Kristin Chenoweth's affordable secret for glowing skin is on sale for just $10

For a long time, Bio-Oil was the affordable beauty secret those in-the-know would use to diminish the look of scars and stretch marks or give skin an extra dose of hydration. It's a fave among celebs — reality royalty like the Kardashians (especially Kim) and actual royalty like Kate Middleton credit this product with keeping their skin free of stretch marks. But they weren't the first to discover it; over-50 celebrities like Kristin Chenoweth have been relying on it to give their skin a healthy glow for decades. You can try it for yourself at a sweet discount — it's just $10 (down from $14) now at Amazon.

Used to diminish wrinkles, scars and stretch marks, it's packed with goodness like vitamins A and E, chamomile, sunflower and lavender oils.

Why is this a good deal?

The celeb-loved oil now has over 76,000 verified five-star reviews at Amazon, with shoppers raving about its many uses. That's why when a sale happens, we feel morally obligated to shout it from the rooftops. So, here we go: Bio-Oil is down to just $10 on Amazon (was $14). If you're like me, you want to reinvent your skin routine for spring — and Bio-Oil is the perfect place to start. We rarely see it priced much lower than this, so if you'd like to get your skin summer-ready in advance, now is the time to pounce!

Why do I need this?

So, what's all the hype about? Bio-Oil's popularity stems largely from the fact that it actually works. It's formulated with a variety of oils, including vitamin A, vitamin E, chamomile, sunflower and lavender, to create an incredibly powerful skin-care product that stimulates collagen production, which creates greater skin elasticity (read: diminished wrinkles!). More collagen can also help reduce the look of scars, stretch marks and dark patches.

All those oils also provide some serious hydration — another great way to further reduce dark marks, scars and stretch marks. The formula won't clog your pores, so people with oily, dry or combination skin can use Bio-Oil without worry. For those with fresh scars, say from a C-section (or stretch marks from the pregnancy itself), Bio-Oil can help with itchiness as it smooths out the skin.

Kristen Chenoweth told Prevention that she uses it around her eyes and on her laugh lines. "I want people to know about it. I love Bio-Oil,” she said. "If you’re consistent, it’s huge."

Kim Kardashian agrees with Chenoweth. "It just makes my skin glow, and it has so many benefits," Kim said. "If you have a scar or stretch marks, you just massage the oil onto the area two times a day." She said the formula was a "lifesaver" and she would "apply it like crazy" during her pregnancies.

If you'd like a less starry take on the product, our reviewer here at Yahoo Life tried it for herself, too — and dubbed Bio-Oil "worth the hype."

What reviewers say

We'll let some of Bio-Oil's other biggest fans tell you just how amazing this stuff is, too. One 71-year-old reviewer wrote, "Bio-Oil is the BEST skin product on the market. I use it twice a day, in the morning and before I go to bed. Small lines have disappeared. My skin is very smooth and seems to glow. A doctor recommended this to one of my friends, who told me about it. I have bought several bottles as gifts."

One eloquent user called the oil a "symphony of hydration and nourishment," adding, "What truly sets Bio-Oil apart is its effectiveness in tackling scars and stretch marks. Over time, I've witnessed these imperfections fade away, replaced by a smoother, more even-toned canvas. The oil's dermatologist-backed pedigree only adds to its credibility, ensuring that you're investing in a product that prioritizes both safety and efficacy. Its non-greasy texture is a cherry on top, making it perfect for everyday use."

It's especially raved-about by women who have used the oil during and after pregnancy to help prevent stretch marks. "IF YOU ARE PREGNANT MAKE THIS PURCHASE HAPPEN," advised a mega-fan. "I never thought I would be someone to make it through pregnancy with 0 stretch marks, and I mean ZERO. I used this Bio-Oil, COMBINED with Palmer's Cocoa Butter for Stretch Marks, twice a day. Morning and night. This was a recommendation I read by a dermatologist before I started showing, and thank god I saw it. ... Every appointment my doctors were shocked and complimented me, and I didn't get why because I didn't know that most women show stretch marks even while they're pregnant."

Older reviewers also extolled the virtues of using Bio-Oil on mature skin. "I have used it for years and, at 78, my skin looks very beautiful," shared one. "I get compliments all the time. Bio-Oil reduces skin discoloration and moisturizes beautifully. I highly recommend it for all women over 60."

Though many users loved the oil's fresh scent, some didn't take to it quite as much: "Only downside is I don’t love the scent, but it’s not super strong," wrote one customer. However, they still gave Bio-Oil a five-star rating, noting, "I didn’t get many stretch marks during pregnancy while using this oil!!"

Of the skin oil, Kristin Chenoweth said that 'I want people to know about it. I love Bio-Oil. If you’re consistent, it’s huge.'
