Bio Oil - Guest Post

Today we have a guest post from our friend Denise (everybody say Hi).  She had been trying to minimise some scars for a number of years so I had to recommend Bio Oil. This famous oil is an amazing innovation and a leader in the market of scar removal.  Take it away Denise.

I first heard of Bio Oil a few years back when Mags recommended it to me to get rid of a few scars on my tummy. So I took myself off to Boots in Liffey Valley and bought the small bottle which is 60ml. Bio Oil comes in 3 different sizes; 60ml, 125ml and 200ml.  I started to use it that very evening and twice a day after that – mainly after having my shower. I put a few drops into the palm of my hand and rub both hands together and rub it into my tummy. The oil is absorbed by the skin quickly, giving you moisturised and soft skin. More importantly it doesn’t stain your clothes!

When you purchase the oil, the box label contains information on what Bio Oil can do for you. Here are the manufacturer’s promises:

• Improve the appearance of stretch marks

• Improve the appearance of scars

• Address skin issues like aging or age spots

• Even-out skin tone

All Bio Oil packaging is totally recyclable and all paper materials are certified to be in accordance with sustainable forest management practices. No harmful emissions, hazardous waste or wastewater is generated in the production. Bio Oil and is a member of Beauty Without Cruelty International.

The oil itself contains PurCellin Oil which is a patented ingredient. It works with other ingredients like vitamin A, vitamin E, chamomile, lavender, and calendula. The product is safe for pregnant women and can be used to address stretch marks. Hormonal problems can also cause skin pigmentation, and the Bio Oil is a good solution to get rid of the spots.

The same is true with the Bio Oil reviews for scars (which is primarily why I bought it). The oil is quite effective in minimizing the appearance of scars when used as directed. A great advantage of using Bio Oil is that it has no greasy after-feel like other regular oils.   It really helped with the redness of my scars but this doesn’t just happen overnight you do have to keep using it. In turn I recommended it to a friend when she got pregnant - she used Bio Oil every day during pregnancy and is stretch mark free (although of course some people are going to be more prone to stretch marks depending on skin type, tone, elasticity and colour - in other words you can just be lucky).  To minimise stretch marks and scars its best to apply Bio Oil when the marks are in their red stage (while the skin is stretching or scaring). 
Bio Oil is not a one trick pony (although scars and stretch marks already make it two tricks) you can also use this multi tasking oil to moisturise your face. 

While out shopping to replace my empty bottle I noticed the price differs depending on what store you go to so do shop around to get the best value for your €uro. I now buy mine online from either ebay or amazon as you can get special offers and some offer free postage.

If you have scars or stretch marks I would recommend Bio Oil, it's part of my everyday routine now. Pin It


  1. Hi Denise!:) I love bio-oil, can't get enough of it and it's a god send when you're losing weight:)

  2. I used this every night (well most nights) before I went to bed when i was preggers. No stretch marks today :).
    I liked that it wasn't sticky either, and a little goes a long way.
