Clicks Stretch Mark Cream Negative Review

When I was about four months pregnant with my fourth child, I felt it was the right time to start using an oil or cream on my tummy and thighs to prevent stretch marks from forming (as I have done with all my other pregnancies), and to help with dry itchy skin. I was at the Clicks shop in Pietermaritzburg, and decided to try their brand of stretch mark cream

On the box it advertises the following:

  • Keeps skin nourished;
  • Helps prevent stretch mark formation;
  • Leaves skin feeling smooth and moisturised;
  • Formulated with tissue oils of sweet almond oil, wheat germ oil, avocado oil, cocoa butter, evening primrose oil, shea butter, rosehip oil and vitamin E;
  • Light and non-greasy;
  • Daily use can help relieve dryness and itchiness caused by stretching skin.

I used it till the cream was nearly three quarters empty, massaging it in every morning and night as per the directions on the box. This is what I experienced from using this cream:

  • My skin on my tummy and thighs became even more dried out than it was before using the cream, actually flaking off and incredibly itchy;
  • The cream is not light but rather thick and very difficult to rub in to one’s skin;
  • I definitely did not feel like my skin was being nourished and moisturised.

I stopped using this cream and started using Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Massage Lotion for stretch marks. Wow, what a huge difference right from the beginning! You can read my review on this fantastic cream by Palmer’s here.

I would not recommend Clicks Stretch Mark Cream at all, as I feel from experience that it did the opposite of what the advertising said it should do.

I returned the cream to Clicks, as they have a full refund policy on products that one is not satisfied with, and they did give me a full cash refund.
