Genetics plays a huge part in stretch marks but I can say I was the only girl in my family to use this during pregnancy and didn’t receive a single stretch mark whereas the girls who didn’t all received them- so I like to think this did work and helped mine be less visible or receive none at all. Also smells good!
I have tried a few stretch mark creams in the last few months. This is the only cream I keep buying. The smell is great and not overpowering. There’s no after feel or residue. Not to mention very little stretch marks and I’m almost 9 months!
This keeps my skin so soft and hydrated! We shall see at the end of my pregnancy how well it did keep the stretch marks away but so far so good! I would suggest waiting until the second trimester just so the scent doesn't make you nauseated. It's not very strong, but there is a scent.
Much better than anything I tried before for stretch marks during pregnancy, I would normally develope some by now but it's still working out really good. It feels great and smells good.
I love this stuff. I’m convinced it works. It smells amazing. I’ve been using it since I was 10 weeks pregnant and I have not a single mark. I will keep using after a little bit after birth as well.
Started using at 18 weeks and it worked great for me. No new stretch marks and my existing ones that I had didn’t get any worse. If you get it subscribe because it is a little pricey.
Smells amazing!! Makes my skin so smooth!
At about 28 weeks I noticed teeny tiny little stretch marks trying to peek through. I had been using a belly butter as a gift but ran out. So I purchased this after reading reviews and it’s awesome! The stretch marks didn’t get worse and I haven’t had any new ones. It smells amazing too!
Smells amazing! I have gained 70lbs with this pregnancy and I use this every morning. I have very light stretch marks but for the most part this has really helped.
Has worked wonderfully for me so far. Apply twice a day and keeps belly moisturized
So far it’s working great but want to give it more time before more stars

Officially 9 months pregnant. Started using Island Beauty at 4 months. Belly is big but no stretch marks! Very happy with the results and would definitely recommend!
I loves this! It smells really good! I still don’t have any stretch marks and I’m 6 months pregnant. Wasn’t sure about it and spending that much but so far I am very satisfied with this purchase.
I saw this product on facebook and read the stories of women who have had no stretch marks while pregnet and using this product. As of now i'm 6 months and have NO stratch marks whats so ever. So far the product works and is highly recommended.
I started using twice daily after each shower during my first trimester after seeing this on Instagram. At 35 weeks, I increased my twice daily usage to include two more applications while at work separated by 5 hours (I work 12hr shifts as a RN). I’m now 39 weeks and no stretch marks. The cream isn’t thick and is non greasy. I smells neutral and I can tell it penetrates deeper layers of skin as it doesn’t just sit ontop of your skin.I’ve heard ppl say they’ve had stretch marks pop up after they have the baby. If this happens in my case I will come to review.
Brought for my daughter and with consistency it actually works. Her stretch marks lightened.
I was fairly skeptical about this product, as I am an older mom and still have visible stretch marks from growth spurts during puberty.However, I applied this daily after showering, from mid-First Trimester through birth, and appear to have no marks on my belly!I figured they would definitely show up after everything shrunk back down, but I am 4 weeks post birth, and there is nothing. Whether it was the Island cream, genes, or luck, I am happy!
This is my last pregnancy, was a surprise of course. To add to the madness it’s TWINS! With my previous pregnancies I would use coco butter or the basic over the counter and didn’t do much and would end up with stretch marks. Im 33yr old and it’s been 4 yrs since I was last preggo and got this at 10 weeks. Not a single stretch mark! I also am a person who hates lotion but this doesn’t have that greasy feel afterwards. Love the smell makes me think of citrus. Recommending it to all my pregnant friends. I’ve been even using it on my scars and seems lighter to me.
I love this product. Light, non greasy, soft scent
I love this product, but I wish it wasn't so expensive. A jar of this lasts maybe 3 weeks for me in my last trimester which is a lot to shell out for cream. So far I have no stretch marks and I am in late 3rd trimester, but as we know they are technically genetic and can happen at anytime! However, this is the only cream that calms the itchiness so I absolutely love it for that and the scent!
It really works for me, I am 8 months pregnant and I don’t have any stretch marks.This is my second time buying it and I’ll buy again in the future!
Have no idea if this stuff works at all, but I still like it. I used it daily after every shower all through pregnancy and have no stretch marks. Either it works, or I just wasn't getting stretch marks naturally. I guess we'll never know.
Everything is ok)
Not one stretch mark insight!
It has a very nice, refreshing citrus scent that was not too harsh or revolting to my elevated senses during pregnancy. I’m now on week 40 and I haven’t gotten any stretch marks yet. I’m on my second bottle now.
Love its smell. It gets absorbed pretty quickly.
I loved the smell sooo much. Very delightful. 8 months pregnant currently and none of my old stretch marks have grow and I am definitely bigger than my last.Its not heavy once applied . Smooth feeling and definitely can feel the moisturizing.Love it!!!
35 weeks and no stretch marks so fat! I love how moisturizing it is and the scent is great too.
Great product! Hydrating and smells nice.
8.5 months pregnant no stretch marks
The cream works well, the only the complaint is it has a little smell that can be a little overwhelming. Overall, I am very satisfied with this product. I started using it as soon as I found out I was pregnant, and I am about 5 1/2 months pregnant. I recommend the monthly subscription, depending on how often you use it; you may go through it quickly. I use it about three times a day because my family has a history of stretch marks with pregnancy.
Just had my little one 13 days ago and not one stretch mark. I used this cream twice a day for the whole pregnancy and it worked amazing!!!
Me encanto esto producto desde que se me termine lo vuelvo a comprar ,estoy en la semana 16 de mi embarazo y me han salido algunas estrías rojas en los muslos ya que con mi embarazo han crecido bastante y con esta crema me han aclarado bastante ,estoy súper contenta con el resultado
I LOVE this product. It is 100% way better than any stretch mark body butter. You can use as much as you want even on the same body part and it will not be greasy. Just rub it in like any other lotion. I continue to order this product throughout my pregnancy. I believe I was 4-5 months pregnant when I began to use it and now I am 6 months and still am confident that I will remain stretch mark free. If I do get them it is because they are hereditary but so far so good. However, the last one I ordered when I rub it in sometimes there are little gel balls which was never in the other one and is kind of annoying. I have to pick them off.
I have ordered 3 jars throughout my daughters pregnancy she loves it
I bought this a couple of months ago when I was two months pregnant I’m currently almost 7 months I’ve been putting it on here and they’re not daily because I tend to forget all the time but I don’t see any stretch marks I don’t have any yet not sure if I will be getting some not sure if is do because of the lotion but if it is then it does work .. dissent is very strong but I got over it already
Smells amazing and used it whole pregnancy and only got one stretch mark that’s small and on my belly button
I am 39 weeks pregnant and have been using Island Beauty once daily on the bump since first trimester. Somehow, I have managed to only get a few very small stretch marks on my sides above my hips, and those just showed up in the last week. I can’t say for sure whether I’m genetically lucky or whether this cream is the reason, but I’m definitely not leaving it to chance! I will continue to use Island Beauty postpartum and in any future pregnancy! The smell is great and I feel moisturized even then next morning when applying before bed. The only con is that it’s a little spendy. Using generously daily, one jar will last about a month.
I started using island beauty daily around week 14 of pregnancy. When I gave birth at 39w+1d I was still stretch mark free! I only gained about 30 lbs throughout pregnancy, so that may have contributed, but overall this product seems to have worked in preventing stretch marks. Would highly recommend, be sure to start using early!
Started using @ 11 weeks of being pregnant.Although she was small.Not one stretch mark. Anywhere!
It’s my second pregnancy and this is the best cream. It’s thick but not slimy and has almost no scent. Drys fast
Good stuff! My wife use it every day!
Candace mom of 4
I'm 37 weeks into my 3rd pregnancy. Still no stretch marks!
I have no stretch marks at all! Started using daily during second trimester.
I am still fairly early in my pregnancy, so stretch marks are not a problem yet. But I am using this cream daily after I shower. I love the smell (which is important during morning sickness/sensitive smell times). And the cream makes my skin feel soft and nice. I also have not been itchy at all, which I was very much so with my first pregnancy. Hopefully it helps with the stretch marks too.
I tried stretch mark creams from several brands, but Island Beauty is my favorite. It's non-greasy, smells nice and absorbs quickly. I am 32 weeks pregnant and don't have any stretch marks.
This is the absolute best money I ever spent! I used it religiously while I was pregnant and I never got a single stretch mark while I was using it. (I ran out the last two weeks of my pregnancy and ended up with a few just below my navel) Ialso used the shower gel/body wash, but I tell all my friends to get this stuff. It's liquid gold! Plus it smells amazing.♡♡ I would buy three jars, one for each trimester. Trust me you don't want to run out like I did.
Even this is pricey compared to other brands, it prevented me from having stretchmarks while I was pregnant and even after delivery which what we all wanted, right? If i get pregnant again, no doubt this will be a must-have on my list.
Great product. I'm pregnant and it seems like it's working great.
This lotion is amazing. It goes a long way too. I have used it daily for belly, upper thighs and lower back "love handles" for 8 months of my pregnancy. I just NOW have to get a new jar of it. It smells amazing, I swear my husband cuddles with me more when I use it. I use it as face and leg lotion as well. My skin feels amazing all day. I don't have any stretch marks so far but, that is really up to genetics as well as wear and tear throughout the pregnancy. It helps with that annoying itchy belly. I put this on and I don't itch AT ALL. Highly recommend this lotion.
I used this all over my belly while I was pregnant and didn’t get a single stretch mark! I didn’t use it on my chest and I ended up getting stretch marks. I know better for next time!
Makes my skin feel soft and moisturized, I don’t really know if it’s been helping with actual stretch marks as I haven’t really been suing attention to my stomach much I just rub it in and massage my body
I got this moisturizing cream based on all the reviews. I just found out I’m pregnant 5 weeks so I will keep you updated.Smells great and it does feel moisturizing I’m planing on combining it coconut oil.
I bought this product and loved it!!! I gerd birth at 38 weeks. Absolutely no stretch marks. I would put it on every morning starting sometime around 20 weeks and used baby oil after shower prior to that. I went through one whole jar and about a half of one before I had my little one! I would only put it on my thighs, butt, love handle area, lots on the tummy, and breasts.
Great product. Smells amazing!
I’ve been using this for the last few months of my pregnancy even though I didn’t really get any stretch marks I am positive this has helped me out especially towards the end now that my belly has been growing faster! I use this along with vitamin e oil and bio oil as well
I switched over to the product stretchheal but I love the smell of this stuff only works if you pair the oil with it
I’m 31 weeks pregnant and don’t have any stretch marks. I am on the smaller side as far as my belly size, but still no stretch marks. I would use it on my whole body if it wasn’t so expensive because it makes my skin so soft!
very good product, have not had a single stretch mark so far (month 7)
Started using this at 19 weeks pregnant. I probably use it on average 5 days a week. I'm currently 34 weeks pregnant and have no strechmarks! I generally cover my belly and hips and will probably only need two jars for the pregnancy. So it was well worth the money. It does have a cirtus scent but I don't find it offense. It smells more natural vs bath and body works. It's very moisturizing clothes are a clingy if you dress right after using it but they don't get oily or stained. Would definitely recommend!
I love the smell. I love the quality. It doesn’t leave a greasy or oily after feel. It definitely has helped so much. I did not start using this until a few weeks into my 2nd trimester and the usual Palmers Cocoa Butter Stretch mark lotion and oil wasn’t helping and I noticed some stretch marks appearing on my breasts. I have some very minor light and shallow stretch marks on my butt cheeks but they are so faint, my husband said they almost look like tiny scratch marks. However stretch marks vary from person to person. My stomach has 0. The ones on my breast faded from purple to soft pink just since using this. I’m going on 31 weeks so we will see how effective it is in the remaining weeks to come. I use 1 container every 3 weeks and am about to receive my 5th container in a few days. Will continue to use till the end!
I'm only in my second trimester, the real test will be how this helps prevent throughout pregnancy, but so far so good. Also, the smell is LOVELY. I recommend this product.
Mantiene hidratada la piel antes y después del embarazo
Working good so far!The description states it doesn’t have a smell although it does, it’s a pleasant smell though, nothing overwhelming. Isn’t sticky or heavy after drying.
Olivia J lovely
I just got this product in and have only used it once, but the smell is AMAZING and it feels so silky smooth on my stomach.
I recently just started my 4th jar of this cream. I am 28 weeks pregnant and have been using this cream along with Bio-Oil Skincare Oil since I was 6 weeks pregnant. So far I have no stretch marks anywhere on my belly. I make sure to apply and massage the oil first and then apply and massage the cream every day.I am that the oil and cream will continue to help my skin throughout my third trimester. I definitely love that it keeps my skin soft and moisturized throughout the day!
I’ve used Island beauty before for stretch marks and it has worked a whole lot better than other (even more expensive) products I’ve tried! I’m excited to see how well it continues to wrk. The product got delivered quickly, it’s a very decent size, and smells lightly delicious! Does not leave a sticky residue.
33 weeks with #2. Maybe it’s genetics, maybe it’s this cream. But so far so good ♀️ Love the smell. You’d only need two tubs tops for whole pregnancy.
Love this belly lotion! I have used it for two pregnancies and have no stretch marks.
Me agrado su olor y su efectividad
AMAZING!!! I LOVED IT .
I have tried a number of belly creams/oils for pregnancy, and this brand has become my favorite! I started with this stretch mark prevention cream and absolutely loved it. I can't wait for their body oil to my routine as well! I especially love this cream now that I'm in my third trimester because it is very fluid yet hydrating, which makes it easier and more comfortable to apply on my stretched skin. Much better than the super heavy/thick belly butters that cause too much friction/pulling while trying to rub in.
I’ve heard and researched that stretch marks are genetic. Whether that is true or this cream truly does help prevent, I can’t be certain. The Island Beauty Cream smells and feels amazing on my growing stomach. I’m on my 5th jar, 7 months in and love the way it feels. This is my first pregnancy and I have not had any stretch marks thus far. I do think the cream does a great job at moisturizing and reducing itchy skin. It’s a win in my book!
I love this lotion. I started using it on week 12 and so far I am on my second jar and not a single stretch mark as of week 33. I don’t know if it’s this lotion working or just my skin not having stretch marks at all but I decided to use it even though it is kind of pricey than to be sorry later and have to deal with stretch marks and I use it every day. I love the light fresh smell and the texture: it’s not too thick but it is a nice moisturizing texture. I will be ordering my third jar soon to say me through the last weeks of pregnancy and recovery.
wife's about to start using it.
Started using this week to relieve my stretching belly skin. Skin Feels great after applying and the cream smells like lemoncello (yum). Hoping it is working to help prevent the appearance of stretch marks - we’ll see…
I was hesitant to buy this just because it was more expensive then the other stretch mark creams, I love the smell and the texture is amazing! It rubs on so easy and dries fast.
To be fully effective and see results, you have to use this early (1st trimester) to help moisturize and prepare your skin when it starts stretching. I used it in my 1st trimester and my belly did not itch while growing, and have not seen stretch marks so far (I am currently 28 weeks.) I recommend this product and wished that i discovered this waaaaay back
I loved using this. It smells amazing and feels great on your skin. It works well in prevention!
smells lovely & love my results
Love this product! Smells great, no stretch marks! It leaves no oily residue like bio-oil p, etc...I also used their maternity body wash. It is a pricey but TOTALLY worth it!! I used their Stretch mark treatment right after having my babies (as my tummy shrank back down) I recommend this to everyone & will definitely use it during future pregnancies!
I’ve been using this cream send my first trimester and I am current 22 week and have not gotten any additional stretch marks as of yet. I use it daily and it smells wonderful and feels great I use it with the oil it comes with and the activation serum after the fact and it’s been working great
No stretch marks during or after pregnancy. Loves it and
So far so good! I’m 7 months pregnant. I’ve been using this for a month or so and it does leave my belly feeling “stretchable” and moisturized all day long.
*Update* Now at 36wks, using once daily and still not a single stretch mark! LOVE this product!!! (See 2nd & 3rd photo’s)I started using this at 20 weeks when my belly started to pop. Not consistently, but I don’t recommend doing that. I’m now at 28 weeks and belly has really popped. No stretch marks so far. I’m now using it faithfully twice a day, so we’ll see how it goes. I’m really pleased with the product. It’s smells amazing and spreads very easily as it’s not a super thick consistency. It’s not greasy at all, absorbs easily and can put clothes on right away. It also helps a lot with itching, as I can feel my skin really tightening now.I will update my review as I get further along, and after.PS: The faint line across my belly in the pictures is from my maternity underwear
Best cream ever. You have to get this if you’re pregnant
Lo único q no me agrado fue su fragancia
35 weeks in, zero stretch marks, my husband refers to it as my “tropical cocktail”
