I have dry skin prone to eczema when I don't take care of it properly. This oil is amazing! When my skin isn't suffering from eczema, it keeps my skin supple, hydrated and smooth. What I like to do is moisturise ny skin with my usual moisturiser then at night before I go to bed I get 3-4 drops and rub it all over my face and neck concentrating on areas prone to dryness, and the next morning my skin is fresh looking and smooth and hydrated (still have to moisturise because I naturally have dry skin). I've also found that rosehip oil also effectively diminishes scars as it has gotten rid of some of mine, so that's an added bonus. HOWEVER rosehip oil, just like any other oil, DOES NOT work well during my eczema flare ups. During these times, it kind of just sits on my skin and doesn't absorb and it seems to irritate the skin, enhancing inflamed dry flaky spots which is horrible, but I'm not surprised because the only thing that workes during eczema flare ups were my prescribed creams from the doctor. So I don't suggest using rosehip oil on eczema affected areas. That's not to say that using it on dry patches is bad because it works amazing, just not on eczema patches. So when my skin is in good condition, this acts as a lotion on top of my moisturiser to further hydrate and prevent my skin from going dry and terrible! Love love!
After using a rosehip oil sold at the health food shop and costing a little more than Sukin I thought I would give it Sukin go as it came with a free day moisturizer. It was thick and non absorbent and gave me dry patches and ended up in the bin as did the free day moisturizer that came with it.
A MUST HAVE! I was skeptical about using an oil on my face, but this oil is amazing! Use this twice a day. Has helped with my acne scarring :)
I don't have major problem with my skin. It is quite dry on my cheeks and around my mouth. I have a spot on my left cheek that just won't go away. I purchased this from Priceline when it was on a promotion at $19.90 with a free gift of the Sukin facial moisturiser. So i thought, heck why not. The moisturiser was a big disappointment. Now onto the oil, I've tried other oils before and enjoyed using oils in general. This oil in particular is not especially moisturising on my skin because my skin is dry even in summer now in Australia. But after 2 weeks of applying this every night, my spot started to fade. After 3 months of using it, the spot has totally vanished. I guess the anti oxidant that is said to be the main benefit of rosehip oil really worked. I apply this on a damp face after I spritz Avene thermal spring water all over my face. Instead of massaging it, I pat it on my skin gently and make sure it's soaked in and apply my night moisturiser. Amazing!! Try rosehip oil, not necessarily this brand.
I've only use Sukin rosehip oil but this stuff works miracles! Really good for cold weather skin problems (e.g. dry rash etc.) and other miscellaneous skin issues like dry patches & rashes. Goes on a bit greasy (it is oil..) but absorbs quickly and doesn't leave much of a residue.
Pretty good value for the multitasking rosehip oil :) It's around $18 AUD, probably cheaper than some of the other brands which do rosehip oil, such as Trilogy.
I quite like this stuff. When I used it initially I wasn't that taken with it because my skin was in a bit of a state but now its in better condition - this stuff is really working. Good price too. I can't comment how it compares to other brands since I've only used Sukin.
i use this with the Sukin Facial moisturiser and it really works! i use 2-3 drops and massage it into my face and it leaves me skin so soft and healthy. love it!!!
I had previously used and loved Trilogy's Rosehip Oil, but seeing that Sukin is quite a bit cheaper I gave it a go and it performed just as well.
Like with all other facial oils, I warm up 2-3 drops in my palms, then gently press the oil into my skin. It absorbs quickly, leaving my skin feeling soft, nourished and plump, and has never broken me out. Don't want to be without this.
