I had been looking for a product to help me with my stretch marks and dry skin problems for a couple of months, as I am trying to get ready for my upcoming planned pregnancy. I had tried plenty of products but the moisturizing effect they produced it never lasted more than a couple of hours and I did not see any significant improvement for my existing stretch marks. Finally a little over a month ago a friend of mine recommended me to try Bio-Oil and to use dermaroller amazon.
When I got to Walgreens and saw the little bottle of 60ml/2fl.oz. pinkish oil for about $12 dollars I almost leave without it. In the package it said I had to use it twice a day which for me meant that I was going to need at least four bottles a month if not more. Coming to about $50 dollars or more just for my moisturizer, but I was curious enough and trusted my friend so finally decided to give Bio-Oil a try.
The bottle comes with a little instructions pamphlet on how to use Bio-Oil for the different needs you may have: Scars, Stretch marks, Uneven Skin tone, Aging Skin and Dehydrated Skin. It also has the list of Ingredients starting with PurCellinOil which helps with the absorption of the other ingredients: Vitamin A and E, Lavender, Calendula, and Rosemary Oils, and Chamomile Extract. This description did not reassure me either but I proceeded to use it.
I have been using Bio-Oil twice a day on my stretch marks and problem areas, after my shower and before I go to bed at night and once a day on the rest of my body. My skin overall has improve a 90% it is smoother and has better tone to the touch, it looks healthy and has that polished glow that I always love in others. I have also noticed that insect bites heal quicker without leaving dark spots behind and my stretch marks are 25% less noticeable. If you take into consideration that I have had those stretch marks for more than 10 years it is a great result.
Bio-Oil absorbs fast without leaving a greasy feeling behind. It has a pleasant smell that is subtle enough that is not perceive if you wear perfumes or body sprays. It is also safe to use on your face and neck and I have seen the results on my friend’s first wrinkles as they get smother and less noticeable. After a little over a month I have used three bottles of Bio-Oil but in my opinion they are worth every penny.
