    I have a stretch mark that's pretty deep into the skin, and less than 1 inch long, but it's red, and I was wondering if that was normal. I'm pretty sure it happened recently, and I was talking to my broly friend at the gym and he said he's never heard of red stretch marks. Any ideas?

    I've been on Palmer's cocoa + vit e (also for stretch marks and has a pregnant woman drawing on the bottle) for about 5 months now. my stretch marks are still visible but they aren't near as bad as they were. now if that's due to time or the formula :dunno:

    Stretch marks ftl. I have noticed tanning has helped reduce the visibility of them.

    Being fat and lazy = ftl
    Being fat and lazy with strech marks = ftmfl

    Pretty expensive but it worked very, very well for me.

    $32.99 for a 50 g. tube.

    Don't expect instant results, but apply it 2-4 times daily and within 2 months you'll probably get decent results.

    Yes, but have realistic expectations, the marks will never "vanish". However, after 2 months application mine were much, much less visible.

    Did it only reduce the redness from the stretch marks or did it help overall?
    I realize I'm stuck with mine for life but I hate them greatly. :hs:

    Time does that on its own though.

    Mine were red for over a year. After two months of use they had practically completely faded. Trust me, i'm not an idiot, i wouldn't be praising this item if i didn't feel it worked. Try it.
