Here’s what our Review Crew® had to say about the famous scar-reducing oil

The product

When it comes to taking care of our skin, sometimes we have to look a little further than a 3-step skin care routine.

Sometimes we’re dealing with things that require a bit of TLC.

But before we go to extremes trying to minimise the appearance of stretch marks, scars and uneven skin tone – we’d like to introduce you to a natural solution.

Say hello to the new member of the Bio-Oil family: Bio-Oil Skincare Oil Natural.

Yep that’s right, the cult body oil with celebrity fans like Victoria Beckham and The Kardashians just got natural. 

Enjoy the same scar, cellulite, and stretch mark-reducing properties, as well as a slew of natural, nourishing ingredients that help to unify skin tone, minimise redness and moisturise dehydrated skin. 

Antioxidant, vitamin-rich plant oils and extracts with anti-inflammatory benefits take pride of place in this 100 per cent natural formula. It’s lightweight, fast-absorbing, prevents moisture loss and reinforces the skin’s protective barrier too.

Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say about this natural body oil formula.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Bio-Oil Skincare Oil Natural to a panel of women aged 18 to 30 with stretch marks, scars, uneven skin tone, dehydrated skin, or who were pregnant.  

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the Bio-Oil Skincare Oil Natural.

The way it minimised scars, cellulite and redness: A number of our members had heard about the effects Bio-Oil can have on the skin, and were excited to test it out for themselves. A number of the trial members experienced a reduction in the appearance of scars, cellulite and redness with continued use. 

The fast-absorbing formula: A few members expressed hesitancy at the prospect of using an oil in their routine but they were pleasantly surprised to find that the Bio-Oil formula sank into skin immediately and didn’t leave behind any kind of greasy or sticky residue. 

How hydrating it was: A big takeaway from this trial was just how nourishing and hydrating the Bio-Oil formula was on the skin. Review Crew® members welcomed the use of a natural, lightweight and moisturising body oil into their routines.

The verdict

“I have always heard raving reviews of bio-oil, especially from my Mum, who religiously applied it when she was pregnant as it prevented stretch marks. From the first use, there was a very light scent which was really pleasant as it was not overwhelming. The application was very easy and it was lightweight so that it did not leave me feeling so oily. After using it daily I notice a considerable improvement in the texture and appearance of my skin. Redness in my skin was reduced and areas of cellulite seemed to improve after using bio-oil.”

“I have been using the product directly on a scar. I got a scar playing basketball last year from a nail scratch that didn't want to heal, so as a result I have been applying Bio Oil religiously for the last few weeks. As a result the colour of the scar has gone from a purple/red colour to a skin colour. It's hardly noticeable now and I am very impressed with the results. The oil itself is mild in scent. It doesn't really have a scent as it has that generic natural smell to it if you know what I mean. It absorbs nicely into the skin and leaves the area of my skin feeling soft and hydrated.”

“I have used Bio-Oil once before but never consistently, so this was the perfect opportunity to really test it out! I happened to (accidentally + naughtily) get badly sunburnt when this arrived in the mail, so I found that to be a good test for the feel and results of this oil. I usually mixed it in 50/50 with moisturiser and found that this created such beautiful hydration for my skin. The stretch marks that were accentuated around my hips from the sunburn have toned down so much since using the Bio-Oil and I feel like it also made quite a difference on the scarring and stretch marks on my chest as well. Definitely a good product to have on hand!!”
