I used this as a facial oil/moisturizer for about three weeks. I used it “straight” (not mixed with other oils) and would use about a dime sized amount each night.

The good:
Plenty for a very low price.
No irritating fragrance.
Simple ingredient list.
Spreads evenly and absorbs well without an oily after look or feel.

The bad:
I developed lots of little white heads about two weeks into use, as well as a couple of legitimate blemishes. This flare up cleared up almost immediately after discontinuing the oil.
When it would seep toward the eye area (as much as I tried to avoid it), it would irritate my eyes (red/minor pain).

I am easily break out prone so it may work well for others but it wasn’t a win for me.

I used this in the shower with a loofah and my soap (Cetaphil) because I have sensitive, itchy skin. I also rub some into my Aveeno lotion and put it on my body. I had some hideous mosquito bites that are clearing up and my skin is so soft all day. I have even used it once or twice as a cleansing oil. The soybean oil scent is a bit much for me, but I have a hyperactive nose and it doesn't bother me enough to stop using it because it works so well for the price.

I'm sorry but, I really wanted to love this product. I bought it to use as a body oil & it broke my arms out. Maybe it's the coconut oil ingredient? But, yeah. Maybe I'll use the rest on my hair. I'm lowkey mad too bc I trust makeupalley reviews and I didn't find one bad review. But, olive oil is the best oil for me.

I love reading all the reviews of this stuff to see the many different ways people use this oil. I like to use it in the shower after I shave to help prevent razor burn and it works really well. I also use it for cuts, burns, and scrapes to help them heal faster and minimize scarring. In my opinion, this is always a good product to have on hand.

I have been using this for about a month now as a nightly moisturizer. I love it. I put about 3 drops on my clean face. Massage the oil into my skin. My ski looks so much better. My acne scars are fading. My skin looks more moisturizing and plump. I does not break me out and and minimized my fine lines. I will for sure be repurchasing this product.

This is great on my pregnant tummy. Keeps the itchies away and I think it's lightened some of the stretch marks that have appeared. It soaks in right away, but there is still a nice moist feeling left on your skin all day. The only drawback is the packaging needs to be kept tight or it will spill out.

Really simple and light with no added fragrance. I like to dab this on any scars I have at night to help them fade faster. I also throw some of this in an empty nail polish bottle with extra virgin olive oil to use as a cuticle oil throughout the day and it absolutely works wonders.

If you cut yourself while shaving or have razor burn on your legs this stuff will also do nicely to keep your legs moisturized without having to fear that lotion is going to sting. I've repurchased twice already and will continue to do so to take care of my scars and moisturize my hands.

I honestly think the packaging is a little homely, but it isn't difficult to use and does the job. I really appreciate how quickly it's absorbed by the skin and I'll repurchase!

I love it! So light and absorbs into my skin after I wash my face. No breakouts and I like that it is all natural. It feels better than 100% pure Vitamin E oil - not sticky:) Fragrance free and it doesn't irritate my eyes either. It will be a staple in my beauty routine forever! HG!

A nice oil that I use mixed with other oils on my body daily. I also use this on my hands and cuticles. It works wonders for dry cracked skin. I also use it on my hair as well.

I tried coconut oil to see if I could get something heavier to moisturize. Now that I'm getting older, I am searching for something that won't irritate but that has real healing properties. Since I was a teen I had some mild acne scars. After using the oil for about 3 weeks, my scars are barely visible! My skin is more smooth as it has ever been. Vitamin E oil is used to treat cuts and abrasians because it minimizes scar tissue. It also keeps any acne and blackheads at bay. The only problem is that it works too well and my skin starts to feel dry if I use it a lot. Like if my skin doesn't have a chance to replenish its natural oils. So I've been reading up on pores and the science behind blackheads. Pores naturally create sebum. The more you try to limit the sebum, the more oil your pores have to produce. The vitamin E oil keeps the sebum clear but probably attacks my pores a bit too vigorously and causes irritation (too much of a good thing). I'm not a skin expert so read my post and information for what it is worth. If you have struggled with rough patches and acne scars, this stuff is excellent. If you want to use it for wrinkles and fine lines, I still don't know if it has made a difference yet. Maybe in time. I use it a bit more sparingly (like every other night) or just give myself Vitamin E oil treatments here and there. I've been combining it with Ponds cold cream at night and they seem to compliment each other. OH and I do use it for my hair when I want to give it some repairing. It softens my color processed hair a lot and makes it look more natural. And I used it on a blister on my foot and it healed the blister over night. It has so many uses for sure so I will always keep it handy.
