  • Re-Gen Oil Review: Same Same But Different

    6.20.2013

    meet my friend re-gen oil

    You probably guess I was high when I did the photography shooting for this product review. I was making a batch of homemade bath salts and couldn't resist the beautiful light pink color of Re-Gen Oil which matches my beautiful bath salts. DIYs are a cheaper alternative to having to purchase products outside which costs a bomb. I used Re-Gen Oil, Himalayan Rock Salt and Lemon Grass Essential Oils to whipped up a batch of deliciously spa foot treat.

    Just an example of how you could be creative with your products at home other than using it directly as it is. The homemade bath salt not only smells heavenly of lemon grass but also moisturizes my dry chapped legs while the soothing Himalayan salts eases the tension away.

    DIY Homemade Foot Bath Salts

    During the winter, oils come in handy to moisturized and protect our outer skin layer from dehydration and dryness. However in Malaysia, there is no such thing as winter hence many of us neglect the importance of "oiling" ourselves until it's too late (like when we notice how dry and burnt our skin looks). Being lazy as I am, I try to make use of the "me time" I have to mix and match things up in my kitchen. Creating a combination of products that would give me more than one benefit in a nick of a time. Here's my DIY recipe if anyone wants it:

    DIY Homemade Foot Spa Ingredients:
    Himalayan Bath Salts or Epsom Salts
    Your Fave Essential. Oil (not burning fragrance oils. Oils (Olive Oil, Almond Oil, Coconut Oil or Re-Gen Oil.

    There is no right or wrong to the measurements. I just do it like Jamie Oliver style. A pinch of that a dash of this, walah. Of course you just need a few drops of Essential Oils for aromatherapy while the good oils for moisturizing can be a 1/3 cup or less depending on how you want the texture to be. The mix them all up and throw a handful into your bath tub or foot bucket.

    P.S: Re-Gen Oil has 4 types of natural botanicals @ essential oils - Lavender, Rosemary, Chamomile and Calendula and 4 types of carrier oil in it's formula. You can skip adding essential oils, I just wanted the scent of lemon grass.

    Rich in Vit A (regeneration) & Vit E (anti-aging)

     light red-pink color with a oily but non-greasy texture

    There is another product similar to this that I have reviewed before called Bio-Oil. Both products are very identical in terms of packaging, ingredients and it's use. However if you peek into the ingredients list, Re-Gen Oil has less ingredients used than Bio-Oil. Whether that is good or bad comparison factor remains questionable. There is one thing for certain that makes you reach out for Re-Gen Oil, the price factor. Since both products gives the common benefits of moisturizing, improve skin condition (scars, blemishes) and prevents stretch marks, ultimately it's a customers choice in terms of affordability and ingredient research. Re-gen oil is slightly less fragrant than Bio-Oil, which is a good news to those who don't favor oil scents but needs to use them. Say I was from Thailand I will say "Same Same but Different".

    essential oils, carrier oils, vitamins in one bottle

    contains active ingredient PCL liquid inside!
    (
    to promote skin regeneration)

    Readers if you're looking for a cheaper alternative to improving skin appearances (scars/blemishes/pigmentations), to condition your skin or to prevent stretch marks you can consider buying the Re-Gen Oil at any Watson pharmacies near you.

    What I like:
    Cheaper alternative to the existing anti-stretch mark and improving skin conditions on scars. Makes it an affordable good oil to do homemade beauty products to moisturize skin. The texture of the oil is oily but does not leave a long greasy effect on your skin. The absorption rate is fast thanks to the carier oils and I like to say, a little goes a long way. I use this oil to massage my legs and arms in hopes to improve my sun barbecue looking skin.

    What I don't like:
    Look too identical to the existing product in the market. Maybe they can come up with another design to stand out from the crowd? Also maybe Re-Gen Oil can consider upping up the fragrance department a bit for aromatherapy suckers like me. Perhaps maybe adding some botanicals like Lavender bits inside too?

        Yes cough cough more affordable. At least now won't look at scar oils too long in pharmacy to decide if wanan buy.

    2. Hi Tammy, as always..an excellent review... I soo need to get this Re-Gen Oil... have massive stretch marks after popping out 3 munchkins and have tried a few brands but nothing has really worked. Will give this a try and see if it can erase or at least lighten those marks!!!

      1. Hey Sharon, thanks so much for your compliments. Hmmm! stretch marks is a *biatch* I say. It's going to take more than oils :( to lighten it e.g massages yay. Incorporating massages using Clarin's signature movements (up down rub not circular) on the targeted area might help to improve skin regeneration and release some bad stretch marks from it's grasp.

    5. Hey Tammy,

      Just wondering where did you buy the bath salts from? Would love to try making some of my own too! Looking forward to meeting you at the Spa Party! -Dina

      1. Yo Dina :)

        I get my bath salts from supermarkets (go for Himalayan Rock Salts they are pinky) or Epsom Salts (hard to find in markets). Shops like Country Home Organics sell them cheaper too but I will need to hunt down the shop. There is one at TTDI pasar besar, a small shop. Members gets discounts too.

        Organic shops sells bath salts as well. Though u can use normal rock salts, Himalayan or Epsom is much better in terms of mineral benefits.

        They make great party favors or gifts too when you whip up a batch, put in some dry lavender or rose bits.

    16. Heyya Tammy!
      I must say you have added creative queen ante up to the max in your resume!
      Super love the peachy- sand background (I'm guessing it's the Himalayan bath salt) with decorative seashells to compliment Re- Gen oil. Your DIY foot spa treatment gives me another great recipe to be added to my beauty regime. All those strutting and no pampering made my feet looked like expired Choki Choki.
      Just kidding! Having extremely sensitive skin, I find it hard to find a good product without too much fragrance to get rid of my scars and post-acne marks. With Calendula in Re-Gen oil, I guess I could try it with no worries, kudos to your fab plus awesome as always review! Hoping I'd be among the lucky earthlings to try the Re- Gen oil experience like you did, Tammy! XDD

      1. Yes the pink sand = Himalayan rock salts + salt. Oh no keloids would be difficult to get rid off. It's permanent scar tissue, and depending on the size might take more than just oil.

      Anyhow, I have used Bio-Oil before but I wasn't one of those who would be lucky enough to experience the power of the oil. My bad ass scars never even budge a slight bit. =(

      Heard of Re-Gen oil recently but I'm sceptical given my past experience with similar products. How would you say Re-Gen oil fair? Hopefully, Re-Gen oil could do me good.

    43. Hi Tammy, Nice review and love your pictures!
      I've tried Bio Oil before when I was in my teen years and it does helps to lighten the black spots/ scars on my leg.
      I wonder Re-Gen Oil does the same?
      Should give it a try since it costs slightly cheaper than Bio Oil. Hehe...
