Never has there been a simpler way to make big changes to your skin, oil cleansing is incredible for ALL skin types. Enjoy a new oil cleansing blend and skincare routine that's just perfect for hyperpigmentation, acne prone or mature skin.
Oil cleansing may sound counter-intuitive to some but when you consider that oil breaks down oil it begins to makes sense, even for acne prone skin. Why? Certain oils (high in linoleic acid) go after the grime without stripping your natural oils which in turn prevents your skin from overreacting and producing more oil. I love the simplicity of oil cleansing and how my skin feels afterwards, soft and moisturized rather than dry and in need of a thick moisturizer.
Traditionally, carrier oils like olive, coconut and castor oil are used but they're not super successful for many of us because of the high oleic acid content. For some, these oils can make breakouts worse and have proven to be too drying for mature skin.
When skin's sebum is high in oleic acid sebum becomes hard and clogs pores. Applying (feeding) our skin natural carrier oils that are high in linoleic acid balances sebum to also be higher in linoleic acid which helps tired skin look vibrant and clear.
If what I just said resonates with you, I think you'll love my best alternative!
Rosehip seed oil is the only vegetable oil to contain retinol (vitamin A). It is also high in the essential fatty acids, linoleic acid (omega-6) and linolenic acid (omega-3), as well as the antioxidant lycopene and beta-carotene. The essential fatty acids are naturally moisturizing while the anti-oxidants and beta-carotene help prevent premature aging and promote wound healing while regenerating tissue. Vitamin A (retinol) fights wrinkles, sun damage and hyperpigmentation. It's really great for all skin types, high quality (organic, unrefined, cold pressed) Rosehip Seed Oil is incredibly nourishing. You may remember me referring to this oil as a "dry oil", this only means that the high essential fatty acid content is absorbed by the skin rapidly, a good thing!
I never thought skincare could be this easy or inexpensive but as it turns out, I was wrong for many years!
The best skincare is the simplest skincare.

Rosehip Seed Oil hardly has a scent at all and the skin serum is a little more fragrant more overwhelmingly so. Try to find a quality, organic rosehip seed oil, preferably unrefined and from Chile.
Hi, I am interested in changing my skin care regime. Currently I use Clinique’s pink cleaning wash. It is gentle enough for me and I like the creamy foam. I am interested to change to the Rose hip seed oil and then follow up with your Ultimate Skin Serum. Does it matter who’s Rose hip oil I buy as I notice in your shop it comes from another company and does not appear to be a formulation of yours. I am assuming the skin serum is your formulation. Are both products heavily scented? I will wait to purchase until I hear back from you. Thanks so much. I definitely enjoy your blogs and follow you on Facebook. I shared you with my daughter and she is enjoying your products.
Could you use the CW Emu oil instead of the Rosehip Seed Oil for the oil cleansing or is this too emollient?
Re: Rosehip Oil Cleansing
Step 6 says “Repeat process”
Does that mean repeat the steps above for a 2nd time? If so why repeat it? I am trying to understand before I purchase it. Then apply light Ultimate Skin Serum.
Please let me know. Thank you
I might change it up a bit with the Rosehip Seel Oil for cleansing.
Thank you again Rebecca!
Pat, if you love your coconut oil cleanse by all means stick with it however, if you’re ready for something lighter and brighter or just even a change, Rosehip Seed Oil is lovely as an oil cleanser! Make sure you find an organic, unrefined RHSO, this is what I use and love!
I doubt Rosehip Seed Oil will be quite as powerful as your retinol cream however, it will help the process!
I currently use a Retinol Cream that I apply at night…..after coconut oil cleansing, your wonderful Ultimate Skin Serum and then the Retinol Cream….would cleansing with the Rosehip Seed Oil replace the coconut oil cleansing and my Retinol Cream??
Emu oil would most likely be too heavy for oil cleansing but people enjoy it as a moisturizer!
Hi Sharon, I changed the verbage so as not to be confusing. Repeating is in regards to rinsing cloth and wiping off makeup and dirt until you’ve got it all :)
