Product Review - Natio Ageless Certified Organic Rosehip Oil
Skin care is something I obsess about. I do everything in my power to make sure my skin looks and feels its best, and it all comes down to what I put in or on my body. I try to do the best I can when it comes to food and drinks, but I do slip up occasionally. However, I am extremely cautious about what I put on my skin.
I have been using Natio products for many, many years, based on the fact the company is Australian owned, animal testing free, 94% of the products are made in Australia, and nearly everything is vegan. Natio products are mostly plant based (some products have a few synthetic ingredients here and there), and are affordable despite being hidden amongst all of the prestigious skin care and make up companies in big retail stores.
I had the pleasure of attending a free workshop last week and met two sales representatives (two of the loveliest ladies I have ever met, by the way) who walked us through the vast range of products, spoke of their benefits, and what skins type they are suitable for. I have always used cleaners and creams containing Rosehip Oil, but I never thought of purchasing the oil on its own.
After a week of using the oil, I can definitely notice many differences; the skin tone on my face is even, clear and smooth (it almost looks ‘glowing’), blemish scars are fading, my nails are looking healthier and stronger around the cuticles, and the list goes on. I find it hard to believe that this product has worked so quickly and so effectively.
Rosehip Oil is excellent to prevent the signs of aging (wrinkles, pigmentation), scarring, burns, dry skin and eczema. It is high in vitamins A and C which help with damaged skin, and very high in fatty acids which help regenerate cell structures and membranes. But despite being an oil, it won’t clog pores and cause further problems with those that suffer from acne and breakouts (I know, too good to be true). Believe me, I have tried my fair share of oils in the past: Bio Oil, Palmer’s etc, all of which make the skin greasy and cause more problems than they fix. Rosehip Oil is easily absorbed by the skin, unlike others, meaning the skin is still able to breathe without the nasty layer of fat covering the skin. It is suitable for all skin types - dry to oily, and can even help with acne prone skin.
You can buy Rosehip Oil from health food shops, and many other cosmetic brands have their own for purchase: but beware of the price. I wouldn’t be paying more than $20 for 15mL, so don’t get ripped off. Some people are put off by the “earthy” smell of the oil, but in my opinion it smells like black tea which is rather pleasant. I have fallen deeply love with this product, and I recommend it to anyone.
Application and tips:
- After cleansing and toning, apply a small drop to your face and gently massage in until absorbed. Follow with your favourite moisturiser
- Massage into finger tips/nails/cuticles, or add 1 drop to warm water and allow your hands/feet to soak
- Can be worn during the day and under make up, but it may affect the longevity the make up.
- Massage 1 - 3 drops onto scars
