Bi(o) Oil Review

Hey guys,

As promised my Bio-Oil review. Before I start talking, some pictures.

My opinion:

I had high hopes and happily those hopes were met. I like the oil very much!! It really does moisturize incredibly and is soothing. It is perfect when my face is really red and dried out after showering or after I removed my make up.
I don't know how it works, but I also had the impression that it does even out my skintone a little bit and calms down my imperfections.

I like that you can use it everywhere. So far I used it on my face, lips, and hands. I was pleased with the result each time.

The "hmmmm" things about it:

The smell. The first time I smelled it, I thought that this might smell like something I would apply on my body, but certainly not on my face. Assured by Pixiwoos positive reviews, I tried it nevertheless and by now I'm used to it. It's not an unpleasent smell, it's just, I don't know how to describe it, a body treatment smell.

Though it is fast absorbing, it is oil and if you don't get the exact amount of product you'll need, it's too much and sits a bit on your face. I only use it at night time, so it's not that big a deal.

For the mineral oil part in it:

I know it's not ideal, but mineral oil doesn't harm you per se. It just sits on your skin, it doesn't absorb or anything and the tiny amount of it that is in this product or other beauty products definitely won't do anything. Don't worry, really, that's just a waste of time.

Just think about what we do to our bodies every freaking day: eat crappy food, like (soon) radioactive fish, smoke, drink, don't exercise enough, bla bla bla. There's so much. *gg* My favorite complainers are smoking "only natural ingredients" people *g*

I don't smoke, drink or eat fish, but I certainly eat too much chocolate and should work out more. In comparison, that baby amount of mineral oil seems a bit ridiculous. So don't worry. :-)


If you think about getting it and it could meet any of the mentioned needs or those on the packaging. Go get it, it's a great product.

I hope this was helpful.

thanks for the review, I'm eating chocolate while reading your blog :)
i dont really care if mineral oil is natural or not, I just heard that it will clog your pores and so.
Well, I will give it a try anyway .
thanks again

It can, but the amount of mineral oil is way too low to do that

this stuff is amazing. I bought it the minute pixiwoo recommended it. it leaves my skin super soft and my blemishes have definitely decreased. I wouldn't want to be without it anymore :)
