I have now used Bio Oil For Stretch Marks through 3 pregnancies (all within 4 years) and would not hesitate to recommend it. I believe I am prone to stretch marks as I have them on my thighs from my teen years. In addition, my mother and grandmother both have many marks from their pregnancies. I started using Bio-Oil as soon as I found out I was pregnant (between 4-8 weeks) with all of my pregnancies. I typically use it 2x per day (morning + night) all over my belly, lower back, hips, and thighs. I went through 3-4 full-size bottles throughout each pregnancy.
It absorbs well – I’ve never had an issue with it getting on clothes, bed sheets, etc. and the smell/aroma is minimal. I’m fairly sensitive to smells, especially during pregnancy, but I never had an issue with this oil.
For full disclosure, I gained between 20-30 lbs each pregnancy, my babies were on the smaller side, and I delivered between 3-6 weeks early with each. So, take my review for what it is. That being said, I do feel that the stretch marks on my thighs improved. They were quite old (about 8-10 years+) and had already faded to white, but they are always much less noticeable after using Bio-Oil. I’m not sure if this is solely due to just being better hydrated OR if the Bio-Oil really had an impact on old scars.Promised Review By Kierstin C
