Bio-Oil

6 Jul

Price: RM32.90 and has been at this price since “launching”. What bullshit. Pharmacies are selling it at RM32.90 during launching with Promotion and now it’s still being sold at RM32.90.
Size: 60ml

I read a review about Bio-Oil from a forum, praising this product that it had diminished the face scars from acne and I bought this even though there were discounts for other products like Palmers Scar Serum and Cocoa Butter Formula Vitamin E Scar Serum.


It claims to:

improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. Its advanced formulation, which contains the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil™, also makes it highly effective for numerous other skin concerns, including aging skin and dehydrated skin.

On new scars, Bio-Oil should be applied only once the wound has healed, and should never be used on broken skin.

The official site http://www.bio-oil.info lists the steps in how the scars, stretch marks, aging (sagging & wrinkled), wrinkled and uneven skin tone are formed. It’s more technical than other skincare websites, which is cool (and smart). The Bio-Oil box moves, following which link you are at.

Bio-Oil (like any other skincare product) should be stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. I store mine in the fridge. Feels great (cooling) when applied to skin.

PurCellin Oil™ is a laboratory recreation of the preen gland oil of ducks. Ducks! Unlike some companies that do not publish their ingredients online, Bio-Oil lists them out here. However, looking at the ingredients – parafin (?), I have my doubts whether this product really works. I assume the ingredients are listed based on highest to lowest percentage. *check the box* Yep.

In Wikipedia – Paraffin:

Liquid paraffin, or mineral oil, is a mixture of heavier alkanes, and has a number of names, including nujol, adepsine oil, alboline, glymol, medicinal paraffin, saxol, or USP mineral oil. It has a density of around 0.8 g/cm3.[2] Liquid paraffin (medicinal) is used to aid bowel movement in persons suffering chronic constipation; it passes through the alimentary canal without itself being taken into the body, but it limits the amount of water removed from the stool. In the food industry, where it may be called “wax”, it can be used as a lubricant in mechanical mixing, applied to baking tins to ensure that loaves are easily released when cooked and as a coating for fruit or other items requiring a “shiny” appearance for sale.[8] It is often used in infrared spectroscopy, as it has a relatively uncomplicated IR spectrum. When the sample to be tested is made into a mull (a very thick paste), liquid paraffin is added so it can be spread on the transparent (to infrared) mounting plates to be tested.

An effective, although comedogenic (clog pores!), moisturiser in toiletries and cosmetics such as Vaseline. (mmm comedogenic – how’s that going to improve the skin appearance?)

Ho! Applying kerosene to skin to improve scar. Crazy?

Paraffinum Liquidum
Triisononanoin
Cetearyl Ethylhexanoate thickener

I see that I still have acne & bruised skin scars. There’s some improvement but not much. Bio-Oil needs to clarify – what type of scars?

*************************

Update 3 yrs later, 20 Jul 2011 (this was originally posted in 2008): Since there are ppl still commenting about this product, I’d like to update this today :)

I remembered I had used it on my butt briefly hahaa.. since I had lost weight and gained weight when I got sick. Nothing serious. Just fever and cold can make me lose 1-3kg and it will take weeks to gain it back. Not that I’m counting the weight, as long as I’m well but I minded the stretch marks, dang! I still hv them (stretch marks ugh) and I don’t think Bio Oil helped to lessen the marks though to be fair, I didn’t use the whole bottle on my butt but used it more on face and scars on my legs.

I only used 1 bottle till it was finished and didn’t purchase another. I noticed that now the price is RM 32.95 (60ml), RM 54.95 (125ml) as published in Bio-Oil MY. So the “promotion” when I bought it was only RM0.05! 5 cents! WTH… That wasn’t much of a promotion! What a big hoo ha just to launch a product. Chey!

If you are looking at this positively, that means the product’s price had gone down with the inflation these few years. More places have this product and I’m guessing it’s hitting lots of countries already..

    I’ve been using Bio Oil for about a month now and I’m turning into a fan of it. I had a baby 19 months ago and now I have stretch marks on my thighs all the way around. Not big ones, but small so I don’t know how the product works on the bigger ones. They were still very visible either way. After a few weeks of using Bio Oil I noticed a difference in the color of the stretch marks. Some have faded out as far as color goes. If you move he skin just right you can still sort of see them but barely. Those were the very short ones. I’m still working on the longer ones, but I love the product. It seems to be working for me. A bit slow, I guess, but very worth it to get rid of those horrid looking things that keep me far away from bathing suits.

    • Renee 13 January 2010 at 3:30 am #

      Bio-Oil has saved my skin. I just turned 40 and all of my life I have lived with horrible skin, my arms and legs have been scared by all manner of insects as I live in a tropical country. My scars from juvenile sores, kept me from participating in sports and enjoying the beach, since I always felt horribly exposed in bathing suits. At age 16, I was had to be subjected to monthly injections to control the sores. I grew out of the sores, but the scars are visible but quickly improving in the last month since I started using Bio-Oil

      A friend who has perfect skin told me of Bio-Oil, I was not convinced, since she did have to deal with my problems, however since buying the 2 onz bottle at 22.00 US dollars I have not regretted.

      I wore a knee length dress without stockings for the first time and it was broad daylight. The marks are not entirely gone but my skin has improved so much because it looks healthier and the scars don’t seem too bad now. My legs are alot lighter than the rest of my body, since I have covered them all my life. Everybody felt there was something different about me, since nobody really have any experience of me in skirts.

      I write this long comment, just to let others who have been trapped by their skin to try Bio-Oil, I wished I had tried it the first time I was told about it.

      It moves on the shelf at the price it is very quickly in my country. I recently got a friend to bring me a 4oz bottle from the States, I was above myself with excitement when I got it. It is the one ritual I take very seriously, oiling myself.

      It really works

      • Cindy Singh 9 July 2010 at 10:35 am #

        Thank you so much for this comment as I am 29 but have horrible scars on my legs since i was 10 yrs old from bike accidents and other scaring along the years. I was very tentative on buying the product thinking that my skin was not as young as it use to be to have things penetrate into to work. I really hope I have the same results as you. Thank you again!

    • RIkkila Heard 30 July 2010 at 4:44 am #

      Hey my name is Rikkila.. so do dis work i have stretch marks all on my side and i dont like them. so do you think i should get some dis bio oil and see how it? Are just tell me do it work? i dont wanna get it if dont work for me.

      • Ems 11 November 2010 at 4:05 am #

        hi. yes it does work on stretch marks. ive used bio oil now for a year and non stop for the last 6months id say. my stretchmarks have lost all the dark colour now. they are still there but without the dark colour they look paler and not as bad as before. also the bio oil seems to have smoothened them where they were all puckered up at the navel and above. i use it morning and night and go through a 200ml bottle in a week to 10days. very expensive i know but i get it off amazon at half the price of chemist and shops in UK and though its costing me £10 a week, i would never live without it. my elbows which were dark patches are now same skin tone (im mixed race black/white). at first i carried on using it and then i found my elbows started flaking skin off and as i kept on, the dark skin patches flaked off bit by bit revealing light even tone which blended with the rest of my skin. this did take a while (months of continual daily use). i use it on my face now morning and night. i love this. i need this oil. all i say is dont expect a quick fix. it took months with me and i keep using daily and will carry on forever as long as i can afford it. thank you bio oil xxxx

    • Ems 11 November 2010 at 4:07 am #

      ps. my stretch marks are from pregnancies in 1983, 1989 and 1991 and bio oil is treating them and working (check my post below). iv also posted on my use of bio oil many months ago x

  2. Jason 23 October 2008 at 3:16 am #

    This is a scam! Nothing besides lazers can fix this!!!

    • Vincent Collin 29 October 2009 at 4:00 am #

      dude can you email me why you think this is a scam? i was starting to get my hopes up, Does it work at all? i have deep scars! does bio oil work?

      • Lyn 11 April 2010 at 10:35 am #

        Hi Vincent. Not sure what scars u have. I had a open heart surgery 2 years ago, I started applying bio oil almost 2 months after surgery and now the scar’s very faint. Everyone’s amaze that you can hardly see it. Even my heart surgeon is impressed and asked me about it. So from my own experience,I dare say it’s NOT a scam and tell everyone who asks how good this product is!

    • Ems 11 November 2010 at 4:10 am #

      jason, i dont know what scam you are talking about. but im not a scam, im a genuine person in her 40s who uses this product and swears by it. i really do!

    • Ems 11 November 2010 at 4:13 am #

      what scam? post your comment but please dont judge and disregard the many people like myself who use this product daily and swear by it. you may call it a scam if you use if for a week or two and say it doesnt work. but many of us here use bio oil week after week and have seen the amazing results over long term use of it. so please dont call me a scam and dont call all the other genuine people who post here and use bio oil and want to share with the world how wonderful this product is. yes i wish it were cheaper but i can not find anything that works like bio oil so you know what? il just keep on using it cos it WORKS!!!

      • reena 25 October 2011 at 4:47 pm #

        agreed!!! it works on my skin too!! i’m using it every day on my face and guess what my face now become more supple, more lighter, the acne scar had been repaired, pigmentation is also faded, i am quite satisfied with bio oil…i bought the small one at my first trial and when it almost finish i bought the big bottle so that i can use it as much and as frequent as i want..TQ BIO OIL!!

      • Wilna 13 April 2012 at 2:50 pm #

        Hi, i have a bad scar on my face, its a sunken scar, how long should i use bio oil for? i have been using it for 3 weeks now, massaging the scar with bio oil for almost 2 hours a night.

  3. Shelley 31 October 2008 at 11:31 am #

    I figured I would try it on my face where I have some small acne scars, this stuff is very heavy and oily it made my face broke out so bad now I have to deal with pimples from the oil all over again.. Don’t waste your money if you have acne due to oily skin this will make it much worse..

  4. Lynne 10 November 2008 at 7:49 pm #

    I have very sensitive skin and have had acne in the past year that my usual prescription lotion was struggling with. I tried bio-oil on the reccommendation of my flatmate and love it. It does not irritate my skin, or cause extra spots. I still get a few spots but nothing like before. The really dry skin on my forehead is improved and overall my skin feels smooth and moisturised with far fewer “under the skin spots-in-waiting” than before.

  5. Tania 17 November 2008 at 5:42 pm #

    I found out I was pregnant with twins when I was about 6 weeks pregnant.
    I used bio-oil right till the very end of my pregnancy which was to full term. I never got any stretch marks, which I was truly amazed at as I went from 62kg to 96kg. I really believe bio-oil helped to keep my skin soft and supple when my skin was expanding, After all stretch marks are from the skin splitting.
    Bio-oil gets 100% thumbs up from me.

    • Ems 11 November 2010 at 4:16 am #

      Tania i wish bio oil had been around when i had my kids. sadly it wasnt and i wouldnt have been able to afford it then. i use it now to treat the damage the pregnancies have caused and i am so glad it has gone some way to help repair my skin to some extent. i still have the stretch marks and i hate them but they look much better thanks to bio oil. wish i could just vanish them away but no.. not even surgery will do that becos once you have them up above your navel, no tummy tuck can cut that much skin away so you still end up with them lower down and a scar. so il keep what iv got and carry on with my bio oil to improve the appearancex

  6. Kaley-Ann 26 November 2008 at 2:37 am #

    I’ve had stretch marks since I was 13 years old as a result of rapid weight gain that began when I started on my liver transplant medication.
    Didn’t think anything would help at all. I’m now 19 and started using Bio-Oil a month ago (twice a day after showers) and I am already seeing results. They are way less visible which goes to show that it works….. on SIX year old stretch marks. It’s just amazing to me!
    I 100% recommend Bio-Oil! 101% even :)

    • kaun 11 June 2010 at 5:59 am #

      hi there kaley, i have stretch marks, scars since i was 12. now im 25 with 3 children. i just started using this product 30 mins ago right when i got out of the shower. i really hope this works for me. i hope to hear from u!

    • brittany 20 August 2010 at 12:30 pm #

      so it really works how long was it till you saw results cause mine are old. and there a really white silverish and im very white complecteddd, i would like to know thanks.

    • Ems 11 November 2010 at 4:18 am #

      my stretch marks are over 19years old and bio oil is working!!

  7. Mish 1 January 2009 at 5:19 pm #

    It WORKS! IT WORKS! IT WORKS! I have shingles and they itch, I scratch, I scar intensely. I had resigned myself to be a fat AND spotty 40+ woman – but I decided to try one more new product.
    I used it and the scars faded very fast compared to what its like without. I am pretty impressed and believe me, I’m VERY hard to please. It faded the dark patched on my knees and elbows and evened out the tone of my skin so well I noticed one day I was GLOWING! Good stuff.

    I developed eczema, overnight, after a shocking experience 3 1/2 years ago. My doctors tried prescription pills and ointments, while I worked my way down every list of home remedies on the Internet. I even subjected myself to tanning beds in the hope of finding some relief.

    Nothing, absolutely nothing, made the slighest difference, and the eczema only got worse.

    I found Bio-Oil and just as the eczema started marching across my face. The condition improved OVERNIGHT.

    My scalp and the insides of my ears are healing. Thousands of dollars and lots of idiotic advice later (“Wash your hair in Listerine!”), this wonderful little product is making a difference.

    • jinjji 10 November 2010 at 9:07 am #

      I have eczema bad, all over my body and i want to kno will buying this product help my skin in anyway?

      • Margie 8 April 2013 at 11:51 am #

        Hi–I had bad eczema for 20 years–had bloody arms and thumbs. We spent a fortune on doctors. I tried Penaten creme–after 3 or 4 applications it was gone for a year. I is available in the diaper creme section of a drugstore.

    • Donna 6 September 2012 at 1:07 pm #

      Im so glad to read this! fingers crossed it works for me too! Agh Listerine! cant imagine that ending well lol,
      Thankyou :)

    • Margie Smith 8 April 2013 at 11:45 am #

      I had eczema and had bloody arms and thumbs from Sept till May every year for 20 years. I then used Penaten creme–it went away after putting it on 3 or 4 times, and usually I didnt have to re apply till the next fall. It is available in the diaper rash section of drug stores.
      My family had spent a fortune going to doctors before that, and nothing worked.

  9. Amanda 30 January 2009 at 3:42 am #

    I am 18 and pregnant. I began using bio-oil early (8 weeks) and I am only 4 months pregnant and I am seeing obvious stretch marks on my boobs and sides. I have only gained 9 lbs in the past 4 months. I do not understand why I used this product and will continue to look for something better to use. i believe that it is not good at preventing stretch marks only treating existing.

  10. sibongile mtini 24 February 2009 at 8:16 pm #

    I am Sibongile Mtini, I’m 31 years old. I was in volved in a taxi accident 6 years back. I think it was 2004 and I had to have an operation on my right arm, which was very bad. I had windows glass on it but firstly I would like to thank Dr R. Miller from River Side Mall (Rondebosch).

    I felt embarrassed to wear short sleves tops and when I was arround with my friends I felt like they are staring at it. I didn’t want to got with them to the parties because they are going to wear the nice stuff and I can not because of my scares. I saw Bio-oil on the advitisment and in the TV. Earlier in 2006 I went to the phamacy near by me. Wow! Its amazing, it worked for me and I believe it wil also work for you, just try it. My scars are much better and soft like baby’s skin.

    Viva! Bio-oil

    Sometimes people forget the basics about basic skin care. If you start to notice stretch marks, you should start lots drinking water. Water rehydrates your skin, thus preventing or even reducing stretch marks.

    • liza 31 October 2009 at 5:07 pm #

      for real ? how does that works ? :)

      • Solarya 11 June 2010 at 10:16 am #

        Please note that stretch marks are hereditary as well. It also depends on your skin colour. I had 2 kids with no stretch marks and did not use any creams or oils.
        No water does not prevent stretch marks.

      • Ems 11 November 2010 at 4:23 am #

        whoa!! i drank lots of water and got lots of stretch marks from 3 pregnancies. lots and lots! :-(

  12. Fluffmitten 27 February 2009 at 8:09 am #

    I have a lot of old white scar tissue on my arm (10-15 years old) and Bio-Oil didn’t work on that at all, but after reading these comments I’m going to try it on my much more recent red scars (I get a lot of spots).

  13. Happycamper 6 March 2009 at 5:56 am #

    Come on people…IT IS A SCAM.

    Heck, I’ll bet money that these “people” who are recommending it is the same person.

    Hey, baby, how much did Bio Oil pay you to create this blog entry?

    • Olivia 28 June 2009 at 6:49 am #

      it works. simple as that.

    • kim 6 October 2009 at 3:38 pm #

      Bio Oil has made a name for itself, it truly works. As a person who has had bad eczema since the age of 3, I’m so happy that i’ve found something that works to moisturize while not damaging my skin.
      I can’t use moisturizers, i can only use my eczema ointment which is so greasy (i can’t use the cream version it dries out my skin) and contains cortisteroids which make your skin look older, thin it out, just bad longterm effects.

      Bio oil is the only thing that works for me as both eczema treatment And moisturiser. Eczema sufferers, just ask your pharmacist!

      • sherry smith 13 April 2010 at 3:06 am #

        My experience is pretty good with this oil. I am very sceptical as admitting my vanity have tried many products over the years with no avail. No matter what the cost. Although by itself I find the bio oil a little heavy, I mix mine with a little “Pure” aloe gel and it cuts it and seems to penetrate better. I use it on the backs of my hands for age spots and at night as a bedtime application with the aloe. Interesting but I’ve noticed the lines around my mouth not as bad and my pores on my face are smaller. It has not caused breakouts, works slowly, but it’s working.

    • Kristen 23 October 2009 at 8:33 am #

      Just so you know not everybody has the need to get paid because they like something. If you haven’t used the product then you really shouldn’t voice your comment. I’ve suffered from acne my whole life using everything from proactive to acutane. And nothing has really worked. I started to use bio oil for about two weeks and it’s actually clearing up my skin plus evening my skin tone and lessening my scars on my face. For me since I’ve personally used the product I know for sure it works!

    • Ems 11 November 2010 at 4:24 am #

      a scam? im not a scam. its an open forum for anyone to leave feed back. im a normal mom in her 40s leaving feedback like anyone else. NOT A SCAM!!

    • skinnychiq 15 July 2014 at 5:27 am #

      I understand that there are some blogs that are paid or sponsored. But I think people here are really transparent on their experiences with this product.

  14. ADEOLA 7 March 2009 at 11:09 am #

    just started using Bio oil today. Will keep u posted as per how it works and believe me honestly am going to be sincere about it!

  15. Lynn 16 March 2009 at 12:24 am #

    I have used this bio-oil on stretch marks as well as a couple of scars and so far so good they are lighting up. I wasn’t paid to write this and this is my first post, I like the stuff. What people fail to realize that everyone reacts to things differently something my work for one person and not another person. Just like I was told pure coco butter is good for your skin guess what it broke me out really bad but that doesn’t mean I’m going to bash coco butter it just wasn’t for me.

    • misha 3 September 2009 at 6:19 am #

      I just started using bio-oil yesterday, and my skin is so soft. I simply love it for a moisturizer for skin that is open to see such as arms, chest, and neck. Legs in the summer. My boyfriend was touching my arms today and made a comment on how soft my skin felt. It is awesome. my chest was spotty and a little old and dryer then it should be at 30, and I already can tell it looks better. I donot know how well it will work on my stretch marks but as soft as it makes my skin I recommend this product even if just for a deep moisturizer,however, I wouldn’t put anything like it on my face. Too oily!

  16. Niq 17 March 2009 at 10:41 am #

    I have bad acne scars on my back and chest I want to try Bio-Oil to see if it will clear up.Keep you posted on how it works!!!!

    • lynn 7 May 2010 at 1:26 pm #

      Please tell me how it’s working for you. i would like to see how it works bc i wanted to use it also for my back and chest. i broke out and some acne scars are left behind. please keep me posted. thank you

  17. Mel 17 March 2009 at 8:48 pm #

    I am an african american woman, who has been fighting acne scars with fade creams, and onion based ointments (Maderma). I went once again, to pick up more gunk, when I thought about Bio Oil. Today is Tuesday, I started Sunday, and already see results. The hardness of the older scars is going away. My husband told me my skin had a nice glow. I do not rub it in, I dab it directly on the scar, and leave it to be absorbed. It does not run, and stays in place. After only 2 days, I am impressed.

    • Solarya 11 June 2010 at 10:18 am #

      That is great to hear Mel

  18. Dr Thoms 18 March 2009 at 8:37 am #

    I have been using this product for a week on scars 1-2 yrs old. I can honestly say that it is the best product i have ever found. My scars are far less visible and my skin much healthier.
    I am usually a cynic towards such things so am pleasantly suprised by how well this is working and will continue with it for the immediate future.

    I have been using BioOil on my face and neck for about 2 years as my night skin care regime. Everyone tells me that I do not look my 57years. After recommending it to my 80 year old friend and my 56 year old sister in law over the phone, then after 6 months travelling to see them, I couldn’t believe the vast improvement in their skin too.

  20. Maya 2 April 2009 at 12:20 am #

    I really attracted to this product after reading all the comments. Can i ask? Is it only for strecth marks and acne? Cos i have this 7years fungus scar on my body,is it possible to fade it by using bio oil? Please tell me.. Thanks.

  21. brandi 2 April 2009 at 3:45 am #

    well, nobody is paying me to write this review and ive spent alot of money buying these bottles. Ive spent months applying this stuff before seeing results and doing alot of massaging probably like 30 minutes and using it with other products. This stuff works if you use it and you are disiplined!!

    • skinnychiq 14 July 2014 at 11:58 pm #

      I’m reading all the comments here. I just bought my first bottle of Bio Oil. I’ve been very desperate in finding a product that would make my tummy look normal after giving birth for 2 yrs and 3 mos. now. Though I know it would not be 100% going back to its normal state. I’m just hoping this would somehow make a change on me. My self-esteem is getting low because of my stretchmarks. Sometimes when I look at it in the mirror its like a monster’s tummy!!argghh!!

  22. Mz binkie 7 April 2009 at 5:15 pm #

    Heyah wel first of all, this product hardout works. It has given me a lighter skin tone and my scars are also dissapearing. TRY IT, IT WORKS.

  23. Helen 7 April 2009 at 5:27 pm #

    Hello, Ive only been using bio oil for 6 days now and already Ive seen a massive change on my body. My scars are going away, My stretch marks are completely gone. To all those people who think that we’re getting paid to write this, well your wrong cause Im telling the truth when i sae “It can take away your scars and stretch marks and replace it with soft, clear, gorgeous skin”..

  24. KJ 7 April 2009 at 10:15 pm #

    I don’t even remember what made me pick up a bottle of bio-oil at the drugstore a couple of years ago BUT ~ I love this stuff. I’m 49 and have been using it on my face, just a little bit to soak in before moisturizer, twice a day for 2 years. It doesn’t make my face oily, it’s evened out skin tone a bit and I have no dry patches. My face and neck are smooth. I’ve been using it on my legs in the winter. I get so many positive comments about my skin and friends and family want to know what I’m doing. I’m happy to share. It’s made a difference and I’m addicted. I won’t be without it.

  25. Bee 11 April 2009 at 10:11 am #

    First and foremost….why do people alsyas think things are a scam? That is so discouraging to people that are trying to find a real way to fix what is a reall issue in their lives. With that being said, I have been using Bio Oil for about a month now and I can not be more delighted with it. I am a light skin African American woman and I have tried just about everything you can buy to get rid of dark marks on various parts of my body without much success. Since I have been using this product, I have seen a drastic improvement. I use it at least twice a day and even more than that on spots that are really bad. It works better than anything I have tried and is suppossed to be good at clearing up and evening out your skin tone. Bio Oil gets 2 thumbs up from me and no one put me up to saying this. Wow! How about that?!

    i am a 41 year old woman who had open heart surgery in june of 08. i have been using bio-oil for 1 month and have seen a huge improvement on my scar. i would recomment this product to anyone.

  28. Samantha 21 April 2009 at 10:18 am #

    Hey everyone, Im 17 and I am almost 8 months pregnant, I didnt actually know that i had strech marks until one day i looked at the back of my thighs and i was freaked. My friend told me she heard about bio oil and i went and got it the next week. ive been using it for 3 or 4 weeks and i use it on my breasts stomach sides and legs 2 times a day and on my face at night after washing it. I dont know what the people who say its a rip off are talking about! I see an amazing difference already and just bought my 2nd bottle today. It does work just be patient and consistent. Oh and it makes skin feel amazing.

  34. dreamer 22 May 2009 at 9:08 pm #

    I have been using Bio Oil for about one week. It actually does not make my face oily at all – and I have normal to oily skin. I haven’t had a single breakout because of this product. It absorbs really well and my face feels really smooth with it. I’m going to start using it on my stretch marks because I like how soft my face is feeling after a week.

  35. jane doe 29 May 2009 at 11:47 pm #

    if pregnant no matter how much water u drink if your gonna stretch your gonna stretch all i had 2 drink when i was preg was water ive beenusing bio oil for a month now and my marks are so much lighter im a lighter skinned girl an my marks were like a dark skinned black person an since using bio oil they have lightened so much so that i can hide them w spray tan now an i still have 2 months of using it left

      Don’t you have a pharmacy there that sells it?

  39. Andrea 18 June 2009 at 1:32 am #

    I have just started using this product after i have had major surgery and decided to use it also on my stretch marks that cover my whole mid section. I have already noticed drastic results on the stretch marks but it will be a will to with the scar as it is so new.

    It also works really well on my son exzema and it has greatly reduced discomfort for him.

    I was told that if you are a smoker or a heavy drinker this will affect the outcome of your results.Best of luck but I too can say I already love this product. Thank Bio-Oil!

  40. Ana 13 July 2009 at 3:38 am #

    Great product. I’ve been using it for two months on my persistent adult acne, on which I had tried every treatment in the book to no avail, and it works. I have dry skin. It has evened out my skin tone, faded the brown spots, help with old acne scarring, it seems to lubricate the gunk out of the pores. Paraffin, mineral oil? Most creams have those ingredients.

  41. Dee V. 14 July 2009 at 11:43 am #

    I suddenly developed eczema about two years ago. Recently I had a flare-up and no doctor prescribed creams in the house. It was the weekend and I figured I would ride it out until Monday. Well it became worse, and by Sunday night I had missed my opportunity to go to the clinic. By 1:00am I had not slept a wink, The itching and discomfort had become unbearable. I didn’t know how to cope so I went to soak in the bath. When I got out I noticed the Bio Oil on the counter, I thought “Well it can’t hurt.” Almost immediately the itch went away and I was able to have a restful night. By morning my patches weren’t raised anymore, so I applied more. That was all I put on that day, and by afternoon I didn’t see a reason to go visit my doctor anymore. I’ve had about five flare-ups since then and each time I reach for the Bio Oil. Each time it doesn’t progress and dies down right away. I have not seen my doctor since.
    I had never written anything on the Internet before, but I hope that my experience will be helpful to someone else. It Worked for me, maybe it will work for you.

  42. ela 17 July 2009 at 5:14 am #

    i need help i’m about to purchase this product and i’m getting mixed reactions bout it im in a dillema can i get the real facts bout this product or anoda that works thanks!

  43. Mimi 17 July 2009 at 8:02 pm #

    If you’re not getting the perceived results from Bio oil, you may need to establish if you may need to exfoliate your skin first with a gentle exfoliant. This will clear clogged pores on your face and hopefully prevent the likelihood of your having breakouts and will enable the oil be better absorbed by the skin enabling you enjoy the noted benefits.

  44. austin 27 July 2009 at 7:01 am #

    This stuff is damn good….and I’m a guy. I use it on my ears for stretching. I try to use it twice a day. It actually makes my ear lobes thicker, as well as a little more elastic for stretching because the vitamins in it get blood flowing better to my ear lobes. BIO OIL IS THE BEES KNEES!

  45. TrinaJ 6 August 2009 at 8:34 pm #

    I’m an African-American woman and bought a bottle for stretch marks on my thighs but never used it consistantly. I planned a trip to the Caribbean and decided to humor myself try Bio-Oil twice a day to see if my stretch marks would fade. I also applied it to an area that eczema caused a dark blemish on my leg. After using the product for two weeks / twice a day I noticed the eczema area has faded and minimized in size. The strectch marks are still there but they have faded significantly. My skin is really soft. I apply a little on my face too. The blemishes have faded as well. They are still there but much lighter. I’ll continue my routine and see if these areas continue to fade. I like this product.

  46. Lady D 6 August 2009 at 11:18 pm #

    I am about to purchase this product to help eliminate my scars. Please let me know how effective is it and do I have to use it forever?

  47. Lily 14 August 2009 at 12:30 pm #

    Hi.
    I know Bio oil is not a scam. I have a very bad habiat of picking at my arms (the small bumps or pimples) and this causes me to get very bad scabs and then they trun into bad scars. I have been picking for at least one year. It is a hard habiat to break but I started using Bio Oil last year in August. If i hadn’t have used bio oil my arms would be a mess. I will admit they don’t looke normal now, but thats because i keep picking. But bio oil is very effective and hopefully i can break this habiat and let the bio oil clear up my skin. It is great just give it time and make sure you rub it in good.

  48. natalia 19 August 2009 at 9:38 am #

    Hi everyone! Bio-oil really rocks. I did not believe in this product the beginning but now i have to admit it. I have been using it for a month now and I see a massive change. I’m using it for my stretch marks and now I’ll try on my scar which is very old and bothers me a lot.
    it’s amazing really!

  49. anamaria 23 September 2009 at 6:09 am #

    I’ve tried bio-oil and I know of people who have used it and I can say it works and doesn’t work. Truth is a product will work for a qty of people, not all unless formulated for each skin type. I am a certified aromatherapist, I own an apothecary where I create oil blends for scars and stretch marks that no matter if it is young or old scarring it works bc its specifically formulated for each and every of my clients skin. I do agree with the original author of the article. If it works it is because of an ingredient that they don’t mention but with the ingredients that they do list, they haven’t ever been proven to help improve skin appearance. Truth be told, mineral oil should never be used on the skin, let alone your face for it has a very powerful drying power which ages the skin. That’s just my two cents of advice. :) God bless.

    • Anonymous 23 September 2009 at 10:09 am #

      so i guess i wouldnt be purchasing it…is it ok for you to recommend another product?

    • Will 13 July 2011 at 5:44 am #

      I’m sorry Anamarie, i really am not trying to sound insensitive, but i fear your advice as an Aromatherapist is not scientifically sound. Not being mean, really, i just wouldn’t people to read your comment and be put off the product (which i whole-heartedly endorse!).

      Mineral oil is used in about 70% of skincare cosmetics on the market, and actually has no adverse affects on the skin.

      As I said, i’m not being obtuse, just don’t want people to be put off Bio-Oil, as it’s working great on my scars i have from an operation.

      Cheers.

    ok from reading everyone comments ive finally brought a bottle of bio~oil for stretch marks (15,sep)ive been using the bio oil every since calculating 20 days and ive seen a slight change i will admit they are starting to lightn up at first they appeared as red whips now there starting to shade in with my skin tone {light brown} im a 19yrs old african american young woman who had a tremendous weight change within a year in a half i had gained unwanted weight and stretch marks but with a change in my diet with adding lots of water ,exerciseWALKING MORE THEN NORMAL OVER THE PAST YEAR,and bio oil twice a day im seeing a rapid change.
    my question to you all is does bio oil make stretch marks dissappear and if so how long?

  51. lesley 14 October 2009 at 1:31 am #

    I have a dark mark on my right leg that is visible to me but not to many unless you really look, i have had it about 2-3 yrs, it was a bruise, and has scarred me, i am aware of it when i wear skirts and i am quite upset about it, a lady i know who is dark skinned told me she used bio oil on her face as she had slight scaring and it had worked for her, so off i went to the chemist today and have now put some on, will put it on twice a day for the min off 3 months and see how i go, please please work.

  52. joanna 15 October 2009 at 5:58 am #

    hey used bio oil before i went on hoilday 2 and a half years ago barely had any skin problems but saw a improved difference. I had a baby a year ago i gained many many stretch marks, when i mean many i mean like if you were my friend you couldnt even lie to me and say that ther not bad. Anyway started using bio oil again and theres a marked improvement all the stretch marks on my stomach have gone the strecth marks on side have faded alot you can barely see them i am so pleased i have been using it again for nearly 2 weeks. I am going to continue for the next 3 months. Remember ppl its no over night soultion stretch mark dont come over night so how could they disappear in a day. P.s this product really will not work if you dont use it religiously i mean twice a day without fail. otherwise its pointless and alot of wasted money as we all know it aint cheap. P.s again, obviously its not a glove and one size does not fit all it is not gonna work for everyone but for any black medium tone people out there it works and any light skin black people who are also curious it works as my friend has been using it to.

  53. kukuwa 20 October 2009 at 1:53 am #

    I bought Bio oil for my sister and she started using it by mixing it with her daily lotion – cocoa butter. She just called me to tell me how radiant and smooth her skin is!! everyone is asking her about her secret. well, I started using it too, and I have seen the change too. It should be mixed with some lotion – Mango Butter from Body Works etc. It has not reduced my acne scars though. But I have not given up. Still using it. I love it!

  54. liza 1 November 2009 at 4:17 pm #

    do you think it’s already shipped here philippines ? and how much do you think it would cost ?

  55. Khris 3 November 2009 at 1:12 pm #

    I just started using this oil about 6 days ago, went to walmart to get my monthly dose of Neutrogena Toner, and saw it while looking for some hydrocortisone. I have had post acne marks on my back mostly all my life, i don’t wear reavealing clothing and I always wear jeans, I have had multiple peels done to reduce post acne marks on my back, chest and face and have to honestly say that in 6 days I have noticed more than I when I had my last glycolic peel!!!! What’s happening with me is since I have SO many marks the least noticeable marks have slightly faded already so the darker marks are more apparent instead of a cluster I actually have individual spots, my skin is evening it self out… I am SOOOOO excited!

  56. bioilove! 23 November 2009 at 12:03 am #

    I don’t know if any of you know what pityriasis rosea is!! anyways I got that a month ago.. I got left me with a lot of dark spots all over my body, especially my belly and thise! oh and my neck too!! it is really annoying, can’t wear revealing clothes anymore..
    well, I just started using bio oil about a 9 days ago, and can already freaken see the changes, some dark spots that were not so revealent at first are already cleared out, you can’t see them anymore, and the other ones are starting to get lighter and stuffs! so excited, can already see the difference in little use!
    my grandma used it after she had a brest sergury over 2 years ago. Now her brest is totally clear!! she used it for about 3 months and it’s already cleared!! wow, just wow!
    100% recommended!

  57. larraine 29 November 2009 at 7:54 am #

    ive been using bio oil for two months and i wasnt seeing a difference until last week i noticed the ugly scar on my face was twice as lighter!! its still ugly and bio oil may work but no one has months to wait around..its only fiftteen bucks at walgreens so why not try it out!!! and no one is payin me to say this either guyss

  60. melissa 12 January 2010 at 1:14 am #

    hi. im not put up to write this. im based in england. started using bio oil a year ago but only infrequently on elbows etc. found i couldnt afford to use much as big bottle here is £20. my 19year old daughter also started using it about 3mths ago. i noticed dark patches disappeared off her elbows. i am mixed race and she is very light skinned. i then started using it twice daily 3mths ago and i am very impressed now. looks like to me its got to be used more often on a daily basis. iv used it on my face for the last 6wks. dark marks i had on my face have all faded into an even youthful color. i use it under my make up. has cleared the dark stretch marks on my face. lightened it completely. i still have crumpled skin on my stomach but the dark horrible colour has gone. dont think it’l do anything for the state of my skin. had kids 19years ago. but even on stretch marks that old, it has faded it completely. the marks are still there but the colors gone and it looks so much better. ok..costs me a lot to use all the time but i now cannot do otherwise and i just scrimp to make sure i buy my bio oil. thank you bio oil x

  65. Taz Pate 22 April 2010 at 7:50 pm #

    originally purchased Bio Oil while touring in USA. I felt and experienced it to be the best Bio-oil I could ever bought. It was just magical that reduced my age lines and made my skin soft n beautiful just within period of 10 days. It gave me a natural and young feeling where ever i went people praised. It has been hard for them to believe that I have crossed my 60’s. It also reduced the pores on my face and I have not one bit of acne since I have started using. I am so thankful & so now on i can by this wonderful product UK my home. If you use before putting on your eye makeup it removes very easily at night. It enhances the glow and give a elasticity to the skin with no clogs on the pores.
    Unique eccentric product a boon in its own self. I cant live without it…

  66. vinay 28 April 2010 at 8:19 pm #

    I have a lot of old white scar tissue on my hand and legs when i used the bio oil almost all scar healed. Bio oil’s effect shows within a 21 days after use.

  67. melj 7 May 2010 at 8:05 pm #

    I have been using bio oil for a few months now on my face initially once daily and now morning and night as a moisturiser. I have extemely sensitive and dry skin that flares up at the whiff of chemicals. I also live in a harsh climate and spend a great deal of time outdoors. Like others I have found bio oil to be light and easily absorbed by my skin. I was recently given two vouchers for facials by two friends for my birthday. I was thrilled to be told by both beauticians that my skin was in fantastic condition – well hydrated, plump and really healthy. I thought the bio oil was good and my skin was benefitting from it but it was great to hear from two separate beauticians that they thought my skin was in great shape. I am loving this product and feel sorry for all those sillies out there who pay a fortune for expensive designer creams full of perfumes and additives. Go Bio Oil! I’m in my late 40’s but am being told I look a lot younger. I think at this stage of life we all really need this kind of hydration. Of course I still have wrinkles- this is not a wonder cure all for aging but it really does help with the condition of your skin.

  68. Jennifer 10 May 2010 at 4:29 pm #

    Hi everyone,
    I am a 60 year old women who has had 2 skin cancers removed from my nose. The last one was quite nasty and needed a lot o digging and a new flap of skin. When healed it left a very rough surface and also a quite distinct white square right in the middle of my nose. I have been using the oil for a couple of weeks and I can say quite honestly that it has improved. It may also be due to the massaging I am doing when I apply it twice a day also. I am a retired scientist and don’t even wear makeup so this is a genuine comment.

  69. Dzeny 9 June 2010 at 5:42 pm #

    So , i have read alot about this Bio-Oil..watched different reviews on youtube from ppl using it, starting to use it etc, etc… so i thought id give it a try, since i have a “stress – casued – break – out” – skin…. How ever, reading this blog kinda confused me, cos before this i was like VERY sure and excited about this product. BUt again, you can NEVER know until trying it.

    Anywayz, i bought the oil, got it like two days ago, so its a project in process now to see what will happen.

    I took a picture of my skin yesterday, so ill keep on taking them maybe every week or so, just to see the result =)))

    Lets hope it works as well as “MANY” say =))))))

    I decided to purchase Bio Oil because I saw it on the Dr Oz show and he recommended it. He said buy it! always have it! so I did. I had heard about it before and watched the commercials.
    When I realized it was for all skintypes and helps with uneven skintone I was sold. It was onsale today at Shoppers Drugmart so I bought abottle. I am going to stick with it for at least 3 months and see how it goes.

    SOMEONE JUST TELL ME DO IT WORK?

    • Ems 2 August 2010 at 6:47 am #

      YES! IT DOES WORK! but you need to keep using it for a long time to get the best benefit. iv been using it all this year non stop. that is twice a day all over for 7 months. it is expensive as i use it all over the body twice a day so i pay £20 per week as i go through a large bottle a week. BUT IT DOES WORK!!!

      • Ems 16 November 2010 at 9:49 pm #

        ps. down to £10 a week. amazon in UK are selling it the cheapest at under a tenner for 200ml bottle and thats what size i use about every week as i use it all over my body

  74. Shanee 23 September 2010 at 12:39 pm #

    Bio Oil does make your skin more supple and smooth, but it’s obviously very expensive. Also there’s that lingering doubt about it ingredients. Personally I would try other solutions first before resorting to using bio oil.

  75. Shelley 16 October 2010 at 7:42 pm #

    I used bio-oil on my face, neck and chest today as my skin was dry and especially flaky around my mouth. Some hours later, my neck started to itch. I thought I must have had a mosquito bite, but later i started to feel itchy on my chest. I have now red, itchy welts everywhere I applied the oil. Could be a coincidence, but I’m going to give the bio-oil a miss for a while!!!

    I use bio oil every night after cleansing. I think its brilliant, my skin is so soft and nearly not as puffy in the morning. The cold winter has set in and the heating is cranked up to max so its making a big difference to my skin. Also put it on my hands when they get really dry. x

    i have ugly scars on my legs caused by insect bites. to make it worse, i pick up on the scabs and it made my legs look even more horrible. now i have these dark marks and spots. god knows how long i haven’t been wearing skirts. i have been living with these scars all my life. nothing seems to work. does bio oil really work? can it reduce these scars? i’d really like to know and give it a try. help anyone?

    • Ems 16 November 2010 at 9:48 pm #

      yes yes and yes. it absolutely does work. does take time of continual use thought. thats what iv found. so its down to affording to keep using it. its absolutely worked and working for me. but you have to stick at using it day and night.

      • Ems 16 November 2010 at 9:48 pm #

    Does this work on wrinkles?

  83. abe yeh 12 March 2011 at 2:21 am #

    Bio oil claims to be able to treat acne and remove acne scars. It contains a number of beneficial plant based oils and nutrients, but these beneficial ingredients are in a base of Paraffinum Liquidum, which is another name for mineral oil. Mineral oil is a petro-chemical derivative and is harmful to the skin. Putting mineral oil on your skin is like wrapping it in plastic wrap. The skin is not able to absorb nutrients and it can’t detoxify, which renders the beneficial ingredients ineffective and results in premature aging. Several other unpronounceable ingredients in Bio oil are known allergens and respiratory, skin and eye irritants. It also contains BHT, which may cause cancer, reproductive defects, and is harmful if swallowed. Customer reviews have been mixed. Some said the product improved their acne and some said it irritated there skin and made their acne worse

    i’ve used bio oil for several years. i had some burns several years ago and i was told that they would scar me for life. I am over 50 and my skin heals well but it is not young skin any more. Bio Oil has worked and the scars are almost gone….it takes time, but it does work.

    I have been using bio oil for a week and all of the dark patches of pigmentation on my face are fading rapidly and i have only been using it once a day. I have tried so many things to even out the skin tone on my face and this is the first thing that has worked. I am a bit concerned about the mineral oil but it is giving me results on marks i have had since i was a teenager from growing up in Australia, straight after i wash may face it appears so even especially on my cheek areas, very fresh and clear faced. It is kind of crazy how much i spent on whole ranges to rid my face of these dark areas. Now i basically use a lancome cleanser and bio oil. I am a guy and would use tinted moisturisers to even out my skin but hated the heavy feeling on my skin, now i put nothing on my face except a couple of drops of bio oil and my complexion looks super clear. I will alternate and use an spf oil free moisturiser if i am going out it the sun. Has anyone had similar results on the face?

  87. annie 27 June 2011 at 12:38 pm #

    i also using bio-oil regularly since a week ago even i’ve bought it since last year. i stop using it after it caused my face got pimples…i have oilly face and it maybe because i put it too much. according to pharmacies, i need to used for minimum 6 mths to heal the acne scar on my face..so i’ll give updates after 6 mths yeah…

    • kerry 15 November 2012 at 2:43 am #

      annie, myself and my daughter found that when we first started using it, our faces broke out in pimples. we carried on and that settled and stopped and the skin became smooth and clear. i also found my knees and elbows started peeling. i carried on using it and then new skin was under without dark colour. so we stuck it out past that stage. im now on it 2 years daily use x

  88. Liza Marie 18 July 2011 at 9:56 am #

    ive been using it for month’s personally i think it’s all hype …i do not see any difference mederma worked better on my scar and this stuff clogs your pores on your fae

    Sheila From Ghana, anytime i used this product i become darker, i want to know why,
    and the orgin of this product.
    thanks

    • kerry 15 November 2012 at 2:41 am #

      gosh! wonder why? but then you live in a tropical country, so you would get darker. i knew someone in the caribbean who would rub baby oil and lie out in the sun and get even darker, she’s a black girl. dont know what to reply to you. maybe you should spend less time out of the sun? bio oil for me takes pigmentation marks away, if you are dark skinned eg like me mixed race, we suffer from pigmentation problems, bio oil has smoothened my complexion and taken away all dark patches off knees, elbows, face, everywhere. but then i live in England and we dont even have much of a summer here..lol

    I fail to see how something (purcellin oil), that is intended to be a nature-exact copy of an animal product (preen gland oil of the waterfowl), can so easily be embraced by vegans as a vegetable product.
    Does this mean that there is a market amongst vegans for nature exact beef or chicken as long as it is synthesised from vegetable components?

  93. In America alone, an estimated 17-28 million people suffer from Acne, with around 750,000 people suffering intense inflammation…So why is it so hard to find a solution that actually works? After all, there has been so much dermatological research into acne and skin inflammation, so why is there so many products out there that still get it wrong or simply make the acne worse? The truth is, up until now acne medication have been too squarely focused on the treatment and not the prevention. This is typical of most medications and certainly nothing new. But as an acne sufferer, you know as well as I do that treating acne is a battle in itself and you’d much rather have a prevention first…and then worry about the treatment of the existing acne secondly right? After all, what is the point in trying to fix a leaking tap with a bucket and mop when you could just call out a plumber and have the pipe replaced? Go through the link below and check out how you can prevent another acne problem before you spendinf thousands of dollars to cure your current problem.

    I have dark pigmentation above my upper lip and on my chin. Would bio oil help this problem? Thanks

    • kerry 15 November 2012 at 2:37 am #

      yes it does. but its not something you use for 2 weeks. you got to keep on using it daily and just keep on after its gone. its taken my dark marks off. but bear in mind i am still using it daily 2 years on. so yes, it does work on darker skin and it does take some weeks and they do go, but in my case i have carried on using it daily 2 years on

  101. Nosheen 20 March 2012 at 1:06 am #

    I have dark skin color around my mouth, would bio oil help this problem?

      hey! 2 years on and im still using my bio oil all over my body and face. has cleared my skin and removed the dark colour from my stretch marks which were 19years old from my last baby. it works! i can vouch. you just have to keep using it. i get mine cheap online in UK. but i dont care that it costs me, i have to have my bio oil. it definitely works! you just got to use it and keep using it. im just a normal customer of the general public who buys it and has used it 2years. its brilliant and it works!

  104. Cherelle 25 April 2012 at 11:14 am #

    Hi I suffered with bad eczema when I was a baby but I’m now 23 and it seems to be coming back :-( It seems to have made my neck, feet and fingers a little darker. I’ve just started using bio oil and hopefully it will return my complexion back to normal because my confidence is at an all time low :-(

  105. etwo 3 May 2012 at 10:24 pm #

    I’m loving bio oil,I formed a habit of mixing it with my. Body lotion.my skin looks even and is very soft. It works for me n I have faith in it. I always tell my friends that unless u believe that the product wil work for u,don’t buy it.

    • kerry 15 November 2012 at 2:34 am #

      lol. when i first started – i didnt believe, i was just hoping. i was clutching at anything, looking for anything that would work. so i didnt believe at first that it would. but it worked !

    You may want to hide the tops of your thighs or stretch marks on your belly.
    Retro bathing suits are great costumes and can easily flatter any female body type.

    Other women might simply be deciding on the procedure after losing a major amount of weight, in hopes of achieving firm and perky breasts to go with
    a now-firm and now-perky body.

    • kerry 15 November 2012 at 2:31 am #

      iv left good reviews. iv used bio oil for about 2 years now. i get it on amazon at half the shop price. i use it all over my body and my face both under make up in the day and at night. my daughter age 22 uses it. we did find at first we broke out on our face but we persisted. elbows and knees started peeling. we carried on using it. and then the new skin below was clear and all dark patches gone. i use it daily always. my face is flawless at age 46, all marks gone. im mixed race so i easily get dark marks. i have none. stretchmarks on tummy – it takes the colour away. you dont lose your stretch marks but the colour over time disappears and scarring is smoother. i could not live withoutt my bio oil. i get the 200ml size and i buy 5 bottles at a time off amazon. i live in UK and on amazon its half the price for the 200ml bottle than in the shops. i mean it – i could not live without my bio oil. for me its a necessity. its part of my daily life and i will carry on using it permanently x

    bio oil has to be one of my most favorite products. I have gone up and down in weight over my years dramatically as well as being pregnant and I am lucky enough to not have any stretch marks I’ve used this bio oil on my skin for years. My son also had a tumble and required some stitches leaving a massive scar on his head, a year and a half later it is hardly noticeable thank goodness. I have had friends that have tried it and weren’t happy though I think they were expecting some miraculous cure that with in a month would make there scars and marks disappear, which no its not a magic cream if that’s what your expectations are too you most likely will be let down, and I’m doubtful that any cream exists that you will get those results but for sure guaranteed there will be a noticeable result of faded and blended in if used over months at a time plus it just is a really beautiful product to use, even with in a week you will noticed softer skin. It is a little pricey butyou really only use a little so it is very efficient, plus I have noticed in the last year there seems to be a cheaper brand I think called regene oil it is quite a bit cheaper personally having tried it as I’ve always been happy with bio oil and don’t mind the price as I’m a such a fan but give it a go.
