Oh honey, I've tried the expensive, the cheap, the once a day, the once a week, the serum, the Walmart, the Bath and Body Works, the internet order, the 4 step program.... I even started with the cocoa butter a good YEAR before I even GOT pregnant.
I couldn't tell you if my stretch marks maybe could've been worse... but I can't imagine they could get any worse... Cocoa butter and stretch mark cream is fools gold... IMO.
I will say that the creams helped with the itching. And after I HAD the baby, I started doing some tanning and you couldn't even see them. Even the spray tanning (if you don't feel comfortable doing the beds) thing helped cover up the purple... and later the nasty scrunched up "wet paper sack" look, which is ever so attractive! That's the best solution I've found after havin 3. I say it's God's curse for bein skinny before you got pregnant.... :)
