Oh-lief Natural Olive Tummy Wax Review

Oh-lief Natural Olive Tummy Wax review

Naturally moisturizes and soothes a growing tummy.
Promotes skin elasticity. Ideal for preventing stretch marks, dry and itchy skin. Safe while pregnant and breastfeeding.

Cold pressed extra virgin Olive oil, Baobab Oil*, Virgin Coconut Oil*, Beeswax
*with CERTIFIED organic Ingredients

The texture is firm but creamy, thus eliminating any dripping during application. Happens when I was using Bio-Oil previously.
Upon application, it quickly dissolves and absorbs into skin as seen below.

Straight from tub

After application

Skin feels moisturized and loved. It is waxy, but not sticky at all when I have my clothes on immediately after application.
Until now, there is no indication of stretch marks nor dry and itchy skin.
Apparently genes play a big part of it, but so far I have not experienced any dry or itchy skin either, so it's all good!

It has a subtle smell of coconut. I can't smell it after applying the wax, just on my fingers that I used to apply.

I use about R2 coin for each application, and sometimes use a bit more just to make sure I cover every inch of my growing belly.

Value for Money
It comes in a 125g tub with the price of ZAR90.
I find the price reasonable as the tub is fully filled and cream is very compact!
What's amazing is that customers can bring empty Oh-lief containers to their blending houst at Salt Circle, Woodstock to have them refilled at a R10 discount. Talk about love for nature :)

I love that all their products are made from 100% natural and certified organic ingredients.
For me, I believe that products produced out of passion and love never fails as they always promise good quality.
I do need quite a large amount of wax to cover my whole tummy, and sometimes leave an oily wax on my clothes if I do not leave it long enough to dry
However, I still recommend you pregnant mummies to try this tummy wax that is free from all nasties, especially if you are using Bio-Oil currently.
This is my first Oh-lief product, but I am keen to try other products from them.
