  • waste of money... the only thing that will work to get rid of stretch marks is cosmetic procedures like laser. If you want to lighten them up quite a bit (they wont completely dissappear), the best way is actually exercising.

  • I used crazy Vita E oil! All over several times a day! Didnt get a single one except underneath my Breasts a little bit. I gained 68 lbs! But if it has anything to do with it, mmm not sure. I think eaither you get them or you dont. Vita E oil is inexpensive and i think worth it!

  • supposedly scar stuff (like mederma) will help reduce the visibility of stretch marks. but its like, 17$ for an itty bitty tube of it, i don't think i could bring myself to spend so much on it, since i'd need a lot lol my belly is covered with old stretch marks (no new ones this time around, knock on wood!)

  • I never used anything and I didn't get a single stretch mark on my stomach, now my boobs look like they were in a fire, but anyways!, so I think you just get them or you don't. But I've never used Bio oil, so I have no idea
