The Beauty Of Bio Oil

Now don’t get me wrong when it comes to stretch marks, there’s no reason not to celebrate them as part of the story that made you you – whether you gained them after having a baby, or growing two foot in one summer. But if yours are bothering you, there are ways to get hands-on and tackle them, should you want to.

Treating stretch marks has become much more easier in the last few years, especially with so many new treatments showing up for us to try. One of these treatments is Bio Oil. Bio-Oil is a product that I have been aware of for some time, mostly because it claims to tackle scars, stretch marks, and uneven skin tone, something many of us are dealing with.

This skincare product infuses skin with rich moisturizers to hydrate and nourish. Bio-Oil specialises in treating scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tones, aging or dehydrated skin which can also be used as an after-sun treatment and bath oil. It is formulated with PureCellin oil to make it easy for skin to absorb.

For me personally I have found it best to use throughout my pregnancy to prevent stretch marks from ever appearing which to date they have not. The company recommends starting use during the second trimester. Use it twice a day for best results in areas like the belly, lower back, breasts, hips and thighs.

Bio‑Oil has been used safely by pregnant women for over 20 years to prevent the formation of stretch marks by keeping the skin well-hydrated and supple. Its unique formulation works to maximize the skin’s elasticity, thereby reducing the possibility of pregnancy stretch marks forming. Not only does it help prevent the formation of stretch marks, it also provides a comprehensive skincare solution for use throughout pregnancy. When regularly applied, Bio-Oil can alleviate itchy and dehydrated skin as well as improve uneven skin tone that can result from hormonal fluctuations.

The Price of Bio Oil – One aspect that deserves special attention is the cost of Bio Oil, which runs at about €8.00 for over 4 ounces. At such a low price, this item is very affordable for most skin care budgets.

Where to Buy Bio Oil – Bio Oil can be purchased through virtually any major retailer in Ireland. Because it is so easily found, the product can be a good choice for a regular routine, because it can be easily replenished.



  1. How do you feel about using plain cocoa butter? I used that for both my pregnancies and got zero stretch marks on my belly (a real shocker for me, since my mom got stretch marks and I thought they were genetic). I did get stretch marks on my breasts, though, and I didn’t use cocoa butter once my first daughter was born – and booooy did those girls stretch when my milk came in! Fair warning to keep using whatever you use on your breasts after the birth…!

    Congratulations on your pregnancy, best of luck, and thanks for including a maternity section on your blog! I’m enjoying it and can’t wait to read more of all your posts. 🙂
