At a glance:

The Omega Oil by Botanico Vida is 100 percent natural and beautifully absorbent which improves your skin. It can also be your go-to for any dry or damaged skin, stretch marks, scars, pregnancy bellies, and baby massages. 

How did this product make your life easier?

Tiffany: This is a lovely product and so quick to use every day. You can just squirt it on and rub it in in seconds. It absorbs really well and smells wonderful. It comes in a nice bottle with a box so really easy to keep on you if you’re travelling or need a quick top-up. It can be used for so many different ailments and great to know that I can use it on my children.

Emily: I have used this as a mum to be with a growing bump to try and reduce stretch marks. The oil is easy to dispense and apply which is good when you don’t have much time to get ready with two toddlers running about! I have also used my two children on particularly dry areas of skin and Shaun was quick and easy to apply.

Jade: I have been using this product for a fair few weeks now and it has started to make my stretch marks look smoother and skin seem firmer, giving me more confidence in myself which therefore benefits me as a mum. I feel more comfortable in my own skin and it is also easy to use which is useful when looking after a newborn and toddler.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Nicole: I would be happy to recommend this product to a fellow mum as it smells beautiful, with strong orange oil notes. It also has mostly natural/organic ingredients, with a really comprehensive blend of oils, so I would be confident in the quality of the ingredients. It would make a lovely gift in pregnancy.

Naomi: I’d recommend this product as it’s natural, suitable for babies and adults, and has multiple uses! This is the only oil skin product I’ve ever used that actually absorbs into my skin properly and doesn’t leave it greasy, it’s just amazing I love it! The pump top is just an added bonus and a little goes a long way!

Sophie: The oil smells and feels really nice on my skin. I also have seen an improvement in my dry skin. A little also goes a long way so I would say it was value for money. I received the product a bit later so I haven’t seen a difference for my c section scar but did feel nice on the skin. Also very easy and clean to use. 

Would you choose this product to win?

Rebecca: I would choose this product above some others to use. This is because of it's easy to apply action and smells lovely. It can be used for a wide of things, such as dry skin, irritated skin, stretch marks, scars, and even aging skin. It can also be applied to babies and children dry skin, or even for baby massage.

Catherine: Yes I would choose this above all others on the market. It is a similar price to other oils I have used before but I feel this product is superior. The oil dries very nicely and my skin feels lovely after using it. There is no greasy residue on my hands after using it, unlike some other oils. I don’t know how good it is for scars or stretch marks but it feels like a nice luxurious oil to treat yourself with.

Sophie: So when comparing it to over oils I would put it down the more luxurious ones. In the past, I have used Bio-oil and baby oil and this one performs better and definitely smells a lot nicer. I think because of this I would pay the slightly higher price it is asking. It is also great that you can use it on many different skin conditions. 

What changes would you make to this product?

Naomi: This product is pretty much perfect, the only thing I’d say needs to be improved is the pump as I’ve found that the whole pump ends up oily after using it due to leaking around the edges if this didn’t leak the product would be completely perfect! Either way, this wouldn’t put me off buying it and I will be buying it again!

Tiffany: If I was being picky, I would maybe change the applicator on the bottle. It’s not a spray so can be a bit clumsy and difficult to squirt accurately, especially when you first use it. Maybe it could have a look on the cap too in case you lost the lid and could be confident it wouldn’t leak if you had to carry it in your bag.

Jade: If I could change one thing about the product it would be the packaging, as there is genuinely nothing that needs changing about the oil itself as it is a fantastic product. I would make it a little more attractive as it is very plain and add a little bit of character to it, possibly offering smaller versions too, to be carried around in handbags!
