Rosehip Oil for Acne Skin

I have a new facial oil! I’ve gone through argan oil, jojoba oil, and Acure Brightening Glowing Serum.

Argan oil: I have mix feelings about this oil, but I decided to keep using it. I haven’t broken out from it (yet, lol). It absorbs into my skin well and leaves my skin feeling moisturized. I haven’t noticed anything miraculous about it. Maybe I’ll see a huge change in my skin if I continue to use it until the end of the year. That’s if it doesn’t break me out.

Jojoba oil: Jojoba oil is a very popular oil for acne-prone skin. It’s touted as the best of the best for acne-prone skin. Supposedly it doesn’t clog pores. It mimics the skin’s natural oils. Even though it’s called an ‘oil’, it’s actually a wax ester. I think that is the sole reason why I cannot use jojoba oil without ending up with clogged pores. My skin doesn’t like the waxy texture. It sits on top of my skin and doesn’t absorb into my skin at all. My face ends up feeling greasy. When that happens, acne galore!

Acure Brightening Glowing Serum: I’ve used this serum before, and it did cause some breakouts. I thought I would try it again, but I changed my mind. haha. It is what it is. It’s a mix of oils including safflower seed oil, sesame seed oil, pumpkin seed oil, borage seed oil, argan oil, etc. Go here for more information.

On to rosehip oil…

So I wanted an oil that is more suitable for oily, acne-prone skin. I stumbled upon rosehip oil. I’ve used this oil in other skin care products. I’ve never used it alone. There’s a ton of positive reviews on rosehip oil for acne-prone skin. It’s supposed to help with acne and acne scarring. Knowing that, that sounds like it’ll be a perfect fit for me. I really do hope so. The rosehip oil I purchased is called Aria Starr Rosehip Seed Oil. I didn’t seek out this brand. I just wanted a good pure, premium oil that’s of good quality. I’ve never used this brand before or even ever heard of it. I just chose it, and that was it! More about the oil…

It is vegan. The only ingredient is 100% Pure Cold-Pressed Rosehip Oil. πŸ™‚ It comes in a 4 fl oz glass bottle. It came with a dropper to dispense the oil. The instructions says to use 2-3 drops on fingertips and massage into desired area until fully absorbed. Do not rinse. I used about 4-5 drops on my face, neck, and chest. I pat it into my skin. No tugging of any kind. This oil absorbed pretty well. It didn’t leave my skin feeling greasy or anything like that. I really liked that. So far, I’ve used it 4 times. I will be using it at night when I take a break from my acne treatment(s) and every morning. It hasn’t made my skin greasy-looking in the morning whatsoever. No breakouts as of yet. I hope it stays that way. It made my skin feel supple and hydrated. Keep in mind that I am using another facial oil too. That could be the oil that’s making my face feel all nice and soft rather than the rosehip oil. It could be a combination of both! All I know is that my skin looks and feels really good!! I’ll go into more detail about this other oil tomorrow. πŸ™‚

I really hope it works due to the benefits it’s supposed to have on acnegenic skin — balances oil production and fades acne scars but also helps with wrinkles and aging skin! Hmmm. Let’s see how this goes! I’ll make an update when I notice changes in my skin. If it breaks me out not either! Stay tuned! 😊😊😊

I’m verging on 2 months of using jojoba oil as a facial moisturizer. I only use jojoba oil as a facial moisturizer. I don’t use it as a leave-in hair treatment or body oil. From my own experience, for me, it works best as facial moisturizer. I use it in the morning and at night after I cleanse my skin. I dispense a few drops of oil into the palm of my hand and gently apply it to my facial skin. I pat it in and let it soak into my skin. Since I’ve been doing this every day and night, my skin hasn’t been dry at all. I haven’t had to deal with cracked and shedding skin, lol. I haven’t had any break-outs from it either. No acne. No skin irritations. No redness. Nothing. It’s been working fabulously! Jojoba oil isn’t just good for the facial skin. I’ve too noticed that my eye area has been extremely moisturized. It makes a natural and lovely eye cream. It doesn’t get rid of dark under eye circles, but it makes a good moisturizer for the skin around the eyes. Along with that, my eyelashes appear healthier and longer. I’m not even kidding. My eyelashes appear fuller and thicker. 😍 Overall, my skin has been looking soooo good and pretty that I’ve cut down on makeup products. Who needs makeup when your skin naturally glows? Amazing! I love, love, love the results! I couldn’t be any happier! But, that’s my experience with my previous jojoba oil. Now, let’s see if Now Solutions Organic Jojoba Oil works just the same!

Have you used Now Solutions Organic Jojoba Oil orΒ Trader Joe’s SPA 100% Pure Jojoba Oil? Any other brands of jojoba oil? Share your thoughts!
