Remescar Silicone Stretch Marks Scar Cream Review

Remescar Silicone Stretch Marks Scar Cream 

For many women, stretchmarks are part of being pregnant and it’s inevitable at some point before, during or after your pregnancy, you’ll get them. Even though we’re told to love our flaws, stretchmarks are not pretty!

When you think about how quickly your skin expands during pregnancy, it’s not surprising that most of us get stretch marks. They can appear anywhere on your body but during pregnancy they usually appear on your tummy, upper thighs and breasts as your pregnancy progresses.

Using a good stretchmark cream during your pregnancy will help prevent too many appearing, and after pregnancy they will help your skin repair and heal. Which is why I was keen to try Remescar Silicone Stretch Marks Scar Cream.

Remescar is a light scar and stretch mark cream that's silicone based which improves and corrects all types of stretch marks. According to a clinical study, it showed that it reduces up to 50% of stretch marks severity on stomach, hips and legs in just 28 days*. 

I've been using Remescar for a few weeks and following the instructions, I applied after bathing to dry skin and massaged the cream in until it completely absorbed, twice a day. I made sure not to rub it too hard as this does not increase the effectiveness.

The cream is white coloured with a soft texture and absorbs into the skin very smoothly. I love how it rubs in and blends well so you aren’t left with those white cream marks you get when a product doesn’t rub in smoothly. This can be incredibly annoying, especially on dark skin. The cream dries quickly leaving my skin feeling soft and moisturised and not too sticky and greasy unlike some thicker based creams.  The scent is clean and fresh too, so not too overwhelming, and stays on the skin for some time after application.

So does it prevent stretch marks? It’s hard to tell! Remescar is best used twice a day for 2 to 3 months and as a preventive measure mothers to be are asked to use from the second month of pregnancy, or on existing stretchmarks for 3 months.

I’ve been using Remescar cream for just over three weeks, so clearly not long enough to see the results - yet. But so far my skin looks and feels moisturised so I would agree with it’s description, that is moisturises the skin, but as far as a decrease in the severity of stretchmarks, only time will tell.

In my opinion, the Remescar stretch mark cream is worth buying for first time mums, like me, who want to protect their skin during pregnancy.  This would also be a great product to give to an expectant mother to rub on their bump as it is full of natural and organic ingredients, smells good and moisturises the skin well.

You can buy Remescar from Boots here.
