rosehip collection.

Rosehip Collection: INTENSIVE NOURISHING FACIAL
Bought at BeautyBay last year for 264.50SEK

Before I even had the chance to write a review on this it got discontinued only to appear just before the holidays again as a perfect Christmas present!
Also, fun thing: it took it about 4 weeks to get delivered, it got stuck at customs and opened, they probably thought the strange orange liquid could have been harmful ^^

Sadly, this has been the only product/s I've tested from Pai, I would love to test more but haven't come around to do that just yet. But the vibe I get from them is that it would be a perfect brand for mothers who wants a introduction to natural skincare. Their main focus is Sensitive skin, and I for once think everyone's skin should be handled with great caution, especially mature and even acne prone skin.

There's a lot of information about Rosehip Oil and acne, and even there I never came around to do a post on it, but I wrote it up as one of my "Blog-post Ideas" (oh and that list is long!).
I bought it because at the time I've heard that Rosehip would be the #1 oil to treat acne scars, but of course if you've done your research you would know there's a chance it may even make your acne even worse and cause more scarring. Some Rosehip oils say on the packaging that they're not suitable for acneic skin. So I approached the oil with great caution.
 
Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil 30ml
★★★★☆
All Skin Types
 
There was no second thoughts on which brand of oil I should buy, Pai's in my eyes were the most effective for they use both the common fruit seed oil but also the actual fruit extract! I haven't found another oil with both.
Rosehip oil has high levels of trans retinoic acid, in other words: vitamin A. Pai says it's supposed to supply the skin with vitamin a without causing irritation, but everyone's different. Luckily I handled it pretty well. But there's the thing with vitamin-a in the face, it' got the same effect as AHA's, it exfolliates the skin causing it to become more sensitive and dry in eccessive use. So I only applied it in the evening as a serum, and I would recommend SPF if going on a "treatmeant" like this.

Many who are not used to natural products would comment on the smell, for me it was indifferent, I actually almost liked the smell, especially of the Rosehip mask that I will come to. The funky coloring I would say to wait until the oil has settled in before going to lay down on white pillows... It may come off, but that's nothing that I had trouble with but have read in reviews.

I had the best effect with this one when combining it in my Divine Oil, 'cause then it became less drying on my skin. It hase come to it's last drops a few months ago and I can honestly say I kind of miss it and would definitely repurchase.
 
✔︎ Definitely saw some improvements in the complexion and especially when combining it with other oils.
✘ The clear glass bottle. And that I actually don't know if it had any affect on my acne scars, so I take the conclusion it actually did nothing.
 
INGREDIENTS: rosa canina (rosehip CO2) seed extract*, rosa canina (rosehip CO2) fruit extract*, mixed tocopherols (natural vitamin e)

Rosehip BioRegenerate Face Mask 50ml
★★★☆☆
All Skin Types

The mask you can't buy alone, it only comes in this special edition, which is a little sad. Now, my three stars actually indicates that I'm clueless on what to rate it. Yeah, even after a year... But to be fair it should say 3.5 Stars.
But I think it's got to do with the fact it's a limited edition, and for that I have used it sparingly - even though everything from Pai should be consumed withing six months... But I was really unsure it would actually come back, and what if I liked it?
 
I must comment on the smell of this one, it smells just like Play Dough! And almost looks like it! The consistency is a bit stiff, but soft enough to melt on the skin for easy application, but it's not like most masks you're used to.
The mask is supposed to deeply hydrate and condition the skin to leave it beautifully soft and supple. Does it do this? I'm still on the fence on the last two things (if you don't scrub beforehand it won't leave your skin soft), but it definitely is one of my most hydrating masks I have and my favorite!
 
✔︎ Very hydrating, smells good, has "Lactobacillus Ferment" which I think is a fun ingredient.
✘ Again, comes in clear glass, doesn't really have an effect on the skin that you would see immediately after taking it off.
 
INGREDIENTS: Aqua, Glycerin*, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter*, Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil*, Rosa Canina Seed Extract*, Ricinus Communis Seed Oil*, Prunus Domestica Seed Oil*, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Kaolin, Lactobacillus Ferment, Rosa Canina Fruit Extract*, Sodium Levulinate, Glyceryl Caprylate, Sodium Anisate, Lactic Acid, Tocopherol, Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Extract*
 
 
Pai Organic Muslin Cloth
★★☆☆☆
Personally: Not for sensitive skin
 
All I can say I've had better and softer. This one is a bit abrasive for my skin, and I wouldn't really recommend it to any having sensitive or acneic skin.
 
Made from 100% unbleached organic muslin cotton.
 
 
As of Christmas 2014 Pai has revamped the Rosehip Face Mask changing somewhat the ingredients. It's now called Rosehip BioRegenerate Rapid Radiance Mask and comes in a tube of 75ml.
The mask is still limited edition and is only available through purchasing the Rosehip Christmas Collection.
