I bought Trader Joe's Pure Vitamin E Oil which was just a few dollars. I was hesitant at first to put this on my face but in moderation this helped make my skin so much softer and reduced irritation.

I paid 4 dollars for a few onces.
This not only moisturizes but also helps rid your face of scars.
Mix with lotion and apply and you will love it! Stand alone not so good, lotion is a must

I bought Targets brand.
Everyday after my shower, I slather it on my freshly shaved legs/other parts to keep them smooth and soft. I also use it on my stretchmarks (which have faded after a couple month's use) as well as acne scars
I would recommend for any women to give a try

I bought the Holland & Barretts Vit E oil, they had the penny sale goin on so i got two for £7.66.
I heard its good for skin, so i thought id give it a try. not sure if all vit E oils are like this but it was VERY thick, bit like castor oil consistency. however its bit difficult to massage into my face. but OMD the results were like wow....i usually get flaky skin round my jaw and hairline which irritates me and I come out in lil spots. bit like prickly heat. but once i put this on at night and go to sleep, its totally absorbed into my skin (also partly on my pillow probably) but my skin looks flawless, smooth and even. Im going to keep using this everynight...im in my late twenties now so im gna use this round my eye area too, not too much as its very thick. hope it slows down the ageing process! if you get rough skin, or dry, flaky skin, or have dry skin in general this stuff is great. i dont use it on my t- zone though as thats oily. but i use it on my forehead and cheeks and its amazing!!

Vitamin E was recommended to me by my gynecologist to help me with breast pain caused by benign tumors. He said it helps lower the inflammation of the tissues resulting from it. And it worked. I read somewhere Vitamin E oil is good for the skin too, so I figured I should use it for my under eye area to help with the inflammation too. My under eye area is brown, full of noticeable veins, and very swollen. I tend to use massive amounts of concealed every time.
Last night I took a vitamin E softgel and poked it with a needle; I took the drops of the oil and gently patted them under my eyes. It is an oil with a very thick, sticky consistency, so I worried it would provoke me some serious milia. I left it overnight and looked at my self in the mirror this morning, I was surprised. My skin absorbed it completely, it felt soft, the eye area was also brighter and it helped with fine lines too. My veins are less visible, and when I put concealer it glides easier too. I think this will be a good night rutine from now on.
(I figured it is not too different from Elizabeth Arden's night capsules, and for a fraction of the price)...
I recommend you give this a try!

This is great, I get a bottle from superdrug and it is extremely hydrating is packed full of antioxidants but it is a little irritating on my neck, no where else though. you really only need 2 drops of this stuff to cover your whole face, I recommend putting on on before you sleep.

I have been using a retinoid on my facial acne, which means that my skin is extra sensitive. I'm also a wild sleeper. I woke up to find two big, painful scars on my face in really embarrassing places. I purchased this product in its highest concentration (32,000). Being the scientist I am, I applied the oil to one scar and not the other to see how much it was really helping. Within two days, the scar that I had used the oil on was completely vanished, along with some light acne scarring that had been near it and got hit with some of it. Meanwhile, the other scar was still visible. Would definitely recommend! I'm excited to find some more uses for this amazing stuff!

Just to note before my review, I have very sensitive, oily, acne prone skin. Most acne products that I've used, my skin as reacted badly to, but in the past year, I cut all soaps and acne products out of my routine and opted for a more natural route.
Okay I know picking is bad, but let's be real, it happens sometimes. About 3 weeks ago, I had this really bad under the skin spot, and I tried to extract it on my own- worst decision EVER. I made this huge terrible wound on my face that I knew was going to scar horribly and I had a party to go to the next day. I panicked and had no idea what to do. Then I remembered my mother had gotten me a bottle of vitamin e capsules quite some time ago. She told me to try it on my acne scars because a family friend was recommended it by a doctor for a really bad cooking burn, but I never listened to her. I thought "why would I put oil on my face? My face is oily enough!" Well in a moment of desperation, I decided to try it. I cut a little hole at the top of a capsule and put the oil all over my face. The results were dramatic! I'm not saying that it was gone overnight, but the laceration I made to my face the night before was starting to heal, and I noticed my overall complexion looked much brighter. By the next day, enough skin had formed over the wound that I was able to cover it pretty well with make up. The spot healed up in about 3 or 4 days and left a pretty nasty scar, but I've been using the vitamin e every night and one month later, you couldn't even tell I did anything to that spot. My older scars have also faded very noticeably. I'm very pleased with my new routine. I haven't had any break outs or negative effects from using the vitamin e. I've also noticed that my eye lashes have gotten longer too!
Basically my routine is this. At night, I cleanse my face with colloidal oatmeal mixed with water. I use olive oil to remove any make up first, if necessary. Then once my face is clean and dry, I take 1 vitamin e capsule (400 IU Kirkland Signature brand from Costco) and apply the oil all over my face (sometimes I'll use rosewater as a toner first if my skin is irritated, but not every night). If I have any pimples, I dab a bit of tea tree oil on them. I let this sit for at least an hour before going to bed so some of it gets absorbed. Then I just sleep and the rest of it gets absorbed into my skin overnight. I wake up and my skin looks bright and hydrated, and it seems like my scars fade more and more every day (and I had many before). My skin looks healthy and glows. Any pimples I get now are much smaller and heal in a few days, no picking necessary ;).
I would recommend everyone to try this. I can see from the reviews it doesn't work for everyone, but I also noticed most of the negative reviews were by people that used very very strong vitamin e oil. I would recommend that people use a lower strength, 200 or 400 IU is sufficient enough.
I've been looking into the oil cleansing method for a while now, and I've only recently started it. I've been doing a mix of 1 vitamin e capsule with equal part castor oil, and so far my skin looks noticeably healthier every morning, but it's too early for me to give a real review about that at this point.

Vitamin e oil is fantastic. I use this thick oil in my homemade chap sticks and as a wound/ scar healer. I also use it on my eyelashes as a clear mascara since it creates a great shine and keeps them in place. The consistency is like honey. I do think the packaging needs a bit of work... the lid has a spatula-like applicator attached to it, but it's really pointless because it's really messy. If you want just a tiny bit (which is all you need because of the thickness of this stuff) it's very difficult to do. I think an eye dropper or a pump would've been much better.
The one thing I simply cannot use it for is acne. It makes me breakout worse. My skin is incredibly sensitive and i think this oil is just too thick and concentrated. I really can't use any kind of oil on my skin (including tea tree and jojoba which works fine for most people). So just a word of caution, test an area or at least a day or TWO before putting it all over your face or other sensitive areas.
Bottom line, I'd recommend this for anything except very sensitive facial skin.

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!!
