I saw a charming commercial for Merderma Stretch Mark Therapy that said it was clinically proven (science!) to lessen the appearance of stretch marks. And since having a near 11-pound baby left me with some marks on my stomach (and I had a coupon) I thought I’d give it a try. Not that pre-baby I was baring it all in a bikini but you know, a girl likes to look/feel good.
I’m too chicken to post before-and-after photos but I’ll let know how it works. I’ve only been using it for about two weeks (out of the recommended 12) and like it so far. I haven’t noticed any dramatic results yet but my skin is nicely moisturized and the scent isn’t too bad.
So, um, there’s that. It doesn’t solve any of the heart-breaking problems in the world but at least my tummy is well-moisturized.
