  • BIO OIL. I had twins and barely have a stretch mark. I used it every day after my shower on damp skin from neck to knees, front and back. It lasts a long time if you do it that way so it doesn't run the cost up.

  • Lanoline works better than anything. You can get it at the pharmacy.

  • I used Palmer's Cocoa Butter Cream for stretch marks... I got it at Wal Mart. It was about 5 or 6 dollars. I used it both times I found out I was pregnant... and I did not get any stretch marks.

  • I have always wondered about creams. I never got more than a few small stretch marks myself, but I was really little when I was pregnant.
