My Final Verdict:
The 60 ml product comes in a plastic bottle which is user-friendly making it easy to get a drop out since i normally count the number of drops i use. 😀
It has a very light scent to it which is not overwhelming and I kinda love it. It is an oil but the consistency is a thin oily liquid and it absorbs to skin easily.
I find it works on my skin during the days when my skin feels dry. I use it in many different ways , as per instructed by the people behind it which I will share below. But my favorite way to use it is mixing 2 to 3 drops with my night cream and with my WoMn Get the Glow mask.It hydrates skin , and like what i always say, hydrated skin means healthy smooth skin. So if you want a good skin, then HYDRATE !
Extra Tips from the brand:
I know Summer is almost over but hey, it’s still hot!
SUMMER READY SKIN IN JUST THREE
Bio–Oil is your perfect summer companion, a do it all skin savior
School is out, temperatures are high, and it’s time to make sure your skin is ready for the summer heat. The harsh sun rays can wreak havoc on your skin, but Bio–Oil has got you covered this summer with easy three easy steps to perfect summer ready skin from tip to toe.
The first step to getting a glowing skin is proper exfoliation. To exfoliate your skin, mix two teaspoons of lemon juice, four to five drops from Bio–Oil and brown sugar. Apply the mixture on your face, neck and hands. Scrub in a circular motion and leave it on for 10 minutes. Then rinse it off with lukewarm water. Repeat this procedure two to three times a week to get a perfect glowing skin.
A soothing solution for both skin damage caused from overexposure to sunlight and excessive dryness due to domestic air conditioning, Bio–Oil replenishes and soothes dehydrated skin. Rich in groundbreaking PurCellin Oil, Bio–Oil’s hydrating properties are instantly absorbed leaving the skin soft and smooth. To perfect your summer glow and replenish your skin, apply Bio–Oil two times a day one in the morning and before bed to lock in your skin’s natural moisture.
3. Protect & After-Sun Soothe
Wearing sunscreen on our face and body is a summer must-do. Before heading to the beach, apply Bio–Oil to your body and face and then a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF >20. Bio–Oil has anti-inflammatory properties that can help relief the redness caused by the sun damage. Besides acting as a protective layer over skin to hold in moisture, natural botanicals such as chamomile extract, calendula oil and rosemary oil further soothe and nurse scorched skin back to a healthy post-holiday glow.
The award-winning Bio–Oil keeps the skin hydrated and supple, with the unique combination of ingredients allowing the skin to feel healthy and rejuvenated. This skincare product is available at all leading pharmacies throughout the UAE for AED45.
