Even though I live in a very humid climate I do still suffer from dry skin areas. A huge contributing factor to my dry skin is the ability to be out in the sun almost every day. Thankfully there are products out there to assist.

Before being asked to try out Dr. Song Rosehip Oil I had absolutely no clue what it was and what on earth I would use it for. Being that I love to learn new things I quickly found out more information about beauty product and then checked more into Dr. Song. Once I saw that this product was 100% Pure Rosehip Oil and I saw the many different benefits and uses I couldn’t wait to give it a try.
From Dr. song:
100% Pure rosehip oil
USDA Certified organic
Cold Pressed and specially processed for cosmetic use
Bottled in glass and comes with a no hassle 365 day money back guarantee!! You don’t even have to return the bottle!
This Rosehip Oil is 100% pure, organic virgin oil. The oil is extracted from rose-bush seeds, using a special process to preserve its natural cosmetic qualities, which includes containing high amounts of essential fatty acids, particularly linoleic and linolenic.
Since I basically had no knowledge of what Rosehip Oil was it was important for me to get more information before I would try a product much less introduce it to anyone else.
Here is briefly what I found out:
Rosehip Oil is something fairly new being introduced on the market now. I believe it comes from more people wanting natural products for their skin care regime. Out are the days of people just using anything, we are becoming a culture that wants to know what we are using and we want things that are good for us. We are looking for more healthy and natural alternatives.
Essential fatty Acids Omega-3 and Omega-6, are the components in this Pure organic Rosehip Oil by Dr. Song. It’s a pressed seed oil that is extracted from Wild rose-bush seeds found in the Southern Andes, South Africa and places in Europe.
There is a lot of information on Rosehip Oil and many different uses. Seems its been around longer than I even thought. What I have determined; Rosehip Oil is a Healthy Essential Oil with many different uses.
My package from Dr. Song arrived quickly and I was amazed that it came in a 4 oz bottle. Nowadays with the 1 and 2 oz things it’s surprising when you get more. I loved the glass dropper, the nurse in me prefers glass. The dropper is large so you need to be careful not to have too much in it, unless you intend to use it on a larger area.
I was thinking this was gonna be messy and probably ruin my clothes (it’s an oil right). I put on junk clothes and set out to try it on my face.
To my surprise there is barely a smell that is barely noticeable and doesn’t linger long. It looked oily, probably because of its amber color and name. It has a very thin and light texture that I was not expecting at all. I applied a thin layer on my face and neck; not much is needed. My skin absorbed it very nicely, I could feel the hydration, but it was very light and barely there. I thought it was the perfect balance. My skin feels soft and not oily at all. I’m able to wear regular clothes and even lie down on my pillow without leaving oil marks or stains.
My teenage daughter has a tiny scar on her upper cheek. She’s had it since she was a toddler, her older brother hit her “accidentally” with his hockey stick. She’s been applying the Dr. Song Rosehip Oil on it daily for a couple of weeks and has noticed the dark line seems a little lighter. The texture of the scar is not as raised and seems softer to us.
I have really bad cuticles and am guilty of some nail-biting at times as well. I wash my hands constantly and I’m obsessed with hand sanitizers. This takes a toll on my hands and leaves my fingers very dry. I have been rubbing a small amount of the Rosehip Oil on my fingertips massaging my cuticle areas with it. I’ll then rub the excess on my palms. I have noticed a significant difference in my cuticles. I’m able to use the oil on my fingers and it absorbs so well I don’t need to wipe it off at all. My hands aren’t greasy and there is no residue. I love it!
Another great use is on my hair. When I’m having some wind-blown bushy moments and I don’t have time to straighten my hair, I put a small amount in the palm of my hand and rub it sparingly through my hair. It makes a nice hair balm and looks like I spent just a little bit more time getting ready 🙂
Last weekend my son had a little bit of a burn on the back of his neck (missed that area with the sunscreen) after being at the soccer field ALL day. He’d been trying aloe after being in the sun but didn’t think it was helping. I rubbed a little bit of the Dr. Song Rosehip Oil and it seemed to soothe his neck. He used it for a couple more days. We both thought the burn diminished faster and there was no peeling. Which is a thing teenagers are so self conscious about. It’s nice to have this alternative for burns and I can’t wait to see how it works on those really awful face sunburns we do our best to avoid.
Take a look into all these great things you can do with this essential oil, you’ll be amazed. I love Dr. Song Rosehip Oil for the mere fact it is 100% USDA Organic and being sold here on Amazon for a reasonable $14.99. They offer a 1 year money back guarantee!
