An essential part of my skincare routine
The oil has a woody smell to it that I don't mind. It feels slightly greasy on application, but absorbs quickly into the skin. After applying this oil, my skin feels soft, supple, and hydrated, and there is a subtle glow. I've also found that with regular use, my face has become dry and less prone to redness.

Great Rosehip Oil
I have combination skin (oily T-zone but dry around mouth/chin) and found this to be a great rosehip. It is an oil so did leave an oily feel but not as much as you would expect. A very small amount goes a long way. The scent is like all rosehip oils so no surprises there. The bottle comes with a dripper so get better control of the amount dispensed. It is certified organic and has a lot of nutrients in it.

Smells amazing in its own little way. Hydrates skin almost immediately without being too oily.

A beautiful oil for the face, you will see results! Don't sway away just because your skin may be classed as "oily". This works wonders! I love this over Sukin's as it's clearly more thin, light and just sinks in super easily. Don't apply any sort of creams over this for a while, as it will cause separation and balling of the product. Once it sinks in, you're all good and ready for layering.

I love rosehip oil but..
I am a strong advocate for rosehip oil and I've been using it religiously every day for about a year now. It helped clear up my skin and kept it nice and supple each morning when I woke up (my skin is usually very dehydrated). I actually began using Trilogy's rosehip oil before trying this one.
I suppose rosehip oil is rosehip oil but I found this one to have a strong scent to it. It isn't a bad smell, I just felt uncomfortable with putting it on my face. The colour of the oil was also a little more vibrant as well compared to the Trilogy's oil. I'm not too certain which one is more organic, but I found that I had better results with Trilogy than A'kin, which is unfortunate because it's cheaper than the Trilogy oil.
I do not have very big qualms with using this product, but I suppose it just doesn't compare to my original rosehip oil.

This feels similar to the People Of Plants Face Oil. When my skin is feeling dry I like to use a drop of this after cleansing and toning.

I just love my rosehip oil. I bought this after reading articles and reviews. A'kin Rosehip oil is truely lovely as I have now been using it for about 2 months and already I feel different. Essentially I was using for my dry/combination skin and acne scars, and I must say it has targeted those areas and nourished my skin. I use about once a day, just before bed. It is not greasy or oily like I thought it might be, and is light on my skin, letting it still breathe. It is a must for one's beauty bag.

Perfect after a mask!
I got a sample of this, wanting to try it before I spend money. And I must say, I love it. It feels luxurious after a mask. But I can see how it would be good for daily use as well. I would like to try more of it

Must-have beauty oil
I've recently discovered rosehip oil and I don't know how I got by so long without it. It's extremely versatile, gentle and effective. I love it as a lip moisturiser - just dab a few drops onto your lips for super soft lips. It's even gentle enough to use under my eyes.
I've used Thursday Plantation's rosehip oil and the only difference is the bottle - A'kin has a handy dropper, Thursday Plantation doesn't so it's just a matter of which you prefer. I kind of like the dropper, but if the other is on special, I'd buy that one because there's no difference between the actual oils themselves.

I'm glad my skin finally gets to experience the wonders of rose hip oil, as first I tried the sukin one but my skin didn't work well with it. But this is a thinner but nice consistency, and it moisturises my face so well, it doesn't take at all long for my face to absorb this. After a while of regular use I have noticed that my skin had become more soft and hydrated, maybe even a slight glow but I think that may be because of the colour of the oil. Overall quite pleased with this
