I have always been curious about this oil but never got down to trying it properly until now. Bio-Oil is the #1 best selling facial moisturising lotion on Amazon.com & I can see why. Since its launch in 2002, this oil has won over 126 skincare awards for its multi-purpose benefits. It is not only clinically proven and dermatologist recommended for scars and stretch marks, it states that it aids in softening and smoothening of the skin while reducing the appearance of uneven skintone.
Let’s first talk about the bottle design. First of all, it is made of plastic so there’s no need to fear that this will slip through your fingers and send the precious oil all over your parquet (although this might give your floor a good varnish). Next, the orifice reducer design allows a controlled amount of oil to be dispensed. A little of the oil goes a long way & the orifice reducer allows easy dabbing onto the skin. I simply dap the oil around my body & massage into my skin. It is so convenient!
I have been using Bio-Oil every single day after my shower. I massage the oil around my calves, elbows, inner thighs (for cellulite) & arms where I feel are the driest. Whatever remains on my palms, I will massage it to my hair ends. For about 3 months now, I notice my skin & hair feeling healthy and hydrated & it gives a gentle glow! What’s most impressive is how my cellulite have lightened! They are still there but they aren’t as obvious as it used to be. I must stress that I use Bio-Oil quite liberally on my cellulite areas. Seeing the improvement on my cellulite on my thigh area, I will continue to use Bio-Oil on potential areas (stomach, thigh, hips, & breast) to prevent any possible cellulite forming. This is definitely a must have for pregnant ladies!
