I started using Rose Hip Oil a few years ago to tackle some pesky scars, and it really helped. It’s deeply moisturising, with all kinds of anti-aging benefits you can get a full run-down on here.
Then after reading that Helena Christensen would “wake up, slather my face in Rosehip Oil, and let it sink in while I check my emails,” I figured I’d been short-changing myself and started using it as part of my daily face-care regime.
Thanks to Helena, I now spend part of most mornings tap-tap-tapping away on the laptop imagining myself as an ex-supermodel with perfect skin, and being blissfully deluded.

Now I could just be kidding myself, but I really think that my face looks younger and feels softer since I’ve started using it. Sometimes, people even comment that I’ve got “lovely skin.” Pity there’s not a miracle product that gets rid of the bags under my eyes, though. For them I’ve taken a leaf out of Gaga’s book and simply hide my peepers behind sunglasses.
I’ve tried a bunch of different Rose Hip Oil brands, and they’ve all provided the same results, so it’s not worth getting hung up about the name on the label. And at about $25-$30 per bottle it’s relatively cheap, considering it lasts a couple of months even if you apply morning and night.
