Did anti-stretch-mark oil work for you?

I'm currently using Mother's Special Blend 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.
