Default stretch marks?

I put on 3stone while pregnant and now have some horrible marks. Has anyone used anything that seems to work/help to at least fade them?

its expensive, but it does work if you use it three times a day as recommended.

Bio Oil, you'll get it in Boots, really helps fade them if used regularly

Try vitamin E oil. Its very similar to Bio Oil (just less smelly stuff) and it only costs $4 a bottle at Walmart (near supplements). It works wonders for my stretch marks and its cheap. Its also great for razor burn and scars.

I lost 50 lbs back in 2010 and was successful in fading my stretch marks with bio oil. I gained 60 lbs while pregnant in 2011 and got new purple ones. I've faded them all already with bio oil again
