Bio‑Oil is a specialist skincare oil (brainchild of the scientist, Dieter Beier) that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. The special non-acnegenic and hypo-allergenic formulation is said to be extremely effective for ageing and dehydrated skin.
So much so that Bio‑Oil has gone on to win 77 skincare awards and has become the #1 selling scar and stretch mark product in 11 countries since its global rollout began in 2002.
Bio-Oil was officially launched into the market as a “skin tonic” but it has come a far and long way since then. By “a far and long way”, we mean it has broken free from just being a “scar and stretch mark” skin tonic to its recent positioning as a supplement for beauty tips and tricks.
Kres Kuang, one of Malaysia’s top beauty professionals, has recently revealed a few makeup tricks of the trade that utilizes Bio-Oil as an important ingredient. Or rather, it’s something he’d like to call, “effective makeup” that helps women look professionally gorgeous in under five minutes.
Hey, works for us!
1. TURN YOUR POWDER BLUSHER INTO A CREAMY ONE
There are many things you can DIY but when it comes to “making” your own makeup, you might need specific products. For example, if you want to turn your powder blusher into a creamy one, you would need some sort of special serum. But if you have a bottle of Bio-Oil lying around, simply mix a few drops of Bio-Oil with your powder blusher and dab it onto your cheeks. The result? A natural, healthy, pink glow. If you want a more matte finish, dab some loose powder on.
2. EASY-TO-MAINTAIN ALLURING EYES
Eyeshadow comes in not only many, many different colours and hues, but also textures. If you’re unlucky, you can end up with an entire palette that’s different to apply and blend. What a waste! Or not. Try mixing your eyeshadow with a few drops of Bio-Oil. It helps with the texture and therefore, makes the application and blending a whole lot easier. Also, it would make your alluring eye makeup a lot easier to maintain (no need for touchups or reapplications) and last for longer.
3. SAVE YOUR FAVOURITE MASCARA
Some people say that you can “recover” your favourite mascara by sticking the entire thing in a cup of hot water and letting it sit for a while. We’re not sure how effective that is but we do know that there’s a better way. Alternatively, you can put a few drops of Bio-Oil into the hardened or dried mascara and give it a good shake. Then marvel at how well it works. Who needs to buy new mascara every two months when yours can always be just like brand new?
4. CREATE YOUR OWN LUSCIOUS LIP GLOSS
We’ve had really bad experiences with some off-the-counter lip gloss! Have you ever come across those that has got, well, really appealing shades but at the same time, threaten to superglue your lips close because of its extreme stickiness? If you have a favourite lipstick, here’s what you can do: Mix your lipstick with a few drops of Bio-Oil and transform it into a lightly textured, highly moisturizing lip gloss. You may also experiment with different lipstick shades to create your own colour.
Hard-pressed for time to create elaborate makeup? Looking good doesn’t have to be complicated or time consuming. And with Bio-Oil, that is now a thing of the past.
