A few weeks ago, I was sent a small jar of Dr. Max Strong Stretchmark Cream. The cream is organic and formulated to provide nutrients and vitamins to skin, promoting elasticity and collagen to prevent and reduce the appearance of these stretch marks associated with increases in size. The product is primarily geared to weightlifters, but it is safe for women and pregnant mothers as well.
I’ve been using the cream for about two weeks, and have noticed a small difference on my legs. After having my daughter, I’ve had problems with fluid retention and I regularly see stretch marks come and go on my upper thighs. Since starting with the cream, my skin has been a lot softer and I haven’t noticed any new stretch marks. The marks that are already there have also gotten a bit lighter.
There were two main drawbacks to the product. First was the scent. I’m not quite sure what the small is, but it is very pungent and not overly pleasant. The first few times smelling it actually made me nauseous. The second drawback is the fact that the directions tell you to only use it once in a 24 hour period. That alone made me a little leery of using a lot of it, so I only used a small amount. I know they say that it is safe for pregnant women, but I personally don’t think I would use it while pregnant.
Overall, the cream does seem like it would work well with constant use. It is only available in a 2oz jar. The regular price is $14, but it’s on sale for $9 (+ shipping). For more information and/or to purchase it, you can visit the Dr. Max Powers website.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
