I bought a small pack after reading all the great reviews.
I have quite a few acne marks on my face, and am forever looking for a product to get rid of them, and it always take me a super long time to heal anything.
Bio oil didn't really help for me. I've been using it for 2 weeks, even on some very fresh marks it didn't do anything.
One pro that I have to point out is that this is very easy to spread and I feel it is absorbed easily and it's not greasy feeling. But most importantly it does not clog pores. Just really not sure if it works.
So far out of all the products I've tried, Vitamin E works the best for acne marks. And I mean directly from the supplement capsules.
My experience with bio oil is a really really positive one!
I'm in LOVE with this product.
I've always had red cheeks and it has annoyed me not even some foundations could even my skin tone... my red cheeks would still show through!!
So I bought bio oil hoping for some good results and have used it religiously morning and night (after cleansing) for about 2 weeks.
My skin is all one tone now, I'm not even kidding! I really should've taken pictures because it's amazing the results!
I've had people commenting on my skin saying it looks great!
My face is also as smooth as a babys butt! :)
I like that it sinks in pretty fast! If you use to much your face does look oily but I only use enough to cover my face once.
Love this stuff!! :)
This is a pretty good oil to moisturize dry patches, but it doesn't do what they advertise it for -- get rid of stretch marks and scars. I don't think it did ANYTHING for those. Still, it's okay, but only okay as a moisturizer. The smell is pretty bad, though, so I doubt I'd buy it again. I'd just as soon use baby oil. At least baby oil smells nice.
This is the best product for my body! No irritation and I find it helps to heal blemishes. I also use this with the Body Shop cellulite massager on my upper legs and hips and find it really smoothes things out and reduces the appearance of cellulite. The texture is great because it isn't too greasy but allows the massager to slide really well when strong pressure is given.
Worked well with helping my eczema. My flareup is all but gone now a week after using it on my body. However I did try this on my face and after the third day of use I woke up with 4 huge pimples on my chin and one of my cheek. The first ingredient is Paraffinum Liquidum which is just another word for mineral oil. I wish I had done some research before slapping this on my face since I know mineral oil happens to flare my acne. Live and learn I guess. So for me this works for the body however my face forget it! I still give it 4 lippies for helping to sooth my eczema flareup on my body though.
I gave this product mainly a 4 out of 5 because it did help fade my acne scars, however it did not work for stretch marks. I saw really no difference in the few stretch marks I tested this out on. But if your looking for something to fade acne scars, this stuff is good. Also, the smell is not that bad, and it doesn't absorb very quick if at all. It can kind of leave a greasy feel to your skin but not overly greasy. Overall, I would recommend it for fading scars not stretchmarks like other reviewers have mentioned as well.
This didn't help my stretch marks and dosnt absorb well. Also has a odd smell.
A basic pros and cons list:
makes your skin feel soft and healthy
helps to fade acne scaring like no other product I've tried
isn't as expensive as some of the products out there
easily available at drugstores (picked mine up at Walgreens)
can feel greasy
the smell. yuck
still not the cheapest product in the world
didn't fade stretch marks
overall: the product is not what I expected at all (which was a healer for stretch marks). I still recommend it if you have acne scaring though, it works like a charm. apply it to a clean face before bed and they will fade.
I can't even begin to say how amazing this product is
After an accident that left the skin on my face scraped off from my chin to my left ear, I was in a panic to find something that would prevent scarring. Remembering hearing about how awesome Bio-Oil was from a customer at work, I decided to give it a shot. I applied the Bio-Oil several times a day for probably 2 weeks and I was left with no scars. It did cause a bit of itchiness, but that more than likely could be attributed to the scabs I had. I am not so sure how effective this product is on getting rid of existing scars, but in terms of scar prevention it is the best!
I've been using this on my face as a night time moisturizer for about a month. I am LOVING the results. My skin is a lot more even tone and my acne scars are improving. It has not caused me to break out which is even better. I was very skeptical at first because of it being an oil. Wow, was I wrong. This is a miracle in a bottle and it's pretty cheap. Give it a try! :)
Edit: I stopped using this after awhile because I wasn't seeing anymore improvement in my skin.
