    I've used palmers for years- I have stretch marks from weight gain when I was younger and it helps :)

    I hate bio oil - it's too greasy !

    I have stretch marks on boobs mainly due to them being so big!

    I do aswell from when I gained weight and they grew- got them on inside tops of legs too - I'm dreading this part of pregnancy as I know I'm going to look like streaky bacon :(

    I used palmers cocoa butter cream in my last pregnancy from week 5 until week 7. I had to stop because the sweet chocolatey smell aggravated my HG and I barfed every time I got a whiff. X

    Tapatalking from my blackberry!

    I got pretty bad stretch marks on my tummy (literally as I went overdue :(), but have carried on using this since having my little one, and, six months on, they are fading nicely. :)

    I've been using it and so far so good! I was using bio oil but found it was a bit too greasy / oily. The palmers stuff is lovely - v thick an you only need a little bit. No stretch marks (yet...lets see how long that lasts!!) but my skin is much much softer since I've been using it x

    I have been using this for a few months now, I tried quite a few at the start but this has been my fave, I have developed a few stretchmarks on my boobs but they are fading well already!! No others have made an appearance yet xxx

    Ohh, this is interesting - I was going to try bio oil, but might not if you ladies say it is greasy!

    Anyone tried the Cussons one? I have a free sample, so will see what that is like too!

    I have the bio oil, but it is very greasy and smells a bit funky too. Might have to give the Palmers stuff a whirl though.

    I had aloe Vera lotion with vitamin E from holland and barretts. It's amazing. Aloe Vera helps skin regenerate and heal and the vitamin E is dead moisturising. Has no funky smell and absorbs really well :) xx

    I've been using the cussons one since around week 14 and so far so good! It is a little on the expensive side now that it's back to full price again (£10), so I bought some Palmers cocoa butter stretch mark cream instead today. It's half price in Boots at the moment, so less than £3 x

    I use bio oil and it is pretty, well, oily.

    I think I might give another one a try so thanks all for mentioning what you use!

    I used just the regular Palmers stuff when I was pregnant with my first. I had lots of stretch marks from growing at puberty, so was terrified of getting more, but I didn't get any during pregnancy. I was extremely lucky - don't know how much difference the cream made, but it helped when my skin felt really stretched. I had a reaction to Bio Oil, so I only tried that for a couple of days xxx
