Uses of Bio oil

It’s not just stretch marks that bio oil has been claimed to cure. I have seen reviews that it works for other skin inflammation like;

  • Stretch marks
  • Acne scars
  • For skin lightening
  • For hair (I do not know how true this is)
  • For aging skin
  • And for flaky skin

BEFORE PREGNANCY

I do have stretch marks before Genesis and I tried so many things before someone recommended BIO OIL as an effective remedy. I saw changes but not as much as I was expecting or I had high expectations. I know some things takes time but then I didn’t maintain my weight. I actually stopped after a while and I guess I wasn’t patient enough then to let it work.

PREGNANCY EXPERIENCE

Truth is, I don’t think any woman can escape stretch marks during pregnancy. The stretching of the skin and constant itching of the belly usually results into stretch marks. I have seen a lot of instagram peeps with zero stretch Marks during pregnancy and I must tell you, airbrush pictures are real 😊 but however some products can reduce the intensity of stretch Mark’s. Nothing worked for my stretched marks during pregnancy and to be honest, I wasn’t bothered because I really didn’t have much patient then to try anything more.

AFTER PREGNANCY

I have tried BIO OIL for my stretch marks but honestly, I haven’t seen much changes thought and I must say that I only use it whenever I remember. I think consistency is the key to getting a good result at things. I wasnt consistent and at some point I stopped.

PROS

  • It’s packaging is very nice. It comes in a pink bottle and white cover.
  • It comes in sizes
  • It’s fragrance is mild and good for sensitive noses
  • It can be used by all skin types
  • It’s non greasy and absorbs quickly into the skin
  • It works when used consistently

CONS

  • If you have super oily skin, I don’t think it’s advisable
  • It’s a little expensive though

My Take on Bio Oil generally

It works when used consistently. I have seen the result on some and it really reduced the intensity of the marks. It has no side effect when used for a long or short period of time, so your skin is absolutely safe because it is made from natural ingredients.

Will I use this product again?

Yes I’m going to get in a small size and try again with much consistency and hope for an amazing result with positive altitude 😊

Oh yes, I will definitely recommend it to someone.
