For The Love of Rosehip


Roses are red, violets are blue, and my love for Rosehip oils is certainly true. I’ve been using Rosehip oils for over 6 years now and it is my go-to when I my skin is in need of some TLC. Nourishing, repairing, and replenishing? I’M IN.

Whilst I’ve got a deep affection for Trilogy’s Antioxidant+ Rosehip Oil, I’m not adverse to branch out and try different brands. Inika is an Australian brand that’s certified organic and is possibly more known for their natural make up range —I can vouch for their Mineral Powder Foundation.

I’ve tried their Enriched and Pure Rosehip Oils, which are both 95% certified organic. They may look tiny, but they’re 15ml each and a little goes a long way. Also, because it comes in a plastic container (compared to heavy glass bottles), it’s very travel friendly. I had both of these with me when I flew to China five months ago and my skin looked great throughout my trip. I applied these throughout my long-haul flight to replenish my skin, as it was being attacked by gross cabin air, and used these in the evenings to repair my skin from (over) exposure to sun.

Enriched is slightly heavier, as it’s Rosehip Oil blended with Kakadu Plum, Quandong, Riberry and Crown of Gold —botanicals with anti-ageing properties. It’d be perfect for those with drier skin and/or more mature skin, but my combination skin gulped this down just as eagerly whilst I was flying 13hrs+. Pure is a more simplistic version, containing 100% pure organic Rosehip Oil.

Both oils I found great to aid & reduce my hyper pigmentation spots over time, whilst giving my skin a hydration boost. I’ll be sticking with Pure for now, since it’s still warm out and I refuse to admit summer’s ending. Though rest assured: Enriched is likely to make a comeback when it the leaves start turning brown & start falling down.
