Review | Bio Oil

Bio-Oil 60ml - £5.99 
It has to be said, my acne scars are the bain of my life. They constantly annoy me every single time I look in the mirror makeup-less. I have been on the hunt for countless products to try and banish them from my cheeks and slowly but surely, I've made a little progress. 


Bio-Oil is a multi-tasking facial and body oil that combats: Scars, Stretch Marks, Uneven Skin Tone, Ageing Skin and Dehydrated skin. Now for me, I use it to combat my scars and also slightly with the uneven skin tone part. I do really like this product and for the price I think it does a very good job at helping to fade the acne scars on my face. I apply this products every night over my moisturiser and apply 2-3 drops to each cheek and one drop on my chin and then just rub it in. It is also suggested that you can add 4-5 drops into the bath but for me, this obviously isn't needed as my problem areas are on my face. 


The one problem with this product for me is because I have normal-oily skin, using this facial oil, really makes my face feel super oily. Now, this isn't a problem when I go to sleep as I just fall straight asleep, however in the mornings, I have to wash my face immediately when I wake up as it just feels horrible and so so oily! Now this is immediately sorted once I have washed my face but it's just not a very nice feeling to wake up with. 


However, I do really like this product and will continue to use it until my acne scars decide to banish forever (Let's hope!). I do use this in conjunction with the Origins Mega Bright Skin Tone Correcting Serum and also, the La Roche-Posay Biomedic Pigment Control and I find that with using all three, my acne scars are starting to fade and diminish. 


What would you use Bio-Oil for?

  3. I used to use Bio oil for scarring on my face (painful dog attack.. ouch D:) but it definitely faded them loads! I agree though with the greasy feeling it gives but it was worth it at the time, people can barely notice now, unless I point it out (:
    I love your blog btw, followed <3
