Just four drops
I bought this after reading a bunch of articles around how rose hip oil moisturises and does a range of things from correcting pigmentation and repairing fine lines. Initially I had to get used to the smell and I didn't expect the oil to be so yellow, but after I took five seconds to get over it, I did really appreciate how good it actually is. Always apply on freshly cleansed skin. Initially I started at 6 drops, then dropped to 3 but have found 4 is a good number of drops for me to cover my whole face and not look shiny. I still apply a light moisturiser after this and do it day and night, but now when I wake up in the morning, my face still looks nice and dewy.

Having been disappointed by another popular and big name brand of rosehip oil on the market, I was somewhat reluctant to go down the rosehip oil route again, but succumbed to giving it another go and am so glad that I bought this A'kin branded option. It was on sale at Priceline at the time, so that was an added bonus. It has quite an earthy, woody scent, but I actually like that and prefer it so much more than the fish oil scent I have had to endure with that other popular brand of rosehip oil.
I have combination skin that has been breaking out quite a bit lately, whilst also being dry and flakey in other areas. This product was just what my skin needed. It hydrates without leaving my skin greasy or oily and leaves it looking so radiant and healthy. I think it has also helped with healing my acne blemishes and scarring.
I only use it at night after cleansing and prior to my moisturiser. Highly recommended for those with dry, sensitive and combination skin types.

Moisturised but broke me out!
I really really wished this Rosehip Oil worked for my skin. I definitely saw a more even tone, plumper, hydrated skin in the morning after a few uses but then I also had big break outs around my cheek, chin areas which were painful! I hardly get break outs - only a few small bumps (1 or 2) at the time of the month but this product reacted with my skin badly. I read that my skin was 'purging' but I just couldnt wait it out so stopped immediately. Gave it to my boyfriend who had no issues and he loves it! RESPONSE FROM A'KIN: Rosehip oil is a highly moisturising skin care product due to its high
content in essential fatty acids and vitamins. While it suits most skins,
it can occasionally be too rich for younger or combination skins when
applied on the face. If you find that this is the case for you, you can try
and use a few drops on the neck, decolletage or the back of the hands which
are often dehydrated and will also greatly benefit from the oil without the
risk of a break out. A few drops on the hair tips makes also for a
wonderful serum. A happy boyfriend is of course another great use for the

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.
