Hiya, I tried bio oil for a week or two and it did seem to help slightly with fading my marks, however it led to some really really stubborn spots in that area which also left red marks so I'd be wary of using it!

I tried twice before: last year and last 3 months.

It faded my redmarks slightly (so slightly).

However, I don;t really like this oil. It almost did nothing to my redmarks.

I ordered bio oil on ebay from the UK, used it for a couple weeks. Funny how everyone says it's greasy - On the box it says "non-greasy." It is oily though. I believe it did help my redmarks a little bit, but not much. Had i used this product for several months, it may have been a different story... but seriously - I felt like this stuff made more zits appear, so unless you have't gotten a single zit in over a month I'm not sure I'd recommend this stuff.
===================================================
Skin Type: white/tanned, mild/moderate and highly persistant acne, some whiteheads and non-inflamed acne (rarely cysts), redmarks last for about 2-12 months. Combination skin (very oily and dry at the same time) and sensitive.
===================================================
CURRENT REGIMEN:

day - OC8

night - Differin 0.1 (retinoid)

cleanser - Cetaphil mild cleanser "softens as it cleans" ===================================================
CURRENT RESULTS: 15 September, 2009

Differin saved my skin! My main problem these days is oily skin. OC8 works well, but it's too expensive and I'm running out. Thinking about getting Milk of Magnesia (MOM) to apply topically. Suggestions welcome.
===================================================

Use it ONLY on the red marks if you are still breaking out... I don't dare use it on really oily areas of my face like my nose because I'm scared i'll break out, but I spread it liberally on my upper cheeks (where I never break out) and it leaves a lovely dewy 'glowy' look! But for the rest of the red marks, I use a q-tip and just dot the stuff on...

Good luck and i hope it works for ya!
