Stretch Marks

Anyone have any products they've tried that have helped to lighten stretch marks? I know they're never going to disappear, but I'm hoping to find something that will make them less noticeable!

    I make a body scrub with coconut oil, vitamin E oil and sugar (I also add a few drops of lavender essential oils to add scent). My SIL had really dark stretch marks and after only a month of using it, it has already lightened them.

  • I made a body scrub with coffee, sugar and olive oil after I had DS1. My stretch marks all but disappeared. I will definitely be using it again!

    I used equal parts sugar and coffee grounds(unused) and then mixed with olive oil until I got a consistency that I liked. The recipe I followed only called for a small amount of oil, but it was too coarse and didn't spread well for me.

    I just made this weekly and kept it in Tupperware container in the shower.
