I have to tell you, I'd never heard of Rosehip oil. I really didn't know how to use it, or what it was even for. But after a little research (yeah, I just googled it), I decided that I would like to give it a try.
Rosehip oil is used for a lot of different skin conditions. It can also be used as a hair treatment or nail treatment. But I still really didn't know 'what' to do with it. I mean it was just oil in a bottle.
The directions were fairly simple, "Put 2-4 drops of undiluted oil on damp skin." It can also be mixed with moisturizer. The directions also said to keep it refrigerated.
So here goes - my first experience with Dr. Song Rosehip Oil
I timidly opened the bottle. I don't know why I expected it to smell, but for some reason I expected it to smell like a smelly oil or really strong. I'm very sensitive to smells. And if it smells strong or bad (to me), I just won't use it.
And..... it didn't smell strong at all. I'm serious. This oily liquid had a really light scent but nothing overpowering, and I found that I could mix it with other moisturizers and it wasn't overpowering.
My first test with the Dr. Song Rosehip Oil, was to put it directly on my skin. And I have to say that it absorbed really quick. I thought my skin would feel oily or greasy but it didn't. I did have to use more than 2-4 drops for my entire leg. After a day with no adverse reactions (I'm really prone to get rashes), I decided to try it on my face.
It absorbed quickly and it was a great moisturizer. I don't think I would use it daily on my face (as I would my legs), but I could definitely see myself using this when my face was particularly dry or needed some extra moisture.
And, I trusted Dr. Song Rosehip Oil enough to try it on Lil Man. He has a tendency to have dry skin, and I applied the rosehip oil after his bath. He also had a little scrape on his leg, and I applied it to that also. Lil Man is also sensitive to smells. He will tell you right quick if he thinks it stinks. But he didn't complain about the smell. Now remember that the oil needs to be stored in the refrigerator, so I did warm it up in my hands before I applied it to his skin. I was pleased with both the results on the dry skin and the scrape on his leg.
I have also tried it in my hair. It works as a great deep conditioner. And I imagine if you used a very small amount of the product it could be used as a daily conditioner.
Overall, my experience with Dr. Song Rosehip Oil has been a great one. And I will continue to use Dr. Song Rosehip Oil. If you are familiar with Rosehip oil, I believe that this is a great quality oil. If you've never tried Rosehip Oil, I encourage you to give it a try. I'm now a new fan of Dr. Song Rosehip Oil.
