I puffy heart my Vitamin Shoppe, I'm there once a week... Eep!
I'm not 100% sure if we get the full benefit from the topical vit E in terms of our supplementation needs, but it certainly doesn't hurt to have the extra! I mean, it makes sense that there would be *some* benefit from it, since there are such things as topical calcium, vitamin D, ect. But, I don't rely on it as my only source of E, if that makes sense. I treat it like my multi-vitamin- just a fail safe, catch all, and bonus :)
