I've read so many threads with people raving about Rose Hip Oil and would like to know what it is that's so good? I've been meaning to try but keep forgetting.

EB users, please tell me why you love it & the benefits to your skin original.gif

Thank you!

The theory behind it is that it is very high in vitamin c, which assists with skin repair and regeneration. In reality, I use it because it feels and smells luxurious, and makes my skin glow.

It doesnt smell very nice, but it does make your skin glow.

The best way to use it is straight after a shower and your skin is still damp. It absorbs quicker that way. I only use it at night, its just too greasy for daytime.

I have tried a few brands and some are definitely better than others. I personally love the A'Kin and Trilogy RH oils, but there are others that I really didn't like. PP, maybe you tried a bad one?

I have some, and I use it because I have it.  i don't find it has done anything miraculous for my skin.  In winter, it's a great moisturiser.  That's about it.  It does smell funny.

Am I the only one who thinks it smells like you've put cooking oil on your face - makes me feel greasy and nauseous when I use it? Ill be the one person who hates it!

Nope didn't like it at all. Didn't do a single thing for me.

I used it on my face for a week, just a small amount. The following week I was covered in those little white dots and they still haven't seemed to go away..

Not a fan here. I don't use oil on my skin routinely but use avocado oil on the baby and really like it. I've used it on myself occasionally. Not all brands are the same though, some are literally green and smell like lunch, others are more amenable to skin application!

When I tried it, my skin looked soft and glowing.  Then a few days later I had a major pimple break out.  It doesn't seem to agree with me at all.

I don't like it either and I have dry skin, but I LOVE the Body Shop's hand cream with rose hip oil in it to help combat the age spots appearing on my once lily white hands.
But that cream has other stuff in it, and it smells like roses original.gif

If you look and feel greasy after using RO, you are using too much. A drop or two (at most) is all that is needed for your entire face.

I've used the Trilogy one every morning for a few years. I do love the way it makes my skin feel and improves the appearance of it. I have very dry skin and I can tell when I haven't used it as my skin feels 'tight'. As with everything it obviously doesn't suit every skin type.

Also my friend who has very pale skin says it leaves an orange tinge on her skin so she doesn't like it. I'm olive skinned so I can't really tell.

I am not sure if I read it somewhere (on the packaging) or someone told me, but it is suggested to use it at night rather than in the morning as going out in the sun with it on can have an affect on your skin?  

My skin has never been as good as it has with rosehip oil , but I agree that the smell doesn't do it for me!!

I tried Rosehip Oil due to the glowing reviews on EB.  I have very, very sensitive skin that reacts at the slightest provocation.  I've found that Rosehip Oil has left my skin glowing and with reduced wrinkles.  It sounds very "advertising-ploy"-ish, but I definitely find that applying every night reduces the depth of my crows feet.  I will say that my eyes are sometimes irritated by it when I sweat and the oil reaches my eyes - that stings!!!  It has definitely been a revelation for me, though...after having stuck through the initial breakouts!

After I read some very favourable reviews on EB, I tried it, only at night. Didn't make any difference to my skin at all and certainly didn't encourage me to continue to use it, once the bottle had finished.

I have to say I love it too  wub.gif! I agree that some brands are better than others- the trilogy and A'kin ones are my favourites. I am very fair skinned so I only use at night after a shower as I don't want to get sunburnt. I have combination skin and have had no issues with breakouts. I only use 2/3 drops at a time. People started complementing my skin about a week after I started using it.

I've found it useful for fading surgery scars. I can't say for sure that they wouldn't have faded on their own, but scars from other operations where I didn't use it do stand out more now.

I use sukin rose hip oil.  A few drops for face and neck after a shower most mornings and night.  It deffinately has helped my skin appear clearer and fresher.  My wrinkles are not as visible anymore and my Dh asked me why was I wearing make up the other day ( I wasn't!).

I've used another brand before and gave it up after a few week but this one I've used daily at least once for about 2.5-3 months now...love how my skin is clearer and softer.  I have a scar on my forehead that's heaps less obvious too.

Agree that it's greasy if you use too much.  3/4 drops when skin is already damp is enough.

I'm another who bought it after reading reviews here on EB! I bought the Sukin rose hip oil and have been us inning it for about 4 weeks, I have very sensitive combination skin and I have found it to be wonderful! Doesn't seem to make my skin any more oily than it already is and I use it morning and night, but only 2 drops on my entire face, even under my make up. Wish I'd discovered it years ago!

ETA I haven't found that it smells unpleasant, rather doesn't seem to have much smell at all.
