Have you ever wondered what the most hated skin problem could be? I have. I mean, I don’t spend hours pondering over it if that’s what you’re thinking, but I do have an idea of what it could be. And I’m definitely on to something here.
Oh stretch marks, those lovely little things that can just suddenly appear all over our bodies with no prior warning or intention of ever leaving again. Don’t you just love them? No? Well nor do others.
I’m yet to meet any one person that doesn’t mind them or isn’t bothered by them. Everyone, even men, aren’t that keen. And I can completely see why. They’re something we all have, well most of us do, and they aren’t all that pleasant looking. They can be pretty painful at times from what I hear and some more severe than others.
Although I know it isn’t all that possible to be rid of them forever, I’ve hear that giving certain lotions and potions a go can really help.
I was always so skeptical of this at first. Well with something that seems so permanent, it’s just hard not to be. But after hearing good things about a certain stretch mark remedy, I’ve decided it’s high time I gave it a go.
Skinception has long been known for products that work. Products that are specifically developed to target the skins problem areas and anti-ageing in particular. So, with such solid science behind what they do, not to mention a trail of rave reviews, I knew I’d be silly not to give them a try.
So What Can Skinception do for Stretch Marks?
I’m sure the thing you’ll care about the most is the same thing that pretty much hooked me. With their opening statement saying ‘Fade Your Stretch Marks In Time For Summer By Up to 72.5%’ I have high hopes. to me 72.5% seems a lot. It may not make them invisible, but that’s pretty close in my eyes.
Skinception know that women particularly suffer with stretch marks in the same old ares. Stomach, breasts, thighs and buttocks are of course some of the most common areas (thank you childbirth), but they also claim that it works wherever you use it, not just in those areas. This is particularly promising to me, because I also have a couple across my lower back and I think they’re the ones I’m most conscious of.
But Why is it the One?
Like many other Skinception products, the real science looks at regeneration for our bodies. The Intensive Stretch Mark Therapy was designed to stimulate the production of both collagen and elastin naturally, which we all know gives our skin life!
Within two months, the therapy aims to fade the angry red and purple discolouration that comes with stretch marks and switch it for a more natural complexion. It also looks to smooth out the grooves and to give the skin overall resilience and vibrancy!
Hearing this alone definitely sounds promising. Although I will admit that most of my stretch marks are a fairer colour than they could be, they are still quite pronounced. I feel like I need a little magic wand that will just fade them away and it seems that Skinception’s Intensive Stretch Mark Therapy could be it!
What’s the Secret?
There isn’t one as such, but there is a key ingredient: Regestril. Regestril is an active ingredient that does all the hard work. During their trials, it saw the 72.5% improvement in the depth of stretch marks. For the length, the second active ingredient Darutoside is used. After four weeks, this stuff saw a reduction in the length of stretch marks by 52%.
With all this solid data, you could say I’m excited. And, like with the rest of Skinceptions great line of beauty products, they also offer a 90 day money back guarantee if you’re not happy with the results. Now that’s saying something in their confidence, isn’t it!
So How Did it Go?
Before I got to reporting on my results, I wanted to make sure that I’d given it enough time to really get to work. I know that I’ve mentioned two milestones here, both 4 weeks and two months, so I’ve started this after using it for 6 weeks, just to be fair.
I use it daily, before I go to bed. Just to that you can compare the results fairly, I’ve been using a small amount on my stomach and lower back and then probably double the amount on my thighs as the stretch marks are larger, deeper and longer on my legs.
After around 3-4 weeks I started to notice a significant difference. Staying true to it’s word, the Skinception Intensive Stretch Mark Therapy did target the colouration, depth and length of my stretch marks. At this stage they definitely looked less angry, even though I hadn’t thought they were before. The ones on my lower back had definitely started to blend better with the rest of my skin and the same is starting to happen with my stomach.
On my thighs, the marks are less deep and seem to be shrinking in length which I just did not know was possible. I definitely have some great expectations for the next few weeks to see how I progress, but for now, I’m happy.
And the Overall Verdict?
I can’t fault it. I didn’t think it would be this possible to make a difference to my stretch marks, but then again, seeing as Skinception’s Intensive Stretch Mark Therapy isn’t just a standard product, I should have known better.
I’m just about to buy myself another jar and can definitely see it becoming a regular purchase. Especially as my family starts to grow – Skinception’s Intensive Stretch Mark Therapy will be in my pregnancy beauty bag for sure!
