From my pregnancy till now, I have confused the weighing scale many times.
I gained 17 kgs during my pregnancy and now I have managed to lose 10 kgs of the gained weight.
So I think Im a good candidate to review a stretch marks cream that I used religiously throughout my pregnancy.
Again a recommendation from a friend who claimed not to have any stretch marks. But my doctor told me its almost impossible for people to escape stretch marks. So I was prepared for it anyways.
From their site:
StretchNil is a herbal preparation which is to be used for minimization of stretch marks. It is a herbal lotion with natural ingredients that have stood the test of time. Apply liberally over stomach abdomen and especially on flanks twice a day from the 4th month of pregnancy till delivery. Rub gently till it disappears on skin.
My experience: I started using this cream from the 3rd month every day after bath. I could not see any stretch marks at all throughout my pregnancy.
Even after giving birth I could not see any mark, now that I am losing weight I am seeing small stretch marks propping up here and there.
Compared to my mother and aunts who have never ever heard of such things, my marks are very less and bearable.
Its crazy in a way but these marks are reminders of the wonderful times with my baby in my tummy so I like them in a way.
Ok coming to the cream, it works. But not to the extent that they claim.
Price: 100ml cost Rs 249, you might need 3-4 tubes for your entire pregnancy
