A'Kin Certified Organic Rosehip Oil review
Rosehip Oil is one of the most beautiful and beneficial oils that you can add to your skincare routine and it's certainly been coming in handy during this recent cold snap!

I honestly can't remember how long I've been using Rosehip Oil for. I first heard about it as a useful ingredient to look out for in skincare when I was researching products that could help with acne scars. Naturally, Rosehip Oil popped up and the more I read about it, the more I knew I needed to try it. I purchased a bottle from a local health store several years ago and I've never looked back.

There are a lot of brands out there who have their own versions of this superstar oil, but the two key things to look out for are purity and organic certifications. For the best results on your skin, you want a pure Rosehip Oil that doesn't contain any additional 'nasties' such as parabens, sulfates, silicones, phthalates, mineral oil, artificial colours or fragrances. I'd also recommend looking out for a organic certification logo on the packaging, as many are marketed as 'organic', but are not verified in any way.

The one that I've been using the most often over the years is A'kin Rosehip Oil which is certified organic by COSMOS (one of the highest and strictest organic accreditations on the market). It contains just pure Rosehip Oil, with a little Rosemary Leaf extract to help 'turbo-charge' the antioxidant content, with nothing else added, so it's naturally vegan-friendly.

Why Is Rosehip Oil So Good for the Skin?
Rosehip Oil is derived from Rosehip Seeds which are naturally high in essential fatty acids, carotenes and antioxidants. These are fantastic for the skin as they help to keep it healthy and hydrated, as well as improving skin tone and texture, brightening the complexion, diminishing marks and scars, and also helping to reduce any redness and irritation. It's often touted as an 'anti-ageing' oil thanks to its Vitamin A content which helps to promote healthy cell renewal and regeneration to keep skin looking younger for longer. The purity and multi-benefits of Rosehip Oil makes it suitable for all skin types to try out, but as with all skincare products, please do a patch test first if you have sensitive skin.

5 Ways To Use Rosehip Oil
  • Hydrating Facial Oil Treatment - massage 1-3 drops into cleansed skin before applying your moisturiser, to give dry skin a hydrating boost.
  • Boost Your Moisturiser - alternatively, mix a few drops directly into your current moisturiser to supercharge your morning and/or evening skincare routine.
  • Dry Skin Saviour - massage a couple of drops into any area on the face and body that feels dry or cracked. It's brilliant for heels, elbows, knees and even on the lips!
  • Hand & Nail Treatment - rub in a few drops directly into dry hands, paying particular attention to the cuticles, knuckles and nails to give them some moisturising TLC.
  • Frizz & Flyaways Smoother - apply 1-3 drops (depending on the length and thickness of your hair) into your hands and smooth over your lengths and ends to tame any frizz and flyaways for a sleek finish.

A'kin Certified Organic Rosehip Oil* is QVC's 'Supersize Product of the Month' throughout March - pick up a massive 45ml bottle for only £25.68 (link)
