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.
