  • None. Sorry, I know that's not the answer you want. I think if there was a real cream or lotion that did work, everyone would know about it and use it (especially pregnant women and mothers). Time has done well with mine, they are very faded, noticeable, but faded.

  • Time. I know its not the answer you want, but its the only thing I have tried that has worked.
    There is a medicine on the market (unsure of the name though) that is supposed to fade surgery scars? You could look into that.

  • you gotta exfoliate the skin first off, every single day. i suggest a face scrubbing brush and some baking soda. after that use aloe vera gel.

  • Stretch marks will NOT go away withut surgery. They are like scars. You can try Mederma though otc. Its crazy expensive, but supposedly it helps the APPEARANCE of scars.

  • Palmers works as far as moisterizing ,but nothing other than surgery works,There are no such creams for stretch marks,no miracle in a bottle for wrinkles either.I also herd that if you get a sunburn on them they will go away ...not true.

  • i used "Prefer On" which worked very very well for me, my stretch marks are so light that when i tan u can see them at all and when i dont tan u barely can see them either. You can get it at walgreen or cvs i def. think it would work, it did for me

  • Love palmers Coco butter. Used before, during and after pregnancy and although not stretch mark free my residual stretch marks are not bad ( slightly visible but not raised).
