Works very well!!

I have only been using bio oil for a number of days now and I'm noticing an improvement already. I had keyhole surgery to remove my appendix and the scar under my belly button from my surgery is thinck and indented into my skin and bio oil has differently helped already with the appeared of that scar Show details

Brilliant stuff

As an ex self harmer I am covered in scars and I have used bio oil on and off for years and it really does work, I have noticed a big improvement in my old scars and some of them are quite deep, it may seem a bit expensive but you don't need to use much of it and it should last quite a while, Show details

Don’t use on sensitive skin

I used Bio Oil on my hands for a month and got great results, then to my horror I used it on my dry legs that’s where the problems began, at first there was a slight itch which after 3 more days use suddenly bloomed into full blown dermatitis, the rash was terrible plus my legs swelled to an alarming size so I went to my doctor who told me to stop using in his words this dangerous treatment after two weeks of medication my legs finally healed. My mistake was thinking it was ok for my hands it was safe to use elsewhere so if you have sensitive dry skin on your legs stay away from this product Show details

Do not use if you suffer cystic acne

Despite information advising otherwise, this is not non comedogenic. Vitamin E alone is not good for cystic acne. It's an extremely difficult condition made worse by statements that do not apply to this terrible skin problem. It may work on scars, but avoid the face at all costs of you are also afflicted with this condition.

This Is amazing I never use to use it, It is excellent. I only noticed how small amount you need to put on at once

I did not have any reactions to it, It had been amazing It helped with my skin as I never use to put anything on it great to use after a shower or a bath and before you go to bed and when you wake up. Show details

I had a bottle on hand from about 5 years ago and my skin was getting a lot of sunspots coming up that were scabby and flaky since being on immune suppressants. Plus I had a suspicious looking raised angry-looking sore on my hand for 8 months that wouldn't heal. I used the oil 3 times so far and the raised sore is nearly flat and the other spots are healing and are just pale pink skin where they had been. I'm amazed at how much it's helped. Show details

Greasy feel

Actually going to stop using this after 7 years, I stayed at a rellys place for a week and used her face lotion and noticed a difference. All bio did was give me a greasy face Show details

It has not changed the colour of the scar or skin tissue after using for 1 year

I am 73 and had 3 ulcers on my leg. I used bio oil after the ulcers healed because they left a dark mark on my leg. I used it constantly morning, noon and night for 1 year and used 2 bottles. In that time I may have missed the middle of the day or maybe one or 2 nights during that time. The scar still looks the same and the colour has not changed. It has not made any difference to the damage on my skin. I tried so hard to make this work but for me it did not make a difference. I am thinking maybe baby oil may have worked the same. I like to be fair in my evaluation of the product but really it made no difference and I am sorry it did not work after so much effort.

Remarkable product!

I had an altercation with a neighbours dog who accidentally scratched my face quite deep! It happened Sunday night.
With Christmas season coming up I was absolutely devastated that this happened, so started putting this on the morning after.
I can see a marked difference already in only 4 days of using!
Really, really impressed! Show details

Burning reaction

Tried gel because I can't tolerate oil on my face. Advised to use after eyelid surgery by ophthalmic surgeon. Eyes puffed and sore within half hour. Have taken antihistamines in hope they may help with pain and reduce swelling. Show details

Can I mix bio oil dry skin gel and bio oil skincare oil


My bio oil is 5 years old. Could not find a use by date on bottle. I applied the oil to the scar on my knee following knee replacement 5 weeks ago. There is now a rash around some sections of the scar. Could the bio oil have caused the rash which is unchanged after 6 days. Sue


I just starting to put bio oil in November after thigh lift in August, I am wondering when is the scar will disappear thanks
