Do Stretch Mark Creams Work?
Not in the way you might think. See what our testers discovered
Claims: "Decreases the appearance of existing stretch marks"
Pros: Safe for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding, contains natural and organic ingredients, free of dyes, parabens and phthalates, easy to apply, short drying time
Cons: Expensive, must be used twice daily for first month
Comments: "True to this product's word, it is a 'minimizing cream,' not a 'disappearing cream.' I started using the [citrus-scented] cream a week after having my third child, and although I can't say my stretch marks are gone, I can say that their color has faded and my skin [texture] is much smoother." -- Robin
