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.
I just had to share about this little miracle I literally stumbled upon. I've tried a few different stuff for my acne scars and looks like I found something that actually works. I tried that caudalie vinoperfect serum. Used the entire bottle which cost be $80 and it smelled really nice, but I don't think it really did much. I tried the Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation and it went on really smooth, but again, I don't think it did too much. I then tried the Three Little Wonders trio by Ole Henriksen, because I read such rave reviews, which is basically the Truth Serum for day, a Night Gel, and the Sheer Transformation. I figured if I tried all three, it would work. So I tried it for a few weeks and it didn't really do much.
Then suddenly, literally out of nowhere, it felt like overnight, I started seeing results. I was so happy. I thought, finally I found the one that works. I vowed I would always, always be loyal to Ole Henriksen. But then the results stopped again. I couldn't figure it out.
Then I figured it out. I had used this stuff called Bio Oil, those nights when I saw results. I bought it at the drug store for like $11. The only reason I bought it is because it contains vitamin E so when I have to pop a pimple, I put it on right afterwards. Well I had been using it those nights and I kind of just spread it all over the nose and mouth area, not really thinking much of it. I never really thought of applying it over large areas before. And every morning I woke up to an amazingly radiant looking face. I just got it confused with the ole henriksen I was wearing over it.
So over the past few weeks, I've been experimenting with it. I've been trying it on and off for a few days at a clip with no other product when I have it on. I think I've pretty much confirmed it. This very plain vanilla, non glamorous $11 bottle of mineral oil (literally, that's all it is with cellulin and vitamin E) is somehow performing some miracle on my face. It looks SO good. Like radiant even. The acne scars have reduced significantly. The skintone looks sooo even. I feel like I barely need to use any powder or concealer. CRAZY!
Even if I AM out of my mind (which I'm not, I'm in love with products but just because I'm a shopaholic. Nothing ever REALLY works. It just either smells really nice or comes in pretty packaging or costs a lot of money so it makes you feel good), I figure - for $11, why the heck not - just try it!
Great as a moisturizer for my face--which has been dry lately. Leaves my skin soft.
This did nothing to reduce pigmentation spots and scars on me (visits to a Dermatologist eventually rid me of the marks) I do like using it as body moisturizer though and find using it after I wax my arms is a guarantee for soft supple skin without red spots that can occur after waxing.
I bought this hoping to make a big surgery scar on my shoulder disappear. It doesn't do the job well, but it doesn't do any harm, either. After reading the reviews here, it seems to work a lot better on stretch marks, not surgery scars.
This is really good. In my 3rd trimester I started getting REALLY bad stretch marks on my breasts and I bought it and applied it one night to PURPLE marks. The NEXT day they were red. Then pink... etc. I stopped using this because I just got too busy so I kept some marks. Maybe ill finish the bottle cuz my marks are still red which means they are fresh. Ill make a commiment to myself starting today. The marks I DID get are almost all gone. There are 4 marks that are still red!! lets see what happens. BTW I gained 10 pounds in ONE WEEK and thats how I got most of my marks. I am hispanic with dark skin.
I used a small bottle of this for a while.
I don't think it did THAT much greatness.
My skin was still relatively dry after, and I didn't notice any scars fading due to use. It did make my elbows and knees nice and smooth though :D But I don't think it lives anywhere near up to the hype.
I've found better products since.
- Didn't fade scars
- Didn't really do much at all
- Made me itchy and gross feeling.
Best moisturizer ever. I only use it on my face, but it works wonders. Acne scars? Gone. Dry skin? Gone. Uneven skin tone? Gone. If you use Bio Oil almost religiously, you'll be rewarded in the end. It's greatly endorsed by users at the Soompi forums, and they were totally right. I don't use facial moisturizers on my face anymore... Just Bio Oil, that's all I need. Even in the cold winter times, I only needed Bio Oil. Miracles, I say, miracles.
I absolutely love this stuff and would be lost without it! I smothered my belly, breasts, thighs and bum with this during two pregnancies and I don't have a single stretch mark. I swear Bio Oil is the reason why. Since my last baby, 10 months ago, I've continued to use it every day - in my baths and to moisturise afterwards. I occasionally use it at night, beneath my La Mer, if my skin's feeling particularly "tight" but it doesn't cause breakouts. It's a fab all-rounder, and reasonably priced, too. You don't need to use too much so it does last for quite some time. It's yet another product that I hope isn't discontinued...
So happy with this! I find oils so convenient to use after showers on wet skin instead of a cream and I have tried pretty much most of them. The only one I kept buying despite it not moisturising enough was the Clarins toning body oil. Then I discovered this. I can honestly say that it moisturises beautifully. I don't use this on my face. The scent is very light and doesn't interfere with my perfume. I think I have found my staple body moisturiser at last - and if it can do wonders for my winter skin, I'll most certainly be using it during summer.
