Absorption (?

Absorption

Absorption describes how well a substance penetrates your skin. Here we measure absorption in terms of its rate of penetration into your skin. How fast did it absorb? Some products don't absorb well, and instead "sit" on top of skin forming a film, which can range from light to heavy. If you still have a layer of product sitting on top of your skin, the rate would be considered Very Slow.

I used Bio-Oil on some stretch marks and it was not every effective. While my skin was soft and hydrated it did not reduce the depth of my stretch marks.

Bio Oil has been touted by celebs, beauty magazines, and even ill-produced TV commercials as a must have for minimizing skin imperfections. So, in an effort to ward off the inevitable stretch marks that come with pregnancy, I used Bio Oil for BOTH my sons. While it is not a miracle worker, it did drastically improve my skin's hydration and minimize stretch marks that could've possibly turned up. At the end of each pregnancy, I was satisfied that I could still sport a bikini. Did I look like I did when I was 19? No. But I could've looked worse and think that prevention at the best possible level was key to me maintaining some sort of semblence of my former self.
