I am back with another product review. This time, it’s the Derma Health’s Skin Lab Concentrated Vitamin E cream, an Australian brand.
Honestly this was a sudden purchase as I toured the aisle at Caring Pharmacy. I was sold at “Concentrated Vitamin E”. For the 200ml tube, it contains 10,000 iu of vitamin E means that the dosage of vitamin E is pretty high, which is good. Legit.
I’m avid user of concentrated vitamin creams. Prior to this cream, I’ve been loving the Simplysiti Hidra Vita treatment creams.
Eventhough the amount of vitamins are not provided, they are sooooo so good. I can skip the other products, but not these. I use the Vitamin C one in the afternoon and the Vitamin E one in the evening. Sometimes I use the M (multivitamin) one, it depends on whatever it is that I wanna use that time. But these ones are pretty tacky so it’s not comfortable at all. So I only use them in the afternoon or in the evening, never in the morning before makeup.
However this Derma Health’s Skin Lab Concentrated Vitamin E cream is totally a game changer. It’s not oily at all. It has the consistency of a lotion, like our typical body lotion. It’s no surprise because I found it sitting on the body lotion shelf at Guardian. In fact, this product is made not specifically for face. It’s for skin in general.
The packaging says that it is formulated to help reduce scar visibility, diminish stretch marks, prevent dry, cracked and damaged skin, lighten acne and other blemishes, reduce the sunburn effect as well as reduce the reoccurrence of new wrinkles.
So I believe it’s a multipurpose cream and totally safe to be used on the face too, according to the packaging. You can definitely use it as a moisturizer right before makeup but I don’t because for that purpose I have a specific moisturizer that I swear by. So I only use this cream whenever I don’t wear makeup.
The first time I applied this cream I was already awed at how fast it absorbed into the skin, like almost instantly. It leaves nothing on the skin. No oil residue, no film residue, nothing like that at all. So I love to reapply it 2 to 3 times each time.
I notice that it does reduce scar visibility. I had one small scar at the corner of my nose from scratching and it was gone in just like a week, I’m not kidding you. As for stretch marks, I haven’t tried it on mine so I don’t know if it works or if it’s not. Maybe I should try.
Because I’m so obsessed with the cream, I went ahead and bought another pack of 2 and a miniature one for travelling.
I wanna give one of these to my mom because she has cracked heels. Hopefully this cream will help her combat xerosis as well.
Oh, the price? It’s not expensive at all. For a single 100ml tube, it retails for ±RM24 and for the value pack (100ml+200ml), I bought it for ±RM44 at Caring Pharmacy. I know the box says RM51.90. Don’t trust the box, trust me. And the travel size, I picked it up for RM5.90 at Guardian.
I think that’s it for the review. I’ll see you in the next one.
