This review was written by the lovely Meedee via the Tried and Tested Blog Review Team.My body has carried three children and shows the impact of that with stretch marks all over my stomach, hips and butt cheeks. My youngest daughter is 18 so I have obviously carried these imperfections for many years. I have to admit that I was not very confident that this product would show any kinds of improvement for me, I figured it would be best for those that have the new red or blue hued marks, where mine have faded to silver over the years. I have used many different types of creams and oils and I moisturize daily. I was thinking that all that could be done, had been done.
On the first day of use I was surprised at how little you actually need to use of the product that means that the 125 ml tube will last a lot longer then you think it might at your first look. The product is not perfumed at all, so it has a very generic and general scent. I was amazed at how quickly it is absorbed by the skin, and discovered that the absorption rate is due to the TPM Dermal Delivery Technology, which means that it is absorbed through 4 times the layers of skin than your average moisturizing product. This is great for when you are doing the morning application. It means you don’t have to wait for the product to dry on your skin before getting dressed. You can apply it and get dressed straight away.
I began using the product twice a day, after a week I found myself standing in front of the mirror quite stunned, because I could see a vast improvement already. I felt that it was pretty impressive as it had only been a week. Bioelixia’s claims were that after 4 weeks you would see a 46% improvement, and by 8 weeks an 87% improvement. Here I was after a week stunned at the improvement already. I must be honest and admit that there were days where I forgot to apply the cream in the mornings. Nights were fine as I always applied it straight after my shower.
After the first week the improvements were a little slower but still came. Bioelixia does not claim to rid you of your stretch marks for life. It does claim to reduce the appearance of them by 87% over 8 weeks. I would agree that it does as it claims. My stomach definitely has less visible stretch marks and is actually a lot softer and feels smoother.
Obviously to maintain the results I will have to keep using the product. If you are someone that has issues with stretch marks then this is a product that you need to try. I have no doubt that you will notice an improvement just as I have.
This is a brilliant product that is produced by an Australian owned company.
