My Experience With Bio-Oil for Stretch Marks
Well, I have not been using this very regularly still it gave great results on my skin. Firstly, I want to share that I used stretch mark cream all through the months during my pregnancy but still I have stretch marks and so I wanted to try this bio oil which claims to work on the stretch marks.
Stretch marks are really not great for any woman and depend on a lot of things like genes, type of skin and many other things which decide how the stretch marks are going to be for your skin. Many of my friends agreed that it worked on their stretch marks while others didn’t find it that great. So, it totally differs from person to person.
In my case,as I had a C-section delivery, I started using it after 2-3 months when my stitches got dried up. And now I see that the marks appear much lighter than it was before. I am not saying it will remove the marks completely but it surely reduces the appearance by lightening the stretch marks.
For skincare, this is an awesome product as it is completely a natural product which has a mix of essential oils along with vitamins E & A.
Pregnancy tends to cause dry skin in many women and the skin looks dull so for that using this oil in the regular skincare regime will surely give great results. If you have dry to combination skin, this will be perfectly well for you but if you have and oily skin, I don’t think it will be able to do much on the face.
It has a pungent rosemary oil smell which is a little strong and lingers for a while. If you are sensitive to strong fragrances, this might not be that great for you. For me, it is alright as I don’t have strong smell issues.
For a dull and dry skin, this essential oil works to reveal a nourished skin which visible reduces fine lines, combats with dry patches, works well in removing pigmentation marks like acne scars & blemishes.
A great tip is to use as a cuticle oil as it works great on moisturizing them.
Overall, it has been a great product for me and I am using my second bottle already. This product lasts quite longer as you require only a few drops of it for your skin.
