When I first used this I was appalled that it was mineral oil, which I never use. And in research found that Purcellin is a made up name for who knows what, but after using it, I can say that my dark spots are fading and I've been using it for only a matter of weeks. My skin looks better and feels soft and healthy. Who knew? Anyway, I'm a believer and have recommended it to friends.
This stuff is awesome. I get dry patches on my face in the winter and since using this, no more dry patches! I have pretty sensitive skin and I can't use most creamy moisturizers because I'll break out, Bio-Oil adds the moisture I need without breaking me out. It also helps to reduce old acne scars and evens out my skin tone. As an added benefit, the smell is light and clean!
I used this religiously while pregnant and I loved it! The scent is really nice, although some people might not like it as much as others because it does have a very strong essential oil scent. I originally bought this to help prevent stretch marks. I ended up getting a few on my hips and butt. However, I think this definitely helped keep my skin nourished and healthy all throughout my pregnancy. It is hard to tell how effective it was at preventing more stretch marks from forming since I don't know how many I would have gotten without it. But the product made my skin feel so healthy and soft. I highly recommend for any pregnant women out there or anyone looking for a nice nourishing product! It definitely is an oil so you don't need a lot of it. It spreads around really easily. I do warn that it will create oil stains on certain clothing. I would always put it on before going to bed and it created an oil stain across the belly of my gray night shirt. I'm not too upset about it since it's just a simple t-shirt that I only wear to bed, but if you are potentially going to use it before putting on a nice shirt, I would warn against it, just in case.
Best advice was from a dermatological nurse I happened to meet at my surgeon's office. Her daughter had just had surgery also. Her advice: Use BioOil daily on surgical scar once wound is healed, rub in the direction of the scar (not across it), and do not expose the scar to sunlight - for at least 6 months. This advice was very helpful. I now also use BioOil on my skin after showering. It is wonderful.
This is probably my 12ty bottle. I used to buy at Walgreens for double the price! I’m glad sells them. I use this for my stretch marks from being pregnant. Also on my heels to prevents ugly dry cracked heels. I love how subtle the smell is. Oh and I’ve also used it when i was pregnant. I slathered them food on my belly and I guess that’s why I only have super small and faint stretch marks because of it.
