One day, while I was looking myself at the mirror, I noticed some unsightly red marks on my tummy area. I was gasping for air and I can't believe what I saw, stretch marks!! Was I really got that big? I was in denial for a moment but as the time goes by, it dawned on me that it was really stretch marks. How can I get them when I don't even have a baby yet? I wanted to burst into tears and blame myself for being a glutton. I immediately search for a stretch marks remover. There were many recommendations - palmers, glyderm, butter shea from body shop, etc. I wanted to try them all if only I have a money. I even thought of getting a laser. I was depressed. God, I'm not used to those marks. I felt it was a cursed, a cursed of being fat. My self esteem is at the lowest point. Then I just read and read for reviews. I initially thought of getting Palmers stretch mark lotion, but the Watsons store that I went to does not have any stocks so I decided to get this instead:
Bio oil reduces the appearance of scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, aging and dehydrated skin. According to the reviews that I read online, using this oil made an improvement on their stretchies. It was popular abroad so I thought why not and try it myself. It's only been three weeks since I started using this. I applied it twice a day but sometimes I missed it at night. The scent is not bad. I haven't seen any improvements yet but I wanted to try it up the last drop of this bottle. I also applied whitening lotion on my tummy area just to help in reducing the marks. If I don't see any improvements after I finished one bottle then I have to switch to another product. I know this is is not an overnight process but I'm hoping that bio oil is worth it. I read online that stretch marks cannot be removed, it's like forever in your skin. What you can only do is to prevent yourself of getting them or if you have them now, you can only improve it's appearance.
Price: Php 700++
Note: I'll update this post once I finished one bottle. Hopefully, there will be some results on using Bio Oil.
