As a big lover of Rosehip Oil I was disappointed in myself when I realised I hadn’t actually reviewed any Rosehip Oils on the blog. Naughty blogger! Moving on, I wanted to share with you 2 of my favourite Rosehip Oils that I’m currently using. One highend, one drugstore. Is there a difference? Read on to find out…
What Pai says about their Rosehip Oil, “is a unique formula which works to help reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks, fine lines and UV damage in all skin types. It is infused with concentrated fruit hip oil, with twice the regenerative sterols and five times the caretonoids of seed oil and delivers Trans-Retinoic Acid directly to the epidermis, which converts to Vitamin A to boost the skin’s natural healing process.”
Pai Skincare is known for their organic skincare range using high quality ingredients. What’s unique about their Rosehip Oil, is its not purely Rosehip Oil but has a comobination of other fruits and seeds. Personally I think it smells, looks and feels the same as pure Rosehip Oil. In the evening I apply 2 drops and push into my skin them massage into my face. The following morning I notice that my skin is plumper and looks hydrated. I noticed when I first started using this my skin had cleared up and I wasn’t getting any blemishes. Not sure if it was just the oil or my skincare routine, but the Pai Rosehip Oil definitely helped. The downside is, its approximately $44 for 30ml and you have to keep in mind, generally speaking organic Rosehip Oil goes off after 6 months so you could be potentially wasting more than half a bottle….
What Trilogy says about their Rosehip Oil, “Rosehip oil’s potent natural actives make it highly effective for scars and stretch marks and other skin concerns including dehydrated and ageing skin. Our rosehip expertise ensures the finest quality oil with minimum 80% essential fatty acid (omega 3 and 6) and fatty acid (omega 9) content.”
Onto the drugstore alternative, my first foray into facial oils, the well-known Trilogy Rosehip Oil. I first started using Trilogy Rosehip Oil about 5 years about when my skin was spottier. After a couple of months using it I noticed that my acne scarring had reduce and it had helped speed up the healing process for blemishes. I’ve also used their Rosehip Oil Antioxidant + and find it does the same job as pure Rosehip Oil. Trilogy Rosehip Oil retails for $19.99 for 20ml and is typically seen on offer so you can usually get it for cheaper. I highly recommend buying a smaller bottle to minimise wastage as you should throw it away after 6 months of it being open. Organic products tend to have a shorter shelf life as there are not added chemicals to keep it fresh.
And the winner is….
Pai Skincare Rosehip Oil is my new fave! The results were instant and my skin has never looked so good. I really look forward to using this oil at night because I know the following day my skin will look fresh and hydrated. I can’t promise that I’ll repurchase it as its quite expensive and the Trilogy Rosehip Oil is still an amazing product at half the price. If you’re wanting to try Rosehip Oil I highly recommend checking out the Trilogy range as they have even smaller bottles, so you can try it out without the big investment.
