About Bio Oil
Bio‑Oil is a specialist skincare oil that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. It is also effective for aging and dehydrated skin. The Bio‑Oil formulation is a combination of plant extracts and vitamins suspended in an oil base. It contains the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil™, which changes the formulation’s overall consistency, making it light and non-greasy. This ensures that the goodness contained in the vitamins and plant extracts is easily absorbed.

This is a post i have been meaning to do for so long, Ive gone through so many bottles of Bio oil through out this pregnancy i think it deserves a post haha.I usually pick it up from Bodycare as i find its a bit cheaper but you can find it everywhere!
 Bio oil has to be the one product out there that i 100% trust will do something for my stretch marks... which is why i keep repurchasing it. I first ever used bio oil when i found out i was pregnant with Jake so nearly 5 years ago but to be honest i hardly used it i just though 'ahhh i wont get any', you know the whole 'it wont happen to me' thing and it didnt until about a week before i had him when i got maybe three but then when i was pregnant a second time i ended up with quite a few. Probably because i didn't use anything at all.. i still had half a bottle of bio oil sat in the bathroom that i now wish i would of carried on using.Also you always get told it runs in the family f your mum didnt you probably wont.... My mum had four babies and doesn't have one stretch mark neither did my nana or my sister...only me and my oldest sister were lucky enought to get them haha.
It might have been around a year/year and half ago i decided i wanted to try and see if i could get them to fade mre than they had so started using bio oil again and i noticed such a difference with it! They really started to fade fast which i was so shocked by, and happy. Ive never really been bothered by them, which is probably why it took so long for me to start using something on them as no one ever sees my belly but obviously it would be nicer not to have them there.
When i found out earlier this year that i was expecting again i knew this time i would keep using it through my pregnancy... its much easier to remember to apply things all the time when you have a beauty blog haha i think before i just didn't keep using it day and night because i would forget.This time round i seem to go through the bottles so fast because im just always applying it and i definitely feel that its helping keep any new marks coming and stopping the old ones getting worse. I will 100% carry on using once baby is here!
I apply more on a night because although its not greasy you can feel it under clothes so i dont like to put it on them put a clean top i want to wear all day over it.

I follow Bio oil on facebook and they have recently done a little leaflet of ' mum-to-be pregnancy advice' 
which is basically little comments tips and percentages from mums in the UK which ive been having a read through and alot of them im reading thinking 'yep i do that'. If your pregnant its definitely worth a read to see if you can find any new tip and trick or have a giggle at the ones you do. 

Some of the things mums said which i can relate to/like were...
Maternity fashion...
'54% of mums said leggings were a lifesaver' 

'Wear what you feel comfortable in.If you feel comfortable, you'll feel confident'

'Use a head band on jeans to make them last longer before maternity wear'

'I wore boob tubes over my bump as a belly band' - i did this as i have no idea wear ive put my bands lol 

Be prepared for...
'I didn't realise id get a blocked nose all the time'

Things people never tell you...
'Dont go on google, it will scare you to death'

'Take more photos of the bump'

Things you wish they hadn't...
'My birth was really painful.Heres what happened....'
