When I was in Kenya this summer, my skin was a disaster.
It was so irritated and dry that even wiping my face with a baby wipe was painful.

I didn't bring many products with me, but luckily, I brought my bottle of Bio-Oil.

I had initially bought Bio-Oil months ago after reading about it in so many magazines.  I bought it, tried it, and I wasn't that impressed.  It stayed on my makeup shelf for a long time.  I think because my skin was already in good condition, I didn't see the benefits (and I'm an instant-gratification kind of girl~)

However, when I got to Kenya, my skin was extremely sensitive and it was even painful to put sunblock on every morning.
I religiously put Bio-Oil on my face during the day (before my sunblock) and slathered it on at night.
I know that it worked because my skin would feel soooo much better and softer in the morning
(It would only be in the early afternoon that my skin started turning sensitive/irritated again)


Bio-Oil is used for:

* Scars   (New and Old)
* Stretch Marks   (Forming and Existing)
* Uneven Skin Tone
* Aging Skin
* Dehydrated Skin

It is the #1 selling scar and stretch mark product in the U.K., Canada, Netherlands, Australia, South Africa, Malaysia, New Zealand, Kenya, Botswana, Namibia, and Swaziland.

Bio-Oil® is a specialist skincare product that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. Its advanced formulation, which contains the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil™, also makes it highly effective for numerous other skin concerns, including aging skin and dehydrated skin.

It has a light floral(ish) scent since it contains Calendula, Lavender, Rosemary, and Chamomile Oils.

Personally, I'm not sure how great it works for scars/stretch marks, but it definitely helps soothe irritated skin and is very moisturizing.
I like using it before sunblock as a moisturizer or at night. 
It makes your skin super soft.

A little goes a long way, so I suggest buying the small bottle first.
Bio Oil comes in 2 oz. (Approx. $12) and 4 oz. (Approx $20)

Go to the website to get more detailed info.
It's now available in many drugstores, pharmacies, and online
