Most restocked!

I've been using this since my teenage years. Its reduced the appearance of my stretch marks over the years. This product is effective and I think, affordable, because it lasts long. I used this during my pregnancy, on my belly and its almost 2 years of use, I can see my belly stretch marks are lighter! The longer you use it, the better the results. I always add a few drops to my body lotion (something Bio-oil should think about creating too) and its reduced the appearance of scars as well.

Janine Harry says BYE-BYE to stretch marks

Stressful situations lead to bad eating habits or maybe comfort eating... well, that was what occurred in my case :( My rapid weight-gain over the year 2016 left me with horrible-looking stretch marks on my already huge 'love-handles'. They did not look like 'normal' stretch marks (whatever normal looks like lol) they looked like finger prints, red finger prints, ugly red finger prints, ugly red finger prints that I hated and yes, I wanted them to disappear. Anyway, I've always heard about people raving about Bio-Oil. A few years ago, it was the 'IT' thing; something you needed to have an something you aspired to have and indeed, when I was very young, I am glad my mom offered to buy me a bottle. Hence, it has been something that I have using 'on and off' during my teen years, but because those 'finger -prints' weren't that bad back then, Bio-Oil was not part of my daily-skin regime. Fast-forwarding to 2016, when I developed the 'finger prints'- in the year 2017,, I whipped out my 125 ml bottle that I bought about 2 years back and applying it religiously, twice a day; every morning and every night- I DO SEE RESULTS AND THAT IT WHAT REALLY GETS ME EXCITED ABOUT B.O! My red 'finger-prints' are now lightly-brown in colour and being an olive-toned woman that means it's working wonders. I know that soon the product will work, but as so many reviewers said, It is not something that happens overnight; you have to be consistent, you have to get excited about taking care of your body... I love bath AND shower times as it entails a wonderful regime of lotions, oils and face wash. This is my body - it's not perfect; it's lumpy and bumpy, but I love going to lengths to make it look good and smell good! So I would definitely recommend this product to everyone - IT'S WORTH IT

Improve the appearance of scars - old and new

I have been using Bio-Oil for many years to improve the appearance of stretch marks and many an old scar. However the other day when I was playing with my puppy I was left with quite a long and nasty scratch on my leg. As it was healing I realised how dry the area was and that it was going to leave a scar. I started using Bio-Oil as soon as it was safe to do so (no more open wound) and I immediately saw an improvement in my skin’s condition where I had applied Bio-Oil. The mark has greatly diminished and soon it will be completely gone. Bio-Oil not only improves the condition of the skin leaving it more hydrated and supple it also has a lovely fragrance. A couple of drops added to a warm bath after a long day relaxes mind and body.

Bio Oil On Fire


I remember many times when bio oil was like a song in my ears as most women would advise about its benefits....I could not afford it then and I then I made a plan to add it to my regime > I needed to set myself free from the prison of scars!

I set the journey on fire with my enthusiasm and then that first bottle (sparingly as I used it), ran out. My stretch marks did not disappear like I was hyped to believe but the surely were lighter and my skin softer. I then believed to continue with the product by buying my second bottle and then the third and so on and so on that now I lost count....this believe was created by my thinking that my first bottle was not used by me long enough to allow it to be effective. Then from the second bottle when I did not see the results I wanted, I then believed it was because my scars being old.
Somehow I really really wanted to see what others have seen - that miracle!

I am grateful that my stretch marks are better looking and my skin is lighter as well as softer. I am still faithfully using it because maybe I will finally see what I want to as years go by and I do hope it will stop the stretch marks I already have right there!

I found out that I am one of many ...one of those who is still waiting faithfully.
Our expectations should be realistic, this is the truth I have had to learn.
For the amount of money paid for this "rescue" mission, I am not very much happy after its all applied and done. I feel it could be a inexpensive especially seeing that many products on the market that produce the same results, are available as options.

The stretch mark journey thus continues :)

Stretch Marks be Gone

Having just given birth to the worlds most amazing little boy, I have been left with a beautiful "road map to motherhood" all over my tummy and hips. They look like angry hot red lines removing all sexiness I may have once had. My sister in law suggested Bio Oil- which in 3 weeks has reduced my red scars to s slighly pink tinge instead. Would recommend Bio oil to everyone in need

Bio Oil

My stretch marks are actually a thing of the past because of Bio-oil ,it is jus that good and I can't write much about it as much has already been written except to say that I'm never short of this product. During the day I use it on my skin after a shower before I dry my body so it is easily absorbed and at night I apply to dry skin. If I have to pin point one product that has made the most impact on my skin it would be bio oil. :)

Bio Oil

I bought a 200ml bottle for an old scar on my thigh. The bottle is almost gone and I haven't noticed any change in the appearance of the scar. I will buy another bottle and keep applying throughout the winter season to see if there will be any change. However, I started applying Bio Oil on a new scar and that mark has disappeared. I also used the oil as a moisturiser every evening on my face and that has worked out great. I noticed that the marks I had on my face have disappeared. I will definitely continue using it as a moisturiser every night during the winter season. I have come to the conclusion that Bio Oil works faster on fresh scars & marks whilst older scars and stretch marks require prolonged use for a more noticeable improvement in their appearance. The 200ml bottle goes a long way.

Holy Grail

Bio Oil is a product I cannot live without! I had very bad eczema scars on my legs, so bad that even during summer I would not wear my favourite dresses and skirts. Bio Oil improved the look of my scars within weeks. I used it twice a day and now I also just add it into my bath water for a little extra moisture.

Bio Oil

I used Bio Oil from the day i found out that i was pregnant, i used no other product but Bio Oil in the hope to not get the dreaded stretch marks after pregnancy. My son is now turning 8 and i did not get a single noticeable stretch mark, i like to believe that Bio Oil played a big part in this.

I've started using Bio Oil to lighten some scars from a previous operation. It smells nice...a bit oily when you first put it on, But makes my skin feel soft. It's easily absorbed and a little oil goes a long way.

Not impressed

My mom is a huge fan of bio oil. This woman has bio oil coming out her ears! So when I stressed my lack of confidence due to stretch marks and scars (being allergic to mosquitoes and getting Chicken Pox at the age of 14 hasn't helped!) She was determined in having me try her go-to product. After 2 months, I gave up! I saw no improvement of what is said to be the most wonderful product for stretch marks and scars! Also, I felt that if you missed one application, your skin felt dreadfully dry the entire day that if you scratched it against something, gently, it left that visible white mark as indication of dry skin that looked like it hadn't been hydrated in years.

BIO-OIL FOR EVERYONE!!!

I started to use Bio-Oil on a burn scar after I have seen the ad in a magazine. It really helped me heal faster and the scar disappeared quicker than other scars. One does need to be consistent with its use though and not forget to use it daily.

I have since started to use this product on my extremely dry skin. I have battled to find a product that keeps my skin moisturised all day long. All I can say is WOW! What an improvement in my skin condition, appearance and even elasticity! This is the only product so far that keeps my skin soft and looking radiant throughout the day! The improvement is remarkable and I will recommend it to anyone!

PROS: Works on anyone from babies to adult burn marks! It is so cost-effective. One only uses a few drops at a time. I love the soft smell (not overpowering at all). It really makes a difference to one’s skin if you stick with it.

CON: You need to use it regularly and not skip days (as with any skin care product). Be careful when you use it to not spill on your clothes and one needs to wipe the outside of the bottle from time to time as it tends to get a bit oily. (A small price to pay for this remarkable product).

Bio oil

Bio oil is a personal favorite of mine and I often use it to supplement my daily body lotion and moisturizer. It manages to make skin look and feel supple with the added bonus of a great fragrance. The 200 ml bottle lasts a couple of months so it is cost effective. My only problem is that it takes time for scars and stretch marks to disappear. It's a bit frustrating because one often gets tempted to think that the product doesn't work. Otherwise, with a little bit of patience spanning over a couple of months, scars and stretch marks will gradually fade.

best moisturizer

Bio Oil is one of those products I have a love hate relationship with. I have a few scars from when I was little and someone recommended I try bio-oil. I found that it worked slightly if you used it over time. Maybe like for a year straight. It is also not a miracle product. I used it consistently for a year and my scars did not go away. It just looked a bit better. If you are not going to use it all the time, you will not see results.
I like putting a little bio oil in my bath water when my skin feels incredibly dry. It is the best moisturizer I could ask for. It also smells nice so you don't have to worry about your skin smelling like chemicals or anything odd.

I love bio oil, I use it as my daily moisturiser when my skin needs some TLC, and in winter when I can notice my skin is really dry and flakey, I add two teaspoons of bio oil to my bubble bath to give my skin a lovely nourishing feeling. It also leaves my skin with a really lovely scent.

minimising the appearance of scars

This is a rather inexpensive product that has won many awards and does a great job of minimising the appearance of scars when used. Is fine for any part of the body and is quickly absorbed into the skin. I like that it does not leave behind much residue and that it has a nice light fragrance that masks the oily smell.

i love the light texture

to be honest i do not use Bio oil for the scar lightening benefit... purely because i believe that prevention is better than cure. Bio oil is an item i will always have in my cupboard, and is part of my pamper regime. i use an epilator to remove leg hairs, and after removal and a quick cool rinse i apply a very thin layer of Bio Oil (yes i epilate at night). i have tried other brands, but i love the light texture and pleasant smell of Bio Oil the best.

my favorite use however is after a night out where i have had to use 'going out' makeup, i cleanse and exfoliate and use approximately 1 drop warmed by rubbing hands together and patting on face, calms the skin down beautifully AND my skin in the morning has no tell tale signs of the night before.

Bio-Oil

Bio-Oil, to me, is not the greatest of the tissue oils as it is not very effective but it is one of the better ones.

Was this review helpful to you? 

October i wrote my last review on bio oil and had not seen any effects. today i stand to be corrected my bottle emptied and thought i would give it one last chance and by another smaller one so that i would not waist so much money again. it was not a waist, finally the stretch marks just above my ankle started to fade. they look a lot better now and i am no longer afraid to get back into my shorts. for those of you who are trying it out for a first time. my skin was in a really bad state, when i bought my second tub of bio oil my friend suggested that i use sugar and honey scrub on my legs to remove the dead skin, and also add bio oil to my bath water. i have been doing the scrub and bio oil bath once a week and i think that is the reason for the new found results. so stick too it and try get to using it earlier.

I use it as a moisturiser on my face

I really like Bio Oil. I use it as a moisturiser on my face, and during winter on elbows, knees and any other dry skin. You can even put a drop or two in your bath for super body moisturising, and it smells divine.
It's pricey, but a little goes a long, long way.
The best thing I've ever used on my face - and that's really saying something!

Without Bio Oil my daily routine is incomplete. It totally makes my skin feel moisturised.
I haven't noticed any of my old scars becoming less noticeable and it hasn't worked on my stretch marks...so I mostly use it for moisture.

This is probably the best thing ever when it comes to skin! It works wonders on scars (I would know - I have a few from surgeries) and while its great at moisturization it also smells pleasant. This oil can be used as a treatment for scars, stretchmarks and discoloration. This is my little wonder product - great quality, yet afforable. I will never be without it
