We were sent some Bio-Oil to review and I thought it was perfect timing, I have stretch marks on my tummy and we are off on holiday soon – also Noah is always covered in bumps and bruises. I had been told that Bio-Oil is great for preventing scars, dry skin and stretchmarks, so I was very happy to try some with the family.

I am under no illusion that my stretchmarks are going to completely disappear, but I will be persevering with it and I will keep you updated on if they get “better” over time with using the Bio-Oil. After using it for a week, daily, it appears to have helped make my tummy feel smoother and softer. I am only hoping that this means the stretchmarks will get better and that I will have more confidence in my body once again.


Did you know that Bio-Oil can help you with get beach beautiful? No! Neither did I until I was told about some fabulous facts and I will be making sure that it is firmly tucked into my holiday bag!

Soothes sun burn: by harnessing the natural properties of lavender to soothe the skin and calendula oil to stimulate the growth of new skin cells and aid skin recovery

Loves your curves: with a unique formula that helps improve the appearance of stretch marks

Combats dry skin: by replenishing the skin’s natural oils, stripped away by factors such as the sun, sea and drying effects of air conditioning. Use Bio-Oil in conjunction with an effective sunscreen, as Bio-Oil does not contain a sun protection factor

Insect bites: improves the appearance of new and old scars that pesky insect bites can cause

Ageing Skin: fights the ageing effects of UV rays on the skin. The targeted formula supports your skin’s anti-ageing system by helping smooth and tone ageing, sagging and wrinkled skin on both the face and body. Plus it’s ideal for age spots

Built into a daily skin care routine, Bio-Oil can be applied all over the body, including the face. For best results Bio-Oil should be applied twice daily for a minimum of 3 months, so that is what I shall do!!
