Bio- Oil review

Hi Guys  today I wanted to talk to you about an amazing product which is Bio-Oil. This is an amazing multi- use product.
About five years ago I got burned using an at home wax kit that over heated and splashed up at me luckily nothing spilt on my face and I was lucky that I had a long sleeve top on that my arms were protected unfortunately my hand was not so lucky the pain was excruciating and in a moment of sheer pain/panic and fear I tried to rip off the wax but what I did way take off layers of skin too
Long story short I was left with this massive scar on my left hand.

When my hand started to heal I was recommend to use Bio-Oil to Improve the appearance and it Improved but being the flake that I am I wasn't vigilant about putting it on and you really have to put it on twice a day for at least 3 months but I have seen people that have been vigilant  about using it non stop and it is amazing the difference it has made. However I have a new bottle now and am going to be using it again.
Plus it will be an amazing help for my  skin in the winter months when skin tends to dry out.
If you havent tried it out please do you wont be sorry!
