What people rave about Rosehip oil?
Rosehip oil is rich in omega 3 & 9, vitamins as well as antioxidants. A few research showed it had a skin regenerative effect, meaning it is helpful in reducing wrinkle/ fine line, scar, pigmentation etc.
--------------------------- Some questions I had ---------------------------------
Sukin positions itself at the lower end of the spectrum extracts seed oil from Rosa Eglanteria for its certified organic rosehip oil with a RRP $19.95 (20ml). Yet, its facial moisturizer retailed for $9.95 (125ml) uses Rosa Canina rosehip oil.
The other problem is that it is difficult for consumers to know the country of original of the oil. Companies normally do not name where they source their products but simply 'imported ingredients' :/

Swatches are shown below. (left: powder blush Glowing, right: stick bronzer Sunkissed)
The shade of glowing is not too orangey nor muddy and it creates a natural, matte bronzing effect.
Although I am not a fan of shimmery bronzer, Sunkissed is really lovely and I like it! The shimmers in it help to create a glow and I can see myself wearing it with my summer tan. Alternatively I think it will work excellent to bronze up your legs!
My skin always gets terrible in winter (part of the reasons why I dont like winter). It gets more serious this year and I have very noticeable dry patches + redness around my eye area. Sometimes I get up in the morning, I find cracks and bleeding in my inter corners. Doctor suggested that it might be mild eczema and recommended hydrocortiscone.
I know I am very slow to jump on the bandwagon. I got a Korres lip butter in pomegranate. I do like it but lip balm in pot is never convenient.
