Bio-Oil - not just for scars and stretch marks... who knew?!

I was at an event for  Bio-Oil last week which I went to thinking I already knew everything about it and how much can there be to say - it's for stretch marks, right? That's how much I know...

Beauty expert, Sandy Gold was on hand to exhort the wonders of Bio-Oil - being as low-key and subdued as she is, it was hard to get a handle on whether she actually likes the product or not... if you've ever met Sandy then you know I'm totally kidding and if you haven't met her, just look up "perky" in the dictionary and that will tell you everything you need to know (and you'll see a picture of her)!

She soon set me straight that Bio-Oil is for a whole lot more than just stretch marks! Here are some of the other uses for this head to toe major multi-tasker: as a facial mist (when mixed in a spray bottle with water) eye makeup remover, lip balm, for fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture, as a  face and body moisturizer, nail and cuticle treatment, bath oil, for shaving, as a hair treatment, after sun care and itch reliever.

My favourite tip from Sandy was Bio-Oil as an at-home spa hydrating facial treatment: just soak a facecloth in a bowl with warm water and 5 drops of Bio-Oil. Wring out the cloth and lay it over your face and relax for several minutes. It smells great, is super relaxing and afterwards your skin will feel so soft and moist!

Bio-Oil - 60ml - $12.99, 125ml - $21.99, 200ml - $29.99

  1. Thanks for those tips! I knew Bio-Oil was a multi-tasking products, but I didn't know we could do all those things with it! I personally started to use it to reduce a scar I have. Since I always forget to put it on, the results are ok, but I shall persevere, as I think it is a good product!

  2. Thank you very much for that dazzling
