Welcome back my friend! Today, I’m delighted to introduce the beautiful multipurpose oil I’ve been using for the last few weeks – it’s Zowena Skin Barrier Support Oil!

One of the essential skincare items of pregnancy is without a doubt a stretch mark oil or butter. In pregnancy, your skin is constantly changing right from day one. Alongside a growing bump, surging hormone levels are affecting your pregnancy skin too. Your first line of defence against skin problems such as stretch marks, itchiness, and scaly skin is moisturising every day.

This skin-loving oil from Zowena is designed to support skin in pregnancy and beyond. It’s formulated to protect the skin’s natural barrier function and help it to retain essential moisture. It helps to prevent stretch marks from forming by keeping your skin strong, supple, and nourished. Use it daily on your body to enrich and soothe. It’s gentle enough to use on your face, too.

Nourish your body in confidence with 100% natural origin ingredients and enjoy a silky texture that melts into your skin making it quick and easy to fit into your daily skincare ritual.

Through a carefully-formulated blend of plant-based oils chosen for their essential fatty acid profile (Omega 3, 6, and 9) the oil promises replenishment and protection for your skin during this time of amazing growth and change.

The texture of Zowena Barrier Support Oil

The Barrier Support Oil contains a really impressive selection of oils including squalane, marula, and melon seed oils. With no synthetic fragrances, it’s delicately fragranced with green mandarin, lavender, rose geranium, and chamomile. As you can see from the INCI, the ingredients are just bursting with goodness.

I love how this oil contains added stabilised vitamin C (great for pregnancy related hyperpigmentation) and vitamin E, such useful antioxidants to help skin.

So what do I think to this oil?

I’m currently 8 months postpartum and my skin is dry and parched. I barely have time for body skin care right now. But this oil is a pleasure in my routine several times a week. The white glass bottle with its handy pump closure is a huge bonus. It definitely makes applying the oil easier.

It’s silky and feels great on the skin. Squalane is one of my favourite carrier oils. It has such a beautiful skin feel and is incredibly moisturising, and this really comes through in Zowena’s oil. As with all oils, it’s best applied to damp skin to lock moisture in and aid hydration. The fragrance is a refreshing and comforting floral/citrus.

Luckily stretch marks are not a problem for me. But my skin feels so much more comfortable from using the oil – it helps to smooth out my dry and flaky skin – especially on my legs and arms. My skin is softer and feels more supple. The daily ritual is helping me come to terms with my postpartum body, too.

This oil is also really great value for money – you get a big bottle for under £20.
