- Works like a dream
- Leaves skin feeling soft and moisturized
- Fantastic smell
This skin oil has won hundreds of awards and is a best-seller across the globe. It works on all sorts of stretch marks and scars and offers good value for the money.
While it is safe for pregnancy, there is some retinol in it, so you don’t want to apply it to skin that will shortly be exposed to the sun.
This is going to be one of those products that you either love or hate. Most people love it, but it is oil and that means it’s not exactly right for everyone. People with naturally oily skin aren’t going to see a lot of benefits from using this. But, if you’ve got dry skin, this is a dream.
Given enough time, this hypoallergenic oil will diminish older scars and prevent new ones by keeping skin smooth and supple. It’s fantastic for post-op healing (as long as you don’t apply it to broken skin) and it’s dermatologist-tested.
And, almost surprisingly, it absorbs quickly into skin without a greasy or oily residue. You have to love that, don’t you?
What’s inside (and what isn’t)? You’ll find plenty of vitamin E mixes in with the PerCellin oil. But you’ll also find retinol (vitamin A) inside. So don’t apply it to exposed skin before going in the sun as it promotes the production of collagen. It’s better before bedtime.
Texture and fragrance? It’s a runny oil with a lovely “oil” fragrance to it.
Safe for pregnancy or nursing? Yes, but it cannot be ingested. You should avoid applying this to your breasts if you’re a nursing mother.
Will it break the bank? The MSRP is a whopping $28 for a 6.7 ounce bottle. Luckily, you will usually pay less – somewhere between $12 and $18. If you pay roughly $15, then the price per ounce is around $2.25. That’s not bad at all.
