Bio-Oil – The Best Multipurpose product
The magic of Bio-Oil.
Have you ever wanted to have one magical product that combats the need for a half dozen? I can definitely say that I for one was always on the lookout for a product that does multiple things. Now, I wasn’t quite sure if I would ever find such a magical item as it does sound like a long far away dream. The one thing I was certain of, however, was that if this product existed it would undoubtedly cost me an arm and a leg!
It may seem like I know exactly what sort of multipurpose product I was searching for, and what I needed it to do. Believe it or not it couldn’t be further from the truth! All I knew was I needed a product that did several things at once, mainly because sometimes we like to have our lazy days.
First let me start by introducing this wonderful magical product, that seems like it belongs in wonderland. Which I can assure you, it doesn’t! It’s something that generally every household has or has had in their house at some stage, for whatever reason, it’s none other than Bio-Oil.
Bio-Oil is a specialist skincare oil that can assist the skin in a range of ailments and issues, such as: uneven skin tone, the appearance of scars and stretch marks. However, I’ve found so many more uses for it as you will read about! If you also happen to suffer from dehydrated or aging skin, this is also the kind of product for you.
With a lengthy list of awards, it is almost expected before you even use the Bio-Oil that it’s going to be amazing! My earliest memory of using this product stretches back almost 12 years ago! I was involved in an accident that led to me having a rather large scar on my hip, once it had healed my mom had me using Bio-Oil straight away. The oil definitely had a huge impact! I’ll explain how it made a difference down below, as I explain the list of benefits that I’ve found for Bio-Oil outside of the stock standard.
The product uses vitamins and plant extracts with a special ingredient called PurCellin Oil, which helps make it non-greasy and light by improving consistency. Having a product which I can use all over my body and face that isn’t greasy, is a huge win for me! Especially given I struggle with a very oily t-zone.
As I mentioned above, my first time using this product was on a bad scar I got as a teenager. On a scar that was very red, purple, wrinkly. Not to mention, obvious. Between the scar settling over time and twice daily use of Bio-Oil on the area, the skin eventually settled to a normal skin tone that was relatively smooth. The little smaller scars surrounding the large one also faded so much that they aren’t visible anymore at all.
Let’s start with pre-stretch marks. Certain events, situations and circumstances can sometimes leave a person predisposed to stretch marks; such as pregnancy. When I fell pregnant one of the first things I did was start using Bio-Oil on my stomach, legs and butt! The hydration elements in this product is fantastic and kept my skin plump, fresh and hydrated throughout my pregnancy. Would you believe it if I said I’ve got no stretch marks? Any that did appear after I had my daughter, I used a combination of Bio-Oil and a natural hydration cream called Sans [Ceuticals] Baobab Regenerative Body Cream. I used the last of it a couple of weeks ago actually, it spoke about it in an empties post a while back. Anyways, the combination of oil and cream cleared them up.
This is not me saying that it will work for everyone, but it worked for me. I definitely attribute the Bio-Oil as a serious contributing factor in making that happen for me.
As someone with Irish skin in Australia, let’s just say that I tend to burn easier than most even with the right protection! With sunburn, comes the dreaded aloe vera! Now I know a lot of people are probably really fond of Aloe. I know I used to be as well. Every time the sunburn happened the first thing I did was grab the Aloe out of the fridge. But let’s be real here who really likes the feeling of aloe vera on their skin or all over the bed sheets? Definitely not me.
The non-greasy liquid means I don’t have a layer of residue on my skin, which means no more sticky sheets! Another plus, this hydration factor I keep talking about comes into play again. It’s intense hydration plays a major part in healing sunburn in record time! This is not my advocating a quick fix for unsafe sun! Not even close. This is me acknowledging that accidents happen. And I’ve found that Bio-Oil is a better solution than anything I’ve ever used.
Since using Bio-Oil these past few weeks I’ve discovered yet another handy use for the product! I promise that this is the very last one! My elbows and knees get really dry and dehydrated, it leaves them looking white and like dried grapes. It’s not an attractive look, especially in summer when you wear shorts, skirts and dresses. The last thing anyone wants is to have your knees looking all white from dry skin.
Using Bio-Oil on these areas has dramatically improved the health and over-all look of my dehydrated skin. It’s become almost second nature now to put the Bio-Oil on every morning and after my shower. If you suffer from seriously dry skin or dehydrated skin then I would definitely recommend this product for you!
My personal experience with Bio-Oil as a whole, has been nothing short of absolutely amazing! I have been so impressed by all the many uses I have found for this product!
