Clean beauty junkies and mums, rejoice! The iconic Bio-Oil has finally launched a natural version of its cult favourite product.
Truth: you know a product is A+ when the brand maintains cult status for over 30 years with just one product. Yup, we’re talking about the iconic South African brand, Bio-Oil. The body and face oil that is clinically proven to fade stretch marks and scars, moisturise your skin, and even out skin tone, has now launched a natural version. What a great way to mark Bio-Oil’s 10th year in Singapore!
Say hello to Bio-Oil Skincare Oil (Natural), an all-natural formulation of the highly-raved original. With the term “natural” being a buzzword in the beauty industry, it is often used by brands without a clear definition of what “natural” really means. But not with Bio-Oil. Clear as day, the product is formulated with 100% natural ingredients and without nasties like artificial colourants, fragrances, preservatives, parabens, phthalates, phytoestrogens or steroids. That means it’s totally safe for lactating and pregnant women too!
Made with skin-loving natural oils and plants extracts
Bio-Oil Skincare Oil (Natural) is great for all skin types, including sensitive skin. Key ingredients include sunflower seed oil (which maintains the skin barrier and improves skin texture, smoothness and hydration), pomegranate seed oil (its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to prevent and improve stretch marks), and lavender oil (which has skin conditioning properties for a firm and smooth complexion). We’re also all heart-eyes for patchouli oil (which hydrates and reduces inflamed skin), as well as rosehip oil which contains the mighty vitamin A (which aids in skin repair).
Perfect if you need a little confidence boost
New mums and mums-to-be, if you’re wary of what you’re putting on your face and body, this oil is for you. Stretch marks are a natural part of pregnancy, and we love all shapes, shades and sizes over here, but if you need a little confidence boost, this handy body and face oil will stick with you through the good and the not-feeling-100% days. It’s also important to prioritise self-care. Amidst the hustle of baby time, remember to spend some time for yourself too. Our tip: spend a few extra minutes to relax by dabbing on Skincare Oil (Natural) to soothe your skin. You’ll thank us later.
Fans of the original, fret not, your favourite will still be around! In fact, both products yield the same benefits and results. It’s simply up to your preference. It’s safe to say that both Bio-Oil Skincare Oil (Natural) and the original Skincare Oil kick butt in improving the appearance of scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, wrinkles and dry skin.
Review time! How does the Bio-Oil Skincare Oil (Natural) fare?
We got first dibs on the new Bio-Oil Skincare Oil (Natural) and we’ve been religiously using it ever since. As avid fans of the original Skincare Oil, we’re happy to report that this newbie feels exactly the same as the original – but with a yellow tinge and a relaxing scent thanks to the winning formula of essential oils in the product. Don’t be fooled by the moniker too. We were afraid the product would feel heavy on our oily skin. But no – the lightweight formula sinks right into our skin, giving it a smooth and glossy (but never greasy) finish.
We’ve been applying it on acne scars, hyperpigmentation spots, and dry spots around our lips. We also took it a step further by dabbing it onto our cuticles. The key is to use it twice, every day and trust the process ‘cos acne scars do not fade away in a minute. No doubt, it’s a staple in our skincare routine.
Pro-tips: How to make the most of Bio-Oil Skincare Oil (Natural)
So, you’ve managed to get your hands on the Bio-Oil Skincare Oil (Natural). Here’s how to use it the right way:
- Massage the oil in a circular motion on the face or body until it’s fully absorbed.
- Use twice daily for at least three months for the best results.
- If you’re using it as part of your skincare routine, make sure the product is applied to cleansed skin and is completely absorbed before moving on to other steps.
- If you’re using the oil to avoid pregnancy stretch marks, remember to apply the oil to these areas from the start of your first trimester until after birth.
