What I found that works wonders for me is "Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Massage Cream for Stretch Marks" it has Vitamin E, Collagen, & Elastin. It really does work. I am a big girl and have had some awful stretch marks. This helps reduce the appearance dramatically. I haven't been as good as I should but it still works. I usually try to use it once day after a bath or shower. I hope this helps.

wish there was a way to get rid of them altogether. heard that they never really "go away" but you can improve the appearance of them by using the methods other mentioned. The key is moisture to prevent additional ones.
I believe that there is some evidence that along with scars, daily massage with ANY cream/lotion will help improve the appearance of them. It is the pressure from your fingertips that encourages blood circulation...

coco butter lotions i hear work wonders. While i was tanning i used a lotion called "hemp" and it seemed to reduce the look of my stretch marks while i was using it. also AVON has a lotion that reduces them, that's what my mom uses. It comes down to just finding something that works and sticking to it, as in using it every day.
