What It Is
You can rub Bio Oil on your skin anywhere you are having minor skin problems. It is formulated to work on dry, patchy skin, on wrinkles, on dark spots and other minor blemishes. It is also supposed to help with more serious skin problems, such as your scars, stretch marks and some skin conditions go away or lessen in appearance.
If you have psoriasis, you likely know how awful the scars can look and how quickly they can cover much of your skin. Rubbing Bio Oil in the scars could lessen how obvious they are and in some cases, make them go away completely.
The secret to Bio Oil is the same chemical that ducks use to keep their feathers waterproof. That chemical protects their feathers and skin from the effects of water, and it can protect your skin from harmful irritants and contaminants as well. But it doesn’t make your skin extra dry,the same way it wouldn’t dry out a duck. It may be waterproof, but that doesn't mean it can’t hydrate.
Because it is an oil, it naturally seeps into your pores and lubricates your skin. This helps get rid of some wrinkles and heals the damage caused by your skin drying out. Of course you would not be getting the same intensity of the chemical that ducks have, but you get to enjoy some of the same benefits.
Does It Work?
The effectiveness of this product is really difficult to measure. On the one hand, you have research that says the ingredients should work great. You also have a lot of consumers saying the oil worked great for them. On the other hand, you have a ton of consumers who decry the product and regret ever having bought it.
So who do you believe when there are such opposing views and personal accounts about the product? The answer is that you have to accept both sets of people as correct. This is a product that can get rid of scars and can make your skin look and feel better. But it is also a product that may not work for you.
For some people, this is going to work, and for others it may not just be unable to help them, but it may also cause an allergic reaction or irritation. That’s the opposite end of the spectrum and a far cry from what the product was designed to do, but it is the reality of the situation. Some people just aren’t going to be helped by Bio Oil beyond some basic hydration for their skin.
But those who it has helped have plenty of great things to say about the product. It has been beneficial in getting rid of acne scars, stretch marks, dark spots on the skins, wrinkles and much more. Many consumers also note that this oil is a great hydrator. A lot of skin problems are caused by a lack of hydration in the skin, and this oil really gets into the skin cells and replenishes their water supply without seeping back out.
It is so effective that only a couple drops are needed on the target area. That means a whole bottle can last you for a while. That’s great considering the product only costs $19.99 for a 4.2 oz. bottle. It is every bit as effective as much more expensive oils, so even if it doesn’t work for you, you won’t be spending much money on it to see for yourself.
Is It Worth Your Money?
We’ve already said that some people aren’t going to see much benefit from this product, so is it really worth their hard-earned cash? We would say that since it doesn’t cost much, then anyone who wants to get help for their scars, marks and general skin problems should just get a bottle and try it for themselves. Just put a few drops on the desired area and see how your skin reacts.
It is possible you will have a mild allergic reaction, so don’t use it on a very sensitive area at first, like around the eyes. You will likely notice right away how great it is at hydrating your skin, but you want to give it a little time before you use it a second time, just to judge how your skin reacts.
For everyone else though, this is a must buy. So many people have tried countless other skin care products that claim to get rid of scars, stretch marks and various other imperfections in the skins, all with no success. Then they try Bio Oil and they are amazed at the results they experience. It often works where nothing else seems to and provides the kind of results people are hoping for. May have reported seeing their stretch marks, acne scars and psoriasis scars go away completely, especially with repeated use of the Bio Oil.
- Works great for those it can help
- Treats a wide variety of skin problems
- Costs very little when compared to the competition
- It won't work for everyone
- Some people experience an allergic reaction
We have to stress how not everyone is going to see great results with this product. Even if it doesn’t take away your scars or blemishes, it can provide excellent hydration. But you do need to be careful about whether this will cause an allergic reaction. If you have tried other products to no avail, Bio Oil may be the remedy you are looking for. It has already worked for many other consumers, and it is reasonably likely it will help you too.
