Product Review: Rose-Hip Plus Rosehip Oil Skin Boost Roll-On

As many of you know, I have been swearing by Rosehip Oil while I’ve been pregnant, as many of the other serums that I used previously simply contained ingredients no suitable for use while pregnant. And so I fell in love with Rosehip Oil, and it has done wonders to my skin and has now become a stable in my bathroom cabinet. Here are my thoughts on the *Rosehip Oil Skin Boost Roll On from Rose-Hip Plus;

What They Say:
"Rosehip Vital Rosehip Oil is a 100% pure and natural Certified Organic skincare product, cold pressed from the seeds of the Rosehip (Rosa Canina) that helps to support healthy-looking skin for use on the face and body."

RRP: $14.95 (15ml) - Available from select pharmacies

What I Say:
I have previously reviewed the standard Rosehip Oil from Rosehip Vital, which you can see here. Since then, the brand has changed is name to Rosehip Plus.

Usually Rosehip Oils come in dark glass dropper bottles, but as this one is different as it comes in a white plastic squeezy tube with a roller-ball.

The actual Rosehip Oil is the same as what I have previously reviewed; the oil is cold pressed, which basically that means that the oil is extracted without heat (or solvents or chemicals, for that matter!). This helps keep all the beneficial ingredients in the end product so they aren’t lost in the manufacturing process, making the oil a lot more beneficial! The super fine filtering processes means the final product is said to be one of the finest quality Rose-Hip oils you can find!
It is made from 100% Australian Certified Organic, and is free from pesticides, artificial fertilisers or synthetic chemicals, as well as it is free from preservatives, colours and added fragrances. It is simply 100% pure and natural.

Rosehip oil is suitable to use both morning and night. However, on my combination skin it is more than sufficient to just at night time, as during the day it feels a little too greasy. Still, I can use the Rosehip Oil without my skin getting too oily and congested and it breaking out.

Rosehip Oil contains naturally occurring Bioflavonoids which are vitamin-like substances which act as potent anti-oxidants, helping to reduce free radical damage in the skin. The Rose-Hip Vital Rosehip Oil is rich in naturally-occurring vitamins (Anti-Ageing Vitamins A and C; Anti-inflammatory Vitamin E), antioxidants (Lycopene & Beta-Carotene) and essential fatty acids (Omega 3, 6 & 9), to keep the skin hydrated and moisturised.

Rosehip Oil can help with:
Reduce appearance of stretchmarks and scars

Maintain skin hydration
Improve the appearance of dry skin

Diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Promote skin elasticity and texture

Repair sun damage and skin tissue
Reduce pigmentation

Using the Rosehip Oil, keeps my skin feeling extremely soft and hydrated, as well as it looks clearer, and skin tone is more even. My skin has never been clearer. I've had no breakouts major since using the Rose-Hip Vital Rosehip Oil, and actually, it is almost like the oil production in my skin has normalised and it is no longer as greasy

I have also tried using the rosehip oil on my scars, but as these are very old surgery scars, I am yet to notice any major improvements, which I am not sure I will either seeing they are several years old.

The Rosehip Oil has a very natural scent, which I however do not mind, and which fades quickly after the oil has been absorbed into the skin.

So where in all, where this Rosehip Oil differs is with the new packaging. And compared to the glass dropper bottles it is so much easier to control the amount of oil it dispenses. And due to the roller ball, it is also so easy to apply to the face, easily gliding over the face without the need to push or pull, giving your face a nice gentle and cooling massage at the same time.

And if you are going away on holidays, this is so much easier to bring along, no longer any need to worry about the glass bottle breaking in your toilet bag. I so wish I had had this at hand when I was just at the hospital a few weeks ago giving birth (my skin got so dry while I was there that it would have been a great help too!)

The Rosehip Oil is very concentrated, and you only need a few drops for the full face, so even this 15ml tube will last you a long time. At $14.95 for 15ml, this is a more expensive than buying the rosehip oil in the regular bottle, but considering how easy it is to use, and that you are likely to use less (and not waste any either), it is still an absolute bargain product.

What do you think of the Rose-Hip Vital Oil? Have you tried Rose-Hip oil before? And if so, what did you think? And what do you think of this new Roll-on tube?



  1. I saw this too and thought it was a really interesting product but I didn't know if I should get it or not since I don't know what rosehip oil exactly does but you totally convinced me! Thanks for the review :)


    1. Thanks Jessica. With combination skin, I also didn't think that rosehip oil would work for me, but actually I am convinced that it has made my skin less greasy!! And it is such a great serum at a bargain price!

  2. I never tried this Rose Hip Vital, but it's sounds good, I have a dry skin..
    Nice review :)

    1. Thanks heaps Meutia. If you have dry skin, I am sure your skin will love it. And again, it is comes at such a cheap price for a serum!

  3. i don't think this is available here locally :(

    1. You may be lucky that you can purchase it online..

  4. I just went to the mall and got the roll-on version too! :) I had a hard time choosing between the roll on and the 30 ml bottle since the 30 ml bottle with the dropper is only slightly more expensive, while double the amount. Thought that would be the smart decision but got sucked in with the roll-on packaging! Can't wait to try it out though gonna use it starting tonight!! ♥

    1. Hehehe, Im such a sucker for packaging too!! Look forward to hearing what you think of it!

  5. Hi, dearest Karen, my hearty congrats! I thought a lot of on you in the last days and asked myself if you are already a mum – and now I´m so happy to read this good news! Hope you and your baby are well! And I´m sure there is nothing more important in this wonderful world than the own baby <3
    So I really appreciate it, that you found some time to visit my blog :) Wish you and your baby only the best and send you 1000 kisses to Australia!
