I've been using it twice a day since about the start of my second trimester, and now I'm just starting the third trimester, and I have no stretch marks, so I would say it works.  It also helps with itching.

No, some women are just more prone to stretch marks. I slathered myself multiple times daily with my pregnancies, and still have a lot. I got most of them the last few weeks of my first pregnancy. Hopefully your skin will hold up well, good luck!

No.  Well, it'll make your stretching skin feel better, but it won't prevent stretch marks.  Sorry.  It's all genetic.

I bought some but the smell makes me gag so I have to buy non scented lotion on my tummy. I used it when I was pregnant with dd and it didn't really work but it could've worked for others.

I'm not worried to much about getting them, I mean they will mark what I have been threw in my life. I was just wondering if the lotion truly prevents them. lol

Thank you. My mom never got them and never used lotion, so maybe I won't get them.

I've been using the palmers cocoa butter stretch mark cream/lotion and it hasn't helped prevent them (since nothing does) but it's helped their appearance! Plus it feels really good to put on when your skin gets itchy, I find it very soothing.
