i was a size 3 when i got pregnant. i am 4'11". i gained 35lb, but it was ALL belly. my skin was pretty much stretched to the max. and then left to shrink back up to its previous size. i had stretch marks all around my belly button and on the backs of my sides. they were not extremely deep, except for one, but they were definitely noticable. and there were a lot of them. the one that i said i can still see is the one that was deeper than the rest, but it is BARELY noticable and it is about a third of the size it used to be.

the marks that i said are "gone" are about as far gone as i would expect a stretch mark to go. they are drastically more shallow and lighter. technically they're still there, but you would have to get your face inches from my belly to see them.

not only that, but this product is also FIRMING. im not goin to say it's going to be like a tummy tuck in a bottle, but it does HELP with that excess loose skin too.

UNBELIEVABLE for stretch marks. but honestly you have to use it religiously. every day, 3 times. no exceptions. if you do that, you will be able to see a difference in a week. i promise.



ps. REVITOL is the highest rated stretch mark cream available. i have never used it or know anyone that has used it though.

i used this and i recommend it to everyone i know who is having/has had a baby. yes, it is expensive. (they make a smaller bottle for $79). yes, you have to use it THREE times a day, every day for like 2 months. and you can't use it if you're still breastfeeding. but it is worth it.

i only have one visible stretch mark left on my belly and it's only about a half of an inch long. i have not tried it on my breasts yet.

they also make one now for sensitive skin.

Yes! I had two kids within a yr of eachother. I am having sooo much trouble losing my baby weight I am still 30lbs over my pre pregnancy weight. Ughhhh......My stretch marks are only on my stomach and boobs. I started using the bio oil and I was getting to the point where they were fading alot but I started forgetting to put it on twice a day. So I ended up just not using it anymore....if I had of kept up with it I am sure it would have worked though.

they recommend 4-8 weeks. i was able to get the full 8 weeks of one of the big bottles because a little bit goes a long way.
you can buy it at Sephora stores. you may be able to buy it at some department stores in the cosmetics department, but im not sure. if you dont have a Sephora near you, you can use that link.. that's just Sephora's website.

How long did you use the cream for? Did you have to buy more than one bottle? I too am little and gained all of my weight in my belly and so it covered in stretch marks. Even if they don't go away completely I want them to look better than they do now. Where did you buy this product at? I saw your link online but is there a store you can buy it at?

Taylor,
How bad were your stretch marks? It got rid of them all the way? Mine are deep in places so I was wondering how yours were that went away.

Me too! My pre pregnancy weight was 120 and I gained 40 pounds. My daughter was pretty big at 8.12, in fact I had to have a c-section. I mainly have the stretch marks on my belly. I tell my husband it looks like the sun on my belly lol. She was so big and I am not that big so I was stretched to maximum capacity.

I bought this cream from GNC and tried it and it seemed to help a little but it was expensive and made my hands pruney. I asked my doctor if there was anything that worked and she said try to keep the area mosturized but the only way to completely get rid of them is laser surgery - which is costly!!
