Bio-Oil has quite a cult following, and it should come as no surprise— it works in so many ways for so many people. For some, it’s the product to turn to for soothing skin that has been burned by the sun, or the must-have for smoothing away stretch marks. For others, it is a moisturizing night serum for the face or a “drink” for their parched hair. In addition to those many uses, we recommend using it to give your legs a silky sheen for a night out— in your favorite dress, of course— or try adding a few drops to your bath for a relaxing, at-home treat. from $11.99, drugstore.com
