Our Review Summary of Mustela Stretch Mark Prevention Cream

Mustela Stretch Mark Prevention Cream seem to be a promising product. It contains ingredients that work in favor of your skin, providing it with elasticity, hydration and moisture that it needs during pregnancy and after birth. Our concern is that there is no information provided indicating the period of time that it takes for one to see results. If time period was provided, it would have been easier to know if the product is working for you or not when you see or do not see results within the specified time. Some products take about two months before they can work on some individuals. If this is the case, 30 days is very little for one to determine the effectiveness of the product. Therefore a 30-day money-back guarantee is not ideal. Rather look for a product that will give you 60 or more days for you to assess its effectiveness. This will ensure that you do not return the product thinking that it does not work for you where as it might be taking time to work due to individual differences. It is also advisable to buy a product that indicates the period of time that it will take to see results so that you know what you are in for. Due to these reasons, we do not recommend this product for stretch marks prevention and reduction.
