WHY I PURCHASED
I had so many people rave about this product, the fact it lightens scars, stretch marks and evens skin tone.
I had an uneven skin tone on my legs and have always felt self conscious about it so even in the heights of summer I would wear tights and was getting fed up of not being able to get them out and get a tan!
The smaller bottles (that can last appox and month with use every day) cost between £8-£12 depending on where you purchase them.
The larger bottles (can last about 2-3 months with use every day) cost between £15-£20 depending on where you purchase them
Comes in a clear bottle with a clear orange tinted oil in and a white screw cap lid.
The lid can be tricky to put back on after you have applied the oil as you have oily hands and cannot get a grip.
Expensive - It did take me a while to purchase it as it is £8 for a tiny bottle but one day there was a leaking bottle in Tesco and it was reduced so I thought i'd give it a try.
Embarrassing to buy - I must admit I was a little bit embarrassed as it is usually used by those post pregnancy and stretch marks are a not a good thing for any womens self esteem so buying it was almost admitting I had them, however you can conquer this buy purchasing online!
WHY TO BUY
I must say it works wonders, I have always been self conscious of my legs because they were blotchy and horrible but this makes them clear, free of blemishes and even in colour.
It has never stained clothes even after dressing quickly after application
The smell is delicious, almost herby.
Also it can be used as a full body moisturiser if you put a couple of drops in the bath!
I would recommend this product to anyone who has a problem with the unevenness in their skin tone, though I can't comment on the effect it has on scarring.
Summary: Good buy.
