Birchbox Breakdown

Rubiginosa sounds like a word we’d hear at a spelling bee, but it’s one we’re happy to add to our beauty vocabularies. The oil from these South African rose hips has healing properties that gently revive mature or damaged skin. The Huffington Post has even called it “the next coconut oil.” The name may be a tongue-twister, but that won’t stop us from adding this time-tested natural healer to our skincare arsenal.

How it Works

Oil extracted from rosa rubiginosa regenerates tissue and reduces scarring and wrinkles, and essential fatty acids contribute to cell and tissue regeneration. Rose hip oil has also been shown to reduce unwanted pigmentation and diminish lines and wrinkles. And it’s beneficial to all skin types—even acne-prone and oily.

How to Use

Apply oil to face and neck (note: a little oil goes a long way).

LOVE THIS!
Purchased

I purchased this along with the black soap and use them both every night. This oil is wonderful and makes my 44 year old skin feel great and does not make me break out in any way. I love scrubbing my face with the black soap and then following up with this oil. It doesn't smell great (a little like the giraffe exhibit at the zoo) but the rewards of using this in my very dry desert climate are too high to ignore. GREAT OIL for face and neck!

Very soothing
Purchased

I purchased this rose hip oil because I'd read that it was soothing for Rosacea. So far, the product seems to be offering moisture without aggravating my skin. It is not something that I wear under make-up since it an oil that takes a while to absorb. I have been using it for extra moisture at night. It also has a very soothing organic rose scent.
