My sweet stretch oil deal

 

I simply LOVE shopping on ebay!  I find myself getting amazing stuff for much much less than retail prices, and it’s really tempting NOT to keep shopping for more.

So I received my Earth Mama Angel Baby Natural Stretch Oil today!  I used two bottles of this stretch oil during my first pregnancy and have nothing but good things to say about it.  The scent is heavenly, light and not intoxicating, and it did actually help me sleep better.  Even more importantly, it helped eased the itch I experienced on my belly when it stretched, and helped prevent stretch marks.  For my second pregnancy, I thought I could do away with stretch oils, because I wanted to save a buck or two.  Besides, I was already using a moisturizing body lotion that worked to drive away the itch. 

But how wrong I was!  Several days ago, I read that moisturizing lotions do help to ease the itch, but they don’t do anything to prevent stretch marks.  So I had to go hunting for this same stretch oil that had served me faithfully the first time I got pregnant.  The online store I purchased it from the last time did not carry it anymore, and so I hunted high and low on the internet till I ended up on ebay.

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw that a 4fl oz bottle of the stretch oil was being auctioned on ebay at only $10, when it retails for almost $25!  I instantly placed my bid for $10.50, with about 8 hours left on the auction, and the next morning, I was overjoyed to find out I was the winning bidder!  Woohoo!

I made the payment by PayPal, and waited patiently for the stretch oil to arrive.  My prayers for it to arrive before the Thanksgiving holidays were answered when I saw the package in my mailbox this afternoon.  Hurray for ebay!

But seriously, every pregnant momma should have a bottle of this handy. I can’t wait to slather this on tonight! :)
