Review: Kelo-stretch
 I thought I'd pretty much got away with stretch marks whilst pregnant with Ethan, I had very minimal stretch marks right up until the point where my belly exploded during the last few weeks, I was housing what appeared to be a dinosaur egg in there and I was pretty much right, he came out at a hefty 9lbs 9oz. So yeah it's fair enough to say that my belly did a fair bit of stretching and in turn I got a rather large amount of the oh-so-dreaded stretch marks!
Above is Kelo-stretch, it's what I've been using since giving birth to Ethan after I was very kindly sent it for the purpose of review. Kelo-stretch is brand new {launched April 2013} by pharmaceutical company Sinclair, and it has been specifically formulated to prevent and correct stretch marks. It can be used from the fourth month of pregnancy and is suitable for Mums that breast feed. You rub it on to areas most likely to be affected by stretch marks or areas that have already been affected twice a day. 
I use Kelo-stretch everyday after my morning shower and then again as I'm getting changed into my PJ's at night and so far I'm impressed. My favorite thing about it is that I don't feel 'sticky' after rubbing it on, which for me is of importance because I really really dislike rubbing creams on and then putting my clothes on and feeling them stick. As a busy Mum I don't have time to wait around for creams to dry, so this is perfect for that. I'm not a massive fan of the smell but it doesn't bother me enough to not want to buy it. 
In regards to my stretch marks, sadly I'm not brave enough to take pictures of them and post them on the Internet, but I am happy to report that even though they are currently still there I feel that they are a lot less red and angry looking which I'm obviously very happy with! 
Kelo-stretchTM is availableonline for £25.99 at www.kelo-cote.co.uk(as of 29th April 2013)or from selected private clinics.
