  • Bio oil worked well for my stretch marks :)

  • Honeslty, they are all gimmic. What they do is require you to rub the area which will cause more blood to flow to that area and stimulate healing. Any lotion will do the same thing.

    I have a friend that scars really badly from any cuts (can't remember what it's called). This is what she told me and it works. I took Merderma and put on one hip (that's where my stretch marks are) and Aveno on the other. They both turned out the same.

  • Yeah, unfortunately there's no miracle goo that's going to prevent them or remove them. It's all in your genetics. If someone invented something that actually did work, that inventor would be RICH!!!!

  • I tried the coco butter when I was pg, and it didn't work. I have an unreal amount of stretch marks. I'm just resigned to them. I earned them. I'm keeping them.
