This post contains photos of a sensitive nature. They contain photos of my healed self harm scars. Post will fully explain
Now where to begin. A few weeks back I had an idea for self-acceptance through a product review. As many who have read my blog will know I’m a recovering self-harmer. My tool of choice was a blade, cutting was my addiction. Since I last cut 14 months ago I’ve struggled to accept my now 100 plus scars. These were mainly on my legs starting just above my knees. I’ve not worn skirts, shorts etc for the fear of them being seen. Essentially people judging. The only person to see them was the person I was romantic with. Friends have seen the very bottoms of them. Now I share them with the world.
I’ve felt fear, shame, guilt, anger, disgust and many more emotions. So why now? Why here? Just why?
Because its time I accept my past, present and future. Hiding hasn’t worked. I’d love to rid myself of this scars, lessen them at the least accept them. Which brings me to my review.
The product being bio oil.
You may of heard of it or may have not. Some say it doesn’t work others swear by this miracle oil. Made to reduce the appearance of stretch marks and scars.
My goal to rub this in to my scared body 3 times a day until the bottle runs out. To blog with updates on what it’s like to use, how it feels, if it works.
I feel the best judge will be photos. At the beginning which are in this post and until the end.
So here’s to fighting the fear of others judgements.
I officially begin the review 🙂
