What's on the box
Bio-Oil Skincare Oil helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. The clinically proven formulation is a combination of plant extracts and vitamins suspended in an oil base that work together to help improve the skins texture and increase its elasticity. Bio-Oil Skincare Oil’s formulation combines a blend of Vitamins A and E, plant extracts and a breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil, which reduces the thickness of the formulation and makes it easily absorbed.
First impressions of the Bio-Oil Skincare Oil
"Good quality packaging and easy to apply and get out of the bottle."
"Sleek packaging, although I was surprised to find the product just pours from a hole. This made application quite tricky. The product is very runny and, therefore, difficult to apply without dripping. It rubs into the skin well."
"The Bio-Oil packaging is clean and clear and I like that you can see the oil inside the tube. I like that this oil can be used all over the body and it feels light enough to use it anywhere, whether it's for scars and and stretch marks or just on dry areas it works well. The oil is easy to rub in and you can be quite liberal with your application and it still absorbs into the skin quite quickly. It has a very slight, pleasant scent and doesn't leave the skin feeling too oily. For [the price] you get quite a large amount, though you can also purchase in smaller quantities if you just want to try this product out or use it on a certain area."
Did you see any noticeable improvements to your scar and/or stretch marks?
"Yes, the stretch marks on my side and stomach faded." - Amanda
"Yes it did. I think Bio-Oil is really effective and does reduce the appearance of stretch marks and other marks on the skin. I have also previously used Bio-Oil on my face for mild acne scarring, and found it helped to create a more even texture on the surface of my skin."
"None that I can see, however, my skin felt softer."
Would you recommend Bio-Oil Skincare Oil?
Yes - I love the fragrance and consistency of this product. This product made my scars fade and I would, therefore, recommend.
The application process was difficult and the product drips. With it being an oil, I worry about clothing being damaged.
I would recommend Bio-Oil. It's a mild and light oil but I do think its very effective. I think it's also a nice product to use in place of a moisturiser and it feels light and gentle enough to use daily.
Our review panel was impressed by how quickly and effectively Bio-Oil reduced the appearance of stretch marks and other marks on the skin. The oil absorbed into skin quickly so could be used as part of a daily routine although all of our testers felt the packaging could be improved to make application easier.
