Less is More!
Have been using this product for all 3 pregnancies, found that it helped nourish the skin be reducing new stretch marks. Don't forget elbows and knees! I like to use just enough and add a barrier cream on top to lock it in. For me i don't recommend it on the face, my face got irritated.

I agree with the positive remarks on this product.
Cannot track any certain use, however have been using this for all the things they state. Had noticeably cleared up deep cuts on my son.
The ignorant person who says they try to emulate a gel is wrong, they don’t! Bio OIL. Grow a brain

Before and after picture 6weeks apart
These photos are just six weeks apart. I can’t recommend Bio oil enough. Amazing. Highly recommend. My scars are fading rapidly and have healed so fast.I also put bio oil in the bath for super soft skin . 5 star rating

Not a single stretch mark!
A friend of mine recommended I try this to moisturise after one too many late nights. I used it on my face for 3 days but stopped because I started to break out in acne so it wasn’t ideal for that. FYI I have combination/oily skin.
Started using the Bio oil again during pregnancy on my belly area from the beginning of the second trimester. Rather than put it on twice a day though as the instructions said, I only did it once, after showering because it was easier. I did break out on my belly but I persisted and kept using it and eventually the ...

It tries to be gel, but fails miserably.
Bought this due to its Urea content and it's supposed 'Gel' consistency.
On initial inspection it looks kind of like gel until I dipped my finger in, and there was an entire layer of oil, so I pushed deeper and the 'gel' was just more oil, I don't know how something can look somewhat like gel but feel so very greasy.

Not a gel at all
Purchased the bio oil gel. It is just the oil in a jar no gel consistency AT ALL. Waste of money. Not A soothing Product at all. Not suited for sensitive skin either

I had a brown spot on forehead for years and it would get raised and crusty. I started using bio oil for my face, the brown spot disappeared and any redness/dryness around my nose disappeared.

I used bio oil a couple of years ago when it first came out, I had some really bad scars/scabs all over my legs from excessive itching.. brought bio oil and within 3-6 months they had gone. Really was a life saver and I currently use it while pregnant to prevent stretch marks around my tummy and haven't had any new marks. Great product!

Love bio oil - currently using roaccutane
I am currently on roacutane so you can imagine how dry and sensitive my skin is. I use this on my face at night time after my moisturiser. It really helps and I would recommend. I do struggle to find products that I can use on my sensitive and easily reactive skin and bio oil is a must!

if i could give no stars i would
within a hour of putting the bio oil gel for face!!! on my face i had a horrible reaction i now have sore skin around my eyes and cheeks, it says its safe for your face but i've read a lot of reviews saying the ingredients is bad for your face especially if you have sensitive skin and it was dry skin not open wounds or scars so for it to react this badly! I only had it on for an hour and my face felt hot and itchy i took it off and applied a cold compress but it stayed raised for days on day 3 now. not happy. i've taken piritol just in case its a allergy but my skin is still sore and hot to the touch.
will not be purchasing again.

Not much change
Applied it since a cut healed for 6 months and counting. I still have pretty obvious cut scar and it has not faded at all. Not sure this did anything
Purchased in July 2019 for $25.00.
No good for scars.
Have used for 3 months on a large new scar and it didn't change appearance at all. I may have well just dabbed water on it for the same result.

I started using Bio-oil, to help with surgical scars, about 3 weeks ago. Woke up this morning with large, itchy hives. Do not use if you have sensitive skin, or are prone to allergies.

The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
.I ran out of shave oil so tried whether bio oil would be OK. It was excellent and left my skin soft and pliable, even mores after I applied more bio oils an aftershave.I found the same good effects when I used the oil to shave my dick and balls, which can be a problematical area.
If you're skin is SENSITIVE & dry, dont use this!!!
2 days after using bio oil on my face I woke up to my face being red, swollen & burnt from the middle of my nose down. I had lumps on each side of my nose from the crease onto my cheek. It hurt so bad even applying a warm or cool cloth hurt. I applied moisturizer as much as possible all day for day 3 & on day 4 my skin looked like a snake does when shedding their skin!! Big patches were peeling off my face!! I'm on day 7 now & the peeling is almost gone but it's still sore. There are A LOT of chemicals in this stuff that cause damage. I have really dry skin & was looking for a solution. Bio oil made it so much worse. Be careful.

I love bio oil honestly its the best i got terrible stretch marks through pregnancy as i gained 60 kg and 12 weeks pp there already dissapearing, ive began using it all over my body and face and i have a glowing tan and even completion. Anyone who doesnt like bio oil probably has crap/too far damaged skin to begin with, there's not much on the market at this price and chemist available that works so im very happy.

Can't believe how great it is
Not only has it fixed my dry skin on my face it's also made my wrinkles dissapeared. I have received alot of compliments on my skin lately which is wonderful considering my skin is usually red and dry.
Purchased in September 2019 at Amcal.
The product is OK. It works but the results are super slow. I apply it like 3-4 times a day and I use ALOT of product in one day but still I only see the smallest results. I also leave it on my uneven skin tone overnight and I see the smallest results. I recommend this if you are patient. But I think this product is better than ALOT of products solt so I recommend this.

Best product that helped my dry upper arm skin
After trying many moisturisers for my upper arms near my biceps this is my saviour. I am petite and in my early 60s . As a result of menopause my skin had dried out even though I participate in gym classes the skin was sagging badly.
I noticed an immediate change and now use it morning and night and the results are fantastic. I can now wear sleeveless tops again with confidence.
