  • I started using Rosehip oil when my neck developed some lines ( assuming age related ) and after a couple of weeks it is smooth and softened the lines well. I am going to start using this when winter starts under my night cream as cold weather makes my skin even drier . At the moment I am using Trilogy which is very potent and will use it on my face at neck in the evenings. If it is extremely dry maybe use it in the morning too . Maybe got to C/Warehouse or online and see if there are dry creams you would like to try . The clinical ones such as QV and Dermaveen are a bit dearer but they are specifically catered for sensitive skins as well . Good luck .



  • Have a look over at http://www.nutrimetics.com.au/tracybaker friend swears by the restore range



  • Why does it have to be an oil? There are many creams out there that can do the same thing and have other propeties in them. Maybe google for some ideas and see if you can get some samples to try.



  • rosehip oil is good and you only use a tiny amount



  • I actually used to put loads of aloe vera gel onto my face before bed. It would all absorb in at night and helped with acne too!



  • A good organic Rosehip Oil like Sukin is worth its weight in gold. Also, using a quality organic skincare regime will help enormously. Since I found Rubifresh skincare products, my skin’s never looked so good. Rubifresh are based in Australia, and they’re organic. Contact Tristan (the owner) and ask if she’ll send you some samples, which she will probably be very happy to do. I’d be very surprised if their products don’t suit your skin.



  • there are some good comments here



  • Definitely agree with most other answers on here, Rosehip OIl is fantastic and it’s an oil that you can get relatively cheap too! Just make sure that the brand you buy is 100% rosehip oil. A few drops on damp skin either instead of or under moisturiser is all you need.



  • Rose hip oil is fantastic. You can purchase at most chemists and healthfood shops. It’s naturally very high in vitiman c which supports collagen and elastin in the skin. It’s also used to lighten pigmentation



  • Pop a vitamin e capsule and use it as a night face mask. Full of antioxidants and so hydrating for the skin. Rose hip oil or bio oil are other night time alternatives. A good serum underneath a moisturiser during the day may help as well.



  • I use pawpaw ointment at night if fabulous my skin has never looked or felt better – too greasy for day wear unless home.



  • A friend of mine highly recommends an organic rose oil.



  • does it have to be an oil? there are a lot of good gel products like elixia if you can’t use creams



  • I recommed rosehip oil or dermalogica.



  • My European friends swear by Olive Oil!
