I love body oils but I always passed over Bio-Oil in the pharmacy. It could be the plain packaging or the rather unattractive ads on TV. Or it could also be that I am quite picky about oils I put on my face, and for my body, I go for something that relaxes. I was offered a chance to try this quite a few months ago so I decided to give it a go.
When my sister was pregnant, we were doing some research on how to combat stretch marks and one of the oils that came recommended was Bio-Oil (She eventually went with Clarins, however. Thank goodness too, because that smells a heck of a lot better!) From what I remember of the TV ads, this oil also helps to reduce scarring, uneven skin tone and ageing skin.
There is a whole host of things Bio-Oil is supposed to be able to do for skin on body and face, so I was raring to give it a go.
