For those of us living with acne scars, surgery scars, stretch marks, or other permanent marks left by long-ago wounds, it can sometimes feel disheartening when, after slathering on countless serums and creams, you never see a noticeable difference. 

Nevertheless, hope is not lost for those looking to fade age-old scars, at least according to more than 1,000 reviewers who say they have seen results using the St. Mege Scar Removal Cream.

What is it?

The St. Mege Scar Removal Cream is a targeted treatment designed to fade the appearance of marks and scars, including those caused by burns, cuts, acne, C-sections and other surgeries. 

It's formulated with a blend of nourishing and powerful ingredients, including prickly pear cactus extract to hydrate skin, vitamin E to reduce the appearance of scars, and Centella Asiatica extract, a popular ingredient in K-beauty skincare.

In clinical studies, regular application of the Scar Repair Cream was shown to lessen the appearance of new scars in just eight weeks, and for older scars, results were seen in 6-8 months. 

St. Mege recommends applying the cream to the affected areas one-to-two times daily and avoiding sun exposure for the best results.

"Can we talk about this amazing miracle cream?! I tried so many name brands and spent crazy money and nothing worked - until this one!" writes one Amazon shopper.

"After 20 years with dark old leg spots, [I] finally [see] amazing results with this cream. The price is worth it, hands down," says to another reviewer. "It's given me the confidence to wear dresses and shorts once again. This is a five-star award-winning cream that works, for real!"

"It's a great scar cream," writes one user. "I started using this product about mid-October of this year. Within just a few weeks, I noticed a drastic difference in my chin acne scars. [...] The smell is great, as is the texture (not too runny), and it rubs in completely."

However, shoppers note that this is not a product suitable for breastfeeding or pregnant women.

"I bought this cream because I am pregnant, and I am starting to have stretch marks on my belly. The ad says that this can also work with stretch marks," writes one user. "However, [...] it is not recommended to use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. I wish [I would have known] to wait to buy it since I am eight months pregnant and planning to breastfeed. What I like about it is the cream is very light and not sticky."

Verdict

With more than 1,000 four or five-star ratings, Amazon shoppers recommend the St. Mege Scar Removal Cream to help lessen the appearance of new or old scars. However, if you are pregnant and hoping to avoid stretch marks, you should try this product instead
