Bio-oil is by far the best thing i've ever used! Lotions didn't help. even the ones that claimed to help during pregnancy and had shea and coco butter. Bio-oil has helped so much. I used it on my son as well when he had a scar on his face and you wouldn't even know it was there to begin with.

Stretch marks are hereditary and unfortunately, not preventable. My doctor said drinking lots of water might help your skins elasicity.

I'm doing a bio-oil vs mederma test, so far the mederma ones look a little lighter. I started using mama mio no more stretch marks right after the baby was born - it did ZIP! after 2 1/2 weeks of using mederma and bio oil I think I can see a difference in the mederma ones, possibly a slight one in the bio oil ones.

I tried Palmers, Bio-oil, and various other things, and they didn't work. Mine are terrible, mainly because I didn't get big until my last couple of months of pregnancy, and then I got huge really fast. Not good lol

But anyway, I've started using this stuff called Strivectin-SD, it's working really well so far. Thing is, is that it's really pricey. It's normally around 135 or a little less in stores or on their site. I got it for around 75 on Amazon.com though.

the only thing that works for me is using a stretch mark lotion and also tanning. the darker you get the more your stretch marks blend in and you can also get 15 mins of relaxation while tanning along with a great tan

Mederma makes a new cream for stretch marks. Its very good the only thing is that it is $40 and you can get it at any store like rite-aid, cvs etc. You use it for 2 months and it def works ive been using it and i love it. Plus a little bit goes a long way so the bottle lasts. Hope this helps

Use a combination of Bio-oil and a good moisuriser they work wonders together. ;)

I;ve tried Palmers, Bio Oil, olive oil, baby oil, and they kind of worked but I found that Queen Elisabeth Cocoa Butter Hand and Body Cream worked the best and made them fade the most. You can find it in an African beauty supply store. A Caribbean beauty supply store might have it too (if you are in Canada-not sure about elsewhere)
