Brand/Product: Sukin Rose Hip Oil.
Price: I bought mine for $19.99 from Priceline for a 25 ml bottle. You can also grab it at various pharmacies.
Why We Love It: It’s Vegan and Sukin have a commitment to environmental sustainability. Their Rose Hip Oil is 100% organic.
I was sceptical about using rose hip oil on my skin as my skin tends to be oily and so I’ve mostly used oil free moisturisers. Consequently I was very pleasantly surprised to find how great rose hip oil was on my skin! I find rose hip oil feels light and absorbs really easily. It feels really great to be putting something natural on my skin.
Generally people use rose hip oil on their skin as a serum under a moisturiser at night. However, I found I have no need for a moisturiser on top of the rose hip oil and simply use the rose hip oil alone after cleansing at night. I need four drops only of rose hip oil for my face and neck so the bottle lasts ages. A great tip from Emma’s mum is to use rose hip oil on your chest to combat the sun damaged look so many Aussie women have in that area. Just be careful not to get this orange oil on clothes or towels though. Perhaps the stain would wash out, but I haven’t put this to the test.
Verdict (Yay or Nay): Yay! I should have given rose hip oil a try years ago.
