Product Review: Basq Resilient Body Oil

There has been a lot of buzz about the Basq line of prenatal skin and body care. Suffice it it to say, Basq has earned every bit of the buzz. What an amazing line of products. This Sharp Mama was especially impressed with their Resilient Body Oil, specially designed to fight and prevent stretch marks and maintain hydration on the ever growing baby belly.


Some stretch mark oils on the market are greasy, don’t smell great, and leave lovely little stains on our shirts. Gross. Basq’s product is the exact opposite. The oil has a lovely spa-like fragrance, absorbs beautifully into your skin, and because it absorbs so well, no stains! I’ve used and sampled many other tummy specific stretch mark oils in the past, but to me, Basq’s product feels far superior. Its also a great product to use post partum to make sure your skin bounces back to normal and stays hydrated. I can’t wait to try more of Basq’s line! This product is officially Sharp Mama approved!

A little more info on what’s in the Resilient Body Oil:
