Topaz Beauty: Bio-Oil is here! Finally!


I was at a lunch the other week with a few mommy bloggers when Rowena of Animetric's World whispered to me the best beauty news I've heard all year: Bio-Oil is in the Philippines!!! I was so freaky happy! She said that she was one of the few bloggers invited to a secret dinner with beauty queen and Bio-Oil endorser Lara Quigaman, who revealed that Bio-Oil is her beauty secret!

Here's a video of Lara teasing us about it:

I was actually invited to that hush-hush affair but since my kids have no yayas, I don't attend events after 5pm anymore. Had I known that the super lucky mommies would get a bottle of Bio-Oil for free, I'd have taken the kids with me and attended that dinner!

Yes, I'm that excited about Bio-Oil!

I've known about Bio-Oil for many, many years. I have a big ugly scar on my left leg and also ugly acne marks on my cheeks, so before my wedding in 2007, I researched what was the best scar removers. Bio-Oil was the top product everywhere. Magazine editors and celebrities rave about it all the time. Here's why:
1. It improves the appearance of scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone
2. It hydrates skin, thus improving the appearance of dry and/or aging skin
3. It is not greasy and is easily absorbed, so you don't feel icky and your clothes won't get ruined
4. It is hypoallergenic and suitable for sensitive skin, so you can even use it on your face

I wanted Bio-Oil so badly but it wasn't available here at that time, and in the mid-2000's, I wasn't as savvy about online shopping and international shipping as I am now. When Vince and I went to London for our honeymoon, I totally forgot to buy Bio-Oil there! My one regret! So I'm beyond thrilled that it's finally available here!

As soon as I get a bottle, I'm going to put it on my leg scar, the stretch marks on my belly and thighs. But I can actually live with scars and stretch marks. What I'm really excited about now is applying Bio-Oil on my face because of my acne marks, fine lines, and sun damage. This chart got me so excited:
There is most improvement in skin tone! It's time to say bye-bye to my 36-year-old face! I'll make a follow-up review post a few weeks from now. Let me just get a bottle of Bio-Oil!

Bio-Oil is available at leading drugstores (Mercury Drug Stores and Watsons nationwide) and at better supermarkets for only P495.00

  3. Hi Ms. Frances! I just stumbled upon your blog today and I was reading your previous entries. This got me excited! I had chicken pox barely two weeks ago. I go to the office everyday and interact with people, so you could just imagine how painfully self-conscious I am, especially when they are looking at my face and they see the scars. I took to wearing long sleeved shirts, just to hide the scars in my arms. =( Anyway, I'm going to try this! Thank you for this post!

  4. Hi ladies! I'm selling bio oil in 200 ml. If interested, you can reach me thru my mob. No. 09493500395.
