    Yay! Had some dodgy looking stretch marks on my hips which I didn't think were particularly attractive, so put on some Fake Bake and voila! I now have a yummy tan and my stretch marks have all but faded away! Am now a happy bunny! :happydance:

    its fake an isnt it?
    i got palmers body butter, its a really tick cream, and it stopped mine in its tracks, i read though that stretch marks are inherited and its a hormnal thing so if you get them you get them no matter what

    I managed to get through all my pregnancy last time without them, was so proud, then 3days before Amelie arrived I got some on the lower part of my bump. I think my skin just gave up, she was a big baby so it did quite well. Not sure what will happen this time, I'm putting on loads of bio oil and body lotion anyway.

    I just read in my fit pregnancy magazine that the fake n' bake stuff has not been testing in pregnancy and is a chemical that does get into your system. I want to use some for my legs but i have to admit this is one thing that I have thought twice about.
