Does anyone have a preference or know which works better the Mederma or the Bio Oil? I didn't have stretch marks above my pants line until labor lol I am hoping to fade them along with shrinking my belly so I look good all around but don't know which (if either) of the creams/oils actually work. Thanks for any info/opinions :)

i heard the mederma works great. i use the original mederma formula on scars and it works great!!!! you really have to take the time to thoroughly massage it in though or it doesn't work.

Thanks, I thought I had some of the orginal mederma around, I should look and see if I can find it and start using some  :D

 I want to try the mederma... Right now I use one of Avon's stretch mark creams, not sure if it worked or if it was just time that helped mine from my daughter. loll.

Hmm how much cheaper is Avon's stuff then the mederma? lol 

Anyone have any natural "remedies"? I have been looking some up and found a lot that say olive oil, aloe vera gel, vitamins e and a capsules (broken open) mixed together.

rubbing any oil helps scars because the massaging gets the blood flowing which helps healing, but i'm not sure how it works for stretch marks. was just looking at mederma stretch mark cream reviews versus bio oil reviews for you and it seems that bio oil is the winner (and cheaper)

Haha I wouldn't mind having big boobs if they weren't covered in stretch marks!
