I love finding inexpensive products that work and what d’ya know? I found a gem quite recently at Guardian pharmacy 🙂 I love browsing pharmacies 😀
This is the Derma Health’s Skin Labs Concentrated Vitamin E Cream. I picked it up because I was intrigued by the high i.u of Vitamin E it says it contains (10,000 i.u/200ml ) and because it was not very expensive – RM39.90/200ml
I tried looking for information online but there’s none on this brand nor product so we’ll just have to go with what we see on the tube right?
Now here’s what I really like about this Concentrated Vitamin E cream. It is absolutely NOT STICKY! I know I said yay to the Kiehl’s Ultra Light Creme de Corps body lotion but so many of you said “Ooh… so expensive…” so if you’d like to try something a little more affordable, this one’s not bad 🙂
When I say “not sticky” I mean it. Once applied on the skin, it feels like nothing at all but yet it eases the feeling of dryness and it seems to help my skin feel better. Oh and here’s another reason I bought it – since it says it contains a high volume of Vitamin E, and since Vitamin E helps with scar healing, I wanted to see if it would help heal and fade the marks on my legs from insect bites etc.
Unfortunately, despite wanting to be a test subject, I’m not very good at applying body lotions consistently. The marks on my legs did fade but I think its to do with time, and less so this cream. Still, it does claim to help reduce lines, and wrinkles and dry skin (Is it supposed to be applied on the face?! It says on the back of the tube you can use it on the face. I wouldn’t but that’s me). It is in fact stated to be good for dry and very sensitive skin but as I have neither, I can’t tell you if it works for that. It did help me recently when I had some very dry skin problems. It was one of the few creams I tried that did alleviate the problem, although it did not cure it.
There is a powdery scent I could do without or maybe if they could make it lighter, but since I apply this at night and then go to sleep, it doesn’t bother me very much. On an overall basis, I say this is a nice little inexpensive find and I will repurchase when I’m done with this tube… but it will take a while 🙂
Pros: Affordable, Absorbs quickly into skin, Not Sticky nor oily
Cons: Fragrance is a bit strong
Oh and here’s the ingredient list if you are wondering about it.
Based on the back of the tube, it says that this lotion is Made in Malaysia. Nice! 🙂 Derma Health Pte Ltd. however, is an Australian owned company – I looked it up online but as I said above, I can’t find much if anything about this brand online so I do not know where else you can find this.
If you are in Malaysia, I got this at a Guardian pharmacy and I expect it should be sold at most major pharmacies nationwide. (Note: I tried looking for it at Watson’s and didn’t find it there) It also comes in a 100ml tube for RM24.90 which doesn’t make economical sense 😛
Have you tried this body cream? Or maybe you have tried other products by this brand or know if it can be found overseas? Drop me a comment! 😀
Derma Health’s Skin Labs Concentrated Vitamin E Cream retails at RM39.90/200ml and RM24.90/100ml. I purchased mine at Guardian pharmacy.

I think I have this with the oats one… Got that prescribed to me by Dr Lim the famous dermatologist dude from Penang. ^.^ Works wonders for me eczema ahahaha.
Really? Prescribed by a derm? That’s something! 🙂 I haven’t seen the oats one, just this one and an oil.
hey, just brought this vitamin e cream @ caring pharmacy. came across ur site when looking for more info. on the company. i think it is the nicest vitamin e cream i’ve tried. not sticky at all. i hope it will really help to fade the scars on my face 🙂
Have you tried Vitacreme B12?? There’s been alot of raves about it and your post reminded me of that product. I haven’t tried it but saw that it was the top third product on sasa.com
Hmm… I haven’t come across that one I don’t think… If its not at the pharmacies, I probably haven’t tried it 🙂
Oh yes. I have tried Vitacreme B12! It is quite pricey but it does lightened some old acne scars 😀
Would love to try this Skinlabs on some old insect bites on my calf 😀 Yay~ Thanks Paris! 😉
ohohoho~! i saw the part where it says “reduce scar visibility” and my eyes light up~!! will look for it XD
I love browsing at watsons and guardian but I hate it when the sales personnel keep trying to recommend stuffs….its their job and all but I wish they can tell whether a customer needs their help or not
Actually if I steer clear of the cosmetics counters, I never get bugged at the pharmacies 😉 In Guardian, this cream is usually where the body creams are, not where the “branded” cosmetics are, if that helps.
I’m glad that you tried this one..I’m going to get this as soon as I’m done with my Bio Oil. I tried the oil version of the same brand and I absolutely love it. It absorbs into my skin pretty quickly. It the most comfortable oil moisturizer I’ve ever used! Sometimes i even use it as my night moisturizer, and it absorbs pretty quickly too! (P/S: i have oily skin) I managed to finish a 100 ml bottle in less than a month….pigmented scars on my legs faded a lot, it’s still noticeable but it almost matches my skin tone. Bio Oil’s texture is much heavier, so i had to endure some uncomfortable moments while waiting for my skin to absorb the oil.
Thanks for sharing! I saw the oil too but I didn’t think to try it. Now that you’ve mentioned how nice it is, I might give it a go 😀 The lotion/cream is great for the body and its absolutely not sticky which is great.
i have the same problem with bio oil too.i should try this one ^_~
Hiya Paris! Saw this at Caring Pharmacy and it’s at a promotional price (Pack of 100ml + 200ml) of MYR49/= only 😀
I saw that too – much better deal than buying that small tube separately 😀
Hi paris… I bought the Cream and now it’s on sale at Guardian for RM35.88 / 200ml. I recommend them to my colleagues and I bought all on the shelves! I love the smell coz it reminds me of the Johnson’s baby original Lotion when I was younger. Now the Johnson’s baby has Mineral oil and the scent is different. I seriously love it and so does my bf. He even uses it haha 😛 it helps him sleep better.
I love how moisturising and non-sticky and it’s not thick at all although it’s a cream. It works good so far for stretch marks. I thought of using the oil as well but maybe later on. Thank you Parisfor sharing this. Comparing this to other brands I think this will be for life! 😀
Oh I make my own hair serum and with Vitamin E oil in it, it moisturises the hair as well. Works for me coz I don’t use conditioner.
Hey there! I’ve used this cream and I agree – it’s awesome!
I’m currently in Australia but I purchased this at Watson’s (they only had the 100ml tube there unfortunately!) and it’s better than any vitamin e cream I’ve used here in Australia. I can;t find this cream anywhere here in Perth, or even on eBay.
I love the way it absorbs into the skin, very soft and light, not like the Vitamin E cream I’ve used before where it’s very heavy and sits on the skin. I also love the powdery scent! I guess it’s a personal thing but it makes your skin smell so good and feel so soft! I have used it on my face (when I ran out of my usual face lotion) and you know what? It was great! No breakouts, no clogging, etc. I have oily skin and it didn’t make my skin feel oily or shiny at all. This cream is amazing. I love it! I am going to ask my mum to mail some to me from Malaysia.
Sounds very good. Perfect as a handcream in the office as it absorbs quickly and no sticky feel. Will check it out at Guardians.
do you know where i can purchase it in australia?
As I’m not based in Australia, I’m unable to help. Perhaps someone else reading this might.
Where I can buy this product I’m living in Dubai
Paris B says
I’m afraid I don’t know. I don’t even see it in Malaysia anymore
I’m so excited to try this product, I’ve been looking for something to take away scars, I’ve tried a natural product that didn’t do the job, so I am really hoping this works. Thanks so much for the information, I can’t wait to give it try!
why the colour of cream skinlabs product 824699 MFG 03/2010 RM 38.00 is yellow (like mango)
colour cream product BN:1108233 MFG:31.08.2011 (promotion RM49.00) is white and yellow.
Isn’t this cream loss material ?
but in the ingredients says, got Triethanolamine!!!!! its dangerous chemical!! go search in the internet!
i used this for my first pregnancy, and i didnt have any stretch marks. now i am pregnant again, and i am using this product again. in fact i so love this cream that i’ve started using it on my face as a moisturizer.
I use both the Therapy oil and the cream for my face. Yes I would say you can\’t find any product that so affordable and works well on your face. How I came to know SkinLabs. My usual facial products was running low and which I bought from beauty salon, for a set which consist of cleanser, essence oil, day and night cream that cost me more than RM1000, I need to go on a trip and need to replenish them but the salon was out of stock therefore I went to Guardian hoping get something similar. I bought the therapy oil and Vitamin E cream. After each wash I apply therapy oil on my face and neck by giving a light massage followed by the Vitamin E cream. I started using this on 11th May and is 18 days now, I m so happy with my facial complexion…like I have a face lift done and blemishes are lighten, my face is whiten too. I was on skype with my friend and he asked what I done to my face that I look fair and tone up. You have to try to believe…is so amazing. Paris B, I decided to know more of SkinLabs that\’s how I came across your blog…you are right there isn\’t any web on this…we need to congratulate each other for knowing SkinLabs. Cheers!!!!Maggie
I bought this at watson for only rm5, suprisingly i know
This cream works like wonders to my skin (face). Been using the product for quite sometimes, from march until now. I used to suffer from face acne back then… And i went to dr.ko for consultations and meds. Then i went to drugstore and found this product and i thought it could help fade the acne scars n guess what, it does!
Can this cream help with the sunburn effect?
Paris B says
Not sure what you mean, but if you have sunburn, try first putting aloe vera gel until it heals. Then, apply a moisturiser to help with the dry skin.
