Why you need Rosehip Oil

Rosehip Oil has been around for a while now, it was one of those craze products which received a lot of hype. I am sure you were left wondering if it was really worth it and if you should be adding it into your skincare regime or not.

Well I am here to tell you – DO IT!

Rosehip oil is a fruit oil that is extracted from the hip of the rose. It is the fruit which is actually left behind once the flower has bloomed and lost its petals. I do think a lot of people get this confused with Rose Essential Oil.

There are many Benefits of using Rosehip Oil;

·         Natural source of Vitamin E & C
·         Natural source of Essential Fatty Acids
·         Natural source of Antioxidants
All of that aside, I wanted to talk to you about my personal experience with Natural Instinct Rejuvenating Rosehip Oil – Certified Organic (yippie) with Antioxidant and Omega Boost.

I personally have struggled with my skin hydration levels & also a mild butterfly type rash for years. When it was first suggested that I try rosehip oil, I will admit – I thought there was no way a ‘simple oil’ would be able to fix either, let along both issues. I am so happy to be able to tell you, I WAS WRONG.

I started by only applying 2-3 drops underneath my night time moisturiser every 2-3 nights. My skins appearance improved dramatically overnight. It appeared more supple and like my tired fine lines has been reduced. To be honest, my skin looked younger and healthier – I know big claims. With continued use I was really able to see a reduction in the redness on my cheeks. What set this oil apart from others for me was the light weight non-greasy consistency of it; I didn’t feel like a big shiny oil slick after applying. It is now a weekly necessity in my skincare routine.

I have also tried using rosehip oil under my morning cream, but as I am time poor in the morning I don’t think I have ever been able to allow it enough time to truly sink in prior to applying foundation. I will definitely have to give it a go on the weekends but it’s just not something I remember as I am happy enough with the affects from just night time use.

Natural Instinct Rejuvenating Rosehip oil is also jam packed full of other skin nourishing extras; 
  • CAMELLIA OIL - Rich in vitamins A, B, E and high in oleic acid to help promote skin elasticity, improves skin hydration and helps prevent the signs of ageing.
  • SEABUCKTHORN EXTRACT - Rich in Omega 7, essential fatty acids and natural tocopherols making it an excellent anti-aging ingredient. Improves skin suppleness and helps rebuild skin cell structure.
  • ROSEMARY EXTRACT - High source of natural antioxidants to help restore and protect the skin from environmental free radical damage.

Do you use a rosehip oil? I would love to hear about your own personal experiences.

  1. I love rosehip oil at the moment, I have been using it to help with my acne and acne scarring and it has been working wonders for me! It's also just so hydrating and good for calming irritated skin too. The wonder oil!

  2. I use a pure rosehip oil on my face at night and it has been amazing for me too. I love that it leaves me really moisturised and glowy. I like that this one has a mix of nourishing ingredients though. Great review :)

  3. I have not tried anything with Rosehip oil. I think it's about time I do though :)

  4. I loooooove rosehip oil. I use it in so many ways!! Under moisturiser at night and a drop mixed into my moisteriser in the morning. I've also tried mixing it in with foundation for a dewy light coverage on weekends.

  5. Rose hip (and many other facial oils) is an absolute staple in my skincare routine! I don't think I could live without it! My skin is so much more moisturised and plump, and it really does gradually help fade acne scars.

  6. I've never used rosehip oil before, however I may have to give it a try.

  7. I love rosehip oil! My mum introduced me to it when my normally oily skin became dry and flaky all the time. It works well to keep my skin supple and smooth :)
