I have only used it for body yet but my mum who has used it for years said she puts it on her face when she is just in the house and its nourishes her skin better than any of the big brands she has tried. So I am going to give this a go soon.
will follow this thread with interest as bought a bottle recently to hopefuly reduce the appearance of 3 angry scars on my back (moles removed). Put some on my neck &cleavage and seems to really soften up skin
It should work wonders on your scars. I managed to get away with stretch marks until the last week of my pregnancy, then ended up with one huge purple on right on the middle of my tummy. It faded that really quickly.
Does work well on the thick white scars that you get after surgery, just fades red or purple ones to silvery white.
The white scar on the back of my hand where I'm sure some student doctor made their first attempt at stitches was really lumpy and white. It is much softer after using bio-oil in the bath for the last 6 months. It is still there but is softer and less noticable.
Body - on bump and dry legs Face and neck - as night cream Hands - mixed with E45 cream, makes fab hand cream. Has faded all the cannula scars on my hands where I was on a drip for 6 weeks earlier this pg. Hair - sprinkle a few drops on hairbrush and drag through my very dry, tangly hair. Works a treat.
Erm, laydees with bumps - I really loved Lush's Therapy massage bar on my bump (and smells heavenly). Used for 2 pregnancies & no stretchmarks . Can't be entirely genetic as my Mum has loads (all my fault, apparently ).
