Love it! Best moisturiser
I'm 51. I have rosacea. My skin has always been oily but the last few months it has become very dry (due to menopause?). I had tried a few moisturisers but they made me break out. So then I tried Redwin Vitamin E and Evening Primrose Oil from Woolworths. It was so cheap, I figured I had nothing to lose if I tried it. It's fantastic!!! I can slather it on. My skin was SO dry that it has taken a few days to make a difference, but now my skin is soft and more hydrated. I suspect it will become more hydrated over the next few days. It ha...sn't "cured" my rosacea but I certainly didn't expect it to. My skin is still quite red at times, but it's not "angry" - it's not red and sensitive and dry. I hope I continue to get the same benefit from this moisturiser as time goes on. For now, I would certainly recommend it to anyone with dry skin. The thing I don't like - the scent is very strong.

Excellent, affordable, economical size, efficient, does the job!
Redwin have a knack for creating no-frills skin care that is affordable, come in economical sizes and simply do the job! This particular cream is a favourite of mine, it comes in a lovely big jar and it simply lasts and last, I use it on hands, elbows, knees and even face and neck. Just wonderful. The scent is perhaps a little too strong they could make a fragrance-free version in fact I would like to see a scent-free version. This comes in pump or jar form. I have jars of these all over the house, just a perfect product. It sinks in beautifull...y, is not greasy and hydrates and moisturises beautifully, I will be repurchasing. P.S You will often find saintly "Natural" brands like MOO GOO, often pointing out that products like REDWIN are cheap and full of nasties and chemicals. First of all everything is a chemical. REDWIN have always been a long standing consistent Australian brand in the eyes of many consumers and that isn't going to go away, enough with the fear mongering Moo Goo. The ingredients found in REDWIN products are perfectly safe, just ask any toxicologist or Cosmetic Chemist worth their salt!

Needles on your face
Redwin Vit A and E for sensitive skin.
Feels like a thousand needles stinging your face. I normally don't do reviews but this stung / burned my face so badly and it's suppose to be for sensitive skin. Please be warned before buying. sample a little on your face before buying.

I have acne and sensitive skin and I have been using proactiv for years but it came to the point where my face felt dry, I purchased Redwin vitamin E with evening primrose oil and my face feels hydrated and I still have not had one pimple!! I'm very happy with this product. I highly recommend it. Great body and face moisturiser and it's not expensive!

Cheap, & works well.
I've been buying Redwin Vitamin E cream for a few years now. I was looking around for an effective "cheap" moisturiser to use on my legs after shaving, & also on my hands at nite before bed. This one has been wonderful, & works amazing well. A huge 300g jar, for so little money. I think its just over $4.00, & can be found in Coles & Big W. Not sure if Woolies has it, but they probably do.
Made in OZ, too, & this pleases me a lot, as I like to buy Australian whenever I can. It has a very pleasant scent. Not too overpowering.
The only thing I...am not keen on with this product is, just like a lot of other moisturisers & shampoos etc, it contains parabens. These chemicals have been proven to be very bad, & should be avoided as much as possible. Its the reason why I choose not to use this on my face. I use Nivea Soft on my face instead. (see my review). A few years ago, Jennifer Hawkins was advertising this Redwin Vitamin E cream on tv. One reason why I thought I'd give it a go. If she uses it in real life, then its done wonders for her, so it will do wonders for the rest of us! :) If you are after a cheap, effective, moisturiser, you can't go wrong with this one. It lasts for ages. The jar is nice & chunky as well, & not easy to knock over in the bathroom.

I like it BUT...
I purchased this recently and I really like it but I am really disappointed that it is perfumed. If it was fragranced by adding natural oil I wouldn’t mind but it is ‘perfume’ and this puts me off it.
It does make my skin feel smooth though I think I’ll stop using it on my face.
The best on the market there is s reason why it works
Primrose oil helps the skin i advise if you have skin irritations dont apply it on the face.see a dermatologists the primoise oil absorbs the skin for a reason it helps the small enxyme on skin smooth and helps lift the collagen and vitsmin E helps it is an antioxident that helps protects the skin from damage from day to day toxins,and helps the mousterier on a much deeper level.i use it and it works wonders
TOO MUCH CHEMICALS
After a year of applying Redwin Vitamin E cream on my face it just made my acne scars worst . It stretched the acne scars and deepens the scars even more , maybe its due to all the chemical ingredients in it and too much alcohol and parfum which apparently dries up your sensitive skin especially the face.. So do not apply this cream on your face , it will definitely make your acne scars even worst..
I have been diagnosed with PCOS for sometime. I used to have clear skin. However, with this condition, I had massive acne breakout on my cheeks. I have tried many many many products but nothing like this! My acne reduced and I started getting compliments back of my smooth skin! It's cheap and works wonders!!!
I have been using this cream with the primrose oil in it. It is the best cream. Leaves skin so lovely and soft. It isn't thick so it absorbs into the skin really good after a shower or bath
Love this product
Makes my skin feel so soft. makes my face clear and glowing I can not live without it. My teenage daughter loves it to so lucky it's affordable. Thanks for a great product!!!
This product is the best thing on the market
My goodness what a excellent product recently had a hip opp,staples red raw dry itchy we saw the product in woolies,I dab it on at first then went really soft ,my scare is wonderful now also I went to the excema I got on arms legs ,fantastic I've told lots of people about this wonderful product excellent reviews from them ,and the price is wonderful well done
works soooo good!
my dermatologist recommended me to use this product for my skin allergy, it was like I was having psoriasis. during the first 3 days of my my allergy I used cetaphil moisturizer hoping it can heal the inflammation and dryness(thus itching a lot) but unfortunately it was not.thumbs up to this product, it was not irritating at all. mild enough for any skin type.. however, I would recommend to ask your dermatologist first before using any product esp when your skin is super sensitive like mine.
Started using this product a few weeks ago and find it excellent. Its a simple, cheap moisturiser but so effective on dry skin. Better than alot of the more expensive brands
