Any recommendation for stretch mark cream?


Just want to be prepared. Is there any point to using them? If they do help, what brand have you used and would you recommend it?

I use derma mum stretch mark oil. It also comes as a cream but i prefer the oil. Its been great. I only have a few stretch marks which have recently appeared and Im 39 weeks so i hate to think how many i would have had without it.

I used rescue oil from home bargains for £2 or £3, and haven't got 1 stretch Mark (It's a cheaper version of bio oil)

I was told to use Palmer's Cocoa Butter from Day 1 & it worked (I avoided stretch marks completely). I'd highly recommend it as I know I'm susceptible to them. Fingers Xd for you too! x

I used Ginseng nourishing cream right through my pregnancy (and used it on my baby) and 17 years later we are still using it (even use it on my face) Its a natural cream, no parabens, no perfume, I wouldn't use anything else. Its really difficult to get hold of though. I found a website in the UK which ships it. The shop is on the incostress website. What they don't advertise is that when you buy you get a customer loyalty code when gets you discount off everything in their shop the next buy. I have had $10 off every order so far.

34 weeks and so far so good (touch wood!) using Mum to Be Organics 'Rich Tummy Cream' by Little Me Organics. It has a gorgeous smell if nothing else! I also rub in a bit of Jergens Cocoa Butter occasionally Especially around the tops of my thighs and on my boobs in case of stretchies there!

Update: 37 weeks plus and still stretchie free... Fingers crossed it'll stay that way!

I second this. I used this throughout pregnancy and avoided stretch marks until I went overdue and even those at very light and faded already. Lx
