Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil

Alright, I'll admit it. I have hideous stretch marks. I've had them since I was a child. In martial arts, I overstretched my legs too much, and then in show choir, overstretched them more. They weren't as bad then as they were after I went to college and gained the dreaded Freshman Fifteen. They became dark, deep, and stretched down past the back of my knees. It was then I knew I had another job to do -- find something to rid myself of these ugly, confidence lowering stretch marks.

I was using the Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Massage Lotion for Stretchmarks at first, but wasn't a fan of the texture, or how long it took. Eventually, near the end of my short-lived college career, I stopped using it. I moved back home, didn't touch it, and then moved to Columbus. On a trip to CVS, I found this, and was immediately pulled in.

Despite being a skin oil, it said it was 'non-greasy' and 'fast absorbing'. Too much to hope for, right?

As expected, it was greasy. And it stayed that way for a couple of minutes. It didn't take too long to absorb, but just not fast enough for my tastes. It did smell delicious, which is to be expected of cocoa butter. Plus, it was a pump, which made it easy to get just the right amount of oil and not have it spilling everywhere,

It also did diminish the appearance of my stretch marks. Some of the worst ones are no longer a bright, angry red, instead a light pinkish color that's easy to miss. The ones on the front of my thighs have actually all but disappeared! I'm still working on the ones on the inside of my thighs, but the product works, my stretch marks are fading, and that's what matters.
