Product Description

Size: 200 ml

Product Description

Bio-Oil is trusted by millions of people across the world for scars, stretch marks, ageing skin, dehydrated skin and uneven skin tone. A unique blend of natural plant oils and vitamins, Bio-Oil is a multiple use product that has been clinically proven(1) to help with scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, ageing skin and dehydrated skin.

How can Bio-Oil help you?

Scars and stretch marks are very common, in fact, on average each person has three scars(2) and half of women have stretch marks(3). 89% of pharmacists(4) recommend Bio-Oil for scar management, so whether you have an old or new scar, Bio-Oil can help reduce the appearance when used correctly.

How does Bio-Oil work?

Bio-Oil Formulation

The Bio-Oil formulation combines some of the most beneficial skincare ingredients, including vitamin A and E with Calendula, Lavender, Rosemary and Chamomile oils, plus unique to Bio-Oil, PurCellin Oil, which helps to ensure they are easily-absorbed deep into the skin where they can provide targeted treatment. PurCellin Oil also creates a dry oil which is non-greasy and easy to use.

Vitamin A helps improve the skin's elasticity, texture and tone

Vitamin E is the most widely used antioxidant in skincare products today, increasing the moisture content of the epidermis, thereby making the skin softer, smoother and more supple. Vitamin E also assists in the maintenance of healthy-looking skin

Calendula Oil (Calendula Officinalis) is more commonly referred to as marigold, which has been used for centuries as a natural antioxidant and has the ability to clarify and stimulates the growth of new skin cells

Lavender Oil is widely known for calming and soothing benefits

Rosemary Oil helps to invigorate and it has a mild antiseptic capabilities and thus eases congestion, puffiness and swelling of the skin

Chamomile Oil has a calming and soothing effect and is particularly beneficial for sensitive skin

How to apply Bio-Oil

How to apply

Bio-Oil can be used on the face and body and is suitable for all skin types. To gain the best results, it should be applied to the affected area:

  • Twice daily
  • Massaging in a circular motion, until fully absorbed
  • For a recommended minimum period of 3 months

Bio-Oil can be used alongside other skincare products as part of your daily skincare routine, but it should not be mixed with other products before application.

When using Bio-Oil as part of an overall grooming routine:

  • Apply it to cleansed skin
  • Allow it to be adsorbed for 2-3 minutes before applying other products
  • Use Bio-Oil in conjunction with an effective sunscreen, as Bio-Oil does not contain a sun protection factor


What's your skin complaint?

Scars: If you have visible scarring and feel it affects your self-confidence, as over a third(5) of women do, Bio-Oil's unique formulation helps to improve the appearance of scars. It can be used on new (once wound has healed) and old scars such as surgery, accidents, burns, insect bites, scratches and chickenpox.

Stretch Marks: Bio-Oil can be used during pregnancy to help keep skin moisturised and reduce the possibility of stretch marks forming, whilst also helping to improve the appearance of stretch marks gained during periods of rapid weight gain or loss.

Uneven Skin Tone: Bio-Oil can also be used for uneven skin tone, caused by hormonal fluctuations, skin lighteners or excessive sun exposure.

Ageing Skin: Bio-Oil helps smooth and moisturise ageing, sagging and wrinkled skin on both the face and body. Alongside the ingredient, PurCellin Oil, Bio-Oil also includes Vitamin A, which helps improve the skin's elasticity, texture and tone and Vitamin E, which increases the moisture content of the epidermis, making the skin softer, smoother and more supple. Another key ingredient is Chamomile Oil, which has a calming and soothing effect and is particularly beneficial for sensitive skin.

Dehydrated Skin: Bio-Oil helps replenish the skin's natural oils, stripped away by factors such as extreme weather, water with high chemical content, frequent bathing and the drying effects of central heating and air-conditioning. Try massaging into dry patches such as nail cuticles, dry elbows and heels for targeted relief. Bio-Oil is enriched with Vitamin E to protect against dehydration and Vitamin A to keep skin supple and smooth. Bio-Oil skincare expert Kirsty Mawhinney says, 'You can use Bio-Oil all over your body, including on the face, to provide daily protection and to perfect your skin.

I lost some weight recently and was shocked to find small stretch marks on my upper arms and neck. Didn't expect that to happen, it was only a little over a stone. I was really uncomfortable, and stopped going sleeveless or short sleeves which is ridiculous. My cousin handed me a bottle of this after getting tired of my complaints, and it really helps. I put it on at night after my shower, I think warm skin helps absorb oil better. Don't look for immediate results, it takes a couple of weeks before you notice a change, after a month, I was really happy and felt ok about wearing my sleeveless tops. The stretch marks aren't gone completely, but they are only slightly noticeable and I feel like now people see the weight loss and not the marks on my arms and neck. I highly recommend it for stretch marks.

A co-worker told me that she uses this as a moisturizer, so I tried it on my face and body. It's ok, I'm not going to do a dance about how perfect my skin is, but it helped and made me think about using oil for my skin care. I found this Bel Essence - (2oz) 100% All-Natural Organic Anti-Wrinkle Formula with Argan, Grapeseed and Sesame Oil - 2oz which works really well and it's great if you like 100% all natural oil products. I then found the cream Bel Essence - Intensive All-Natural Anti-Wrinkle Treatment. Reduce the Appearance of Facial Lines and Wrinkles Naturally - 1.5oz, and I since I'm used to a cream for skin care I use this. Love the oil too, but I'm a cream person.

I must say this oil is brilliant!!!! Yes, it's oily but it is oil! It smells lovley and really does the job. I have used it on a burn scar and under my eyes. I tend to use the oil every morning after washing my face and then before I go to bed - if you use a bit it soaks into your skin and gives you a fresh glow :-)

Good blemish remover, but don't find it moisturises enough for me although this could be my very dry skin. Use Aqueaous cream to moisturise and Bio Oil for blemishes etc.

Bio Oil was recommended to me by a relative who had several major surgeries in a short period and was using it to minimize scarring. She was so pleased with it and found it worked really well in this area. She had also been putting it on her face and had discovered it had an effect on her skin tone. I was sceptical but as I am unwilling to buy expensive creams etc. I thought I would listen to her and give it a go.

I am 60 and menopausal and as a result my skin is beginning to thin and to line a little. The colour is also becoming rather uneven and the combination of all these was making me look ( and feel) my age. It took a few weeks of consistant use, but I have found that my skin is so much softer to the touch. The colour has evened out considerably and the lines are definitely much less obvious. I know it has worked because I cannot tell you how many compliments I am receiving on an almost dailly basis from people looking at me quizzically and then asking me what I have been doing, as I appear to be getting younger. I was approached by a perfect stranger the other day in the supermarket, who asked me what type of make up I was wearing as I had a lovely glow - I wasn't wearing any and was able to direct her to the Bio Oil shelf!

Don't give up if you don't see a difference after only a couple of weeks; the smalll amount of effort it takes to apply it a couple of times a day (e.g. before your morning routine and after cleansing in the evening) for a couple of months will pay dividends you will be delighted with. When it becomes an automatic part of your dailly routine, you can sit back and enjoy the compliments.

I bought mine originally from the high street and then a much larger size(125ml)bottle from Amazon, as it was a lot cheaper than retail.

I first heard of a Bio oil when I noticed I had strech marks on the side of my thighs and on my upper thighs and hip area, I had no idea why they popped up as I have had no weight issues or anything so I have assumed my skin is just prone to them.

I found Bio oil while browsing online but wasn't sure because the price was quite a lot even for the smallest bottle, when I asked people I know they all said "yeah works wonders! Definitely worth the money." So I went and brought some.

I used it morning, afternoon and last thing at night for the recommended 3 months, even though just after the first month my bottle was almost empty, so I finally had to take note of the saying, "a little goes a long way." Also I don't understand why it's stated as being "non greasy" because when I applied it I found it VERY greasy which was annoying for me. Anyway throughout those months nothing changed regarding my stretch marks at all, I really felt I had wasted my money. I will say though, it is good for dehydrated skin and helps your skin have a healthy glow, but for me that's all it does.

I have since moved on to new products from Lidl and Aldi and some of the pound shop brands as I have had better results while using them, and for half the price, some of them even smell nicer.

Bio oil is a product you have to try yourself, you can ask countless people how good it is and have them say it's "amazing" but until you try it yourself you won't know, because it won't work on everyone. So my advice is if you want to try it, try it, don't ask people if it works cos it may be different for you, and if you try it and it doesn't work, move on to something else otherwise your just wasting money and time.
