My review is for the Aura Cacia brand. My skin is acne prone (the nasty cysts and nodules) and is extremely oily. I wasn't sure what to expect when i bought this product--maybe a nice glow if anything. Not only does it not cause more breakouts like many have exclaimed, but its slowly but surely fading my older acne scars and my complexion is becoming more even and the glow is there :-)

One of the first oils I used on my face. It did not cause me to have any additional acne and did not irritate my skin. I did not end up like using oils for my face, but if I did end up buying one again in the future this would be the one I would pick up. Supposed to be excellent for your skin, especially aging skin. I would check this one out if you haven't. You can buy affordable rosehip seed oil at your local health food store. Don't see the need to spend hundreds on some high end version. The rosehip seed oil alone works well and is very moisturizing. If you don't like the smell mix a little bit of it with another oil. I would do it on a drop by drop (one use at a time) basis because some of them can cause each other to spoil faster. And rosehip seed oil can expire pretty quickly. The stuff I used seemed to last longer than in other's experiences, but once I mixed it with some rose oil it went bad quickly. I wouldn't do that again. I'd just mix them together on and "on-demand" basis.
Good luck with oils. They aren't bad. I just found vitamin e cream worked better for my schedule and for my hair, as it would pick up the oil and get even greasier.

I have found that this is best combined with aprin powder to make a fine paste (read it in another review).
You put a tiny tiny bit on a patch and I swear the redness is so much less by the next day. It isn't too greasy but remember a little goes a very long ways
Make sure you keep formula refrigerated.

Distinct smell very much like cod liver oil or fish oil. Good absorption remains to be seen if I will learn to tolerate the smell. I would recommend for night usage only due to distinct fishiness- perhaps I will get used to it or need a different brand. I bought Reviver rosehip oil. Amber colored oil- I prefer clear or faint color.

I bought 250ml for £6 which is a wonderful price compared to others on the market. I chose cold-pressed and organic and mixed it with 2ml of rose essential oil for a light scent.
Uses: neat on skin as a moisturiser/massage oil, a few pumps in the bath, mix with coarse salt/sugar as a body scrub, mixed with cold-pressed walnut butter for a thick body butter, blended with rose water for skin mist/ hair treatment... and even used it on my yorkshire terrier to condition his fur (i researched it before i used it on him, he has a lovely glossy coat, even if he will ruin it with mud).
The oil absorbs well, I apply it after a warm shower before bed- do allow your skin to absorb it before you clamber into bed or you'll end up with a wonderfully moisturised bed! (just wash at a high temp to get rid of the oil)
The result, my skin is a lot softer, I have a pleasant glow, I haven't noticed any fading in scars or stretchmarks on my hips yet but I know it will take time. A 250ml bottle has lasted me 1.5months with daily use as several products. All in all, it is a staple and I will be repurchasing.

Circa 2002, I first notice my dog gobble up the rose fruit that grows after the flower bloom is done. Later I do some reading and find out about rosehip jam, etc. Keep in mind that this is way before the craze for rosehip oil grew and I am not able to afford rosehip oil anyway, then. Well, thanks to my dog (bless her - she's in doggie heaven), I am a fan of RHO. Like they say, animals know best, by instinct. My pooch would have probably been an inventor if she had the craftiness of human beings.
I believe this product is doing only good, to my skin. I haven't seen the scars disappear but they have faded.
I use 2-3 drops and apply on a damp face, on trouble skin like blemishes, spots, scars. The oil is too heavy to use as a face moisturizer (I read one comment which states that the rosehip seed oil was 'slathered on' the face and it caused breakouts!). Whatever I have read so far and my opinion is that it has to be used as a serum or as a 'treatment'.
Between the Badger Baby/Calendula Balm and the rosehip seed oil, my skin has improved a lot. I even have friends remarking how my face glows and are surprised that I've never done a facial treatment at any spa or salon anytime!
It also seems to have refined the pores around the nose area, where they were large.
I am happy with the product. I have the 'Rosa Canina' origin oil and the brand I use is the 'Rosehip Plus'. My understanding is that there are other varieties of the rosehip seed which are better?

I'm not really sure how to rate this. I've used it for about a week, didn't see any results. But, after some research I realized I bought the "all natural" and not the "organic".

I started using this 6 months ago for under eye wrinkles that were starting to come in... I will say although it took awhile, I absolutely see a difference and will continue to use not only on my eyes but faced. My understanding it must be cold pressed and pure.

My 1st review is for the brand Life Flo Health's rosehip seed oil. This one is excellent. Inexpensive & preserved with a touch of tocopherol (I still keep mine in the fridge because RHO goes rancid very quickly). I have been using it on a new scar with excellent results, the scar has been shrinking & healing rapidly. I wish I would have known about this stuff when I had my 1st child!! It is a rich, reddish oil & a little bit goes a LONG way. I also like the dropper bottle that it comes in. Very convenient. I use a tiny bit on my face occasionally, but I think 2-3 drops max, massaged gently onto a damp face is sufficient, sometimes I even mix a drop or two into my nigh time moisturizer. I have had great results, but I'm just finally done with PMS breakouts, at 32 I'm finally completely done with acne breakouts in general, YMMV.
NOW brand rosehip seed oil. Stay away & save your money!!! I bought that first & what a waste. First of all, the oil was clear & kept for 2 years without going rancid, that's a big red flag that they're probably not even selling real RHO. NOW brand RHO did nothing for my skin & if people are not getting results from their RHO, I'm going to assume they bought this kind.

I wish I'd listened to the bad reviews of this product - and not the good ones - before I slathered it all over my face and got the worst break-out of cyst like spots EVER within 3 days! I feel that my lovely skin has been damaged by this nasty product. Don't listen to the nonsense about how good it is: don't buy it. It is cheap but utterly cheerless and it will leave you with bad skin to clear up using your old tried and trusted products.
