REVIEW | BIO OIL

I'm sure many of you have heard of Bio-Oil and how amazing it is but if you haven't don't worry I shall let you know about this little magic potion. Bio-Oil claims to "To be a specialist skincare oil that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. It is also effective for ageing and dehydrated skin" lets see if this whole true and what I felt about the oil. Bio-Oil is mainly known for helping scars and stretch marks.

I bought my Bio-Oil from Bonjour but you can buy it from sasa and Watsons as well if you live in Hong Kong. You can choose from 3 different sizes. I have the 100ml bottle and it cost HK$100 as if was on offer and it usually costs HK$129.

So the funny thing is that the skin on my face is oily and the rest of my body is dry, its so annoying. So I have to use a moisturizer that will help with my dry skin and keep the skin hydrated for as long as possible. My main trick is to add Bio-Oil into the whole bottle of moisturizer and mix it with the cream. That way every time you apply moistuirzer the Bio-Oil will be mixed in well. I do this because lets be real not all body lotions and moisturizers will keep your skin hydrated all day, this way your helping your moisturizer pro long the hydration as well as adding more moisture onto your skin. I have been doing this for quite awhile now and it has helped me tackle my dry skin and keeps this skin much more hydrated than just using a moisturizer by its own. You wont get white lines when you itch because your skin is hydrated.

I have never used it on scars or stretch marks but my mother and sister have used it on their stretch marks and saw improvements. My mom says that it has helped to reduce the stretch marks. significantly. I actually noticed such a big difference as they were much lighter and in some areas almost unnoticeable. She also like me uses it with a mositurizer but she doesn't mix it like I do but takes a bit every time she applies the body lotion.

So you have 2 different views on how to use the Bio-Oil and what the results have been so far. I will continue to use my Bio-Oil with my moisturizer as it has helped my legs look shiny and stay hydrated. If you cant get Bio-Oil where you live you can use Glycerine and that will help with dry skin as well. Use it the same way or add a little every time you apply your moisturizer.

Have you used Bio-Oil before? Do you feel the same as I do or do you have an alternative that you use?
