Saved In Stretch Mark Creams/Oils

Bio Oil

Bio Oil is ideal for treating Scars, Stretch Marks, Uneven Skin Tone, Ageing skin & Dehydrated Skin.

Stretch marks -When the body expands faster than the covering skin, the skin tears, forming a scar as it heals. These scars are visible on the surface of the skin as stretch marks. The likelihood of developing stretch marks varies according to skin type, race, age, diet and hydration of the skin. Those most prone to stretch marks include pregnant women, body builders, adolescents undergoing sudden growth spurts and individuals who experience rapid weight gain. Stretch marks are permanent in nature, and although Bio-Oil is formulated to help improve their appearance, it can never remove them. Bio-Oil should be massaged in a circular motion into the stretch marks, twice daily, for a minimum of 3 months. During pregnancy, it should be applied from the start of the second trimester to areas that are prone to stretch marks such as the abdomen, breasts, lower back, hips, buttocks and thighs. Results will vary from individual to individual. https://www.bio-oil.com/uk/uk-en/original/uses/stretch-marks

It was small and compact, could
be a travel pack size. The
packaging is simple and clean. The instructions were straightforward providing all uses for the product,
leaving it open for your choice of use. The bottle design is okay. The only issue I found is that excess oil
would be left under the bottle after use. So I had to place it on a tissue to
soak up the excess oil. This is easy to use as it has a small hole at the top to allow you to
control how much oil you pour out on each use. the oil is easily absorbed into the skin
however the length of time this would take depended on how much oil I would
apply in one go. I
think the consistency of this product means that it is easily rubbed into the
skin. However if applied in large quantities then it can make mess if poured
into your hand and not directly onto the skin. I have mainly been using this for
prevention of stretch marks and so far I am happy to say that I do not have any!I used this to also reduce other marks
that I have and I do feel that it has slightly reduced the appearance of them.I found on my stomach area which I have used it the most. My skin is definitely
soft and smooth. I also used it to dehydrate my hands after doing the washing
up and cleaning round the house, which helped put the moisture back into my
skin and keep them soft. I think
this product is good quality. I think that you can search for a good deal
on this product which makes it more value for money. However it is probably the
more expensive one of these types of products on the market. I like the consistency and smell of
this product. It leaves my skin feeling moisturiser and nice glow/shimmer from
the oil. I have already
purchased more bottles of this product as I would like to continue to monitor
the benefits of using this product and for consistency. I have also developed a
routine from testing this product and plan to continue with this. I would
recommend as I have enjoyed using it. I
think that the stated benefits of this product can actually work.I think that this product is useful and
of good quality. I do however think that it is fairly expensive, so many may
choose alternatives to save money. My suggestion to those people would be to
buy this product on a deal and then see the results for themselves. I have found using this product
very pleasant and it easily became a part of my moisturizing routine.It was easily absorbed and would keep
my skin hydrated all day. Julia Roye

When
this arrived it looked plain and simple
looking. It isn’t something
that jumps out and says luxury.Instructions easy to follow. Enough information without being
over whelming.I liked the bottle design and how it only let small
amounts out and didn’t pour out. Very easy to use just open and drip out.It did absorb into the skin well. I was worried I would be left oily but it
absorbed well.Nice and smooth without feeling too oily.I
did use this on a small part of my stretch marks and it did reduce the
redness.I did not use this to help improve skin tone or appearance of
scars. I did not use this as bath oil as
I am wary of using oils in the bath.This did leave my skin feeling soft and smooth after use. This is a nice quality product and I will
continue to use. It is a bit pricey; I would most likely
purchase it when on offer. I really liked the fact that it didn’t pour out and it wasn’t overly oily
when rubbed in.I would buy this if I saw it on offer. I would recommend as I feel it would benefit my elder mother in law.Easy to
open and use. Not messy and absorbs in well. My skin felt smoother and looked less red on
the stretch marks. I like how it drips out and a little bit goes far. Danielle

Basic and simple looking but also looked as though
it had science and research behind it, so looked expensive as well. Quite plain and boring packaging which is not to my taste and doesn’t
jump out at you. Doesn’t feel as though it is very appealing if you were
looking on a shop shelf. Nothing
complicated or unusual, not sure instructions are really required but I guess
everything does now. The
bottle design is ok, just a functional
bottle and again nothing particularly glamourous. This was easy
enough to use, but whilst I did like it
I found it quite greasy and I had to wait for it to absorb before dressing.
This did not absorb quickly. My skin
can be quite dry and I find many products do absorb very quickly on my skin
this didn’t. It did mean I either had to
rub down with a towel or stand around waiting before getting dressed so as to
avoid grease marks on my clothes. I really liked it; it felt quite thick and
luxurious oil. I did use it mostly for stretch marks and have seen some
improvement but not a lot. Again yes
used for scars but did not see any change for those areas. I didn’t use
it in the bath (yet, I plan to)! I also did not use on my children, too
luxurious for them and not necessary. Once absorbed it did leave my skin
feeling very soft and smooth all day. I think it felt and smelt great
and it was pretty good at what it was supposed to do. I think a little
expensive, especially as I didn’t find it as effective as I had hoped but a
little does go a long way. I liked its scent and the way it felt on my
skin once absorbed. I did like that you didn’t need a lot. Probably
would continue to use and buy it for stretch marks as I am not sure of a better
alternative. I would recommend as it is a well-known product and is
quite effective, maybe not for scars but stretch marks or particularly dry skin.
Felt conflicted as to its value, this was a quality luxury item but not totally
effective. The packaging is a little plain but I did feel as though it backed
up a science / clinically proven type product.
Overall I did like the product and I think after some longer use I would see
more result hopefully. As stated
above I did feel conflicted over its price point value and its package design.
The product felt great but did not absorb as well as I liked. I felt with
children always around having a shower and then applying the oil, then waiting
for it to absorb before getting dressed a little stressful and can see why I
would possibly switch back to a body cream / butter / lotion but I do think
this would be a more effective product in the long run. Sharley Phillips
