All Bio Oil Discounts, Offers and Sale - July 2019
Don't most people on this site call this stuff snake oil? And available in the poundshop? Real deal or snake oil? FIGHT!!!
This stuff honestly doesn't work
The UK version has a different fragrance (much nicer) and slight different orange colour. Texture of the product and usage is the same. From manufacturer Bio-Oil is distributed under licence from Union Swiss, the brand owners based in South Africa and it has come to our attention that Bio-Oil which is intended for sale in South Africa only has been resold in The United Kingdom through retailers and online businesses not authorised by Union Swiss to resell the product. The only retailers and online businesses that are authorised to resell Bio-Oil in the UK are businesses that have purchased the product directly from ourselves, Keyline Brands Ltd. We are the authorised exclusive distribution partner for the UK for Union Swiss. The South African Bio-Oil stock that has recently been sold by unauthorised retailers & online websites in the UK is not legally traded within the UK market. This is due to the lack of traceability and control we have when not sold via ourselves. Our distribution agreement with Union Swiss ensures that the integrity of the total supply chain is maintained from a product quality, storage, transport and traceability perspective, all of which are governed by the EU and UK cosmetic directives. Whilst products that originate from our South African manufacturing facility are of a medicinal grade quality it cannot be guaranteed that Bio-Oil sold outside of the authorised distribution channels will be stored correctly or not tampered with. It is for this reason that Bio-Oil is only legally distributed through ourselves. An easy way to check the integrity of UK and Ireland product is on the outer packaging where it will state ‘distributed under license from Union-Swiss by Keyline Brands Ltd.’ Without this it is feasible that the product could not have been transported or stored correctly and possibly it may have been tampered with. Therefore please only buy product from the UK with this distribution reference on it to ensure guaranteed quality.
Hi, is UK version much better? Thanks I just ordered and now collect. The box shows South African stock. I browse the Lloyds shop and all others on shelves the same from South African. Anyway where could one get stocks from uk?
Lloyds had other offers too
They also sell in china so their products are tested on animals
I'd get Palmer's skin therapy oil over this, or a more natural product. This is just cheap liquid parrafin with a small amount of oils added and plenty of additives.
I prefer snake oil
Brilliant, thank you. Don't forget 4.8%quidco and either 20% off any price SHOPAGAIN20(thanks to Hannalydon for posting) or £5 off if spend over £20, ONLINE20:)
Same price in my local chemist
What are they used for?
Life saver, partner has been moaning at me for a while to get this but it's so expensive :P
Is this stuff any better than good old fashioned baby oil? Some folks I know say it's the business.
This is also discounted in Superdrug frequently
This is discounted every couple of months or so in Boots.
THANKS10 for 10% off £35 spend.
just ordered for £9.99 delivered to store and very happy with that price for 200ml!
Could be because I posted this over 3 weeks ago so the code may have expired.
why doesn't the discount code SHOPAGAIN20. work?
125ml with discount is cheap though better value to pay £9.99 in store for the 200ml. I grudge not getting the online discount when I know it's in stock locally. Thems the breaks. :)
notice how on their TV advert they never show the scars or stretch marks ?
This doesn't help with stretch marks in pregnancy at all.
During my wife's pregnancy my stretch marks got considerably worse.
This was 8.99 yesterday with 10% off for members only! Just purchased one! :)
Brilliant stuff, helped massively with a scar on my foot when I severed a muscle (just another diy statistic). Also saw it help with my sisters scar after having a bunion sorted
You stay classy Kareem!
Doesn't this usually get called snake oil on here? I know £ land do their own version Only 40ml No clue if any of this stuff works but I tried the £land one and just felt like rubbing cooking or tanning oil in. Admittedly don't have stretch marks or used frequently as just felt greasy. Might work well as lube though!
Amazing price if you can get it. I would recommend anyone to buy this if pregnant or to buy it for any pregnant friends!
Only a tiny bit goes so far- small bottle lasted over 6 mths here.
Good find op, just bought for my tummy tuck that I had done yesterday, won't use it for four weeks, but I've heard it's very good for scars, bargain for 200 ml
The last time I bought it on line it was on offer in the store also, but I don't go past there regularly to check. Thanks for pointing that out though.
This is basically a glorified and heavily marketed moisturiser. Cheap price for this product but there's not really anything unique about it and no reason to believe it can significantly affect scars, marks etc. People seem to forget that time is one of the biggest healers. :)
I bought 1 instore this morning for that price. So maybe not web exclusive?
If you're willing to spend £6 on this. At least look into a 100% cold pressed oils... In fact basic sweet almond oil will work better and cost less and like someone rightly said before, the movement is actually what's important
There's a ton of methods for dealing with scars (acne in my case). I've tried Vaculifters (they're suction devices that massage the skin, bone and apparently help to rebuild collagen, Dermarollers (bit of a nightmare, you have to use numbing cream but it's still not fun), even at-home laser devices like Palovia and Philips' Reaura. Some hardy souls use diabetic needles to break up scars. Topicals such as Bio Oil or Retin-A apparently help remodelling, but I've never had any miracle skin recovery occur. My skin probably looks better but it definitely doesn't look "cured".
i think the problem is that people pop it on in the hope that itll 'magic' the scar/ or whatever, away, like a mysterious balm or ointment. currently nursing my boy through bruns scars, ive learnt that the real goodness is in the quality of the massage, not necessarily the ointment, which makes the difference. ive tried Bio oil, infact i bought it recently, but struggled to get a good quality massage with it, so for me, i didnt get on with it. i prefer a good aqueous cream tbh.
I tend to use these oils as my "Oil Cleansing Method" once or twice a week. This one may be worth looking at if you don't want to spend big bucks. Osiris Avise (think that was a Lidl brand??) Recovery Oil. Reviews on Amazon are pretty good! https://www.amazon.co.uk/product-reviews/B007A1CG4K/ref=cm_cr_dp_see_all_summary?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1&sortBy=helpful I've seen the Osiris Avise oil in £1 shops, Home Bargains, Savers and the like. Had a bottle put away in my bathroom cabinet.
That stuff doesn't even work
Down to £7.40 now
its actually the 115ml size (is that even a regular size?) in High Wycombe branch
Got 2 bottles in asda Lancaster today ay £3.50. Thanks Op
Hot stuff...use it to remove scratches off paintwork.
Cheap car fuel
Very good price for this. Well spotted.
In primark its £6 for 125ml
Only 15 left in stock (more on the way) so not really expired
No it was nothing to do with the surgeon or the op! And no I'm skin didn't heal natural as with any scar it will always leaving a mark behind but from my experience bio-oil left my once very dark visible scars practically invisible!
Thanks...love this website!! Just bought 3 bottles of 200ml bio for £34! 3 for 2 offer applies to 60ml, 120ml and 200ml bottles in Boots!! Thanks op great find!!
If you're going to get stretch marks you'll get them, I tends to be hereditary. I used palmers cocoa butter religiously for my first pregnancy and got none. I've barely used any this pregnancy and so far still have none. Even though I started out at 7 stone, have gained 2 and a half stone and am measuring 40 weeks and I've still got 1 month to go! Moisturising generally can help with the itching no you get from stretching but any will do!
Hands down.. Who van say this product actually worked for then?
Have you ever seen a duck with stretch marks?
Very true, but my wife has used it for years and three pregnancies later she hasn't got any stretch marks. Last baby was 12 pounds in weight!
Ah sorry didn't realise she still had chicken pox. In that case yes as Saint_abroad already said, best thing you can do at the moment is leave it alone to help prevent scarring.
125ml is £6.89 on amazon
I like Bio-Oil. I have a very slight scar from a fall when I was a child. It didn't bother me much but I now can't see it at all. A lot of people also swear by Rosehip Hibiscus oil as a remedy for scars.
Hot if you like Bio-Oil. Oh, and chickenpox should be left well alone if still active. Worrying about it now is premature. Giving your sister a pamphlet about laser treatment will just frighten.
Only £2 in aldi
Link goes to a product that is currently unavailable :(
£4 in home bargains
Same price at lloyds pharmacy http://www.lloydspharmacy.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/AjaxCatalogSearchView?storeId=10151&catalogId=11101&langId=44&pageSize=24&beginIndex=0&sType=SimpleSearch&resultCatEntryType=2&showResultsPage=true&pageView=image&searchTerm=bio%20oil&searchBtn=#http%3A%2F%2Fwww.lloydspharmacy.com%2Fwebapp%2Fwcs%2Fstores%2Fservlet%2FAjaxCatalogSearchResultView%3FcatGroupId%3D%26maxPrice%3D%26showResultsPage%3Dtrue%26productType%3D%26langId%3D44%26beginIndex%3D0%26sType%3DSimpleSearch%26pageSize%3D24%26resultCatEntryType%3D2%26sortColumn%3Dprice%26catalogId%3D11101%26pageView%3Dimage%26searchTerm%3Dbio%2Boil%26minPrice%3D%26sortType%3Dasc%26storeId%3D10151%26%26%26identifier%3D1449513821029
Mrs thinks that is cheaper in Primark. She buys it in - store, probably £8.99 every time.. I'll have to check.
It's still £9.99 not £13.98 for non prime I don't know why it appears that way on the title. I'm sorry for the confusion everyone. How can I correct this? Can someone delete that bit pls? TIA
