I bought this Palmer's Scar Serum when I was two months pregnant with my son. I wanted something that I can apply on my skin that will help me lessen stretch marks. I asked the pharmacist for suggestion and she told me to try Palmer's Scar Serum. She said that it is safe for me considering that I was pregnant and also because I have a very sensitive skin. I did buy the Palmer's Scar Serum and try it for several months even after I already gave birth.
The suggested application of Palmer's Scar Serum is 3 to 4 times a day and I did that. Just few drops of it on stretch mark prone areas are enough. But since I wanted to apply on most areas of my tummy and upper legs I consumed more than that in one application. Although I can still say that Palmer's Scar Serum is economical. My first bottle lasted for almost two months.
I undertsood that products like this won't give instant effect. Of course it will take several months. However, when I finished already two bottles of it when I was already almost seven months I reckon that it is not helping at all with regards to ligthening the stretch marks. I stopped using Palmer's Scar Serum at that time and resume its use to give it another chance when I gave birth with my third bottle. I bought the fourth bottle and use it few times until I just got tired of it.
Positive Effects: Eventhough Palmer's Scar Serum did not really help me in lightening or getting rid of my stretch marks I can say that its moisturizing effect is quite good. Since it contains cocoa seed butter which has effective moisturizing substance it can give your skin smooth and silky feel. Palmer's Scar Serum also contains Vitamin E.
There are lots of reviews about scar serums or scar and stretch marks lightening products but I haven't encountered one that totally satisfy the consumers. I believe firmly that being prone to stretch marks and scars depend in a huge extent on our genes. There are people who do not need to exert any effort to get rid of them or people who do not even get them in the first place. Our skins are different and we may react to these products differently.
I still give Palmer's Scar Serum the 'benefit of the doubt'. The moisturizing effect is quite good but as to my stretch marks, it did not help at all. I just may not be so lucky like others.
