When I finally manage to get my nasty oily spot prone skin under control I never know what to do next. I don't like stripping it of any more oil and yet many face creams are far too rich and put me back in exactly the same position.
Rosehip Oil is a wonder product that I have read alot about in the blogasphere lately so when I saw that you could get it through MyPure I jumped at the chance to try it for myself.
Rosehip Oil is described as a multivitamin for the skin- a claim that is both bold and promising. I was a little dubious about adding more oil to my already oil-prone skin as my only other encounter with a facial oil has ended very badly. However this oil promised to help the condition of my skin as well as healing scars and acne.
Kosmea's Rosehip Oil comes in a 20ml glass bottle with a dropper/pipette applicator. It seems easy enough to use- drop 2-3 drops into damp skin and massage in the oil. I have never used a pipette type applicator before and for me it took some getting use to in order to control the oil but i think it is pretty easy once you have the hang of it and it is certainly the best way to control the oil.
The first thing I noticed is that this product really is oily. I know I should have expected that but it still took me by surprise. Saying this I found it easily absorbed into the skin by rubbing it in circular motions without leaving any residue or stickyness. I did notice that my face had a oily shimmer to it after using this product so I would suggest use this in the evening to give it a bit longer to skin into the skin.
The next thing to note is the smell. Rosehip is NOT the same a roses. This is something that I didn't know. You can imagine my surprise! As this is just very concentrated Rosehip it is quite a strong scent. Personally I can't say that it is the best scent in the world but it is bearable.
After applying this product my skin was super soft the next day and I noticed that my skin seemed smoother and more re-textured. I have yet to see much difference in the redness in my face from scarring but this could be something that takes more time.
In all this product surprised me- but in a good way! I am glad I took the plunge and tried it as it is certainly good for my skin and I will continue to use my bottle!
