Most vitamin E creams on the market either have too little of vitamin E in them or have the wrong kind of vitamin E to actually do any good.
The type of vitamin E cream that benefits skin is alpha tocopherol cream. This is the same type of vitamin E found in supplements.
While many products put "vitamin E" on the label, many don't specify which type or how much. I think it's better to use vitamin E creams with prescription from a doctor.
