Winters call for skincare! Sorry if you just caught me saying it again 😛 but I am justtt not getting over with pampering my skin. The product that I am going to review today is Bio-oil, it’s known all over the world for its miraculous formula that works effectively on reducing stretch marks. I have old white stretch marks which it can’t work on, thus I am not reviewing it on that basis, but as a part of my daily skin care. Keep reading to know what I have to say on this-Price- INR 450/- for 60 mlAbout- Bio‑Oil is a specialist skincare oil that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. It is also effective for aging and dehydrated skin. Bio‑Oil has won 253 skincare awards and has become the No.1 selling scar and stretch mark product in 20 countries since its global launch in 2002.Ingredients-My Take on Bio Oil- This comes in a small sized transparent bottle which is very handy. It’s made up of plastic and has white colored screw cap. I have dropped it several times but it hasn’t damaged even a bit. On the mouth of bottle, a plastic stopper with a hole is placed to control the flow of oil. The oil looks light orangish when in bottle but once taken out, it looks absolutely clear. I have no idea what to relate it’s fragrance with, but I really like it 🙂 .Well, to be honest I picked this up for its stretch mark fading claims that those advertisements on TV and internet were making. After making my purchase, I got to know it works on only reddish/purplish marks that are on development phase and not on mature ones that are white in color. So, I have been using it as a skincare product since then! It’s light-weight oil which feels very light on skin and gets into it very well. It doesn’t feel sticky on skin like other oils. I have used it on face, but honestly I don’t like it much there. It’s very good for moisturizing whole body and keeps my skin soft and smooth, I replaced it with my body lotion for a week, it really left me impressed with the moisture it succeeded to provide. It manages to keep me moisturized for the whole day. I find it best to use on damp skin as it takes less efforts in getting absorbed. Make sure bio oil sinks into skin completely before you put on your clothes to avoid oil stains. If you are experiencing itchiness caused by dry skin, slap on some bio-oil on that part and give your skin the happy feeling. Your skin will thank you later! Sadly it contains mineral oil which doesn’t suit everyone. It’s priced high considering the quantity, but if you are experiencing stretch marks which are on the making I will suggest you to give it a try! It’s used by millions everyday and they find it very convincing. It couldn’t help me get rid of mature marks but this surely makes it to be my favorite for skin deep moisture 🙂 .
Overall, I find it good ! It's known all over the world for its miraculous results of fading away stretch marks; However, couldn't help me in dealing with old/mature stretch marks I got while growing up. It serves as an excellent moisturizer, you should give it a try.
