What our testers say…
MFM mum Caroline Carpenter
I really liked this product; it had a really lovely light floral scent.
It had the perfect consistency, it wasn’t too thick but not too light. It was easy to use and rub in, and if I was in a rush I didn’t feel I needed to wait ages before putting on my clothes. It also didn’t make me feel like I had a ton of cream on!
This is not the cheapest of products but I did feel it was worth the price and I think I will use this after my pregnancy.
Caroline’s score: 4.5
MFM mum Natalie Brown
With a clinical sounding name like Bepanthen and a price tag of £24.99 I’d previously steered clear of this product, but I couldn’t have been more wrong.
This cream is excellent – it absorbs quickly and easily, smells gorgeous, makes your skin feel instantly soft and lasts for hours.
It comes with an air-powered pump at the top so it’s easy to use and store, and it’s difficult to inadvertently waste any of the 150ml by squirting too much out.
My post-birth tummy – not to mention my legs, arms and shoulders – all feel pampered thanks to ingredients including extract of centella asiatica (a tropical plant which apparently stimulates collagen production), provitamin B5 and olive oil.
Even at £24.99, I think this cream is excellent value and I would continue to use it as a body cream as well as part of a pre and post baby beauty routine. The old adage is true: you get what you pay for.

I wasn’t aware that Bepanthen did products for pregnancy because I associate the name with baby creams, so I was pleasantly surprised.
It has a pump dispenser, which means there is minimal waste but it can feel quite hard to use sometimes with slippery hands.
It rubbed into my skin easily and was absorbed almost instantly, which is great when you’re in a rush.
The packaging doesn’t have a ‘luxury’ feel but the smell is pleasant and after application, my skin felt extremely supple and elastic.
This is one of the more expensive creams but the bottle will last for a long time. I would definitely use this product again.
