    Default Best cream for scars / stretch marks?

    I've tried bio oil but don't like the oily feeling. Anyone recommend a great cream for scars please?

    I don't know how it would work for stretch marks but there's a product called Mederma; it's medically recommended for use on surgical scars to aid in healing and prevent them becoming raised and unsightly. It's available at most pharmacies but from memory it's not cheap. I used it about 10 years ago, worked great but I remember thinking it would be too expensive to use on large areas.

    Palmers Cocoa Butter is good for preventing stretch marks, not sure about reducing/removing them though...

    No topical application of any product that is not a prescribed drug is going to do anything for stretchmarks because stretchmarks are too deep in the skin... skincare products, by law, cannot penetrate that deep.

    BUT... it's the massage that helps. It's not what's in the massage medium, just massage itself, that helps prevent and reduce the appearance of stretch marks.

    I use a body scrub called frank and it's amazing it's made of coffee so stinks but your skin feels amazing and it didn't take long for me to notice my scars fading so I imagine it'd do the same for stretch marks!
