Hello beauties, 

Can you guess the product above....? Too easy.........BIO-OIL!

Fun Bio-Oil Fact: 
Bio-Oil is MOST recommended by doctors for any appearance of stretch marks, scars and stretch marks because it's formulated with skin-friendly ingredients. It's definitely a trustworthy brand for your skin. 

I'm sure you've ALL heard of Bio-Oil...I mean how can you not know? It's purely made for those with a busy life schedule and it's natural to face many of life's challenges such stress. This can weigh us down in many ways. Some may not be happy about their weight because whether we are exercising or not, our skin will naturally change. As we grow older, we face ageing effects that can really change the look of our skin. Not only does it come with age, but due to the various weather changes happening all over the world - when we travel to different season/weather zones, we can experience dry and irritated skin. For us to really keep our skin feeling comfortable, it's essential to always keep it nourished, hydrated and staying healthy. 

Thanks to Bio-Oil it really is a miracle in a bottle that contains Vitamins A, C and E which all assist us in improving the appearance of the marks, scars, stretch marks and also uneven skin tone. Now that winter has arrived in Australia, we need to prepare ourselves for the cold, chilly mornings and evenings. It's not a pleasant feeling when your skin is dry and unruly. Bio-Oil helps to keep your skin feeling so hydrated, soothing and looking wonderfully nourished. It's also known for its advanced formulation containing PurCellin Oil. 

Ingredients contained in the Bio-Oil: 
Paraffinum Liquidum, Triisononanoin, Cetearyl Ethylhexanoate, Isopropyl Myristate, Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Lavandula Angustifolia, Rosmarinus Officinalis, Calendula Officinalis, Helianthus Annuus, Glycine Soja, BHT, Bisabolol, Parfum, CI 26100.

I used the Bio-Oil every day on my face, neck and stomach for toning and hydrating purposes. I also have a few scars on my face and body which I am not too fond of, and found that the more I used it on the areas - gradually I could see it fading away. It's not gone completely, but by using the Bio-Oil in the longer term, every morning and night - it will benefit my skin more by keeping it silky smooth and soft. I used to have a lot of acne when I was younger and it left me with a few scars on my face. I get quite frustrated when the scars are still visible, but I've found that by using the Bio-Oil - it has certainly improved my complexion by smoothing out my skin. 

I found the formula of oil to be non-greasy, not sticky at all and also learnt that it contained a whole heap of natural plant oils such as Calendula, Lavender. Rosemary and Chamomile. This makes the product smell wonderfully fresh and has a nice rose scent to it. When I apply the oil onto my skin, I can already see and feel the oils absorbing deep into my skin and it does not leave a slippery texture at all. You can definitely tell that all of the natural vitamins are seeping into the skin via the PureCellin oil (which I've previously mentioned it to be an advanced formulation when you apply the oil onto skin). 

I feel that my skin was less dry and became more soft and supple to touch. I was getting dry skin on my legs as well, so I put some of the Bio-Oil and it instantly was hydrated and soft. Not only can you use this on your face, neck and stomach - it can be used on the rest of your body. It's such a great oil which promotes suppleness and just leaves you feeling comfortable. You skin will thank you for it. 

Also, this formula assists with any stretch mark or cellulite that you may have on your body. For myself, I tend to get cellulite at the back of thighs and this of course is perfectly normal. I'm not saying having cellulite is the most negative thing a girl can have - but let's seek treatment in trying to tone the skin and making it look even better.
I applied some Bio-Oil near the prone area for about a week now, and already I am seeing my skin feeling more firm and smoother. Just remember to add in squats to your busy schedule, followed by a treatment of applying some miracle Bio-Oil afterwards. 

To use the Bio-Oil, I simply massaged in circular motions using the product around my face, skin and neck. The next morning I woke up with super soft skin and I loved how my skin felt and looked. My skin was constantly getting dry because I sit in an air-conditioned environment every day so it's not really exposed to fresh air that much. I feel this may be the cause of my dry skin. So by using this Bio-Oil I have definitely noticed my face looking much clearer, glowy and more radiant. I've yet to see a difference with the small pigmentation spots and freckles on my face - but I know that by using this oil more frequently, the ingredients present in the product will certainly benefit my skin more. 

Once you cleanse your face thoroughly, be sure to use a toner first before applying the Bio-Oil. You really want your skin to be super squeaky clean before applying the oil. Having Bio-Oil stocked in your cupboard is ideal because you never really know when it will come handy for you someday. You can use this oil as daily ritual and you only need a small amount of product. 

For the product packaging itself, it's packaged in a white and simple box with a recognisable brand name i.e Bio-Oil. It comes in a 60ml, 125ml and 200ml sized bottles so there's heaps of options to select from. It's very easy to pour a small amount of oil onto your hands and then applying it onto your skin. 

It's a unique type of oil and I feel that this would certainly give me the added confidence and satisfaction with my skin. It's a definitely must buy product because it comes really handy as you can apply it anywhere on your body and face. 

I am giving this product a 5/5 stars because this has certainly improved my skin complexion and I am so happy with it.

  1. Hey Livvy, thanks for the review, i've been wanting to try this product for a while now but haven't been able to get it :p
    I got an article from my friend that talks about stretch marks and how to avoid them and found it very interesting (thought i'll share it with you) :)


    just one little question, how long do you think the smell last for?
