And the Winner Is: Bio Oil Skincare Oil

Your body undergoes a remarkable transformation during pregnancy in order to safely house and nourish baby and support their development. And with that rapid change often come stretch marks. Tiger stripes, love lines, mommy medals—whatever you call them, they’re a token of the incredible ability you have to create new life. But if you’re eager to reduce their appearance, body oil is a smart bet. Bio-Oil was introduced in 1987 as a ground-breaking innovation. Today, it’s said to be the world’s leading scar and stretch mark product, clinically shown to improve the appearance of pregnancy stretch marks.

What We Love

  • This revered formula—seriously, it has cult-favorite status—uses vitamins, plant extracts and oils to hydrate, strengthen and soothe your skin, helping to reduce itchiness caused by stretching and make your skin appear more smooth and even in tone. There’s no getting rid of stretch marks, as they’re permanent, but you can soften their

  • appearance; in lab trials, 92 percent of participants saw an improvement in stretch marks

  • It contains vitamin A oil, which boosts collagen production and skin renewal, which in turn increases skin elasticity; vitamins E, which supports healthy skin and prevents aging; and plant-based oils (chamomile, sunflower and lavender), which have anti-inflammatory properties

  • The oil has a non-greasy, lightweight feel and is absorbed quickly, leaving your skin feeling soft, hydrated and smelling amazing (people tend to be picky about fragrance in their skincare, but we found this to smell divine)
