Winter is coming... i love the versatility of a good plant oil. i use it for cleansing, for massage and in the winter it is the perfect protector against cold winter weather rose hip oil is perfect for this job, containing essential fatty acids and vits c and e to soften and hydrate the skin.
in july this @sukin rose hip oil was voted the best by the @evening.standard. i decided to give it a try and so far really impressed. this oil sinks into the skin really quickly and i am finding myself using it morning and night. also smells divine. this will definitely be on my christmas list.
