    Default Bio Oil - uses other than stretch marks?

    I have a large bottle of unused bio oil that my MIL gave me. I'm not UTD or planning additional pregnancies, so I'm wondering what else I can use it for?

    Is it any good used on the face at night like a moisturising oil? Or as a body moisturiser?

    I threw my bottle out. I never used it- received it as a sample, but DF tried it one day on a scar he had on his hand- and it burned and made it worse.

    Not sure why or how it even happened, but thought I'd better not risk it..

    Might start using it on my ageing face at night, see if it helps.

    I used all mine up as a normal body moisturiser.

    I used mine on my face but it made my T section go so oily!

    I used mine up by rubbing it I it my legs after shaving.

    I used it as a bath oil as I found it too oily directly on the skin. Made me feel really soft after the bath.

    Default Bio Oil - uses other than stretch marks?

    I used it on my face as a night cream - the first few nights my skin felt amazing, then I developed this awful dermatitis type rash - it took so long to get rid of, I won't ever use bio oil again.
