I am and have always been skeptical of stretch mark creams. All the research I've done suggests there's just nothing that can be done about them--they're tears in the dermis that won't respond to lasers (which only causes further damage to the skin) or "miracle" creams. But I hate my stretch marks and was willing to try this product when I saw it advertised. And honestly, I am surprised to see how well it's worked. I'm on week 9 of the advised 12 weeks for old stretch marks (I've had mine since I was a kid--knees, upper arms, breasts), and I started on my upper arms. I have dark skin and light/silvery marks there, and the silvery look has all but disappeared and the light marks have seemed to darken and don't stand out as much against my skin, and they feel a lot smoother. I haven't remembered to use it every day, 2x a day, but ever since I noticed this positive change about 2 weeks ago, I've been using it like clockwork.

It's expensive, but not nearly as expensive as some of the "designer" creams that come in smaller amounts for a higher price. I've started using this on other parts of my body, and parts I think may be prone to stretch marks in the future to ward them off. Folks who expect a "cure" for stretch marks should understand that they'll never go away completely, but this product has made noticeable improvements to my decades-old stretchmarks, and for that I'm very, very happy.

I was so excited at the prospect of getting rid of my stretch marks after just having a baby. Unfortunatly the night that I started to use the cream I broke out with a ton of itchy bumps! My stretch marks are so extensive that I covered my legs, stomach and sides in the cream and now, as I'm full-blown allergic to the stuff, I am itchy uncontrollably... all over. Other than that (haha) it's great. I found it was definatly a more affordable option. I just , recommend that you try it in a small area at first, wait 24 hours, before covering a large area.

      I never got the chance to find out if this product actually helps your stretch marks...it smells so bad that the two times I used it I got a headache and nausea.

          Based on other people's reviews, it's clear this product doesn't seem to work for everyone. I am an afam woman who used this only on my breasts, where I got stretch marks after pregnancy. I had almost invisible stretch marks before the pregnancy, but after nursing, I got more and they looked terrible. I used this product for at least several months, and it definitely made my skin look better. Did the marks disappear - no, but they have faded more into my skin. So I'm pleased with the results. Now I'm not sure if this would work on stronger, older, thicker stretch marks, but for what I was looking for, it definitely helped.

                Comments about Mederma Stretch Marks Therapy Advanced Cream Formula, 5.29 oz:

                I wanted to try this because I've heard Mederma products are good. I was skeptical, however, due to the price. Finally decided to take the plunge and try it. But oh the smell! Some reviews say it's pleasant but I found it anything BUT! It smells very strong and overpowering. I also find the scent lingering to my clothes, even though I wait 10-20 minutes before dressing after application.
                However, I must say I am seeing an improvement in my stretch marks and I've only been using it for 2 weeks. I will continue to use it despite the smell for a few more weeks to see if the improvement continues.

                  Comments about Mederma Stretch Marks Therapy Advanced Cream Formula, 5.29 oz:

                  I had seen all the commercials and read the reviews for Mederma skin therapy products so I decided to try it out. I applied the cream as recommended in the morning and at night without fail for almost four months. My stretch marks were on my butt, my hips, and my lower back. they weren't severe but they were visible. They were shades lighter than my skin color and they were raised only slightly above the skin. I had hoped that this product would help me, especially considering that my stretch marks weren't too terrible but it didn't. It smells nice and moisturizes the skin nicely. It also lasted all day until after a shower. My skin felt smoother but this doesn't apply to the stretch marks. After continued, recommended use, I'm still wearing my stretch marks.

                      I've been using this product for 3 weeks now and I've seen amazing results in my stretch marks. They're a lot less visible then they were before so I definitely encourage people with stretch marks to try this product.

                      I am not sure why others have stated that it smells bad...smells like perfume to me. I have to say that I am on my second tube and I do not see a difference. I have some light and some dark stretch marks due to weight gain...my skin color is light to medium brown, a honey color (I am an African American woman) and I wish the product would specify if it could be used for all skn colors, otherwise I am just waisting my money! I am going to try one more tube after this current one and see if I see anything, if not I will be writing the company and talking to them about specifying the use for different skin colors.

                      I've had stretch marks for a long time, none of them from any pregnancy.. just growing and weight gain. I'm in my early twenties and I've tried quite a few things to get rid of old and new stretch marks. I just received this product yesterday (I wasn't pleased with paying [$] but I thought I'd give it a try since anything cheap usually that I've found does not work). It feels soft, it definitely lasts all day, I am hopeful that it will diminish my stretch marks but we'll see.. and the most obnoxious thing about the product is the smell. I HATE it. It smells like a bar of soap and you can smell it all day long. It honestly nauseated me. I really hope they change the scent, otherwise I'm hopeful and like mostly everything else about it thus far.
