Bio-Oil - Is it the real deal?

Well hello Lovelies!

My wedding is quickly approaching (less than 6 months away) and I am trying maintain my skin care regimen.  I have been doing very well with my face regimen (I haven't had a breakout in more than 6 months) but now I am starting to pay more attention to my overall body.

A few years ago, I was about 50 pounds heavier (thankfully I have managed to lose that weight and keep it off).  I put on the weight pretty quickly, so I have stretch marks.  Luckily for me, my stretch marks aren't terribly noticeable, but I want to be as close to perfect as possible when I am lounging in sun with my new hubby on our honeymoon in Mo'orea!  With that said, I have heard about Bio-Oil for years, but never bought it.  Mainly because of the price tag - about $14 for a 2 ounce bottle. But after doing some reviews, I decided to bite the bullet.  Many black women have seen success with Bio-Oil, so I figured I would give it a shot.

The key with this product seems to be consistency.  The instructions on the bottle say to use twice a day for at least 3 months... woah.  I will definitely report back in 3 months to see if I have started to see any results.
