I got this oil from the BR Beauty Vault earlier this year. It is made in New Zealand from organic rosehip oil. It is the only product of this brand I’ve tried. After trying it I looked on their website, and they have a good range of products that look just lovely, and are marketed at an affordable price.
It comes in a 30ml dropper bottle and is simple to use.
It is a yellow oil that goes clear once it has absorbed into the skin, but is pretty yellow until it absorbs. It is kind of greasy and smells like oil.
The recommendation is to use it after cleansing twice per day, and I’ve applying it then following it with moisturiser as recommended. I am a big fan of oils, but this one has taken me a bit to get used to. It lacks the finesse and soft scent of other oils. This is only a slight drawback though, it is still a good oil. I say that because I’ve been using it last thing at night and when I wake up the next day my skin still has a soft, slighty oily feel to it, which I really like, as it feels like the oil has been working on it all night.
It claims to improve the appearance of scars. stretch marks, uneven skin tone, and advises using it for a minimum of 10 weeks, This bottle won’t last 10 weeks and I probably won’t buy another one, simply because there are other oils I prefer to this. I can’t speak for it improving scars or stretch marks, as I’ve only used it on my face. I can’t say it has evened my skin tone yet either, but it certainly has value in softening and nurturing dry skin.
At around $25.00 it is good value for a 30ml bottle of oil, and you can use it quite sparingly. It would be especially good for people who don’t like a scent with their rosehip oil, and could be used as just a night time oil, as it works beautifully overnight.
I’m a bit ambivalent about this oil as it has both good and bad traits for me (I miss having a lovely smell on my skin) but would recommend it as a great night oil for people with dry skin like mine, or someone on a budget looking for a great value oil.
I will most likely buy and try some of the other Caithy brand products in the future, as the range looks lovely.
