Review: Dr Organic Vitamin E Oil

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

What it says on the Holland and Barrett website: For when a high level of nourishing and repair is required, this pure oil is suitable for most skin types and can be used on any part of the body. Particularly suitable for helping to reduce stretch marks and soothing rough dry skin.

I've always been a great believer of the healing properties of Vitamin E and be it masks, moisturisers or body cream, I've experimented with a variety of products - some being better than others. After reading the higher the i.u, the more effective it is, I purchased Vitamin E oil in 70,000 i.u to combat a few stretchmarks and pimple scars but found it to be extremely thick and difficult to apply - think of the consistency of really thick honey and you have an idea of what I was attempting to apply to my face before bed! It was too messy and more bother than was necessary at 10pm in the evening! 

The Dr Organic range is based on specific ingredients known for their unique properties; Aloe Vera, Manuka Honey, Tea Tree, Pomegranate, Lavender and of course, Vitamin E. All ranges can be found at Holland &Barrett stores nationwide.

Dr Organic Vitamin E Oil comes in a sturdy plastic bottle, and is easily absorbed coming in a texture similar to that of baby oil. I've used this on and off since mid December and there is plenty of product left in the 50ml bottle it comes in. I have a terrible habit of resting on my elbows on my desk as I work, which sometimes results in rough skin on my elbows. After three weeks of repeated use of the oil, my elbows were restored back to their former soft glory - good stuff!

The oil again came in handy when I burnt myself in Paris (don't ask!) and I've been rubbing it on the small burn on my upper arm daily. I'm confident I'll be left with little to no scarring due to the properties of Vitamin E. Vitamin E provides a mix of bio active (stay with me, stay with me!) ingredients designed to penetrate and hydrate the driest of skin, giving instant conditioning while maintaining natural elasticity. I can't go wrong with Vitamin E forever being recommended as a must have in any skincare regime.

Thanks for the heads up on this! I remember my Canadian friend trying to find pure Vit E oil anywhere here - she resorted to squeezing capsules instead! Am going to get some for my boy who has breakouts and gets distressed by the scarring :( X

Sounds awesome :D I need to find some good Vitamin E oil, because I tried Bio Oil and it didnt work (and was a ripoff!)

IceQueen said...

Lol...I too have tried the Vitamin e oil you mentioned, it was nigh on impossible to apply. But will definitely try this one. Price is reasonable too. Thanks

@The Postcolonial Rabbit - That's a good option though, least it's pure! LOL

@Ateh Jewel - Thanks!

@SilouetteScreams - Hmmm Bio Oil didn't really do anything for me either when I tried it, but I know a lot of people who do like it.

@IceQueen - Utter madness! Yeah, I'd rec this one MUCH easier to apply LOL
