Packaging of Bio Oil
Like any other skin care product, a bottle of Bio-Oil comes in a white cardboard box that also houses the instruction manual. The oil is light orange, while the inside of the bottle, but comes out transparent on spilling. The texture is very light and soft, almost like a dry oil and is not at all heavy or sticky. I loved this manual, since it has diagrams showing exactly how to apply this oil. The bottle itself is a fairly basic white transparent bottle with a white screw cap. The opening of the bottle is covered with another white lid that has a small hole in its center – perfect for a clumsy like me, who will probably knock down all the oil within 0.25 seconds of opening the bottle. Whoa, is also a stranger to this product is that even though it has an orange tint when it is in the bottle, it is completely transparent when it is poured out. Which is great because that way it does not stain the clothes. By last
Bio Oil uses and benefits
I think it is important to write the prologue of the benefits of Bio-Oil mentioning that the company itself does not claim that it can be removed completely or make any scars or stretch marks disappear completely. It simply reduces its appearance. Now that it’s out of the way, let’s see all the healthy quality this product has to offer:
I) Bio-Oil for scars
First things first, and I can not emphasize this enough, do not apply Bio-Oil on an open wound thinking that it will prevent scars. That’s just an infection about to happen. Now, going back to the main issue – the company itself claims that you can never completely eliminate a scar, simply reduce its appearance. After continuous use for a month, I noticed that a burn mark and some of my scars of chicken pox and acne scars had lightened considerably. So, yay!
Ii) Bio-Oil for pregnancy Stretches
Pregnant women around the world rely on the effect of Bio-Oil on their stretch marks. And the same goes for my sister. She started using Bio-Oil immediately after delivery and it has been found that her stretch marks have faded considerably. Her only regret is that she has not started using Bio-Oil during her pregnancy because then her stretch marks would have been even clearer now.
Iii) Bio-Oil for uneven skin tone
The only areas where I noticed that my skin tone had matched shortly after using Bio-Oil were under my eyes. I could not find much difference in any other place on the face or body.
Iv) Bio-Oil for aged skin
io-Oil works to reduce wrinkles, improving the collagen and elastin content in the skin. My mother swears by its anti-aging properties and religiously applies it to the face twice a day.
V) Bio-Oil for dry skin
The essential oils in Bio-Oil (such as lavender, chamomile, and calendula) work wonders to moisturize the skin and leave it soft and supple. My skin seemed much smoother and healthier within a week of starting my Bio-Oil treatment. He has also managed to give my skin a dewy glow, which, of course, I’m a big fan of.
- Rugged packing that is safe to travel.
- The oil has a light texture that is absorbed into the skin fairly quickly and does not leave the feeling greasy.
- It is not very fragrant, which is ideal for people with sensitive skin.
- It can even be used on cuticles to hydrate them.
- It fulfills its promise to reduce scars and stretch marks.
- Since each application requires only a couple of drops, a single bottle will last you for a long time.
- A little on the expensive side.
- Its oily formulation can make people with oily skin break up.
- Mainly available only online, which can be a disadvantage for people who prefer to shop in stores.
Bio Oil Review
Bio-Oil came into my life when there is nothing in the world seemed to be working on my skin. He had chickenpox when he was 19 years old, which meant that they left behind some very prominent scars. Add to that the stretch marks on the thighs and a scar from a childhood accident on the forehead and you can imagine what level my self-esteem was operating on.
After trying a lot of home remedies and skin creams, I had almost abandoned it when I was introduced to Bio-Oil. And what a wonder product that is! Being a total enemy of products for oily skin, I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that it was not greasy and got absorbed through the skin in a few minutes. It is also a formulation such light that I could not feel as if I had applied something (much less an oil-based product) on my face or body.
Another fear I had was that it was going to block the pores and cause it to break, but fortunately that did not happen. On the contrary, my skin feels much cleaner and even more so now. After 2 months of use, the stretch marks and scars have faded significantly. It has also worked wonders in my dark circles. My skin is now healthy and hydrated, which has resulted in a radiant complexion.it worked to make the face radiant, plump and It blew my dark circles a lot. I will definitely continue to repurchase. The only drawback I felt was its price, but considering the results it gives and the length of a bottle, I think it’s worth every penny you spend on it.
How to use Bio Oil?
- Rub a couple of drops of Bio-Oil between your fingers.
- Massage the Bio-Oil in the affected area.
