Review: Valentia Organic Rosehip Oil


*Disclosure* I received this product complimentary courtesy of Tomoson. All opinions are 100% honest and my own, like always!

Hey guys! Today I'm going to be reviewing Valentia's Organic Rosehip Oil. I think I've said before, but I've been on an oil kick lately with my skin. Plus, it's fun trying out new things!

Here is what the product helps with, taken from Amazon:

-REDUCES FINE LINES & WRINKLES - powerful Vitamin C and Lycopene antioxidants promote healthy cell development, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and protecting the skin from free radicals which lead to premature aging.
-REDUCES SCARS & BURNS - the presence of high levels of essential fatty acids, which cannot be naturally reproduced by our bodies, work to heal and speed up cell regeneration to reduce the appearance of scars and burns. Naturally occurring vitamin A in Rosehip Oil helps heal and improve scar tissue left behind by acne, dermatitis and psoriasis scarring.
-REHYDRATES SKIN - essential fatty acids work to lock in moisture, hydrate the skin and keep it soft and supple. Get ready to improve your complexion and face the elements.
-EVENS SKIN TONE - repair skin discoloration and damage caused by environmental stresses such as UV damage from overexposure to the sun. Hyper-pigmentation and age spots are dramatically reduced with continued use.
-STRENGTHENS NAILS & HAIR - replenish dry, brittle and damaged hair with density, instant shine and smoothness. Nourish your nails and cuticles to prevent hangnails and breakage.

Ok, so this oil is actually pretty great with my skin. It leaves it feeling soft and hydrated, and I wake up with a glow from within look to my face. I only use it at night as it does leave me pretty shiny. I definitely can't use it in my hair, as it makes my hair feel really greasy, even with the tiniest amount. The only thing I really have an issue with it the scent. I've never used Rosehip Oil before, but the oil in my bottle smells so strange, like spoiled milk or something. I thought maybe it would have a rose scent, but boy was I wrong. I also could've been sent a bad batch, I don't know. I haven't used this oil often because of the scent, but I do like what it does for my skin when I do. At $13.99 for a bottle on Amazon, it's a great price, but buy at your own risk. 

Have you used Rosehip Oil before?

    I love Rosehip Seed Oil! My skin has been so soft since I've been using it. Hope it really does help reduce those fine lines. Could use a little help. ;-) Stopping by from Wake Up Wednesday.

  2. Thank you for stopping by! I think the oil will help over time with the fine lines. Nothing changes overnight!
