Bio -0il expensive moisturiser
Member Name: bunny1010
Advantages: nice smell, hydrates skin
Disadvantages: costly stretch marks remain
I bought Bio-oil about a year ago I paid about £6.99 for a 60ml bottle which I found to be rather expensive, but I had heard so much hype over this product I considered it worth it. As the saying goes you get what you pay for so I hoped this would be the case this product although at heart I'm a bargain hunter.
The product came in a white box with orange writing and If I remember rightly there was a leaflet inside the box, unfortunately both have been discarded, I must stop throwing everything out as it would have come in handy with this review writing. Anyways the bottle itself is see throw so you know exactly how much you left and has a white screw top.On the bottle they calm to to be specialist in skincare and that the bio-oil helps with the following;
uneven skin tone
The reason I purchased this product was to get rid or to improve the appearance of my stretch marks, which bothered me at the time but not now, I used it daily for a period of nine months and it had no effect on my stretch marks what so ever, they look and feel the same. I do however love the smell and find it really does hydrated the skin and increase softness in the area applied. I basically found this to be a very expensive moisturiser. Applying is easy it guilds on and has lovely consistency as its an oil it never completely absorbs away and you can feel the oiliness on your skin hours later. This is why I wouldn't advise to use on the face in the day but rather before going to bed at night to avoid a greasy face look.
In conclusion I wouldn't buy this product again as it didn't forfill the purpose I bought it for which was to help with the appearance of my stretch marks there has been no change. I also feel that I gave this product enough time to work its magic, but nothing. As I didn't buy this product to help with scars, aging skin or uneven skin tone I cant say how effective it is in this manner. But as stretch marks go this product is not for me and after nine months of applying this product religiously and being out of pocket by £6.99 Ive decided just to accept my stretch marks there part of me any always will be so I shan't waste any more money trying to change them.
Summary: I wouldn't recommend this product.
