It is recommended that this treatment be applied two times per day to any affected areas throughout the course of the pregnancy.

Possible Side Effects

The product does not list any potential side effects, and claims to be entirely natural except for small amounts of fragrance. This should reduce any risk of irritation. Additionally, harmful chemicals such as phthalates or sulfates have been completely excluded from this product. This product was developed with the assistance of a licensed dermatologist, so every effort has been made to ensure it is safe for most skin types.


The Aden + Anais Stretch Mark Reducing Cream costs $29.95 for a 6 ounce bottle. This more expensive than many other stretch mark creams on the market, but is somewhat comparable to other products with such natural ingredients.


Aden + Anais does not offer any sort of guarantee on their stretch mark cream, which does raise some doubt about the product’s effectiveness. Returns are permitted within fifteen days, but the product must be in its original condition and return shipping costs must be paid by the consumer.

The product website does not offer customer reviews, but some feedback is available through third-party sites. All of it was positive, with previous customers stating that this stretch mark cream was successful in fading their freshly-formed stretch marks, and also provided a great deal of moisture during pregnancy. They also commented that it seemed to be effective in helping prevent further marks from developing over the course of pregnancy.


The Aden + Anais Stretch Mark Reducing Cream offers a host of beneficial and moisturizing ingredients demonstrated to help prevent the formation of stretch marks. It is one of the only creams available that has been clinically proven to help reduce the appearance of stretch marks after only two weeks of use, and comes highly recommended. It is somewhat more expensive than other stretch mark creams, and does not come with any product guarantee, which does mean there is some risk. The low price does also raise some concerns about the true quality of this product.
