Bio Oil Review

One of the biggest myths I have heard is that “oily skinned ladies should stay away from face oils” – biggest BS ever. With all thenew innovative oils, all these companies are coming up with, it’s time to make new myths.  I had heard about Bio Oil a long time back in one of the glossies.  At that time, e-commerce just starting in India and there was no way we could get all these miracle cosmetics here, so when I landed in USA 3 years ago, Bio Oil was the first thing I picked up.

My Take on Bio Oil:

From the past 3 years, this has been in my medicine cabinet. I have converted half of my family into using it. I started using it first as a body oil. I had heard so much about it working on stretch marks and skin elasticity. I used it on my cracked feet, cuticles, almost everywhere replacing my daily moisturizer. After about a month of usage, I found that an old burn mark started to fade a bit. Also, my stretch marks looked a tad better, and then I decided to finally let it touch my oily face. Obviously, at first I piled on and it felt “chip-chip” the whole night. Later on, as time went by, I worked around it . These days, I use it in my bi-weekly night facial regimen.

Oily skin : you need one drop each for cheeks, forehead, nose and mouth.
Dry skin : Go to town with it. Trust me!

It gets absorbed super fast as you massage it in your skin, but I would recommend you take a tiny amount at first and then build on it, especially on your DA colletage. If you want to give something to your mom, get her this. This is the reason I haven’t bought a night cream yet and I’m just starting to find an anti-aging something. This is how I use it :

  • As a body oil.
  • As a foot oil for cracked feet.
  • Cuticle oil.
  • On my hair as a light oil – I wash it in an hour.
  • I mix it with grain sugar as a lip scrub and body scrub.
  • Works on burn marks.
  • Stretch marks look better.
  • Can be used on cracked feet, cuticles.

Twice a week I scrub my face and then massage a few drops on dewy skin before I sleep. I do this especially when I have functions to attend.

Like I said, my mom and in-laws are addicted to this and I recommend it to all my friends who are expecting.

Pros of Bio Oil:

  • Inexpensive.
  • Absorbs quickly.
  • Does not stain clothes.
  • Has a pleasant and light fragrance.
  • Available in all drugstores and I guess in India too.
  • Has not broken me out till date.
  • Can be used as a hair oil.

Cons of Bio Oil:

  • Oily skin, don’t pile it on your face.
  • Your MIL might steal it from you.

  7. I got bio oil sometime back and it has reduced my scars a little. Very happy with the results. But with the face I’m not able to judge it that much. First it seemed to even out my skin, in a week I had a few breakouts. So I really don’t know if it was because of this oil. But otherwise I think if you have scars, then this is great for that.

  8. I have been using it regularly on my super duper oily skin. It never broke me out and works like charm right from the first application. Now I know why women around the globe swear by it. Loove bio oil.

  14. i am using bio oil for 2 months on my dry n sensitive skin its working good for dryness but for pigmentation cant say anything ,its working on that problem too bt slowley.and it is available in india too

  15. This is such a great product..!!! I haven’t tried it for stretch marks, but I use it generally as a night moisturizer. Bio-Oil is quickly absorbed in the skin. And you need very little amount of it. Literally two drops would be enough for the coverage of all of your face as well as neck. My skin seems to have a nice glow after using this for just a week or so regularly. I’m yet to try this for stretch marks, but I’m guessing this would work wonders on that too. All and all, a great purchase. Total value for money..!!

  16. I am having chicken pox. Somewhere it was suggested to use BioOil for the scars to heal. Any advices? Also what’s the brand name?

  17. as we are recommended to use bio oil twice a day so can it protect us from suntanning or sunburn…and by applying it do we are able to go outside in hot sunny day..??? plz reply…
