Helps a lot, especially with BP

I had issues with Acne for most of my life (now I am 30). The only thing that worked was accutane (but only temporary) and Benzoyl peroxide.

With Benzoyl peroxide I was able to efficiently control acne for some time but it always at some point became unmanageable again.

Last few year was pretty hard and efficiency of BP also reduced. After some research on Acne, I have found information that BP depletes 

vitamin E in your skin. I started taking higher doses of vitamin e oraly (probably 4x times recommended dose) and my acne significantly improved.

I got it under control (99% of time my skin is clear) again. I still need to use BP but vitamin E is a missing component that is required to make everything work.

Try vitamin E with Benzoyl Peroxide and I guess for 99% of people it might help control acne effectively as I have a very stubborn case.

Nothing happened. Only made my lips redder. LOL.
The title says it all. Been taking this for several months. It helps with the skin, I think? Haha. The brand I have with me is Nature Made (I'm based in the Philippines).

200mg of vit e has reduced my acne by 90% in a week
Hey folks, I have tried everything for acne, and nothing seemed to work. I also constantly had greasy skin. Since starting Vit E, my skin stopped being greasy and my acne has reduced by about 90%. I can't believe how well this is working. I could see a difference immediately the day after starting. I have been on it for 2 and a half weeks now. I had cystic acne and normal acne. (I am female at 33 years old.)

Life changing!!!!!!!
I never normally write reviews but I have to share this with someone. I've ALWAYS struggled with my skin. Acne has caused so many issues with my self esteem over the years and, as a 21 year old, I had started to accept it would never get better... I've been on Lymecyline for 2 years and various contraceptive pills (some which even caused serious depression) and, although admittedly my skin is much clearer than it once was, I still get the occasional spot, but also the TEXTURE of my skin is horrible - like leather, huge pores and red scars from my acne that are deep in the skin. Makeup just makes it look worse and my skin just looks incredibly dull and dry but also oily :( I've tried everything and I mean EVERYTHING. Nothing worked... until recently I've been using the "Aztec face mask" (bentonite clay + apple cider vinegar) once a week which seriously gets the sh*t out my pores and stuff. It's seriously amazing guys. But doesn't sort out my dry horrible leather face. I recently tried vitamin e oil (70,000 iu) randomly and didn't expect anything to happen. Just thought I'd give it a go like I do with everything when it comes to my skin. I woke up the next day and my skin was 100% clearer and brighter!!! I've never seen my skin so bright and glowing! In one night I noticed less acne scarring. Less acne. Smoother pores... it was like a miracle!!!! I've used it every night since (about 10 days I've been doing it for now) and I honestly look like a different person. I finally can be in front of my bf without makeup!!!!! Anyone on this thread will understand how freeing it is to not wear makeup after years of hiding and I truly believe it is because of vitamin e oil. I understand everyone's skin is different and it might not work for everyone, especially if you're currently still prone to break outs then this oil might not be for you. However, as a girl who has always been prone to breakouts since the age of 13, I haven't experienced any yet from vitamin e oil. Please try it!!! :)

Hey (: Is this the exact product you used? Do you reckon food supplements are just as useful or the oil works better?
September 20, 2017
Bea - yep! Can't see the brand but it's defo 70,000 UI. I haven't tried taking food supplements, I know for me personally it works to apply stuff like this on my skin because it makes it sooooo smooth

I've suffered with acne all my life, but in the past 12-18 months even more so, with cystic and comedone acne going berserk. It was so difficult to hide with make-up, huge, painful cystic spots, particularly along the jawline. I had read this was a hormonal type, and cut out all dairy, eggs, chicken in case the hormones they're fed were affecting it. I started taking Yazmin contraceptive pill, taking zinc, vitamin D, B vitamins, cutting out chocolate, sugar, fat, not to mention using topical treatments like benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid daily. I never noticed a difference. Then I started supplementing vitamin E. The results were fast; though my acne took a while to clear up, my skin was softer and spots didn't last as long. Then I added vitamin E oil topically - oh my goodness. My skin is bright and clear. I have 1 or 2 spots right now, down from a counted average of 12-15. It even brightens under eye bags and general skin redness. Even the scars look better. I couldn't recommend the combination of supplementation and topical use more highly. I know it won't work for everyone, but after everything I've tried, this is by far the best. I'm so chuffed.

Hey, did it at first feel like your skin is purging, as in more red spots but they healed quicker? Like its making all the "dirt" from below come out faster, thats what it feels like to me - or its actually making it worse for me not sure.

So how about it so far? Is it good?
September 17, 2017
Yeah its effective, I used it for about a couple pf weeks or three weeks I think and it did help, but I'm including aloe vera, apple cider toner and honey mask in my regimen. I am not putting vitamin E oil on my face because I feel it will broke me out. I used this only at night on my marks.

What did happen ?
April 17, 2017
It did help with some scars over time

I've been taking 400 IU of vitamin E for about a month now. By no means is this a miracle acne solution. However, I have noticed and improvement in the texture of my skin as well as my dark spots fading a little quicker. I will continue taking this because I do like the results. I just have to keep finding more products to help clear my skin as well. I definitely recommend giving this a try :)

Did you use the pills or applied it on your face?

Good for lightening
I take 1-2 (you're really only supposed to take one) 1000 iu vitamin e pills each day. I've been doing so for a little over a month. My skin I clearer, and brighter, but honestly that could be due to any number of things in my acne regimen. I can't say for sure whether or not it is the vitamin e. However, sometimes I cut a pill open and apply the oil directly to a pimple thats forming/ a scar/ hyperpigmentation. When I apply it to a pimple or a cyst, it comes to a head by the next day. So it will erupt your acne quicker. When I apple it to my scars, they heal faster. And when I apply it to my dark spots, they lighten overnight. Especially effective if you leave a bandaid on. However, I did not notice that it lessened my number of pimples (nor did it make me breakout). Simply makes them come to a head quicker. So conclusion: orally taken, I can't really see the results. Topically applied--very good.
