Rio Rosa Mosqueta Rosehip Oil Review
I was kindly sent the Rio Rosa Mosqueta Rosehip Oil* to review a month or so ago and over the past couple of weeks I've been really putting it to the test. I originally took pictures of this before using it but when I went to upload them, the quality was awful! This product has been everywhere with me and has been in my handbag for the majority of the time which explains the battered, makeup covered box. Oh well, but at least you can see that it has been loved!
The Rosehip Oil claims to;
Dramatically reduce all visible scars
Diminish Stretch Marks
Smooth away fine lines and crow's feet
Reduce the signs of ageing
Treat sun damage and dry skin
Keep your skin supple, soft & hydrated.
Obviously after reading what the Oil claimed to be able to do to my skin, I instantly had high hopes for the product. I decided that I'd test it on a scar on my hand and also use it on my face once in the morning and once at night. I'm only 23 so I'm not too bothered about ageing products just yet but I wanted to see whether it made an overall difference in my complexion.
I applied about two pumps to my hand and just massaged it in to my face. The formula of the oil is quite impressive. It doesn't feel as if you're coating your face in vegetable oil or any oil at all in fact. I'd say it feels more like a thick water. It has no fragrance at all which is great as super sweet fragrances just don't do it for me when it comes to skincare. My face didn't particularly feel or look oily and it didn't irritate my skin whatsoever (my skin is quite sensitive too). I can honestly say that my skin is much much much more softer than it was before I started using the oil. You know when you apply sudocrem to your face and wake up in the morning with a face as soft as a baby's bum? It just feels like that constantly. I love it. It's a miracle in a bottle.
I applied the Oil twice a day on the scar on my hand and I definitely have noticed a difference. It's still visible but when I used to run my hand over the scar, it felt really raised. It doesn't any more so that's a huge plus for me.
I honestly couldn't recommend the rosehip oil more. It's relatively girly, sleek, does exactly what it says on the bottle, Rio Rosa Mosqueta do not test on animals and it's a steal at £10.49 for a 20ml bottle and trust me, a little goes a long way.

As always, this review is 100% my truthful opinion. Have any of you tried any other products that are in the Rio Rosa Mosqueta range?
