I am new here but I was so amazed with the results that I wanted to share and maybe help someone else. I am getting a few wrinkles in between my eyes and under my eyes so I have tried multiple creams and a few did show some results but not so much as I would like. I have always heard that Vitamin e was good for scars so I thought that maybe it would be good for wrinkles also. I had e in 400 iu so I broke one open and rubbed it on my wrinkles before bed and when I woke up the wrinkles were drastically reduced!!!! I am so shocked at the results Of just one use!
