Anyone used it? Is it worth buying? After 2 pregnancies and breast fed children and a lot of weight loss, the girls need some help sad

You're better off investing in a really supportive bra and using any old cream tbh.

Thanks Dame. I've followed the interventionists advice and have some good bras,but I'd just like to feel a bit better when I take the scaffolds down. I'm useless at the pampery stuff so any recommendations will be gratefully received.

It smells nice........that's about it!
I've found Bio-oli is a great all-round, cover everything moisturiser.

What sort of 'help' are you after? A cream isn't going to do more than moisturise your skin so a special 'bust cream' is no better than a getter body lotion.

it will do nothing except make your skin feel softer.

gravity, pregnancy and changing weight have stretched your skin. Surgery or a good bra will work.

Ideally, I want a the boobs of a nubile 20 year old, but since they don't come in a bottle and there's no chance I'd undergo surgery to get them, I was hoping the advertising was real! I had some potion called I think boob tube a few years back that seemed to tighten the skin a bit and I could delude myself that when I took off my bra, my boobs were nicer than before I started using it.

JokersGiggle bio oil seems to be everyone else's favourite thing in the world but I have a mental block about using it after getting a (probably unrelated) infection in a scar after using it.

Unfortunately anything on a boob related cream is hype as it isn't the skin that's the problem, it's that boobs aren't really held up by anything so even without babies and hormones, gravity starts to take hold.

I don't get the Bio-oil love either - it has no ingredients that help with scarring, consists of a very basic oil and yet they've managed to generate massive market share as a scar treatment. Their website is very careful to make no claims itself but puts loads of testimonials on instead. Given most scars fade by themselves, it's marketing genius - cheap as chips ingredient jazzed up with fragrance and quadrupled in price and we are all clamouring for it. I've even got a bottle of it and I knew it made no sense when I bought it hmm It's an OK moisturiser but for that money I can get one with proper anti-ageing ingredients or SPF as well.
