Before bio-oil, I had several problems:
My t-zone was excessively oily
My chin area and cheeks were dry and flaky
Every time I went to take a nap, I'd wake up with several white heads each time
After I'd wash and exfoliate my face, my face would be red and my chin area would be especially irritated
My skin would not absorb most moisturizers, I believe the cause of my daily white heads were my moisturizers
The first time I used bio-oil, I noticed a difference. It wasn't a significant difference, however, I just noticed how soft my face was. After the first time I used bio-oil, I went to take a nap and I woke to normal, whitehead free skin. Normal meaning there was no excessive oil, nor was there any dryness. I also noticed there was no redness like there usually was.
I've been using bio-oil for a month now and I have to say it has helped with my acne. It wasn't, however, the only thing that combated my acne. I think the thing that helped was thorough exfoliation, which I used a neutrogena cleanser for, which helped with the dead skin. Bio-oil helped regulate my skin's oil, which helped my acne. I credit both the neutrogena and bio-oil for improving my skin.
I've used everything from proactive to every brand name cleanser available, nothing has worked as well as bio-oil has. I'm very, very grateful for it.
Here is a list of improvements bio-oil has done:
Normal skin, ie no flakiness on the cheeks/chin area and no oily t-zone.
No redness or irritation, my problem areas were around my nose, cheeks, and chin. I wake up to clear skin each day.
My chin and cheeks have been prone to acne before bio-oil. No acne flare ups since.
I had a large group of small blemishes on my cheeks. They have greatly improved.
