Pai Rosehip Bioregenerate Fruit and Seed Oil Blend


I've learned from my Dad: upgrade, upgrade, upgrade. When possible, lift your vitality with an upgrade of more expensive behavior than attempt to do the same with small tchotchkes.
Well, my dad and I are very different, but I figured I'd take one of his words of wisdom (I was selective, too, might I add) and, verbatim, 'upgrade.'

Though, luckily, I didn't have to pay for my upgrade; it appeared under the sapin de noël--miraculously (although I did throw in a few hints). It was the Pai Rosehip Bioregenerate Fruit and Seed Oil Blend--a mouthful, but also a dreamy blend.
I'd like to propose an idea to the makers of Merriam-Webster: replace the photo for 'upgrade' with this guy.

I've been a fan of rosehip seed oil for quite some time now; remember my musings of the Aura Cacia blend? Well, this takes those standards to a whole new level.
On the outside, they look pretty similar, both orangey red liquids, oily (quelle surprise) in texture.
But, it's what's inside that counts.
High levels of vitamin E and vitamin C pack a punch to ease scarring and general complexion damage.

Yet, this Pai offering decks yet a larger blow. Although other options may be cold pressed, this upgrade is extracted with carbon dioxide to deliver untainted nutrition.
As someone who is not a sucker for staggering marketing claims, I couldn't help but doubt such a individualizing factor.
But, let me tell you, this is no hoax.

The high levels of Trans-Retinoic Acid--in the same family as retinoids--scoff like a chemical exfoliant. So much so that the exfoliating toner step in my evening routine is now null and void--and my skin isn't a happy camper if I add it back in.
So, it's safe to say that this oil is different; expensive, but noticeable. When was the last time your oil was exfoliating?
But with its scrubbing properties aside, it's also effective for the main reason I bought it: ridding of scars. The morning after I used this, I actually noticed a difference in my skin--more calmed and scars less visible. I only use this in the evenings--always following with a moisturizer.
Consider yourself warned: this stuff smells a little funky. But, as with most things, you get used to it--and the effects are worth the stunk.

I'm rather smitten with the likes of this exfoliating oil. Maybe I should listen to my dad's advice more often....

  2. Sounds amazing!

    I've been using the MooGoo Rosehip Oil and it's been good so far but I do find it a little bit greasy which rosehip oil usually isn't for me...

    I'll definitely give this product a go once I finish my MooGoo! :D

  8. That's the thing with natural beauty products... they smell a bit strange sometimes but they're so good that you end up not minding too much! I'd definitely like to try this. I don't use chemical exfoliants often but when I do, they leave my skin so soft :)

  9. I couldn't agree more regarding the smell, funky is definitely how I'd put it too. Though I do love it, it's one of my favourite oils (and I've got a bunch).

  14. If you do, please tell me how you like it. For me, chemical exfoliants are the way to go. I've tried out my Clarisonic a few times after I stopped using it regularly and things didn't go too well. xo
