Mustela Stretch Marks Intensive Action

Monday, November 25th, 2013

erase3Unfortunately, you don’t have to be pregnant to get stretch marks. We tried Mustela’s Stretch Marks Intensive Action Cream, which retails at about $42. Though more expensive than similar products at stores like Target and Ulta, it also comes up with studies to back up their claims. 96% of expectant mothers who used Stretch Marks Intensive Action did not develop stretch marks. The formula contains nourishing oils, peptides, alpha hydroxy acid, to name just a few of the many helpful ingredients it contains. So this goes further than simply moisturizing the skin.

Mustela Stretch Marks Double Action

Monday, July 22nd, 2013

It works by supporting the elasticity of the skin, moisturizing, and enhances skin renewal. As the label suggests, we didn’t see a huge improvement on older marks but we liked the consistency and thought its biggest advantage would be in preventing stretch marks. Since this formula is made with all natural ingredients, the bland scent of this product isn’t typical of baby products you’re used to.

Tip: Worried about stretch marks? There’s no way to completely avoid them after extreme weight fluctuations, so the best beauty tip is to avoid excessive weight gain by eating well and exercising.
