Hi My Lovelies,
I hope everyone has had a nice weekend so far. I am hoping you must have read my previous review of the Dr Organic Vitamin E Oil which is reviewed here. This is the much awaited sequel. so, I will just jump right into it.
The Dr Organic Brand
I have always seen the Dr Organic brand in Holland and Barrett which is where I bought this oil. I know the brand mainly for their Manuka Honey which always looks enticing but somehow I never bothered buying it. Dr Organic is a skincare brand which prides itself in producing organic products to the highest and purest quality they can muster which is music to my organic product loving ears.
I quite like the packaging given the price. It comes in a glass jar which feels quite expensive and sturdy which is good. It's not very heavy but it does fit in well in my travel makeup bag when i am travelling so that is very good in my books. It does have an outer packaging but it's not really important to keep it.
Dr Organic describes it as an intensive, emollient moisturising cream and i absolutely agree with them. Its major (or star) ingredient is Organic Vitamin E predominantly in a moisturising formula. It also contains Aloe Vera, Shea Butter, Panthenol, Cocoa Butter, Wheat Germ Oil, Bergamot Oil and Sweet Almond Oil which are all naturally derived emollients and antioxidant. It is super hydrating, rich in texture and very moisturising. I can't really say it has a particular scent or fragrance but it does not smell bad. According to the Dr Organic website, this cream is suitable for scars, stretch marks, ageing skin and dry skin but it is can be used for many more uses and in my case, it has been superb during the winter season fir hydrating my skin and keeping my acne and acne scars under control.
I am not going to lie to you; this cream does really come off really thick and truly, a little goes a long way. Although it has a thick consistency, it does not feel greasy when applied. I am sure many people will prefer not to use this for their face and i understand why given its consistency. However, I use it on my face only at night and ocassionally in the morning. It really sinks into my skin fast so the thick consistency is only for a short while as my skin readily absorbs it.
As stated earlier, i use this only at night and ocassionally during the day if i feel my skin feels a little dry which is really rare. I apply this straight after the Vitamin E Oil (reviewed here). When I first started using it, it felt a little heavy straight after i applied it but it got absorbed within a short time so it was fine. These days, i don't even notice how heavy it feels on my skin. If you have dry skin, i think this cream will be suitable for you especially during the winter or drier seasons. If you are combination to oily skin like me, you may want to test run it for a couple of nights to see how you fare but i am pretty sure you will enjoy it.
Every time I use this cream at night, I always wake up to really soft skin which has been really refreshing this winter season. I really like this cream and using it together with the Vitamin E Oil has brought really significant improvements to my skin which has been visible to the boyfriend and my close friends. It is definitely not a quick fix as i stated in my precious review of the Oil, it took me a little more than a month to see significant differences in fading away of Post Acne Scars and Blemishes. In terms of skin texture and softness, I saw significant differences overnight and a massive improvement within a week of using this cream. I have not broken out at all using this and that was my biggest fear instead it has helped clear my ocassional Acne and i have not broken out at all except for a few naughty hormonal fellas which were very short lived.
Again, I got this from Holland and Barret for £7.39 but i got it together with the Vitamin E Oil and they had an offer of buy one get one half price like they always do which is massive bargain seeing that i still have a good quantity of this cream left as i use only very,very little every night.
I really love the Vitamin E Organic Cream range from Dr Organic and it has really changed my skin with some other changes which i have made with my skin care. It's definitely worth a try regardless of what kind of skin you have. I can imagine that ladies with very dry skin or dry skin will like this and if you have oily skin, it's still worth a try because it will help balance out hydration and moisture levels.
That's it folks. I hope you have enjoyed this review like the previous ones. I am sorry i have been a little erratic with my blog post but you know sometimes life gets in the way and i have had a few things going on but i will be back with a grind soon. I have taken tonnes of pictures so that's always a good sign to watch out for more posts. Thanks for sticking by me and see you in my next post..toodles..x
