  • I used Mustela Cream for mothers. I think it's called Stretch marks double action and it really worked for me. It lightened and took away my stretch marks, although I used it while I was preganant and after giving birth too. I can seriously tell you that you cannot tell I had 2 kids. I was skeptical at first but gave it a try anyways. You can read some reviews on drugstore.com too. However, i've heard that stretch marks can be genetics too. Good luck!

  • cocoa butter didnt work for me during or after my pregnancy. but the one thing that has worked for me and i recommend it to anyone is " bio oil " its about $20 and you use it twice a day everyday for at least 3 months and not only good for stretch marks but any kind of scar's.. good luck
