The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil ($9.80) is a simple, straight to the point, no bells or whistles rose seed hip facial oil. No fillers, no fragrance, nothing but simple cold-pressed rosa canina seed oil aka rose hip oil.
That’s the beauty and possibly the genius behind the Ordinary. What you see is what you get which makes for good, clean benefits for your skin. There are a lot of items I’m not particularly a fan of from the Ordinary but this 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil isn’t one. This is a rave.
The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil is presented in a dark glass bottle with dropper which is 1 oz in size. I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate the fact this is a mere 1 oz. I wish everyone would stop launching 3 oz or larger sizes of facial oil because I CAN’T GET THROUGH THEM! It’s just too much! A 1 oz bottle is a perfectly adequate size for a facial oil since a little goes a long way.
The Ordinary’s is $9.80 which is about three or so dollars more than rose hip oil you can get at vitamin or natural stores which tend to charge about $6 and some change for the same size but it’s questionable whether their formula is cold-pressed or not so do yourself a favorite, indulge in the Ordinary’s version for a few more bucks and get a cold-pressed formula. Why, what’s the difference you might ask? Cold-pressed oil is a good thing. Cold-pressing involves crushing the seeds or nuts and forcing the oil out which in tern allows it to keep a great quantity of its antioxidants. And that translates as good things things for our skin!
This is a thicker oil with an earthy slightly nutty fragrance which is completely natural. It absorbs easily but I reserve it for nightly use because it is very rich and super hydrating which makes it difficult to use in the day under makeup. Rose seed oil is rich in all sorts of antioxidants and vitamins as well as fatty acids which are will brighten and hydrate skin. I typically use this as the last step in my nightly routine as a sealant and love the way it keeps my skin very smooth, soft, and flake-free. I truly believe given time it’ll contribute to more youthful looking skin in the future and highly recommend adding it to your own routine if you have drier skin or you’re looking to preserve your skin and keep it looking youth and healthy.
All in all, The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil is an inexpensive, no bells or whistles facial oil with excellent skincare benefits and absolutely no fillers.
