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.

Hey Elisa! Have you tried using pure shea butter for the stretch marks? I wish I had done that for my pregnancy, but I've heard good things about results w/ that.

I'd like to inquire about doing a sponsored blog post - about 150-300 words that talks a little bit about fashion and links back to our site We sell womens casual clothing in Berkeley and Los Angeles, Califonia and are looking for more exposure on

Here's a list of some blog post titles we've done in the past:
- What is Indie fashion?
- The Latest Styles In Vegan Purses
- Cute Indie Dress Styles For the Perfect Occassion
Our budget is around $15 for the post. Is this something you'd be open to?

Also we might be interested in a small banner ad if the price is right. Our budget is $40/year - something like this:

Let me know if you'd be open to either or both of these.

Also if you have some other sites just send them over and we might be interested in doing a sponsored post on there as well!
