I've been using Bio-Oil for years and never thought I would end up writing a review about it until recently. I have previously only ever used it on stretch marks and small areas of my face to heal any redness or scarring. However, last week, I had a few dry patches around my nose and thought I would apply some Bio-Oil on it to fix the problem. Instead of only applying it on that area, I decided to put it all over my face to give my skin a bit of a boost. I've never applied it all over my face before as I don't like the thought of putting oil all over my skin when it is already quite oily but I went ahead anyway. I made sure to massage it in well and was surprised my face didn't look greasy afterwards. I wanted to see how well it worked alone, so other than cleansing and using my toner before, I didn't apply anything else to my skin. When I woke up the next morning, I was so surprised at how different my skin appeared to be. It was a lot clearer, radiant and all my blemishes had gone. This is the first time I've really noticed a significant difference over night when using a product. I couldn't believe how well it had worked in a matter of hours. I've continued to use it on my face morning and night since then and I am still seeing great improvements in my skin. I'm still allowing it to work its magic on its own but I will definitely be including it in my future routine from now on. I will just apply the Bio-Oil a little while before my moisturiser instead. This is one added step that I really won’t mind doing.

If you're not sure what Bio-Oil is, "it is a specialist skincare product that helps 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. Bio Oil is formulated with the following all-natural ingredients: Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Calendula Oil, Lavender Oil, Rosemary Oil and Chamomile Oil Bio Oil is a non-comedogenic (acnegenic), hypo-allergenic product that is suitable for use by individuals with sensitive skin."

I have very sensitive skin and one of the reasons I had never applied it to my face before, was my concern of it causing more spots and clogging up my pores. This wasn't the case and I really do think it would be great for all skin types. Mine can often be quite dry but I also get quite oily at times and it's done nothing but improve my skin.

Bio-Oil also comes in various sizes so if you haven't tried it before, then perhaps buy the smallest one. A little goes a long way and even the small one will last months and months. It's also a lot cheaper to buy offline at times or in cheaper stores such as Savers, rather than Boots.

I think everybody should have some Bio-Oil for all its great uses anyway. You can even add some to your bath to help with stretch marks, too. I can't recommend it enough but especially for anyone who has uneven skin tone and never thought they would be able to have 'perfect' skin. I've always had some problem or other with my skin and have hardly ever managed to keep it clear but since using this, it has been.

  1. how well does it work on stretch marks? when i was 15my legs grew really quickly and i was left with them, if only i had known about bio oil then :(

  2. Thanks for the review! I always see the commercials but have never seen a review. Might try this out.

  3. I swearby bio-oil for my face! Such a good beauty basic. It doesn't give me any breakouts either which is amazing considering it's essentially oil! haha

  4. Emma, I think it's one of the best things out there for stretch marks. You'll have to use it for a few months to notice any difference on them though but the appearance of them will improve after a while!

    Do try it if you can :)

    and Hattie, I swear by it too now!

  5. OH i used a whole bottle of that when I was pregnant, it's really good :)

  6. I always use bio-oil, it's amazing! It's definately the best thing available for strech marks.

  7. great review it is one product i have not tried yet ,i will buy some next time im at the store

    great review!

  8. I use it on razer rash!! I haven't had amazing results on scars but def agree about getting rid of red skin etc xx

  9. I used it religiously when I was pregnant - but I still got stretchmarks in the last couple of weeks :-(

    However - I heard about using it for acne scarring from a facialist, so I used it on my face. It was very mild and moisturising...but I didn't like the smell, so I switched to other products. Now that my skin has gone haywire, I've gone back to Bio-Oil - and am loving it so far too!

  10. I shall have to try it on razer rash then, Laura.
    Shame you still got stretch marks Ella. It does have quite an odd smell but worth putting up with!

  11. I love love love bio oil, and it really does help reduce stretch marks, even after using it a few times. However, I tried using it on my face and I ended up with very oily skin, but other than that, it's great! :)


  12. I heard bio-oil is really good.

  13. I love Bio oil..have used it past 2yrs..great review

  14. I adore Bio oil, so good for giving you an even skin tone and radiant glow.

    great for scarring too!

  15. I've been using bio oil on my face everyday for the last 4 year's! It's amazing

    1. It is, isn't it!? I'm still using it on a daily basis.

  16. I have it but only have been using it on my body. Once I noticed that one of the main ingredients is mineral oil (known to clog pores), I got a bit concerned.

  17. I havn't been using Bio-Oil long but i can see it's working already on my stretchmarks.
    It is working really well on the dry skin on my face, too. I will continue to use it regularly as it is making my skin look clear and healthy.

  18. this shit better done with tryng to look good....

  19. I have dark spots on my face by my lips & on my chin ; that counts as uneven skin tone right ? i hate having it .. i heard it works reallly well . so its worth a try huh ?

  34. Hello.
    I have something to inform everyone. Bio-Oil is potentially very dangerous.

    I have used Bio Oil for a couple of years and have found it to be the BEST skin product I have ever used. I know there is only so much a surface product can do in terms of scar/birthmark removal but it has really caused a large birthmark to VANISH without bleaching any of the surrounding skin. I even started buying this product for people I know because I believe it is that remarkable. However, I was looking to get some more cheaply online than in the high-street stores. So I had a look and read some other really great user-testimonies about the product and literally EVERYTHING on Google seemed to be great. ............Until I came across this EXTREMELY WORRYING, official analysis of Bio-Oil and its likelihood of causing cancer, developmental and reproductive toxicity and allergies and immunotoxidity. This is not a rival company trying to make the product look bad, like Rescue-Oil or anything that. This is a medical review of Bio-Oil and it is extremely worrying and to be honest would put me off buying the product ever again.

    This is the site and the review of Bio-Oil.

    Please be safe and informed when using products
