Just applied onto my biopsy scar and my port removal scar on my chest. The port scar is new there since August,it can get very itchy at times and painful.
Just applied kelo-cote and was surprised how smoothly it went on..not messy or watery.
Looking forward to using it in my routine.

I heard some great things about this product and I decided to try it. I ve really bad scar after chemical burn (caustic soda) which look horrible becuase is right on the top of my hand and is not easy to hide it. Scar is very pink with a high ridge. It itched and pulled my skin. When i saw this product i thought this was a lot of money for a little tube but it works! I have been using the product daily for two weeks now. I only use a tiny, tiny amount and I still haven't run out of the tube. My scar is already little bit lighter and no longer pulls and itches. So far so good but i am waiting for better results.
So, when my little package arrived in the post, I thought to myself, ‘well, I’ll have this used up in a week’…it seemed so small!! But I was soon to be proved wrong; you only need a teeny, tiny amount to cover each scar. At the start, I was putting WAY too much on but soon learnt that in order for it to dry and provide a coating, less is more. Once I stopped being so heavy handed with the gel, I found it so easy to apply and once it’s on, you’d never know, there’s no smell, no shine, it just covers the scar. I applied it every morning and then again before I went to bed at night, it’s easy enough to incorporate into your daily routine…and once you start to see a difference in your scars, you’ll definitely won’t forget to apply it!!
So, does it work? I have to admit, I was pretty sceptical about it, but now that I’ve been using it for approximately three weeks, I can definitely guarantee that it does. I only wish I had taken a photo of the scar on my arm to be able to compare ‘before’ and ‘after’. The pinkness has gone out of the scar; it is definitely smoother and less noticeable. Re the c-section scars, I don’t know if they have improved that much (they are not the easiest thing for me to look at as I have an ‘apron’ of skin over them, a common c-section side effect) – however, the ‘tightness’ I used to feel has completely disappeared. And, bearing in mind, I have lost nearly a stone in weight since I started in the gym, definitely Kelo-cote has helped soften the scars and let them move as I move!!
I think maybe that Kelo-cote works best on ‘fresh’ scars, it has made a huge difference to the scar on my arm, you can barely see it now. However, on older scars, it definitely helps ‘soften’ them; I can really feel a difference in my three c-section scars. I would recommend this in a heart beat and am delighted I was chosen to take part in the trial, I never knew there was anything like this on the market and I am thrilled I got to improve the appearance of the scar on my arm. Many thanks to MummyPages for choosing me and to Kelo-cote for working a treat!!
