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.
