    Hope there hasnt been a recent topic on this lol! I have been using palmers cocoa butter stretch mark cream as I have been told by friends etc thats its good. I used this on my boobs, thighs and tummy from the day I found out I was pregnant. My tummy already has slight stretch marks as has my boobs, just wondering if there is anything better going about than this, obviously the ones I have may not go but even to prevent futher ones lol! I am very slim so I reckon I will have them anyway! HAHA x

    I started using Boots honey and olive maternity cream but it hasn't really stopped any stretchmarks appearing. At £5 a tub I would have thought it would work! I think some people are more prone to marks than others. My stretchmarks don't bother me, they will fade in time. :)

    I've been using the body cream from the Sanctuary or the Mama Mio stretch mark oil / body cream and so far I don't have any new ones (sure I will at some point though).

    I think the general feeling is if your prone to them your gonna get them whatever you use!

    I used coco butter with my first one, but I still got streach marks (did get big) this time I am using Bio Oil, not only have I not got any new ones but it is fading my old ones too! Just make sure it is well rubbed in before you get dressed.

    I have them just round my belly button, my sister swore by cocoa butter but I think I am going to try bio oil as it seems to get the best reviews

    I think it down to your genetics whether you get them or not, rather than what cream you use.
    I can't be bothered, got old one's already from losing loads of weight as a teenager, and from my first pregnancy.
    When they fade you can hardly see them anyway

    I bought bio oil but I can't stand the smell.
    I'm using Mother and Baby balm (or maybe butter?) from l'Occitane. It is lovely to put on and doesn't smell at all. If I don't moisturise my tummy the skin feels sore because of dryness. I have no stretch marks yet but then I wouldn't expect to at 16 and a half weeks - my belly has a long long way to go! :D

    I've been using bio oil and so far no stretch marks :D Someone bought me the clarins stretch mark control for by b/day a few weeks ago and that is really good too. Big thumbs up to bio-oil though from me.

    I think it's a genetic thing though as my mum didn't have any stretch marks for all three of her pregnancies and didn't really gain too much weight...thank god so far I have been pretty much the same.

    i'm using mama mio tummy rub- it smells gorgeous and is working on my tummy so far! not on my boobs though- but to be honest i dont think any cream could stop stretch marks appearing on them- they grew so much so quick!

    I have a few stretch marks from labour last time, hehe how cruel is that? I didnt have any until the contractions came!! They are genetic anyway so nothing will help if you are going to get them you will. I am using Plamers Cocoa butter which is lovely and leaves my skin supple, the only reason really that i use it is that i get excema and i itch like mad if i dont where the skin is stretching.

    Shark liver oil worked a treat at fading the old ones, defo be using it again. Its brill!
