Minimalist Rosehip Oil + VC IP-3% Review

When it comes to facial oil Rosehip oil has gained popularity for many years. A good quality cold-pressed rosehip oil has been used in improving the elasticity of the skin, strengthening the skin barrier, reducing fine lines and wrinkles as well as healing the skin.

Rosehip oil contains various essential fatty acids and unsaturated acids such as linoleic acid, linolenic acid and oleic acid. These help in strengthening the lipid barrier of the skin making it stronger and firmer. It is also rich in components like vitamin C and vitamin A which makes it a potent antioxidant for reducing free radical damage on the skin and reducing hyperpigmentation.

In today's post I am sharing my experience minimalist Rosehip oil and+ VC IP- 3%

Coming to the product details-

What does the product say ?

The combination of cold pressed rosehip oil and vitamin C; Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate (3%) works well in reducing hyperpigmentation, even out skin tone, repairs skin barrier and reduces stress induced damage to the skin.

Their VC-IP is a fat soluble vitamin C derivative which is developed by Nikkol, Japan.

The product is suitable for all skin types and is non-comedogenic.


Rosa Canina (Cold Pressed Rosehip) Seed Oil, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate (3%)

Price- 649 INR

Quantity- 30 ml


The product comes in a dark colored bottle with a dropper.

Texture and consistency-

As the name suggests it is a yellow colored facial oil but feels really lightweight on the skin.


Take 2-3 drops of the product and apply it on your whole face and neck as the last step of your skincare routine. Use the product at night. Suitable for all skin types.

My experience with the product-

I am not a big facial oil person but I have read many articles which state that application of rosehip oil can help you in repairing damaged skin barrier and reduces the appearance of scars while improving the texture of the skin. 

This product contains vitamin C in the form of Ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate which is oil soluble in nature. It helps in better penetration of the active ingredient into the skin which helps in effectively reducing the pigmentation and prevents stress damage which can lead to early signs of aging. 

This product acts as an occlusive and helps in preventing trans-epidermal water loss providing optimum hydration and nourishment to the skin.

The brand has mentioned that the oil has to be applied during PM as the last step of your skincare routine.

I started including this facial oil 2-3 times a week on days when I was not using any AHA or Tretinoin. I try to avoid layering too many actives together in a single routine. 

Vitamin C derivatives are highly compatible with hyaluronic acid as it helps in better absorption and promotes collagen synthesis giving a youthful appearance to the skin. 

I was quite skeptical while using this product as I was worried it might clog my pores. The good thing is it didn't. You only need 2-3 drops of this product for the whole face and neck. Gently massage your skin with it and dab till absorbed nicely into the skin. During application it gives a warmth sensation to the skin. The oil is not well heavy on the skin and it doesn't leave a sticky feel behind.

This product provides a smoother and healthier complexion the next day. I have a combination acne prone skin but I didn't experience any clogging of pores or breakouts after using this product. This oil is best suited to me on days when my skin is feeling dull or stretchy due to the actives which I use for reducing hyperpigmentation.


  • Good ingredient list.

  • Comes with a dropper.

  • A little product goes a long way.

  • Fragrance free.

  • Silicone free.

  • Helps in giving a nice glow to the skin.

  • Strengthens the skin barrier.

  • Did Not clog my pores.

  • Helps in moisturising my skin nicely.

  • Easily available.

  • Affordable.


  • None for me.

Will I recommend it?

Yes! If you like to use facial oils on your skin as a leave-on product or for doing massage this is a good one which can be given a try. 

Note- Always do a patch test before trying out any new product. For some people using facial oils can be comedogenic. Skincare is subjective hence choose wisely.

Hope you found the post helpful.

Parachute Advansed Ayurvedic Hair Oil Review

In today’s post I am reviewing Parachute Advansed Ayurvedic Hair Oil. I’ve been oiling my hair since childhood. When I was younger my mother used to oil my hair on a weekly basis and I did have beautiful hair that time. In the past few years because of a lot of chemical treatments such as rebonding, coloring etc made my hair really dry, frizzy, brittle and unmanageable. Since one year I am again more focused on the traditional ways of adding nutrients to my hair in the form of oil treatments to add an extra nourishment to my scalp for getting long healthy hair. This is for a fact that I've received so many compliments in the past few months that my hair has beautifully grown.  For oiling I always love a good concoction of oils which helps in strengthening the hair from within. The main carrier oil which I use to add any essential oil has been parachute coconut oil for a very long time. Parachute is a brand which is not unknown among the Indian population. Their original

Dot & Key Hyaluronic Acid Serum Concentrate Review

Hyaluronic acid serums have been popular in the skincare industry for quite a few years now. Indian skincare brands have been including various hyaluronic acid serum in their range too. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occuring glycosaminoglycan which is present throughout the body. It can hold upto 1000 times the weight in water. It helps in plumping the skin, restoring hydration and moisturisation to the skin and also helps in plumping it up.   When used topically along with a good emollient cream on top it helps in sucking in the moisture from the cream and also prevents transepidermal water loss. Harsh environmental factors such as sun damage, oxidative stress can lead to depletion of hyaluronic acid levels in the skin leading to a dry dehydrated skin. Adding a topical hyaluronic acid serum helps in replenishing the lost moisture and promotes a healthy skin barrier. Coming to the Dot and Key Hyaluronic acid serum concentrate. Ingredients- Purified Water, Dimethicone, Dime
