Bio Oil review: The $10 oil celebs swear by for scars and stretch marks is worth the hype

If you're tired of looking at the dark spots, scars or stretch marks on your face and/or body, Bio-Oil may have caught your eye. It's the affordable beauty product that celebs like Kristin Chenoweth, Halle Berry and Kate Middleton swear by for fixing everything from dry skin and uneven skin tone to fine lines and wrinkles. After hearing just how many A-listers (and 71,000+ Amazon shoppers) are fans of the oil, I knew I had to give it a try for myself — and I’m so glad I did! Here's my review.

Kristin Chenoweth, Halle Berry and Kate Middleton and I have something in common: We're all fans of this this hydrating skincare oil (along with 71,000+ five-star Amazon reviewers).

The powerful formula includes a blend of oils, including vitamin A, vitamin E, lavender, rosemary, chamomile and sunflower seed, that work together to hydrate and soothe skin while boosting collagen production. This can lead to greater skin elasticity, which helps reduce the look of scars, stretch marks and dark patches. The lightweight, skin-loving oil can be all over, from your face to your feet.

I first started using Bio-Oil a few years ago to help lighten up a scar that I had on my hip. I was so happy with the results, I started using it all over my face and body every time I get out of the shower. That scar is basically non-existent now! The oil also has helped with melasma and dark spots that I had on my face, lightening them up after just a few weeks of use.

While the oil hasn’t erased my stretch marks (yet), they're definitely less noticeable, and I believe my consistent use of this has prevented new ones from forming. Plus my skin feels softer when I use it. I also love that while it’s an oil, it doesn’t feel greasy or make a mess — the lightweight formula seeps into my skin quickly. And a little bit of product goes a long way.

People of all ages are fans of the oil. Over 71,000 Amazon shoppers have given it a perfect five-star rating and a No.1 bestseller status. One fan said it was a “magical skin oil [that] replenishes aging skin.” They added, “Bio-Oil soaks into the skin and makes my 70-year-old skin look younger. Works the same way on my face. Youthful glow.”

Another raved, “Best body oil ever. It kept me from getting stretch marks during both of my pregnancies, and it’s keeping my skin beyond moist. I’m 45 and elasticity reduces wrinkles. I’ve used this daily for 20 years.”

A third wrote, "This is the absolute best for sensitive skin and leaves your skin feeling smooth! The scent is really nice as well. It’s very good for fading scars and evening out skin tone."

Another fan talked about how it improved the look of their acne scars and stretch marks quickly: "I bought the smallest size of this a few years ago and it got rid of most of my acne scars within two months. I used it again for the stretch marks on my belly from weight loss and the stretch marks have been consistently going away for two weeks, can’t wait to see the three-month difference."

Don’t just take our word for it, give the bestselling skin oil a try for yourself for just $10 a bottle.
