I bought this while in Australia, before I had read the reviews on here. I was mildly concerned about some reports of people breaking out in what they describe as 'cysts' on their faces and necks but as I am not prone to dramatic breakouts like this, I didn't think it would be a problem and was looking forward to the line reducing effect described by some.I was so wrong! After 3-4 weeks of alternate-day use, I was also breaking out in some of the most severe and strange cysts/boil-like eruptions on my cheeks and chin. I have never known anything like it. I swear one of them had its own heartbeat.I was using the oil as a serum i.e. after washing my face in the morning, before applying day cream and spf as usual. I only used it every other day (with a Dr Lewinn's serums on the alternate day) as I was mildly concerned about the reviews on here, and thought that if I avoided using it daily and also exfoliated (with Dermalogica daily microfoliant), the potential for pore blocking would be avoided. So wrong.I have completely stopped using it now and I'm sure that the Trilogoy antioxidant oil was the culprit as I have used pure rosehip oil before with no problem and nothing else in my routine has really changed. I can honestly say my skin has never had such a severe reaction to anything before. What happened on my face sounds similar to that of other reviewers - I wouldn't even describe it as spots - cysts or boils is definitely more appropriate as these were deep under the skin and really painful.I looked over the previous reviewers to see if there was a pattern with who found this product good and who had a severe reaction. Hard to tell. At first I thought those in their 20s were having a good reaction while those mid 30s+ were experiencing boils etc but there's not enough data to draw any certain conclusions. So.... I agree with others - proceed at your peril. I will certainly never touch this stuff again.

This was the first oily substance I've ever used on my face and its effin fantastic! I use this every night straight after cleansing my face.I am in love with my skin, it's nice and hydrated in the morning and my face feels even toned, balanced and happy. I have recently changed my skin care and added the clarisonic and regular exfoliation, so that's probably why my skin looks clearer and even toned, but this oil may have something to do with it too. But, I use it primarily for the intense hydration it provides/locks in straight after cleansing. I find it's more effective on a slightly damp face.That said, it is important you clean your skin thoroughly every night before applying this, otherwise it may lead to clogged pores.

Nope, nope, nope! I got this as a gift at Christmas time and was delighted because I had heard about Trilogy rosehip oil. I have tried different RHOs before without any problems and I was delighted to see the inclusion of anti-oxidants in this version. BUT within a week I had developed big cystic lumps on my cheeks, the likes of which I have never seen before and my skin felt hot to the touch. I persisted, believing that my skin was purging but after three months the inflammation, lumps and redness continued. Eventually I admitted defeat and started using La Roche Posay Serozinc spray and the Toleraine range for sensitive skin. Within days my skin started to recover. So my advice is to proceed with caution and if your skin reacts STOP immediately.

I was already totally in love with the normal Trilogy rosehip oil, then I tried out the Antioxidant+ and somehow it agreed even more with my skin! I put a generous amount on every night before bed and wake up every morning with a serious case of baby face. No fine lines, bright, toned, seriously soft skin AND I barely have any blemishes to speak of anymore. I've even been so confident with my skin lately that I've been ditching the makeup routine all together. A couple of my girlfriends have asked me what I use and I have converted them to Trilogy oil too; they are loving it as much as I do. I don't plan to ever stop using this stuff. It is everything I want in a skincare product with the added benefit of being certified organic.

I always use rosehip oil as I absolutely adore how it makes my skin look and feel. I've been very keen to try this product as I thought since it is rosehip oil with some extras my skin would surely love it even more. Unfortunately I was proven wrong. At first my skin did look lovely and smooth but gradually I started developing tiny spots as well as large cysts that I never ever get. In fact I woke up one morning with two dreadful cysts on my neck which is a very unusual place for any type of blemishes for me. Finally I had to admit this product was the culprit. Having analysed the ingredients I've noticed that caprylic/capric triglyceride is third on the list and it is a well known comedogenic. Be very careful with this product if your skin is sensitive or acne prone. UPDATE: After going back to my regular rosehip oil I can see a massive improvement to my skin after only a day of use.Will never use Trilogy again!

I bought this as an add in to my night time regime as I had heard good things about it. I have dehydrated but not normally sensitive skin. I used it for a week and then I woke up with big red angry lumps all over my face. They are really painful. They are not spots. I haven't changed anything else so I am guessing it must be the oil. I would be really cautious about buying this product as there is no way of knowing wether you would react to it.

Before I started using Rosehip Oil (RHO); I had BAD acne scars and marks literally covering my forehead (I have a massive forehead) and survived by covering it up with a fringe. RHO by Trilogy was the first I used; I found it about 2 years ago and have been using it day & night ever since. My acne scars are all gone; my face is way clearer and smoother! Before that I tried every scar removal cream, gel, lotion I could get my hands on - and nothing worked. RHO + AO is the one I've been using for a while; I can't say there really is a difference between this and the standard RHO. I was a bit concerned that it was an oil at first - I have combo skin, oily T-zone and I'm prone to comedogenic breakouts. But I had no issues at all with it; and my skin loved me for it! I found that the price was a bit higher compared to other brands of RHO - I haven't tried them yet, only because I'm not sure how my skin would react to them and I've only heard good things about Trilogy (natural ingredients, whatnot). But a little bottle can last me for about 6-8 months; I use it twice a day (morning & night) before my moisturizer - and I only ever need 2 drops (any more and it gets too greasy along with my creams). I don't actually mind the smell; to be honest - I don't notice it at all. But safe to say; my forehead is so much clearer (it use to be like freckled), it keeps my skin soft and it actually sinks into my skin. I do recommend it if you are self-conscious about acne scars.

Great product. Works wonders for my acne prone skin, and really soothes the eczema on my arms and legs. Best of all, it's all natural.

I have previously used the ordinary rosehip oil without the antioxidants with no problems, but this oil gave me horrible cystic breakouts. I have normal skin not prone to breakouts, so there is no doubt the oil is responsible. Too bad, because I like the consistancy of the oil and it feels nice on my skin.

I have dry skin which has never been prone to breakouts, with the odd pimple only showing up seldomly. I never experienced acne before and my skin reactions to certain products were never severe, at most one or two breakouts.3 months ago I decided to try new skin care products because I am trying to prevent aging and wrinkles and bought this face oil thinking it would be beneficial for my dry skin.I WAS WRONG. THIS STUFF IS EVIL. IT GAVE ME HORRIBLE, PAINFUL CYSTS ALL OVER MY FACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!At first I thought I was just going through hormonal changes, stress, life, getting older, etc...I was shocked and horrorized to see my face covered in acne for the first time in my life, I did not know what was wrong until one day I applied this oil to my neck and woke up with three MASSIVE cysts on my neck!!!I do not know why this product gave me such an awful reaction but it is definately not worth the money, it is taking me time and effort to get rid of the scars this product left ... DEFINATELY DO NOT WORTH BUYING.
