Conclusion of Our Clarins Stretch Mark Minimizer Review
On the plus side, we liked that the product comes in an easy to use tube. It also contains ingredients that may be beneficial to stretch marks. The manufacturer offers a 30-day money-back guarantee. Shipping is free if you spend $75 or more. We do have many more less positive comments however. The product lacks clinically proven ingredients such as Emu, Jojoba oils, Aloe Vera, Sunflower, Allium Cepa (onion) bulb extract, and Safflower, as well as vitamin A and D. The absence of these key ingredients may leave the product less effective in comparison to other brands. There is no assurance that the product is made in an FDA certified facility, that it is free from fillers and binders, and contains non GMO ingredients. The dosage instructions are non existent, as are the warnings and possible side effects. The price is high at $56 per tube, and shipping is an extra cost unless you spend $75 or more. The 30-day money-back guarantee is too short and does not allow you to return an opened or used tube of cream for a refund. The manufacturer does not provide new customer incentives nor bulk buying discounts. There a only a handful of reviews on the product website. For all these reasons, we are not recommending Clarins Stretch Mark Minimizer. There are less expensive anti-stretch mark products on the market that contain clinically proven ingredients that also come with a reliable guarantee.
