Bio Oil Review

bio oil review
Hey everyone! So today I thought I would do a little review on a product I have been using on and off for quite some time now but has worked wonders for my skin! Bio-Oil is a specialist skincare well known for treating scarring or stretch marks, it has other benefits of course but these are the two most common reasons people purchase it

Even though I haven't gained weight, had a baby or been pregnant, I still unfortunately have a few stretch marks on my thighs. Since I am still young this is all to do with teenage hormones and growing up from a child to a teenager, so if anyone else is a teenager that suffers with them and isn't sure why don't worry, your body is just growing up! 

I have been using Bio Oil to help reduce the appearance of spot scarring on my face as unfortunately I suffer with them and stretch marks on my upper thighs. 

A little goes a long way with this bottle and I purchased the 60ml bottle a good half a year ago maybe longer, it isn't the biggest but it is ideal as it lasts so so long! I am only half way through using it so you do the maths!

I apply a tiny amount to the palm of my hand and rub together then massage it gently to my stretch marks (massaging in for 1-2 minutes). I sometimes repeat the process twice morning and evening if I have the time.

For my face scars I tend to not apply this to my palms I dab a little bit onto my finger and apply it to areas that are scarred or over a spot that I know will scar.I also only use this once a day because... 
1. I still get occasional spots and Bio-oil advise you not to use this whilst having blemished skin.
2. I have blemished prone skin so trying oils and new products can break me out sometimes.
3. I suffer with oily skin as it is. I feel like I am just adding more oil to it if I cover my face in it.

Finale results! - Since I have been applying Bio-Oil to my stretch marks for almost 2-3 weeks properly I have noticed an amazing difference. I wouldn't even say I have stretch marks anymore because this oil has completely wiped them away. Just after one use (having rubbed in 2 minutes) I noticed the next morning they weren't as noticeable.
So after a few weeks you'd not even think I had any they completely faded away.
I should have took photos of a before and after process but I wasn't confident enough to try this!
Unfortunately I have only been using Bio-Oil on my face for a few evenings now because I was reluctant to. So I can't give you my opinion just yet, but when I do I will be sure to tell you's.

Tips...Personally if you have stretch marks and want rid of them properly I suggest just every evening (if you have time morning too!) applying this to your scars or stretch marks and rub in a circular motion for 2 minutes, TRUST ME the better attention you give you skin the quicker the results will come.
If you are like me and afraid to apply oils to your face just dab a tiny bit onto areas that are scarred or just over a spot that way you aren't covering your whole face in oil and looking like you are about to get cooked.
