Bio-Oil - 'My Scar My Story' Campaign ❤

Most of us have scars that we obtain from life's episodes which will serve as memories and lessons; some good and some painful ones. I have to admit that I do have scars all over my body too. The reasons why I have scars? The scars are from the mosquitoes' bite. *sigh*

First of all, I have no idea why mosquitoes love to bite me all the time, everywhere and everyday since young. I will be the one and only one feel that one particular mosquito is there buzzing around to bite me only and not the rest. Worst of all, the scars are there for many many years.

Thanks to Bio-Oil that I had the opportunity to try out the Bio-Oil itself and the results were beyond amazing! I had to admit that the product is really good that you can finally see a scar that has been with you for years is slowly diminishing! You are able to see the before and after photo as shown in this blog post. Let my photos do the talking here. :D

Two weeks after using Bio-Oil.
Two weeks after using the Bio-Oil and I got to say that the old and new scars are slowly disappearing. I am so happy as I can finally leave the scars behind me and move on with my life. I used to feel intimidated when people are looking at the scars on my legs and hands. But now with Bio-Oil, it boosts up my confidence level and I am happy to tell everyone that I do not have cover the scars anymore. *sounds so dramatic*


Other than that, Bio-Oil has embarked on a campaign themed 'My Scar My Story' to offer women inspiration and solutions to their scars via a microsite www.myscarmystory.com.my. 


This online platform brings Malaysian women together to share their scar story and solutions to their problems, as a way of inspiring women who are undergoing emotional distress due to their scars. 

A research revealed that one in two women suffers ongoing psychological issues as a result of scars with the majority (56%) considering themselves 'abnormal' due to their scars. This could lead to other more serious issues such as depression and anti-social behaviours.

As part of its solutions to help women cope with scars, Bio-Oil has also collaborated with Dr Nazirin Ariffin, a renowned dermatologist from Pantai Hospital to offer professional advise and weekly tips on scar management via the microsite. Dr Nazirin noted that support for patients with scarring extends far beyond wound care. Providing optimal advise and guidance to patients as well as managing their expectations will reduce patients' emotional distress.

Bio-Oil has been clinically proven to help improve the appearance of all types of scars, be it old or new. Bio-Oil contains plant extracts such as Chamomile, Lavender, Rosemary and Calendula oils, together with Vitamins A and E and the breakthrough ingredient - PurCellin Oil™

Unlike regular oils, PurCellin Oil™ delivers the ingredients into the skin without leaving a sticky and greasy feeling. In a clinical trial that was conducted in proDERM Institute for Applied Dermatological Research, Hamburg, Germany, 92% of the subjects showed an improvement in the appearance of their scars just after 8 weeks. 


Continuous use of Bio-Oil can help minimize, reduce and lighten scars. For best results, massage onto the affected area in circular motion twice daily for a minimum of 3 months. Bio-Oil should not be used on broken skin.

The 2-month campaign will end on December 31st with selection of the three best scar stories where winners will get to enjoy a Luxury Retreat Package at a 5-star resort for two worth of up to RM10,000 and a consultative session with Dr Nazirin Ariffin. There will also be weekly prizes for the five most inspiring stories of the week. I have submitted mine too. How about yours?
