The stretch mark cream by Bella Joi was created by a naturopathic doctor to help prevent stretch marks and to help reduce the appearance of existing stretch marks. It has the following ingredients:
* Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride - moisturizes the skin without giving it a greasy feel
* Aloe - a powerful antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties
* Shea Butter - an amazing antioxidant that quickly improves dry, damaged skin
* Olive Oil - since ancient times has been noted for its incredible benefits, contains the essential fatty acids that dry skin needs
* Cocoa Butter - helps improve skin elasticity and promote healthy collagen production
* Jojoba Oil - helps the skin heal from damage
* Mango Butter - rich with anti-inflammatory properties
* Rose Hip Seed Oil - helps reduce the redness around stretch marks and make them less visible
The Stretch Mark Cream by Bella Joi arrived in a white, squeezable bottle. It has a simple design which is quite refreshing for me.
I opened the cover to remove the seal inside and replaced the cover. The cream has a white color and has a thick, creamy texture. It has a pleasant citrus/orange scent which I think is nice.
I applied it to my tummy where I have the most stretch marks. I've been using this on one side of my tummy for almost 2 weeks now. The cream glides on smoothly and absorbs quickly. It doesn't leave any greasy feeling or residue. I also didn't get any allergies or skin reaction while using this.
The most important question of all. Does it work?
Well, it's too early for me to say and I haven't actually seen any difference on my stretch marks. They still look the same and the grooves are still there. I did notice that the skin on my tummy isn't dry anymore. I can't really comment if it helps prevent stretch marks because I'm not pregnant at the moment (yes I got NEW stretch marks on my 2nd pregnancy so I'm thinking I'll get new ones on my 3rd).
