Bio Oil - #ScarsUncovered Campaign

I've had 2 babies. Both of them were BIG babies. My body has paid for this, in the form of stretch marks on my tummy. I am proud of my scars, they show that I successfully carried, grew and delivered 2 healthy babies, something I'm extremely proud of and very, very lucky! That said, it has been something I've been pretty unconfident about. Especially the first time around, after my tiny, slim, flat tummy [that I hugely took for granted!] changed so dramatically after having a baby.

I knew I was going to get some stretch marks, it's hereditary, no amount of creams were going to stop that from happening. And hell, I used every cream going! But knowing my Mum had them, I knew I wasn't going to get away lightly...

Bio Oil is an award winning specialist oil for skin, aimed at stretch marks, scars, ageing, dehydrated skin and uneven skin tone. It has been specially created with PurCellin Oil, a unique, breakthrough ingredient that sinks into the skin as a dry oil so it doesn't leave you feeling greasy. It also includes a blend of natural plant oils such as lavender, calendula, vitamins E & A, rosemary and chamomile.

Bio Oil want to help support people that feel they need to hide their scars. 60% of women feel they need to hide their scars underneath their clothing. They've launched #ScarsUncovered to show that nobody should feel this way. 

I've used Bio Oil on and off for the past 12 years and I'm always very happy with how it makes my skin feel. There's no cure, nothing is going to get rid of my scars but Bio Oil definitely helps them look less visible and my skin feel more smooth and supple. I've also started using it on my face as part of my evening skincare routine, after reading of the benefits to ageing skin. And well, if it's good enough for the Kardashians, it's good enough for me!

I apply it at night time as, although it claims not to, there is a slight greasiness. It's not sticky or uncomfortable at all, but it does take a while to sink fully into the skin, which is fine at night time but not so great when you need to get dressed quickly in the mornings.
