rash on my upper belly, it's only a bit itchy and not angry red but I'm guessing I'm going to have to stop using it.
    Anyone got any alternatives they can recommend?
    Thanks in advance

    I've been using Palmer's cocoa butter throughout the pregnancy, no itchiness, redness and no new stretch marks. I'm on 29 weeks now and i feel like my belly is so stretched out. I've heard there's a good body butter from the Body Shop bit i forgot which one it is.

    Expensive but a Clarins Body Toning Oil is great. I know a lot of it is down to generics but I used it through all 3 of my pregnancies and don’t have a single stretch mark, and I was BIG!

    No recommendations but just wanted to say that I've found I get a rash from Bio Oil. You're not the only one.
