Rose hip this...rose hip that...i want to marry rose hip...rose hip...rose hip...rose hip! it seems to be the hottest thing on everyones lips. But which one takes the gold medal home for being the best? Being a proud user of rose hip for a solid year now -pops collar- i thought I would share with you the three brands that managed to land a spot on ma face...or in the bottom of my drawer
Lets start with the basics...
What the hec is rose hip oil?
It is a cold pressed oil that is taken from the fruit of the rose bush.
What does it do?
It supports the skins collagen and elastin. Making your skin smoother and more hydrated. Rose hip oil is perfect for acne scars (my 26 year old sister is living proof of this), ageing skin, eczma, sun damaged skin or dry skin.
How do I apply it?
Rose hip oil can be applied whenever you desire...wherever you desire (yes even while you are on the toilet if that is what pleases you). However I personally find that due to the oily appearance it initially gives your skin that it is better to be applied before going to bed..and when you wake up you wake up like a total babe with glowin' skin
Lelan Vital Organics Kosmea Trilogy
3rd place: Kosmea Rose Hip Oil
From the discoloured lid you can probably tell that I wasn't really a fan of this brand because it smelt kinda weird? Every night when i applied it, it felt as though I was applying a smelly fish onto my face (don't judge my odd sense of smell!) I also found that the texture was greasy rather than oily? hence leaving me feeling like a walking deep fried beer battered fish
2nd place: Lelan Vital Rose Hip Oil
This one ALMOST got the gold medal. It applies really well and left my skin feel super duper hydrated/moist upon waking up the next day. I personally found this to have the strongest scent out of all of them - but in a good rose smelling kinda way? This one is my mums favourite..and being like every other European mother she went out and literally bought a bajillion of them (however that may or may not be linked to the fact that this brand is the cheapest of them all...and we all know that mama loves a good special)
ANNND THE WINNER ISSSS
1st place: Trilogy Rose Hip Oil
Bet you wouldn't have guessed ha? :P This liquid goodness has the perfect texture for my skin. It applies oily not greasy and has a pleasant smell which is barely even there. I would definitely recommend getting your hiney to the supermarket to purchase this product...NOW!
