What is the best stretch mark cream you've used? I've tried Palmers Coco Butter for stretch marks and it hasn't helped. Any advice?

it's genetics so there's really no way to prevent them. only ways to make them less noticable. I just got them a week or so ago and am 34wks as of yesterday. They itched really bad but are now getting better with Palmers Stretch Mark cream and Nutrogena lotion. I tried Bio-oil but broke out in a horrible rash. Hope you find something that works.

When it comes to having stretch marks, I wrote the book. I guess it's heredity, but I was doomed to get them once I was pregnant. Instead of using a mixture of cocoa butter and other oils I just went ahead and ordered a cosmeceutical grade stretch mark removal cream. It was expensive, but it really did help lessen the appearance of even my worst and deepest marks in record time. It was really worth it to me

I love St. Ives Collagen Elastin lotion, not greasy, smells good, and has worked for me, tried palmers with my first pregnancy, and couldn't stand the smell!!!

iv been using the palmers tummy butter as well and sadly has not worked for me, although they arnt deep ones at all just lightly on the surface so im hoping after all this they will lighten and fade away

I use Bio Oil, Palmers Tummy Butter, Carottene, and a special blend of cooking grade cocoa butter and almond oil melted down together then left to harden then you rub it on your belly/hips/whatever. So far, I have none but I still have 3.5 months left. Howeeeever I am huge for how far along I am as I carry far out front so I'm impressed that I have none yet!
