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.

My sons have eczema. I have tried several products with no results. I happened to have some of this lotion left over from my pregnancy and decided to use it on my boys. It's amazing. It makes a huge difference on their legs. I keep this stocked in my house and use it on them day and night.

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

      I bought this product for my daughter who is having her first baby in August. She used it twice daily until she started seeing a rash. It was very bad. It lasted 2-4 days. She didn't know she had sensitive skin until using this product. Would not recommend buying this online until you've had a chance to try it.

        So far this product has been working wonders for my skin, I drench my body with this stuff from top of breasts to my buttox morning and night, I love how it applies easily and although one complaint that I see often is that its greasy, in my opinion the greasiness actually gives me confidence, because I know its working hard to fight off those stretch marks. One other good thing is that it doesn't rub off easily.

            This product actually made my itchy pregnancy skin worse! It was awful- I was going out of my mind uncomfortable! It caused horrible itching, so much so that I thought I was having an allergic reaction. As soon as I stopped using this product, my skin got 100% better. Do not use this if you have sensitive skin- find a different belly cream instead!

                I already have stretch marks from my previous pregnancy, so I can't comment on how effective it's on preventing stretch marks. I have dry skin before my pregnancy and even drier skin during. This definitely moisturizes my skin and stopped the itching. It's very thick, so it's hard to apply. Warming it between my palms helps a little. I don't like sweet scents, and this smells like candy. Wish it comes unscented.

                    To start with I have sensitive skin, but having used the Palmer's massage lotion for stretch marks and loving it, I thought I would give the tummy butter a try. I used it twice and developed a really bad rash on my belly and breasts...having foolishly thrown the receipt away, now I'm stuck with 2 of these tubs and a rash. Great.

                    I purchased Palmer's Tummy Butter a while ago when my doctor told me I was pregnant with twins. Right now I am 32 weeks and I don't see new stretch marks. I had some stretch marks from my teen age years but there are NO new ones and I gained around 35 pounds! I use it once to twice every day and even though it takes a long time to be absorbed, it is worth every minute of it.

                      I tried a sample of this and while I did like it, I found it to be a little too greasy. I love all of Palmer's products, but my favorite is the cocoa butter in a big tub - I highly recommend that for pregnancy. I do not have any stretch marks and swear by Palmer's cocoa butter.
                      I also highly recommend Bio-Oil or Palmer's Skin Therapy Oil.
