Not a good option

I tried Bio Oil for dark spots on my torso and seemed to work OK. I mean, I didn't expect much for its price, but then I tried it on my face and I instantly had a breakout. So maybe don't use for your acne scars.

If you're acne prone then Bio Oil will probably generate a breakout. You can instead try various essential oils, which are very light and volatile. They're also pretty strong, so you must use them with a carrier oil such as almond oil, argan oil, Neem oil, calendula oil or hemp oil if you have a rather delicate skin. Lavander essential oil is widely known for its anti-acne properties. Tea tree essential oil is a great antibiotic and antiseptic. Lemon essential oil works great for dark spots and scars, but be careful and use sunscreen when using this one.

If you have problems with acne scars I recommend applying Mederma. It's clinically proven and works miracles for fresher scars.

Works but makes me break out

I used this oil religiously everyday for two months and i can honestly tell you that it does work when fighting hyper-pigmentation. the only problem is that the oil clogs my pores and causes me to break out resulting in more hyper-pigmentation.

it’s okay

I bought this because people said it was their holy grail for acne scars. I have some active acne in between my eyebrows and on my nose but other than that I have acne scars all over my forehead. I usually run it al over my face at night and in the morning I put a thin layer just on my forehead. Ever since I started using it I’ve noticed a lot more tiny bumps on my fore head and my acne scars haven’t changed

Good for Skin That Doesn't Have Active Acne
I think the problem many people have with this product is that they're using it over active breakouts. The directions say not to use over broken skin. However, as someone who has dealt with cystic acne for many years with very sensitive, very oily skin, this product was great for removing hyperpigmentation. **However**, I waited until after my active acne was cleared up through use of other products before using this one. Don't be scared of using oil on top of your oily skin, I found that it helped me obtain more balanced skin. I also only used this product before bed, after I already cleansed and moisturized. Overall, great product that helped me remove hyperpigmentation and hydrated my rolling acne scars making them less visible.

Broke me out horribly! Mederma or acne free scar eraser is better

Breakout warning
I've clear skin already, just wanna reduce some acne scars and my face is very dry, so i bought this, it is works since i notice in the third month, my acne scars fade away and a little bit smooth (just a little bit), but then in the third month also broke me out so badly, i have 2 big acne in just one night, then i still using it, until i have 4 big acne and it hurt so much, so bumpy. Then i have 8 not really big-acne. The big acne now leave a really bad spot T,T and the 8 not really big-acne still in my face and it is so hard to get rid of it!

broke out so so badly
I've been on the pill for a month and half now and my skin has started to improve. I used bio oil to help with bad scarring. Within a day my skin broke out so badly ! It's like I've not been on the pill at all! I would say do a test on a small scar for a couple of days before putting it in your whole face like I did.

It's alright.
I used bio oil back in the day on my acne scars and they started to fade within about a week of use. Recently my skin has been going through a breakout period, but has finally cleared up and i've decided to go back onto bio oil to reduce the scarring. I've used it every night for about a week and a half and it hasn't really done much.. or maybe i haven't noticed a change. It also leaves my skin feeling oily, so i would only use this at night time. Also this product isn't known for working 100% for acne scars, mainly it has a high success rate for stretch marks so don't be surprised that it hasn't worked for you.

This is straight up mineral oil !!!! Clogs pores and does not work. Don't even try this it's not worth it.

😱 it works
I've been using bio oil on my 14yr old stretch marks and they r now 4* smaller then they used to b after a month of applying to them so I started thinking if bio oil would help my acne on face back and boobs been using it on all acne prone areas and am noticing a huge difference a week later I'm surprised I can now face each day with confidence and not have to apply wall paint 😂 but b warned bio oil isn't for all skin types best to use on face if u have non oilly skin bio oil has been an absolute god send for me I certainly recommend it
