This is a product I've been contemplating buying for a while and I finally took the plunge before summer started about 3 and a half months ago, ie-end of March. I was intrigued about it because of all the positive reviews and the really affordable price confused me and I didn't know what to expect. Any skincare oils in the market other than this one is expensive and quite worth the investment if your skin really needs it but I hadn't come across something more for the body before that also promised of actual good results. I first picked it out with the intention to use it on three main problems I have with my body - uneven skin tone from hyper pigmentation, weird tan lines from wearing certain types of footwear and scars(mainly childhood and some from ingrown hairs). Now I must mention that not all of them were huge in size and some scars that I was treating were quite tiny but they still bothered me collectively.
I started using it thrice a week before going to bed without having to overdo it because I was still testing it out at this point. The box does mention using it everyday and twice a day but I just figured I'll start slow. The oil is of a very light consistency and has a very pleasant smell without being overpowering. It looks orange in the bottle but comes out totally clear on the skin. The best part is it gets soaked up into the skin pretty quickly, I'd say within 10 minutes and without leaving the area greasy. I would still not consider using it during the day, if I was putting on nicer, going out clothes just in case but there has been absolutely no staining on my night clothes. As I kept using it for a month, I immediately noticed the hyper pigmented areas got a shade lighter. It was a very gradual change but it was noticeable after a while.
I got positive results with the uneven tanning on my feet and toes as well around the one month mark. The scars took quite a while to show a difference. After 3 months of using it, I think I noticed the smaller scars getting significantly lighter but not completely gone yet. As with a certain childhood scar that I have, I don't think it has done much for that (yet) however I'll update if it does end up working on it. I didn't originally buy it for my face and since I have oily skin I was quite scared to try it on. I used it for a couple of nights in the beginning and I got two breakouts on my chin. Now I don't have acne prone skin except the occasional once a month or two. I assumed it was the oil or a new BB cream that I was testing out at the time. I stopped using both on my face and the breakouts went away. I haven't used it on my face ever since because I don't want to take the risk and if you have oily skin, maybe you shouldn't use it if you see any unnatural acne.
The real test came when I slammed hard into metal(typical me) and hurt my knee. My sensitive skin being extra prone to bruising, immediately turned my knee into a purple blob. I was very annoyed at this point because that would mean no wearing dresses or skirts for a while. The colour was deepening everyday and as a person who bruises very easily, the average time it takes for my bruises to heal on its own is around 3 weeks(I'm not even kidding). So I thought I'll just put some bio oil on to see if it can help. I was shocked when I woke up the next morning with half of my bruise literally gone and without the awful yellowness it usually leaves behind. I used it every night since then and it healed my bruise in 5 days which was the most incredible thing I've ever experienced with my skin. Overall, I am very pleased with this product for body scars and hyper pigmentation. I would personally never use it on my face and if you have acne prone skin maybe you should carefully test it out before going all in! Would I be repurchasing? Yes, I absolutely will. Now, I use it on my elbows, knees and nails as cuticle oil along with my problem areas. Although there has been some controversies about this because it contains Mineral Oil as an ingredient, however Vaseline & numerous other beauty products have it as well and I have never had any issues with them. It has made my skin feel and look wonderful.
