I bought this hoping it would help me as my struggle with acne has left my face very scarred and blotchey.
I applied a small amount to my scarred areas after my usual night routine only to wake up the next morning with yellow heads everywhere I'd applied the oil.
I've since given it another chance out of desperation and I wake up with the same cystic breakouts every time.
I used this for about 3-4 months this summer. It was a nicely scented, light oil and a few drops goes a long way. It is moisturising without making me greasy, not unlike olive oil. It is nice on the face and body bits that tend to get rough, chaffed or dry. However, I did NOT notice fading of my scars or stretch marks even after 2X daily use for 3 months as recommended by the maker. Regardless, the small bottle is nice to use because you can easily use very tiny amounts. I think I will stick with olive oil....but I must admit that I travel alot so the tiny sized bottle is a practical addition to my travel kit so maybe I'll repurchase for that reason only.
I have extremely dry skin with rosacea. I was hoping this would be a good way to hydrate my skin. Nope. It broke me out with cystic pimples, which I never get. The smell is not unpleasant but not pleasant. Save your money and just rub baby oil all over your face.
This stuff is AMAZING - I was previously using a very overpriced product from Sephora to fade a small scar on my knee - it did nothing! I have been using BioOil for one week and 1/4 of the scar has completely returned to my normal skin color - I am in SHOCK!
I have started using this on my 15 year old stretch marks - nothing yet except for softer skin, but it's only been a week!
I have just started using this product about 2-3 weeks ago and my face is glowing. when i wake up in the morning, i am glowing and my skin looks even. I'm not sure about the strech marks yet becuase you are supposed to wait 3 months before you can really see the results. i have alot of faith in this product seeing as how much everyone is praising it. i did get 2 pimples when i first started using it but now im fine. i think the people who are complaining that it hasnt worked havent really given it the time to work. you wont see drastic results immediately as it says in the instructions. Also i have a son who is 10 months old and on the package it says that you can use it while pregnant to fight the appearance of stretch marks. Hardly anything is safe for pregnancy but if that is safe... I AM DEFINATELY SOLD! i just wish i used it when i was getting really big : (
I don;t know what's in it and I don;t care. I used a tiny bit through my hair and within minutes my scalp was aflame and i had to run adn wash it out because i had a severely allergic reaction. I'm anooyed because so many people said it was good but it didn't work for me. I gave the bottle away.
I'm going to bathe in this stuff! It's that good. So Walgreens lady tells me she uses this as her daily facial moisturizer, morning and night. It fades her brown spots. I told her I was oily, she says it's ok, I won't regret it. She was so adamant that I get this.... Well, after 1 day, my spots were less noticable. It moisturized so well and smells so yummy, that I started to dab some all over the place and guess what... instant itch and discomfort relief on my c-section scar! This stuff is shrinking my keyloid worm more effectively than the prescription steriod. I am going to see if I can find a Costco-size version and bath in it!
I've made this product one of the main items in my skincare routine. It's main benefit is to help fade scars. I've been using it on the back of my arms and legs, where I've neglected to give as much attention and protection as I do to my face and neck. I have very allergy-prone and acne prone skin, and this has neither given me a rash nor clogged my pores. It is both light in texture and fragrance. I love it. It is also one of the only products with chemical ingredients that I use regularly, because it is that great. The only reason I haven't given it a 5 is that it's not all natural, which is important to me. But otherwise it is awesome.
I was really hoping to like this product, as I am having some serious dryness in my cheeks area, but, it's looking like this one is a bust.
Unlike other reviewers, I purchased this product to use on my face. The very first day I tried it, my face just looked moisturized, no big whoop. The second day I used it, I swear I thought I saw a 'glow' about my face that wasn't there, so I started to get excited! The third day and fourth day? I woke up with itchy skin and red bumps all over. Allergic reaction? Clogged pores? *sigh* I think it's clogged pores, and I will not be using this on my face again. I hope my skin will clear up soon. I really hoped to love this. Sadly, it's a pass.
I get stretch marks a lot on my hips and thighs even though I'm not growing any more or gaining weight, which is very frustrating. This stuff does a great job of softening them and making them look less noticeable.
