Drew Barrymore Slathers This $12 Vitamin E Oil All Over Her Face
The actress loves using NOW Solutions E-Oil, a grocery store find with antioxidant-rich ingredients.
Drew Barrymore has yet to let us down when it comes to her beauty recommendations. During her #BeautyJunkieWeek series on Instagram last year, she gave her followers the full rundown on everything from the best eye creams for correcting dark circles to how she used the aloe plant in her backyard to treat a strange skin reaction.
So at this point, it goes without saying that one of her recent favorites, NOW Solutions E-Oil (Buy It, $12, amazon.com), is worth investigating.
"I am obsessed with this brand called NOW," Barrymore revealed at a recent event for Emsculpt. "They have the purest form of vitamin E I've found in a dropper. I just take that and put it all over my face." She had also previously shouted out the product on her Instagram. "It's the best to just slather on," she wrote. "It has a dropper and it is very clean." (Related: The $18 Acne Treatment Drew Barrymore Can’t Stop Talking About)
"Clean" doesn't have a standard definition in beauty, but it's generally defined as containing only ingredients that have been shown to be safe to use on skin. The NOW vitamin E oil only has two ingredients, which are generally considered safe: pure vitamin E and organic extra virgin olive oil. Plus, the company has info on how it sources its ingredients and its manufacturing practices on its website.
Clean ingredient list aside, the oil has potential anti-aging perks worth noting. Vitamin E is a popular skin-care ingredient since it's been shown to protect skin from free-radical damage. And olive oil serves similar purposes. In fact, it's believed to have antioxidant properties superior to those of pure vitamin E, as well as anti-inflammatory benefits.

NOW products are sold at a lot of health food stores, and you can also score the oil for under $12 on Amazon. At that price, you might as well slather it on liberally like Drew has been doing.
