I was offered the chance to try the Stretch Mark and Scar Cream from Instanatural I gladly said yes. From losing, then gaining weight at the start of the year, I’d noticed that I had started to get a few stretch marks on those pestly muffin tops and a few on my stomach. They aren’t deep and engraved, but I can see the shininess and colour of them that differed, but anything to get rid of them is worth a shot right?
I applied this twice a day, morning and night. It left my skin feeling nourished and moisturised. I did find I needed to apply it in the morning a good 20 minutes before getting changed, as I thought it had a slightly sticky residue. This wasn’t a problem for me as it’s normally the time it takes for me to do my hair and makeup before getting changed, so I just applied it before I did anything else.
I didn’t notice anything significant on the few Stretch marks I have at all. I was also using this on my face at night time on a few scars that I have from bug bites from holiday (over 3 years ago, they’ve never properly healed), and I did think that it helped those slightly, albeit not a lot.
Whether the stretch marks I have was not ‘bad enough’ to see a difference, or wether you need to be using it for a long time to notice the change I don’t know. I do think this is pretty expensive (£21.95) given the results I saw, and I had used this all up within 3 and a half weeks, and the only place I was really using it was on my sides and a little on my stomach, other than a tiny dab on my face. If I had been using this on my legs, arms, boobs or was putting them all over a pregnancy belly, I think I would have finished the tub in a week.
Whilst I didn’t have a great experience with this product there is lots of good reviews on amazon, and it’s reviewed quite favourably, there is many great reviews. I’d check out the amazon reviews if you’re looking for a product like this, and see if you think you would like it.
Have you tried any Stretch Mark remedy creams? Did they work?
