I didnt get any, but I have some loose skin from previous weight loss which probably helped and I used palmers stretch mark lotion from the beginning, I already have stretch marks anyway…sigh.

I used dermelastic serum on my pregnant belly after every shower and never got a stretch mark to speak of! Also works great on scars or just regular dry skin. You only need a few drops at a time, absorbs in easily.

At 40 weeks. Dear Daughter was born at 42 weeks and in those 2 weeks I went fro my having no stretch marks to ones all over my stomach, butt, and thighs. 

I was born prematurely and my mom used to say that she got no stretch marks due to Palmer’s Cocoa Butter cream. I went through three tubs of stretch mark cream and they didn’t do me any good. Pretty sure mom popping me outta 34 weeks was her beauty secret, haha. 

If it’s any consolation I’m 6 months PP and they’re barely noticeable. So if you get them it’s no big deal.

My skin is very sensitive and dermelastic serum is the only gentle stretch mark remover I’ve ever tried.It’s very effective and really suitable for sensitive skin. I apply dermelastic serum twice a day and the result is really good. My stretch mark got lighter in just a month of using this serum! So satisfied!

I bought Dermalmd Stretch Mark Serum to use during my pregnancy and I’m only 4 months along so haven’t noticed any stretch marks. I started using it early to prevent any marks and so far it’s been great. The serum has a nice scent and goes on smooth.

I’ve heard that the older you are the less likely you will get stretch marks, is there any truth to that??

 Would love to know if you ladies that never got marks were over 30. 🙂

Stretch marks don’t worry me as they fade. It’s the loose skin I’m afraid of

I have used other stretch mark creams and none have been as effective as Dermalmd stretch mark serum by dermalmd. It leaves my skin feeling smooth and my stretch marks were beginning to fade within a weeks time. It does not leave your skin greasy as other stretch mark products do and has a very mild scent. I would certainly recommend this serum to anyone looking to lessen the appearance of their stretch marks.

I didn’t get any…and I’d say the creams and lotions are a waste of money. I didn’t use any of them…just regular old lotion like I normally would. I would say I’m predisposed to getting stretch marks since I have some from puberty plus my mom got a lot during her pregnancy. She told me it was inevitable that I’d get a bunch and every week I didn’t get them she’d say just wait they’ll show up overnight. Nope. I think the key is really just keeping weight gain slow and steady. Also, I went almost 2 weeks overdue, so an early delivery wasn’t a factor either.
