Bio Oil Review

Yeah, It has been around for sometime. But since it is an oil, quite a few ladies whom I personally know have been skeptical about it. That is why I decided to go ahead and give it a try. And I haven't regretted it even one bit .

So, what is it ? Bio Oil uses the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil which is highly effective in treating scars, stretch marks and any signs of aging . The product claims to fight -

  • Scars
  • Stretch Marks
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Aging skin
  • Dehydrated skin

Pro's - 

1. A 60 mL bottle cost Rs 450/- but one can grab it on Nykaa at anything  between 375-400 during promotions.
2. It is easily absorbed.
3. No breakouts
4. Very light fragrance
5. Colorless and hence no stains on clothes/pillows.

Con's -

1. Not suitable for very oily skin.
2. May not work with very stubborn spots/pigmentation.

My experience with Bio Oil 

It has become a part of my routine. As my skin condition keeps changing ( both due to hormonal and climatic reasons ), I use it 2-3 times a week for massaging my skin at night. Just 2-3 drops are sufficient for the entire face and get completely absorbed in 5 mins.

It has lightened my pimple marks and some pigmentation marks on the forehead.

I also use it as a body moisturizer and my stretch marks seem to be fading(I wish I was more regular with it ). 

I also use it to remove my makeup /BB cream before washing my face with a good foaming face wash.

Rating - 4/5. Do try one ladies.

Biotique Bio Berry Plumping Lip Balm

Lip plumpers are products that are supposed to give a bee-stung effect to your lips so that they appear fuller and smoother. Now which woman does not aspire for Angelina Jolie's famous pout ?? But what kept me from trying out plumpers are that they are expensive products and give a mild burning /stinging sensation when applied. So, when I saw the Biotique Bio Berry Plumping Lip Balm in a shop near my home, I grabbed it with both hands. It is priced at just Rs 99/- and is free from chemicals (as per the brand's claims).

Read on to find out how it fared on my scale -

Pros -

1. Priced economically (Rs 99/- for 4.1 g)
2. Free from chemicals ( therapeutic product as per claims )
3. Hygienic bullet application ( certainly better than the earlier tub )
4. Smooths out the fine lines on my lips
5. Gives a mild plumping effect
6. Provides moisture to lips for 3-4 hours.
7. Tasteless and very mild smelling. But gives a light tingling effect.
8. Looking at the older reviews on beauty blogs, they seem to have relaunched the product with a new look and improved formula.

Cons -

1. It is very mildly tinted. Does not show up on pigmented lips.
2. Works best when applied under a lipstick/lip polish.
3. The bullet is too long and sticks out of the tube. The cap was already soiled with some of the product when I purchased it.
4. The formula is a little stiff/hard so one needs to rub it 2-3 times on the lips (but the good thing is that it will last longer).

Rating - 4.25/5 . I find it quite useful as it is transparent and takes care of my lip lines. I regularly apply it under any other lip color I am using. Will repurchase for sure.
