Love Island's Olivia Bowen credits £25 silicone gel for transforming her 'red and angry' surgery scar – and it has five star reviews on Amazon

The Love Island runner-up took to Instagram yesterday to tell her followers about Nourisil MD's Silicone Scar Gel – which has also received five star reviews on Amazon.

Olivia, 24, shared a before and after photo of a mark just below her armpit, which is the result of surgery to remove a benign lump.

She wrote: "A month or so ago I was sent this silicone gel from @nourisil_md which basically is meant to help with the redness and raised appearance of scars.

"I've been using it for the last month and I'm actually so happy with how my scar has changed!

"You can see even in these photos it's actually visible how much it's made my scar, which was very red and angry, calm down and settle and I no longer have any discomfort from it!"


Olivia added: "I honestly recommend it so much for anyone with an angry scar, it's made me so happy."

Over on Amazon, the product is described as being "designed by dermatologists for the prevention and treatment of keloid and hypertrophic scars, resulting from wounds, trauma, burns or medical/cosmetic surgery".

It works by creating a "silicone barrier" that helps the skin to release moisture, thereby reducing collagen and the severity of a scar.

The brand states that it's suitable for use on all types of skin, and even on children.

There are a number of positive reviews on the site, with one customer writing: "Bought this for my daughter who had an operation on her forehead to remove a large cyst.

"The serum is easy to put on, non-greasy and makes the skin really soft. I was worried about the scar as it had a bit of a bump each end but Nourisil MD has really helped reduce this and the scar looks much improved.

"I was surprised how quickly we started to see a reduction in the bumps and would happily recommend this product."

Another person commented: "I bought this product to try on my large, hypertrophic keloid scar that had become quite hard.

"After nine months of use, it has softened the scar and stopped the itching.

"I still have a long way to go before the scar flattens but at least it's going in the right direction."
