i am stretchmark prone and work in skincare. i used Mama Mio and loved it. they have a tummy butter that i started using daily from above bust to knee (the stretchmark area) as soon as i found out i was pregnant. later, when i started to get big and needed a little more i added the tummy oil. i used the oil right after showered when my skin was still damp because the water makes it easier to spread and penetrate, let it dry for a few and towel off the excess and then layered on the tummy butter. i didn't get any stretchmarks which was amazing considering how large i got. each cost $35. i love this line. they also make a lot of other products all for expecting/mothers. there are several products to use after to help get your skin back to normal as well.
