How to Use
Rated 4.4 out of 5 stars
If you are looking for a light or fast-absorbing moisturizer, this is NOT for you. But if you have dry spots and some time to let the gel absorb, it's amazing!! The first ingredient is mineral oil and you can definitely feel it.
I originally bought this hoping to moisturize my whole body but I realized it would be way too greasy. Instead, I use it all over my feet. My soles have been dry and flaky due to some recent life changes such as moving to a drier climate. I apply the Bio-Oil Gel after I shower. While waiting for it to absorb, I moisturize the rest of my body with a different moisturizer. It takes about 20-30 minutes for it to fully absorb on me but I almost never wait until it's fully absorbed - maybe 15 minutes tops before I start walking around. Despite that, it's been about a week since I started this routine and my feet are pretty much back to normal. I tried some other lotions and body butters before this, but they did not improve my soles. It comes in a small tub, but a little goes a long way.
The tub came with some product outside the container, around the lid behind the pull-off ring. Not a huge deal and implies a plus since it means they fill it to the absolute brim, but is a bit messy.
I love the gel! Absorbs and sinks in beautifully. I can even use it on my face which I couldn't with the liquid as it would slip around everywhere and would end up in my eyes. my skin is reactive to everything and will often break out in blisters, but this is powerfully moisturizing without being thick.works wonderful even in the summer heat doesn't melt and get gloopy and had been awesome rescuing my skin from lifeguarding and teaching swim lessons in the pool. also great in winter.
now the bad, the awful. oh gosh this packaging is terrible. it is a plastic pop top with a small bendable plastic bit connecting the top to the container. and when I say pop top, this pops...open anytime something touches it. it is nearly impossible to close correctly. while the gel product is typically way less messy than the liquid, if the packaging doesn't close it makes a mess. not helpful when I want to bring it anywhere especially to the pool. amazingly the product doesn't melt when in the sun or when I've left it in the car but I'm still trying to get the stain out of a shirt when it popped open in the car and leaked out.
still might reccomend product highly but makes use you have another container to put it in. I'm tempted not to buy it again for this reason.needs to be in a solid container with a screw on cap or an airless pump.

Found a product that actually healed my dry cracked skin. Perfect for elbows, knees, feet. Can be used everywhere and it works!
Olivia from Alabama
Tried this on a whim and I will never go back! This has changed my skin for the better. I have horribly dry skin, just no natural moisture and severe KP. This gel after the shower is all I need for days on end. No reapplication necessary. Wish it came in a larger container. I love it regardless of the size!
Marie from NJ
I put this on right after I shower and it sinks right in and your skin stays feeling silky for a day or two. I would probably use again but with another lotion.
JerkyLeg from Oregon
I recently had leg surgery and have had my leg in a cast and now boot for over a few month. Once I seen my leg I about died, it looked like jerky. I figured it would take months for me to be able to get any hydration back in it. I used bio oil once so far and am already seeing huge results and am buying another jar. I don't ever do reviews but this stuff is amazing!
Everythingcreative__ from Philadelphia
I must say this plus my Neutrogena gel body lotion is a must have !! I plus this on my dry/stretch mark areas first and apply my gel lotion on top over my whole body - must have
Mel from Ohio
this might work for less dry skin, but it does not work for my very dry skin. after a few hours my skin is flaky, dry, and itchy. otherwise it has a nice formula and is an interesting gel to oil formulation, so it might be worth trying if your skin isn't very dry and you don't like heavy creams
Liv from Alabama
I have had dry skin my whole life, no matter what I used it never made a single difference. I just happened to pick this up on a whim and let me tell you.. I'll never go back. A little goes a long way. Just wish they made it in a bigger tub.

keeps my dry skin moisturized and keeps it from getting flakey.
Shelby from USA
I thought I could use this as a replacement for my dry patches that I'd typically use a steroid cream or aquaphor on. This gel has a much better texture than what I typically use but it is not nearly as effective. This would be great for someone with "normal" skin but if you have very dry skin like me then don't bother.
Pam from Las Vegas
I never write reviews, but I wish I could thank the gal who sold it to me. My hands were dry, chapped, and had open cuts from the dry weather. This not only healed my hands but has made them look younger. I use it right below my brow line, too. I also experience major adversity with most product's smells, but this is just light enough. My 3 year old enjoys it on his hands as well!
amanda from new orleans, la
I use this on my face at night before bed and when I wake up it is soooooooo soft!!!! obsessed with this stuff and it doesn't make me break out
Ash from Atlanta
I never write reviews but do it. I'm 3 months postpartum and my skin had been incredibly dry. Nothing works. Dry dry! So far those seems to get the job done!
Calgirl1 from Los Angeles
Love this product. Will use it again and again.
Cactuskicker from Ny
I bought this on a whim, my feet Have been super dry & my toes were itchy & it was driving me crazy. I tried this & my toes felt instantly better, soothed. They stayed moisturized for days after. Works so well. Great for night after shower or bath. It's a sick oily gel you can rub it in
But I like to leave a good amount on skin & cover with socks. Great for hands, elbows, knees & feet anywhere you're super dry.

I am like some others I've read on here where I have probably every single, high-end or not, product made for dry skin (on my face). Lately, my skin has been extra red and sensitive and I've been on the hunt for a new skincare routine. This just firmly planted itself there! I've had to change my face wash, moisturizers, serums, toners- you name it! I got this and I put it on at night since I wasn't sure at first how oily it might make my skin look (by the way, it really doesn't leave a greasy, oily look, just nicely hydrated). This in combination with the new face wash and couple of other products I've come across have been the rescue I needed. I'm no longer using anything I used to but my skin is going back to being like new again. I don't know if I'll ever not have skin like the Sahara if I ignore it for a day, but this routine of mine is promising and this gel feels SO good on my sensitive skin! This will never not be in my kit ever again.

This worked really well for my really dry spots! But know in advance this is not like a moisturizing cream this has a texture similar to Vaseline. It didn't cause me any breakouts or irritate my skin. Don't love the packaging but 100% does the job!

Alli from AL, USA
I'm from AL and I recently went to Az and NM for a trip to work on houses. This stuff saved my dry, overworked feet! I had everyone with me asking to use it. I layered my body with it every night and it saved my already dry skin!!
Lolo from North Cali
Omg I love this product! I've tired there other product but was okay but this one is one of my favorite products. I mostly use it for my cubby thighs cause it helps on not rubbing so much but it glides plus it moisturize 😍and that's what I've been looking for 💁🏽♀️. The reason I'm giving a four star is because we need a bigger bottle. I used like five already in this year so we need more product 🥲.
refrigeratedbananas from Chicago, IL
I've used so many different creams, lotions and oils for my dry skin. This product keeps my skin moisturized and soft for over 24 hrs and has a better texture than oils. I also like the mild exfoliants, helps reduces keratosis pilaris. It is a bit expensive for the amount you get, but I will purchase again.
Abby from Washington
I love the actual product. At first I thought I had bought just colored Vaseline however it is a dry skin Miracle. You don't need very much and it's very effective. I would say the sent smells like when you walk into the lush bath bomb store. However I continue to find tiny plastic particles in my product, sometimes it scratches my face and it's very annoying simply because I want to continue to use it.
Buster from Minneapolis, MN
Product is too greasy and don't like the smell
Robin from Austin, Tx
I discovered BioOil during pregnancy and loved the stuff, but didn't always want to put oil that leaves marks on clothing if you get dressed right after applying. Especially with all the satin trends right now. Good alternative and not as greasy. Pleasant mild scent that doesn't overwhelm. Leaves you buttery soft.
Hodge from Lancaster
Please never discontinue this.

Out of shower, lubricate skin.
