Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars
I bought this item on April 29th and today already is June 29th. I use it every nigh after shower.There are very few stretch marks on the lower back of the waist, which I think were overlooked when applying. Since this was my first pregnancy, I had been told everything about stretch marks by older family members. They say it is also possible that stretch marks will appear after the baby is born. I'm not sure if this theory works for me as well, but for now, I think it's helped that I don't have a lot of stretch marks.
During my pregnancy, they discontinued the old Stretch Mark Minimizer. I knew people had issues with the old one since it could feel like it kind of sat on the skin and peeled when you applied more on top. I did not have that issue when I applied it on my wet skin after tonic oil first. I really wanted to like the new one, but it is not as moisturizing, and after I swapped out to the new one, I started getting stretch marks :(. I am pretty sure it is not due to my belly stretching out, since the majority of stretch marks came postpartum, and during the peak of dry winter when I used the old version, my belly always felt super supple and moisturized despite my belly expanding rapidly. I wish they still carried the old one as well :(

I love clarins, but similar to other reviews, the pump broke and I tried everything to fix it. So I had to cut the container open and scoop it out.

Very disappointed -- the pump stopped working after using the cream only once. The bottle is full but I cannot use it!

While I cannot say if it helps to repair stretch marks, I have not developed any stretch marks 7 months into my pregnancy while using it. IF YOU'RE HAVING PUMP ISSUES - firstly, store the product cap down so the product is closest to the pump. If it still has trouble pumping, it is due to too much air in the container. SQUEEZE the tube as you pump, and the product will come out while also releasing some of the excess air. Hope this helps!

Really helps reducing the appearance of stretch marks

The product seems to work, but it is very difficult to get the lotion out after you use it a few times. I'm not sure why they can't just make it a normal lotion bottle with the pump at the top instead of the bottom. For the price, it shouldn't take me 5 minutes to get the lotion out.

The texture of this is divine! I layer it with the body serum and I literally feel like Beyoncé in the summertime. It's January!

I'm really disappointed that the product I received was dated in January 2020!! Only six to seven months left before it expires…

I've been using this lotion after my shower every day and so far have not seen any stretch marks. It keeps your skin soft and elastic. Highly recommend especially for winter pregnancies!
UliB from Massachusetts
This lotion absorbs superbly and the scent is pleasant but not overpowering. The pump is great because it doesn't let out to much at once and is air tight. It's pricey, but well worth it because you will use it all up!!

I used it after childbirth, and I noticed good changes with my stretch marks. They became smaller and lighter shade
carol m from michigan
this is a wonderful product. used in my first pregnancy, no streches at all. using in my second pregnancy. but I'm not giving 5 stars now only because the packaging has changed. the older version was better. the pump in this one is not very functional and in the end, there's a lot of cream (I even cut the package to get it all). but the cream works great!

I can't comment on how the lotion works, but it is my second time using it and the pump dispenser has stopped working. This is super frustrating.

This lotion makes my skin feel AMAZING! I have noticed my stretch marks have gotten much less apparent and I am in love with how my skin feels everywhere I use this.
I only gave it 4 stars because the bottle is absolutely obnoxious. I break the top open right away now and put it in a jar for use. I have too much pain in my hands to have to squeeze the tube against the bathroom sink while trying to pump the lotion out when I use it everyday. Please change the packaging. It would be 100 stars out of 5 with different packaging!

I had deep stretch marks on my legs that really bothered me. I noticed result quickly, the dark purple faded and the marks became smaller. A must buy!

My skin looks a million times better. It's tighter, much lighter and even the texture is smoother!! I'm so happy I got this!

THERE WAS ABSOLUTELY NO NEED TO CHANGE THE OLD/ ORIGINAL STRECH MARK CREAM WHICH WAS PERFECT!!! This new one in just more diluted and lesser quantity plus half of the content gets stuck in this new pump tube. I will not recommend this new version. I have used clarins for over 30 years now.

I have been using the cream for about 2 weeks and I love the consistency. Light weight, quickly absorbs, and odor free.

What I love most of this moisturizer is that it does not feel as if you have a thick layer on your skin. On the contrary, it is light, and it feels like a hug on the skin. I love it.

I'm really liking this thus far. I've almost completed my 1st tube. Not sure if I see a difference in my stretch marks...but my skin in noticeably softer. I have a 2nd tube I'll try.

Granted, I am still pregnant so I don't know the full results of using this, but the experience itself is a pleasure. Nice opportunity to do a little self-massage, and the lotion is light in texture and aroma.

Great smell, great consistency and seems to work mildly on stretch marks
Vickie2020 from undisclosed
Really hate to pump for over dozen times to get the amount of cream I need. It's so inconvenient!!! Hate the current tube packaging. It would be much easier if it comes in a jar. Just think about how much cream we need to put on everyday and how many times we need to push down the teeny tiny pump head. You do the math.

I'm beyond my childbearing years. I use this for stretch marks on my upper arms and upper thighs. I feel like it's working? I used it all summer and I can still see the stretch marks but they're lighter in color. Also, I have big time sensory issues and most scents of lotions, body oils, etc. give me a headache, no matter how mild. I love the smell of this stuff. And it feels soooo good. On my second bottle and I'm not rich but it's worth the money.
