[REVIEW] : Oil for Head to Toe

Hello gorgeous! Back with me again, today we're gonna talk about skincare. This one, I've been using the product for years and still loving it. It's an oil which is multifunction, we can use it for head to toe. Have any idea? Yup! It is bio oil, the famous oil product that has been formulated since 1987 by a chemist from Germany, Dieter Beier. Produced in South Africa, this product has got 349 international award and ranked in first place as specialist product for scar and stretch marks. Even more, since 2002 has been sold in 86 countries, Zhen bang! 

What's inside this miraculous oil?

Bio oil can be use on scar, after it’s fully healed. It cannot be used onto open wounds or broken skin. The result depends on each person, as its involving external factor like age and skin historical. 
  • permanent scar is likely hard to be regenerated
  • During pregnancy, Bio-Oil must be used from the beginning of second trimester onto sensitive areas (which has high likelihood of having stretch marks), because in this second trimester the skin starting to expand regarding growth of the fetus.
  • Bio- Oil can be used for child above 2 years old
  • Bio-Oil only for topical use 
  • Bio-Oil have extra benefits from hair to toe
  • Use twice a day for minimum of three months for maximum result (routine or habit is the best)
For the packaging, it looks super simple to me. The bottle have same shape except for the sizes, and also same designs as well. The liquid is orange-colored which looks super fresh (Bright colors like this one's my fav).

Bio-Oil have various sizes, to meet our needs. From small to large sizes, all the bottles and designs are almost the same. It only differ in bottle size. Now, they provide their newest size, the travel size which contains 25ml of Bio Oil liquid. As for daily use, since the beginning I usually use the 60ml size (I put it on my desk at bedroom, so it's the best size for me). Then, Female Daily in accordance of Bio Oil Blog Competition sent me this newest size 25ml, which perfectly meet my traveling needs! *happykid* 

Since this isn't my first impression, I'll tell you what I feel when using this product. As you can see above, the texture is runny and super oily. But then, after I rub it onto my skin, it absorbs onto my skin right away. No oily or sticky feeling on my skin, but also it's hydrating my skin really well. Here's the picture of before-after (3 days only and you can see the difference). 



Before using Bio-Oil, my skin looks rough and ugly :( but then after three days of using night and day, it looks a lot moisturized and my scar began to fade. (I'm such a clumsy person who always injure myself even without realizing it huhu) that's why I love this product and always have this at home. One thing I can't understand, it looks like working rapidly on my skin on the first until third month of usage, but after that it looks like slowing down on repairing skin effect. After asking this problem to my doctor, he said that actually it's not slowing down, but my skin is a lot better so I'm feeling like that. Inside, the skin and Bio-Oil never stop working and still doing the same miracle as it is before. 
Another info, you can also use this on your face as primer or moisturizer. I'm curious about this since I usually use this only onto my body and scar, should I try it on my face for meantime and create another review?

So here's the final review:

Size : 25ml, 60ml, 125ml
Price : IDR 60.000, IDR 120.000, IDR 200.000
