It is said vitamin e is good for our skin.
I am searching information about vitamin e oil. I found that it would be better for us to use natural vitamin e rather than synthetic vitamin e.
From my experience, i also found that it is better for me to use pure vitamin e.
I have ever used a food grade vitamin e as my face moisturizer (mix with my favorite lotion / cream face)
It's ingredients is:
d-alpha tocopherol 100 IU
FDC Blue no 1
Cl no 42090
FDC Yellow no 5
Cl no 19140
I bought it from my local store. It's in a soft capsule. I pin the capsule then i drop it on my palm. I mix it with cream or lotion so that it's not too greasy.
It moisturizes my face. But doesn't do anything further. My fine lines, dark spot and acne are still there. It doesn't make my skin supple or soft or somewhat i want it to be.
I decided to choose natural pure vitamin e.
Then i choose vitamin e oil from Colonial Dames brand.
It is said :
This pure vitamin e oil has been assayed at 28.000 I.U. per bottle and is dermatologist tested. Pharmaceutical Grade............
It's ingredients :
tocopheryl acetate (pure vitamin e)
It cames with a cute bottle packaging (like a nail polish packaging). A dropper is included in the box.
I take e few drops on my palm. Mix it with my face cream/lotion. Then apply it to my face. Then i put my make up on (am) or go to bed (pm)
After a few days, my skin become more supple and soft. My dark spot is lighter. My acne becomes smaller too =)
I suggest you mix this oil with your face cream/or lotion. Because it's so thick. Hard to apply this oil to your face alone.
You can add some vitamin c powder if u want. For a radiant glow and lighten skin tone. But remember, just a small amount, or you'll get irritated.
The important thing is, it's not expensive. Hahaha
Just for you know, i use clarisonic to wash my face before applying this
Hope it helps.=)
Try it ladies!!
I love Vitamin E Oil. I've used rose hips and Bio Oil, but nothing works like vitamin E. I put it on after I use my Clairisonic at night, and my skin is so dreamy the next day. My face has always been ruddy and rough, but I can't stop touching it. I have very sensitive skin, but I don't break out and I use it when I do get the occasional zit, and it doesn't make them any worse. So long as I Clairisonic regularly, I have no problems with it.
I loved this for the first 4 or 5 days. Seemed like it was really improving my skin's feel and appearance. I have Sundown 70,000 iu. btw. It's a very thick, sticky oil, but I had just started to perfect the method of applying it (patting it on first, then very lightly - almost a wispy motion, of rubbing it around with fingertips) that made it sink into my skin easily... and then today it started making my face itch. I also noticed my face was reddish more than usual today after I applied it. I don't want to risk the irritation, and there are "safer" oils I can use, such as coconut oil.
WOW! I was so scared this would break me out, but i desperately wanted something to help lighten my acne scars around the cheek area, where I get pimples that last a long time, and scar the worst.
After about a week, I notice my scars lighten. However I found it only works if you massage the oil into the skin a little bit. I also used this on a patch of dry skin and slight eczema on top of my cheeks, and after one night of use, the texture has improved. Overall I really feel vitamin E Oil revitalizes my skin, best of all NO BREAKOUTS!
I've been using the serum in a bottle with eye dropper by Trophic - it's 100% natural - I use it on my body - it's wonderful - makes my skin soft, supple, and is a great moisturizer - I just bought the New Roots 400iu gel caps and have started using them on my face in lieu of all the other stuff I used to put on (pro-Derma ABA night cream, Obagi under eye serum, and Skinceuticals Retin A 1.0). I've been pricking one gel cap with a needle and squeezing the brown goo onto my face - one cap does the whole face. So far it's been three days and I haven't noticed any big changes yet - will keep u informed as I go along. I plan to try it for a week. btw - I'm hormonal right now and am dealing with over active sebaceous glands, and my hair had been out of control greasy (even after washing) and my face is mostly clear except for the cystic acne on my chin - I'm hoping that the Vitamin E oil won't make the acne worse - we shall see.
This is one of my many many products that I will actually continue to purchase.
I purchased the Dollar General Vitamin E Oil for two dollars and I couldn't be happier.
I originally bought it to heal 3 menstrual zits that formed from extracting whiteheads. It did the job very well. I apply many products at night and this is the one I use last, I apply it all over my face with clean hands and sleep in it.
It does not break me out and heals and evens tone, especially dark acne spots.
This particular one also contains soy and coconut oil.
I even started using it on my curly, coarse, dry and damaged hair and it really softens up the ends like none of my other 15 products I use daily.
This stuff is definitely a miracle worker.
Thanks to the review below this I know that my vitamin e oil is natural :-)
I got my vitamin e oil from holland and Barrett for a huge discount as it was about to expire but I thought since I wasn't going to consume it, it's okay considering that I'm saving SGD 40 which is USD30+. I got it for only SGD 9.90 which was a great bargain!
It did lighten my scars significantly over a duration of 2 weeks + with daily application. It also made my dry hair ends so soft when I mixed it with my hair treatment and left it on for an hour. I haven't even used up a quarter of it! The downside is that it has a very thick oily consistency which takes time to absorb. It smells a bit like olive oil but it doesn't bother me :-) Will repurchase if I finish it and it's on sale!
I use the Nature's Gate brand because it is natural and not synthetic vitamin E. If you do some research, you will see that synthetic vitamin E is not very effective and can even be harmful. If the label lists the vitamin E with a d-prefix (like d-alpha tocopherol or d-alpha tocopheryl acetate) then it's natural. If it's a dl-prefix (like dl-alpha tocopherol) then it's synthetic.
I use vitamin E to smooth out my skin. I've been using it for about a month now and while I only notice small differences in appearance, my skin does feel better and the texture is smoother. I dab a drop under each eye and add two drops into my palm with 5 drops of almond oil and massage it into my neck and chest. I do not recommend applying the vitamin E all over your face because when I did that I woke up with aggravated skin that was oddly dry and irritated. Big mistake and haven't done it since. I have no idea what I was thinking. The vitamin E takes quite a while to absorb into my under eye area so I only apply at night. It absorbs faster when I mix it with lotion or another oil.
Sometimes I add a drop into a pump of Aveeno and use it on my scarred up legs. I have no idea if this is working, but if I also add a few drops of sweet almond oil, it makes the Aveeno absorb quickly and leaves my skin feeling very nourished.
I bought this for about $11 at Whole Foods. I didn't have anything else to order online and with the shipping prices I could find, it would've cost the same.
i've actually been using E oil for quite some time on and off (more like when i'm not too tired to rub some on before passing out). i didn't realize until today that other people were using it as well. it was just something i picked up at dollar general for about 3 bucks and thought it would make a good moisturizer. and it seems i was right! i only use it at night because i couldnt imagine trying to put makeup on over it. i also like using it on my lips before i go to sleep. i def. notice that my skin is no where near as dry as it used to be in the winter. as far as acne scars go, i havent noticed a dramatic difference, but maybe i need to be a little more diligent in using it nightly. i love the feeling on my face and it does eventually sink in ( i dont usually wake up feeling greasy, unless it is especially hot that night). perhaps this is some kind of miracle oil (like the tales we've all heard about the lady who never aged using Crisco religiously..). i like the thought of it being natural and not having chemicals and other unknown things.
i would say if you haven't used it, give it a try. it's cheap and if you don't like the feeling on your face, it's also awesome on your legs (especially mixed with a little shimmer before putting your LBD).
i now keep a bottle next to my bed!
After my rhinoplasty, my doctor told me to get some vitamin E oil to help with the scarring.
I used it for about two weeks total. Though the scarring has been very minimal, this has helped it continue to fade.
I wanted to change up my skin routine and my skin has become drier since the surgery. I wanted to fade whatever post acne marks I had left and moisturize my skin - along with adding all the other benefits of this oil.
For some strange reason, anything that works for the majority of people DO NOT work for me. They, in fact, make my skin much, much worse.
The oil started to make my skin very very flaky, irritate it and cause some acne flare up. It's terrible.
I wanted this to work for me so badly but it just "ruined" my skin. Once I realized that all it's doing is destroy my skin, I switched back to my normal routine. I now have to work my way back to getting my skin better again.
I'm so upset by this, since my skin was starting to make good progress and now I'm several steps backward.
I would never recommend this to anyone for a skin routine. To help with scarring, yes but never for anything else.
