BLACKMORES @ Natural Vitamin E Cream Range

As we get older, you may notice your skin isn't as smooth or tight as it once was.
Your skin may be dried, more fragile and thinner than it used to be.
This may due to the internal factors such as lifestyle, stress, emotions, hormones etc, but it may also be the harsh environment and nutrient deficiencies that caused the impact on the structure and function of skin which may contribute to skin irregularities such as dry skin.
This is why it is important to always protect and take care of your skin by selecting skin care products that are right for you.
Recently, BLACKMORES, the leading natural supplement brand from Australia has brought their range of high quality natural skincare products that catering to different skin needs to Malaysia!
I was really excited to check out the whole range at BLACKMORES, Feel The Natural Effect Of Vitamin E event last week.



The entire BLACKMORES Natural Vitamin E cream range is a natural skincare product which helps to moisturize and protect dry skin, nourish and soothe skin, and prevent moisture loss.
It contains a source of natural Vitamin E together with lanolin, avocado oil, apricot kernel oil and vitamin A, which has no artificial colours or fragrances at all.



BLACKMORES always believes the importance of supporting the skin's health from the inside out, so the Natural Vitamin E cream has been launched in 1978, which has been part of the BLACKMORES range for almost 40 years.
They started formulating high-quality nourishing skin care products in the 1970s based on natural ingredients such as avocado, apricot kernel oil with a special mixed tocopherol vitamin E blend.



According to Naturopath from BLACKMORES, Jeannie Kwa, Vitamin E is fat-soluble antioxidant naturally present in healthy skin, which provides protection as it functions as a skin conditioner and to protect skin cells from environmental damage after applying it to the skin's surface.
On the other hand, Lanolin also has a very similar function to our skin's natural sebum.
Both lanolin and sebum form a protective waterproof barrier on the skin and act to protect the skin and keep it from becoming dry, battle and cracked by dehydration.
The BLACKMORES Natural Vitamin E Cream range consist of a basic moisturizing cream in 50g tube and a range of three facial moisturizers in 50g pump bottles for different skin conditions, such as brightening, protection and anti-aging.



BLACKMORES Natural Vitamin E Cream Skin Barrier helps to protect the skin from the harsh environment and hydrates and softens the skin.
It contains:
#1 Depollutine (a moisturizing algae), a blend of arginine PCA with Phaeodactylum tricornutum, a moisturizing microalgae.
#2 Phytovie, a copolymer conditioning oils that help to provide a barrier to environmental pollutants.
#3 Vitis Vinifera (grape) seed oil that riches in omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids that form a film on the skin, providing a layer of protection from environmental pollutants.

BLACKMORES Natural Vitamin E Cream Firm & Smooth helps to moisturize, firm the skin and reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles.
It contains:
#1 Dermcom features Crocus crysanthus (snow crocus) bulb extract which improves skin firmness and skin elasticity.
#2 Tamanu (Calophyllum inophyllum) seed oil that contains fatty acids (including calophyllic acid) which are emollient and function to fill in the cervices of fine lines, increase skin softness and smoothness, and improve the overall appearance of skin.



BLACKMORES Natural Vitamin E Cream Skin Bright helps to moisturize and promote radiant skin.
It contains:
#1 Licorice root extract standardized to 95% glabridin (an antioxidant).
#2 Glabridin to encourage a brighter complexion.
#3 Wakame seaweed extract helps to promote the appearance of a lighter and brighter complexion.

BLACKMORES Natural Vitamin E Cream + Lanolin is a rich and soothing cream which helps to deeply moisturize and protect dry skin.
It contains:
#1 7% natural lanolin that has strong emollient, penetrating and emulsifying properties and also helps prevent moisture loos by locking moisture into skin and is suitable for both body and face.
 

After cleansing, gently massage a small amount of cream evenly over skin.
It suggests to use twice a day for best results.
The texture of all the 4 types of creams are almost the same.
It's white colour cream and no fragrance smell at all.
Though the texture is thick, it's not oily at all, and very quickly absorbed into the skin.
It is good to use as a moisturizer for hand, body as well as face.



I first knew about the BLACKMORES Natural Vitamin E Cream + Lanolin is through the famous Chinese actress, Fan BingBing.
According to the online research, she is the one who made the sales of the product exploded in Australia.
Over 2 million tubes of BLACKMORES Natural Vitamin E Cream has been sold out so far internationally.
Every time when I visiting Australia, I always restock this cream so that I have enough to use for the whole year. :)
For me, the texture is slightly thick and creamy, so I only use it as my moisturizer at night time to restore the moisture and keep skin hydrated and calm, especially when I sleep inside the air-conditioner room.



The BLACKMORES Natural Vitamin E Cream range is currently available exclusively in all Watsons Malaysia stores.
The BLACKMORES Natural Vitamin E Cream + Lanolin is selling @ RM35.00 for a single tube, and the range of facial moisturizers are @ RM65.00 for each pump bottle.
