Stretch Marks B Gone…Please

by Guest Contributor

I love my children more than anything in the world. Many of us give up so much when we have children. Dinners out, sleep, nice clothes, and some of us sacrifice our body. At least that’s how I feel sometimes when I stare at that bikini I long to wear every year and can’t because of the stretch marks my children left.

I try to look my best and I know there is surgery that can put our bodies back to the way they were before children, well almost. I don’t know about you but no way am I brave enough to go under the knife and have skin pulled and tucked. I’ve tried many “miracle creams” and to my dissatisfaction, none worked their miracle.

I was sent Apothoderm  Stretch Mark Cream to try and truthfully I was very skeptical, but thought I would give it a shot.
It says:

Clinically proven to reinforce the skin’s fundamental support structures and helps to visibly repair existing stretch marks. A fast absorbing lotion formulated with patented SmartPeptide technology, it helps build collagen while reducing the appearance of red and silver stretch marks as it smoothes the skin…………visible improvements in as little as 14 days and more than 90% saw overall improvement after twelve weeks of continued use.

I’ve been using it for three weeks faithfully, following directions and I’m impressed, I actually see a difference. I’m very surprised because I know old stretch marks seem to be the most difficult and these babies are 26 years old! I will continue to use this product for the next nine weeks and I feel confident that I will be in my bikini come this summer and yes I will be taking a picture!!

I would use this product on my belly and sides and back of my legs. Many stretch marks from my first who was 9.2 pounds and am about to have my 2nd any day now :)


2 Kara December 5, 2011 at 9:35 am

I would use this on my lower belly and butt/thighs. Luckily I don’t get bad stretch marks, but my twins made the few I had longer and wider.


3 Taryn December 5, 2011 at 10:04 am

Belly and hips!!! Gotta love being mommy!! =)


4 Angela Maa s December 5, 2011 at 10:11 am

I definitely need it to work in the belly area. :)


5 Kristie December 5, 2011 at 10:25 am

I could use this on my belly, hips and thighs! Thank you for the chance to win! :-)


6 Darla December 5, 2011 at 10:27 am

I definitely need this for my old stretch marks from the birth of my firstborn 27 years ago!


7 Paula December 5, 2011 at 11:06 am

Sounds pretty close to a miracle in a bottle :)


8 Ashley December 5, 2011 at 12:16 pm

Well, I would use it on my ahem… ladies, if you will. My skin has no stretch whatsoever and I have had stretchmarks there since I hit puberty at age 12. It would be nice to have them fade some.

I would use this on my stomach. I love that they say it works on red and silver stretch marks. Other companies just say they will get rid of the red red marks faded on their own so that just makes me iffy about other products. My red marks faded but I still have the silver ones and would definitely love to improve them.

This would be GREAT for me since I am completely DONE having kids. This body has given birth to 4 wonderful kids and I would love to get the pre-pregnancy skin back. I would totally use it on my hips and bottom as they got affected the most but I would use it anywhere I see stretch marks like my chest too :)


11 Tonya December 5, 2011 at 1:20 pm

I forgot to say what I loved about the product. I looked at the ingredients and the ones that I like to avoid are not listed! Major score!!!


12 Tiffany December 5, 2011 at 1:44 pm

I’d use it on my belly and hips.


13 StephG December 5, 2011 at 1:58 pm

I would love to see this work on my upper thighs!


14 Susan S. December 5, 2011 at 3:51 pm

My belly has been the biggest problem area since kiddo #2. I would love to give this a try!


15 sarah December 5, 2011 at 11:19 pm

I would love to get rid of the “mommy” tummy :) Thanks for the opportunity!


16 Shilah December 5, 2011 at 11:58 pm

I would love to try using this on my thighs & hips. No bathing suit can cover those stretch marks!


17 Trista Zollars December 6, 2011 at 2:04 am

My! I hope it helps with the belly region and my thighs… :) Need to get in tip top shape for summer and this would be wonderful to help :)


18 Angela E. December 6, 2011 at 12:31 pm

Willing to try.

Thighs most definitely!


20 June December 6, 2011 at 5:58 pm

I’ve heard this stuff works great!


21 Amy Brewer December 6, 2011 at 8:00 pm

My belly, thighs and arms are my biggest problem areas for stretch marks. I would love to tone them down so they aren’t so noticeable. Thanks for the chance,


22 tennille December 7, 2011 at 2:44 am

Just had a baby last month-still finding all my problem areas but the thigh area seems worst hit!


23 Staci A December 7, 2011 at 11:31 pm

I’d love if it could help my belly!

Looks like some good stuff to use.

28 Don December 9, 2011 at 9:34 pm

Will keep this on hand for the wife some day soon, I hope.


29 Katie December 10, 2011 at 4:51 am

Definitely my belly, breast and upper thighs! I read a few more reviews online and everyone noticed a difference. I’m a tad surprised I’ve never heard of Apothoderm before! I really like that it works on new and old stretch marks. The price is a little steep so winning it would be a blessing!


30 Amberly Perkins December 10, 2011 at 10:58 am

I would use on my tummy and breasts. Seems like it works.


31 SANDY December 10, 2011 at 10:52 pm

36 Garrett December 12, 2011 at 9:07 am

Some one told me about this stuff, and it can be pretty pricey. Heard it work’s great.


37 Samantha C. December 12, 2011 at 6:06 pm

Definitely need help in the belly area!


38 Jenn December 14, 2011 at 5:22 pm

This stuff is amazing!! I ordered it and got it in 3days, I was 135lbs before pregnancy and got upto 209lbs, now I am 160lbs and I have a 9month old. I did some research and this one is all natural so I thought I’d give it a try. I have stretch marks on my inner thighs, my hips and chest. And let me tell ya, I saw results after 1 day of use, the fading had already started! This is truly a miracle in a bottle, I highly recommend it to anyone. I have been using it for 2 weeks now and the red and silver stretchmarks aren’t even noticeable! A little bit goes a long way, work in circles into your skin and let dry before getting dressed. Good luck ladies!


39 Alison S. December 15, 2011 at 1:21 pm

I just had our second baby 3 months ago. So yeah my tummy needs this!


40 Melissa December 15, 2011 at 10:38 pm

After 5 babies, I NEED this!! I would use it on my stomach and upper thighs.


41 Meron December 21, 2011 at 11:35 am
