Alternative to Bio Oil

I've almost developed an art for covering them up, but I do have scarring on my face from when I suffered from mild acne years ago.
They are one of the things that I am most self-conscious about, and am always worried about covering them up.

Although it's expensive, I had heard a lot of good things about Bio Oil, so I thought I'd give it a go.
I have tried using Bio Oil a while back in an attempt to get rid of the scarring, but it ALWAYS made me break out, which means the scarring ended up getting worse.
Until now I thought my only solution would be to save up for laser treatment.

BUT I came across this serum by LUSH:

Full of Grace

I apply this at night before my moisturiser. 

Directions: Warm the solid serum between your palms (ensure your hands are clean), then apply the product thats on your hands onto your face

As a serum I love it as it feels like it really conditions my skin over night. 
As an added bonus, by morning the scarring is so much lighter. I usually find cleansing makes them a little redder temporarily because of the pressure, yet even cleansing hours after using this doesn't aggravate my skin. 

I can't say for sure whether this fully fades scars as I haven't been using it for that long, BUT I can say with confidence that (for me at least) there is a big improvement.
PLUS this gives me absolutely no breakouts!
It doesn't smother my skin, like bio oil, and it's cheaper (£7.90) and it lasts ages! I've been using it for weeks and it looks practically the same as the day I bought it!

I highly recommend this even just as a serum.
This product is a MUST if you've found the same problems with Bio Oil

  1. I have never tried Bio Oil (I think it contains mineral oil?), but this bar serum sounds so good! I love lush (I feel physical pain when parted from my Lemony Flutter lol) and can't wait to try this!

  2. I'm not 100% whats in it, but something in bio oil really irritates my skin.
    This serum seems to sooth instead.

    I've heard good things about lemony fluttery! I haven't got round to trying it yet though, definitely on my to do list now :)
