    im using palmers cocoa butter at the mo, and have been using it for a couple of weeks. I used cocoa butter oil with my last pregnancy and that was pretty good. Hardly got any marks, but i dont know if you can even get that anymore! (used to get in in boots) my daughter likes me using the cream cos apparently i smell like chocolate lol, she keeps threatening to lick me.... :rotfl:

    Ive only used bio oil on old scars and it didnt do much for me....but i think its worked for some people?

    I use Bio Oil on Debbie each night. So far so good. :)

    I apply a fair bit and gently work it in using a clockwise motion. Flump seems to like it as (s)he wakes up and starts kicking where my hand was. :lol:

    I'm on the Palmers cocoa butter too, mainly because it smells like chocolate. Hubs has likened it to getting in bed with a big ice cream :shock:

    Not sure how much more effective than normal moisturiser it is and with me it's pretty much a case of locking the stable door after the horse has bolted as I never realised how many existing stretch marks I had before I started using it :rotfl:

    Bio Oil seems to be good-I never used it though. I used Sanctuary mum to be cream and then Pregnacare. Still didn't stop the old stretchers though - think if you're gonna get them, you're gonna get them!

    I can't stand much in the way of smells so although I bought bio oil I've hardly used it because of the smell :puke:
    I use mother and baby balm from l'Occitane. It is gorgeous, doesn't smell and isn't greasy.

    I've just started using the Sanctuary Mum to Be stuff aswell, I also use a massage bar from Lush which has cocoa butter in it. While I put all this stuff on my belly/boobs/thighs my OH massages my feet with Lush fairtrade foot lotion - would definately reccomend for weary feet, it's lovely and pepperminty and it makes your skin really soft :)
