    Default What stretch mark cream / oil do you use?

    I use Clarins body treatment oil. Used with ds now 2 and am currently 30 weeks with twins. Not one stretch mark so far. I think it does come down to genetics but I still massage like crazy after a shower!!

    I was big on moisturising to begin with, hate dry skin!
    I used bio oil and body butter from the body shop and moisturised 3 times a day, couldn't stand my belly being itchy.

    2 kids later and I don't have a single stretchmark
    My mum had 5 kids and she didn't either. Genetics apparently play a big part.

    Hmm I'll have to check with mum to see how she went with stretch marks! Mum doesn't get her belly out very often but when she has, I don't remember seeing any! But I got stretch marks on my thighs and upper bum during puberty and it wasn't as if I put on heaps of weight, I was a size 6-8 through most of high school! So maybe I'm just someone who is succeptible to them. Oh well, bye bye bikini ;-)

    I use Clarins oil and Clarins cream together. It's quite expensive at $70 each but all my friends who had used these products didn't get stretch marks. Also Clarins is very good for their pregnancy creams/products.

    I have been using vitamin E oil and cream, both of which you get from the chemist, the have an orange sticker. The oil you need to mix with a moisturiser or another oil as its very think and sticky, the cream is much easier to use. I usually apply it after a shower (if i remember) or before bed.
    No Stretch marks yet (touch wood) at 36 weeks.

    You won't necessarily get them during pregnancy if you got them during puberty. I got a few on my hips (and behind my knees??!) during puberty and none during pregnancy.

    When I hit puberty I was super skinny and still got stretch marks on my hips and boobies even though I did not gain any weight.

    When I was pregnant with both my DD's I got them all on the inside of my thighs, hips all the way around to my back, all over my stomach, boobies, and arms. However with dd2 I gained absolutely NO weight besides baby yet still got a ton of stretch marks, particularly the ones on the inside of my thighs all the way down to my knees.

    I think your either destined to get them or you're not.

    I used palmers cocoa oil, rose scent.

    It worked until 36 weeks then got a whole heap of stretch marks along the underside of my belly.

    Stretch marks are genetic / hereditary so there's not a lot of point in using these treatments.
