We tested the product on two women. One women had older stretch marks and the other was currently 8 months pregnant. The test ran for three months and both women had experienced reduced visibility. The pregnant woman dramatically reduced the appearance of her stretch marks by 60% and the other reduced her stretch marks by about 33%.
We did not see any stretch marks disappear but they were much more less noticeable at the three month mark. When stretch marks are in the red or purple stage this Stretch Mark Cream really helped them fade to a white or slightly silver color.
This Stretch Mark Cream smells wonderful, actually works and is very affordable. The reviews on amazon match what we would rate this product, five out of five. Expect some results at three weeks and dramatic results at the three month mark. We suggest applying this cream as recommended by the manufactured, twice daily. The Stretch Mark Cream is very effective on all parts of the body including breasts.
