This week's product up for review is, in my opinion, extremely underrated in the old beauty blogosphere:
the miracle stuff that is Bio Oil, £8.49 for 60ml.
What Bio-Oil say...
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 85 skincare awards and has become the No.1 selling scar and stretch mark product in 11 countries since its global launch in 2002. The Bio‑Oil formulation is a combination of plant extracts and vitamins suspended in an oil base. It contains the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil™, which changes the formulation’s overall consistency, making it light and non-greasy. This ensures that the goodness contained in the vitamins and plant extracts is easily absorbed.
I bought this when my Liz Earle Superskin Concentrate oil (review here) ran out. I loved the Liz Earle oil but was at the airport on my way to Munich & needed a quick fix so thought I'd try this. I have to say this is without a doubt the best product I have ever used, it's magical. I used to suffer from really dry skin on my neck, which also meant my neck was quite red, & within 2 or 3 days of using Bio Oil the discolouration had completely gone & the dry skin was once again soft & smooth. I genuinely can't believe how well this worked & since using it my skin has stayed moisturised. I haven't tried this on stretch marks but if it works half as well as it does on dry skin it's worth its weight in big shiny pieces of gold!
I would give this oil ☆☆☆☆☆+
It is truly brilliant + (& perhaps even better) it's really affordable. I used such a small amount on my neck & the dinky little bottle makes it perfect for travelling. The way the packaging is designed means that when you tip the bottle only a little bit comes out so there's no mess & you only get the amount you need - perfect. If you suffer from dry skin, do not hesitate, buy this product!
