Quite the Multitasker: Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil

Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil full review

Being quite a fan of dry oil, I know that theoretically all variations can be used for multiple purposes. However, for different reasons (some of them are more for the body, some of them are too pricey for me to use anywhere else…), I have only recently discovered the first dry oil that I do use everywhere: Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil (it goes for around 25 euros)!

Pai Rosehip oil ingredients

If you read the ingredient list of Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil, you’ll realize it’s really not much of a “list.” The blissfully simple ingredients are nothing more than rosehip fruit and seed oil blend and natural vitamin E. Unless your skin doesn’t take rosehip oil too well, I would say it is a safe product for most. The Pai website gives some more technical details about why this is a very potent version. I don’t know too much about rosehip oil in general, but I did hear that the darker the color is, the more nutrition has been preserved. The Pai version is a lovely deep orange!

Pai Rosehip oil

Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil smells earthy and a little sour. If you have had rosehip in an infusion, you will probably recognize the smell. The packaging is solid, and the droplet functions well. There is nothing I would nitpick about it!

Pai Rosehip oil dropper

I have been using Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil in several different ways for the past 3 and a half months. First of all, I use it all over my face at nighttime. Rosehip oil contains retinol, which is often found in anti-aging products. The natural form found in rosehip oil keeps the skin moisturized and smooth without the irritation. When it was very cold, I would layer a moisturizer on top. Nowadays however, most of the time I am fine with the oil on its own.

Second of all, remember how I always complain about my dry hands? I don’t know what took me so long, but one day something finally hit me: if my skin loves dry oil in general, why not layer dry oil underneath a hand cream? That was my best skincare Eureka moment ever! Nowadays I try to use Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil at least a couple of times a day before my hand cream. Oil is absorbed more easily when there is a bit of humidity on the skin, so I usually use it on hands that have only been roughly patted dry with a towel. It has really helped! My hands are so much softer with the rosehip oil, and it doesn’t feel “greasy” at all so I can continue with whatever I’m doing in no time.

I also use this on towel-dried hair nowadays, concentrating on the ends. I don’t skip my regular leave-in conditioner, but I find that a bit of oil beforehand does the job a little better as well as allowing hair to dry faster. I reckon being able to shorten the amount of time it takes to blow hair dry definitely keeps it healthier!

Last but not least, I have used the oil all over my body before lotion a couple of times. I am normally fine with a lotion alone, but again we have seen some pretty drastic weather here this year, and for about a week even the skin on my body was acting up. I used Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil on my body right after I got out of the shower, and it really did calm my skin down. Phew.

Pai Rosehip oil box

Bottom line: Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil packs simple yet potent ingredients in the bottle. It is only good for 6 months after it has been opened, but the reasonable price and multi-tasking capacity make it the only dry oil I have ever used for so many different purposes to this day. For those of you who are hunting for a solid dry oil for everyday use, take a look at Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil. You won’t be disappointed!

Have you tried Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil or any other rosehip oil? Does your skin like it? Also, talking about Pai, I am on my third bottle of Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser. Now that’s loyalty!

    It sounds lovely! AND good tip on using it underneath a hand cream. Must try that on my dry Winter hands.

    • Sunny

      Yes it’s a simple trick that works well! I hope your hands will be less dry soon!

  • http://beautiesatwork.wordpress.com/ beauties

    looks good :)

    • Sunny

      Yup give it a go! The price is great for such a fabulous product!

  • http://redhotjillypeppers.com Redhotjillypeppers

    That sounds like a lovely product ! My skin is soooo dry after all these months of cold weather.

    • Sunny

      Hey Jill, try this! It has seen me through winter, and I definitely need it in spring as well. My skin tends to get wacky between winter and spring!

  • http://eyeheartit.blogspot.com Larie

    OOOH, duh, Larie. That’s a great idea, Sunny – I’m going to use my Weleda almond oil on my hands at night. They get really dry and cracked and peely in the winter, and that is a fabulous idea.

    • Sunny

      Yes, try that! I don’t know how I went SO long without trying oil on my hands. I’ve been such a fan!

  • http://beautyreductionista.blogspot.ca/ Liz

    I heard amazing things about this! Great tips on how to get the most out of it. Definitely on my list of products to try. :)

    • Sunny

      Hey Liz, I hope you’ll try it and like it! A lot of oils I’ve tried are simply too pricey to be used anywhere else, and some contain too much fragrance for me to want to use on my face. This one is just a happy medium!

  • http://mylucitedreams.com Taylor

    I love a good oil, this sounds so lovely! I ordered a sample of this around Christmas, and I havnt had a chance to use it… Yet.

    • Sunny

      Hey Taylor, haha you’ve been hauling skincare eh? You should give it a try once you get some of the stuff out of your way. I can’t wait to hear if you like it!

  • http://www.beauty-reflections.com Tracy@Beauty Reflections

    I’ve tried this and LOVED it too! I think it’s amazing!

    • Sunny

      Hey Tracy, I remember reading about it on Beauty Reflections! It’s pure quality. No filler no fuss!

  • http://buyingcrueltyfree.com Catherine (@bcrueltyfree)

    I’ve just recently gotten into dry oils and am becoming completely obsessed. I haven’t tried this line but I think I have seen it on a few other blogs, too. Definitely one to look into :)

    • Sunny

      YAAAY glad to hear you’re a dry oil convert! You should definitely try Pai! I love everything they make and the brand is cruelty-free!

  • http://aucupariabrumalis.wordpress.com Claire

    I LOVE this oil! I think it is very important to know why ‘this’ oil and not another, a lot of other rosehip oils aren’t even ‘real’ rosehip oils, I am glad the website is explaining it so well! My skin feels so good. I never thought of using it on my hands, have to try this, thank’s for the tip 😀

    • Sunny

      Hey Claire, I’m SO glad to hear you’re also a fan! I haven’t tried other rosehip oils, but I have total trust in Pai so I’ll just say it’s my favorite rosehip oil so far :) And yes, try it on your hands! Mine are in better shape nowadays for sure!

  • http://mirror-reality.com/ Philippe

    You caved just like I knew you would 😉
    Welcome to the Painuts

    • Sunny

      It’s a dry oil so of course I caved! I need to slow down collecting dry oils, though I think this bottle will go rather fast because I use it on my hands a couple of times a day :)

  • http://protectingpaws.blogspot.com Sharleena

    This sounds wonderful! I’m a big fan of rosehip oils and am always looking for more to try!

    Seems as though this one does everything!

    • Sunny

      Hey Sharleena, if you do give it a go keep me posted! This one really does everything! I have tried many dry oils, but so far this is the only one I’d use everywhere!

  • http://myhighestselfblog.com/ Tina @ My Highest Self

    Ooo, I would love to try this thanks for the great review!

    • Sunny

      Hey Tina, I think you’ll like it! Pai products are quality for money, but this one is definitely not on the pricey end!

  • http://www.valleydollbeautyblog.blogspot.com ValleyDoll

    Hmm this sounds really great ! I love using oils these days !

    • Sunny

      Oh same here! I use oil all year round!

  • Leila

    Oh this sounds very nice! I’ve been looking for a rosehip oil for a while and although I’ve heard of the trilogy one, it’s nice to know there’s another good option out there.

    This winter, I’ve been using extra virgin olive oil on my hands at night. After a little while it absorbs nicely, no residue and it’s helped more than using hand cream alone (I don’t bother with the hand cream at night). I used to also use it on my face and it’s fine. Never feels greasy once it’s absorbed. The olive oil is nice for my nails and cuticles too. Oh yeah, I’ve decanted the oil into a small pump bottle (those ones you buy for travel) so no risk of spillage.

    • Sunny

      Hey Leila, if you do give this one a try I hope you’ll like it! I do use olive oil in my hair, and most of the time I just massage the residue in. Haven’t tried it on my face though! My skin might not be dry enough to warrant it!

  • http://procrastinatingpretty.blogspot.com Procrastinator

    YAY for Pai! I am so in love with this line, but I’m running out of everything really quickly! Not so much this oil (thank goodness), but the cleanser is disappearing on me realllllly fast!

    • Sunny

      Oh I’m on my third bottle of cleanser already (the first two are 50ml ones though)! I just haven’t found anything quite as nice. I do like cleansing balms but I don’t always have the time or patience to use them at night. The Pai one is a happy medium!

  • Selena

    I use this oil together with the Pai body cream on my legs. I don’t have any dry patches anymore. :)

    • Sunny

      Hey Selena, I’m so glad to hear it works well for you! I haven’t tried the Pai body cream yet but I’m curious now!

  • http://www.beauty-box-online.com Beauty Box

    I’m impressed with this multitasker of a product. I am dying to try Pai products as I’ve read many good things about the brand but it’s not available in Japan where I live. I should look into whether they ship to Asia. I love that oils last forever and you don’t need a whole lot to make it work. I tend to mix oils with lotions in cold, dry weather too.

    • Sunny

      Hey Yu Ming, you can find Pai on some sites that ship all over the world for free (Beautybay, Naturissimo…), so good luck laying your hands on some Pai! I’ve heard rosehip oil could start smelling funny, so I want to finish the bottle as soon as I can. Otherwise it’s true that oil lasts a LONG time!

  • http://willworkformakeup.blogspot.com/ Tiffany

    Wow, your third bottle of the cleanser?? I don’t blame you though; it’s amazing stuff. This oil sounds really nice! I’m afraid this particular one would break me out though because of the rosehip, but I really want to find a good facial oil to start using at night!

    • Sunny

      Yup! The first two are 50ml bottles, but still. I like it enough to have repurchased twice! I hope you’ll soon find a facial oil that won’t break you out. Oils are the best!

  • Elaine Licciardello

    just opened my bottle tonight and man it smells funky… feels lovely on my skin but the smell is too strong, like some kinda herby medicine. ohh man and it lingers as well… yuk! but it does feel nice i hope i can continue using it. Does the scent bother u sunny?

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Elaine, aww I’m sorry to hear that you don’t like the scent! The scent doesn’t bother me at all. I am so relieved to know it has no added fragrance that I’ll live with the way rosehip oil actually smells!

      • Elaine Licciardello

        U know what sunny… I will deal with it cuz it feels lovely on the skin I actually mixed it with my kiehls midnight recovery so now it’s ok!

        • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

          That’s a great idea, Elaine! Midnight Recovery smells pretty good!
