Bio Oil 200ml £4.99 reduced from £19.99 @ Tesco Instore

60
Found 20th Jun 2014
While browsing aimlessly at Tesco Homeplus in Denton I've found half of a shelf of reduced Bio Oil and other scar and stretch mark reducing potions.
Bio Oil 200ml was £4.99
Bio Oil 125ml was around £3.50
There was a lot of other similar stuff from Palmers all 75% off.

Sadly not national.

I didn't get any since I don't have any scars, except for the mental one after yesterday's football. It wouldn't work on this one anyway...

Great price. Hot from me

Lucky you didn't buy any as you saved a fiver. No evidence this stuff actually works and they've been told to tone down their claims in the adverts.

I've used it for a year after having a baby and it worked. I didn't use it with first baby and stretch marks where red for years, this time used it straight away and stretch marks have turned silver and are not sore anymore

I'm glad your condition improved but it was unlikely to have been the bio oil.

Fab price! I thought I got a good deal from Costco a while back (2 x 200ml for £20+vat) this deffo beats that! I never used it after I had my children, decided to try it out 7yrs later and it's worked wonders so far.

What do you guys recommend for scars if bio-oil is useless?

Bio oil is pretty much useless. It's just another scam from the cosmetic companies and yes advertisers have been asked to town things down due to lack of evidence.

Looks like opinions are split or rather it works for some and for others it doesn't. Reminds me of homeopathy.

Are you one of the 3 people out of the whole nation who complained to ASA? Just read the article in the link and I couldn't stop myself from asking. Just curiosity with no intention to offend.

No it doesn't "work for some and not for others" Actually It doesn't work but some people think it does. there's a difference.

People's opinions are irrelevant it comes down to the evidence and Yes, it is as useless as homoeopathy.

Sadly not, but I'd be happy if my actions led to the public not spending their hard earned on something that didn't work.

magic oil

Just use almond oil, coconut oil or olive oil. I stopped buying silly beauty products years ago, can't go wrong with those 3 oils, rose water, honey, sugar, salt and a bar of soap, thats all I use on my skin now days way cheaper and no more blocked pores and blackheads.

Sugar.? White Death!

Homeopathy has been proven to have no intrinsic benefit in several studies. There is a split only in opinions, not in facts.

Good deal, but doubt this works either.

No luck here, used it for a few months and it did nowt. Supposedly scars and stretch marks are helped by plain old moisturiser if you target them soon enough. Seems like expensive oily crud to me.

Homeopathy doesn't work for the brainwashed masses, especially our so called doctors who haven't tried it but have just been told it doesn't work. Reminds me of the film Idiocracy where in the future everyone is blindly following an energy drink manufacrurer beleiving that its product should replace water and the masses were even using the energy drink to grow crops.

Homeopathy works but different to allopathic medicines

Snake Oil

Show me a double blind that shows Homeopathy does anything then we will talk. Science not opinion on 'medicine'.

Palmers coco butter worked amazing on my stretchmarks would highly recommend some people can't go the smell tho x

****. Homeopathy does not do anything. For conditions that are affected significantly by placebo (mental health, pain come to mind) it "works" on that.
On the other hand there are some excellent, fairly recently scientifically supported, allopathic medicines. Particularly when it comes to botanicals.

NO IT DOESN'T!!! There are NO scientific studies that support homeopathy. There are plenty, however, that discredit it. To put in perspective, homeopathic remedies contain an 'active' ingredient that has been diluted to such an extent that if - for illustration purposes - there was a ball of water fitting between the earth and the moon, the 'active' ingredient would consist of ONE MOLECULE! Also, in order to make it 'effective', it has to hit several times on some kind of special book. If it works for some, it is purely down to the placebo affect - now THAT has been scientifically studied.

how do you get rid of blocked pores and blackhead



oil cleansing method and using face scrubs of olive oil and salt or honey and sugar.

@ johnnystorm I reckon it works just great. I had a 31 year old scar on my knee. I started using Bio oil on it and it is half the size within a month.

Course it does, the placebo effect is well proven. Beyond that, nope. But whatever, waste your money.

Edit: And seriously, our 'so called doctors' have 5+ years of training and I bet you visit them for almost any health issue you have. But the 10 minutes a day you spend reading the daily mail makes you better informed I bet.

I used Boots' Scar Reduction Serum on a couple of scars I had, it worked well and noticably softened and lightened the colour of them. For £7.99 I think it's worth a go for anyone who needs help for that kind of thing.

Paula's Choice Review Looks like snake oil to me! I think similar, and cheaper, products most likely have the same effect as this. Bio Oil is a bit like Red Bull, only popular due to heavy marketing.

I'd be very grateful to learn more about your beauty/skin care regime. I've long believed that there's a cheaper and better way to care for my skin and hair but I don't know how. Please show me how you use the different products you've highlighted including how and when you use each. Many thanks in advance.

National???

Hot from me...

Hot for me. I have dry skin and I like the way it makes my skin oily. What is the best oil for stretch marks?

I'm not keen on homeopathy but I've nothing against people exploring alternative, complimentary therapies if they feel it helps as a positive attitude can work wonders.

However, I am against homeopaths telling patients to not take their prescribed medication though as that's dangerous and unethical.

There is no such thing as 'allopathic' medicine. The fact you used that word indicates you are a homeopathy believer. Homeopathy only 'works' due to the placaebo effect, as has been shown in every independent double-blind trial ever performed.

If it worked then the NHS would be prescribing magic water to everyone and saving 50% of their total costs. But they don't, do they.....because it's childish nonsense invented by a single person over 200 years ago with no evidence to back it up (and which goes against all known laws of physics, chemistry and biology). Randi sums it up nicely.
