Rosehip oil (RHO) is one of those skincare treats that is raved about in the beauty world. While I was somewhat skeptical about placing oil on my skin, I decided to give it a go. I opted for Sukin because I have recently discovered them and am loving their purifying facial masque.
It has absolutely no nasty ingredients in it and is just simply, RHO. It doesn't contain a preservative which is why it comes in a darkened bottle - its sensitive to heat/light! It contains a glass dropper for dispensing the oil.
It looks a bit like olive oil, but feels very lightweight to use. It blends in easily and doesn't feel greasy or oily but like a light moisturiser. I use it after my night time shower (right before bedtime) as a serum and then use my night cream. I do this probably about 4-5 nights a week. I love how soft and smooth it makes my skin. It seems to have helped fade some dark marks and soothe redness which is awesome. Notice that I said I use it at night - while it isn't super oily, it does seem to wear through foundation so I save it for night time.
The only negative is that it does not smell that pleasant...it reminds me of fish oil capsules. For this reason, I don't like using it during the day because the smell lingers a bit and annoys me. However, the reason it doesn't smell fancy is because, as I said, no nasty chemicals involved! Meaning no perfume/fragrances. So I guess the negative is actually a positive!
As well as hydrating and soothing, it also makes me appear more radiant - this is always good look in the morning :)
Overall I think this is a great way to venture into the world of RHO. I am very glad I bought into the hype because the results are amazing.
Have you tried RHO?
