    This product claims to reduce the visibility of scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, aging skin, and dehydrated skin and it honestly works! I purchased this to try using it on the left over acne scars that I have on my face (I have A LOT of acne scars and they are over 10 years old). I'm self conscious about the scars so I wanted to try something to reduce the visibility of them if not eliminate them all together. I've been using the Bio-Oil for a couple of weeks now and I've seen a HUGE difference! It says you're supposed to use it twice a day for 3 months (I don't use it religiously) and I've noticed a huge difference in less then a month. The texture of my skin seems smoother and softer, and the scars are practically gone. Definitely worth the buy.

    As a few people have already mentioned, this product is great for quite a few things, including stretch marks (before and after), scars, and wrinkles, to name a few. I've personally been using it mainly for wrinkles and evening out my skin tone. My problem areas are early wrinkles on my forehead and uneven tone to my cheeks due to mild acne (no deep scars). I've had great luck with this product in both areas. I will admit that I feel naked if I don't put this product on before going out now as it really adds a liveliness to my pale complexion as well (how does it do that?!).

    The scars on my forehead were noticeably lighter within the first week of using the product, and with continued use, they have definitely diminished. My skin tone has gotten a lot more even, and my light scarring from acne has almost completely disappeared.

    The only problem I've had with this product is with applying it on my chin and nose area. I found that I did experience more breakouts than normal in those areas when I applied it there, but those areas are generally oily for me to begin with. This product is oil-based, but it is also easily absorbed, even in those problem areas, and once I stopped using the product in those areas, I experienced no more breakouts.

    I'd definitely give this one a try. It is a great all-over item, and if it doesn't work for one thing for you, it just might work for another.

    I absolutely adore this product. I have been using it since my first tri-mester and at the rate I am going, will be as big as a hosue by the end, with little or no signs or stretch marks.
    The only thing that it has not improved is old scar marks, but they are just stories to be told anyways.
    I wouldn't think of getting pregnant again with out this product by my side!

    I first discovered this product from a magazine. I had given birth to my first son and didn't do much for the stretchmarks as I didn't think they were that big of a problem or noticeable. I was using the Palmers Cocoa Butter for stretch marks and didn't see no results, but the Bio-Oil caught my attention since it was featured in the magazine and it claims to be good for many skin problems so I went looking for it at my local drugstore. I bought a bottle of the oil and used it for some time. You don't see results right away so the only thing you might like and that I liked was the light scent it has, and well that it's not greasy either even though it's oil, it absorbs quickly in to your skin.

    I didn't see no results after some time so it just fell out of routine and stopped using it and left my 2nd bottle practically full.

    I started using Bio-Oil again since I had the bottle in my bathroom and read some reviews on how it does work but it takes time to see results, and well yeah I still don't see any results on my stretchmarks but I had uneven skin tone on my upper legs from my pregnancies too that made me a bit uncomfortable during summer time and the Bio-Oil seems to work fast on uneven skin tone cause it has disappeared a lot, it's so amazing! I got back on using religiously twice a day Bio-Oil and definitely recommend it to anyone to try.

    Bio-Oil is the best product to use to prevent stretch marks, and to help lessen the appearance of scars, discolourations/uneven skin tone. It also works well to hydrate the skin! It at first feels oily but once the product is applied proper -in the circular motion your skin just drinks it up (no doubt thanking you!). It also has a very pleasent light scent. I would recommend this product to anyone!

    This product really works ! The smell is slight perfumed and not strong at all so you don't have to worry about people being able to smell it and noticing that you're using this product. I'm a yo-yo er and my weight fluctuates quite a bit so stretch marks form rather easily. I've been using this product for about 2 months now, and my stretch marks have faded a lot ! I also use this product on my face and my face has been so incredibly soft. Face complexion is so much better ! The great thing about this product is that after you use it, your hands arent oily ! you could eaily just use a tissue to wipe your hands and voila--it's gone ! no mess !

    I personally love bio oil. I think it is really helpful for healing all sorts of scars and I love that even though I have oily skin, it absorbs so quickly and my skin just feels silky smooth. I've used it on a few scars, and while it isn't a miracle worker by any means - definitely no overnight miracle - with continued use it helps my skin to heal faster than without and redues redness. I've used it on my face and body for anything from sunburns to acne scars to flaky skin. I just love it!

    This product is great for many problems such as...
    1. Scars
    2. Stretchmarks
    3. Uneven skin tone
    4. Aging Skin
    5. Dehydrated Skin

    It is intended to be used twice a day, for a minimum of 3 months.
    Though this product is a bit pricey, it's much cheaper if you buy the 200ml bottle (you get much more for your money), and since it's an oil, not much is needed to be effective.

    I wouldn't personally recommend putting it all over your face, as it can make some people break out. Like many people, I have dry patches on my face, so I put a little dab on my dry spots and they're gone within minutes!

    Though I don't have scars to put it on, I have a friend that had a bad scar on her foot and it was almost gone within 3-4 months of using Bio-Oil!

    I have also been putting a bit on mild stretch marks. I have been using it for 2 months now and I'm slowly starting to see the stretch marks disappear :D It's a very good feeling!

    I HIGHLY recommend this product for people with even mild skin complaints!

    I have been using Bio Oil for 2 years now and I am very happy with it. I have a few old acnescars and large pores. Bio oil softens them and makes them less noticable. Great under makeup.
