    hey hun, I also have stretch marks on my hips and my thighs and calfs :think: , by the summer they will probably have faded and be more silvery (if there not already?) Iv been on the sunbeds to see if a tan will conceal them a bit lol, I wanna start going swimming but am a bit paranoid about my stretchmarks. not sur eif anythnig can help them to fade thoguh??

    Hi Sarah, Bio-oil is supposed to be really good for fading stretch marks, i was lucky and only got a few under my boobs (i think this is because of breast feeding). I have brought some though and am using it and it feels nice so just have to wait and see if it works x

    Sarah, they fade but I'm using a product called bio-oil on my scarred tum, and it says that it's good for stretchmarks too...bit pricey though.

    Smells nice too Lucy!

    I got mine from Holland & Barratt, it was £8.95 for a small bottle. I think you can get it from boots or even Tesco's as well. x

    I got mine in my local chemist...though it says on the bottle that it's not greasy and absorbs into your skin, my skin is often oily the next morning, and I apply it after my shower each day, and just before I go to bed. It smells lovely.

    It comes in a white box and the oil itself is kind of peachy in colour...
