Bio-Oil, The Perfect Head-to-Toe Moisturizer! ~ Review + Giveaway!

Bio-Oil is a world renowned, specialist skincare oil that is clinically proven to improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. But it's so much more than that! Bio-Oil's moisturizing properties make it an effective head to toe moisturizer. From split ends to cracked heels, Bio-Oil can treat it all!

Bio-Oil has won countless awards (332 but who's counting) and is the No.1 scar and stretch mark product in 24 countries, including Canada - source

Formulated with proprietary PurCellin Oil, Botanical Oils (Lavender, Calendula, Rosemary, Chamomile) and Vitamins (A&E) to help maximize skin elasticity and to lock in moisture -this makes skin softer and smoother.

You can use Bio-Oil on your face to help minimize dark spots and hydrate your skin, regardless of skin type. Contrary to popular belief, those with oily skin can and do benefit from the use of beauty oils. Skin often reacts to dryness by creating an abundance of sebum (oil). Bio-Oil helps to restore skins natural oils that can be stripped away from washing or harsh weather conditions (hello Canadian winter) which can help prevent your face from producing extra sebum.

Admittedly I was nervous of using beauty oils on my face because I have combo skin and I was always told that oil would break me out. I now know that's a myth, but nonetheless I was still nervous. I took the plunge and I can tell you that you will benefit from it! Incorporating Bio-Oil into my beauty routine has helped my skin maintain balance and I don't see any more breakouts than I normally do.

The neat thing about Bio-Oil is that you can use it around your eyes and even on your lips which makes it perfect for those of you who don't want to use a gazillion products on your face.

You can also use it to remove your makeup! Bio-Oil completely dissolved all of my facial makeup with the exception of my mascara. In all fairness, I find most products can't handle mascara removal.

I have also swapped body lotion for Bio-Oil and my skin is thankful for it. After my morning shower I apply it to my body and my skin stays hydrated - all day. Unlike some oils (coconut for example), Bio-Oil absorbs into my skin and doesn't leave a heavy feeling. I can get dressed in a matter of minutes and know that the oil won't get all over my clothing. It also makes the perfect after shave treatment. My legs feel so smooth and I don't experience any irritation from it like I do with certain lotions.

Bio-Oil is also great for hand and nail health. Cuticles love oil and so do hands, just apply it sparingly (bedtime is best). Same goes for your feet. Bio-Oil can help with dry, cracked heels. I use a Pedi device to remove any build up of dead skin, apply Bio-Oil and a pair of socks before I go to bed. In the morning my feet feel much smoother and look way better. Buh-bye scaly, flaky skin!

I have a couple scars and a few small stretch marks that I've been applying Bio-Oil to but I haven't used it long enough to see any major results. I'm going to continue to use it and will update you all as to whether or not it improves them.
