Family members recommended this one to me. I actually liked it and have been using it so far in this pregnancy. Skin feels soft, it’s not too greasy, it’s easy to apply and although I’m aware it’s down to genes too, I don’t have a stretch mark (at least not yet). The price can put you off but I still think it’s worth it.
Brought this due to advice on stretch mark and worry about me looking ugly and disgusting with purple mark around my belly.
First thought was how pricey they are, how long it last for to finish using it, how often I'm going to use it or how good it do the job. Pro and con kept coming to my mind but decide to go for it and try.
It was best decision I ever made...
First time I tried it, it was cold to put on, but found out if u rub it few time on palm of you hand and then rub on your belly, boobs or legs it does get warm. The buttercream feel so smooth spreading across, the smell is powerful lovely and it softy my body all day. It also help some day when I itch it calm the soreness down. I find bonding with partner easily too. Share responsible and allow him to bond /touch/rub/support with him using the cream.
I use it once or twice a day however I do sometime forget to put them on some day is my down fall
I am 39 weeks, still pregnant and I have no stretch mark
It a 5* and all the cream I tried out this one is the best, good value for what you use and how many time you can get it out of the tub.
Smells AMAZING, smooth, non greasy, value for money

I absolutely love this product, I used it throughout my pregnancy and feel it really maintained the elasticity in my skin! It smells amazing and feels lovely and smooth. Postpartum, I neglected taking care of my skin and did develop stretch marks.. I started using Palmers again and it has really reduced the appearance, they aren’t as “red and angry” and improved the elasticity on my new “mum tum”! Keeps my skin lovely and moisturised so I will continue using this!
The product itself is brilliant, massages in very well, smells beautiful and doesn’t leave you feeling greasy like some creams. The only downside is the packaging, if you leave it a couple days the end of the dispenser drys out meaning it doesn’t pump and freely and you get a solid piece of the cream come out
I love this stuff! I used this from the moment I found out I was pregnant and it kept my skin soft and almost completely stretch mark free! It smells amazing, it’s lovely and thick and it rubs in easily without leaving you feeling sticky or slimy.
Have used this cream since the beginning of my 2nd pregnancy, I am now 24 weeks and haven't gained any extra stretch marks this time around. By this stage in my first pregnancy I has most of my stretch Mark's so feel this cream has definitely helped. The smell is amazing and I can smell it for hours after putting it on. The texture is quite greasy but leaves skin feeling great.
Overall this product has a massive thumbs up from me! I love it.
I’m 28 weeks and have used this everyday throughout my pregnancy.
I think it’s helped my skin to stretch and helped with itchiness.
It’s a really good general body moisturiser so I use it in places where I know I won’t get stretch marks but could do with some serious hydration.
Downsides are the price, much cheaper body moisturisers out there, and it’s quite thick and feels greasy for a while. I actually think this could be a good thing because you know it’s lasting and giving your skin a lot of nourishment.
The smell is neutral, definitely not perfumed but not unpleasant.
I bought the Palmer's Massage Lotion For Stretch Marks pretty much as soon as I found out I was pregnant. I've used Palmer's in the past and have always rated their products for how good they are on my dry skin. This lotion smells amazing, massages into my skin really easily and feels great. The pump is easy to use and helps to avoid wasting product. The price is really affordable and lasts ages.
I've had no stretch marks and though I can't put it down 100% to this product this lotion has definitely helped to keep my skin supple and hydrated.
I love this cream because I love the smell of cocoa butter, unfortunately it can be a bit costly because it is quite thick so I feel like I may be use too much because its thickness doesn't spread well. However I do like the thickness, I feel it moisturises very well compared to some runnier versions
I enjoy the pump on this bottle making it easy to dispense. I keep it on my bedside table and apply before bed. It’s extremely moisturising without being greasy. Easy to apply, leaving the skin feeling smooth. It’s great for tummy massage and partner will use it on my tummy too, to help with bonding with baby.
I do love the palmers cocoa butter range, however I would recommend the palmers cocoa cream that comes in a tub thats quite hard and oily for stretch marks. This cream didnt really seem to work as well.
Pump is very easy and simple to use and handy, smell of the cream was amazing.
i found this didnt remove stretch marks

I started using this cream from early pregnancy - i found when i did get stretch marks the cream did no get rid of these - unfortunate which is a shame as the cream is lovely and not greasy like many other products just isn't doing the job.
I brought this at this at the airport as I couldn't bring my creams from home being over 100ml. I was NOT disappointed! The consistency is much thicker than I imagined. My skin felt SO hydrated and smooth for the whole trip. A huge bonus is that it smells so good too. I would recommend this to anyone and especially because it is so reasonable. 10/10!
I was recommended this product from a few moms, being the first time I was pregnant I gave it a shot. The cream is sticky and it takes quite a while to dry on your skin, I found it took about 30/45 mins to dry on my belly. It does have a very lovely smell. For what it’s meant to do I don’t think it made a big difference on preventing stretch marks, I resorted to other products that worked better.
I got this as a sample in a pregnancy pack and thought I would try it. I found it helped my skin so ended up purchasing and using throughout my pregnancy and I still use it 7 months on.
It smells delicious and I felt my skin wasn't dry at all because of this.
I purchased the bottle with the pump as I found this easier that having to squeeze it out with hands covered in cream. Really recommend coco butter
I love the smell of this cream and still use it now after I gave birth. I used this cream from about 12 weeks and did keep my skin lovely and soft but I did develop stretch marks. The cream didn’t stop me from developing them but it did keep my skin hydrated and soft. Will keep using in the hope that it will reduce the redness as time goes on.
Smells lovely, pump means it is easy to dispense and feels nice on the skin.
A tad expensive and can take a long time to absorb into skin.

This is a lovely cream that rubs on nicely to the skin and smells nice. I love having the pump as it means you can dispense easily but the product is safe from spilling or other small hands! The cream itself feels very nice on the skin when rubbed but does sit quite heavily on the skin and takes a while to be absorbed which when using before bed can be a pain. That said, I am nearly 8 months and have no stretch marks yet!
Love this cream! Smells great rubs in easily and seems to be working for me, I use it daily over my bump, boobs and thighs and it has helped reduce a couple of pre pregancy stretch marks I already had.
The key is use use a little bit at a time and not loads at once and soaks in really well.
Would recommend to everyone.
This smells heavenly. It is absolutely divine, and everytime I used it it made me feel closer to my baby and i'd talk to it as I massaged the cream in. Its rich and lovely, but does leave a slightly greasy feel on my stomach.
Not greasy, lovely fragrance, soaks in to the skin really well

I love using this Cocoa butter (twice a day) as it soaks in to my skin really well and isn’t greasy. It also has a lovely fragrance and a small bit goes a long way. I definitely recommend this product!!
