How to use: Massage a few drops onto freshly cleaned, still-moist face. Use fingertips to rub in upward circles to stimulate circulation and enhance absorption.
As a booster: Mix 2 to 4 drops with a few pumps of your serum or your moisturizer and massage onto clean skin. May also add 2 to 4 drops to your face masks, or use Rosa alone as an oil mask (apply onto freshly cleansed, towel-dried skin, leave on for 30 minutes, and wipe off or wash off).
NOTE: Rosa is bold orange and can stain until it is absorbed, so use it sparingly and be careful around your furniture, bedding, and clothing.
Do I need an additional face moisturizer? Rosa Whole Fruit Rosehip oil can be used on its own if your skin is sensitive or you have oily skin. It can also be used as nutrient booster by adding a few drops to your serums or a richer face cream if more hydration is needed.
What is the difference between a face oil and a face serum? Official answer from Earthwise Beauty. "The word "serum" is usually used to describe a wide range of products that have a higher ratio of active ingredients, and are usually not complete—meaning they are heavier on the water phase or the oil phase, but not both. We generally suggest using a water- or aloe-based serum, such as Nap in the Meadow, as your first hydrating step, and then following up with more emollient products as needed. If you prefer to use fewer products, though, you can also skip the serum and use a complete moisturizer as the first step of your routine."
Is Rosehip Oil good for my acne-prone skin? Official answer from Earthwise Beauty. Yes. Many skincare users find their acne tendencies diminish considerably with consistent use of whole-fruit rosehip oil. We attribute this to the high content of beta-carotene that the body converts to vitamin A. We also recommend using Rosa on scars from recent acne breakouts, and even on older scars, to help regenerate healthy skin tissue.
Is Rosehip oil good for rosacea? Official answer from Earthwise Beauty. Rosacea, psoriasis, and eczema: These stubborn skin conditions often improve with rosehip oil—especially when it is made from the whole fruit—with skin becoming less likely to flare up and less prone to redness. These conditions do not improve nearly as much with the use of rosehip oil made from seeds only.
Why is your rosehip oil so orange? Will it make my skin orange? If your rosehip oil is not a vibrant orange, it means it has been stripped of many of its skin restoring nutrients. Earthwise Beauty's rosehip oil is made from the whole-fruit (seeds, fruit pulp and fruit skin), cold-pressed, unrefined, and only lightly filtered keeping fullest range of nutrients intact. Most brands use only the rosehip seeds to extend shelf life and make them non-staining but lose some of this incredible oils potency. When you put Rosa Whole Fruit Rosehip Oil on your face for the first time, don’t panic. The orangey hue only lasts for a few seconds as the rosehip oil absorbs leaving you with supple radiant skin.
