Bio oil...

OK well lets start this post with you don’t have to be preggers or have ever been preggers to use Bio Oil… its the first thing people think of when they think go Bio Oil but it really is a cult product … As someone who’s lost and still losing weight I’m unfortunately going to be one of those people with some loose skin… I have actually discussed this with my doctor who agrees that when the remaining weight is gone… it is something that I will definitely have to consider… and in preparation for it, in a couple of years time.. my skin will need to be in good condition for the old nip tuck! I also have a scar on my knee which when the general public finally get a look at them, I don't want them confused with a smurf with blue knees!

Another myth busted is ‘people with oily skin should stay away from face oils’ not true at all… a fact I learned from some lovely beauty bloggers I follow… so you can use it on your face as a moisturiser even if you have oily skin just be careful how much you use and how sensitive your skin is... common sense people... but a quick google will show you how successful it is for lightening acne scars... 

Bio Oil is kind of a marmite produce for some people… but for stretch marks, scars of any kind and dry skin it’s a superhero! 

As the name suggests its a dry oil which essentially means it applies like a slightly greasy liquid but as soon as you begin to massage in into the skin it quickly absorbs without any trace of residue… it has a floral scent which includes lavender and herbs… and it’s kind of spicy (almost smells warm and christmasy if that makes sense!) but it’s not over powering and the scent fades as it absorbs into the skin … it has a slightly runny texture, but doesn’t feel sticky or greasy on your skin when it's applied… you only need a small amount so the bottle will last you AGES… I’ve been using mine for nearly 6 weeks now and I haven’t made a dent into it yet … but my skin and especially my cuticles are in great condition! The box says you should use it for a minimum of 3 months to see results but I can guarantee you’ll see them much sooner that that! 

Another plus is it absorbs very quickly, unlike the body butters… and its not one but greasy even though it’s an oil… I know! 

So whats in it… The science bit... 

Vitamin A – to improve the skin’s elasticity, texture and tone
Vitamin E – The most widely used antioxidant in skincare products today, Vitamin E increases the moisture content of the epidermis, thereby making the skin softer, smoother and more supple. Vitamin E also assists in the maintenance of healthy-looking skin
Calendula Oil – Calendula Officinalis, more commonly referred to as marigold, has been used for centuries as a natural antioxidant and has the ability to clarify and stimulates the growth of new skin cells
Lavender Oil – Lavender oil is widely known for calming and soothing benefits
Rosemary Oil – Rosemary oil helps to invigorate and it has a mild antiseptic capabilities and thus eases congestion, puffiness and swelling of the skin
Chamomile Oil – Chamomile has a calming and soothing effect and is particularly beneficial for sensitive skin

I haven’t tried is as an all over body lotion yet cause I’m kind of a body butter junkie this time of year… I have been using it religiously for the last 6 weeks and have noticed a huge difference to the skin on my body and I’ll continue to use it ... and I’m definitely going to try it out on my scaly legs next! Pretty huh?!

The packaging is simple and does what it says on the tin… and I love that you can SEE the product… nothing worse than guessing how much you have left, plus its a pretty peachy colour!

  1. I love it, I always thought it was a gimmick but when I was pregnant it was just a Godsend, it's lovely to massage into any skin. I've always had stretchmarks anyway from weight going up & down but they didn't get any worse this time and my c-section scar healed up really well. Love it!
