Review: Zoe Foster swore by rose hip oil and advocated it in her book, Amazing Face (read my review here). I've been meaning to get my hands on a bottle ever since I read her recommendation. I wasn't until a couple of months ago when my face got attacked by bouts of acne that I got desperate. I contacted the PR for Sukin and they were very kind in providing me a bottle to trial.

I had high hopes for this product. My imagination ran a little wild. I wanted to believe that it was the magic bullet that my skin had been waiting for. I wanted the product to clear up my acne and fade my scars and essentially give me flawless skin. Big mistake, Ty! When you have higher expectations, you just crash down with disappointment harder. I am by no means implying that I am disappointed with this product. No, I am trying to remind you and myself that one must be realistic when trying out new products.

I trialed this product for a month. I gently pressed and massaged it onto my skin day and night, after cleansing but before moisturising. Three drops was sufficient to cover my entire face. I apply any residue on my hands onto my neck. The biggest difference I noticed was oil control. I had a slightly oilier T-zone. Now, my whole face is even; it helped keep my face moisturised but not oily. I highly recommend this to people who have oily T-zone or skin in general. Unfortunately, the benefits stopped there for me. I have read reviews whereby this product faded acne scars and did many other amazing things. But hey, no one product will work for everyone.

I really like that this product came in a glass bottle. I dislike oil products in plastic bottles, particularly cheap plastic. Somehow, oil just seeps and oozes out of cheap plastic bottles. I also like that it came with a glass dropper, minimising contamination of the product. My favourite bit is that Sukin is Australian made and owned.

I've stopped using this product for a couple of weeks now to see if it makes any changes to my skin. So far my oil control is holding up. To me it means that its effects are long-lasting, which is great! This means that I'll use it whenever I need to. I'm guessing I'll start using it again as the weather warms and my T-zone gets oily again. I am not in love with this product but I do like it. I believe that you've got nothing to lose by giving it a try because it has done wonders for a lot of people.

Have you tried rose hip oil? What do you think of this product? Would you ever give it a try?


  1. I initially started off with a bottle of Akin rosehip oil and I absolutely loved it. Later on i moved onto sukin - a part from the odd smell and that I may have purchased a dud bottle because the lid doesn't screw on properly, it does a great job when it comes to moisturising my skin! However, I haven't seen any changes in reducing scars.

    1. I'm sorry to hear that you got a dud bottle! Yes, I agree with you. It's good at moisturising for me too.

  2. I'm definitely interested in trying this! I've read about it before and I always keep it in the back of my mind when I'm beauty shopping, but now I think I will seek it out just to see how it works for me.

  3. I love this Rosehip oil. I mix it with Aloe vera gel and use as an organic face mask sometimes you can see it here (http://www.love-luc.com/2013/01/diy-natural-at-home-aloe-vera-rosehip.html). Rosehip is such a gem for sunburn too

    1. Thanks for sharing Luc! I must try it out! :)

  4. My friend, Sherman, told me to use this for my skin. I am having doubts with rosehip oil or any kinds of oil since I had a bad experience with it. But he said it had lots of positive reviews, so I might give it a try.
