    It's not as effective on darker skin. I say you are better off with using vitamin E oil. its a little cheaper and just as effective on marks.

    I bought the bio-oil last weekend and have been applying 2-3 times daily for 5 days now. I have a few age spots on my hands that bothered me quite a bit and i'm actually amazed that they have faded and are quite lighter!! I also apply it to my neck since I have a few wrinkles there that actually make me very self concious..and they appear to be less pronounced (and I have been trying all kinds of neck creams!) so I like this oil, it smells good, my skin rapidly absorbs it and the price is very good!! Wal-Mart sells it for $11.95 here!! It,s all natural too and hydrates my skin well!

    PLEASE NOTE: My review is for the use of Bio-oil on your face to improve complexion and reduce the appearance of scars.

    I have been suffering from the occasional breakout that would often leave a lasting impression on my face in the form of a scar/blemish. After trying several products to reduce the appearance of the blemishes/scars on my face, I turned to bio-oil because I read so many great reviews about the product.

    My experience:
    Bio-Oil is extremely oily and the first time I put it on my face, I made sure to follow all the instructions properly (massaging techniques, how much to use, etc) and I noticed that it took a really long time for my skin to absorb the oil! So I went to sleep with it on my face and by morning, I woke up with really soft and supple skin! However, after a few more tries, I found that I was breaking out way too much so I completely stopped using it.

    The pros:
    -Skin really is soft and supple the next day. Great for those with dry skin

    The cons:
    -Inadequate instructions on how to properly use the product. For example, it states that it should be used twice a day, I don't see a problem with using it at nighttime before bed but what should I do in the morning? Should I use it before I moisturize and put on makeup? Should I even moisturize? I tried various ways to use it such as go without moisturizer and just put make up over the bio-oil product - that did not work out too well as my foundation ended up looking really blotchy/funny. I tried to use it under my moisturizer and that just made my face really oily.

    -Further elevated my breakout problems. I literally had 5-6 a day during the week or so I tried to use it on my face.

    The bottom line: It probably is great for other stretch marks on various parts of your body, but if you have normal-combination skin, I'd be skeptical about trying it on your face.

    Six months I ago I accidentally knocked down a pot of boiling water in my kitchen and scaled my hand. Initially, I have heard that Bio-Oil is good for stretch marks and later learned that it also works on scars and wrinkles. Since the accident left a really large and unsightly scar on my right hand, I got myself a bottle. I also did some research to find if the product really works. I found this site ( www.bio-oil-review.com ) and learned that the person hosting the site is testing the product and giving her feedback once a month. When I looked at the before and after photos, I was pleasantly surprised. Go to www.bio-oil-review.com and see for yourself. I've been using it for three days now and it gives me hope that my scar will eventually fade. So far I haven't seen any changes but it does keep my hands soft and moist all day long. I agree with the previous posts - you must discipline yourself and apply the oil twice a day for a minimum of three months to see some results. I hope I can see mine really soon.

    Overall, I am pleased with this product but at $18.99 I expected it to do a little more than what it did. Don't get me wrong I did see results as far as lightening ans smoothing scars and marks but for $20 I expected them to be gone!! I did not do any research on the clinical trials until after I'd already purchased and used quite a bit if the product. I was a tad discouraged to find out that the clinical trials were done on Caucasian women and no women of color. Of course, I knew that there results would not be my results. This can be used as a bath oil, I even used it in my face and it disn't clog my pores, imagine that... an oil that didn't clog pores!! I am very pleased with this purchased, just not to excited about the price. I would recommend it, but doubt that I'll be buying it any time in the near future.

    I love that this bottle has multiple uses.
    For the most part, I bought it to even out my skin tone (redness, and pigmentation), and to help with newer acne scars. You need to use this twice a day, for a minimum of 3 months to really start seeing proper results. And so, just like the other reviewer said, it is really a discipline thing. You need to massage it according to some of the instructions found in the pamphalet, and remember to be gentle.

    I personally didn't see much in the redness and pigmentation category, but it did help to visually decrease the scars.

    A 60ml bottle was 13.99 when I bought it at SDM, but you can frequently find it on sale for about $10.

    I was surprised that bio-oil works. It was recommended by a friend (whose doctor had recommended). It definitely reduces the appearance of fine lines and spots. Note that you do need to use it twice daily. You use such a small amount each time, it is a discipline issue, not economic.
