Life-Flo Pure Rosehip Seed Oil || Review and How to use on Face

I started using oils on my face over a year back but it was restricted only for night time. My dry skin loves oils and I wanted a face oil which was usable even during the day. Rosehip seed oil also known as a dry oil fit the bill perfectly. A blogger I follow wrote an in depth review of Life-flow pure rosehip oil and the next instant, this thing was in my shopping cart! I have already written a detailed post on benefits and uses of rosehip seed oil for skin but I did not write a review of this oil because I wanted to try it for atleast 3 months before giving a proper review

Life-Flo Pure Rosehip Seed Oil Review

Packaging of Life-Flo Pure Rosehip Seed Oil:

Life-Flo has packaged their rosehip seed oil in a brown tinted glass bottle with the cap having fitted dropper . I require just 2-3 drops of oil for one use and the dropper dispenses just the right amount, so I must say very good packaging. The tinted glass bottle also helps keeping the pure oil potent for longer times. the glass bottle means it isnt very travel friendly but pure oils are better stored in glass bottles.

My experience with Life-Flo Pure Rosehip Seed Oil:

I am trying to establish a good night time skin care routine as Iam in my late 20's. The main reason I wanted to try rosehip seed oil is because it has anti ageing properties with almost 80% antioxidants and I think this oil works beautifully as a night serum to delay ageing. I have noticed some sun spots have lightened and my skin feels tighter and supple. Iam not using any night creams at present and only using this oil as a serum. I just use the dropper to get 3 drops to cover my face and neck before going to bed. After a week of using this oil I realized my skin was improving, it looked supple, hydrated and firm too.
The oil is golden yellow in and has a weird kind of smell which I dont like but for something which is so affordable and give such amazing results I am ready to bear the scent. I noticed this oil was light and absorbed into skin quickly when compared to almond oil which i used under my eyes and sometimes on face previously.
The light texture of life-flo rosehip seed oil compelled me to use it even during day and it worked as a moisturizing base under my makeup too. But i need to apply this and give sometime for skin to soak the oil in before I apply foundation or BB cream so I wouldnt suggest this oil for day time if you are short on time.

Availability of life flo rosehip oil: Not easily Available
Life-Flo Pure Rosehip Seed Oil is not easily available in India. It is available at affordable price on but you may have to pay hefty customs duty. I brought my bottle from at more than double the international price. I preferred to buy from amazon india because I wanted to try this oil very quickly. You can order in bulk from iherb and pray that your parcel doesnt get stuck in customs. Even if it does get stuck this quality rosehip oil from life-flo is totally worth the double price paid.

Alternative to life flo rosehip oil in India:
If you are looking to include rosehip seed oil in your skin care regime and want an easily avialble option then there are many brands available on Amazon India. I personally dont trust new names when it comes to skin care but Juice Chemistry Rosehip Oil is a really great alternative which is easily available online at websites like nykaa. The rosehip oil from Juice chemistry is cold pressed, certified organic and 100% pure caomparing well to life flo rosehip oil and is priced well at 540 INR for 30ml.

Life-Flo Pure Rosehip Seed Oil: How to use on Face

Rosehip seed oil application if you have dry skin:

It is always go to apply oils on damp face. So apply after washing you face or spray a facial mist to dampen your face a bit , then take 4  drops of organic rosehip oil on your palm and massage lightly on to your entire face. You can do this before going to bed and then follow it with a moisturizer on top if you feel like your skin needs more hydration. Rosehip oil being a dry oil can be used even during the day like a moisturizer before your makeup. I have applied this oil during day and it has worked well for me, my foundation doesnt slide off, infact my foundation actually looks very natural without any rought patches.

Rosehip seed oil application if you have oily skin:

Using face oils on oily skin can be very tricky but if you really want to go chemical free and start somewhere rosehip oil should be your choice. In winter you can apply pure rosehip oil directly on to your face and after 20 minutes or so take a cotton pad and wipe any excess before you go to bed. You can try this for a couple of days and see how it works for you. The best way to use this oil for oily skinned beauties is to mix a drop in your night cream and apply on your face to wake up to smooth supple skin

Rosehip seed oil application if you have sensitive skin

This oil is soothing and has healing properties making it ideal for sensitive skinned women. Apply rosehip oil directly on your face and neck. You can also mix this with 2 drops of tea tree essential oil or rosemary.
