Bio-oil is known for its best-selling skin specialist oil, clinically proven to work on reducing scars and stretch marks, and its been a boon for all new mommies for their postpartum scars. After decades of this miracle oil, Bio-Oil introduced another sensation (which not many of us know well), the Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel. You heard it right. Its an oil-based gel for dry skin people; infact for all skin types whoever think the regular oil did not suit you, then you should definitely try this. In this post I’ll tell you what actually this product is, and what it does to you.
Bio Oil Dry Skin Gel is a ‘gel-to-oil intensive moisturizer’ specifically formulated for dry skin. A new way to treat dry skin, Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel is comprised of 84% oil, including many of the skin soothing emollients and humectants. This breakthrough texture contains only 3% water and 100% actives. The highly potent gel is formulated with Shea Butter, Glycerin, Chamomile and skin soothing ingredients like Vitamin B3 for exceptional moisturizing results. The lightweight formula instantly absorbs and locks in moisture, replenishes the skin’s barrier to effectively treat dry skin and the unwanted symptoms associated with it such as redness, flaking, irritation and itching.

This Dry Skin Gel comes in a beautiful white tub. I really liked the packaging; not complaining about dipping fingers into the gel, but if you’re someone worried about the hygiene then you gotta use a spatula to scoop out. The gel comes in sizes as well; 50ml, 100ml and 200ml, convenient for everyone’s needs. And the gel is a beautiful pink hued and has a transparent jelly texture. It does have a subtle oil-y fragrance which subsides with time. This is such a peculiar formula, which looks like a gel but when you apply it turns into an oil. Formulated with so many oils, it does feel greasy on the skin. This gel is most suited for extreme dry, dehydrated skin since they need the extra dose of moisture. Oily/combination skin might want to stay from this even though the name ‘gel’ calls you out. And that’s the reason I apply on damp skin where I know my skin will drink up all the product and keep me moisturized. This gel can be used both ways; on face and on body.
Overall, I feel this a unique formula gel with decent performance. Dry – extremely dry skin people will love it. I personally love to use it on my extremely dry body skin, and it pretty much done its job.
