It helps fade scars, too.
I love a good skincare concoction formulated with a list of ingredients I can’t pronounce, but a good one-ingredient product can work wonders, too. If you’re going that route, rosehip is a great multi-tasking ingredient — though not all rosehip oils or extracts are made equally. A standout, according to shoppers, is Radha Beauty’s Rosehip Oil, which is on sale for just $15 at Amazon.
Rosehip is a deeply nourishing, fatty acid-full, antioxidant-rich ingredient, and this USDA-certified organic formula from Radha is a super popular option with 14,000 five-star Amazon ratings.
While there are tons of rosehip oils on the site, dozens of shoppers specifically note that they’re “obsessed” with this pick. One fan even said it “changed [their] life” within two weeks of use. “I used to compulsively pick at my face for years and years to the point of bleeding,” they explained, adding that now, their “acne scars have faded to the point where you can barely tell [they’re there],” and that the results are so drastic they “don’t have to wear makeup anymore.”
Since rosehip oil is the only ingredient at play here, let’s dive into why it’s so powerful: It houses vitamins A, C, and E, along with omega fatty acids 3, 6, and 9, which explains its four main benefits.
First, and perhaps most importantly, it moisturizes skin — in part due to its oil texture and in part because of the presence of the omega 3 and 6 acids. These omega fatty acids not only moisturize skin, but also improve the health of the skin barrier, which prevents that goodness from escaping.
Second, this star ingredient is great for combatting signs of aging; it penetrates through layers of the skin to encourage collagen production and lessen the appearance of wrinkles. Third, at least one study has shown that it can heal and reduce the severity of scars. Finally, it’s a major anti-inflammatory, which makes it effective at soothing irritated, breakout-prone skin — and it can even help soothe skin conditions like eczema. If you’d like a one-sentence summary: Rosehip oil packs anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and skin-nourishing properties in one bottle.
Another satisfied Amazon customer, who is 43 years old, described themselves as “fighting aging like Russell Crowe in The Gladiator,” so they started applying Radha’s Rosehip Oil to their “eyes, neck, bat wings (underarms) and saddle bags” every night. The result? Their “skin is smooth” and “wrinkles are visibly reduced,” plus, they also noticed a skin-tightening benefit, including on their “droopy sagging neck.”
All of those benefits will cost you just $15 thanks to this Amazon sale, so grab your own bottle of the skin-changing Radha Rosehip Oil before it’s gone.
