I've been on a mission to find the perfect stretch mark cream. For me, it seems I can tell right away if a cream or oil will work for me. It needs to sink in and absorb quickly and be extra emollient. There is not currently anything on the market that has been proven to get rid of stretch marks, but the use of a stretch mark product could prevent more from happening or moisturize and nourish the ones you have, so they are less obvious.
I had a sample bottle of two different stretch mark creams that I received- Apothederm came in my Sircle Samples, and Strivectin was in a Test Tube from QVC.
I was not overly impressed with this product. It didn't have much of a smell, so that was a plus. When I applied it, I felt like it was just sitting on top of my skin. It really didn't seem to do much for me. It felt like I was applying a regular lotion to my skin, when my stretch marks needed much more TLC!
This one was pretty nice. It was a little thicker and sunk in right away. It had a slight minty like tingle. It felt really good going on, and I could feel it on my skin keeping it firm and tight for a few minutes after applications. Not sure what a large bottle of this retails at, but I'd be likely to purchase this in the future if I needed a stretch mark cream and it was on sale. Winning!
What's your favorite stretch mark product? They seem unavoidable, whether you're pregnant, recently gained a pound or two, if you're losing weight, or growing. I've personally had a few of them all my life from a growth spurt as a kid. I am on a journey to find my favorite stretch mark product, so share with me in the comments if you have one you know works well!
