I discovered the benefits of rose hips in Switzerland when I was working there in a hotel. It might seem a strange thing to say, when the rose is such a quintessentially English flower, but in Switzerland I discovered fruit and herb teas for the first time. At that point (the early 90s) they weren’t a big thing in the UK and I became a big fan of rosehip tea – it’s still one of my favourites today. Despite this early experience with the benefits of rose hips, I’ve never used products containing them other than tea bags, so I was interested to be sent a range of RosehipPLUS products to try out. RosehipPLUS is an Australian skincare brand.
The benefits of Rosehip Oil are endless; from reducing the appearance of stretchmarks to soothing sun burn, and can can be used as part of a daily routine for both men and women of all ages, even those with the most sensitive skin. Certified organic cold pressed, every product in the range contains oil from the highest quality Rosehip seeds sourced from the Southern regions of Chile. The oil is extracted from the seeds without heat, solvents or chemicals, guaranteeing the oil’s purity and quality. This range includes RosehipPLUS Rosehip Oil, RosehipPLUS Skin Boost Roll On, RosehipPLUS Day Cream, RosehipPLUS Night Cream and Daily Cream Cleanser.
My skin has got quite dry over the winter, so RosehipPLUS has been a very welcome addition to my skincare regime because it is very good for dry skin I’ve found. I’ve found the Skin Boost Roll On has been great for giving a small area a quick boost and I have used it on lips and other dry patches. The Daily Cream Cleanser is a pleasure to use and gets my skin really clean. I’m using the Day Cream each morning and the Night Cream in the evening and I’ve noticed a difference to how my skin feels: it’s less dry and softer. I like using rosehip oil as it’s a natural product and one in good supply, so I can feel good about my skin care choices.
