You see during my oil venture I've used Jojoba, Almond, Papaya, Coconut, Carrot, Apricot, Black Cumin (hair), Castor - for the hair too, Argan, Grapefruit, Grapeseed, Hemp, Olive Oil, Peach Kernel, Vitamin E...& I'm probably missing a lot more off that list, I love to experiment with oils for my skin & hair but an oil that has escaped me was Rosehip Oil. Rosehip oil is good for all skin types and as mentioned before even oily, it helps regulate natural sebum production. If you've got skin concerns such as wrinkles, scars, burns, stretch marks, pigmentation, dry & sensitive skin, sun damage, acne & acne scarring. This oil can be brilliant for you.

Amelia Moss, they were so kind to send me a Rosehip oil but also Rose water, I had tried rose water before but I'm sure it was for cooking and wasn't pure.
From my own experience, I was amazed at how it reminded me of more a dry oil the way it's absorbed into the skin very quickly, doesn't sit or make me look like it's a new place they can strike oil. I like to apply it after a cream moisturiser if necessary or use alone, which is mostly how I use it. Since stripping back my skin care & using purely oils my skin has been thriving, I do feel diet can come into it as well as just good skincare. Since using this in rotation with another oil previously reviewed it's helped diminish any pigmentation, I know how any pigmentation mark on my skin can become quite dark but I'm extremely surprised how light in appearance it's become even from when the spot was going down and started to scar. That started to sell me even more. Amelia Moss Rosehip Oil comes with a dropper which makes it easier to control. I used my dermaroller for my cheek & applied Rosehip Oil afterwards and if you've ever used a dermaroller you'll know the skin is healing & repairing itself and can get a little dry - Nope, not with this! Adding the rose water as a toner has been a welcomed addition, it's a relaxing but quite enhancing smell on the senses. Doesn't dry out the skin and any irritation it calms while helping remove bacteria & decreases inflammation. With a lot of the same properties as Rosehip oil I find it more gentler but effective than other toners. Other great uses, eye brightener, makeup remover, drops in the bath, use after shaving (male or female), add rose water in a travel spray bottle and refresh your makeup or skin throughout the day.
Have you tried Rosehip oil or Rose water before?
