Rose hip seed oil is pressed from the seeds of rose bushes and is a powerhouse of ingredients for your skin.  It is most popular for being a natural source of Vitamin A – a more gentle form of retinol.  The oil also  has essential fatty acids that can assist in tissue regeneration that may reduce fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks. It is high in linoleic acid – an essential fatty acid that may reduce acne. It also contains Vitamin C, another anti-aging ingredient that stimulates the production of collagen and reduces the signs of aging.

I have bought rose hip seed oil on Amazon (as with all oils, I prefer Organic and cold pressed), but I like to get it from The Ordinary now that they carry it. I use the oil almost every evening on my face – I will either mix it in with Stratia Liquid Gold or I will mix it with my serum. Not only does it provide a little boost of benefits with the vitamins and fatty acids, it also provides a little extra moisture for my dehydrated skin. It is pretty lightweight and I think that normal/combo/oil skins would not find it to be too heavy if it was used on its own or under moisturizer.  Have you used rose hip seed oil? Let me know what you thought of it! Oils are my favorite one ingredient beauty products and I have a few more lined up to talked about in this series!

Tonight is retinol night so I tried to keep everything else simple, hydrating and nourishing.

 

Not pictured is makeup removal with Heimish All Clean Balm.

I cleansed with Stratia Velvet Cleansing Milk.

Acid tonight was Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid (I prefer this over an AHA when I am using retinol).

Hydrating toner was Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner. Normally, I would do the Seven Skin Method, but tonight was about a four-ish skin method … I was in too much of a hurry for all seven layers.

Next, I used a thin layer of prescription Tretinoin 0.05%.

Followed by my favorite Indie Lee Calendula Eye Balm focused on the corners of my eyes where I can get very dry.

Finally, I took one pump of Stratia Liquid Gold mixed with four drops of Deciem’s The Ordinary Rose Hip Seed Oil for extra hydration.
