Rosehip Oil is an oil made from the centre bud of the rose. It’s a potent oil that you can find in many chemist-bought and high-end products because it’s just that good. Rosehip Oil is that over achieving kid you went to school with that was just good at everything. Well, it’s time to be best buddies and start reaping some of the benefits.
Not only does Rosehip oil hydrate the skin it also evens out skin tone and works wonders on fine lines and wrinkles. It lightens pigmentation (my first reason for giving it a rose-hot go!) and with regular use fades any scars from acne.
Rosehip Oil is the perfect treatment for those days when you’ve had a bit too much time in the sun. Slather on this baby along with some aloe vera and vow to never, ever do it again. With it’s antioxidant properties it is also great for oily skinned lasses, making it a true people pleaser.
Here are our top rosehip oil products to make it your new favourite find.
I love cleansing oils. As a former Dermalogica PreCleanse lover (I still love it but just wanted to try some others!) the Dr Lewinn’s is gorgeous and a fraction of the price. Dr Lewinn’s 4 Fusion Cleansing Oil melts away all traces of your days makeup with a mixture of rosehip, tamanu, argan and baobob oils. Add this to your shower caddy now!
Milk & Co’s Body Scrub combines Rosehip Oil and Aloe Vera with rice bran, cinnamon powder and coconut shell to naturally exfoliate the body. It smells good enough to eat and is derived form 95% natural ingredients. Definitely my new favourite body scrub!
The Trilogy AntiOxidant Rosehip Oil boosts the antioxidant’s found naturally in rosehip oil with those of Tomato and Acai to protect your skin from environmental damage (that leads to premature ageing if you’re not careful!)
Oat and Cranberry are also added to the mix for extra nourishing essential fatty acids to promote cell renewal and moisture. It’s the perfect pick for a multi-use protectant and moisture booster to keep your skin looking fresh and young.
