|Bio-Oil £8.95 60ml|
With its vital skin building ingredients, Bio-Oil is a multi-tasking, in my opinion, wonder product. It is described as specialist skincare for scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone - also known as ‘pigmentation’ (often an after-effect on the skin of beauty treatments), ageing skin and dehydrated skin on the face and the body – an agenda set by other oil-based skincare products. A lovely pink fluid, Bio-Oil is a most pleasant beauty product. The scent is of the nourishing natural plant oils it contains - calming lavender at first and then invigorating and mildly antiseptic rosemary, skin cell renewing calendula (or marigold) and chamomile which cares for sensitive skin. This oil is supplemented with Vitamin A for elasticity, tone and skin texture, and moisturising Vitamin E, two key skincare vitamins. Bio-Oil is non-greasy. It doesn’t accidentally stain your clothing. It contains a breakthrough ingredient Purcellin Oil which reduces the thickness of the oil and ensures more efficient absorption to the second layer of the skin where Bio-Oil performs its various amazing functions in skincare. For it’s entire agenda, see the human body visual accompanying this post below.
Stretch marks are not a result of the skin expanding when we gain weight. Stretch marks happen when the skin surface reduces again. Bio-Oil treats stretch marks and also the sagging skin stretch marks can leave behind. It rehabilitates the skin with its skin building ingredients and it reduces the possibility of stretch marks again. I applied Bio-Oil to vague stretch marks on my upper right thigh and the moisture it provided made them instantly disappear. Proving an incredible efficacy after just two weeks, read details of a Bio-Oil stretch mark study here. It is suggested you use Bio-Oil for a minimum of three months. As a treatment for dehydrated skin on the face, I found Bio-Oil instantly smoothed and adequately moisturised. It is suggested you use your regular daily moisturiser with Bio-Oil for optimum glow. I now gently apply Bio-Oil as often as possible to my throat and neck, especially at night as a rejuvenating treatment. You will find this area needs specialist care. It ages more rapidly because of repeated head movements and all year round exposure to the sun, the most ageing factor of all, although Bio-Oil does not contain a Sun Protection Factor. As an overall body moisturiser, it’s intensive. I moisturise my stomach in particular and my arms and shoulders especially. And the Bio-Oil scent? In one word, it’s excellent.
