When I first found out I was pregnant I rushed to a local natural store and purchased Earth Mama Angel Baby Body Butter in hopes of preventing the dreaded stretch marks... unfortunately in my opinion, this stuff stinks... I mean scent wise... it's just awful.
You see, I have a thing for all things Clarins.... it's the fragrance... My love of this brand was sparked years ago and is directly tied to my love of Mexico and hot, sunny beaches in general.... the product that started it all... Clarins after sun moisturizer. It smells amazing, the scent lasts forever and it instantly calms me.
In Montreal I was on a shopping role and decided to check out the Clarins counter at Ogilvy's. I walked away with two products.... an alleged pregnancy must have arsenal to ward off stretch marks.... in short.... I was not let down. Not only do these products smell soothing and refreshing at the same time, they also seem to somehow work. When I was younger and quit gymnastics my body decided it was time to grow some hips.... I got some hips and some stretch marks to match. The marks are disappearing!
So for now I have decided that my mental well-being which, these days, is directly tied to how happy my nose is... beats out my desire to go organic.
Thank you Clarins....
