Sometimes being a mom comes with some not-so-great perks…for example, stretch marks. Although in essence they represent the wonderful experience of giving life to your child, they just don’t seem to have the most appealing look to them. That is why, after recently giving birth to baby #3, I was thrilled to give Apothederm’s Stretch Mark Vanishing Cream a try!
When I received the Apothederm Stretch Mark Vanishing Act Cream, I was thrilled! The cream is specially formulated to visibly repair both old and new stretch marks with its patented SmartPeptide technology. It “helps build collagen while reducing the appearance of red and silver stretch marks, all while smoothing your skin’s texture.” The Stretch Mark Cream contains a blend of “four natural emollients: shea butter, cocoa butter, olive oil and highly moisturizing meadowfoam seed oil for a silky, fast-absorbing formulation. Adding power-packed action are patented heptapeptide-7, resveratrol, licorice extract, brightening amino acids, algae extract, sodium hyaluronate and other advanced ingredients that work to fade the appearance of stretch marks and nourish the skin.” (From their website)
I’ve been using the cream for 4 weeks now and have been seeing some amazing results showing up-- especially within the last week or so. I was a little skeptical of the results at first because my stretch marks are pretty bad. I have tried products such as Vitamin E oil, shea butters, and stretch mark creams in the past and never saw any significant results. With the Apothederm Strech Mark Cream, not only am I seeing my stretch marks getting lighter, my skin is getting smoother and more firm with its continual use! The areas I have been using the cream on look and feel better, showing that my skin has improved! My skin tone seems to be evening out and for the first time, I feel like I can actually feel “free” from these stretch marks which I was having a hard time considering seeing on my body for the rest of my life! I am very happy with what I have seen from this product and am even more excited to see what will happen over time and in the next few months! The Apothederm website says in addition to people seeing visible results in as little as 2 weeks, over 90% off their clinical study participants saw improvement after 12 weeks of continued use—can’t wait!
Besides their stretch mark cream, Apothederm also has a line of Anti-Aging products “to moisturize and hydrate your dry skin while reducing visible signs of aging”
