Has anyone had any luck with getting rid of stretch marks? I don't have a lot of money and every time I look into what "works" it's always really expensive. Right now, even the Mederma or Bio-oil would be an investment for me, I don't want to spend $30 on a tiny little bottle if it doesn't work.
I shouldn't complain because I really lucked out and didn't get any on my stomach and I was back to my prepregnancy weight by the time my daughter was 7 months old. I used Palmers Cocoa Butter through out my pregnancy on my stomach and breast and my stomach is fine but my breast are not. I've still been using Palmers but I don't know if it's doing anything.
I think the breast stretch marks are worse because I had a breast reduction when I was 17 because I had really large breast (I was a 34 FF, they didn't even make my size because I was so small around the middle) I was a 34 B/C afterward, but now that I've had my daughter and nursed her I'm a 34 C/D but my breast are covered in stretch marks, some light ones from before my pregnancy, and some really thick ones from pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Did anyone have any luck with OTC creams or anything? I will spend $30 if someone says it worked for them, but if the truth is that I'm stuck with these stretch marks I'd rather save the $30.
