I have quite a bit of scars over the years and so far, this product hasn't done much for them. I honestly have not been using this product religiously so maybe that's why it's not been working ...
I know that an overnight change is too much to ask for. However, I can barely use it once daily much less twice as recommended.
I will not repurchase this. I am much too impatient to wait for months to see a change. I will use what is left of my bottle (which is at least 95% full). Instead, I will just cover my scars up with sunblock with a good amount of SPF and let time take its toll.
I like this product, but I'm not sure it's any different any baby oil or mineral oil. The bottle seems a little messy as well - so if you are going to use it, expect halfway thru no matter how careful you are with it your bottle will be greasy. So, aside from messy the application is easy and I love to use this after waxing my legs to get rid of residue and as a moisturizer (since I usually do wax shortly after a shower). I'm not sure about any claims about fading scars or stretch marks, but it did help with some persistent eczema I had on my chest and it has not come back. I used this product like a moisturizer since I have dry skin. On my face, my skin is pretty oily and also for my chest. This product did not break out my chest or back but I wouldn't take the chance on my face - in my experience no matter what the product says ANY oil on my face will break me out.
I don't know why i even bought this since i always break out from oils and it happened with this one too. Already after few times use i got really nasty pimples all over my body so i gave this away. Smell wasn't too good either.
I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone who has a oily skin to medium oily skin.
After applying this on my face, I had huge break outs and it dilated my pores.
It did not do anything to my blemishes.
Smells great and I guess it does moisturize...but...
IT DOESN'T DO WHAT IT CLAIMS!!!
It had no effect in diminishing scar marks or evening my skin tone.
I applied this on my back for my pimple spots and it gave me more and bigger pimples. I was so stupid to buy this, this is DAMN EXPENSIVE!!
The only thing I like about this product is that it smells nice.
I use this product as a serum for my face. Although I have combination skin, it doesn't break me out at all. I add one or two drops to my toner each night and it's a great moisturizer for my skin. I think the effects are comparable to more expensive products like advanced night repair from estee lauder. It makes my complexion look very dewey in the morning.
Verdict on scars though- no effect.
This has no effect whatsoever. Scars did not fade after application for a year! What a waste of time and effort!
I've got psoriasis, and have honestly tried every moisturiser on the market. Bio Oil isn't the worst I've tried, but it's not worth the price. Your skin will feel quite moisturised for a few days after you start using it - and it is easy to apply - but this improvement quickly tails off. It's not terrible, but it doesn't have the best long-term results.
(If you're looking for a cheaper version, try Rescue Oil. Almost as effective, and a fraction of the price. They seem to sell it in most pound shops in the UK)
meh. its fine. but Emu and Josie Maran Argan Oil combo is my winner so I'll stick with that. Bio Oil is not all it professes to be IMHO. And the fragrance is...well, TOO fragrant. makes my nose itch. Sorry Bio Oil.
This oil is fantastic for dry skin on my face. My undereye area is ridiculous! I only bought this yesterday. I already have dry skin and worse I moved to Colorado, that's not the bad part, the dry air here is horrible on my skin. I looked ancient! I actually tried this over my makeup yesterday and knew immediately I was a fan. Last night I applied all over my face and neck, after my shower this morning I applied all over my face and neck again before my moisturzer and eye cream. My face did not look even the slightest bit dry ALL DAY! After I washed and used my clarisonic this evening, my skin still felt and looked great and soft and NOT DRY! So soft! Unbelievable! I did read that it evens skin tone quite well and I'm excited for that. My neck and chest already look loads better after 24 hours of use, my skin has never been this moisturized, NOT greasy! I love it! I'll update if/when I see other signs of improvement such as evening of tone and fine line reduction (which this does immediately for the lines you think are fine lines but are just dry or dehydrated). I'll even try it on my scars!
