The Best Budget Rosehip Oil I Have Found

The Best Budget Rosehip Oil

I'm beyond loyal to Rosehip Oil, I use it daily and will just about thrust a bottle towards anyone who will give me five minutes of their time. To say I regard it as a must try product is an understatement. For years now I have been beyond loyal to Trilogy Organic Rosehip Oil and still rate it highly but when you apply liberal amounts of said oil it can be a pricey affair. After a quick route around I found, Poppy Austin Organic Rosehip Oil on Amazon no less and just £16.49 for a large 60ml bottle. What was more impressive is the fact that it is 100% pure and cold pressed (this method locks in more of the anti-oxidants and in laymen's terms general skin boosting goodness), is responsibly sourced, not to mention hand made. Yup put me down for a bottle I said, wafting my card manically at the screen (that's a somewhat lie, I know my card details off by heart and even if I didn't they are stored on Amazon but you get the point?).


Before I share my main reasons for using Rosehip Oil, let me tell you why Poppy Austin Organic Rosehip Oil has impressed me. First of all, this version of Rosehip Oil seems to be a little lighter - perhaps it is because it contains no additional ingredients or maybe it is down to the way it has been pressed, who knows? All I can say is that it is far less greasy and generally "oily" than others I have tried, as a matter of a fact I somewhat liken it to a dry oil as it is so quickly absorbed by the skin with no traces of residue left behind. This also happens to be the only version of Rosehip Oil I've tried thus far that truly leaves my skin softened, as it is completely natural and a single ingredient product I have been massaging it into my Ezcema, to which it has been gently and nourishing. So far, so good in that aspect. Otherwise Poppy Austin Organic Rosehip Oil is as good, if not better than any Rosehip Oil I have ever used and I will certainly be replacing this bottle once I have drained it in a few months.

The reason Rosehips are often used in skin care is due to their naturally high levels of vitamin A, C and E, they are also rich in fatty acids such as omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids, not to mention lycopene (an antioxidant) - which can protect the skin from premature ageing. Further adding to its skin care credentials is the fact that it is one of the few products that penetrates on a cellular level, meaning with continued use you can repair and restore the skin as well as shielding from future damage. The natural concentrate of vitamin A may aid the repair of scars as well as improving the general texture and tone of the complexion. Rosehip is said to be particularly effective against sun and environmental damage, this is due to restorative vitamin C and lycopene. Again if used regularly it may reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; the natural levels of vitamin A and C boost collagen turnover - promoting plumper and smoother skin.

I understand that not everyone looks for anti-ageing benefits, be it due to age or preference. I personally use Rosehip oil daily as a natural anti-inflammatory (Omega's), the natural healing qualities (vit c) are ideal for my often blemish prone skin; it soothes, calms (it can reduce redness), deeply moisturises and nourishes, all the while encouraging my skin to self repair. As a side note it is great on those pesky red marks (or any unwanted hyper-pigmentation) left behind from blemishes, not to mention it eradicates any tight or itchiness that scarring in general can cause. For this reason it is great for sunburn, itchy scalps and stretch marks - preventive or restorative.

I'm in no way a skin care expert but I do think that everyone should try and implement Rosehip Oil into their nightly routine, you'll be surprised at just how quickly you'll become hooked. As I mentioned above, if typical, heavy and dare I say greasy oils aren't for you, I can't recommend Poppy Austin Organic Rosehip Oil enough.

  8. I used the Trilogy one and liked it fine, but not enough to repurchase it. I'm definitely intrigued by this one, though. Thanks for the detailed (and convincing!) post!

  13. Thank you for this! I have been following your acne series, as an adult-acne sufferer myself, and your mention of Rosehip Oil as something helpful in your last post really struck me. I just started using a cleansing oil at night, but haven't gotten into using an oil as a nightly thing.

    At what stage in your skincare routine do you apply it? Is it used as a replacement for a nightly moisturizer?

    Thanks!

  14. I would not recommend buying such an exquisite and precious oil from Amazon. Without the manufacturers MSDS (manufacturerS safety data sheet) you do not know what you are getting. Real, authentic Rosehip oil is not cheap. Be aware that oils can be diluted with cheap ingredients and altered.

  15. This sounds amazing! Do you only use it at night? Do you use a moisturiser as well?

  17. Cold pressed oils are awesome! Natural goodness doesn't like heat ;) i somtimes thing that as i'm cooking vegtables lol! Not many people know this but Sea Buckthorn oil AND the pulp extract which is super concentrated, has even more vitamin A than rosehip oil AND it has zinc in there, they work together to heal skin :) That is one to look out for :)

  18. I'm so glad to hear you're liking it! It's always nice to find affordable products that work.
    I have a bottle of Rosehip Oil (I don't remember what brand) but I'm so scared to use essential oils as I've heard you need to be really careful using them on your skin! Do you just add a drop to your moisturizer or use a few drops on it's on?

  19. I'm so glad you posted this. I loved using the Trilogy rose hip oil, but once it finished I didn't immediately reach out to buy it. I would like to start using it again, so I'll certainly take a look at this one.

  21. I love Fuschi Organic Rosehip Oil - it's about the same price but it's quite thick. I used it for about a year both morning and evening in place of a moisturiser, and my skin was transformed! I did end up with a few blocked pores, but they're gone now :)
