Disclosure: I was provided a trial size BON Skin Oil to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% my own.
In the past, I’ve always been hesitant to use oils on my face for fear that they would make my normally non-oily skin feel greasy. However, as I’ve gotten older my skin has gotten drier, so I decided to cast aside my fears of breakouts give oil a chance. When I read about BON Nourishing Skin Oil, I felt that it was the best option for my skin. Turns out, my fears were totally unfounded and BON Nourishing Skin Oil is my face’s new best friend.
Originally from South Africa and only recently introduced to the US, BON specializes in skincare products made from raw, natural ingredients with proven effectiveness. Made from all natural ingredients like avocado, rose-hip and grape seed oils, BON Skin Oil is incredibly nourishing AND safe for your skin. BON Skin Oil promises to nourish and hydrate your skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve elasticity and even out skin tone. But could a product so affordable with so few ingredients ACTUALLY be effective and live up to these amazing claims? Uh, yeah. Yeah, it can. And then some.
When I was 26, I was playing 2nd base for my company softball team. Long story short, there was a play at 2nd and I ended up with a knee to my frontal orbital bone, a concussion, a stint in the trauma unit, 28 stitches and a whole lot of percoset. I was left with a decent sized ‘X’ shaped scar above my left eye. Over the years, I got so used to seeing it every time I looked in the mirror that I practically forgot it was there. And then came BON.
The first time I used BON, I instantly felt a nourishing dose of hydration to my fatigued skin. Within a few days of using the product, I could already see a dramatic improvement in my skin’s tone, and after a week or so, I definitely noticed an improvement to my skin’s elasticity. But what REALLY impressed me was the effect of BON on my scar. In a word: miraculous. A few weeks of daily use and my six year-old scar had faded dramatically. I was shocked. And thrilled! I started applying BON to a scar from a hand surgery a few years ago. Now, it’s all but gone. Stretch marks? Forget about it. A scar on my leg from a biking accident in college? Barely noticeable. A very sizable scar on my calf from a third degree burn sustained from a motorcycle exhaust pipe in high school? Not a trace. I tested BON on scars that were decades old, determined to best it. BON produced every. single. time. I’m dumbfounded.
Now I’m a regular user of this amazing product, and my skin has never looked (or felt) better. I may as well go work for the company because I sing it’s praises every chance I get. I can’t tell you how many compliments I get on my skin these days, and I’m so thrilled to be able to share my secret! Effective AND 100% safe and chemical-free? I’m sold.
