This month I am excited to share with you a review on Biodermis Epi-Derm C-strips. These wonderful silicone strips are designed especially for C-section (caesarean) sites and with regular and correct use will help heal your surgical scars beautifully. I teamed up with Exquisite Bodies (wholesalers) to trial the strips with a ‘real mum’. I invited expressions of interest from mum’s and randomly chose a lovely new mum to trial the c-strips and review them for us. Thank you to Karli who trialled the c-strips and provided her honest feedback on them. I hope you are as impressed with the results as I am 🙂 Over to Karli ……
I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to trial Epi Derm c-strips. When starting the trial I was 10 months post c-section and wasn’t expecting to notice too much of a change in the appearance of my scar. However, after the first progress photo [after one week of use] I was amazed that I was able to notice changes in the colour. By the end of the 10 week trial I also notice my scar looked and felt a lot flatter than before starting the trial.

The c-strips are incredibly sticky. The instructions do say you can cover them with tape however I found I never needed to. I found that with regular cleaning the strip remained sticky. As the strip starts to age it lifts in the corners. That’s when I discarded the strip and started a fresh one. Replacing the strips regularly meant that it didn’t have time to get stuck on clothes or collect fluff. With regular cleaning of the strip and scar one strip lasted me roughly a week and a half.
I was pleasantly surprised with the comfort of the strips. I thought they may be stiff and uncomfortable and rub on my clothing but I instantly forgot I was wearing it. I liked how easy the strips were to use. They very quickly became part of my daily routine.
I would recommend using the c-strips and would definitely use them again for subsequent c-sections. I found it beneficial taking progress photos, not only for the trial but also for myself. With the busyness of life, I may not have noticed the small changes early on – I was very pleased with the results!

Thank you so much Karli – you really were awesome in the way you undertook this trial! And a huge congrats!!! to Karli who has just let me know that she is currently 15 weeks pregnant with her second little bub and says she will definitely be using the strips again if a second c-section is required 🙂
