Blackmores Review: Nourishment For My Skin With Vitamin E

Blackmores Natural Vitamin E Cream Range

When I learnt that Blackmores released a range of products surrounding the key ingredient, Vitamin E... I gave a nod of approval for the brand. I say that because most brands create just ONE Vitamin E product and that's it.

Blackmores created FOUR variants of Vitamin E-infused creams to meet the different needs of their consumers. In addition, they added Lanolin, Avocado oil & Apricot Kernel Oil to boost its moisturising properties thus making this range a perfect choice for those suffering from dry skin or going abroad to a country with dry climate.

Read on to find out more about Blackmores' Natural Vitamin E skincare range and whether you are a suitable candidate for this range of their creams.


Blackmores Natural Vitamin E Creams

  • Blackmores Natural Vitamin E Cream Firm & Smooth

Overall Review:

For starters, let's talk about the key ingredient, Vitamin E.

This beneficial vitamin is an antioxidant, as a protection against the sun's UVB rays, as an anti-aging agent and a moisturiser.

Hearing all these benefits, it got me thinking... Wow, this is an ingredient that I would LOVE as a woman. It pretty much hit all the necessary checkboxes that I feel a beauty product is required to have.

However there is a silver lining to every cloud. Vitamin E creams are recommended for those with dry skin. To the lucky peeps with dry skin, all the products featured in this post are made for you guys!

If there is one product that you MUST buy and try, it would be the Blackmores Vitamin E Cream Skin Bright!!! It has an interesting fluffy-like texture which I am sucker for! The most important thing about this cream and what I would really like to shout-out for is and the purpose of the cream (ie. to moisturise and brighten complexion) and based on my research of its ingredients, its probable suitability for people with atopic dermatitis (aka eczema).

The two key ingredients of this cream are licorice extract and wakame seaweed extract. From my research, I found out that clinical studies have shown licorice root extract to be an effective ingredient against eczema as it is able to reduce redness and irritation. In addition, wakame seaweed extract contains vitamins B1, 2, 3, 6 and 12 – all of which helps to reduce inflammation.

Correct me if I am wrong because I am drawing memories from my past dating life with a dude who has a bad case of eczema – and thus very dry skin. I made multiple trips to our local drugstores to find a suitable moisturiser for him and they've never really ended well.

His skin was so dry that it was almost scaly like an alligator. As the eczema had spread to his face, his skin would get really dry and itchy. He couldn't resist scratching and so it resulted in bleeding and scars. His facial skin turned dark, red and rough. Back then, there were no moisturisers made for people with eczema, dedicated for facial use only. Thankfully we've got Blackmores now.

If you are or perhaps you know of someone who is troubled by eczema, share with them about this range! They deserve to know about it, they deserve to find a solution for their skin problem.

Now as for the other two creams, they are great for an all round protection. I would suggest using these two bottles occasionally (probably 2-3 days a week) together with Skin Bright. You can switch them around to prevent your skin from getting attuned to one particular product – you can also reap the benefits of the whole range!

You can purchase any of these products from myCK's heartland retail chain for daily essentials! Here is a list of their outlets in Singapore.
