Oils have always been a part of my skincare and hair care routine. As I have dry to normal skin, I chose rosehip oil which was my first face oil.
With its wealth of essential fatty acids, including linoleic and linolenic acid, rosehip oil is known for its anti-ageing and hydrating property. It helps minimize the imperfections and scars, unify the skin tone, illuminate the skin and improve firmness and elasticity. Rosehip oil may also help calm irritation including eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, etc.
I have used rosehip oil from Antipodes and then tried a raw version from Aroma zone. After a brief break and after trying different oils, I have come back to my beloved rosehip oil and this time, it is from Pai.
The Pai BioRegenerate Rosehip oil is a cult favourite. It’s vegan, organic and cruelty free.

The oil comes in a clear matte bottle with a pipette which I find very practical. You can serve only the needed amount and a little goes a long way. That means, it is going to last a long time. The oil is deep orange in color because of the antioxidant carotenoids.
I use the oil on my daytime routine by adding 2-3 drops to my moisturizer. During the first 3 days, I was having little bumps on my face, like I was slightly breaking out. I think it was because my face was adjusting to the product after not using it for a long time. After that, my skin got used to it and noticed uniform skin tone.
The oil gets absorbed well by my skin and it doesn’t feel greasy if you use just the right amount. I have read articles where people felt that the oil left an orangey tint because of its color, but I didn’t notice any such thing.
Overall, I notice an improvement in my skin tone and my skin feels soft and bright all day. The oil has also reduced imperfections and gave me an even skin tone. I will surely continue using rosehip oil in my skincare routine.
