Product Review: TriLastin SR Stretch Mark Cream

Some of the few things that we females obsess over are stretch marks and cellulite. Take a look at Mischa Barton. So some paparazzi took pictures of Mischa's cellulite ass a few years ago and she’s still b*tching about it in interviews now. Well, to be fair Mischa hasn’t been up to much since the cellulite photos either other than her show got canned and her credit card got declined of insufficient funds of at a grocery store. If I was the interviewer I wouldn’t know what else to ask her either.



TriLastin SR Stretch Mark Cream

Recently I tried out one of the popular stretch mark cream TriLastin SR. The cream was featured on the Tyra Banks show- a show dedicated all to Tyra Banks about Tyra Banks hosted by Tyra Banks, and EC Research Products guarantee that the cream will reduce your stretch marks in as little as 3 weeks. Taken from their website:

TriLASTIN-SR can substantially reduce the appearance of deeply furrowed stretch mark tissue as well as the characteristic discoloration associated with stretch mark scarring. TriLASTIN-SR also helps the skin to rejuvenate itself at the cellular level by allowing the natural regeneration of collagen and elastin while also preventing the breakdown of these essential structural proteins.

After reading the reviews online and seeing that it has the satisfaction guaranteed stamp on the website I decided to try it out.



How TriLastin SR Works

The instructions for the most effective results indicate applying TriLastin on your troubled area 2 to 3 times per day. After the application, wait a minute or two for the cream to absorb into the skin and then it is okay to put clothes over it.



TriLastin SR Price

It costs $100US for 6oz cream with shipping to Canada. The cream lasts about a month and half for my usage. The shipping was quite fast.



Did TriLastin Work?

Like every female I have a bit of light stretch marks on my hips and upper thighs. I’ve had them since I was maybe 14 years old. After applying TriLastin twice per day and using up the whole bottle, it really doesn’t take Detective Sherlock Holmes to investigate that it didn’t do much other than moisturize my butt. Perhaps the mark appearance reduced by maybe 5%, but it wasn’t a big difference at all.

Like Bio Oil which I mentioned a while back, this product is not effective for me. It didn’t work on my old or new stretch marks. How the product gets so many raving reviews on its website is beyond me.

  1. I don't really think any creams work on stretch marks. BUT I fall for these products all the time. lol

  3. I was always attracted by this kind of cream but I doubt it will work great. Too bad this one doesn't work for you..

  4. I've tried every cream ever made for stretch marks, and after having had 2 kids I can safely say that nothing works (sadly). At best they will keep your skin soft and moisturized. Even using them while preggers won't help,,,if you get them you get them. It's genetic. Nough said!

  5. Awwww... that sucks that the cream didn't work for you. I've personally never tried it.

  6. Aha love the Tyra Banks bit, so,so, so true! And I read somewhere that concerning stretch marks there really isn't much anyone can do. All lotions are basically a scam. The only thing I've heard of (and seems to work) is to build muscle in your but and thighs, etc to reduce appearance. I've been athletic for my whole life and so have my friends, so we've been doing lunges and squats for ever, and while we have our own body problems cellulite and stretch marks aren't there yet! So I'm guessing the good old squat will always be the winner?

  7. Thanks for the honest review on this.
    I've had the same kind of experience with other creams, too. It seems there isn't really a magic cure out there for stretch marks, but it's always fun trying to see.

  8. Did you try Palmer's Cocoa butter? I never tried it but my friend says it works and plus it's a drugstore brand so you're not spending a lot of money if it doesn't work =]

  9. A moisturized butt is a good thing, but $100 is a lot to pay for that.

    I can't believe this, but I actually have a real question related to moisturizing. What do you use on your face and on your hands/arms? I never used any, but last winter I needed some and my wife kept telling me to use vaseline. I didn't like it. I think she was trying to keep me away from using her stuff...so I might as well buy my own.

    Thank you!

    PS- I love that you mention Mischa Barton on there, I thought she was cool until she left the show that made her famous.

  20. Yeah I've pretty much come to the same conclusion as you - lotions don't work, or the ones that do cost way more than we're willing to pay. As for cellulite, good genes and exercise are the best ways to prevent those.

  21. I understand what you mean on the Miley discussion, I really do, it's sad, I know.

  22. I always wanted to try this product...I am sorry it didnt work for you:)
    Kisses darling and enjoy your weekend:)

  23. That's a lot to pay for moisturizer. My sister has some serious cellulite on her thighs as well and she's tried about 10 different kinds of cellulite cream, all in vain. I think she's come to terms with the fact that she'll have them for a while nad perhaps some day in the future they'll ionvent a product that'll magically blast stretch marks away.

  30. Thanks for the honest review. I don't think that anything can cure stretch marks....you can only prevent them to a certain extent in certain cases. sigh!

  31. Women may get these stretch marks during pregnancy, however men can also get stretch marks especially if men are obese or body builders. Many people take steroid containing skin cream, these people can also get stretch marks. fast method to remove stretch marks
