I have been doing some research on my own but I would really like to hear from you all what you used, what it did for you and what your rating is. Thanks so much, I am lost here without you.

The Body Shop has a Vitamin E Body Butter with similar ingredients to the Palmers except is smells divine, like roses, so I am going to try that.

Keep in mind that everyone's skin is different so what works for one person may not work as well for the next. 

I used three different products and have been very OCD about this process.

Here is my routine:

At two weeks post OP I started using the Palmer's Vitamin E Skin Therapy Oil.  Massage three times a day on all scars.  Make sure that the incision is totally closed before starting this.  I did this for 6 weeks.

From there I used the Mederma Cream for 12 weeks, 3 times a day on all scars.

I then tired the Bio Oil for a few weeks.  This oil works well but I was not thrilled about the smell of it.  I am now back to the Palmer's oil and use it on my entire body after every shower.  I massage the scar line two times a day with this. 

My scar is completely flat, no bumps and looking really good.
