Is Bio-Oil a miracle cure for skin problems?

Beauty Cred on 4 May 2008 at 12:00am

Bio-Oil review quick take: The anti-aging benefits of Bio-Oil are not immediate or dramatic enough to use as daily facial care.

I do like the hydrating feel of it though, even on my hands & nails. Need more time to assess its claims for scars, stretch marks & discolorations, and it could also use better packaging - it can be a bit messy.

Have you tried invicible scars? It perfectly work on scars, spots and hyper-pigmentation. Also, really good for anti-ageing spots. Personally experienced.

Never been treated with it. I've used it for more than 6 months but i didn't see any considerable results on my skin. I rather go for invicible scars. It evens out skin tone and is great for treating scars and marks.

Hello. I am a light brown skinned African American boy. I would like to know if bio oil would fade my scars. They are light browish scars that are only about one shade darker than my original skin color. Would bio oil fade these?? And how long should it take?? I have school begining in 3 weeks and I want these at least BARELY NOTICEABLE. ( in which people have to stare hard to fully see them )

Hello. Im a light brown african American and I would lile to know if bio oil will fade my scars. Thet arent dark, but like a light brown, only about like one shade darker than my original skin color. So will bio oil fade these at least to the point in which u gotta squint and pucker ur eyes hard to see em??? ( as in barely noticeable) And how long should these take?? Like really, only one dab of blush would make these look like my real skin color.

Use the best antibacterial body soap to keep your skin healthy and free from many skin problems. It contains some natural ingredients like tea tree oil, eucalyptus oil and jojoba oil. They are very much helpful to protect against skin problems.

Bio-oil works. It lightened my dark spots in about a month.. However, it can burn the skin. I had a scar and out some around it. Over 1-3 days, it burned the skin really bad. It was really black. I've learned to never put bio-oil on irritated skin.

Hello, I had been to Canada during my Christmas holiday and when I returned to my home country UK, I found out that my skin is becoming dry. On the recommendation of one of my close-friend I have started using Bio-Oil and so far I am happy with the results. Apparently, I also had few pimples when I came back from my holiday so I changed my diet as well. I only apply Bio-Oil during night, before going to bed so that it absorbs deeply in my skin. I have few questions here: 1. What's the quantity we need to apply on the face? 2. Whilst, using Bio-Oil is it recommended to use tea-tree oil? Because, I found out that tea-tree is making my skin a little dry. 3.Are there any side-effects of Bio-Oil if I apply all over the face? Please reply! Thanks, Kathrin

OK i am 17 and i use it for my stretch marks. I have pretty bad stretch marks on my sides, upper arms and lower stomach. bio oil took the color away in 7 days. within 20 they were almost gone and they were pretty severe. I have quite sensitive skin so that might be why they went quite fast. but it shows they work. if u have tougher skin u may see results a little bit longer but will still see them :) i use 1-2 drops per area and i still have 75% of my bottle left after a month :) about 40 uses and it's a very small bottle that cost £4.50!!! bio oil is great and i would advise to anyone.

I have been using Bio-Oil for the last 2 years and will probably continue to use it. I had discoloration problems, acne marks, and scars on my face. After 3 months, my skin looked clear and felt so smooth. Since then, I have never stopped using it. Its also a good moisturizer especially in winter. :-)

I tried this for uneven skin (hyper pigmentation), acne scarring and stretch marks for about a month, I used the entire bottle because I was using it pretty much all over and faithfully. Unfortunately, I didnt notice any difference. My skin is really resilient though and I am a fair skinned african american and my skin scars easily and very darkly. The only thing I've seen improve the appearance of my scars is Mederma. Its so commercial, I know, but it worked wonders for my deepest scars only after 2 weeks I could see a dramatic difference. I've tried a lot of stuff, Meladerm, Lightening creams, Oils, Cocoa Butter etc. I hope this has helped :)

I have been using Bio Oil for about 3 YEARS once a day on my face, i am a 38 year old man always in the sun, before i started using bio oil, i had a very freckly face, slight wrinkles around my eyes and a scar on my forehead, these have completely vanished and just last week i was asked for id when buying a bottle of wine. i look younger and my skin feels great. i love this product.

So exited about this product, I just got it & reading all the positive testimonials about how great it has worked for many of you out there, has me full of hope for it to also work for me. I have some stretch-marks, little aging skin areas & uneven skin tones. I will give it the 90-days to see what awesome changes happen for me. :)

I have been using bio oil on my 5yr old daughter who had very bad uneven skin tone on both legs for over a year now! We have tried all sorts of creams including steroids to try clear it up but nothing worked! However, after only 3 or 4 weeks of bio oil she is like a different girl! We try to put it on twice a day but sometimes it just get done once but it is really working! :) she is not completely clear but I believe a few more weeks of oil will do, somehow I think there will always be bio oil in my house!
