Pretty soon, I'm going to be starting 2016 with Bio-Oil. Not just with their fabulous skincare oil but with the lovely little planner that they sent over to me; thanks guys!
I wanted to pop up a quick post today to tell you all about their oil as I've been using it on and off for years now.
Bio Oil is a specialist skincare oil that is famous for the amazing effect that it has on skin. It helps to improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and un even skintone, while hydrating and moisturising the skin. It is that well known that it has become the No.1 selling scar and stretch mark product in 20 countries since it launched globally nearly 14 years ago! So many women use it when pregnant to help to prevent stretch marks as well!
Bio-Oil combines plant extracts and vitamins within an oil formula, as well as their breakthrough ingredient called PurCellin Oil which makes the consistency of the Bio-Oil lightweight and non-greasy so that the plant extracts and vitamins can be absorbed into the skin with ease. I love that they have a full ingredients list on their website here so that you know exactly what you're putting onto your skin.
I first reviewed Bio Oil years ago where I talked about the incredible result on a scar on my arm. You can read the post here. Since then, I've just used it on and off but because I test out so many products for my blog, I never really have the chance to just use the one product. This means that the results that I get from using the Bio Oil are varied but the one constant is how amazing it makes my skin feel when I use it.
I started using a new bottle on my arms a couple of months ago and I'm really happy with the results on the stretch marks on my arms but there are still some improvements to be made.
One area that I haven't tried Bio-Oil on for a prolonged period of time is my tummy which is a big problem area for me. I have lots of stretch marks and while they're not particularly dark in colour and I never really get my tummy out, they are noticeable to me and something that I'd like to diminish the appearance of if possible. So from the beginning of January, I'm going to use this fresh bottle of Bio-Oil every single day and chart my progress at home to see what difference it makes to my skin. I'm sure I'll update you when I've finished the bottle so check back for my empties post!
