Basic Information: What is Stretch Marks Double Action
This review for Mustela Stretch Marks Double Action cream is intended to educate the customer and help them decide if they would like to purchase this product. This Double Action cream is designed to help pregnant women manage new and recent stretch marks that occur during their pregnancy. It also claims to aid in the skin’s elasticity. The product is available in stores and also from their website.
After researching their website, I could not find any information about active ingredients. However, an ingredient list found is as follows:
- DI-C12-13 Alkyl Malate
- Ethylhexyl Cocoate
- Cetearyl Alcohol
- Dicaprylyl Carbonate
- Hydrolyzed Soy Protein
- Butylene Glycol
- Cera Alba
- Butyrospermum Parfum
- Cetyl Palmitate
- Sclerotium Gum
- Zinc Gluconate
- Pentylene Glycol
- Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil
- Sophora Japonica Fruit Extract
- Hydrolyzed Avocado Protein
- Citric Acid
- Lupinus Albus Seed Extract
For the best results in reducing and preventing stretch marks, the manufacturer recommends the following directions for use. To reduce stretch marks during pregnancy, apply the product at first appearance and continue use for at least 2 to 3 months after initial use. In order to prevent stretch marks from appearing, start applications from the onset of pregnancy and continue use for 1 month after giving birth. Massage the cream into the skin using circular motions. This should be done twice a day. Once in the morning and once at night. The information provided did not specify how much cream to use per application.
The Stretch Marks Double Action cream sells in a 8.45 ounce tube for $46.00. On the website, if you order $40.00 or more in product, you get free shipping and also receive a free tube of PhysiObebe cleansing fluid. The cleansing fluid is perfect for cleaning your babies diaper area as well as a face wash. I could not find any information about any other discounts or price breaks for buying the stretch mark cream in bulk.
What To Expect
After using this product for a month, a significant difference was noticed. As the website states, the product is not only for use on the belly area. It is also proven effective in reducing stretch marks on the hip area, breast area and the upper thighs. It is recommended to continue use of this product from the beginning of pregnancy up until about 1 month after giving birth to prevent stretch marks. Results have been good, so I will continue to use this product in hopes of achieving its full benefit.
Keep An Eye Out
After extensive research on the Mustela website, no information regarding side effects or dangers could be found for Stretch Mark Double Action cream, Further research would be needed to attain this information.
No information was present on the website about guarantees or return policies. Again, further research would be needed.
The Bottom Line
Mustela’s Stretch Mark Double Action appears to be a very popular product. While there were only a few reviews available on this cream, they were overwhelmingly positive and stressed the satisfaction with the performance of this item. The product is a bit pricy, which might scare some potential customers away. It is unclear at this time whether or not this company offers any kind of money back guarantees, which also may not play into Mustela’s favor.
