Mederma Stretch Mark Therapy Review and Giveaway...

Thanks to Mederma, I was recently given the chance to try Mederma Stretch Marks Therapy.

Mederma says:
"Wear your skin proudly.™
Mederma® is proud to introduce a stretch marks product that delivers results. Results that are visible to the naked eye. New Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy is specifically formulated and clinically proven to reduce the appearance of stretch marks by reducing discoloration, improving texture and enhancing softness. 85% of women in the U.S. have stretch marks. 85%. It’s time for a stretch marks product that delivers visible-to-the-naked-eye results. It’s time for real results. It’s time for skin to win. Stretch marks will be reduced in appearance. Confidence can be restored.


Stretch marks first appear as dark or discolored lines, but tend to gradually fade to a lighter color. Stretch-marked skin can also appear rippled or puckered in texture because it loses its elasticity when it stretches. You’ll usually find stretch marks on the abdomen (especially near the belly button), breasts, upper arms, underarms, thighs (both inner and outer), hips and buttocks.

Wives' Tales
You’ve probably heard plenty of stretch mark prevention tips. When it comes to prevention, a moisturizer can’t hurt, but should not be looked at as a sure fire way to avoid stretch marks.
You have them. What now?
Though they don’t pose a health risk, stretch marks can cause their fair share of self consciousness. There are various products designed to improve the appearance of stretch marks, including lotions and creams, laser treatments, and dermabrasion. Some people even opt for a surgical procedure known as a "tummy tuck" to remove lower abdominal stretch marks.
New Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy is a cost-effective way to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, diminish discoloration and improve texture in 4 to 12 weeks.

YOU SHOULD TELL YOUR STORY. YOUR SKIN SHOULD NOT.
Some people say stretch marks and scars are badges of honor. They show what you’ve been through, what you’ve survived. Mederma® believes you should tell those stories, not your skin.
Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy is dermatologist tested, specifically formulated and clinically proven to reduce the appearance of stretch marks.It diminishes discoloration, improves texture and enhances softness in 4 to 12 weeks.
Mederma® is the #1 doctor- and pharmacist-recommended brand for scars. Mederma® is clinically proven to soften, smooth and reduce the appearance of scars. Mederma® improves the color, texture and overall appearance of old and new scars — from surgery, a burn, an injury, an accident or acne.

Mederma® is proud to offer a stretch marks therapy that delivers visible-to-the-naked-eye results.
-Reduces the appearance of stretch marks.
-Diminishes discoloration.
-Improves texture.
-Enhances softness

Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy is an advanced cream formula that combines a unique blend of ingredients: Cepalin®, Hyaluronic Acid and Centella Asiatica. In a recent clinical study, 80% of participants reported visible improvement in the overall appearance of their stretch marks after using New Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy for 12 weeks. That’s 8 out of 10 women. And that’s reason to try yet another stretch marks therapy."
What we say: Mederma Stretch Mark Therapy is pretty great:) I was super lucky to only get 2 major, permanent stretch marks after 2 pregnancies. One of which is pretty low, but stretches about 2 inches and one above the hole from a long-ago belly button piercing:) After using Mederma for a month, I can really see a difference in the appearance of them both. I'm not going to lie though...after the first week I found it hard to remember to put it on twice a day. But that only means if I would have stuck to 2-a-day the results would be even more amazing! ABCD Diaries gives Mederma Stretch Mark Therapy an A+!!
