    (Nice to know I'm not the only one)
    People with fake titties, they should get stretch marks but I don't see that, or maybe I'm not looking hard enough?

    ^^ Voodoo, did you exfoliate first?

I always had trouble trying to grow my nails on my right hand (I'm right hand dominant) as they forever broke off, but the oil has been getting absorbed into them and giving them more resiliance. For the first time ever I've actually had to start trimming them back to keep them manageable!
    Oh I agree!! It's made a huge difference in my complexion, my skintone is much more even now. I always rub what's leftover onto my hands and nails-- instantly more youthful looking hands.

    Excellent product.

    Oh me too, Voodoo! Brown sugar works really well too. I'll have to try the baking soda.

    I'm all for natural beauty remedies, the Bio-Oil is the only *non-food* product I've been using. My skin gets so dry in the winter from running the furnace, and I've been needing some extra help.

    Sorry for the O/T, but here's one of my faves: Bite the end off a strawberry (contains ascorbic acid and is also a natural tooth whitener) and rub the pulp and juice all over your face and neck. Let it dry, and rinse off with warm water. Then exfoliate with brown sugar mixed with honey (natural humectant). Rinse well, and enjoy a soft, smooth face that just glows.

    It didn't work for me either...perhaps Australians Bio oil is a slightly different formula? Weird.

    Did you ever wear a sleep bra?

    If stretch marks are your worst nightmare you are either very shallow or very sheltered.

    I can't remember if Alba was mentioned in this thread, but this was a post from today on another site:

    The majority of women have stretch marks. Especially on the breasts. I don't think that stretch marks are any indication that a skinny woman has had implants. Kate Beckinsale had been pregnant before and she could have gotten her stretch marks then. I had my own stretch marks after I got my breasts and they had never gone away. People are so used to air brushed photos that it looks shocking when you see the real thing.

    I have stretch marks and I've never had children or yo-yo dieted.
    I'm olive/tan skin and the stretch marks are a whiteish colour so I just use a little fake tan to cover them.

    Its cellulite I worry about getting!
