Bio Oil Rave

Today I have a review and product rave for you on something that could benefit everyone; Bio Oil.  If you take one thing away from reading this review, then let it be this: Bio Oil is quite simply, bloody brilliant.

I’ve heard such wonderful things about Bio Oil but for some reason, I always put off buying it when I was younger and growing, and getting the odd stretch mark.  I probably looked at the price tag, which isn’t high by the majority of peoples standards now… but when I was 15 I was looking to spend my money on shoes and nights out… which hasn’t really changed eight years later, I’m just working now.  Anyway, I digress.  Now having used it years later, I really wish I had bought it sooner.  Bio Oil works.  Like REALLY works.

I was sent Bio Oil to try out back at the beginning of December and I’ve since repurchased it twice, once for me and once for Mr WLL as he has recently had an operation and Bio Oil has helped repair his skin as it was mending.  The scar is really improving and is definitely less severe than it would have been had he not used Bio Oil.  It has also worked wonders on my own scars.

I’ve had a fairly lumpy white scar on my arm for years and years now, since I was in school.  I got it after having my BCG injection (the one for tuberculosis where you have the six pricks needle first).  Anyway, after the injection healed, it left a scar on my arm that I’ve hated ever since.  It has always been so noticeable, it doesn’t tan and it looks ugly.  Everyone I know who had it done has the same problem; they have all scared.  When I first got Bio Oil to try out, I applied it to my arms on the Friday night, completely not thinking about the scar.  I wasn’t really trying it out then for the purposes of review.  I just didn’t have any moisturiser with me and thought I’d put the Bio Oil on, see what it was like and then start reviewing it the week after.  I didn’t use it on the Saturday, then on the Sunday night I was sitting watching TV and randomly looked at my arm, to find that I had a little patch of white flaky skin.  Like a red rag to a bull I picked it off- painless, no broken skin, simple.  It was only until I took a closer look that I realised it was my scar.  No kidding.  I’d applied Bio Oil ONCE and two days later picked off the lumpy scar skin to reveal fresh, normal skin underneath.  I absolutely couldn’t believe it.  I keep checking my arm to see if I can see it and its just not there!

After these, quite honestly, miracle results, I’ve started using Bio Oil all over on other scars that I have and on my stretch marks.  Nothing has happened over night as drastic as for mentioned, but I have noticed a visible difference in the appearance of my stretch marks; they’re definitely fading.  I’ve also used Bio Oil as a bath oil and as a full body moisturiser which has worked great with all this cold weather we’ve been having.  Central Heating plays havoc with my skin over the winter and Bio Oil has really helped to keep my skin healthy and moisturised.

I would urge everyone to try this, it is definitely worth it!

Have you had any great experiences with Bio Oil?

    I adore Bio Oil, if anything it was my miracle product of 2011! During spring last year, my skin basically hit rock bottom and after I'd managed to sort it out, I bought Bio Oil after reading countless positive reviews. I used it on my face, and although I didn't want to add extra oil, I'm so glad I did. It really cleared up all the scarring my poor skin was left with, even reduced redness. I then used it on my stretchmarks around my hips from my growth spurt in my early teens, and I literally couldn't believe the results. I cannot reccomend it enough either, it's worth every penny and more :)www.coffeeandrosesx.blogspot.comxx
