Thoughts: I have never tried rose hip oil and for that reason, I was excited to try this product.
It comes in a dropper and you have full control of the quantity you pump. I'm not too sure if I got a bad dropper or not, but I have to move quickly from the packaging to my hand. It doesn't completely hold the product. It drips little by little, but it's not bothersome at all. I just have to be quick.
Here's a swatch of the product on my hand. The consistency of the product is on the medium.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, it has a strong scent. I cannot distinguish the scent. It's something I have never smelled before. All I could say it's on the musky side. In all honesty when I first tried this product, the scent was overbearing. With time and usage, it became bearable. Secondly, the feel and the concept of this oil reminds me of Bio-Oil. I remember when Bio-Oil was so popular here. It kind of calmed down or maybe it's just me thinking that. Anyways, it looks and feels like an oil. It takes some time to absorb onto your skin. You have to massage until it's absorbed. The pro to that is you're massaging your skin. It's good to circulate the blood. The con is if you're like me, it takes too much time. Once it's absorbed, it still leaves a greasy feel. The skin looks youthful and glowy. Lastly, I haven't been consistent with this product. Actually, I just haven't been consistent with skin care regimen. I told myself I have to be better. It's been extremely hard with my tiredness. I need to fix that. I'm working on that. That's another story. For that reason, I cannot say it has completely been working for me. I do notice my skin feeling more hydrated. That's a good start!

* Comes in a dropper; full control of the quantity being pumped.
* Sanitary safe.
* Medium consistency.
* Need to massage to absorb the product; good for circulation.
* Skin looks youthful.
* Skin glows.
* Hydrates the skin.
* Cool sensation; need to put in the refrigerator after it's opened.
* Cruelty-free.

* Can only be purchased on amazon.
* Strong musky scent.
* Slight greasy feel.

Would repurchase: Maybe.

I've been hearing about rose hip oil. The benefits sound nice. Maybe it's just this brand. Hmmm

Have you tried Bio Oil? I think the concept is very similar. I heard from people with oily skin, they still like Bio Oil. Maybe this won't leave your skin oily.

I tried another rose hip oil. They seem similar. I'm new to these type of products too... hehe~
