Is anyone here a rosehip oil fan? I'm keen to give this wonder oil a go, but there are so many brands out there. Any recommendation on which brand and how do you use it? Any advice is welcome.
Hi Raksha, rosehip oil has done wonders for my skin. It helped clear up some dark spots on my face. I use Trilogy, but there are lots of brands out there. Look for one on sale before you buy. Sukin is 50% off at Priceline at the moment.
Thanks for the assurance GeeJ. I'm also hoping that rosehip oil can help lighten some of the pigmentation on my cheeks. Do you apply straight on, or mix it with your daily facial lotion?
I tend to apply it alone on certain days, but you can try different things to see what works for you since you may find it a bit greasy. But definitely include it in your routine. You'll see a difference.
Hey Raksha, yes I do use RHO!! Very religiously and have used quite a few different brands! My top faves are: Trilogy Antioxidant + RHO, Antipodes Divine Facial Oil, Kosmea RHO, Thursday Plantation RHO.
I love to use it either immediately after hyaluronic acid/facial essence/facial hydrating mist/serum (whichever one I am currently using lol), apply it to damp skin and follow immediately with moisturiser to lock in all that hydration. Don't use too much!! A couple of drops, half a pea size max for full face! I also love adding just a teeny tiny couple of drops of RHO into my moisturiser for a extra moisture boost, really does add a extra something ♡♡
Good luck xx
I got onto RHO after hearing members rave about it here on the forum. I'm now a convert. I use it instead of moisturiser because my skin can't absorb too many products. I'm one of those rare people who DON'T have dehydrated skin.
I've used a few brands &, as long as it's pure RHO I think they all work much the same. I've tried a couple of serums with RHO as a base, mixed with other ingredients: they didn't work as well on my skin as the plain old RHO. I just rub in a few drops after cleansing. My skin used to be oily, but it's not as oily now. I get fewer zits too. I used to have red spots from pimples that I'd had weeks or months ago. With the RHO, those spots healed up completely & I can even skip foundation now!
Yes I have used Sukin Rosehip Oil and it really has a nice fragrance and moisturisers the skin feels silky and smooth.
So many beautiful oils out now days so hard to choose from. Definitely prefer natural oils not man-made.
In my view all the different brands of rosehip oils are generally the same what varies is the packaging, additives, claims on the label and of course the price!
If you are looking to save a bit of money Rosehip Oil tends to be cheaper to buy from specialist Aromatherapy\Massage Stores generally referred as a carrier oil. It's the same rosehip oil you will find in named brands just with less packaging\claims & marketing costs recovered in the price.
I love rosehip oil, it is a 'dry' oil that absorbs quickly and has natural Vitamin A. There are many brands out there but make sure you get one that is at least cold-pressed and organic. Also check the ingredients list bcos some of them are blends and not 100% rosehip oil.
I've used The Ordinary and Sukin, slight preference for The Ordinary as it seems to smell a bit better. I would probably try Trilogy next when it's half price again at Chemist warehouse.
A'kin is supposed to be good as they use CO2 extraction (supposedly even better than cold-pressed), but they include (Rosemary) Leaf Extract in their roseship oil which I'm not too sure about.
I love Rosehip oil. Kosmea is my favourite it's cold pressed and darker than others, They were making Rosehip oil before it became really popular. . Theirs has the botanical name 'Rosa canina fruit oil' many of the cheaper brands use 'Rosa Englantaria'
But of course it's one of the most expensive brands :(.
My dry skin loves rosehip oil. I have tried most of the popular brands. One brand hasn't provided a better result compared to another. I prefer rosehip oil that has a deeper colour as it has more nutrients from brands such as Kosmea and Pai (from Nourished Life). I still buy other brands of rosehip oil when they're on sale.
The only brand that I wasn't impressed with was the one from Blessed by Nature because it has a very pale colour (indicating less nutrients). This oil might be more suitable for someone with oily/combination skin because it seemed to have a lighter consistency and it absorbed a bit more quickly.
I usually use rosehip oil on its own, but sometimes I use it with a moisturiser that doesn't feel nourishing enough.
I'm following this as a reminder next time as a few good recommendations. Thanks for the post Raksha!
I mainly use it to massage the skin on my face and it works perfectly for that - absorbs really easily and always leaves my skin looking glowing.
Have used Trilogy and Sukin before mainly use it on my body especially in winter, great for dry skin.
Ooh yes I've been using it for 20 years and have hardly any pigmentation or fine lines. The darker orange the formula the better. The colour comes from lycopene, the pigment that make tomatoes red. It is an amazing antioxidant and anti aging. I use Trilogy and A'kin.
Yes. Another fan of RHO here.
In my mind there are 3 main types:
Cold press - this is most affordable but the process generates heat (despite the name), so some nutrient is lost in the process. My fav is Sukin.
CO2 extraction (alao called supercritical) - this is more pricey but RHO is of better quality. My fav is Kosmea.
Blend - this is a RHO blend as opposed to pure RHO. Depending on the formulation they suit different people - I found blends often make them take a little longer to absorb. My fav is Antipodes Divine Face Oil.
Hope this helps.
Their are different botanical types as well. I don't really like Rosa Canina Some of my more preferred brands use Rosa Englanteria
I mentioned rosehip oil from a brand called Pai before, but I've just realised that some people may not have heard of this brand:
Nourished Life has this description about the product: "Pai uses volcanically sourced CO2 to gently extract the oil while preserving the complete properties of the plant by not cold pressing. This results in a unique, concentrated "fruit" oil with twice the regenerative sterols and five times the carotenoids of the more regularly used seed oil."
Whoa! Now, that is one DARK rho!
I just checked out that link. It's not a pure rho. Here are the ingredients: Rosa Canina (Rosehip CO2) Seed Extract*, Rosa Canina (Rosehip CO2) Fruit Extract*, Mixed Tocopherols (Natural Vitamin E), Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Extract*
*Certified Organic by the Soil Association (Organically produced 99.8% of product).
I really like these lip pencils, I’ve tried them in two shades, Nude Perfection and Berry Much.
I love milky feet. I have used it a few times over the years. It’s like a face mask for you feet.
This cactus brush is great for exfoliating. I like to use it as a dry brush. I work in short strokes up from the feet and hands towards the body.
