Is Bio Oil Really Effective ? – Hello all! Please tell me you all missed me ! I had taken more or less a sabbatical from makeup as my skin was behaving very badly. But, I think everyone knows my story now – so lets move on. Here I am with a product thats only recently launched in India but I think I can do a fitting review as I have used this for about two years now as I bought some bottles back from USA. When I saw the ads on tv I was over the moon that now it is easily accessible to all! At the outset,please accept my apologies for the pics as my cam was giving me some problem!
Price: Rs 450 for 60 ml . You can buy it online here (Very reasonable considering what beauty products are priced at these days!!) Although its available on discount on Purplle.com
Bio Oil Ingredients
About Bio Oil:
My experience with Bio Oil:
Packaging: Bio oil comes in a simple packaging of a plastic cylindrical bottled with a white cap.It has a stopper and a hole in the stopper which doesn’t not dispense too much product ( you dont need much anyway !).The transparent bottle helps in knowing just how much product is still there.
The texture of the oil is very very light and is absorbed very quickly into thus skin. As the oil is transparent there is no risk of spoiling your clothes.I feel this works very well to moisturise skin well. However,dry skinned beauties may add some oil to their daily lotion for an added moisture boost. My mom does that and is thrilled with the results!
Now we come to the main question? Does it work or does the company make tall claims??
Bio Oil For acne scars
,I cant say it helped much -but then again I was petrified of putting oil on my face in the midst of an active breakout!!However,when I don’t have breakouts,this oil works well as a serum at night and leaves my skin soft and fresh in the morn with a bit of glow.A drop is enough for my combo skin I am sure this bottle will go a long way!
Bio Oil For body and stretch marks:
Its time to get real,ladies. Nothing will work on existing stretch marks but this oil works on newer marks.I can vouch for that. Overall the area looks smoother n marks are not as noticeable as before. I have a few stretch marks as a result of weight loss.
Bio Oil For dehydrated skin:
Yes!!! It works very well when used as an after shower moisturiser . It doesn’t leave a greasy residue and the skin looks plump and moisturised.
It hardly has any detectable fragrance – very very mild and I cannot put a finger to it as to what the fragrance actually is.
It can be used on face and body but from personal experience I would say use this on face only if you don’t have an active breakout. No telling what more oil can do!!
Also its important to keep in mind that skincare products take some time to show effect so use as directed on pack for at least 3 months. I am sure you will love it
What I like about Bio Oil:
- A light oil which works for a variety of issues and concerns
- Non staining
- Doesn’t leave a residue behind
- Evens out skin tone very well
- No strong smell – sensitive noses rejoice!
- Reasonable enough
What I don’t like about Bio Oil:
- Am not too sure about the effects on active acne
- Very dry skinned ladies may need to top with regular lotion/mosturiser
My rating: 4.5/5
Availability: All chemists and Health & Glow outlets.
