Body cream

Hi ,

I'm currently pregnant and getting bigger by the day. I feel the need for some really rich body cream for the bump. Not for stretch mark prevention (I reckon you either get them or you don't, creams and oils do sod all) but just because a bit of massage feels nice. I've been using the dregs of a Body Shop body butter, but looking for any recommendations. I'm likely to be in hospital for a while too, so I'd like something a little luxurious to take in. Budget doesn't really matter but nothing stupidly expensive. I don't mind splashing out a bit.

Thanks!

Loccitane Shea butter is lovely, really good when your bump feels tight and itchy.

Liz Earle jasmine and somethingorother! It's Devine! Sorry I can't remember the 2nd ingredient but it's in a burgundy bottle, sinks in immediately and leaves skin really silky to touch.

Kiehls whipped creme de corps (the tub). Best ever.

Second the loccitane recommendation. They also do a lotion version which is really rich but still light enough not to feel sweaty or sticky in the heat.

I'm going near a L'Occitane tomorrow so will have a look at those recommendations. I think there's somewhere that sells Kiehls too. I've had facial Liz Earle stuff before which was lovely. And I'll look at the Elemis too.

As an aside, never occurred to me to shop on the QVC website.
