This is the worst product I've ever used. I'm currently 7 1/2 months pregnant and I don't have stretch marks anywhere except my butt and boobs. I bought this TODAY, and smothered a whole lot over my boobs, butt , inner thighs, and tummy. First off It smelled horrible.. Sort of like cigarettes and dust. Second, after about 5 minutes of it being on it burned like a mother. I had to use freezing cold water in order to get the burning to stop. This product is horrible. Don't waste 8 bucks on it.
Does not work for stretch marks, I've been using it rigorously for my whole entire pregnancy and although it smells good it didn't do anything to prevent them or fade them after pregnancy.
I started using Palmer's Tummy Butter when I was about 3 months pregnant (Oct-ish of 2009). I used it EVERY day up to when I gave birth. However, I ended up getting the Stretch Mark Lotion from Palmers for random times throughout the day when I would start to feel an itch, or was just too lazy to use this Butter (The Tummy Butter would take about 5-10 mins to rub in and then at least 10 to soak in).
The lotion soaked in A LOT faster, but the moisturized feeling didn't last as long.. I mostly used it to prevent all of the itching that goes along with the growing stomach. I would apply it a couple times a day. More like 5 or 8 times a day at the 9 month mark... If the moisture would have lasted longer I would give it a better rating. The only thing I really didn't like was the smell..
I think I went through 3 bottles of it, and I still got stretch marks..They didn't start to show up until I was around 7.5 months along, but then all of a sudden BAM, they were everywhere. I've always been skinny, and my skin just hit it's breaking point. (In the rear view mirror, I should have started using Bio Oil around 5 or 6 months along. The result would have been a lot better)
I can honestly say that this lotion did help to prevent some stretch marks, as in it could have been a lot worse. I only got them under my belly button, and a little on my hips. I have very fair skin, and most women that have a fair complexion tend to get more/darker stretch marks.
Well this stuff doesnt really workk.. It' has a bad smell and like I think this didn't have a great affect on me.. It' stays on your skin but it's not as thick as the actual cream.. This fades away after a few min..
I got this as a sample after buying a few other products and whilst it wasn't used for what it was intended (stretch marks, etc.) I found it the only moisturiser/cream that SIGNIFICANTLY reduced my burn mark from my eyelash curler which hadn't eased its irritation and redness for over a month and a half. From having a bright red line under my eye to practically nothing- I would absolutely recommend this as a heavy duty moisturiser.
This stuff smells bad! And it does nothing for my stretch marks. I have used up quite a bit of this stuff and still no results for helping my stretch marks at all. Not impressed.
I must say I cannot stand the smell of palmers coco butter but when I was pregnant I put up with the smell and I used the streth mark cream even though I did not have any before I was pregnant and well i never got any either, I know it can be down to your genes and skin's elasticity but I would def use this again if i was pregnant again.
This lotion is moisturising, it applies evenly, and isn't terribly sticky, but it does nothing for stretch marks. I found the smell pleasant, but my husband hated it. It's cheap compared to other products that help with stretch marks, but it does not work nearly as well. Mustella, Mederma, or plain old vitamin E tablets work a lot better, and aren't as sticky.
If you continue to use this product without stopping it will prevent and diminish the appearance of stretch marks. Stretch marks will never magically go away. I happen to get them from a growth spurt. I used to be the shortest girl in middle school but since high school I had a growth stunt. It sucks but at least my stretch marks are hidden. Don't do any yo yo dieting that dramatically change your weight that may cause it too. Always put on lotion on your skin to give it elasticity before you exercise, other wise exercising excessively may cause stretchmarks
I've been using this for a few weeks now and I do like it.I use it all over my body.
REVIEW OF PRODUCT:
-skin feels a tiny bit tacky after application, but not horribly so
-Smell is not so great -smells "chemically" to me
