My weight has fluctuated most of my adult life which has left me with stretch marks on my abdomen, breasts, and upper arms. Over the years I have learned to accept them but some of them are still SUPER painful and a friend of mine suggested maybe trying a stretch mark cream to help them heal.
I turned to Belli Beauty because after trying their Anti-Blemish Facial Wash I was very impressed and wanted to try some of their other products.
What drew me to this product is that it is designed to help decrease the appearance stretch marks of any age or any cause. I have noticed many other stretch mark products are designed for pregnancy and are marketed for preventing stretch marks and now decreasing the appearance of existing stretch marks. It contains 2 scientifically researched ingredients, the first is Darutoside which is a plant extract that soothes skin, decreases inflammation, restores collagen and improves skin elasticity. The second is Registril repairs damage to the skin and has been scientifically proven to improve the appearance and texture of stretch marks. This cream also contains Avocado Oil which moisturizes the skin as well as Ginseng which helps even out skin tone. You can see a full list of ingredients below:
Deionized Water, Isopropyl Palmitate, Cetearyl Alcohol (and) Ceteareth-20, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glycerine, Cetyl Hydroxyethylcellulose (and) Rutin (and) Palmitoyl Oligopeptide (and) Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3 (and) Phaseolus Lunatus (Green Bean) Seed Extract (and) Butylene Glycol (and) Water – (aka Regestril), Sodium PCA, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E Acetate), Darutoside, Cyclomethicone, Glyceryl Stearate (and) PEG-100 Stearate, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Caffeine, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Acanthopanax Senticosus (Ginseng/Eleutherol) Root Extract, Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Peel Oil, Retinyl Palmitate, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, and Glycereth-2 Cocoate.
It is suggested to apply this cream twice daily for 4 weeks and then once daily after that. I did not attach any before and after pictures because while my stretch marks are subtle(its hard to even photograph them) they often bother me because they get sore. I have been using this cream for 2 weeks now and I haven’t noticed a huge change in appearance but my stretch marks do seem to not get as irritated and raised as they did before. I plan to continue using this cream because I am happy with the results so far.
