Did anti-stretch-mark oil work for you?

I'm currently using Mother's Special Blend http://www.mothersspecialblend.com/ it was reccommended to me. Did you use anything and did it help at all with stretch marks? So far mostly my chest has grown, but I want to get used to using it regularly now.

  • Yes, and no. I used cocoa butter and it helped but it did not stop me from getting stretch marks, I think they would be alot worse if I didn't use it, I still use it and they are getting better.

  • I've used it all over and i got them on my boobs & side thighs/butt area
    and just NOW getting small ones on my stomach, I am 37 weeks.

    Creams don't stop stretch marks, if you're going to get them you're going to get them.
    Although i wish the shea butter i had would have worked.

    And i had shower wash too. used it everyday.


    you can try what ever you want, but its not guaranteed to work.

  • I used the cocoa butter, and it worked pretty good.. until recently. Im 36 weeks and just starting to notice some small ones, so I guess I can't really complain.

  • I just drank TONS of water the entire time I was pregnant. I heard that it makes your skin more elastic. I was a COW when I was pregnant with both and I have not one stretch mark.
