For a long time, Bio-Oil was the accessible beauty secret that connoisseurs would use to diminish the appearance of scars and stretch marks or give skin an extra dose of hydration. It’s a favorite among celebrities — reality royalty like the Kardashians (especially Kim) and royal royalty like Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle credit this product with keeping their skin free of stretch marks. But they weren’t the first to discover it; celebrities over 50 like Kristin Chenoweth have trusted it to give their skin a healthy glow for decades.
Then came TikTok and a whole new generation of fans launched it into beauty stardom for a second run. The celebrity-loved oil now has over 43,000 verified five-star reviews on Amazon, with shoppers raving about its many uses. That’s why when a sale happens, we feel morally obligated to shout from the rooftops. Here we go: Bio-oil it has dropped to just $17 on Amazon (it was $24). If you’re like me, you want to reinvent your skin routine for the New Year – and Bio-Oil is the perfect place to start.
So what’s all the hype about? Bio-Oil’s popularity derives in large part from the fact that it really works.. It’s formulated with a variety of oils, including Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Chamomile, Sunflower, and Lavender, to create an incredibly powerful skincare product that stimulates collagen production, which creates greater skin elasticity (read: wrinkles diminished!). More collagen can also help reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks and dark spots.
All of these oils also provide some serious hydration—another great way to further reduce dark marks, scars, and stretch marks. The formula does not clog pores, so people with oily, dry or combination skin can use Bio-Oil without worry. For those with recent scarring, say from a C-section (or stretch marks from the pregnancy itself), Bio-Oil can help with the itchiness as it soothes the skin.
Kristen Chenoweth said Prevention she uses it around her eyes and on her laugh lines. “I want people to know this. I love Bio-Oil,” she said. “If you’re consistent, it’s huge.”
Kardashian agrees with Chenoweth. “It just makes my skin glow and has so many benefits,” Kim said. “If you have a scar or stretch marks, just massage the oil into the area twice a day.” She said the formula was a “lifesaver” and she would “apply it like crazy” during her pregnancy.
Don’t want to take the celebrities’ word for it? We’ll let some of your other biggest fans tell you how awesome this stuff is. One 71-year-old reviewer wrote, “Bio-Oil is the BEST skincare product on the market. I use it twice a day, in the morning and before bed. The little lines are gone. My skin is sooo soft and seems to glow. A doctor recommended this to one of my friends, who told me about it. I bought several bottles as gifts.”
One reviewer calls Bio-Oil amazing. “I use these things ALL over my body,” she wrote. “It’s great – it’s lightweight so I don’t feel like I’ve just showered in a deep fryer. I can use it on my face without worrying about it breaking out (as I often do when using coconut oil) and it leaves my skin soft and glowing… It sinks in fast so I don’t leave greasy fingerprints everywhere. I can’t stress enough how good this is.”
One reviewer shared, “I was bitten by a dog last summer and nothing was working to get rid of the scar. I also had a scar from a scrape on my knee as well as chickenpox scars and surgery scars on my wrist. This oil seems to be fading all of them!”
