When applying, apply a layer of cream over each individual stretch mark, preferably by gently massaging it. Use 3 times per day for about 12 weeks, as this is the time it takes for the best results to appear. Do not expect an immediate change after a few applications, and make sure to be thorough in applying it.
“I expected an improvement for my old and new stretch marks, but it didn’t really go through. While I did only use it for eight instead of the full 12 weeks, my bottle ran out and no improvement, so I didn’t even bother buying more.. Really disappointed.”
“Good: It had a great smell, but that’s all it did. Cons: No results at all. And even when you use it, it’s like a gooey paste that takes forever to dry and you can actually feel it slide down you if you take a shower. And it’s expensive!”
“This cream worked great for me, I got my stretch marks from bodybuilding and they were really starting to get on my nerve. Used it for about 4 weeks and it worked great. Definitely give it a go if you can.”
Mama Mio Stretch Mark Cream Ratings
While not a bad product by itself, the issues such as a low 7-day money back guarantee, not that great user reviews, coupled with a high cost, makes this solution receive a bit of a lower score.
