I love face oils. I have tried the Odacite Ro+y, a rosehip ylang-ylang serum concentrate and fell in love with it. It works so well on my skin, so I started to think that my skin loves rosehip oil. Since the Odacite Ro+y is very pricey, it is $45 for 5 ml. Yes, 5 ml only for that price. In Rupiah it cost around nine hundred thousand for 5 ml. It this too expensive that I decided not to repurchase and trying to find a cheaper alternative for that.
I have researched for an affordable rosehip oil, and I finally chose trilogy certified organic rosehip oil. And I have tried this for 6 months.
Unlike the Odacite Ro+y which has a pleasant smell, the trilogy certified organic rosehip oil has a fishy smell similar to Goodness chia seeds oil. I don’t mind a fishy smell as long as the product works on my skin. The smell fades away after application anyway. The texture is a little bit sticky. I need to apply it on my damp face after toner to help it sink into my skin. I cannot use it too much, only 2-3 drops of oil.
After I pat it on my face, I put on a sheet mask for 20 minutes. Then top it off with a light moisturizer.
This rosehip oil is more affordable than Odacite Ro+y, for $29 you will get 20 ml of product. Trilogy also has a bigger size which is 45 ml for $54.
This oil is good for rejuvenating my skin, I will see my skin plumped in the next morning. It looks as if I am well rested. When my skin is dehydrated, I will also use this oil to hydrate my skin.
Trilogy certified organic rosehip oil is easy to find on an online shop.
Sadly this oil does not work well on me after a few uses. When I use it for 3 days straight, it was too much for me and my skin started to break out. When I only use it for twice a week, it started to get better. The thing is, the product shelf life is only 6 months after opening, which makes using it for only twice a week is a waste. By the sixth month, I still have so much product left and it is already expired.
For me there no result on reducing PIH on my face. I also notice that on me, this rosehip oil is not compatible with ingredients like ginseng, because when I tried to combine it with my sulwhasoo sleeping mask, I have acne on my chin the next morning.
The packaging is made of a glass bottle, so you need to be careful when taking it for traveling.
I only use it at night time. Because my skin is oily, when I use it I will combine it with a light moisturizer like the clinique moisture surge. If I combine it with my Blossom jeju camellia soombi moisturizer, it will end up felt too rich and thick on my face. I will not repurchase the Trilogy certified organic rosehip oil. Instead, I will go back to my favorite Goodness chia seeds oil.
