Since it’s still February, I wanted to contine with the floral theme that I have going at the moment. So today, I wanted to share with you all my first review on an organic, vegan and cruelty-free product from Australia, the A’kin Certified Organic Rosehip Oil.

Are A’kin cruelty free?

A’kin was launched in Australia in 2002 using pioneering technologies and leading the way in natural skincare. The philosophy at A’kin is all about creating pure, authentic and beautifully aromatic skincare, crafted without parabens,
sulfates, artificial colours or fragrances. This high quality, natural skincare brand is cruelty-free, vegan and completely organic!

A’kin Certified Organic Rosehip Oil

The A’kin Certified Organic Rosehip Oil is 100% natural with a minimum concentration of 80% essential fatty acids (Omega 3,6,9) for optimal skin health. This antioxidant and vitamin rich oil helps to protect the skin from the effect of environmental elements, prevent signs of ageing and help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It’s perfect for use on scars, strech marks, uneven skin tone and nourishing dry lips. It is recommended to apply 3-4 drops of the oil after cleansing by gently massaging it into the face, neck and decolletage prior to moisturiser, and to use it twice daily.

Normally this product is priced at £40.00 for 45ml, fortunately it’s currently available to buy at QVC for £25.68.

 

Review

As with most organic oils, the smell is a tad strong, but once you massage the oil into your skin the smell fades. When I first applied the oil to my face, I found the texture to be quite lightweight compared to most oils that I have used in the past. The rosehip oil easily blended into my skin, giving it a natural and healthly looking shine without appearing oily on my skin. Generally, I found that my skin absorbs the oil quite quickly when my skin is slightly warm from having a shower or washing my face with warm water.

I’ve been using the rosehip oil overnight and it keeps my skin, my face and parts of my body, hydrated throughout the night. As I mentioned before, you can use the rosehip oil to reduce the appearance of scars, and I must admit that I am quite impressed with the way that the scars on my face and body have begun to fade since using the oil.

In fact, in the past few days I decided to wear the oil under my makeup, as it’s kind a new trend that I’ve seen online and wanted to experiment with this oil. When applying makeup over the oil, my skin has had such a natural glow to it throughout the day and it stayed hydrated despite it the freezing temperatures outside – I absolutely love it! 💆🏽🌹✨

I’d like to thank the lovely people at RebKan PR and A’kin for sending me this amazing product! Click here to buy the A’kin Rosehip Oil from QVC, and to check out the rest of the A’kin collection at QVC.

  1. The oil sounds like it smells really nice and lightweight!! Most oils seem to be so greasy and thick that I get put off putting anything like that on my skin. I will have to give it a try 🙂 xxx
