Bio-oil for body and scars

 I saw it advertised on TV and thought I would give it a try, I have been using it for 6 months now.

It is not a miracle (and does not claim to be so) but it does improve the appearance of scars and stretch marks as it does claim, mine have faded slightly. However the best result surprised me. I have dermatitis, very sensitive (and prone to spots) skin and also odd spots of hyper-pigmentation. I use it on my face and it lessens the redness, clears up my dry skin and intensively moisturises the sore flaky patches more than my previous speciality product did (a vitamin E cream).

It does say on the leaflet that is leaves a protective barrier on the skin which is what the previous reviews mentioned. Put too much on and it does sit on the surface on the skin but if applied after a hot bath or shower, a couple of drops easily does the whole face and neck and massage in (instructions on how to massage face on leaflet included) it spreads even with no greasiness just a slight lubricated feel as previously mentioned.

It takes a small amount of effort to apply it a couple of times a day (e.g. before your morning routine and after cleansing in the evening) for a couple of months and I was delighted with the results. The compliments from my friends and colleagues were amazing.

I bought mine originally from the high street and then a much larger size(125ml)bottle from Amazon, as it was a lot cheaper than retail. It is about £8.00 from the shops for the smallest size, but even at that it lasts for absolutely ages, as only a tiny amount is needed each time.

It makes no ridiculous claims of making you 10 years younger in 5 minutes, or removing all the signs of ageing in one fell swoop, but it does actually do what it says on the packaging - and more. I am delighted by the results and will continue to use it daily.

Simple Derma Intensive Relief Lotion for face

I have used this product for about a year, it has been excellent at keeping my skin hydrated. I do suffer from dry patches on cheeks and around my nose, once I put Simple Derma on the affected parts it does its job and more. The only criticism I do have is it can quite greasy upon first application, but it soon disappears. I was sceptical at first about using any type of cream on my face, but it soon went when I started using this cream. Even the redness that I do suffer from has been controlled by a few moments each day putting on Simple Derma Intensive relief.

Nivea Soft for hands

I love Nivea Soft and have been using it for about a year now. I have always had problems finding a cream that is right for me, because I get extremely dry skin especially in the winter on my hands (so bad that it actually splits the skin so I have little cuts on my knuckles).

I have tried numerous other creams which have all stung and made me have to wash it off. Finally I have found a cream which doesn’t sting! I have two of the creams one for my morning usage and one in my bag so I can re-apply it at any time of the day. I hate creams that leave your hands feeling greasy so it makes it even harder to find a cream I like, as most of them are very greasy. But this is one thing that Nivea Soft is not!

Hurray Nivea, thank you for making my dream cream :)
