I have known about Bio-Oil for some years now but never had a reason to use it, until now. After discovering I was pregnant, I began using Bio-Oil at least once a day on all the areas I believed I may get stretch marks including tummy, sides, boobs and bum :)
I was pleasantly surprised after the first application, I expected the oil to be very greasy but this is not the case. It absorbs very quickly (I always use after showering) and a little goes on a long way. The bottle is designed well, not allowing too much oil to flow out when tipped so it is very easy to control how much you dispense! I find that by the time I have applied this and then used my normal moisturiser everywhere else, the oil has fully absorbed. Bio-Oil is enriched with Vitamin E to protect against dehydration and Vitamin A to keep skin supple and smooth, so I have found this fantastic at combating dry itchy skin as your bump grows, I will continue to use this product long after my little one arrives, as it is very soothing to my dry skin.
I must mention that the smell was also not as expected, it is very subtle but has hits of lavender so applying the oil is a pleasant experience. I am a huge fan of Bio Oil now and would definitely recommend it, especially for pregnancy! I know it can seem a little expensive but it is certainly worth it!
I hope this review is helpful!
