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)!
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 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!
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.
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!
