This is a review for Thalgo Stretch Mark Cream, a cream that claims to help the user prevent and manage the appearance and formation of stretch marks on the skin. Also known as striae, stretch marks are caused by the rapid pulling of the skin, which results in micro tears. These tears then manifest themselves as reddish or purple marks on various parts of the body – eventually turning silverish in color.

The Conclusion of Our Thalgo Stretch Mark Cream Review
Stretch marks are very common and most people experience this skin condition at some point in their lives. In this review, we discussed Thalgo Stretch Mark Cream, a product that promised to be effective when used to assist with the appearance of stretch marks. In conclusion, we thought that this cream had the potential to be effective as it did contain some key ingredients, known for their application to skin care and we appreciated the manufacturer’s money back guarantee. However, there were some concerns. There was no indication on how much of each ingredient was present in this product. The returns policy also lacked as it stated that the product, which needs to be used over a long period of time, had to be returned at 75% capacity. This makes it difficult for users to gauge its effects, before sending it back. The product was also a bit more expensive than others currently available. As such, we believe that users could benefit from other scar tissue or skin care creams more than this product.
