good bye scars

Advantages: helps reduce the look of scars
Disadvantages: quite expensive
I first started using Bio oil 3 years ago after I got a really bad scar on my face from a dog bite. One of the lovely nurses in the hospital had suggested it as she had heard other people with scars say that it had worked for them.
You can get different sizes of the Bio oil so at first I just got one of the small sizes so that I could be sure I liked it. It is quite expensive I paid £10 for the small size which I thought was quite a lot but paid it as I thought it would be worth it if it worked.
The product comes in a box and then inside it is in a clear tube like bottle with a white lid. The oil looks a sort of orangy color but other than that nothing special about it. On the packaging it says the main ingredient is PurCellin Oil, vitamin A and vitamin E.
I began to use the oil straight away (my scar was a couple of months old at the time). I put the oil on my scar after my shower in the evening, the oil was nice to apply and seemed to absorb into the skin easily.
The bottle I had lasted ages as I only needed a little bit and it went quite a long way. I noticed a difference in the scar after a few weeks. The scar began to change color and go much lighter. The scar also was not as lumpy after using the bio oil it seemed to flatten the skin out around it so it not as noticeable now.
I was really pleased with how it went the scar go lighter and have continued to use it ever since. I have also found it is really useful for the skin on my knees and elbows and my heels as it keeps them moisturized and supple.
I think this oil will be useful for anyone with any scars, It also says it is good for stretch marks but I have never tried it for this reason so cannot comment on that. It is a good all round moisturizer too so definitely getting some.
Summary: Great - has many uses.
