When I was contacted a couple of weeks ago by Bio-oil about reviewing it for them I jumped at the chance I’ve heard lots of great things about it but never got round to trying it myself. Bio-oil claims to reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks, improve the appearance of dehydrated skin and uneven skin tone.
Bio-oil is usually a firm fav with pregnant ladies or those post pregnancy when it comes to helping reduce stretch marks; For me luckily I didn’t get any stretch marks during my pregnancies but I wanted to see if it will help my dehydrated and uneven skin tone as well as it claims to.
I have been using bio-oil for roughly 10 days twice a day (morning and night) on my face just applying a few drops and massaging it in well. The first thing I noticed was the smell – I didn’t think it would have much of a scent to it but it smells goergous, the lavender in it is sooo relaxing, I’ve been really loving using it just before bed as I’ve found it quite calming.
I don’t usually like using oils because I oftern find them way to greasy and leaving me unable to do my make up for a while or I worrying about it getting on clothes but with bio-oil I haven’t have that problem I little goes along way so I just use a tiny amount and it sinks in almost immediately so there’s none of that horrible greasiness!
My other concern was is it going to break me out being an oil but my skin has been absolutely fine with it.
Bio oil do advise using the product for 3 months before you’ll see results but I’ve got to say even after just using it this short time my skin looks brighter and feels great, so soft. I’m definety going to continue using bio-oil as part of my daily skin care routine. I wanted to share with you how it’s gone so far because I’ve been so impressed with the results I’ll update again when I get to three months!
