When it comes to keeping your skin soft, supple and firm there’s no better time to start than the present. In most cases, the skin you have today will probably be the best it gets (unless you have millions of dollars and great doctors.) A couple months ago I started getting more serious about my skincare routine… because I’m not a millionaire and don’t want to age faster than I have to!
Now, let’s talk about the Lanoline Rosehip Oil which I picked up a couple months ago at Winners for $10.00 CAD for 35 ml (yes. It’s cheap!) Considering I have not tried another Rosehip oil for my skin, spending $10 on one seemed like a safe bet.
The Lanoline Rosehip oil is a product by Pearson and Craig which source their products locally from New Zealand. It claims to contain collagen and vitamins A & C to help retain the firmness of your skin. Rosehip oil also helps to keep skin plump and hydrated.
Although it is only $10 CAD the packaging is quite nice. Housed in a glass bottle with a good pump this product comes out clear and with a gel consistency. When applied to the skin it absorbs in a matter of minutes and doesn’t weigh down the skin at all.
Does it work?
Considering I’m only 21, I’ve got minimal wrinkles and I can’t say for sure how this could improve the appearance of fine lines. Although I have noticed that my skin feels much more hydrated with daily application. When I forget to use it I notice that my skin does feel much more dry.
In terms of evening skin tone this product hasn’t done a great job – so I think if you’re looking for a rosehip oil to tone skin you should look for other products. This is much more targeted to keeping skin firm and plump.
Would I repurchase?
If you’re looking to limit the onset of aging and you’ve reached the point where fine lines and wrinkles have started to make an appearance the Lanoline Rosehip Oil could be really useful! For myself, I don’t see drastic results and I’d like to work on evening my skin tone first. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a link to it for purchasing online in Canada… but if you keep an eye out at Winners you might be able to snag a bottle!
