Most Helpful Positive Review Wow, its actually working!
I am 20 years old, and have had very severe acne scarring. I go to the dermatologist, and have everything from Retina, Tazorac, special cleansers, and sulfar-based lotions (for those of you familiar with dermatologist products). I was so desperate to get rid of my scarring, that I decided to try this to even my skin tone and lighten my scars. WOW! Im only on DAY 4, and my scars are already 35% better! Everyone around me, after DAY 2, started complimenting me on how good my skin looked! (and I wasnt wearing any makeup)
The routine I started:(NIGHTLY, after evening cleanse)
I get a facecloth and soak it under hot water. I ring out the excess water, then place the towel on my face to open my pores. I quickly pat my face dry with a seperate towel, and then apply the oil generously. I resoak the towel in steaming hot water, squeeze out all the excess water again, and place it on my face (now that the oil is on) and let it steam my face and open my pores to let the oil seep into my skin. When the towel has lost its heat, I do this a second time. Then, I leave my skin AS IS. Let it dry naturally, so that as my pores close up and any leftover oil on the surface remains on the surface or closes into my pores.
Most Helpful Critical Review Disappointing! Yikes! Horrible Rash, so disappointed.
I read many reviews and was so disappointed. Used on my legs for age spots from sun damage and also stretch marks on my stomach from pregnancy. The first 3 days was fine, smell was a little strong for me but I was determined to use this 2 times a day and see awesome results like everyone seems to be saying. Well about the 4th day I noticed a rash on my stomach and 5th day noticed it spread brown on the front of my legs and all the way down to feet. Rash also spread around to back of legs and back of knees, & HOLY COW !!!! I had no idea what it was and it kept getting worse and itchy and spreading. The only thing different I could figure out was the oil, and the rash is only in the spots where I applied the oil. I thought... huh, no way! Well, upon further reviews I found a huge group of people describing red itchy bumps that appeared after a few days of use also. So user beware, try on a patch of skin for 4 days or so and see how your skin reacts to the oil. So disappointed people didn't even comment on some of these major sites about some negative things. So please test before using on a large area, especially since I normally never have sensitive or problem skin. Have not used in about 4 days and the rash is still really red, bumpy and spreading, hoping it goes away quickly.
Reviewed by 732 customers Honestly my holy grail product
Nicole from Phoenix, AZ
I keep seeing skincare specialists say that this product is more of a placebo effect and doesn't work, but I disagree! I spent about 2 months trying out a super gentle, expensive skincare routine and my skin looked worse! When I use Bio oil, my skin looks it's absolute BEST! I don't know what it is, since apparently this isn't supposed to be a scientifically "good" product, but it makes my skin look clear, soft, small pores, etc. all that good stuff!
I would buy this again

Just a little goes a long way. I use it twice a day on my face and neck.
Nancy D from Richland, WA
I tried Bio Oil after Derma-Needling was done on my face using Hyaluronic Acid 70% (diluted w/ distilled water 1:3) the collagen peptides while good absorbed too quickly. I put several drops in a circular motion on my cheeks & nose, and repeated on forehead & chin & above lips. It went on smoothly, calmed my irritated skin almost immediately and best of all a thin layer of the Bio Oil lasted a long time. If it helped my angry skin, I'm going to add it to my daily ritual regularly.
love this product
Mone from carson ca
i would use this product twice a day just like it says on the bottle. I loved the product it was moisturizing and started to cleared up my acne. Im buying another bottle!
Vee from Colorado
I love this stuff it's the only oil I've used (and actually liked) that doesn't eat away at my spray tan/self tanner. Also makes my skin so soft! one thing I hate about oil is how it make my skin feel after, but this stuff soaks in and doesn't leave me sticky! The medium size bottle lasted me so long and I can mix it in with my other body lotion too!
Emma from Wichita
I was a little skeptical at first, but now this oil is one of my essentials! I have sensitive skin on my legs, and this helps a ton with the itchiness and irritation.
Great for skin!
Jbchik from Fort Lauderdale, FL
Great product l. Use it on my arms and chest. Keeps hydrated and cleared up imperfections.
Great for tattoos
Kate from Portland, OR
I was using this on stretch marks and decided to try it on a tattoo that was healing rough. It seemed to save the color and minimize the scarring.
best skincare oil!
Sleepypup from San Jacinto, CA.
I love how well it melts into my skin. It's lightly scented. Staple product.
Briana M from Wylie Tx
I've used this product for 5 years for pregnancy stretch marks and wrinkles on my face and I love it, wouldn't trust another product to give results like these. You do have to use it once or twice daily for long period of time to see results but it's worth it.
Bisabolol is an allergen for some people just be aware
Ccdevee from Everett
Great product just know that if you are sensitive to WOOL or have ever reacted to anything with Bisabolol in it (like Aquaphor) this isn't the product for you. It's fine otherwise. Just read the label people.
I would purchase this item again.
Wonder Woman. from Lebanon, PA
I love it. And it smells fabulous.
Good for dry itchy skin
Furikake from WA
It works great for my dry skin. I use it after lotion when my body is extra itchy or flaky. Compared to other body oils it doesn't let my back break out, while also providing an extra moisture barrier.
Smells good and is nourishing for the skin
Taliaaa from New York, NY
It is too early for me to decide if this product actually works to help reduce the visibility of stretch marks. I read that you are supposed to use this product twice a day, for 3 months. I'm only at the 2 week mark but so far the oil absorbs into my skin and smells nice.
Cant stop using!
Melibo0 from Sacramento CA
I love this helped with my stretchers and now with acne scars! Its been 8 years since this has been my number one thing to use as body oil.
esme from chicago
THIS DEFINITELY WORKS!! I was skeptical at first but it definitely changed my mind!. I started to develop stretch marks, first started white (which I didnt mind), but when they started turning red I knew I had to do something about it. In just 2 weeks of using product, every day twice a day, I noticed a change in their appearance. I will definitely recommend this product!. Life changer!
Belly stretch marks visibly lighter with 3 days of use.
Blair from Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Can't speak of this product for long term use. But it noticeably has lightened my belly stretch marks after 3 days of use. My recommendation. Do not use on your face if you have oily skin. I have PCOS and I am prone to acne and oily skin. I use directly after getting out of the shower/ bathtub on my skin while it is still warm from the water; may or may not be science behind it. But that's how I have used it. Rub into skin until it has absorbed. It has a pleasant fragrance. And it can be used in other areas, not just on stretch marks. < 3
GOOD FOR BODY USAGE
Liyah from North Carolina
I want to start off by saying I have Dry to Very dry skin, and I'm a person of a darker skin complexion. I have struggled with acne scars for a while and what I didn't know was it had mineral oil in it and your not really supposed to put that on your face. I didn't really notice a huge change with my acne scars when using this. But I started using it on my body and it had helped with the darker places like inner thighs, and some stretch marks. It doesn't give super fast results but after a while it gives slight results.
I definitely would buy this product again
Qari from North Kansas City, MO
I use this product twice a day in my skin care routine. I really have seen improvements in my skin and my dark marks have began to fade away. I love it! Can't wait to see more improvement over time.
Carolyn from Orlando
I use it for my stretch marks on my stomach. I use it once in the morning and once at night. Based off the reviews I see everyone uses it for different purposes and everyone's body is different. For me it has diminished my stretch marks and cellulite even I think. I really see a difference and feel really good when I look in the mirror. I am light skinned and my stretch marks were not severe but noticeable. This was the case for me but I have seen a great difference and it's permanent. I used this many years ago and wasn't consistent but it did the job so I stopped. This time around I have been consistent and I'm still seeing results. Definitely would recommend.
Definite difference in reducing scar visibility quickly
Janice from Fort Myers
Full knee replacement scar visibly reduced after using this product wcc
Would not recommend for acne prone skin
KLO from N/A
After the first day of using this oil, I could see an immediate change in my skin. It definitely looked more clear and glowy. BUT, by the third day, every time I put it on my face it started feeling extremely heavy on my face and eventually broke me out. Also, there is fragrance to it which I believe was probably the cause to irritating my acne.
Good but... not for face?
Sierra from Maryland
Why would people put this on their face? It has mineral oil in it that's a hard no for any face. Anyway, I purchased this on sale a few months ago for my scars where I had 2 moles removed on my calf. At first until they healed I did Vasoline like they said to do. But I wanted to try something more and I had always heard this stuff was great. I definitely like it but I'm curious to see how they will look when this bottle is completely empty. For now I'm just hoping for the best because they are 2 nasty looking scars right by my tattoo which sucks. I also put this on my tattoo that is 10 years old just the brighten it up.
Olivia from South Carolina
I used this on my scares and stretch marks for 7 months and did not see any difference at all. It is moisturizing and smells fine but over all just extremely greasy. I was really hoping it would work on my fresh stretch marks but it did not.
Babs from Florida
Why would you put mineral oil on your face?? Not good!!
