The Ordinary is Not So Ordinary

I recently tried some new products from The Ordinary skin care line.  I love this oil!  The is their 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil.  It is made from 100% Rosa Canina Seed Oil….that’s it…no other ingredients.  This plant oil is extracted without heat to preserve its rich nutrients, including linoleic acid, linolenic acid, and provitamin A.  I apply it at night after I have washed my face and either by itself or after I have applied a glycolic or lactic acid treatment.  It is very soothing to the skin and it absorbs quickly without leaving a greasy residue.  You can even apply another moisturizer on top if desired, but I find that this is not necessary.

Although I don’t have acne, The Ordinary states on their website that because rosehip seed oil is a lightweight oil that is rich in linoleic acid, it makes a good choice for acne-prone or oily skin. Because everyone’s skin is different, they also recommend patch testing any new product before adding it to your routine.

My face has loved this product, especially during these cold and dry months.  I even enjoy using it on my hands and cuticles after a manicure.  The product absorbs right into my skin and keeps my cuticles looking a feeling great.

I purchased mine from the Beautylish website.  It is 30ml in size and at the time of this publication it was $9.80.  Have you tried any of The Ordinary products?  If so, I would love to hear about it!  I have a few in my routine and I love this brand!
