I have a huge amount of stretchmarks because I gained like 50lbs in 7 or 8 months when I started lifting weights, and I bought some of this shit. My friends would always laugh at me because of the pregnant woman on the cover. I used to have terrible marks all over the inside of my biceps, on the front of my shoulders, even along my forearms.They're still there and I have new ones now, but they're not as bright as they used to be (they're more brown now, they used to be pink before, and I'm dark-skinned too). I don't know if it's because of the cream or because they naturally faded. Does anyone else have this problem and have you used anything that made them less noticeable?
