The rich, amber colored Organic oil from the ripened fruit of the famed Rosehip contains highly nutritious ingredients. It is one of the predominant oils used for treating wrinkles and premature aging, cell regeneration, collagen and elastin level support. Rosehip Seed Oil has carried much respect amongst professionals and scientists as being a great natural agent in the fight against dry, weathered, and dehydrated skin. It may also be used for certain skin problems (i.e. psoriasis and eczema), reduce stretch marks and age spots, and address brittle nails and dry or damaged hair.
Made a believer out of me!

I absolutely adore Pink Horizons Organic Coldpressed RoseHip Seed Oil! I've been using it for just over two months now, and I am really starting to see some great results. I already ordered my next bottle today! I originally bought it because I was looking for a gentle but effective serum for my eye area, since I was starting to see fine lines and crows feet. Then when I started using the RoseHip Seed Oil, I discovered I could use it anywhere I wanted, so I did: under my eyes, and on my face, neck, chest, hands, and hair! I have very sensitive skin, and sensitive eyes (and I wear contact lenses), and I've been using this oil pretty much every day twice a day, and have not had any problems whatsoever. And, my skin stays moisturized and has a healthy glow, my crows feet are fading, and most remarkably, I have noticed that the deep creases that had begun to appear on my chest and around the base of my neck are starting to disappear! It's also starting to fade a scar on my hand from a recent deep scratch. And, you only need to use a little tiny bit, because it goes a long way, but even when I get overenthusiastic and put on way more oil than I need, it still hasn't caused any problems — if I put on too much oil, it only means that it will take a little bit longer to absorb.
As for the oil itself (which I keep in the fridge, of course): it is a beautiful amber/orange color, spreads easily and absorbs quickly, and has a wonderful enchanting fragrance that I describe as "Wild Chocolate." It smells warm and chocolatey, with a hint of something wild, natural and earthy — a truly gorgeous scent to put on your face morning and night! I breathe in deeply as I put it on my face, and it is so relaxing. Then, the scent disappears quickly after application, so if you might be worrying it would be too strong, don't worry, it goes away.
As for my skin type: I'm in my late 40s, so I guess I'd have to say I have "maturing" skin, and my skin is very sensitive, and it's clear most of the time, and I'd call it "normal," as I just produce a little bit of oil on my forehead and nose, and that's it. A word of caution: from what I've read in my research about RoseHip Seed Oil, it is not appropriate for those with acne prone and very oily skin — it could make the acne worse. But for everyone else, I think it's a great moisturizer and "age eraser."
I also must add that the coldpressed oil is far superior to the refined oil, as the coldpressed retains more of the nutrients that you buy it for in the first place; some companies try to convince you that the refined is just as good if not better, but that's because it benefits the companies, because the refined has a longer shelf life and costs more. Coldpressed organic oil is a win-win situation, because it's better for you and less expensive — how often does that happen?! :-)
I further must add that the Pink Horizons RoseHip Seed Oil is the best by far among the various rosehip seed oils I've tried in the past couple months since I discovered rosehip seed oil. Another one I tried claimed to be coldpressed, but it was yellow (a mark of refined oil), took a long time to absorb, and smelled so strongly the smell stayed with me all day, and it was more expensive than the Pink Horizons. Another one I tried was really cheap, but it smelled like sesame oil, and it started to make me break out. But the Pink Horizons oil is perfect: smells great, feels great, works great, and I love the glass container with the handy dropper, too. And their customer service and shipping have been wonderful so far, and I love the free samples!
Overall, Pink Horizons Organic Coldpressed Rosehip Seed Oil: highly recommended!
