Just wondering what people are using to try to minimise the appearance of stretch marks?
I got Palmers Cocoa butter today but I find the smell a bit overpowering, it making me feel a bit sick!! I have bio oil too but just looking for more suggestions/recommendations.

Some people swear by the MamaMio Strech cream.
I've been using E45 cream and the Cussons Bump cream from Boots. I got my first stretch mark this week
Poppyseed, I think I am going to try the bio oil...seems to be the most trusted!! Also think I will pick up a copy 'what to expect when you're expecting' ....have heard great things about it!! I wonder when the stretch marks will appear!
Ohm - I have what to expect and it's great! Would highly recommend it for us first timers!
I have some bio oil somewhere, will have to dig it out because the Palmers is too strong smelling for me.
Thanks Dilin - will have a look out for the mamamio stuff! Thanks
Oh poppyseed, going to buy it tomorrow..have a list !!
I'm choosing to ignore that for the time being lol
I'm just using what you are Palmers Cocoa butter all over after shower and the I put bio oil on my bump before bed. I'm a first tmer as well so not talking from experience but both of these products have been recommended from friends who have used them. I've also been told that stretch marks are hereditary so regardl;ess of what creams you use if your mum got them you most likely will
Thanks Charlibear! I got some stretch marks during puberty so I know I'm predisposed to them! I just want to try to minimise them!
Do you not find the smell of the cocoa butter very overpowering? It's sooooo sweet
I'm very lucky only have stretch marks from puberty, I've had two kids n blessed with none , I used coco butter , n baby oil , but my mam never had any and she had 7 kids , so maybe I got her jeans , but both my sisters had one child n both got stretch marks so who knows ,
