Bio-Oil For Face Review
What is Bio-oil?
Bio–Oil is a specialist skincare product formulated to help improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. This product contains the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil, this is highly effective for ageing and dry skin.
Why did I buy it?
I found out about Bio-oil through a friend who was using it to help clear up her skin. She has the same conditions as me which are eczema, sensitive and dry skin.
So I thought this product might be what I need to help my skin. At the time, I was struggling with having an uneven skin tone, pimples on my forehead and extremely dry skin. By buying Bio-oil, I hoped it would help improve my skin and make it as clear as possible.
Scars are an important part of the healing process and due to its nature, they most likely will leave marks. Bio-Oil is formulated to help improve the appearance of scars, but the company have admitted that it can never remove them.
Many people have said that they have seen a difference in their scars appearance and that the scar will fade very nicely in time. Bio-Oil should be massaged in a circular motion into the scar, twice daily, for a minimum of 3 months. On new scars, Bio-Oil should be applied only once the wound has healed, and should not be used on broken skin.
Uneven Skin Tone:
With ageing comes wrinkles and that is something not many people want. Wrinkles are caused by the weakening of the collagen and elastin support system in the skin. Bio-Oil contains numerous ingredients that help to plasticize the skin, making it softer, smoother and more supple, thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkled skin.
Bio-Oil also moisturises, which improves the texture, tone and appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It should be applied to the affected areas twice daily.
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. 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.
The surface of the skin has an invisible oil layer which acts as a barrier to stop moisture from escaping. In a very dry climate, this lipid layer is often unable to cope and too much moisture is drawn out of the skin. Daily bathing or showering may exacerbate this by stripping away the lipid layer due to the astringent effects of soap and water.
Bio-Oil supplements the skin’s natural oil layer, helping to restore its barrier function of retaining moisture.
Pros and Cons:
- Very affordable
- There is evidence that it works
- 1 bottle can last for months
- Some people have reactions but it is hyperallergic
- It is not a specialised product
Before and After Pictures
Who it is suitable for:
Bio-oil is for everyone and there isn’t really an age group that it is for. This because of what Bio-oil wants to achieve for the user. If you have been struggling to clear your and just need one simple product, this is for you. Even as a simple moisturiser to add to your skincare routine. This means that anyone can use it because we all have scars, ageing skin, stretch marks etc.
If you have oily skin, you can still use it because Bio-oil is a ‘dry oil’ which means it is rapidly absorbing into the skin without leaving a greasy residue, so will not cause breakouts.
Bio-oil typically cost $8 to $25 depending on what you size you buy. I use the 2 fl. oz bottle because it’s the cheapest and lasts me a couple of months. A little goes a long way really applies to Bio-oil.
How This Product Improved My Skin:
I use Bio-oil every day and I think this product works. I mainly used it because I had uneven tone and dehydrated skin. After 2 months or so, my skin tone evened out and my skin became really soft. An added plus is that it really helps my spots and gets rid of them within a few days. I have really sensitive skin(and eczema) and Bio-oil is one of the only products that don’t hurt my skin.
If you are scared to try this product, don’t be. It is honestly worth the try and you will probably love it. My bottle normally lasts me 4-6 months which is amazing. Even if it doesn’t work for you, you can give it to someone else to try.
That is all for today. I hope this Bio-oil for face review was helpful and you give bio-oil a chance. If you enjoyed this review comment below products you would like me to review.
