Bio Oil

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

As you can see from this photo, I've nearly finished my little bottle of Bio Oil. Considering how often I've been using it, I'm surprised so little has lasted this long.

I first got into Bio Oil on the recommendation of friends who were claiming it was going to be the next Lucas Paw-Paw. Bio Oil themselves claim that the formulation will help reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, ageing and dehydrated skin. With ingredients such as Rosemary, Calendula, Lavender and Chamomile oils; as well as vitamins A, E and (the 'break through ingredient') Pur Cellin oil, it not only feels extremely luxurious but it actually does appear to do what it claims. I had dehydrated skin, uneven skin tone and stretch marks. Incredibly, my stretch marks, which have been prevalent for at least eight years now have now decided to fade. Mind you, they haven't faded entirely, but the difference has been very noticeable. My chronically dehydrated and uneven skin is soft and smooth. In fact, the results on my legs have been so good that I've started using it at night on my face. A word of warning though - if you do decide to use it on your face, it's probably best to apply at night and then wash off in the morning as this forumla won't work well with make-up straight over the top. There's also no SPF, so not really appropriate for day wear.  

It's quite a thick oil - and by that I mean it takes a while to seep in to the skin and it is worth taking out five minutes to massage to oil into the desired area. You only need a couple of drops and you will feel it sitting on your face until it seeps in, but it's well worth it. Bio oil is honestly one of the best all rounder products I've used and now that I'm down to my last few drops, I will definitely be purchasing a replacement bottle. For under $20.00 (AUD) I think it's a fantastic buy, perfect throughout winter although I'd probably use it a bit more sparingly during warmer months.

All the pregnant women I have met at work who use this miracle oil have had great results - I will definitely be using it! :-)

I believe it! I'd be interested to know if they use it prior to/during and or after pregnancy... I've heard stories of zero stretch marks if you start using early on!
