2nd Trimester Craving of the Day: Sweet Minty Belly Oil

Written by Bryce

When I was pregnant with my son, I was a chipper 24 year old that had resilient-as-all-hell skin that could stand up to a 55 pound weight gain (that’s right, I was a house… and I didn’t have the wild Captain Crunch diet of Jessica Simpson, either). This time around I’m a few years older and a wee bit wiser- I’ve got to oil my thorax up to avoid all the wild stretch marks that so commonly plague women. I’ve tried a bunch out, and as far as the luxury category goes, I’m totally in love with Basq’s Resilient Body Oil. For starters, it’s velvety smooth and not so overwhelmingly thick that you feel goopy after. The consistency is just right, but it’s also loaded with rosehip oil, sweet almond oil, and a ton of other magically safe and beautiful ingredients that’ll leave your feeling feeling and looking like a natural dream. And the best part is that it sort of smells like sweetened Moroccan mint tea, and around my house (I’m married to a Moroccan man), that’s pretty good <3
