After seeing Bio Oil advertised as an excellent product I thought I would give it a try. It has a pleasant smell. It works nicely on dry skin by leaving it silky smooth. It did not reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks. It's just a good body oil.

Its a very soothing oil its smells really nice and i love the peachy pienk colout. However after a couple of night of using it i start getting a rash. I have stoped and started using it agaim and every time the same thing happens. I have very sensetive skin tho.
Its a bit thin aswell i jave used better bio oils for scaring. I couldent tell that it did anything for my skin.
I got it when I was pregnant to help prevent stretch marks.. I applied it on belly many times during the day especially during the end of pregnancy and didn't find any valid reason to use it again and again... Just normal oil..
I started using this product following surgery to reduce the visibility of the surgical scars. I thought it did a reasonably good job. Although the scars are still visible the visibility is significantly reduced particularly for one of the scars which is only visible in a couple of small patches along the scar line. I used the product for more than a year.
Tips: Apply at least twice a day.
I'm not sure that I could really say this worked any particular miracles, so I can't say it 'does what it says'. However, I never took before and after photos and its hard to say in hindsight what was the natural healing process/fading process and what was due to the bio oil. HOWEVER - it works just as well as a body oil and makes skin silky smooth. So i would use it for that alone. But don't expect a miracle :(
This is a lovely oil with nice smell which is supposed to decrease stretches during and after pregnancy. It absorbs well and fast and has fresh smell. The key with this oil is to use periodically twice a day otherwise you won't see results. Honestly for me it didn't work well but still it leaves my skin soft and nourished.
I had two pregnancy and I used this oil with both of them, leave my skin soft and help the itchy skin during the last months. Used up to 2 times daily in my tummy help to reduce my stretch marks. Well I ll say that if I ll get pregnant again, I ll definitely use it again.
In my opinion Bio-Oil isn't a bad product, but I certainly don't feel that it is a 'miracle oil'. I used it all through my pregnancy and although I only made it to 7 months pregnant (so I wasn't huge), I still ended up with a few stretch-marks on my hips. After my pregnancy I continued to use Bio-oil religiously for over a year, and I haven't noticed any difference at all. One thing that I do like about it is that I have never had a patch of dry skin in almost 2 years of using it. Dry skin has been an issue for me off-and-on through my teens and early twenties, but not since using this. I have since found a cheaper oil that works just as well, but if Bio-oil was the same price, I wouldn't hesitate to use it again. I have many friends who swear by Bio-oil, so I wouldn't want to put anyone off trying it for themselves.
I've got stretch marks and acne scars and Bio Oil literally did nothing for me! I just felt like I was rubbing olive oil on myself - which would probably be just as effective honestly. It has a mild scent, so that's good if you're sensitive to smells. If it works for others, great. But I've not yet met anyone that has benefited from this product.
Tips: Try a small size first to see if it works for you.
I bought bio oil for stretch marks mainly. After giving birth to my daughter, I had a few stretch marks on my stomach, but I found that the best ‘cure’ for stretch marks, in all honesty, is just time. Over time, they’ve faded naturally and are now no longer a major issue for me. But I know for a fact that bio oil had nothing to do with that as I gave up on it after giving it a good trial. Time was the only thing that helped me with stretch marks. So I’d give bio oil a mark of one kiss out of five for helping me with that particular skin issue.. Ditto with uneven skin tone and scars. To be fair, I don’t have many scars and my skin tone is pretty even overall, but still ... for any minor problem patches, I found bio oil did absolutely zilch for me in those areas.
One area I DO think this oil is useful in is with extremely dry or ‘dehydrated skin’, which is one of the other claims it makes on the packaging. It does moisturise well and soften the skin. It feels pretty greasy when you apply it and it does take a while to absorb, but it’s very hydrating. So it’s for that reason I’d personally give this oil two kisses out of five. Because it works well as a moisturiser. But I agree with one of the other reviewer’s comments below that it’s just a ‘glorified moisturiser’ because any other really good-quality, reputable moisturiser can also help with dry skin, you don’t necessarily need to rush out and buy this oil if you have dehydrated skin. In fact, a fair few other oils can also help hydrate the skin - not just bio oil.
