Getting my confidence back with Bio Oil (and a giveaway)

I am nearly 40, my body has been through weight gain and weight loss, two pregnancies, and there are some scars and marks to prove it. I have stretch marks on my tummy & thighs. I am mostly ok with them, I am learning to love my body a bit more and be less bothered by the marks left by life events but it is nice to find something that helps to soften and smooth them out a bit. 

I have friends who swore by Bio Oil when they were pregnant, and after they had given birth but for some reason I didn’t ever try it. 

With turning 40 looming, I am in the midst of a slight “let’s make myself feel better” mode, so trying out something that might smooth out the stretch marks I have, and making me feel slightly better about putting on a swim suit when we go on holiday, can’t be a bad thing. It smells lovely and makes my skin feel soft and smooth when applied. It’s suitable for all sorts of things, not just stretchmarks and can be used for scars, dehydrated skin, dry skin, aging skin and to help uneven skin tone. It’s a product that many years of research have gone into and so many people use it, to help improve issues with their skin. It’s safe to use during pregnancy too, which means you can use it on your skin, when it feels dry and tight, and also to help soothe any stretch marks you might have.

I can see that some of my stretchmarks are slightly less bumpy and feel smoother, with just ten days of use, so I am hoping that by the summer holidays they will be even less visible. I am learning to love my body but that doesn’t mean I can’t do what I can to help improve bits of it and help me feel a bit more confident.

  1. I’ve used bio-oil in the past on scars, and for very dry patches of skin on my face and it’s been brill. Would love another bottle to use on stretchi marks, seeing as I’ve just run out! ?

  2. I have a few zippy scars from when I get my new defibrillators on my chest that are always itchy and flare up red. Id love to lighten them as Im fed up with people saying they look like love bites

  3. I’ve been thinking about giving bio-oil a go, I’ve got a few stretch marks and recently had an operation which has left me with a few undesirable scars so I’ll definitely be giving it a go after reading your review!

  4. I have recently lost 3 stone in weight and have stretch mark scars would love to try this to see if it helps them fade

    • Malik, very nice. What about making the film that we want by using these types of materials and only thing is to relate with the covrtxe….nety nice, good luck – keep always smiling and enjoying life
