I dont think you can get rid of them with cream, there caused by tearing in the skin, if I remember right, so creams wil have litte to no affect, though some may mask the problem

Stretch marks are genetic no getting rid of them consider them your battle wounds :-) I'm very proud of mine I have them all over my stomach my three children put them there when I'm 50 and there all moved out my battle wounds will still be there :-)

I've heard that there happens to be no way to really get rid of them :(. They should fade with time. I also have terrible ones from my boy and no cream has worked either. I just think of the quote, "You are a tiger that has earned her dang stripes!". They may not be pretty but the result was worth it :).

There is an expensive cream that i use that fades and shrinks stretch marks. And honey, trust me. It works. Stretch marks are caused by the bottom layer of skin tearing from being stretched. The cream that i use is called StriVectin-SD

BioDerm works really well. However your marks won't completely go away it just reduces the redness so you can't see them as much. I have them up to my kneck lol

Stretch makes will never "go away" but you can make them fade and smooth over time. They have lots of products, like maderma for stretch marks. Google it, you will find lots of stuff, most of it is expensive.
