CeraVe's Intensive Stretch Marks Cream is loaded with skin-repairing and cell-communicating ingredients, along with a mix of antioxidants and emollients that makes good on its promise to repair and restore the skin's barrier. You may find a nice mix of plant butters (cocoa, shea and mango), along with ceramides, hyaluronic acid, argan oil, and a peptide; this is a very good moisturizer for use anywhere on the body.

Bonus: It's fragrance free and packaged in a tube to protect the light and air-sensitive ingredients. But for stretch marks? Well, don't get your hopes up. Intensive Stretch Marks Cream earned a Beautypedia BEST for its impressive ingredient deck, not for its ability to make good on its claims to improve the appearance of stretch marks.

When skin develops a "stretch mark", this is literally the stretching and breaking of elastic bands deep beneath the surface layers of skin—once this occurs, nothing applied topically may repair them. For more information about this topic, check our article, Stretch Marks: What Works (and What Doesn't). We may warn you now, there's some hope, but the scientific and medical conclusions are a little depressing for those of us afflicted with vexing stretch marks.

That aside, this is absolutely a wonderful option to consider for a dry-skin moisturizer without sunscreen, above or below the neck. If you do use Intensive Stretch Marks Cream on your face or eye area, it's likely a better choice for your evening routine as its richer texture may not be ideal under your sunscreen and makeup.
