How does Bio-Oil work?
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
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.

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.Read more ›
Bio Oil is nice to apply. I say this because I have been applying it to my bald head for a few years and my forehead and around my eyes. It does improve skin tone and heals up cuts and scars nicely. It also works really well on dry skin. However, be wary of applying it to broken/irritated skin... it's probably not the best thing to use as a balm after shaving for instance! Do not apply it before going out in the sun either unless you want to be fried!
Having said all of that, here's the thing about Bio Oil. It is a petroleum based oil, not a natural oil - which might pose a problem for some, particularly regarding sustainability. So I am experimenting with more natural oils - mostly with Organic Virgin Coconut Oil - which is plant based (I know Petroleum is strictly speaking) and certainly less greasy than Bio Oil and the coconut oil smells lovely too! I will review the coconut oil once I have tried it for a few months and can more accurately compare and contrast, but it is a cheaper alternative to Bio Oil.
I am not entirely convinced by the "breakthrough ingredient" in Bio Oil - Porcelain oil... the sceptic in me wants to question it a little and see some studies showing what it actually does and where it comes from... it's trade marked to Bio Oil so that raises some questions in my mind.
Anyway, on the whole, I do like Bio Oil and think that it does produce noticeable results when used consistently - twice a day for 3 months, but do read the ingredients list carefully and make sure you are happy putting it on your skin before you part with your money.
It is not a miracle (and does not claim to be so) but it does improve the appearance of scars and stretch marks as it does claim, mine have faded slightly. However the best result surprised me. I have dermatitis, very sensitive (and prone to spots) skin and also odd spots of hyper-pigmentation. I use it on my face and it lessens the redness, clears up my dry skin and intensively moisturises the sore flaky patches more than my previous speciality product did (a vitamin E cream).
It does say on the leaflet that is leaves a protective barrier on the skin which is what the previous reviews mentioned. Put too much on and it does sit on the surface on the skin but if applied after a hot bath or shower, a couple of drops easily does the whole face and neck and massage in (instructions on how to massage face on leaflet included) it spreads even with no greasiness just a slight lubricated feel as previously mentioned.
It is my only facial moisturiser these days (bar an extra specialist cream for just on my darker pigmentation marks), takes care off the lighter marks and my skin looks much better plus I love the scent.
What suits one though does not suit another so I recommend a small bottle to start with and if you do not like it for face and body, it makes an excellent night time hand and nail treatment (with gloves if you feel it's too oily).
Top marks from me and my humble opinion and experience.
