I'm now 8 months pregnant, and I've been using this since I was 4 months. This is my second pregnancy--I really wish I had known about this 10 years ago. With my first child I developed stretch marks. I wasn't excessively large but I did gain 40 lbs. Fortunately, those stretch marks were located on my lower abdomen so bikinis were still realistic for me. With this pregnancy, my stomach is much larger, but my weight gain has been modest. Since using this cream, Ive noticed a few things--1.my skin is very soft and smooth, 2.the old stretch marks feel much more smooth and its not easily felt on my skin, 3.there are NO new stretch marks. I use it everywhere too--breasts, buttocks, thighs and belly. I feel satisfied to say that so far this cream has allowed me to avoid having any new stretch marks. As everyone has mentioned, it is very greasy and heavy; it sometimes makes me hot and sweaty. But still well worth it. And I use it morning and night, lathering as much as possible on my stomach each time I apply it.

I am now down to my last full jar and I will be buying 2 more, to get me through the last few months and for post pregnancy--just in case.

All in all, I think this product is highly effective. I didnt give it 5 stars only because it would have been nice to have seen the old stretch marks fade and lighten more, which didnt happen. Otherwise, Im very pleased. For the price along with some multi-daily use and diligence, its well worth it!

I'd heard this product was a great stable for pregnant moms, but I really was very disappointed. It's quite greasy, which I wouldn't mind except it makes my skin break out all around and under my breasts. I even started getting a few pimples on my belly! I do have mildly oily, sensitive skin, but have never broken out other than on my face. This did nothing to prevent stretch marks, which I didn't really expect it to. It did help with the dryness, but the heavy amount of mineral oil in this (it's the second ingredient) irritated my skin too much.

    Comments about Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Tummy Butter for Stretch Marks, 4.4 oz:

    For this product to have a great effect on your stretch marks you have to use it BEFORE you already have the strech marks, not after. This product prevents, not takes away. It worked perfectly for me, not one stretch mark I used before I started showing to moisturize my skin. Another thing I did was drink water by the litters. WORKS PERFECT!

      Comments about Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Tummy Butter for Stretch Marks, 4.4 oz:

      I cannot think of anything not great about this product unless one has an aversion to the smell of cocoa butter. It is greasy, but to me that makes me feel it is 'working.'

      I would ABSOLUTELY recommend this to a friend, or everyone for that matter. I have absolutely NO stretch marks after my first pregrancy...and I had to gain [and even afterwards LOST] 55lbs! So be sure to use during AND after pregnancy, minimum 2x a day; particularly in areas prone to stretch marks [breasts, inner and outer thighs, and of course, tummy!!!]

            I'm about halfway through my pregnancy with twins and my bump started growing early-on in addition to having dry skin, so I use this stuff religiously. The smell isn't so bad and sometimes you have to rub the butter in your hand to smooth it before rubbing it on your skin, but it does the job. Some of my stretch marks from before my pregnancy are diminishing too. I'm on my 2nd jar and will probably go through several more. Since it's pretty intense I use it at night after I shower, and then I wake up with a moisturized belly. Works great on ta-tas too!

            Comments about Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Tummy Butter for Stretch Marks, 4.4 oz:

            Works pretty well I think. Either this has been helping or it is my weight loss. It seems to have helped flatten my stretch marks and even skin tone out. I think if I used it more often it would probably work good, but I hate the way it feels on my skin. It's heavy and thick and oily. I only use it within a few hours before I know I'll be taking a shower. I think the heat makes it feel even grosser to me. Also the smell is pretty strong. Not bad to me it smells like cocoa, but it is a little strong. I'd rather oderless, but maybe that's just me.

            I'm pregnant and just started getting stretch marks on my tummy about 2 months ago. Haven't noticed improvement yet, but it's only been about a month of using this product. It doesn't really absorb, like you can still feel it on your skin after applying and it smells like chocolate, not at all like lavender which I was expecting from the label.

              I am pregnant and use the product when I get out of the shower. I have always lotioned my body after showering; however, normal lotions have not sufficed since being pregnant in the winter. The smell of this product is not overwhelming like some cocoa butter lotions and it keeps my skin feeling relieved until the next time I shower - which is daily to every couple of days.

              I was shocked to feel how hard the product is; however, the consistency helps to not take too much at one time, and once the product is on your finger tips, it rubs in easily.
