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 to Use

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

Super healing for your skin!

I have researched so many facial products the past year because I'm hitting a certain age and my skin is starting to betray me! As odd as it seems to use oil on combination or problem skin -- trust me -- it works!! It helps the dry parts and heals the problem parts! My skin feels great!

Very pleased.

The rose hips oil wasn't pleasing to the smell but was pleasing to the touch. I have combination skin, being oily in the t-zone. This product left my face feeling nourished and balanced without feeling oily. I think this would be a good fit for all skin types. Will have to see how it works long term, to help with acne scarring.

Holy grail! love!

I cannot say enough good things about this. I have combination skin and was skeptical about putting an oil on my face.. and I has spending more than $15 on any product but Im so happy I bought this. with winter I started to get more dry patches than usual, I tried various moisturizers and nothing was working. My skin can be easily irritated especially around my eyes. This is a miracle worker for moisture. I even put it around my eyes since I haven't yet found a non-irritating eye cream. I didn't find it thick and it is oil so it does take longer to soak in but it actually does very nicely, especially if I use it at night. My skin is less oily looking or no more than what it would look like when I used moisturizers for oily skin. I did notice the smell the first 2 times I used it but it doesn't stick around and now i don't notice it at all. I actually prefer it because I hate putting products with fragrance on my face- worried about irritation and that it could be covering up less than good ingredients in the product. This is cool pressed and actually all natural, finally something that works without the chemicals!
I have mild rosacea, ive been using this about 3 weeks, although a haven't seen a large significant difference in the redness (at least not yet), It is helping a scar/blemish I have above my eye and my skin is very soft.
When I use this I do pin my hair back while it dries so that the oil doesn't get on my hair.

smell is awful!

I ordered the Shea Terra Organics Rose Water and this Shea Terra Organics Lesotho Rose Hips Oil. The Rose Water is amazing and everything I wanted. When I tried the Rose Oil I was shocked at the smell. Awful! I am not sure of the products results as I will never apply this to my face because of the smell. Sadly, I will be returning this product.

soft glowing skin as dewy as arose petal and smells as good as a rose too. Put on pressure points to have a natural perfume as well as a face product that you'll love!
