What: 100% certified organic rosehip oil - works as a moisturiser, serum & treatment in one.
For: Anyone! Dry and dehydrated skin can use this twice a day either under moisturiser or in place of moisturiser - your skin will drink this up! Otherwise, ‘normal’ skin types would benefit just using this at night or a few times a week as a replenishing & nourishing treatment.
Review: Rosehip oil. I’d heard the hype. But I’d never really got around to trying it. I was wooed by other products with their many magic ingredients and fancy-pants added extras. But with no fillers, no additives, no fragrances, this is one hard-working little miracle oil, and I’m glad I finally got around to trying it. This one by Trilogy is 100% natural and certified organic, and the “full list of ingredients” is rosa canina (rosehip) seed oil and nothing else. As I’ve mentioned before on this blog, two of my primary concerns are acne scarring & fine lines, and rosehip oil is the perfect product to address both of these. My skin felt instantly nourished as soon as I put the oil on at night, and when I woke up in the morning I had baby soft skin with a lovely glow - restored as though my skin had a cup of herbal tea and nap! Little lines appeared smoother, and whilst there are no miracles to report on the acne scarring front (these babies have been with me for 5+ years, so I accept that it will take longer than one month to see any difference), I did notice that an existing blemish seemed to heal quicker and has left no visible redness. Even if you don’t have to worry about lines or scarring or stretch marks, I think all skin would benefit from applying the oil once a day or a few times a week as a treatment, as skin is visibly smoother & has a gorgeous glow after use.
Application tips: I use this twice a day (my skin is quite dehydrated from the cold weather here), and if wearing makeup on top I just use a wee couple of drops and let it sink in before applying anything on top, I haven’t had any problems with foundation being too ‘slippery’ on top.
Clean creds: 100% natural & certified organic.
Verdict: Believe the hype. Rosehip is a hit.
