After having my first child I was left with my fair share of tiger stripes (my trophy for getting through the pregnancy and delivery), and then after my next two children I was left with many many tiger stripes lol so the search began for something that would reduce my stretch marks. I know there is nothing out there that will get rid of these altogether, but there are many products that promise to at least reduce them.
Bio Oil promises to reduce the appearance of stretch marks and scars, so I purchased it. It is easy to use, with a no mess no fuss bottle. It glides on to your skin leaving it feeling smooth and soft. What really impressed me though, was that even though it is an oil, it does not leave you all shiny and greasy, which was a real relief.
The bottle I bought was a decent size, and because it is an oil, it goes a really long way, which also means that you really do get value for your money. I used the Bio Oil for a couple of months but do not believe that it really reduced the appearance of my stretch marks at all. However, even though this was disappointing, I did like the way it left my skin feeling and the smell was also very nice. It may not help in making stretch marks go away but it does leave your skin nice and soft and glowing, and for the price you pay that in itself is good enough for me.
I have never really used skin products before - they seemed quite scary and messy... and sticky. I don't even know what prompted me to try this but I was pleasantly surprised. It's not scary, messy or sticky. It's really easy to use and just makes me feel nice. I will definitely keep using it :)
I am currently 32 weeks pregnant and prior to trying this product and during my previous pregnancy used Bio Oil religiously, but I prefer Rosken Bio Serum 10 fold! The bottle is smaller in size but goes so far, I use half as much as I did with bio oil and it seems to spread and go on so easily, it smells great and dosen't leave my skin feeling greasy.
I have really enjoyed this product. Firstly, it has a great smell. Its not over powering and it isnt fake smelling. It smells natural and for me thats a huge plus.
Although the bottle looks little it is definately cost effective. The bottle seems bottomless and lasts for so long it isnt funny.
The serum goes on so nicely, spreading evenly and reaching far.It is non-greasy and leaves your skin feeling silky smooth. It sounds like a cliche but its totally true!
I use the Bio Serum every morning on my hips and thighs for stretch marks acquired from having children. I also put it on the back of my hands and under my eyes.
I for one will be purchasing a new bottle when this one is empty. I highly recommend this product. Its really lovely.
I absolutely love this product, I use it every night before I go to bed and in the morning after my daily wash. I thoroughly recommend it to anybody. I love the warmth of it and it spreads evenly, I have noticed a beautiful glow and softness in my skin and would be happy to purchase another bottle.
This product is very easy to use and smells great. The bottle may even be a little easy to open especially for little fingers. The product makes the skin silky smooth and keeps your skin more water resistant than most products. Overall I was highly impressed with this product and will continue to use it.
What a fabulous product! Prior to trying Bio Serum I was a huge 'bio oil' supporter, but I can say that I have been converted!! I really enjoyed the silky smooth, hydrated skin that I was left with after applying the product. I thought the consistency of the oil was great, it felt slightly thicker than the bio oil, so I felt it glided on very easily. It definately improved my skin texture. I put it on my body after a warm shower, and during the next day, I could still feel the extreme softness of my skin. The fragrance was very mild and pleasant. The price was very competitive, as a little goes a long way.
I totally LOVED it.
I have used this product for approximately 3 weeks now. It is light and non greasy. It makes my skin feel smooth and soft but no significant improvements yet. Has a pleasant very mild scent.
I'm impressed with the simple packaging, and instructions. The oil smelt great, without being overpowering.There was a slight oily residue left, but it doesn't stay long as it is soaked in quick. It definately leaves your skin feeling smooth and refreshed.
The price is quite good for the amount of product there is. The 50ml bottle is a great size to keep handy in your handbag, or suitcase for travellers.
Unfortunately this product made my skin itchy when I used it on my face. I used it for two days and will try again later as my trial of this product coincided with a flair up of excema. But would advise caution if you suffer from severe excema or dermatitis. I also used it on my tummy which did not cause any irritation but after 10 days have noticed little to no change.
My partner has a tendency to suffer from dry and cracking skin on her hands, so when this arrived by courier the other day she literally ripped it from my hands saying, this stuff is for me to try.
So she put it on and immediately commented on how soft her hands felt. She has used this religiously since and has noticed a real difference, she no longer has problems with her hands drying and cracking.
The fact that this also is hypo-allergenic is also great as my partner also has sensitive skin and this has not affected her in any way.
I can see we will probably be buying more of this in the future.
This stuff is awesome and non greasy, much better than other similar products on the market that I have tried. It has made some of my stretchmarks lighter than they first were and I would continue to use this product over and above any other. There was nothing I didn't like about this product, I thought it was GREAT.
This was a lovely product to use, very pleasant, subtle fragrance. Absorbed well into the skin and was gentle enough to use on my baby's dry skin. Have started using on a couple of scars but will need to use for longer before any real results might be seen. Convenient sized bottle that is small enough to keep in your bag.
I found this product extremely easy to use, the instructions were very basic.
The product was slightly on the greasy side but that should be expected with a serum.
I suffer from extremely dry skin on my face and generally have to moisturize 5-6 times a day. With this product I didn't have to. I used it once in the morning and once in the evening and found my skin looked and felt a lot better. I would not recommend using it before you apply makeup because of the slightly greasy texture.
I used the product on my stretch marks and to be honest it does make the stretch marks slightly less visable.
It's a fantastic oil for back massages or foot massages if you can convince someone to give them to you.
Overall I think this product is excellent. The only little problem is the size of the bottle, if you were a bigger lady using this product twice a day I don't think it would last long. It needs to be in a 100ml bottle.
I was a bit hesitant to try this product as I've fallen in love with the 'Bio Oil' and didn't want to change, but I thought there's no harm in trying.....
The first application amazed me with its quick aborbent oil and didn't leave my body and hands feeling greasy.
Within 15mins my body felt soft and smooth and visibilty reduced the dry skin.
I also tried a few drops in the bath for my son who suffers from ecxema, I wasn't to sure on using it on him but after the second night using it in his bath his ecxema wasnt looking angry and dry like it usually does after a bath as the water drys out his skin.
Only gripe is I thought the price was a bit high compared to other brands for its size.
This made my skin feel better almost straight away. I have dry hands from being in water with washing, and dairy farming. This made them soft, and after a couple of days the wrinkles on my palms had decreased.
It doesn't feel too oily, or leave a residue on the skin as it is absorbed very quickly. It is quite expensive for the size of the bottle, but on certain areas of the body like face and hands, and especially stretch marks, it is worth the price as it seems to work.
I will admit to being pretty lucky with my skin, and don't have many dry patches, or wrinkles. yay me! However, given the opportunity to sample this product, I decided that there wasn't any harm in giving it a try.
There is a pleasant aroma to the oil, and it is light and sinks into the skin reasonably quickly - there is nothing worse than these types of products where the oil sits on your skin and you feel greasy for hours afterwards!!!
I used the oil on my knees - they get some hard work being an early childhood teacher! - on the area surrounding my eyes (got to hate those bags!) and on my hands after a day of doing nappies and having to wear powdered gloves, which makes your hands very dry.
My knees soaked up the oil and were noticeably softer after a few days ? I would like to say that the bags under my eyes became less noticeable, however I couldn't tell you this categorically - I think I need some more time for this.
The biggest difference I noticed was when I used it on my hands. I had put moisturiser on several times during the day while wearing about 100 pairs of latex powdered gloves, but by the end of the day, they were still dry and felt like they had started the mummification process.
When I got home, I got out the Bio Serum and put some of that on, and almost immediately, they felt better! Kind of like a mini hydrating bath for them, but without the hours of soaking your hands.
If you have dry skin, I would definitely recommend you seek out a bottle or two of this to have in your arsenal. It is cheaper than some of its competitors, and does exactly what it says it will in regards to moisturising :)
I love Bio Oil and this serum is an excellent alternative to the range. It has a nice smooth texture on your skin and you only need to use a little at a time, so this size container is going to last. Therefore it is a good value for money product.
It has a nicer smell than the bio oil, from memory. I have very dry skin and this serum has really helped just in the two weeks I have been using it on my face.
My skin holds moisture better and does not need extra moisturiser during the day now. The packaging is simple and strong and tells you what you need to know. It has a professional look that makes you trust the brand. More clinical than emotional, but I think that is a good thing as I want to feel like this is a well researched and tested product. Not much more to say really, it is a great product and works for me. I look forward to even better results the longer I use it.
