Is it just me that always finds the urge to buy products when I see a good review from someone I trust? Influencers are literally thriving at the moment and it’s no surprise really when this is mine and a lot of others’ outlook on buying beauty products! My bank account feels it – a lot. For the future of my blog, I wanted to do a monthly series where I share with you all my favourite product(s) for the month and I might even share those products I’ve disliked after buying. I find these mini blog series so refreshing and a great way to gain inspiration from others. For June, I only have one product to share with you and I promise it’s a good’en!
The Ordinary – 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil
I bought this product on a whim from Beauty Bay when I was topping up my makeup. One of my longtime friends – Meryn – had given my an insight into her new skin care regime and absolutely raved about this brand ‘The Ordinary’. I trusted her and just knew I needed to purchase something from them ASAP. I managed to pick up the Rose Hip Seed Oil and oh my god it’s changed my skin routine for the BETTER! Keep reading for information on the product and what I loved about it.
This formulation uses 100% pure Rosehip Seed Oil that is both cold-pressed and organic. Rosehip Seed Oil is rich in linoleic acid, linolenic acid and pro-vitamin A, all of which degrade when the oil extraction process involves heat. While cold-pressed extraction is complex, it preserves all of the quality of this important oil which has been shown to reduce signs of photo-aging and many other skin conditions.
Apply once a day to the face, ideally at bedtime after application of water-based treatments.

My Thoughts and Feelings
Putting this on my face makes me feel SO hydrated. Alls I use is one peplum full and squeeze it onto my hand, I then slightly rub it together and massage it onto my face in soft, circular motions. I focus on spreading the oil all around the areas of my face to make sure it’s even.
You have to wash your hands after doing this as the excess left over can make you feel greasy, but I don’t mind this step. Once completed, it’s instantaneously noticeable how dewy this product makes my skin. I have combination type skin and think it works perfectly. For my oily skinned girls out there, I’m not sure if this product would be the right fit for you as I am guessing it would just be adding on top of all your oils you naturally have anyway – but at the end of the day I am no dermatologist and it’s your preference whether you want to try it or not! One thing I want to mention about the product is it’s scent. It’s not the nicest smelling product I have in my collection of skincare, but I promise you, it’s not horrific either. It’s giving me organic, I don’t have any artificial shit in me, smelling vibes. You know, something you don’t mind putting on your face because you know it’s not got any harmful chemicals in?
When I wake up, my face feels so revitalised and fresh. My redness from spots always reduces and the texture of my skin feels so smooth and seamless. I have been using this product for well over a month now and don’t think I am ever going to stop. I find it doesn’t block my pores, or break me out. If anything it helps reduce the amount of spots I have over time. I have found that my scarring from past spots has gradually reduced on my cheeks and T zone, which is something I have always been insecure about when wearing no makeup. As an avid no makeup wearer, I will sometimes make sure that when I am leaving the house I will pop some of the Rose Hip Seed Oil onto my face to give it that extra dewy look and feel.
God I could RAVE about this product for hours on end. I am definitely going to be purchasing more of The Ordinary’s products and let you know how I get on with them. I hope you all enjoyed and let me know if you use any of their products and what you would recommend! Love
