It feels like scars and stretch marks and tattooed on my body as constant reminder of my bad choices in life. I was quite frivolous kid, climbing on threes, falling on threes, breaking bones and basically what other might describe as active. As a results my legs end up scattered with scars that never actually bothered me, well at least until that annual 10 days of sun holiday. Bio Oil was inexpensive and frankly I never thought that it will actually work. I still bought it, used it a couple of times and then it got berried in my cupboards. One day a brief accident happened while I was ironing, leaving a massive scar behind. Since i had no other product at hand i start using Bio Oil and frankly never looked back. That small bottle of coppery looking oil saved me from years of insecurity.
While ironing I scaled my leg and end up with a blister about 15cm long and 5cm wide. It was massive, ugly and painful at the same time. Like the scars on my legs this new guy settle on a part of my body that is difficult to hide in the summer months. After my huge blister burst and the wound recovered (completely closed) I started researching on different product that could help me minimize the damage. Bio Oil review after review, people had very controversial options about it, but since I already had it, just decided to give it a go. Key to success here is to apply it two to four or more times a day. For the coming months Bio Oil quickly became my handbag especial since I was absolutely determined to do everything possible that could somehow erase my new scar. After about 3 weeks of daily application, results were very very visible. The size of my scar was reduced and its remaining bits of pale white started to gradually blend with my natural skin color. After another week of intensive oil application I was happy with the results and stopped using this oil. My scar did not disappear completely but now it is far less noticeable. I really could not believe how quickly and miraculous this oil managed to help my skin heel. Obsessed with this product I applied it all over my scarred legs and inner tights, where I found some signs of stretch marks I had for a while now. Bio Oil did not do much to my older scars but did manage to improve the look of my stretch marks. Once again they were not completely gone but let’s say about 60% less noticeable, which i’m happy about.
There are no miracle here but more like massive improvements. I strongly recommend buying Bio Oil (£14,99 for 125ml)even if you don’t need it right now. It is super affordable and you really don’t know when it will come handy. From my experience I can tell that this is definitely a product I trust of actually reducing the appearance of scars and stretchmarks especially if they are quite recent.
