Hello to all my readers … Thinking if Bio Oil is the best treatment for your skin care problems ? Like me, you might have also seen this in other beauty blogs hailing it as miracle beauty product. Well, This is a product that has stormed the Indian cosmetic market these years.
I am a South Indian with medium-fair skin with yellow undertones to it. like others at times i too suffer from uneven skin tone, breakouts, dark spots and dry patches . Due to the changes in weather or changes in my hormones 🙂 🙂 . I also have pregnancy stretch marks and dark circles like any Indian mom 🙂 So I thought of giving this product a try .
Product Description :
The company quotes “Bio Oil is a specialist skincare product formulated to help improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. Its unique formulation, which contains the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil, is also highly effective for aging and dehydrated skin. PurCellin Oil reduces the thickness of the Bio-Oil formulation and makes it easily absorbed.”

It comes in a small white and orange carton box . Nothing very much to fancy about the packaging & the bottle actually comes with a screw cap which I feel very annoying and time consuming to open and close every time. But.. But.. this is what makes it leak proof and so travel friendly. The oil inside is light orange(peach :p) in color. It also comes with an instruction manual and pictures on how to use it on your face
My take on The Bio Oil :
I am a person who wants my beauty products to smell nice and tempting to use more. And this product doesn’t appeal me in that matter, it has a very soapy smell which is mild though. Coming to the consistency of the oil, its is definitely very light & wont make your skin shiny but well moisturized . It did not clog my pores however.
I first used it in my night care regime started using it by applying it before sleep. I take a few drops of this oil on my palm and massage on my face and neck … I was surprised to see soft supple skin the next morning . I continued using to for some more months and it made my skin texture better. But dint do anything to my acne scars & dark spots which the product claims about . But it lightened my dark circles to an extent . If you suffer from dry skin and dry skin patches go give it a try .
Later I tried using it as a body oil. After bath I take little quantity of it on my palm and rub all over my body… this has greatly helped me in moisturizing my skin in winter and I dint use any other body lotions this time . But it dint help in the appearance of my pregnancy stretch marks and i don’t think there is any product which can erase them. But continuous use of bio oil will help in not forming new marks by improving the elasticity of skin.
Coming to the other ways I use it……
- Like a make up primer: Just by smearing on a tiny amount before applying my bb cream or day creme to have a delicious dewy look without oily sheen. You can also use it to give your powdery eye shadows a wet look. Similarly, blend a little amount to your blush or foundation for a good wash of color.
- lip care : whenever i m out of lip balm, i just take few drops of bio oil on my fingertips and use it as a lip oil. it moiturises lips very well and gets absorbed like magic. You can also use it before applying any matte lipsticks.
- Cuticle Protector: Everyday massage Bio-Oil into your cuticles and nails to keep them healthy, strong and beautiful.
- Frizz Fighter: Smooth on a tiny bit of Bio-Oil onto you hair ends as a hair serum. Whenever i am out of my serum i use Bio Oil to tame my unruly tresses .. don’t use it much as it makes hair oily.
- You can also use it as massage oil , pre-shave primer , after shave skin soother etc . .
Overall a good product which helps in hydration and elasticity of skin . Slowing down the aging process and evens out skin tone.. But don’t consider it a miracle skin food in reducing scars and marks. And i don’t know how it will work on pigmentation.
I do recommend it in giving a try. And i shall repurchase it in winters.
My rating: 7/10
