Stretch marks is something which is one of my major skin problem, I got stretch marks around my tummy and thighs during my pregnancy and they have been there. I am always looking for something that can lighten the scarring. In past I have tried lot of things but nothing worked out. Then I came to know about this product Bio Oil through YouTube. So here is my experience with the product.

My Experience: This product comes in a plastic container. and have a small opening on the top which dispense right amount of the product always. It looks little orange in the bottle but its colorless when used. It has a medicated smell to it but nothing unpleasent. coming to how I use Bio oil in different ways first I mix it with my Daily Body Lotion to get rid of any stretch marks on the body. It also claims to help with acne scars so I add a drop of Bio Oil and mix it with my daily moisturiser which I reviewed here. I have been using it for over a month now twice a day and It does help in lighten the acne scars andI did see some difference in my stretch marks but may be it will take long to show some major results. The product claims that to see any result you have to use it twice a day for 3 months. But I can see some difference in acne scars in one month may be because my scars were very mild. For my stretch marks over the body I will keep on using it for 2 more months. I will keep using it and definitely recommend it to anyone who has acne scars or uneven skin tones. I have a super oily skin and to my surprise it didn't broke me out.
1. It has Vitamin A & E, which helps in uneven skin.
2. Non greasy formula suitable for oily skinned beauties also.
3. Gets easily absorbed as it has a very thin consistency.
4. Good quantity for the price, little bit goes a long way.
6. Does lighten the acne scars.
7. Evens skin tone.
Takes time to show effects on heavy stretch marks.
Overall, I like this product, it has become the part of my Skin care routine. Do give it a shot and do share your experience. Hope this was helpful.
