Khloé Kardashian’s trick for long lashes is this $12 vitamin E oil from Amazon
When it comes to beauty routines, the Kardashians often surprise us. Amongst their more expensive picks, they often use super affordable beauty products that you can find on Amazon. Khloé Kardashian in particular has been highlighting face creams, oils, and serums you can find on the retail giant (like this best-selling anti-aging serum), and now she’s presenting us with yet another Amazon beauty buy: the Kate Blanc Vitamin E Oil.
The $12 vitamin E oil is among Amazon’s top ten best-selling face oils, and it boasts hundreds of five-star reviews.

But since Amazon is home to many highly rated vitamin E oils and serums, you have plenty of options to choose from, whether you want to target your lashes like Khloé, or other skin concerns.
