Finder Beauty Fave: Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel
If you're after deep moisture with an easy-to-wear feeling, you need to try the Dry Skin Gel.
Why we love this product
I'm thankful that I don't have to deal with dry skin all year long. But as soon as that cold snap hits, it's all over for me. My skin (especially on my arms, legs and hands) becomes drier than the Sahara desert.
I've been looking for the perfect product for some time now. Obviously it needs to do its job in terms of hydration, but I'm also pretty fussy when it comes to texture. I hate feeling sticky and I need something that is quick-drying.
When I was first introduced to Bio-Oil's new product, I was intrigued. Here's exactly what I thought.
The quick verdict
Why is it good? It gives you the best of both worlds: deep moisture with an easy-to-wear feeling.
How much is it? The 50mL tub retails for $8.95, the 100mL tub for $14.95 and the 200mL tub for $24.95.
Where to buy it: Chemist Warehouse
Back in 2018, Bio-Oil dropped a new product for the first time in thirty years – the Dry Skin Gel.
If you're not familiar with the brand, I am shocked – but I will also give you a quick run-down.
Bio Oil is responsible for creating the iconic Skincare Oil. It has a cult following, with millions of products sold every year. Why? It works wonders in reducing the appearance of scars and stretch-marks.
The Dry Skin Gel redefines dry skin care, as it's a gel made from the oil that we all know and love. The unique texture is designed to create a protective film to fight against moisture loss and totally restore dry skin.
When you open the tub for the first time, you'll notice that the product looks pink. But when it's applied to the skin, it's totally clear.
The Dry Skin Gel also has a jelly-like appearance, but this is all thanks to the incredible gel-to-oil formula.
Because it's essentially an oil, the gel absorbs quickly into the skin, leaving a lasting moisturised feeling. This product gives you deep moisture with an easy-to-wear feeling.
I don't use the Dry Skin Gel on a routine basis. I'll just apply it whenever I feel like I need to, whether it be in the morning, at bedtime or throughout the day.
The Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel is dermatologically tested for use on sensitive skin and it's also free from parabens. There's a slight fragrance but it's nothing offensive.
The Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel is affordable, especially for what it can do. You only need a little bit of product to moisturise and nourish your whole body.
The 50mL tub retails for $8.95, the 100mL tub for $14.95 and the 200mL tub for $24.95.
Where to buy
However, my favourite place to purchase from is Chemist Warehouse as there's a good chance you'll find it discounted!
