One of my friends has recommended me to use olive oil, the extra virgin one if possible. However since there're only the big bottles of extra virgin oils in the supermarket, I just use the Ginvera olive oil which you can find in most places.
My tummy has become very moisturized after using since week 27th (I'm in my 35th week already), I still dont't feel any itchiness and no stretch marks too for now (crossed my fingers).
when do we need to start applying the cream?

"gaining [weight] slowly may reduce your chances of getting stretch marks."
seriously, i didn't get any till i totally pigged out during cny. it's the time where i gained the most weight the quickest, even my doc was quite alarmed.
hi mummies, i'm using the clarins toning oil.. is it sufficient? shall i buy the cream as well?
^^Good thing I never had a trace of stretchmarks despite of my rapid weight gain (5KG in 1mo) around October-November. For me, it has something to do with your skin's elasticity. And of course genetics plays a big role for most people as well. I have old stretchmarks but never had new ones since I got pregnant. I'll give credit to using a moisturizing body wash, Bio Oil & keeping myself hydrated all the time & I'm happy it paid off

Elancyl is not bad .. from france.. not over greasy, can wear your clothes after application.. i very kiasu one, 1mth plus preggie then i apply .. i've never been so hardworking.. lol.. though i always heard that it depends on genes, but additional help does contribute to certain extent, so in anyway, must apply diligently!
Hi, what is the name of the clarins oil n cream for stretch marks ?
hey, i'm only 5 weeks but didnt really see any stretchmarks cuz i was fat previously but managed to slim down few years back. thus i've alot of white stretchmarks.. can i ask if i still need to apply cream on it and when should i?
As long as you dont sratch when you are itchy, you shouldn't have stretch marks.
I combine the Clarins tonic oil with the nivea body lotion and so far it has been quite useful. I apply them once a day at night after bathing
Just notice mine appearing. Need another mirror to be able to see them growing from below the belly. So sad despite using clarins tonic oil n stretch mark cream. But I guess genetic n rapid weight gain are the main culprit. For my case perhaps it's genetic as both mom n sis has it.
My friend says olive oil is as good n cheap ! I'm using clarins tonic oil too.. So far no stretch marks
Hope no cos last time I'm fatter so prob mOre room to stretch!
