I had previously used Bio Oil on my scars and stretch marks, but it was very expensive for just a small container and, when applied daily, it is used up very quickly. However, I found DermaV10 Rescue Oil retailing in Wilkinson's for just £3 and switched to it immediately, which I have not regretted.
The product is very similar to Bio Oil, from its function, to its scent, to its packaging. The packaging is a pleasingly simple white and orange design, with a droplet shaped logo. The bottle is a handy size for storage in a bathroom or on a dressing table. The scent is pleasant and not too intense, and the oil is not too greasy, although it must be rubbed in thoroughly to avoid residue.
The product works very well, as it soothed the skin around scars and stretch marks and also aided with the appearance of them, helping them to even with my skin tone over time. It works on wet or dry skin. I have also used it as a massage oil, to alleviate muscle pain of the back and shoulders and to aid relaxtion. The product is very good value for money, especially when compared to the price of Bio Oil or other similar products. As well as the 150ml bottle retailing for £3 in Wilkinsons, a 40ml bottle currently retails for £1 in Poundland, should you require a smaller bottle for travel purposes.
I would highly recommend this product, as it is just as good quality as its more expensive counterparts.
I have tried both Bio Oil, and Rescue Oil, and also another version sold in Boots. This one, is a lot less money and in my opinion does exactly the same as the original Bio Oil. The packaging is more or less the same, a white, cardboard box with orange writing, containing a transparent bottle full of orange oil. The bottle has a hole in the top, in which you tip the oil out, however, the oil only comes out in little drops, which is quite practical. The oil is, well, oil. Yes, it is very greasy, so I would not recommend wearing your best clothes after applying. I used the oil on stretch marks I have on my stomach and legs, and although the oil does not make the marks magically disappear (I am still waiting for that product to be released!), it does improve the look of the marks. The marks appear to be less visible, and the skin around the area is softer and more supple. I would recommend applying the oil after showering or bathing, as it does tend to soak into your skin a little bit quicker. Overall, I am satisfied with the oil, and although I would not swear by it, I would recommend this product if you are on a tight budget and are wanting a short term self-confidence boost.
i didnt want to but bio oil because its very expensive and i wasnt surei wanted to spemnd that much as im on a tight budget i thought id give it s go...i've only just started using it but im already happy with it, my boyfriend has some scars on his back so i rubbed it into them myself i wanted to see if it worked and i felt like they looked less noticeable which wade me happy because my stretch makes are on my bum so hard to see myself it feels nice on this skin, smell isnt harsh. but anyway i think its a good product give it a go and dont spend your money on bio oil at least try this first. :}
Rescue oil is one of my favourite skin care products,I have been using it for over two years and am now down to the last few drops in my current 75ml bottle. I started using it when a friend recomended using evening primrose oil on the face so I had a look round at skin care products in our local Morrisons . Most things had tons of ingredients with scary long names rescue oil drew my attention because of having only a few,mostly natural , ingredients and an excellent price of around 2.40pounds. It comes in a simple white and orange box with a tear logo,the container itself is a clear bottle which shows off the rich amber colour liquid. Its claims to fame are that it helps aging skin ,helps clear scar tissue and prevent stretch marks also sun damaged and dry skin,it can be used as a massage oil and even put a couple of drops in your bath water. A real all rounder! I definitely qualify in the sun damaged and aging skin area being one of the oldest boat stewardesses around and trying to stave off the blonde and beautiful young competition by using age and cunning.
Ingredients - sweet almond oil, made from the dried kernel of ;you guessed it ! sweet almonds, this light oil is an emoillient which softens and smooths the skin.
Peach kernel oil- another light oil it revitalises and soothes inflamed skin
it contains Vitamin E and A, both good for skin.
Evening Primrose oil- made from the seeds of the lovely yellow flower it contains the fatty acid GLA (gamma linolenic acid ) which controls inflamation
Its hard to go wrong with these kind of ingredients. I use it at night always on my face and hands and on legs and arms if they are looking hard used ,particularly in summer. Put a few drops in the palm of your hands from the smal hole in the topof the bottle which stops you squishing it out of control, and smooth on .On my face it gives it an immediate fresh dewy look (sound like an advert!) but this does wear off as it sinks in ,shame! Wait a few moments for it to sink in ,dont jump straight into bed or you will slither about, give it a chance.
I feel it really does help my skin which does take a battering from the sea air. I have even used it on my dog who loves to sun bathe and last year had a dry ,sore nose ,a few drops of oil gently rubbed in and within a week Jess had a resplendent happy nose again ,so, must be good if I use it on my dog!
Before I tried Bio-Oil, I was sorely disappointed by this cheaper version too, although I suppose with this product it could be expected!
Rescue Oil comes in almost the same package, colour and design as Bio-Oil - an amber-orange liquid in a plastic bottle with a very small hole in which to drip the liquid out of, packaged in a white cardboard box for sale. I think it priced at around £2 for 50ml, or thereabouts, but in my experience it doesn't matter how expensive it is, it still doesn't work.
So the first time I tried this I was hoping for miracles - the scars I used it on are still noticeable now, even after using this then Bio-Oil then letting them 'grow out' as I say. So it didn't make much difference to me really! It didn't smell of anything, it left my skin feeling oily and greasy, and as I'm sitting here right now with my scars still on display it also wasn't very effective doing its job!
It may just be my luck with these sorts of miracle products, but I think I've just about given up on these 'remedies' that claim to solve all skin problems - I'm managing my conditions with moisturisers instead, they're a lot easier and cheaper!
Most people will have heard of Bio Oil, and what it does, but there is a cheaper, lesser known version I have found called Rescue Oil. This is basically a store own brand version Bio Oil from a company called Health Point.
I found Rescue Oil in the new Poundland store that has recently opened in my local town, and I thought seeing as I have some new surgery scars that I wouldn't mind fading a little, why not give it a go? Heck for a pound its truly worth a try right? This Rescue Oil comes in a 100ml bottle, funnily enough for a pound lol. The bottle comes in a white box with orange logos and printing on it.
I found that Rescue Oil smells exactly the same as Bio Oil and has the exact same texture to the oil, not that I think many different textures are available in the oil world! The oil is really easy to use, just shake a couple of drops onto the affected area, and gently massage in for about a minute. I expected this to be somewhat greasy, but it wasn't and my skin absorbed it quite well, with no adverse reactions. I have been using it a small while now, about 3-4 weeks and have found the scars to be fading slightly, so I think it is working, and also the skin around my scars tends to not be so tight any more, so bonus there!
You can also add a few drops of Rescue Oil to your bath water, which I think is brilliant as it helps to sooth any sore skin effected by conditions like eczema. It really does work well. You can use Rescue Oil to help with the treatment (or prevention in some cases) of Scars, Eczema, Stretch Marks, Dry Skin, Ageing Skin and much more. For the price, Rescue Oil is an amazing product, and like Bio Oil it will take a short while for you to see results, but if you keep on at it, you will see a difference, so I recommend this product to everyone, pop down to poundland and grab yourself a few bottles, this stuff is really worth it.
I buy this product quite alot. I bought bio oil first and didn't get good results so i thought i'd try rescue oil. The bottles of Resuce Oil are quite small but the quantity is more than enough to last you a good couple of weeks or months depending on how much you use. I buy mine from homebargains for only £1.95 (sometimes less).
The smell is gorgeous and refreshing. I usually use it on my body but from time to time, I will use it on my face in the night and in the morning my skin is silky smooth. It's great to use in the bath if you don't have to time to moisturise.
Rescue oil is an oil based product with natural Ingredients:
Evening Primrose oil, Almond oil, Peach kernel oil and Vitamin E. all are widely known for there health and skin benefits.
Rescue Oil can help the following conditions:
Ageing Skin, Scar Tissue, Blemished Skin, Treatment & Prevention of stretch marks, Before and after pregnancy massage oil, After sun treatment, Dry dehydrated skin conditions. (with continued usage)
I would recommend rescue oil to anyone of any age and also to anyone who is on a budget its an amazing product.
This is well and truly a miracle product and I never thought I would say that. For scar tissue, uneven skin tone, a therapeutic bath oil, before and after pregnancy massage oil, for aging skin, blemished skin, after sun treatment and dry skin.
What is it?----
Looking at it, I won't lie, you would think it is a Bio Oil knock off. My local Wilkinsons was selling Bio Oil for £4.99, my skin was so very dry and I have an uneven skin tone. So I decided to give it a go as everywhere you go Bio Oil is about £9.99+. I got half way down my bottle and decided to get some more in case the £4.99 price was just a temporary thing. I got to Wilkinsons and it had gone! No where to be found on the shelves, no empty section, no lonely price tag. So I thought that was that. All I could see in its place was this Rescue Oil. I reluctantly picked it up. The box states 'Helps improve the appearance of scars and stretchmarks'. I used it once and did not care for it, no idea why. I started to look for reviews on this product but expecting no success, boy was I wrong! EVERY SINGLE REVIEW so far on Dooyoo is five stars. When I checked Amazon, the one review on there was five stars, and all but one on Ciao is five stars. The other is four stars but the review itself does not say anything bad about the product warranting one star less, even in the Disadvantages section she has put 'None for me'. I started using my forgotten bottle again then dashed out to buy another bottle. Come payday I will be buying around three more bottles and I am in the process of writing a praise letter to the company.
**"Rescue Oil is a specialist blend of natural oils which soothe and improve the appearance of the skin and nails. With regular use Rescue Oil assists in restoring the skin's natural moisture balance and the rejuvenation of wrinkled sagging skin. It is extremely effective on scar tissue, stretchmarks and numerous other skin conditions. Rescue Oil is safe for all ages and is easily absorbed making it ideal for use as massage oil or therapeutic bath oil. Rescue Oil contains a combination of Vitamin E, Evening Primrose Oil, Almond Oil and Peach Kernel Oil"**
I am currently 5ml from finishing my first bottle. I am rationing it! This product is concentrated 18m, dark orange in colour and from the look of the ingredients, it contains no water which is a good thing. I do not like the thought of my products being watered down whilst being under the impression that I am getting a lot for my money. Plus the presence of water allows bacteria to grow much easier and faster. The absence of water acts as a preservative.
Another reviewer states not to expect results until you are almost finishing your bottle which I support 100%, as I said I have about three drops left in my first bottle and I am seeing a faint difference but it is very noticeable (quite contradictory I know). This product does not have a huge effect on deep, fresh stretchmarks. I have some on the back of my leg and I see very very little difference if any. Though I did not expect this. I believe that I does help prevent stretchmarks because when I get back home everyday I can still feel my very soft moisturised legs and stomach, and moisturised skin usually means elastic-like. You can pull on a single strand of hair a lot longer and with more force when it is wet than when it is dry can you not?
The directions state to gently massage into the problem area. The key word here is massage. Massage prevents you just having wet and greasy skin after slicking a handful on your body, and it aids absorbency thus helping you get more from a little amount of this. There is a little plastic disc fixed over the opening of the bottle that has a pin prick in the top. It allows you to ration the product and it really helps avoid spillage and waste. You only need a couple of drops for even the bigger stretchmarked areas. One bottle of this has lasted me two and a half weeks. The smell is indescribable, nothing like it really. The closest word I can find really is *oaky*. Just out of paranoia I give it about five minutes before putting clothes on but you can put clothes on straight away and also without fear of the product staining or seeping through clothes. If you move your fingers lightly over the treated area, it just feels moisturised, but if you rub two treated areas together (i.e your lower legs or thighs) it will feel greasy. This is only when I sleep of course, some PJ bottoms will sort that. I treat my lower stomach, my hips, the sides and back of my thighs then the back of my calves. This takes me literally five minutes in a morning and five minutes just before I go to bed, and my 75ml bottle has lasted me almost three weeks. Not bad for £2!
The difference I see in what were my older but still purpley/red stretchmarks is that the colour has faded dramatically to a pinky colour. It seems to have stopped the shine on my healed stretchmarks so they do not shine white in the light anymore. Though the circular stretchmark patch on my lower left leg seems to be completely disappearing without trace.
Even if you do not have stretchmarks I would very much recommend this without hesitation to prevent stretchmarks, as a body moisturiser, for scar tissue, uneven skin tone and aging skin.
Price & Availability----
Varies; at Poundland (where I have never actually seen it) it costs £1 (duh). I myself bought it at Wilkinsons for £1.99 (75ml). You can find it in Savers and on Amazon and eBay. It is scattered all over the place and I am glad it is. It SHOULD be in Boots at the same price. It is available in 40ml bottles but I only seem to find this size on reviews and never on online stores or shops. I have a 75ml bottle and I have seen 150ml bottles being sold on eBay in bundles and on Amazon as single bottles.
Logo is a dark orange circle with a lighter orange droplet shape inside it. A clear plastic bottle with a white screw off top sits in a long, predominantly white, rectangular box nice and snug. No packaging wasted here. A circular part of the box has been cut out at the front which shows you the product inside it.
Open a flap at the top and take out the bottle.
SAFE TO USE FOR ALL AGES.
For those wondering, my stretchmarks were still quite red/purple to start with and I also have healed pearly white stretchmarks.
After being on steroids for 4 years I piled on a lot of weight very quickly resulting in stretch marks even though I was using coco butter daily. My Stomach and legs look as though I have been clawed by a tiger and I am very paranoid when these are visible. When I was in my local savers shop the a few months back, I saw Rescue oil which claimed to help reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks so I picked up a bottle to give it ago.
This product came in a white box with orange oil marks as design which is bold and stands out which is why I noticed it on the shelf as at the time I wasn't actually looking for this product. When you open the box there is a small 75ml plastic bottle with an orange solution inside. The directions for use are on the box as well as the bottle so you don't have to keep the packaging for reference although the bottle does get very greasy so I would recommend you keep the box for the storage of the bottle. I purchased this from Savers Centre for only £1.99, I also saw it in the pound shop the other day.
I tend to apply the solution before I go to bed as it is an oil so it is greasy, so I just pop my pyjamas on straight after. You only need a tiny amount as oil tends to go a lot further than cream. You massage the oil into the affected area every day. It does say that you can add a few drops to your bath but I preferred to apply it directly to the skin.
Prunus Persicia Oil, Isopropyl Myristate, Sweet Almond oil, Evening Primrose oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Parfum.
I have been using this rescue oil for two months on my stretch marks now, and as I have such a problem with them my partner took a before and after picture as he thought I would think there was no difference. Looking at the pictures after two months my stretch marks that were not as deep have had a big visible difference, unfortunately there were no difference to the deep stretch marks. With the smaller stretch marks you can only see them slightly now. I will carry on with the oil as I am pleased with the results I got and hope the results improve. My dad also has been using this for 4 weeks after his carpal tunnel operation. His scar has improved so much on his hand you can barely notice that there is a scar there. In my opinion this is a brilliant effective product especially on new scars. The bottle lasts a long time as I have still got a quarter of the bottle left after two months. I would highly recommend this product for people with scars and stretch marks.
This product is cheap and effective I didnt realise these to wrods could go in the same sentence!!x
A really nasty broken collarbone meant that i was left with a really nasty scar across my shoulder. I wasnt bothered about the scar, i just really wanted it to heal as effectively as possible and i didnt want to be left with restricted movement - a scar means that your skin tissue isnt as flexible as it once was.
The doctor recommended bio oil - but at over £10 in my local supermarket i was reluctant to spend money on something that i was unsure of. A quick pop into my local Wilkinsons revealed this - and at £1.99 it was much more of a price that i was willing to take a punt at.
Inside the bottle is basically what it says on the tin - its an oil, feeling not to dissimilar to baby oil. I smeared it on to my red scar tissue and repeated for several weeks.
I was really impressed with the results! The redness reduced and the scar became much less angry. It healed really well and now, 12 months on, i still smear it will rescue oil and i have never suffered from restricted movement.
This product isnt just for scar tissue though - my wife used it on her stretchmarks and was pleased with the results, and my niece uses it on her acne scars (not for active zits, but for the red marks left just after they have gone - put this on of an evening and it really helps to reduce the redness).
My wife lost alot of weight after giving birth and wasnt happy with the tightness of her skin - she applies this to her stomach and says it has made a real improvement!
It works as a great moisturiser - my wife uses if on her hands and i use it on my feet after running - helps to stop hard cracked heels caused by your feet constantly impacting against the road.
The packaging states that it is a special blend of natural oils - but i have no idea what these are. It doesn't have a smell (good or bad) so i cant identify them myself either - but whatever they are... it works!
Got skin issues? For £1.99 its worth giving this a go!!!
Rescue Oil - 40 ml
** WHAT IS IT **
It is an oil which includes natural oils that will improve the appearance of skin and nails. When using it regularly it will moisturise skin, help the appearance of ageing skin, scar tissue and blemished skin. It will help prevent stretch marks and if they do appear it will help the appearance of them.
You can massage the oil into your skin or put a few drops into your bath. It's easy to use as it absorbs into your skin easily. It is safe for all ages to use.
** PACKAGING **
Rescue oil comes in a white cardboard box, which has the Rescue logo on the front of the box. Also there is a small circular hole in the box so you can see the bottle of Rescue oil.
On either side it gives you more detailed information on the product in orange writing. To me the packaging looks very similar to Bio oil.
The Rescue oil itself is a see-through orange liquid, which comes in a clear plastic bottle so you can see the orange liquid. The bottle has a clear label on it with the Rescue oil logo on it in white writing. There is small white writing giving detailed information on the product also on this label.
It has a white screw off lid. Once you take the lid off the top of the bottle it has a plastic cover over it which has a small hole in it. This means that you can manage the oil easier when you are trying to get it out of the bottle and it won't go everywhere.
** INGREDIENTS **
Prunus Persica (Peach Kernel) oil, Isopropyl Myristate, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) oil, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Parfum, CI 47000, CI 2600
It contains Vitamin E, which is good for the skin, because it is important for healthy skin and will help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It can treat skin diseases or scars. Vitamin E will also help prevent skin cancer because it protects you against the sun.
Evening Primrose oil is good at rejuvenating skin and will help wrinkles. It can improve firmness and elasticity. Plus it can lighten the dark circles around your eyes.
Almond oil will help dry flaky skin leaving your skin more moisturised.
Peach Kernel oil contains vitamins, which will nourish your skin.
So as you can see there are lots of great ingredients in this oil that will benefit your skin.
** PRODUCT **
The Rescue oil is an orange liquid, which you can massage into your skin easily or have a therapeutic bath using the oil.
The liquid is not thick in consistency and feels very greasy once you put it on your skin (this is to be expected as it is an oil). The good thing is that it does absorb into your skin rather quickly.
The smell of the oil is nice and relaxing yet not overpowering. It isn't a strong smell and doesn't linger for ages, which I feel, is a good thing.
** HOW TO USE **
Put as much as you require onto your skin and massage in circular motions until it has absorbed. This may take a while if you put too much on in one go. Only put small amounts on to start and then add more if needed.
Pay particular attention to areas of your skin that are dry or dehydrated. Also you could apply it to areas of skin that have been damaged (including scars or sunburn).
If you want to use the oil in the bath put a few drops into running water while you are running your bath. The soak in the bath for as long as you wish and it will leave you feeling relaxed.
** MY OPINION **
This oil cost me £1 from Poundland and I think it is the best bargain I have found in ages! The Rescue oil is just as good as Bio oil yet it is a lot cheaper to buy. I am currently pregnant and the Rescue oil is helping prevent stretch marks as whenever my skin feels tight this oil leaves my skin feeling more moisturised and soft.
When I use it in the bath it helps me relax easily and gives a pleasant smell. I also find that this oil helps my problem skin as I have combination skin (its dry yet I am still prone to spots). I find that using small amounts of this oil on my skin helps the dry areas and I don't get spots. It also doesn't react badly with my sensitive skin. I feel that this oil does everything it says.
It helps the look of my skin and reduces the appearance of scars however this will take patience and you will have to use the Rescue Oil on a daily basis to see any result. It will take time so you will need to have patience (you can't expect miracles). You should see some sort of results after you have used up your entire 40ml bottle.
I will definitely be buying this oil again, as it is very good value and a bargain at £1. It is worth while trying this oil and I would recommend it to everyone.
Review of Health Point Rescue Oil
I am reviewing the 40ml size, the product is also available in a 75ml package.
Rescue oil is a blend of natural oils designed to sooth and improve the condition of skin. It can be either massaged into the skin or added to bath water.
Rescue Oil can help the following conditions:
- Ageing Skin
- Scar Tissue
- Blemished Skin
- Treatment & Prevention of stretch marks
- Before and after pregnancy massage oil
- After sun treatment
- Dry dehydrated skin conditions
Health Point Rescue Oil is presented in a simple white cardboard box with an orange tear-drop logo and the product name,, ingredients and usage advice in an orange font. The box is small, measuring just 4.25 ins x 2ins. Inside the box is your bottle containing 40ml of rescue oil. It is a very simple, clear plastic container with a white screw top cap containing the orange coloured oil. The oil is accessed through a small hole in the bottle neck.
Both outer packaging and the plastic bottle are recyclable where facilities exist.
**Ingredients and Warnings**
The blend of oils are as follows, Evening Primrose oil, Almond oil, Peach kernel oil and Vitamin E.
These ingredients are all known for their benefits to skin and have long been used in the cosmetic industry.
Rescue Oil is safe to use on all age groups.
Naturally anyone sensitive to any of these ingredients should exercise caution.
Rescue oil should not be ingested.
**Scent, Texture and Usage**
The scent of the oil is somewhat distinctive, not strong or unpleasant, but rather hard to describe. The first scent I can detect is a feint peach-like aroma, this mixed with an underlying almond fragrance makes for a mild and pleasantly stimulating oil.
The oil itself is very silky in texture, it is quickly absorbed into the skin and leaves no sticky residue, unlike some oils. The oil is accessed via a small hole in the plastic disc in the neck of the bottle. It is thick enough not to pour out, yet thin enough to flow easily. I have used the Rescue oil on all areas of my body, including my face. I usually rub a little Rescue Oil into my arms, legs and heels after a shower and I have to say the skin texture has improved noticeably since I discovered this oil.
The manufacturer states that some scars may need several months of use before a visible improvement is noticed. I found the improvement of my own skin was much quicker than this, but of course this depends on skin type and the severity of the scarring you wish to treat!
I have used Rescue Oil on my face, I have some mild facial scarring, consisting of thread like scars on my forehead following a road accident, brown pigmentation marks (due to age and sun damage) and along with most other women in their 50's, the dreaded lines and wrinkles! Rescue Oil isn't a miracle worker, but it has helped reduce the appearance of all these conditions.
My mother who is in her late 70's, suffers with a skin condition, acute cellulitis, on her legs. This is a distressing condition where the skin on her shins has become very thin and almost transparent in appearance. The main treatment for this antibiotics, when the skin breaks and becomes infected, with moisturising creams/lotions for keeping the skin supple when it is unbroken. She has spent a fortune on various moisturisers with little effect, however Rescue Oil has helped her keep the skin in a manageable condition.
**Availability and Cost**
This is where Rescue Oil comes into it's own! I have long been a user of the well known brand 'Bio Oil' and had been paying in the region of £8-£9 for a small bottle. Rescue Oil is a fraction of the cost and the ingredients are virtually identical. I am currently buying Rescue Oil from Poundland for £1 for a 40ml bottle! I have seen it in other High street outlets at various prices, although Poundland's has to be the best price around!
Health Point Rescue Oil is available online from www.amazon.co.uk for £2.04 or from www.auravita.com for £1.95.
**My Thoughts and Conclusion**
OK, I admit it, I'm a cheapskate, I will always seek out the lowest possible price and get a real buzz out of finding a bargain! Seriously, I live on a very tight budget and simply don't have a great deal of spare cash, so to find a product that actually works, costs very little and is as good as, if not better, than something I was using previously (Bio Oil), is a real bonus to me.
I would recommend Rescue Oil to anyone, it is easy and pleasant to use, helps a wide range of skin problems and makes a great all round skin conditioner at a real bargain basement price.
Thank you for reading.

NB My reviews may be found on other sites under the same user name--brittle1906.
To be truthful I didn't actually mean to buy rescue oil. I in fact lost my bio oil and went to buy more, when I got home I opened the box and found out someone had put the rescue oil into the bio oil box.
Which of course I wasn't happy because I paid £7 for something that should have been £1.99. But I decided to use it anyway since I heard it was exact same ingredients in it but a cheaper brand.
What it looks like and what's in it:
It is an orange colour with
Peach Kernel oil
Sweet Almond oil
Evening Primrose oil
What it helps:
Ageing Skin, Scar Tissue, Blemished Skin, Dry skin, After sun treatment, Before and after pregnancy massage oil and stretch marks - can also use while pregnant to prevent stretch marks.
You can also but a few drops in your bath.
I've been using this for say a month or two now for stretch marks on my calf of course it doesn't take them away fully it will just reduce the appearance - meaning the colour of it making them so the same colour as skin well a shade lighter.
Mine are still red and some may have faded but I can't notice much of a difference when I'm standing about.
To be truthful I think it worked faster than the bio oil or is just a coincidence.
For strech marks you use it for a minimum of three months
Sadly, I've not noticed that much of a difference. I will be continuing to use this though.
I would recommend you buy this instead of bio oil now because it's cheaper and works the same with the same ingredients.
Rescue Oil does exactly what it says on the tin!
I noticed this for sale in my local poundshop and thought it was worth a go as most similar products cost a hell of a lot more than this.
Rescue Oil is a 'specialist blend of natural oils which sooth and improve the appearance of skin and nails'.
It is suitable for use on scar tissue, stretch marks, ageing skin, blemishes, before or after pregnancy treatment, after sun treatment, dry or dehydrated skin conditions, bath oil.
It is an oil (obviously!) that is infused with vitamin E, Evening Primrose Oil, Almond Oil and Peach Kernel Oil - all well known for their healing properties.
Sounds good! But does it work?
Yes! It really is great, you need to apply it regularly to see the full effects but it does really help to soften skin and reduce any imperfections.
My son recently had chicken pox and was left with a small scar on his forehead. He is way too gorgeous to have anything ruining his beautiful little face so I thought I'd try this as it was the only product that said that it was suitable for children.
You just shake out a couple of drops and rub it in wherever it is needed.
I have been using it on him for a good few days now and you can really see an improvement, not a great deal but it is definitely starting to fade, where as before, it looked like it was there to stay.
I have also used it on any dry skin I have such as my knees and elbows and now they are as soft as any other part of my body. I don't usually use oils as I don't like the greasiness but I will carry on with this one as it is a great product at an even better price.
I bought mine for £1 for 40ml, you may also be able to find it for this price. If not, you can find it in most supermarkets or chemists or even on ebay for maybe a quid more - Bargain!
I bought this because I have used a similar more expensive product before and this seemed to promise the same things.
WHAT IT DOES
This is apparently a specialist blend of natural oils which will soothe and improve the appearance of skin and nails. If it is used regularly, it will help to restore the skins moisture balance and will help wrinkled and sagging skin. The oil contains Vitamin E, evening primrose oil almond oil and peach kernel oil.
WHEN SHOULD I USE IT?
The oil should be used for:
*Treatment and prevention of stretch marks
*Before and after pregnancy massage oil
* dry dehydrated skin
*Therapeutic bath oil
It is safe for all ages, and gives no indication that it must not be used on young children, so seems a useful product
PRODUCT AND PACKAGING
The oil comes in a box with all the instructions and uses clearly listed and inside the box is a small plastic 75ml bottle. The oil looks as though it is going to be orange and when I give it a squeeze and some of the oil comes out of the small hole, it is very slightly orange tinged, but thankfully when applied to the skin, it appears clear. There is no definite smell, just something very slightly floral but nothing that will conflict with any other perfumes.
The oil itself is very easily absorbed into the skin, and leaves no sticky residue and when used as a bath oil, skin is left feeling very soft and hydrated, although it does wash off and the oil isn't left clinging to my skin.
HOW TO USE IT...
The product should be massaged gently into the area which requires treatment or if used as a bath oil, a few drops should be dropped under runnning water. I would advise here that a lot really does go a long way so don't be tempted to pour out lots and lots or you will be left feeling greasy
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
I found mine in my local bargain store and it cost only £1.99, so it really was a bargain
The website, www.mbstore.co.uk has lots of inflrmation about different products, and it can be bought online but at £1.99 it's more expensive than I got it.
I had originally bought this as a way to keep my skin hydrated when on holiday because I like to add more oily products to make sure i don't peel. It does work really well on dehydrated skin, and when massaged into the face I then rub it into my hands, leaving hands feeling soft and hydrated. I have added it to the bath and when on holiday, massaged it into Little Miss, so can vouch that it does no harm for youngsters.
An excellent, bargain product which has numerous uses not only for stretch marks and pregnancy. I tend to think that for me its best use is to keep dehydrated skin soft and supple.
