Stretch Marks – The mummies’ nightmare!
As soon as I fell pregnant with Baba, I became obsessed with avoiding stretch marks. I started really well as I was making sure to hydrate my skin every single day with coconut butter and other wonders.
I was doing really well and I was actually proud of having none of those naughty lines! Happy (future!) Frenchie Mummy! But the dream didn’t last long and towards the end of my pregnancy, a massive stretch mark appeared at the bottom of my bump. I was gutted! I had been doing so well, making sure to eat healthy food and moisturising my bump twice a day to avoid it.
Once Baba was born, it became even worse. I actually had a couple of very dark stretch marks on both sides of my tummy. To be honest, I think I kind of gave up at this stage and I was so busy with un nouveau né, I was just happy when I was able to have a shower and feel fresh. Exit the moisturising routine!
Bien sûr, I hated them but I actually forgot about it all. I used to hate looking at them in the mirror the first few weeks, but I got to the point where I didn’t even notice them anymore…
SOS Solution for Stretch Marks – An introduction
But when Science of Skin asked me if I wanted to test their product and write some SOS Solution for Stretch Marks Review, I decided it was time to sort those naughty lines out!
So what is the SOS Solution for Stretch Marks? Designed especially for mamans, this cream moisturises your skin and helps to soothe and calm it. Its fragrance-free formula contains natural active Green Tea extracts with vitamins C & E.
The SOS Solution for Stretch Marks is scientifically formulated to help reduce the appearance of stretch marks and minimise their redness.
La crème parfaite for Frenchie Mummy as I happened to have very dark stretch marks and I want to rock in my bikini this Summer…
A lot of nice stuff on the box, but does it work?
SOS Solution for Stretch Marks Review – First Impressions
I usually like creams to smell like some fruit or other attractive smell. So the fact that the SOS Solution for Stretch Marks is fragrance-free would not have made me choose this cream. However, as soon as I started using it, I actually liked the texture of it. It feels a bit like a gel and it penetrates well the skin. Nothing worse than feeling sticky!
I was quite happy with the size of the solution too. At a retail price of £39.99, a bottle of 100ml seems reasonable.
The directions for use indicate that for best results, you should use at least 2 to 3 times a day. Frenchie Mummy is not so much of a good student when it’s about following instructions. I reckon I used it maximum twice a day. Maman does not have the time nor the opportunity to apply some cream on my tummy at lunch. It would be really weird to do so at work…
Last but not least, I am always very suspicious about this type of products. However, what I like about the SOS Solution for Stretch Marks is that you are not promised some ridiculous results. I hate the type of creams that sells you the idea that you can drop two clothes sizes without having to exercise. It’s a scam!
But not this cream! Hurrah! The solution does what it says on the box!
SOS Solution for Stretch Marks Review – Le verdict
As I previously said, before starting using the solution, I had very dark stretch marks. The SOS Solution for Stretch Marks is said to reduce the appearance of these awful marks as well redness associated with them… and it works!
I have only been using the cream for a bit more than 3 weeks and my lines are not as bad as they used to be! They look much better. It’s such a progress as I actually kind of gave up on them…
Another thing I like about this product is the fact that you don’t need to use much each time you apply it on your skin. I reckon I still have enough cream to last me quite a while!
The appearance of my stretch mark has reduced significantly since I started using the solution and my abdomen also feels very smooth.
A Frenchie Mummy very happy!
It’s a winner! I am in love with the SOS Solution for Stretch Marks:
- it helps to soothe the skin
- the tube is easy to use and so compact you can pack it away if you are off somewhere
- it’s fragrance-free
- the stretch marks become clearly lighter within a couple of weeks
- each solution can last you for a while
- the appearance of stretch marks is significantly reduced!
I must admit that I am not a believer when it’s about this sort of products but I must say that this particular cream changed my mind!
I am definitely going to carry on using it for the next few months before the Summer!

I’ve made my peace with my tiger stripes but come bikini (tankini) season it would be nice to fade them a little!
Sounds like a fab product but alas I don’t believe there’s much can be done about stretch marks once you have them. I got them on the tops of my thighs of all places! Who knew.
This sounds like a great product. It’ll be nice to try something other than Bio Oil or Cocoa Butter.
Great prize, good luck everyone!
what a fab prize to hopefully win
Great giveaway x
This looks like an interesting product, would love to give it a try xx
I love my tiger belly, but a little pamper always feels nice – thank you for the chance x

This would be great as you hear about so many of these products but really they don’t do much as they say they will.

Although I don’t think I’ll be wearing a bikini any time soon, I’d love to have my stretch marks faded just for me.
I didn’t think I’d got any stretchmarks. My husband left me to my delusions until after I had my son, when I could see them for myself…
Thanks for joining us at #LuckyLinky

lovely prize 🙂
great prize thank you
I have a 3 week old so this will go a way to reducing those pregnancy stretch marks!
I don’t seem to be doing too badly with stretch marks, but at 19 weeks I still have time to get some stripes. I do have some on my hips from weight loss when I was younger, which I’d like to get rid of
This sounds like a brilliant product. I have tried many products widely available on the market and nothing seems to help or fade my stretch marks. I would love to see if this lives up to its promise.
I have been really lucky not to have stretch marks, but I would love to win for my daughter. After having two kids she is covered in them. She is so self conscious of them, if this would help, she would be so delighted.
fingers crossed x
I’d love to give this a try it looks fab x
I am so self conscious about my stretch marks so would love to try this cream. I cover up in summer whereby it would be lovely to enjoy the sunshine.My boys were worth it though!
Seems like great product.
