You’re in the driver’s seat and beauty companies know it. At a recent symposium sponsored by The Fashion Group International, beauty executives described the ever evolving retail economy, social media universe and consumer values, and the quick lane switching they must follow to keep up.

Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy – I have used Mederma in the past on bumps and bruises, so I paid attention when I heard about this new product. It is specially formulated to improve the appearance of stretch marks and soften the skin around them. The creamy formula contains a blend of ingredients plus the botanical extract Cepalin®, hyaluronic acid and centella asiatica leaf extract. The trick is that you have to apply it evenly and massage it in a circular pattern into wherever your stretch marks show up (thighs, butt, tummy, knees, etc.) twice a day which is a lot. It gets absorbed pretty easily, but I find that I forget to do it in the morning (like I need one more thing to do get ready at 7 AM….) so end up doing at night only. My skin is definitely softer and it feels nice to use so I will stick with it.
FINAL VERDICT: BOB (Beauty on Budget) – Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy comes in a super large tube with a generous 5.29 ounces or about a one month supply depending on how religiously you use it. About $39.99 (which is about a quarter of the price of that famous stretch mark cream…..) www.drugstore.com
