is bio-oil any good for stretch marks?


hello there lovely ladies,

just wondering if you have used bio-oil during your pregnancy (the orange one), and if it worked? I dont have any stretch marks yet, with it being my first pregnancy and not having put on any weight yet, but i put it on every day anyway, just wondering if its any good..

Thank you xxxxx

I've heared it's good but can't imagine how it's any better than cheaper oils and creams to be honest. I love the Avent spray oil...couldn't afford Bio Oil I'm afraid. I have stretchmarks from my previous pregnancies but they have faded now....nothing will make them go any paler than they already are. They're my beautiful marks of pregnancy anyway to show how I've carried my babies

Yeah, it does itch and is uncomfy too when your skin starts to stretch, especially the big ones


Use it as a preventative too, massage into boobies, belly, bum and top of thighs after your shower or bath while you're still slightly damp and it will lock in more of the moisture. It will keep your skin hydrated, soft and supple....as will any good body lotion so you could alternate so you don't use all your expensive stuff up before you may really need it. I use a body lotion in the morning and an oil at night

I've used it all the way through - I've got LOADS of stretch marks but the don't itch! If you've got a Home Bargains near you I think it's 4.99 for the little bottle in there

Thought I'd go and have a nosey and found this

http://www.fragrancemad.com/bio-oil-...FUwb3god5kQomQ

looks a bargain as it's free postage too. Has anyone bought from there? Supposed to be good for reducing scars too isn't it? I have a few scars on my legs and face too so wouldn't mind having a try...nothing ventured, nothing gained

I use it - the only strech marks I've got are ones on my hips from where my weight yo-yo'ed a bit a couple of years ago. I know some people hate the smell, but I think it's lovely!

Bo Oil was recommended to me from someone at work so I went out and got some, made sure that I used it every evening since I started to show at about 16 weeks. At about 27 weeks I got my first strech mark but it did not help me at all. I kept going with it untill this week when they got really bad and putting Bio Oil on them made them go bright red and really horrible -I have been using Niva cream for dry skin this week and the sudden difference is unbelievable, they are not as red and don't itch. I would not use Bi Oil again but I have heard of people that say it is wonderful!

Nothing works on strechmarks so it's just a rip off! I'd say find a nice moisturiser to help with the ichty ones and don't waste money xxx
