Vitamin e oil is wonderful. However, if you have oily skin like myself. I advise that you use black soap which treats conditions such as, acne and exam. This soap does dry out the skin but its brilliant, natural and works well alongside vitamin e oil. As I have oily skin the soap works well to remove dirt but the skin is left feeling dry but this is good because when I apply the oil it absorbs well. You can buy black soap from stores that sell hair products for black people and its only about £1.20
Like the review above- I originally bought Pure vitamin E oil so I could put it into water instead of taking a capsule. I was reading the label when I came across the directions that listed the oil could be used as a moisturizer. At first I shied away from the idea because my skin is literally HORRIBLY OILY. I'm talking I wash my face and less than 10 minutes later I can ACTUALLY SEE the oil from individual pores! On top of that- I have mild acne. Its not the worst skin in the world- but I'm constantly bothered by redness and random pimples. So- I figured I would apply the oil to my face at night with a light layer of Benzoyl Peroxide on the few problem areas.
The next morning, literally, I was shocked. My skin looked so healthy- the red little areas were almost completely gone. I've been using it at night for about 3 weeks so far and the only time I've actually had a breakout during that time was when I picked a small pore on my face! AMAZING! Honestly- forget the expensive stuff- this is less than $10 a bottle.
I can't even recommend this stuff enough!
For the past two years I have struggled with hormonal cystic acne all over my chin, consistent with my diagnosis for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. I hate it,and have been trying everything I can to get rid of it. I had at least 5 active cysts and a lot of scarring at any given time, a new cyst cropping up as soon as one diminished (usually taking about a month to go and always leaving a red or purple scar).
I picked this up last week in Holland and Barrett to treat a scar on my daughter's leg. It contains sunflower seed oil, rosehip oil, jojoba oil, calendula extract, and damascan rose flower oil. That's it. The oil is dispensed from a dropper, so it is impossible to dispense too much, and it is very very light in texture, like a dry oil. It seemed to work wonders on my daughter's leg scar almost overnight, and I was impressed. I have read that some people have had success using oils to combat acne, so, in the middle of a horrible outbreak (and figuring I didn't have much to lose), I rubbed a small amount into six or so active cysts and 2 or 3 painful bumps after cleansing before bed. In the morning those 2 or 3 painful bumps had turned into raging angry cysts, but the 6 active cysts had reduced in size by about 30%, faded somewhat in redness and all the old scars seemed to have faded by 50%. So I kept going, applying 2-3 drops in the morning as a serum, and working 5-6 drops into my whole face before bed. The new cysts shrank. I had a few little pimples come upon my cheeks where I don't usually get them, but they were gone by the next day, and every day each cyst would get smaller and smaller.
It is now just shy of a week since I first tried this, and I expect that by tomorrow morning I will be 100% CLEAR of active acne... I can't believe it! I don't know how long it will take the red marks to fade entirely, but I have read that massaging them will help them to fade.
This worked magic for my hormonal cystic acne, I can't quite believe
