It lasted me about 4 months using it twice daily. you dont have to be extremly generous with your aplication, just cover all the skin with a fine layer, if it only lasts a month you are using way too much

after using the product for many months i'd say i agree it does last plus or minus one month - i go through it quicker now that i'm in my 8th month of pregnancy, i use a little more to cover the entire surface area of my expanding belly.

The old version was a very light scent (in the peach and white tube)- the new version (pink and white tube) has a flowery, perfumy scent. I had no problems with the first one, but the second version made me nauseaus during pregnancy.

This has a scent that I particularly found strong maybe because I was hypersensitive to smells when pregnant. But some of the other reviews also mention it has a strong smell.

The fragrance is really light on this, not perfumey at all! I think it smells a lot better than cocoa butter- that's actually why I tried this product out.

stretch marks
I've recently gained weight not due to pregnancy and I have fresh pink stretch marks on my hips. Will this cream help with those? Or could you recommend a cream that will help the best.

Thanks

I actually only saw results with bio oil (I saw even better results with the walgreens version...weird huh) But I used both the Walgreens Oil and Bio Oil and they have made my old stretchmarks blend in better, and thats 3 years after having a baby!

This would be an excellent cream for stretch marks even if they were not caused by pregnancy. It's specifically made to help diminish the appearance of stretch marks.

I go through the bottle very quickly, faster than I thought it should be. I only apply it at night on my belly and my thigh. I would say I need 1 bottle per month.

I'm on my 7th month and have been using it twice since day one. I just started the second bottle so I would say is a safe bet to say that you will only need a couple of them..it says on the isntructions that you should keep using it at least 1 month after your baby is born.

Question
Does it work for OLD STRETCH MARKS?
I'd like to know if this works on OLD stretch marks. I've never been pregnant. I just have old stretch marks from growth spurts back in high school. The stretch marks have been around for a couple of years. I'm in my young 20s...

PS - I've tried scar products & Palms Cocoa Butter formula (drugstores) but they haven't worked AT ALL !!! Can anybody recommend a stretch mark remover that actually works?! Something that will completely remove all my stretch marks in a few months (w/o having to resort to surgery)??

I don't think anything will COMPLETELY remove your stretch marks. But I'm 22 and have the same types of stretch marks you're talking about, and this lotion has definitely taken the color out of the old stretch marks and has kept me from getting new ones while pregnant.

From the research that I have done, it either just takes time for them to fade or surgery. I would say that this cream would be a good one to help fade marks but it will take months I'm sure. good luck!

will this cream remove light stretch marks?
I had stretch marks on the side of my hips when I was younger and after having my first son my stomach looks like a little brain. I have always been small around 100-110 lbs. But when I was pregnant I was 125 lbs mostly belly now I just need to decrease my stretch marks on my belly and tone my four pack back up. Does this cream work for dark stretch marks

I would not reccomend it. The only thing I saw results with was with bio oil (I saw better results with the walgreens version believe it or not!). I used it about a year after my daughter was born so the stretchmarks were old by then and it has lightened them down a bit so now they are less noticeable (they are still there but they blend better with my skin). Good Luck!

Stretch Marks Double Action is both a reparative product for treating existing stretchmarks, as well as a preventative product in keeping skin supple to prevent new stretch marks from forming.

However, as it sounds like your primary concern is existing stretch marks, you may benefit more from their Stretch Marks Intensive Action which focuses mainly on repair.

Does it help to prevent stretch marks?
Hi, I am pregnant & am looking for a cream that will help prevent stretch marks. Currently, i am using cocoa butter & was wondering if there was anything that was better to help keep the skin tight & not stretch marked. Thanks!

I highly recommend Mustela Stretch Marks Double Action, kind of pricey if you use it properly, but well worth the money. I used it twice a day, everyday, since I was 3 months pregnant. Stretch marks run in my family for pregnancy AND I gained 60lbs BUT I am only one week away from delivering and I do not have a single stretch mark on my body except for 4 small 1/2 long stretch marks on my lower back area. My doctor cannot believe how great my stomach looks.
