Bio-Oil is formulated with oils to moisturise, as well as plant extracts and vitamin E to hydrate and soothe irritated skin. It can be used on any skin type but is especially great for expecting mothers or those suffering from skin conditions such as eczema.
‘This absolutely works wonders,’ one reviewer wrote. ‘I used it when I had a flare-up of dermatitis, got rid of it in a few days and my skin has never been better. And I’ve not had any problems since.’
‘Cannot recommend enough!’ another raved. ‘I had open surgery on my stomach five months ago, leaving a nasty scar. I purchased Bio Oil about 2/3 months ago – applying in the morning, after a shower and before bed.
What are stretch marks?
- Stretch marks are very common. They’re harmless and often get less visible over time.
- Stretch marks look like lines or streaks across the skin.
- Stretch marks can be pink, red, brown, black, silver or purple. They usually start off darker and fade over time.
- Stretch marks are most common on the tummy, chest, upper arms, legs, bottom, hips or back.
‘The results speak to themselves! I was going to get my scar tattooed over to cover it up, but I now don’t need to as you can barely see it. I will keep on applying it as it keeps the scar moisturised and feels great.’
Bio-Oil is not just a stretch mark product. Several Amazon reviewers note that they find it effective at combating dryness, diminishing acne spots and even reducing dark under-eye circles.
‘I bought this back in March,’ one customer explained. ‘Honestly, this did wonders for me.
‘I struggle with spots due to stress. I had dry patches and oily patches; this got rid of any dry skin and controlled the oiliness in my skin.
‘I have sensitive skin, so I was shocked. It got rid of 2-year-old scarring and any fresh scars or spots.’
As for application, the brand recommends massaging the oil ‘in a circular motion into the stretch marks, twice daily, for a minimum of three months’.
During pregnancy ‘it should be applied from the start of the second trimester to areas that are prone to stretch marks such as the abdomen, breasts, lower back, hips, buttocks and thighs’.
