bio-oil: review

Today's post is a review of bio-oil. So let's jump straight into it.

The Claims
Bio‑Oil is a specialist skincare oil that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. It is also effective for aging and dehydrated skin

The Reality
Radha: I have been using bio-oil for the past 3 and half years. I think it's a fantastic product and it has become one of my staples. I have scarring left on my skin from eczema as a child and have seen an improvement in both my skin and it's tone since I began using bio-oil. I use it daily after showering both on my face and body and feel as though it leaves my skin really moisturised.

Sita: Radha has talked a lot about this product and so I decided to try it out. I have used it for the past few weeks and I would agree that it is moisturising. It does leave your skin feeling a bit greasy after initially application (but it is an oil afterall!) I don't suffer from scarring/stretch marks but I think it's a nice product to use now and then when your skin requires a little more hydration.

The Packaging
The product comes in a plastic tube which is adequate. 

The Price 
Boots: 13.49/125ml
Superdrug: £14.99/125ml

The Ultimate Question: Would I Repurchase?
Yes most definitely!  

The Overall Score: 4.5/5

Have you tried bio-oil? What are your thoughts?

Sita and Radha xoxo

  1. I have a scar from an injury on my knee which happened when I was a child and unfortunately bio oil didn't help fade it. I think its because my scar is such an old scar and thick white, xoxo.

  7. I've always heard great things about Bio-Oil but I've still remained a skeptic. Perhaps I'll give it a try.

    1. Maybe try Rescue oil which is a similar product but can be found in the poundshop. We will try to review Rescue oil soon.

  22. I've always been a bit sceptical about picking up this product due to the price but will defiantly pick it up now. I have bad stretch marks so might help on them!

    1. It'll work best on red/purple strech marks as once they turn white/silvery they are difficult to get rid of
