REVIEW: THE BIO OIL for stretch marks, scars and dry skin

If there’s one skincare product that has been on everybody’s shelf for the past one year, it has to be BIO OIL, I have heard so many great things about it and wanted to try it out for the longest time, so I have extremely dry skin and it’s gotten worse over time and almost all the body lotions were too mild or would immediately make me sweat like a pig( I have hyperoxia, which is a condition where your palms get sweaty for no absolute reason) I was in my local makeup store and my mother suggested I pick this up for my extreme dry skin so I did and this was my experience with it:

Product description:

According to the company  “Bio Oil is a specialist skincare product formulated to help improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. Its unique formulation, which contains the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil, is also highly effective for aging and dehydrated skin. PurCellin Oil reduces the thickness of the Bio-Oil formulation and makes it easily absorbed” and the shelf life of this product is 36 months which in my opinion is a long time.


The actual bottle of Bio-Oil is placed inside a white carton and accompanied by an instruction manual (it even has diagrams demonstrating the application of the product. The bottle is simple, it contains a pinkish hue to it giving it some pop but it’s simple and in my opinion it serves the purpose of selling it self.

My view:

As, I mentioned I have severly dehydrated skin but once I started using it, my skin feels much better, after I bathe I use the oil on my body like a regular moisturizer, it has a light consistency so it easily goes deep into skin cells. It is non-greasy which is very important for me because otherwise I start sweating. The most unusual thing I noticed about Bio-Oil is that it has a pinkish-orange tone, which turns completely transparent as soon as it comes outside the bottle. There is a very mild fragrance, which reminds me of herbal beauty products. No matter how dry your skin is, 2-3 drops of the product is enough to hydrate your skin, it also fights aging, scars and stretch marks.  I absloutely love this product, it’s resolved my issue of dry skin and the days I forget to use this, my skin feels a lot worse, unevenly dehyrdrated and coarse.


450rs for 60ml( I suggest you buy the smaller one and test it out but since you need to use very little of the product, this should be fine)

The benefits and uses of Bio Oil Body Oil:

  • It comes in a sturdy and convenient plastic bottle packaging with a screw-on white cap and a hole to dispense the oil. Travel-friendly, does not leak at all.
  • it has a very light, runny texture, thin consistency- not at all sticky or greasy- sinks into skin instantly.
  • Skin looks plump and radiant instantly without looking/feeling oil unlike using coconut or olive oil.
  • It worked amazingly on my stubborn dark circles since neither my sleep hours nor my diet underwent a change during its use.
  • It also improved my skin and faded my acne spots mildly.

The cons of Bio Oil Skincare Specialist Oil:

  • Might be heavy for oilies like me in summer.

Would I recommend?

100 percent, this is my holy grail product. If you have scars, acne, dehydrated skin or you’re pregnant, this is a must buy because it is proven to work. Apply it twice a day for 3 months and you will see the results.

 Rating- 4.9/5.

  1. Summer time is actually the perfect time to use this product, I’ve found. I’m an Irish lass in Australia, so I’m in a constant fight with the sun. I’ve actually stopped using Aloe Vera to treat sunburn, opting for Bio Oil instead. It heals my skin faster than Aloe Vera!

      1. Well for me it does. If I even have a hint of sunburn I use this before anything else! It’s so hydrating and doesn’t leave that gunk behind that Aloe does.


    2. Also, I’m going to be in Melbourne in 2 days, can you suggest where to buy makeup and clothes?


      1. I’m in Perth, so unfortunately I’m useless for that sort of recommendation! There’s a couple of chain stores that you should find over there. Forevernew. Temt, valley girl, ally, they are good ones 🙂
