what the I just got this in Superdrug 60ml for £6.90 and that was "25% off"!!! its £10.99 now though for 200ml??
#5
I think it is cheaper in homebargains , possibly about £4 . I cant confirm without going to check and am not discrediting this deal but if anybody has one nearby , might be worth a quick look first.

What £4 for a 200ml bottle??. I think no way when Boots sell 200ml for £19.99. Maybe £4 for the 60ml bottle is more believable

Don't know. I might well have a looksy at JL store in Oxford St.

Does this actually work? I can't find one well performed clinical trial to demonstrate it does work so I have voted cold.

I'm going by personal reccomendation, and magically its listed here on HUKD, on amazon reviews seems good too. Its worth a shot personally Id rather waste the money trying than not trying at all.
#13
The one in Home Bargains is much cheaper but it is not the real bio-oil.

It's the same colour and same style box but it's a copy - just like the one in the £1 shops.

need this

But I would rather to see good clinical trials of a product which have been published in respectable scientific journal shows that it proven to work. I rather not waste my money on products which have no evidence to back up their claims. Also anecdotal evidence is normally very poor form of evidence. Also just because it is listed on here and amazon doesn't mean a thing. Boot sell homeopathic "medicine" but it still doesn't work. So to me this has all the signs of a pseudo-science. Also when company make claims that their products work they should also produce the evidence.
#16
Thanks kvee!

Ordered from JL £8.42 for 200ml and free delivery for orders over £30!

HOT!

BTW you can get it delivered to participating stores for free

Each to their own then, unfortunate if your not willing to give it a go, ive only just started to using this today. Will see how it goes. I have found something on it, although not sure if its proof enough, anyone can post information like this on the internet.

I ordered some of this the other week when it was £10.99 TBH I am not 100% about this, previously I purchased some from Boots £18.99 and the stuff from Amazon appears to be a lot lighter in colour and very watery. Could this be older stock? Although the product is within the expiry date.

what a daft reason to vote cold. This is for deals not for whether you can find clinical trial evidence or not:whistling:
#20
Looks like typical Amazon price hopping again. Now up to £10.99
As stated above, still available from JL for £8.42:
http://www.johnlewis.com/230446498/Product.aspx?source=14798
Though free delivery is only on orders > £30. Can be reserved for local pick up I think.

No this "clinical trials" are very poor. First the research was commissioned by Union Swiss the manufacturers of bio-oil so their may be a conflict of interests. Secondly it does not say what scientific journal it was published in probably because it hasn't been published in one this another cause for concern. The next point very few people took part in the trials so the results do not have a statistical significance. Fourth point was there a control group or a placebo and what were their results. Fifth point was the study double blinded? I do not think so as this is not mentioned. These are few of the problems with trials. The internet is great but there sure is a lot of bad science out there. Also i would give it a go if they had any evidence to back up their claims.

Why is it a daft reason to vote it cold? In science generally if you make a claim you should have evidence to back up your claim and with this product their is no evidence that it actually works so why would you waste money on a unproven product? If I quote Carl Sagan "extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence".

So would buy a product of me if i had a liquid in a bottle and I say "you will look younger if you rub this into the skin" even though i had no evidence that it does work?

Your right but given the product claims to do something magical one can only hope it works, yes im willing to waste money on it, scars be gone!
#24
yay, back to £8.42

have a few friends that use this - say it works wonders, and another with a fairly bad scar on her leg - said it lightened the colour slightly but not much more. Maybe depends on how badly affected the scar is?

I probably shouldn't bother wasting my time to point out this site is about the deals, and not the product. Carry on.

I have no problem voting deals hot if I don't like the product such as dvds for films I hate. But in my mind when a product has no evidence to work in my mind that is a bad deal. For example say boots started selling this for one pence i would still vote it cold due to it does not work.
#27
This is a great deal
My wife uses it (as pregnant) and is happy with it

Surely we are voting on the price rather than the products benefits?

Wow homeopathic lager I bet that is seriously strong.:-D

Never tried it myself but if it`s £19.99p in Boots and the deal is for £8.42p then it`s hot for me, clinical trials or no clinical trials!

I think it is cheaper in homebargains , possibly about £4 . I cant confirm without going to check and am not discrediting this deal but if anybody has one nearby , might be worth a quick look first.


I'm guessing this is the cheaper remake, made to look just like bio oil, think it's called re-gen or something similar. its in my local one at about £4.

NHS plastic surgeon recommended this so worth giving it a try! heat and rep!

You vote hot or cold for the price, not whether you think it works or not. Don't bother voting if the deal doesn't appeal to you. It does work by the way, I've been using it for months & its faded scars & blemishes.
You voted cold because you don't think it works, so in that case you have no right to vote either way unless you have actually used it, going by your reasons for voting.

If a product claims to do something and doesn't produce evidence for this then i will vote cold. If someone put up snake oil i will vote no matter what the price is. Secondly you say "not whether you think it works or not" there is no evidence for it to work. Thirdly you say it does work and you have been using it and how do you know that the scars will not faded on their own? or due to other reasons you don't. So anecdotal evidence is not the best way to understand if something works or not. Wiki has a good page anecdotal evidence http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anecdotal_evidence.

Also Chaser77puts up a good argument here as well http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/319600/bio-oil-200ml-just-12-99-1-99-deliv

Also this claims to have PurCellin Oil. What is this? As it does not have any scientific meaning.
#37
John Lewis sold out and as a result, price back up on Amazon.
#38
And back down again!
#39
Yup, back to £8.42 at Amazon. Please can a mod un-expire?

To those who're saying that you don't know if it works but you're going to try it anyway think about it this way. You've come up with the product of the century - you can make people look younger. You can make a wrinkly tired old woman look and feel like a teenager. You've all but created the fountain of youth in a bottle! The stuff really does work. It's miraculous! It's the biggest thing since the wheel!

Obviously the logical thing to do would be not to get exhaustive clinical trials done by any testing agency anywhere that wants to do them to prove scientifically beyond all doubt to the entire world that it works. How stupid would that be? You're obviously much better off not getting it tested so that no one can refute your claims. After all if you did get all the tests done and proved it to everyone what would happen then? People would be willing to pay what for a single bottle? £100? £1000? £100000? Why on earth would a company want to make that kind of money? Why would a company want to get rich beyond anyone's wildest dreams?
