    I took vitamin E capsules for years before I realized it caused skin breakouts. This is what happened to me. Everyone is different. But vitamin E caused me to have some very bad skin problems. Hope this in some small way helps you.

    if you take it internally it wont cause breakouts, but topically it could cause breakouts because it is a very thick oily substancce

    Oily substances will not make you break out. Yes most everyone on this board has very oily skin however it is usually due to excess drying. The glands over react when the skin is too dry causing more oil than necessary and then clogging pores (but this occurs underneath the skin). If you put the oil (Vitamin E) on your face it will not make you break out it will simply reduce the amount of oil that your skin will produce. It's like fighting fire with fire. There are some treatments out there that have you put oil directly on the face in order to stop the oil production. I just wouldn't recommend leaving the oil on your face all day. Do it in short spurts. -- It's worth a try.
