TruBeautyGems- Review of basq's Resilient Body Oil

Brooke Ditlow - Wednesday, July 18, 2012
I recently discovered the company Basq when I was researching healthy skin care lines. I was sent the Basq Resilient Body Oil to try, which is a product that helps with stretch marks.

Basq was designed to appeal to women and men in all life stages. From pregnancy to weight loss, sensitive skin to mature skin and all the combinations in between. They have a series of stretch mark products that work from prevention to repair. Stretch marks can be caused by pregnancy, weight loss, growth spurts, and even strength training. They also have products that help with balancing hormones, like their Rebalancing Face Cleanser. For rest and relaxation, they have products with wonderful aromas and textures. Every product is tested rigorously for allergy and sensitivity, and they are all paraben, phthalate, and animal testing free.

They also have a huge celebrity following! Some of the beauties who love their products include Heidi Klum, Christy Turlington, Marcia Cross, Sheryl Crow, Diana Krall, Jennifer Lopez, Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Brooke Shields, and Linda Evangelista. Maybe it's not that big of a deal that these women love the products, but celebrities could afford a $500 bottle of stretch mark elixir with real gold and diamond flecks in it, so if THIS is good enough for them, it's good enough for me too.

Basq Resilient Body Oil
$38 for 4.3 fl. oz.

Active Ingredients: Rosehip Oil, Grapeseed oil, Hazelnut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Sunflower Oil, Sesame Oil

I don't have a lot of stretch marks. I have a couple on each side of my stomach that I've had since 8th grade when I had a HUGE growth spurt- I've been 5'11" since middle school FYI. The ones I do have are a white-ish silver and I never think about them because they're practically invisible. Even so, I'm going through a huge weight gain being pregnant and it's important to keep my skin moisturized so as it stretches and pulls it doesn't lack in moisture or elasticity and it stays in good shape.

When you screw off the lid to this, there is no control top lid, it's just open. I like to pour a little bit in my hand and apply to my stomach, arms, thighs and anywhere else I feel like could use a little TLC. I like that it doesn't sit on my skin, it sinks right in and does its job. It has a light scent that goes away as soon as it's applied. The bottle is glass which could be good or bad. Do you drop things often? It would not be fun to break a bottle of body oil on the floor. But if that's not a concern to you it's truly a great product!

I can't wait to see what Jessica has tried from the company!
