I am so excited to tell you about this product – I have been trying it out over the last few weeks and can honestly say I would highly recommend it as one of your pregnancy essentials! Secret Saviours is an anti stretch mark band that you use alongside two amazing skin products – the Luxurious Day Gel and Moisturising Night Cream. When used together this unique combination makes it 70% harder for stretch marks to appear. I was so impressed when my Secret Saviours delivery arrived – just for the gorgeous packaging alone!
The band on it’s own provides excellent lower-back and bump support and I have been really impressed with it. Initially it reminded me of ‘shape wear’ and I have not had the best experience with this type of thing – I find it never fits me properly, it rolls up and is uncomfortable. However, that is not the case with this band – it comes in four different sizes (Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large) and there is a handy guide on the website for you to measure yourself to ensure you order the correct size. I have found it SO comfortable, the fit has been perfect and the support, invaluable. I have worn it on days when I know I am going to be on my feet a lot and it has really helped with my back and hip ache. I even wore it when I was recently a bridesmaid and felt comfortable and well supported all day!
The support is so impressive considering that isn’t the main purpose of the band – I have tried other bump support bands in the past and they have provided nowhere near the level of support that this one does. There are special pads on the front of the band, almost like suckers, which really help to hold it in place. When used with the day gel it fits really snug against your skin, and there is of course the added bonus that it is helping stop stretch marks! I have stopped using any other products on my bump now except these two, so that I can see the results. So far I have found that I have not had any additional stretch marks which is amazing so close to the end of my pregnancy, and also that the skin feels really smooth and appears less red. I will write an update to let you know more about the progress I made using these products after I have had the baby.
A real highlight of the Secret Saviours package is the night cream. I have got into a really good routine of applying it regularly every night and find it is a nice way to focus on my bump and wind down before going to bed. The product feels exceptionally luxurious and high-end, it makes a lovely treat at the end of the day and it is nice to know your skin is being cared for while you sleep.
I started using Secret Saviours when I was around 33 weeks pregnant, but it is recommended to start using from around 12-14 weeks. I wish I had known about this product sooner, even just for the band alone! You can buy top up items from Secret Saviours too, if you need to go up a size in the band later on in your pregnancy or if you run out of the day gel or night cream. The initial package which includes all three items is available for £69.95 from their website – a worth-while investment for a comfortable pregnancy.
