One of the biggest myths I have ever heard is that ‘oily skinned ladies should stay away from face oils’, but thanks to technology as many reliable skin oil manufacturing companies are there who have made a product for your skin type to take care of it. With all new innovative oils, these companies have broken the myth that normal-oily skin should stay away with oils. I have heard a lot about Bio Oil, so started using it long back for desired results. Bio Oil works amazing for face to enhance its glow and radiance. So, Bio Oil was the first thing I picked up and here is my review of this wonderful product.
Bio-Oil is a specialist skincare product formulated to help improve the appearance of stretch marks, scars, and uneven skin tone. It’s unique and strong formulation contains the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil. PurCellin is known as a highly effective ingredient for ageing and dehydrated skin. This ingredient reduces the thickness of the Bio Oil formulation and makes it easily get absorbed.
My Take on Bio-Oil:
From the past 2 years, this product has a special space in my daily accessories cabinet. I have converted half of my family members into using it. At first, I started using it as a body oil. I had heard so much about it’s working on scars, stretch marks, and skin elasticity. I used it on my cuticles, cracked feet, almost everywhere replacing my daily moisturizer. After about a month of regular usage, I observed that an old burn mark started to fade a bit. Also, the stretch marks on my body looked a tad better and then finally, I decided to let it touch my oily face. Obviously, at first, I felt sticky the whole night. But later on, as time went by, it’s started working. Nowadays, I use it as my bi-weekly night facial regimen.
Oily skin: You need a single drop each for cheeks, forehead, nose and mouth.
Dry skin: Go to town with it!
It gets absorbed super fast as you massage it into your skin, but I would recommend you take a small quantity at first and then build on it. I haven’t bought a night cream yet and I am just starting to find an anti-ageing something.
I scrub my face twice a week and then massage a few drops on dewy skin before I go to sleep. I do this especially when I have any functions to attend. As I said, my family members are addicted to this and I recommend Bio Oil to all my friends who are expecting.
