When I fell pregnant with my daughter, one of my concerns was stretch marks. Even though I was a fashion editor at the time, I was still doing a lot of modeling work, and most of my jobs were swimwear or underwear campaigns.

My editor at the time suggested I start using the Justine Tissue Oil as soon as possible on every inch of my body to avoid stretch marks, which I duly did.

Every evening after my bath, for the duration of my pregnancy, I applied the tissue oil. And guess what? I didn’t get even one stretch mark! I’ve been a fan ever since, and every time I use this tissue oil, the subtle, comforting scent reminds me of my pregnancy.

The Justine Tissue oil was developed in 1977 with South African skin in mind. It was the first of its kind and was the result of rigorous testing. It’s a great example of a product that expertly blends science & nature. The formula contains a blend of naturally derived oils, vitamins and essential fatty acids that help improve the overall appearance of scars, stretch marks and sun damage in just two weeks (this claim is substantiated with consumer trials), while helping the skin look & feel younger and more radiant in just a week. The ingredients include Sweet Almond, Corn Germ, What Germ, Vitamin E and Castor Oils as well as Micro Algae.

The Justine Tissue Oil (R199 for a 200ml bottle) BUY can be used on both face and body. It dramatically improves skin hydration for up to 24 hours after just one application. It’s not at all oily and sinks into the skin really quickly.

I use mine in a multitude of ways:

  1. I have really dry cuticles, so massage a little of the Tissue oil onto them just before bed.
  2. I add a few drops to my bath to soften my skin.
  3. For a super nourishing treat, I add a few drops to my body lotion.
  4. I’ve used it many times on my scalp as a treatment (try this of you have a dry, itchy scalp!). Simply add a few drops to the scalp, wrap in a towel for 10 minutes, then wash out with a mild shampoo, ensuring the water is lukewarm.
  5. I apply it all over my body to keep my skin soft, smooth and nourished. I also find the formula is great at soothing my legs after shaving.

There are also a few other amazing products available in the Tissue Oil range that I’ve been trying.

Tissue Oil Lip Therapy R65 (BUY) is luxuriously moisturising lip balm formulated with a unique blend of waxes and natural oils to help moisturise and nourish dry, chapped lips.

Tissue Oil Moisturising Body Scrub R135 (BUY) contains a blend of nourishing Tissue Oil and exfoliating ingredients to help moisturise skin while removing dead skin cells, leaving skin feeling soft and looking radiant and renewed.

Tissue Oil Nourishing Body Lotion R99 (BUY) is lightly fragranced and formulated with a nourishing blend of vitamin E and sweet almond oil, to help moisturise, soothe and soften skin for up to 24 hours. This formula is easily absorbed and ideal for very dry skin.

Tissue Oil Cleansing Bar R55 (BUY) is an oil-enriched cleansing bar that gently cleanses skin without drying it out.

Tissue Oil Skin Repair Face Cream SPF 20 for All Skin Types R169 (BUY) is a nourishing, repairing face cream that’s easily absorbed. It moisturises skin for up to 24 hours after a single application. Its effective formula helps to promote even skin tone and reduce redness and leaves the skin feeling nourished, soft and soothed, while the SPF20 sunscreen helps protect the skin against sun damage and premature ageing. It’s also suitable for sensitive skin.

I’d absolutely love to win this hamper because I’ve been struggling with stretch marks on my tummy, bum, and breasts and pigmentation on my neck after the birth of my second son. I’ve lost confidence in myself as I’m always conscious about it. I’ve tried many products including home remedies but it all went in vain. Your review says it all. I’d love to try this range.

I just love the smell of Justine and just what I need to re-energized my body and soul!

I have a dry scalp I would love to find a solution for my problem. Its embarrasing to walk around like this

I have chronic acne. As a result have pitted skin. So tired of trying facial products. As I’ve invested in products that don’t work for the past 25 years. Winning this hamper will be a great treatment for me. Fingers crossed 🤞

First.. I’d like to thank you for this blog I truly enjoyed reading it especially mentioning about your pregnancy, because ba dum ba dum ba dum I am expecting my first little one too 🙂 and this mama is super excited for her little bundle of joy, but as we all know pregnancy can take it’s toll on our bodies such as stretch marks. Although I’ve tried a couple of products to diminish the stretch marks on my body. Nothing seems to help and I’m feeling hopeless already, until I’ve read your blog that gives me new found hope. So that is why I would be super happy, super over the moon and forever grateful if I can win this amazing giveaway. I’ve heard only wonderful things about Justine, never tried it before so once again hoping to be the winner of this amazing giveaway. I am so sure that this is the answer to my stretch marks problems as well as my dry winter skin.

i love this….winter is really hard on my skin, from head to toe. Am sitting here at work with a tub of baby Vaseline, that’s how bad things are,need a break from this dry skin…….lol

My skin is so dry, this would be an amazing giveaway to win!

This is the only product I use. I would like to win this for Jerusha Raath as she is expecting my first grandchild in December ❤️

I’d love to win this as I’ve never managed to get rid or even lighten my awful stretch marks( more like zebra stripes) after carrying 2 kids, the first being 15 years ago and the last 11 years ago. Oddly enough I haven’t tried Justine tissue oil as I think I went through too many different products and hardly any difference so I eventually just threw in the towel. I have super dry skin as well so it would be an amazing treat for my dehydrated skin. I’ve been hearing amazing things about Justine so I’m hopeful that this could possibly lighten stretch marks , lighten acne scars as well as give my skin the nourishment it so yearns for, helping me restore some of the confidence that I so proudly had when I trotted around in my younger years.

This is the only product I use . I would like to win this for Jerusha Raath as she is expecting my first grandchild in December

MY lips have been so dry this winter, I need only the lip therapy the rest will be a bonus. I have used it before and it was very nice.

I would love to win this Justine tissue oil hamper it would do wonders to my skin , am tired of hiding my imperfection skin away under long sleeve clothing. Being unemployed it’s very difficult to maintain all the things a girl need . It’s almost summer and I would love to have clear ,smooth , silky skin .

My Dry winter skin needs some Justine Tissue Oil

Hi i would love to win this hamper as i suffer from stretch marks and pigmentation due to pregnancy and weight loss im working on my body again i just join a local weightloss program to shed some weight and this hamper will do justice to me into thi transformation journey…i really enjoy your blog and thank you for the owesome giveaway.

Would love the win this amazing hamper as I am pregnant with my first baby boy.
Growing this big tummy is a concern with regards to stretch marks. I believe treatment is better than cure. So I could really do with the Justine tissue oil range ❤️🤞🏼

I am a first time expecting mom and I am all excited and scared at the same time.. Fears about my body changing running through my mind but caryying my little bundle of evvvrrything with pride, joy and confidence.

As a first time mom, I barely know anything I can do or use to help me relieve anything I might be going through. It’s post like this setting light to me on which direction I should take. The confusion you’re faced with as a first time mom when everyone is telling you, no buy this, don’t buy that, you end up not buying anything lol.

I feel this gift is for me because it is going to help me reduce the stretch marks I got through this pregnancy and weighing out the stress of having to go choose the right brand by myself because I’m clueless. I hope one day, I’ll be the one blogging about my pregnancy journey and how this has helped me. Thank you

I love Justine Tissue Oil already but I would love to try the other products especially the Body scrub!

I would love to win this as I have very dry skin. The tissue oil will help to remove the dryness and make my skin feel smooth and soft.

I’ve recently started shedding weight that I’ve put on over the past 4 years after being on medication that had weight gain as a side effect. I am gradually losing the weight and gaining my confidence back yet I still find it difficult dealing with stretch marks all over my body. I would love to win this hamper to help me through this weight loss journey and to gain back my confidence.

I would love this fabulous Justine hamper because my skin needs hydration after a very dry Highveld winter!

I have very dry skin and it even gets patchy so this would be amazing to reduce the dry patches.

For my dry skin and mostly for the Mark’s on skin. And I really want to try the face cream. I have dark spots on my face and dry patches and this sounds wonderful.

My skin is ageing and its dry and needs lots of care and protection this hamper is absolutely wonderful after reading the amazing review this is exactly what I need to moisturize, nourish, soften my skin and make me feel proud and confident in my skin. Thank you.

I would love to try out the Justine range. I recently fell and have this huge scar along the entire left leg coupled with bruising. I’ve trying other tissue oils which hasn’t seemed to work. Crossing fingers to give range a go. The face creams sounds amazing as I have a lot of sun spots and blemishes from acne which won’t go away with the usual face cream.. Hope that trying the Justine face cream with tissue oil will get rid of these marks and blemishes.

My super dry skin definitely needs some TLC after this winter, a friend of mine use Justine tissue oil and i absolutely love the scent of it too, so it will benifit me both ways and even for my son, i think i would introduce the product to my entire family….. 😍

I’ve used the Justine oild for ages and it’s so great. Would love to win this hamper to try the rest of the product range!

I would love to win this amazing giveaway, my skin really needs some TLC. Winter has not been kind to my skin this year.

I would love this its sounds good and so many uses earlier this year I had a few rounds of chemo and even though everything is fine now my skin looks like its aged 10years this year. I would love to try this

I would love to try all these products together. I have used in the past and still do but perhaps need to use a whole lot together for it to really work

I would love to try these products because I have sun damage from being outside all the time

I would love to win this awesome hamper as I have very dry skin. This will help to remove the dryness and make my skin feel smooth and soft again.

I would love to win this prize as i am not able to afford(spend money on) pamper products as i used to. This would be a lovely treat and i can get my skin in shape for summer.
Thank you.

Winter skin needs fixing 🙂 and would love to try this to help my cuticles too!

I have very fair, sensitive, dry, sun damaged skin. It is only recently with ageing, I’m now 45, that my skin needs much more attention and hydration and exfoliation than I realised! Recently I was telling a friend that my body and face lotions don’t seem to be absorbed into my skin, sitting on the surface and doing nothing! I’m keen to try these products for absorption qualities and sun damage repair. From what I’ve read on this blog post, it sounds hyrdating and very impressive that you did not get even one stretch mark!

My skin is so dry so this would be a treat

I’ve been using Justine tissue oil religiously since the day I took a pregnancy test! With three and bit months left to go, I’d make really good use of this prize. x

I’m already using Justine tissue oil on my parched skin and would love to compliment it with the other awesome products on offer

I’d like to win because I love taking care of my health and skin

Would love to win. As a breast cancer survivor, I’m healthy, but was left with some pigmentation marks in my face and do have some stretch marks as well. Nothing seems to have worked so far, but I believe, this awesome prize will do it for me. I currently cannot afford all of it. ❤😊👌

Though I love the fact that spring is on our doorstep, I’ve learnt that my skin tends to be dry and itchy during the change of seasons. I’d love to try Justine Tissue oil as a remedy!

I have heard before that Justine tissue oil is amazing. Would love to pamper my skin with these products.
