MY THOUGHTS:
I love this oil its lite and very absorbent, I started using this oil last year and immediately noticed results after 2 weeks use. My skin appeared clearer and toned.
I lightly apply the oil to the areas of my face that are prone to dry patches which are the sides of my nose and my t-zone. I have combination dry and oily skin, so my facial routine consists of removing the oil from my skin with a cleanser and then using a moisturiser to  put it back in. It helps my skin stay moisturised all day.

I love applying it after my moisturiser as a sealant it helps lock in the moisture.
It has a nice scent of cocoa which I like, nothing overpowering. A little goes a long long way I'm still on my first bottle which I've had since...around this time last year? Lol I'm just about to open a new bottle. (Back Ups)
I know how my skin...especially my face loves Vitamin E so purchasing this product was a no brainer. :)


Vitamin E refers to a group of fat soluble compounds with strong antioxidant properties. An antioxidant is a substance that reduces oxidative damage, damage caused by oxygen which can harm human tissue, cells and organs.

Vitamin E exists in eight different isomers (forms), four tocopherols and four tocotrienols:Alpha-tocopherol - found in the largest quantities in human blood and tissues. This is the only form actively maintained in the human body.
This form of vitamin E has the greatest nutritional significance. Most dosing and daily allowance recommendations for this vitamin are given in ATE (Alpha-Tocopherol Equivalents).

This is the second most abundant form of vitamin E in the US diet. Alpha tocopherol can be found most abundantly in sunflower oil, safflower oil, and wheat germ oil. As a food additive, it has E number E308.

Its molecular formula is C29H50O2.Beta-tocopherol - a natural tocopherol with less antioxidant activity than alpha-tocopherol. Its molecular formula is C28H48O2.Gamma tocopherol - the major form of vitamin C in the US diet. It can be found in corn oil, soybean oil, margarine and dressings. Gamma tocopherol may be important to human health, according to recent studies, as it is well absorbed in human tissue. As a food additive, it has E number E308.

Its molecular formula is C28H48O2.Delta-tocopherol - It is found in lower concentrations than alpha-tocopherol. As a food additive, it has E number E309. Its molecular formula is C27H46O2.Alpha-tocotrienol - the most abundant form of vitamin E in palm oil. Its molecular formula is C29H44O2.Beta-tocotrienol - Its molecular formula is C28H42O2.Gamma-tocotrienol - a rare form of vitamin E.Delta-tocotrienol - Its molecular formula is C27H40O2.
