I have mixed feelings about this product.
I've been slathering this over my red acne scars five times a day, every day, for the past two weeks. I've even been scrubbing the areas in with my fingers, massaging my skin delicately. My results? Though there's barely any difference in appearance, my acne scars certainly aren't as pigmented as they used to be, but they're still quite noticeable.
Also, even though this cream has mineral oil listed as the second ingredient, I haven't had a problem with pimples or zits yet. That's so surprising as this stuff really moisturizes my face, leaving it soft and a bit oily to the touch.
After undergoing many uses of trial and error, I've found that this cream absorbs better when applied wet or when rubbed into wet skin. The only downfall is that the white residue color takes longer to disappear.
It takes a while to rub in, but once it's soaked into your skin, you'll instantly be able to feel the results. My soft skin has even become a good canvas for smoother make-up application, specifically for my liquid foundation.
This cream doesn't do anything to diminish the appearance of fine lines or blemishes, but since it's so cheap and moisturizing, I'll happily continue to purchase.
I like to use this cream during winter, drying months. I use small amount around eyes, lips, neck and chest (where wrinkles/fine lines develop first). Also good for allover moisturizer focusing on rough spots. Really good on hands! Despite a longer ingredient list than products I usually use, I have had no adverse effects from this cream. Would not recommend on oily skin.
This skin care cream greatly helped me avoid sunburn pain. Immediately after getting out of the sun and realizing what I had done to myself, I had one of my kids liberally apply this skin care cream and I never had bad sunburn pain. I'm fixing to put it on my son's neck, as he just came home and he his horribly burned back there. Product smells ok, too.
Too oily, has mineral oil as it's 2nd ingredient, smell's horrible & over all doesn't soak into the skin, not that I'd want it to after looking at the ingredient list.
I tried it at a friends house & it was aweful for me. Packaging is great though love the tub it comes in so you can easily use all teh product.
I'm a huge lotion junkie & love this stuff. IMO, FOTE is a very trust worthy brand. So I had to try this stuff. I picked up two 4oz tubs from a local Dollar General yesterday for only $3.
Last summer I made a stupid decision of not using SPF while enjoying a day at a beautiful local lake. I'm really pale (full german!), & thus this silly mistake came with a huge consequence. There is a layer of scar tissue on both of my forearms, along with tons of burn marks & freckles. I slathered on a dab of this before going to sleep last night, & when I woke up - there was a HUGE change. My arms look normal again! The skin texture is finally smooth again, & the freckles+burn marks have faded dramatically. ONLY AFTER ONE NIGHT OF USAGE. Even my mother noticed the difference & was shocked. Trust me, she is one hell of a critic.
I will update soon. I plan to continue using as needed on my arms, along with on my scars & face. :)
P.S: I hate the smell, but a spray of perfume can fix that issue easily. (Not like the fragrance in it lasts long anyways.)
Will repurchase until the end of time, or it gets discontinued. Whichever comes first. ;P
I used to get my vitamin cream from BJs wholesale club (their house brand) which worked wonders for my skin. Then they stopped making it and I was left looking for a good substitute. Fruit of the earth to the rescue!!.. Not only its cheap but my face looks very well rested (not to mention the redness, subsides) when I put it on before bed. My skin is oily and I'm acne prone; thank goodness no ill effects from this product. The price tag and effectiveness combo you can't go wrong!.. I LURVS it!!!
Recently my mom's friend taught me how to make a homemade cream using this by whipping 4 oz of vitamin E cream, 4 oz of vaseline and 8 oz of Johnsons and Johnsons baby lotion (original) altogether until it's fluffy and smooth. Spreading this stuff on is like butter and leaves skin so soft and conditioned. I would never use this on my face b/c of all the mineral oil. However, I use this for my hands and neck. I can't rate this product alone, but I'm sure the benefits of vitamin E is doing something good for parts of my body!
I bought this from Walmart a while ago. I just started cleaning out my stash and am trying to use up all the products I've accumulated through the years. It comes in two-4oz tubs. I think I bought this because it had Vitamin E and Vitamin E is really really good for scars. I probably bought it to lighten acne scars on my face. I don't know where the first tub is, but I am certain I didn't finish it. The second ingredient is mineral oil and this is a big no-no for acne-prone skin. I am now using it on body scars and as a hand moisturizer as a prev. reviewer mentioned. It's pretty rich and has like this sunflower oil scent. I won't be using this on my face as I am certain that it will bring out the rebellious side of my skin and really, who needs that?
I would never put this on my super oily facial skin because I can only have nightmares about what it would do to my ridiculously sensitive pores, but I do LOVE this on my body...I rub it all over my legs and arms after getting out of the shower...It takes forever to soak in, which I actually prefer because it makes me think it'll last longer...this stuff makes my skin (especially on my hands) the MOST SOFT its ever been...like seriously, this makes my skin feel baby soft and I get tons of compliments on how soft I feel whenever I have this on...I have also learned a new trick--I use this as lip treatment..my lips are SO soft when I use this on them after exfoliating..I actually quite enjoy the jar container this comes in, even though some might think it's not hygienic..I actually like to scoop out a big morsel of this thick cream and spread it all over myself....I don't know why, but I just find it fun rather than squirting lotion out of a bottle and having it sink in quick..maybe I just have too much time on my hands lol...but yeah I love this stuff and consider it to be my HG body moisturizer! Also, it doesn't irritate my skin at all, which i really need!
i used this at my best friend house last time i vitsed home it was kinda nice till i looked at what was in it... mineral oil fing gross and i am usre if there is mineral oil that means the vitamin e in it is synthic nasty nasty nasty
