Kosmea Skin Clinic Organic Rose Hip Oil


Kosmea Skin Clinic Organic Rose Hip Oil is the first pure plant oil I tried, back in 2009, and this product singlehandedly started my passion for organic skin care. I remember the first time I used it- the idea of applying an oil to my face was completely alien to me, but when I saw the results I was hooked. In fact, I remember posting about Kosmea’s Rose Hip Oil when my blog was only 2 weeks old (awwww..) here.

Rose Hip Oil, when extracted properly, is a powerhouse of antioxidants, with  high levels of Vitamin A, Lycopene, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Beta Carotene. This makes it great for fighting oxidative damage, healing acne scarring, and bumping up collagen production.

I like to use it straight after a shower, when my skin is maximally receptive to treatment. After massaging about 4-5 drops into my skin, the oil absorbs very quickly and I’m left with glowy supple skin. The best bit is waking up the next morning to beautifully plumped skin. I use it about 3-4x a week.

The Rose Hip Oil itself is a deep orange colour, and has a wheat-ish herbaceous smell. I know some do find the smell a little too strong for their liking but I really don’t mind it at all, particularly since it’s a good sign that the oil has been minimally processed (if you buy a Rose Hip Oil that has no smell, it has been deodorised and probably gone through harsh extraction processes which destroy the nutrients in the oil).

Because the antioxidants and nutrients in the Rose Hip Oil does tend to react with sunlight and air over time, I prefer to buy the smaller 20mL bottle and replenish my supply more often to ensure freshness. The 20mL bottle lasts me about 6 months.


Have you used this liquid gold?
