    Bio-oil?

    Advertisements
    My stretch marks seem to be getting out of control. I've wanted to try bio-oil for awhile just didn't want to put that much into if it isn't going to work.
    What the fuck is going on here????
    To truly love something, you must first give it a chance to fail. If it survives, it is going to be stronger than ever. Distance is pure proof of this, and forever we will
    love if we survive.

    Have you tried Palmers cocoa butter for stretch marks? I know a lot of people use it while they are pregnant and it helps, and I've used it to fade some of my scars and it's worked. Maybe I'll try it on my thighs and see if it fades the stretch marks, too.... hmh...

    I've used it and I think it works, it's not like isnta work or anything, but it def. has lightened mine quite a bit after only one jar of it. & I've foung that if you exfoliate in the shower (I make my own sugar scrub w/ sugar and olive oil) and then apply the bio-oil (or any other stretch mark cream) that it really does help you see improvements quicker. at least I have. You can read about using exfoliation to help reduce stretch marks online, I was skeptical but hell the sugar/olive oil is cheap so I gave it a try and it worked for me.

    I love it, It has faded mine a bit. My brother used it after having open heart surgery in 2006, less than a year later, you could hardly see his scar.

    I also like th esmell cause I can't stand the smell of cocoabutter

    I absolutely LOVE it. I gained roughly 30 pounds, fast, after I broke my hip and laid in bed for ohhh... 6 months (I was decidedly unmotivated to do rehab, lol) and I ended up with stretch marks all through my midsection. The ones in my upper lovehandle areas are gone, 100% gone. And my hips/thighs faded so much that you have to seriously be looking to find them and they were about 2-3 cms thick at least and deep purple.

    It's also good for rough elbows.
    Love God. All else can be figured out later.
