Beauty // Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil


I feel like I see everyone with an interest in green skincare has a well loved bottle of Pai's Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil. 

As you can see mine has been well used and for good reason. It has become a staple in my skincare routine and I have been loving it. I love the texture, the scent and the results I get when I use it regularly. I had tried a few cheaper alternatives before I purchased a bottle from Pai. At £22, its not out of many people's budget, seeing as it does last a long time, it has a long self life.
I often try a cheaper product first, especially when its a new ingredient and I want to test it out. I dont know if that seems redundant, but I always look for affordable products that offer results. If I'm not satisfied, I go up on price a bit. I'm really glad I purchased this after about a year of thinking about it! - I kid you not (I was keen on using products up before I brought anything new)

I feel that this bottle is great value, because I can use it in many ways. During Summer this is all I put on my face after cleansing and toning and of course..... an eye cream (my fave). During Autumn I noticed that the oil on it's own was not enough to prevent the dry patches I can get around my mouth and one my cheeks. I have dryer skin now that I am taking tamoxifen (it causes menopause type side effects). But I know I that I have had dry- combination skin before, so it is not a massive deal.

Come Winter, I have gotten in the habit of massaging a few drops of the oil into my skin. I do this whilst my toner or face spritz is still damp and then let it sink in to the skin for a few minutes. I will finish with a thin layer of face cream and I'm good to go, my skin stays hydrated for a lot longer. I have been doing this day and night for about five 4 months and I see this working for me well into the Spring.

What's key, for me at least, is that my skin likes thin layers and only a couple. When I whack loads on, or perhaps layer 3-4 products etc, my skin cant handle it, it takes ages to absorb. In the mornings, I cant be doing with that. So Quality and reliability are key.

At night, if I want more of a treat, I will put more of the Pai Rosehip oil on my skin and let it do its magic. I don't put any other cream on top. I dont mind if I am an extra glowy for an hour before bed, especially when I wake up with calm, plump, soft skin.

I often add one drop of the orange elixir to my foundation or tinted moisuriser and it provides a soft glow, while sheering out my base giving a really natural look. It also adds more hydration to a foundation that you may find drying, but love the coverage.

Here's what Pai say:

  • Refines appearance of damaged skin and fine lines.
  • High levels of Omegas help regenerate skin without causing irritation.
  • Unique, highly concentrated blend of Rosehip fruit and seed oil.
  • Skin Type: All Skin Types

    Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil is the ultimate multi-tasker. With regular use, it conditions the skin, improving firmness and elasticity.
    Its high concentrations of essential nutrients feed the skin, restoring it to its clearest, healthiest and most vibrant condition.
    Omegas 3, 6, 7 & 9 fuel the skin’s natural functions and smooth its surface. Potent antioxidants in the form of carotenoids repair and protect the skin against environmental damage.
    For a more concentrated, effective treatment – we blend Rosehip seed oil with Rosehip fruit oil, which contains five times the carotenoids and twice the regenerative sterols.
    Can be used for: dull skin, damaged skin, blemishes, scars, stretch marks, sun damage, age spots, or fine lines.



    Have you tried it? I think I will always have it on standby, even when trying something else.
    Got any facial oil recommendations that you want to share?
