I don't have bad acne at all but I tend to panic when I have clogged pores and pick at them, leaving nasty red marks and sometimes scabs. Recently I made a mess out of my face and out of panic I thought I would try bio oil. I went to Walmart and discovered they have their own brand for $11/120 mil (half the price of the real stuff). By the next morning the red spots were almost completely gone! From experience I know it usually takes at least a week for them to heal. So far it hasn't made any new blemishes, but you gotta remember all skin is different. Even though it is oil, its oil that can trap dirt in pores, not oil that causes the actually problem. Also some oils prevent blemishes on their own (ie tea tree oil) because they have anti bacterial properties that clean out the pores. All in all I would say its working for me, but you have to try it for youself!
I have been using bio-oil on my legs for a few months and it works very well on mosquito bite scars, injury scars, and other scars.
It really WORKS for these type of scars!! :)
I don't use this for my face, but I do hear that it causes breakouts.
This doesn't work that well for stretch marks that you already have because I have tried it for stretch marks on my legs-they're from teen growth spurts.
However, I heard that it works well if you don't have them, so use it to prevent stretch marks during pregnancy.
I recommend COCOA BUTTER for stretch marks.
For me, the small bottle is 14 dollars and the big bottle is 18, so the big bottle is worth the price!!!
I've been using bio oil for a few weeks now and it has improved my acne scarring. I only use it at night after cleansing (I don't use toner) and rub a few drops into my cheeks and problem areas in a circular motion until it's absorbed.
Very happy with the results, I'll recommend it for anyone with fair/sensitive skin prone to acne as 'oil dissolves oil'.
I used to get terrible breakouts all around my mouth, especially on my chin and so was left with some hideous red marks.
I put this on at night for a few weeks and already the redness has almost totally faded! Im delighted as its the 1st thing thats worked for me so far after trying Aloe, Vitamin E, agnus castus drops etc.
I would highly recommend. I was worried because I have oily skin already and thought this was going to be too heavy but im really happy. Everyones skin is different I suppose but deffo give it a try :-)
I can’t believe me, that after all of the years with very deep acne scars, I am getting back to something like baby face, my face is getting healthier day by day, even my wife noticed this thing, my acne scars is evening out really well, I just hope that it will help with deep acne scars, so I will keep using this Bio-Oil and keep my finger crossed.
worked ok as an all over treatment at first but not too well then i tried it as a spot treatment only. that worked pretty good but not as well as i hoped. so i bought vit e gel and used that as a spot treatment over bio oil which was all over my face that faded them fast like two days not completely gone but much better. use it with another scar treatment morning and night works better than anything else.
This product is really working for me. I have olive to medium brown skin, and light acne.. so when I get acne scars, I REALLY get acne scars...the trick is to get small drops on your fingers and then really rub it into your skin....you have to really rub in circles over your scar, until it has almost absorbed...if you do not rub it into your skin then you are just placing it onto the top layer, which actually doesnt do anything
What I do is first gently exfoliate the skin, rinse with cold water, and then aplly small amounts of bio oil onto my fingers. Then i gently rub in circles onto my skin (your skin should turn a little bit pink from the heat and circulation) and then just do that until it has all absorbed
if you leave some of the oil on your skin then yes, it will break you out. Just use a little and remember to RUB IT ALL IN!
it makes my skin feel really good i put after i get out the shower whille me pures are still open and it works really good on my pregnant tummy.
It doesn't do anything for acne or acne scars, if anything just makes it worse.
BUT one thing I use it for is stretch marks. I used it everyday, sometimes twice a day if I had the time. I didnt just apply it to the troubled areas, but I massaged it in for a few minutes, sometimes even the whole time Im on the phone with my boyfriend! (which is a long time). It works better that way. There are AWESOME results for that. Now Im not so iffy about wearing shorts or skirts :)
