To know me is to know I swear by Rosehip Oil, it is something I truly do feel nervous should I not have a bottle to hand and the product I will convince you, that you need. Skin care threats aside, Rosehip Oil is wonderful: it moisturises, it nourishes, it protects and perhaps most importantly it encourages the skin to re-generate.
Up until now I haven't truly been all that loyal to one brand - I do have a special place in my heart for Trilogy Rosehip Oil but always felt that as good as it is, it could do better. Enter Pai Rosehip Bioregenerate Oil, the oil that all but glows and produces the sound of angels singing when you crack it open - yes it is that good.
Before I tell you why I think your next purchase should be Pai Rosehip Bioregenerate Oil, let me explain why Rosehip Oil in general is so fabulous. As you have most likely noticed Rosehips are highly acclaimed within the beauty world, and as such relied upon in skin care products due to their naturally high levels of vitamin A, C and E; they are also rich in fatty acids (omega 3, 6 and 9), along with lycopene (an antioxidant) - which can protect the skin from premature ageing. I know what you are thinking, sign me up please. Further adding to Rosehips' skin care credentials is that it is one of the few products that penetrates on a cellular level, so in theory 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 - restorative vitamin C and lycopene to the rescue. 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 - hello plumper and smoother skin. Forget a genie in a bottle, this is the only miracle worker you need...I would still make three wishes if a genie appeared - just saying.
It takes a lot for me to write about yet another version of Rosehip Oil but Pai is worthy of all the praise within the beauty community and then some more. As to be expected this is a dry oil, meaning it is quickly absorbed by the skin, non-greasy and can be used under other beauty products. I personally use this as pre-bedtime treatment, I apply a few drops before layering on my night cream of choice. My theory is that as the skin naturally regenerates at night, combining the power of the body with a great oil can only be beneficial. My musings aren't completely unfounded as over the last few months, I have noticed that my old acne scarring has reduced vastly and other skin oil loving friends have reported similar benefits. It also works wonders on fine lines and stretch marks should that be a skin concern.
As you may have noticed, Pai Rosehip Bioregenerate Oil is a richly golden, almost orange toned oil which does temporarily tint the complexion. Worry not, after a few moments and a little skin massaging such tint completely disappears. For those curious in regards to the hue of Pai Rosehip Oil, rest assure that it is entirely natural and due to a unique blend of: Rosehip seed oil with Rosehip fruit oil, which contains five times the carotenoids and twice the regenerative sterols of a typical Rosehip skin oil. This is turn offers a higher concentration of Vitamin A and more anti-ageing benefits. Can I get a hallelujah?
Anti-ageing, skin-brightening, scar reducing, nourishing and generally a joy to use - I'm sure I don't have to further tempt you into trying Rosehip Oil for yourself. If you do decide to purchase a bottle of this wonder oil, do yourself a favour, skip the others and take home a bottle of Pai Rosehip Bioregenerate Oil - it truly is the best.
