I'm curious..how does the unrefined shea butter get rid of stretch marks? And how long does it usually take b/f you see any results?

Thanks BlackstarBlue. I checked out the video. Very informational, if what she says is true. I've aways wanted to try shea butter. Just another reason to go ahead and do so.

 I was skeptical at first but i figured it's cheaper than the creams i've tried before and like she says you can't know if it'll work for you unless u try it plus it's affordable! Well this is what i do i use epsom salt and exfoliate the stretch marks daily and then apply the lotion like 3 times a day! i make sure to massage it well before putting on clothes. It's been 2 weeks and I swear it's working!!!! I'm so happy and I can't wait to see them all go away oh btw i've had the stretch marks for 10 years so believe me this works! try it and i hope it works for you too...Oh add some pure vitamin E in the mixture too all that helps alot! Good luck
 
 
 
I've been using this also, unrefined shea butter and olive oil. It's only been a week, so I don't know what will happen. But my skin feels crazy soft. I've just been putting the shea butter on my face, and wow. Gotta try to vitamin E thoughLamp

I've been using scrub gloves with apricot scrub in the shower...like til my skin turns red-ish and then when i get out, I use a mixture of unrefined shea butter and safflower oil (HIGH in vit E) allll over. I've been doing this for two months, and I've seen a definite improvement. Only thing is the the apricot scrub gets caught in the gloves and under my nails, so I'm tryin to find some other bath item that's pretty rough itself  so I can nix the apricot scrub.

I also heard good reviews of Dermaroller...but I'm not brave enough to try it personally lmao!

i had them after being pregnant for 2x in 2 yrs. i use galvanic spa to tighten my skin and DRASTICALLY reduce the appearance of the stretch marks. PM me for details and ordering. my aunt is a rep for this product and uses me for demos all the time. so i get it done freeWink.  i think the general info page is spabeautyathome.com. it's not a lot of "us" on the page, but it works!

Stretchmarks dont we all hate them? Well Im obsessed with at least lightening them up so just ordered this product I saw on Oprah. It is called Cosmetyn. I did a little researching I havent seen any complaints on the BBB, and most reviews have been good. I should receive it in a few days, and i will keep everyone posted!

yeah ive heard about cosmetyn...theres something called celltrixa i heard that works FABULOUS too

cutie- GURL ARE YOU CRAZY!!!!thats TOO high of a concentration for your skin it will burn you and leave scars....5j0 is really the highest you should go...have you odne peels before???if not start real low because your skin may no be able to tolerate it

cinnamon704 ...theres no secret to the shea...the only way to diminish the appearance of them is by hydrating them...my friend applied shea butter and used a heat pack and saran wrap and it doubled her resultsin a shorter time period
