    i was just wondering who else is bathing in oil? I try to have a daily soak in the bath with baby or bio oil! Plus slapping the bio oil on at least twice a day. X

    I'm not, but I should be!

    I already have plenty of stretchmarks from being overweight as a teenager, but perhaps I should still be taking 'precautions' lol!

    Sounds lovely, but I am slapping bio oil on twice a day and E45 lotion at least once a day too, and I'm amazed at how much bio oil I'm getting through like that! It's fairly expensive stuff isn't it?? Does anyone know of a sneaky online place to get it nice and cheap? I'd love to have a massive hoard of it and use some to bathe in!

    Apparently Wilkinsons do their own version called Rescue Oil for about £1.99. My friend used it and swore by it.

    PS I would bathe with it but we have no bath! Instead I put on Lush's King of Skin while I'm still wet, or rub in some olive/bio oil while I'm still wet.

    Boots have a 3 for 2 offer at the moment!
    Apparently my oh saw some similar to bio oil in a shop called 'savers'. Not seen it myself though. I get through a lot too. X

    I can't stand taking baths, I have to shower instead, but I cover myself in lotion. My skin is dry as a bone.

    I'm allergic to oils! I wish i could use stuff like baby oil and bio oil but i just come out in a horrid itchy rash! Turns out my rash the other week was caused by bio oil coz as soon as i used it again the rash returned! I am coping with Palmers Coco Butter - in fact i wish i could bathe in that! Yummy! xxx
