[Event] The launch of Bio-Oil’s Largest Bottle 200ml

I am proud to say during my pregnancy 1.5 years ago, I did not suffer from a single sign of stretch mark on my tummy despite there were times my tummy felt itchy and I scratched on it. So what’s the secret to stretch-mark free tummy during pregnancy?

Bio-Oil was my main skincare.

Previously I reviewed (refer to blogpost) how my scar was lightened from using Bio-Oil. That convinced me quite abit, and so I used it again during my pregnancy. I applied it once a night before sleep. That’s all it took. No skin allergy. No discomfort. Bio-Oil had reduced the risk of forming stretch marks on my tummy! Yay! My holy grail skincare for pregnancy!love58

I truly appreciate how this small bottle of skincare showed its effectiveness on me.

And the good news is, Bio-Oil is now available in a larger sized bottle, 200ml!

Let me recap on the key ingredients in Bio-Oil.

Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract (Calendula Oil)
Lavandula Angustifolia Oil (Lavender Oil)
Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Oil (Rosemary Oil)
Anthemis Nobilis Flower Oil (Chamomile Oil)
Mineral Oil
Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E)

You’ll probably think, “Huh? so many types of oil, the texture is sure going to be super oily and uncomfortable!”.

You’re wrong. One of the plus points from Bio-Oil is, it makes the skin soft and smooth instead of feeling greasy all over.

Bio-Oil can be used on baby skin, like during a massage for the new born. One of the main agenda behind the product is to create the special bonding between the parent and child, and not just a skincare product. Any mother who has used the product and learned about its effectiveness, will sure to share with the little ones at home.

Anyway, when I was at the event introduction launch of the 200ml bottle, I also got my chance to diy a skincare scrub using Bio-Oil with some natural ingredients which are easily found at home or the supermarkets.

Natural Scrub (for face and body) Recipe and Simple Steps

2 table spoons of Manuka Honey.
2 teaspoons of Himalayan Salt (need to self-grind into finer salt).

2 drops of Lemon Essential Oil or 4 squeezes from Fresh Lemon Wedges.
10 drops of Bio-Oil.


Mix it.

And Voila! We’re done!

Pour everything into a airtight jar, you can easily get one from our local  Daiso or Ikea.

Storage is easy, keep the jar in a fridge for months and you can use it as and when you need it.

I tried my diy-ed Bio-Oil scrub on my dry hand. Gave the skin a light scrub, rinsed it off, and immediately I saw good results!

My wrinkled hand looked so much smoother and fairer than before the scrub.

It was an awesome evening with Bio-Oil. I’m already thinking to DIY this scrub for my girlfriends for our next special occasion.

Because the event was held at Cookyn Inc, bloggers and guests also had the chance to learn cooking salmon in the simplest and healthiest way.

I had roughly jotted down the ingredients and steps, going to try it next week when Hazel is in school. (That’s when I’m free, heh!)

Shall share the recipe and steps in a separate blogpost.

Thanks Bio-Oil, you have been such a terrific product when I was pregnant and I can’t stop sharing my experience with friends.

Bio-Oil will be launching its largest sized bottle this coming May 2015.

#Review# Bio-Oil, deals with scars, stretch marks, uneven skintone, ageing skin, dehyrated skin.

Bio-Oil, is basically a bottle of skincare oil formulated to use for many purposes. It consists of natural plant oils and vitamins to promote skin repair and to maintain the good skin conditions.

Key ingredients inside Bio-Oil are, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Calendula Oil, Lavender Oil, Rosemarry Oil, Chamomile Oil.

PurCellin Oil™, Bio-Oil’s breakthrough ingredient, is also added to the mixture of plant oils and vitamins. PurCellin Oil™ is like the carrier oil for Bio-Oil’s other key ingredients. It helps to ensure Bio-Oil is efficiently and fast enough for the active ingredients to be absorbed into the skin so without leaving a sticky finish on the skin.

Bio-Oil can be used on many parts on the body, legs, chest, stomach, hands & nails, neck, forehead, eyes area, cheeks, chin, mouth and nose!

However it is not to be applied on broken, wounded skin. Do not treat it like a magic potion for scars as it is more suitable to heal new scars instead of old scars. I do not pin much hope on old scars especially they are already so old, it’s really hard to get rid of them by just using Bio-Oil.

It’s basically used for scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, aging skin, dehydrated skin.

I have been using it for 2 months and here’s the result that I am sharing. Result varies for every individual ya, what appears to be effective on me within 2 months doesn’t mean it will do the same for you. Patience and regular use will give you good results for sure.

I actually tried to apply on a fresh scar on my ankle. It was really a hassle for me to use it regularly, twice a day for weeks. Took a few drops of Bio-Oil and massage in circular motion (for quite a few minutes) until it is fully absorbed into my skin. Oh yah, apply it on clean skin!

Before

After

After 2 months of application (there are days that I have forgotten to apply), my fresh car has been slightly lightened!!

For the pregnant ladies, it is suitable for you as well! Infact, start using it on the first trimester, throughout the pregnancy and after-birth to minimize stretch marks, caesarean section scars, relief to itchiness.

Bio-Oil is available at Guardian, Unity, Watsons, selected pharmacies and departmental stores in SG.
