I had a tough time during my pregnancy last time..I mean on the strech marks and icthiness of my bulging belly. During that time, I did not look for any info on how to eliminate the problem from the mag or internet. Just based on my kakak kilang experience only. They said just buy a lotion and start scrubbing it at the bottom of my belly as well as at paha and at the back side.So I just bought a cheap lotion with apple scent from Tupperware. But it did not work well, I mean I still have the scratch marks that my hubby always commented look like a cheetah.. adeyy...
Influenced by the advertisements on TV that this magical oil can help to yada..yada..yada, I thought of giving it a try..
My testimonial after been using it for 1 month (recommended to use it consistently for 3 months for scar removal)
Oiliness - I found it quite surprising as after the application, my belly does not "feel" oily neither my palm. It does moisturize the skin and less itchy (no that it can eliminate it 100%)
Scent - I am that type of person who hates product with fragrance accept of course perfume. Bio Oil does emit a light "oil" scent but not really disturbing.
Scratch mark removal - My scratch mark tone seems (or is it my imigination?) to lighten. But I cannot confirm this as my belly is actively expanding and may stretch my skin.
Is Bio Oil halal?
