One of the many issues we women face that concerns our physical look is stretch marks. Sad to say I have them. I don’t really mind having them now, not as much as I contemplated on them when I gave birth to lil’ Ms. GJG, one of the many reasons why I suffered post-partum depression. Lucky are those who never had stretch marks during or after pregnancy but for those of us who aren’t, we rely on topical creams that promise prevention or at least minimize their appearance. Stretch marks really depend on your skin’s elasticity and of course your genetic predisposition. For some who poses it because of the latter, they can only do so much. That is to lather up for an additional moisture surge that their skin needs and hope it won’t be as bad as they think.
Good thing there’s Celeteque Anti-Stretch Mark Cream. Its promise is to help strengthen skin elasticity to prevent and minimize new and recent stretch marks during and after pregnancy.
It has elastonyl that helps protect, restore the elasticity of the skin. It has phyto collagen that moisturizes the skin and minimizes the appearance of stretch marks. It smells of clean soap with a hint of shea butter that also promotes the strengthening of the skin, as well as providing deep moisturization.
I have very deep but not so big stretch marks on my lower abdomen area. They feel lumpy like that of an accordion when touched and present a light red purplish tone. I would’ve taken a photo but I think it might gross you out! Anyway, it’s a bit of an eye sore despite being back to my pre-pregnancy weight and having a flatter tummy. I was more bothered with the texture and the color my stretch mark presented, as I know for a fact it won’t go away anymore.
I tried Celeteque Anti-Stretch Mark Cream for two weeks. I like that its water-based and consistency is light when lathered onto the skin, ideal especially during this hot humid weather we’re experiencing. In my observation, it minimized the texture making the protruded skin smoother than what it used to. There’s also a minimal difference in terms of tone, making the purplish red color slightly less visible. Although I would love if the concentration were stronger, making the most visible stretch marks to quickly flatten, nonetheless I liked it. Maybe I should just use it longer to achieve better results.
Overall I think Celeteque Anti-Stretch Mark Cream is a good product to use by pregnant women. Since it can be applied and used on sensitive areas like the abdomen, thighs and breasts. Don’t worry, it is dermatologist tested, hypoallergenic, OB-Gynecologist-certified and is definitely safe for pregnant women. To achieve its maximum potential and for best results, use it twice daily- morning and night. Afterall, prevention is always better than cure. I’d definitely recommend this to all the pregnant women out there. If only this was available back when I was pregnant with lil’ Ms. GJG, I would have none if not less stretch marks ya know.
Celeteque Anti-Stretch Mark Cream is available at leading drug stores and department stores nationwide.
