REVIEW : Bio-Oil


I have been using the Bio-Oil for a month now, 31 days to be precise. So, i thought today is the right time to write a review, even though as per the instructions, we need to use this for at least 3 months. Before i get into the review, let me tell you i have lot of stretch marks on my upper arms, side of my breasts as well as on both sides of my thighs and buttocks. So, obviously i started using this anti-stretch mark oil to get rid of these stretch marks or at least improve the appearance of them. Also i had too much of back-acne a year back, so those scars are still there on my upper arms and shoulder. So, i thought Bio-Oil might be helpful to reduce those scars.

Ingredients : Paraffinum Liquidum, Isopropyl Myristate, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Chamomile oil, Lavender oil, Calendula oil, Rosemary oil, Bisabolol etc.

What Bio-Oil claims about the Bio-Oil Skincare oil? : Bio-Oil is a specialist skincare product formulated to help improve the appearance of scars, stretch mark and uneven skin tone. Its unique formulation, which contains the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil, is also highly effective for ageing and dehydrated skin.

Bio-Oil skincare oil comes in a plastic bottle which is pinkish peach in color with a white cap. And the outer carton is made up of paper. The oil got a very sweet light fragrance, and its light-weight, if you massage well, 90% of the oil will absorb in the skin. However i had a few breakouts after applying this, so don’t know how long i will be able to use this. Also i use the oil once a day after bath, only on the affected areas. So if you use twice a day, one bottle will last a month i guess. It contains 60 ml of the product and costs INR Rs 450.

Sadly, i did not see any improvement so far. The stretch marks are there as it is also the scars are as it is, did not lighten or fade so far! Since its instructed that one should use the Bio-Oil at least for 3 months, i might buy another bottle and continue usage. But i don’t think this is going to be that effective as it claims to be. Once you have the stretch-marks, its difficult to get rid of those. Same goes for scars.

So, i might post another review next month if i happen to continue using this. Frankly, till now am not happy with this Bio-Oil skincare Oil, but lets give it another try.
