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.

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.

Minimalist Salicylic + LHA 2% Face Cleanser review

Salicylic acid and Capryloyl salicylic acid (LHA) have been gaining popularity in the skincare industry for quite some time now. Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) which has keratolytic properties that helps in unclogging pores making it suitable for acne prone skin types. LHA on the other hand is a derivative of salicylic acid which has an added fatty chain to make it more lipophilic and gentle for exfoliation. In today's post I am sharing my experience with the newly launched M inimalist Salicylic Acid and LHA 2% face cleanser . If you have read my previous posts you must know that most of the minimalist products worked really well for me except for the PHA toner so I was pretty excited to use its face cleanser as well. The face wash is sulphate free and contains both BHA and LHA for gentle exfoliation of dead skin cell layers. Clogged pores can lead to the formation of non-inflammatory (blackheads, whiteheads) and inflammatory acne. Hence adding such chemical exfoliator

Minimalist Multi Peptide Serum Review

Peptides are made up of two or more amino acids which are the building block of proteins.  Collagen is naturally present in our body which is made up of polypeptides. As we grow older the collagen starts depleting which can result in presenting the signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. Adding a topical peptide serum or moisturiser in your daily skincare routine can delay these signs while promoting a healthy and youthful skin. Whenever you want to incorporate any topical peptide product in your skincare routine always invest in a good leave on product rather than wash off products. The reason behind it is that leave on products are there in contact with the skin for a longer period of time helping to show results more effectively. In today's post I am sharing my views on the Multi Peptide Serum by Minimalist . Minimalist is an Indian skincare and hair care brand that has come up with affordable serums and moisturisers with a good percentage of actives in them
