At a glance:

The Mum to Be Moisturising Bump Butter has a luxurious texture that moisturises and hydrates your bump. With a great consistency that makes getting dressed in the morning easier, the lovely subtle smell went down well with our panel of mum testers.

What they say:

“With ultra-moisturising Shea Butter, Rosehip Oil and Vitamin E, this hypoallergenic butter melts into the skin providing instant comfort and hydration, leaving it soft and nourished. This product helps to prevent the appearance of stretch marks and boosts the natural elasticity of skin.”

Tested by mum Chloe Walsh for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this cream to my fellow mums-to-be as it's not got a greasy finish and leaves your bump soft and smelling lovely. It makes a lovely addition to my dressing table. The tub is easy to store unlike other brands in tubes and I would recommend it as part of a daily routine or even just as a treat.

How did this product make your life easier?

The cream is very easy to access due to the lid on the tub, which means that any excess can be put back in and therefore not wasted. The smell is amazing and leaves my belly lovely and soft. It is a pleasure to use!

Would you choose this product to win?

I think this should win as the product smells amazing and leaves your bump soft, not greasy. The design of the container is very attractive too and you only need one hand to use the cream.

What changes would you make to this product?

I don't think any changes could be made in order to improve this product, it's design or the usability - I think it deserves ten out of ten in all areas. I would be happy to use other products in this range and would recommend it to everyone.

Tested by mum Terri Fedeczko for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this product to a friend who was pregnant and on a budget as it is good value for money and gives you good peace of mind knowing you are moisturised. It was very easy to use in comparison to oils I have had in the past and it rubs in very easily. I had no issue rubbing it into my stomach in the morning and putting my work trousers directly on top, which again was a problem with the oil.

How did this product make your life easier?

It made my life a lot easier in a couple of ways. Firstly, the product’s packaging was very practical. It was easy to just screw off the lid and take out what you need with your fingers, meaning there was no wastage. Also the fact that there was no dry time was really appealing, it soaked straight in and I could leave the house promptly in the morning!

Would you choose this product to win?

Personally, I would not choose this product over others as I don’t think the packaging is very inviting. In terms of how effective it is, I use Bio Oil at the moment and this was just as effective, so I will probably continue to use this alongside the oil.

What changes would you make to this product?

I would say the fragrance should be more floral. Equally, I would add brighter or more distinct packaging.

Tested by mum Stephenie Beaumont for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Yes, I thought it had a nice smell and consistency and it wasn’t sticky or runny! The price point is a big reason for recommending it too - I don’t think it is particularly expensive and know that other brands can cost twice this much, but in my experience, didn’t have any better results!

How did this product make your life easier?

The aim of the product is to help with the stretch marks of pregnancy by keeping the skin moisturised. I used it during pregnancy and have found that I have not developed many stretch marks. I can’t say for sure that this was down to the cream, but it may well have contributed, which I’m very happy about!

Would you choose this product to win?

I don’t have particularly strong feelings on the fact that it should win, but, equally there was not anything I didn’t like about the product. I think it would be nice if it was shortlisted, as I think it was very reasonably priced. Mums-to-be have so much we need to spend our money on during pregnancy, so it’s nice when these self-care items are available cheaply. Every mum deserves a bit of me-time, and products which are not overpriced help us achieve this!

What changes would you make to this product?

A personal preference is that I would prefer the product in a squeezy tube rather than a pot. I find the pots can be a bit messy as you have to scoop the cream out with your fingers, and if you drop it with the lid off (which can happen once you have it on your hands) then it goes everywhere!

Tested by mum Leanne Fretwell for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this product over others to fellow mums as the price is great in comparison to others on the market. I've also used products from nspa’s wider range and really like them too. The design of the packaging, although not overly important, is pretty and looks nice in my bathroom.

How did this product make your life easier?

As a pregnant first time mum I have been concerned with developing stretch marks. I've done a lot of research on the best ways to keep stretch marks away and was keen to try different products. I do have extremely sensitive skin, so unfortunately some that I have tried have not agreed with me. This product is easy to get hold of in your local supermarket, easy to store and agreed with my sensitive skin!

Would you choose this product to win?

It's definitely a product I am enjoying using in my daily routine throughout pregnancy. Reading up on the best ways to keep stretch marks at bay, a lot of people swear by a branded oil on the market. I haven't purchased any of those due to price and the chance it may not even work. I am currently using NSPA bump butter in the morning and the same range’s oil in the evening. So far I have developed no stretch marks and my skin feels very soft.

What changes would you make to this product?

The first time I used this product I honestly did not like it and did not want to use it again – the formula seemed to be heavy and sticky. But I persevered and used it a couple more times as it to helps keep my skin really soft and supple, I don’t mind that it’s a bit heavy as a product. If I could change one thing it would be this sticky feeling but all in all, it's worth using for how moisturised your skin feels.

Tested by mum Tana Blatcher the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Yes I would. The design of the tub, the smell, the thickness and the absorption of the cream make it a winner for me. It easily fit into my bag and because of the screw lid, I was happy it was always sealed and would not leak. I found the lid also prevented any muck from my bag or dressing table getting into it, keeping the cream intact.

How did this product make your life easier?

As a mum and a mum-to-be, this product was very easy to use. The tub and lid design enabled me to determine the exact amount of cream I wanted, so no wastage. The cream is lovely and thick and quickly absorbed, meaning I could dress almost immediately with no feeling of stickiness. The smell was refreshing without being overpowering and the luxurious feel of the cream was soothing to my expanding bump.

Would you choose this product to win?

I was pleasantly surprised by this product. Other creams I tried just didn't absorb and didn’t ease the itchiness I was feeling with my growing bump. I have previously been a huge advocate of Bio Oil to prevent stretch marks, but I honestly have loved this product equally. The thick cream really is soothing on the skin and any dry skin patches instantaneously felt hydrated. The smell is lovely and refreshing and not overpowering (essential for those of us with enhanced sense of smell during pregnancy). I have been using this product for over a month and my skin is soft and smooth. No signs of stretch marks and the itching has gone!

What changes would you make to this product?

I wouldn't change anything about this product except the cost, which would initially have put me off. However, after using it, I can conclude that it does last quite a long time so maybe it is worth it!
