    Comments about Mederma Stretch Marks Therapy:

    I'm currently 5 months pregnant with my first child. Since I've been pregnant, my breasts have exploded! I developed stretchmarks on those of course which I was okay with, but I also noticed the start of stretchmarks on my belly. I've been using Palmers cocoa butter twice a day so I'm really disappointed, but stretchmarks are more genetic than anything, so pretty much if you're going to get stretchmarks, you will get stretchmarks. I decided to buy Mederma, despite the price. I'm hoping it will prevent the stretchmarks all together and fix the ones I currently have. I've been using for about two weeks now and it has DRASTICALLY helped thee NEW stretchmarks. Literally after three days, twice a day, my brand new belly stretch mark was hardly noticeable, and the stretchmarks on my breasts are almost gone as well!! This is like a miracle cream! I loveee it. unlike cocoa butter it doesn't make you greasy all day, the smell is minor and pleasant. I agree that it is definitely worth the price. for me i have/will have standing confidence about my skin after this pregnancy, which is really important to me.

          Comments about Mederma Stretch Marks Therapy:

          I bought this product because I have stretch marks on my sides from gaining weight freshmen yr in college (I'm 22 now) My stretch marks were 4 years old at the time so they were not new. I'm AA and had dark brown stretch marks that were very obvious. I've been using it for six weeks and my stretch marks have almost disappeared on my right side and are really clearing up on my right side. So I'm pretty impressed and I was really concerned about the price in the beginning but now I'm so glad I went for it. The last thing I'd like to say is that I tried these on some stretch marks I'd had since puberty and was not successful. I'm not mad about that because it says it right on the box that it doesn't work on stretch marks that old but I decided to give it a try anyway.

            So I was pretty hesitant about buying this product because of some reviews, but hey, why not give it a try for myself right? RIGHT! I've been using this product for about two weeks now, everyday twice a day, sometimes even three times a day on my hips. I was soo surprised with the results! In only two weeks, the red/purple dark-ish marks have faded! LOVE LOVE LOVE this! If you are feeling uncomfortable because of your stretch marks, definitely worth trying this out! But be sure to use it as directed, everyday twice a day in circular motions!

            Comments about Mederma Stretch Marks Therapy:

            This is a good product if you have new stretch marks, and if you do use it as it says, I would say 2 or even 3 times a day if you can, it does lessen the appearance of them. They will never fully go away but it does make the red/purple marks gradually reduce. I'm sure there are better products out there but for the money, and a new mom, it's pretty practical and easy to use.

              Comments about Mederma Stretch Marks Therapy:

              This product really worked for my 18 year old daughter. She is Black American with a carmel skin tone. She seems to heal quickly, and without much scarring - unlike me with darker brown skin. She had protruding strech marks on her hipbones and underneath her buttocks. This product showed good improvemnent within 4 weeks, and great improvement within 8 weeks. Her strech marks are now flattend, less visible, and have lightend from a very dark color for her skin tone.

              I highly recommend this product for a tryout. I know everyone's skin heals differently, and some of us are more prone to dark marks than others. If you mark easily, give the product some time to work!

              Comments about Mederma Stretch Marks Therapy:

              First and foremost - to those who said this didn't work, one thing I noticed? NONE OF THEM USED IT AS DIRECTED. If you don't use a product as they tell you to, how do you expect it to work??? Honestly? Do you expect a miracle? if this was instant, it'd be a thousand plus dollars.

              YOU HAVE TO USE IT AS DIRECTED!!!!!!! THERE ARE THOROUGH INSTRUCTIONS INCLUDED!!!!!

              So to those who say it is a waste of money - YOU wasted your money and it is not a reflection on the product at all.

              This stuff is easy to use, you just have to commit to doing it twice a day for around 12 weeks and follow how to do it (rub it in circles over the area and make sure it is absorbed).

              YOU MUST use it for at least 12 weeks, twice a day. It works. I KNOW it works. I've used it three times now on big and small (stomach was a big area, small area on breasts and one small one on my inner thigh). I've used it for that time (12 weeks, as directed) and it removed the stretch marks on my stomach from dark ugly red/purple and raised/rough/bumpy (from your underlying skin being torn) to very close to what my skin color is now. My skin on my stomach is really soft, and the 'ridges' that the tears make aren't as pronounced.

              In areas that the stretch marks weren't so deep? Totally gone for me. At least I can't see them!!!!

              On old stretch marks? It helped make them less 'silvery' and less raised. It did diminish, but I didnt' buy it for that, so I didn't do a full treatment.

              You have to use it as directed. I had gone through three bottles of using it INCORRECTLY (i.e. once a day - forgetting to do it for days, etc.) and it did NOT work.

              I did have another area with stretch marks that I tried it only once a day over the 12 weeks and it did diminish them. But it took twice as long (which if you can't read, I can't expect you to know how that math works out either)...to get the results. But it was as expected.

              YOU ALWAYS GET A COUPON in the box, and with cash back sites and promos like 20% off that Ulta gives, or the $3.50 off of ten, you can get it for a much better deal.

              This stuff lasts depending on the area. For me, my stomach, took 1 tube per 3-4 weeks of using twice per day.

              Also, READ the rest of the instructions - it says circles. You ahve to RUB it in. Also, if you gain MORE weight, and get new stretch marks - those new ones will be better than the old ones, but...you cant' expect it to make those dissapear until they've gone through their 12 week cycle too.

              Even the document (thorough instructions) inside says that you get out of it what you put in, and it'd take longer if you don't do it as they directed.

              I'm really actually ticked at those who are like "I spent one month and it doesn't work. WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY." yeah...um, you are not so smart.

              or even TWO months - give it the full 12 weeks twice a day.

              If you miss a day or two, just realize, you are going to delay things, a few days. And also, if it takes you 13 weeks, etc. remember your body is not the exact same as mine. It depends on how bad they are, how deep, how long...

              But overall, this was SO worth the money for me. It got rid of my stretch marks from being so visible.

              And to those who say they don't remove them...hey...read the directions!!! It will NEVER repair that tear you made! It WILL decrease the incredibly horrid color, diminish the bumpiness that is associated with your torn underlying skin and also will kind of soften the 'silvery' remnants your older ones can get. You'll still have them, but wow, are they sooooo much better. You don't have to wait years for them to fade - 12 weeks.

              It took you longer than 12 weeks to gain that weight...take the time for yourself.

                  Ive only used this product for 12 days and its already starting to work on my inner thighs. Ive had stretch marks since 6th grade and just graduated high school and my boyfriend can also tell they are starting to disappear on my legs. Its taking a little longer for results on my sides but im sure after 4 weeks Ill see results. I would seriously recommend to try this product.

                  I used this product twice daily for about two months and never saw any improvement. It smells horrible and feels greasy, I always had to wash my hands after using it and wait a while before putting a shirt on. I bought two bottles hoping it would work. Never again!! Incredible waste of money.

                      I had heard good things and read excellent reviews about the product. I decided to spend the money and just buy it. I've been using it just over a week and I have a rash all over the areas I've applied the cream to (legs, tummy, and breasts). I would definitely recommend doing a patch test before using this product normally and seriously consider the cost before buying the product, because I just wasted [$].
