Review: Bio-Oil

After all the hype, here are my thoughts on Bio-Oil...

Some facts...
  • Bio-Oil has been proven to have beauty benefits aswell as the known benefits for stretch marks.
  • Many celebrities have tried and love this product:
 Kim Kardashian "It prevents wrinkles around my eyes and stretch marks over my body"

 Tess Daly "One of my can't live-without beauty staples is this super-hydrating Bio-Oil..I wouldn't be without it"

  •  Bio-Oil is preservative-free and is not tested on animals *bonus!*

I have used Bio-Oil as part of my skin care regime for a few months now. I wanted to give it a proper trial and see what my thoughts were. I have used it on my face and all over my body. Once a week, I applied it to my face (a thin layer) in place of my regular moisturiser. Then about twice a week I apply it all over my skin, after a shower. 

It can be used for stretch marks, dehydrated skin (especially during winter), aged skin, scars and uneven skin tones. 
Bio-Oil contains Vitamin A and E and absorbs really easily (bonus for when you're in a rush). 
Bio-Oil absorbs easily and dries within a minute. It is non-greasy, which to be honest, I was worried about! A friend of mine who was away in the sun for some time, and tans very easily, uses it after her showers or baths to prolong her tan, and she told me it has worked for her. Her tan has lasted and she is home 10 weeks!

Bio-Oil can also be used on cracked or dry elbows or on your cuticles. 

For best results Bio-Oil should be applied twice daily for a minimum of 3 months.

Bio-Oil, for sure, has become a staple in my beauty and skincare regime! If you are interested in trying some out for yourself, it is available from Dunnes Stores, Superquinn, Boots, and pharmacies nationwide.
