I was given product in exchange for an honest review.
Every winter, we at the Bellesouth household are plagued with horrible, flaky, dry skin. It’s awful, and no one is safe. Me, mom and the dog. We all start itching like crazy, scratching like crazy, and being driven crazy. Add my mom’s need to limit liquids as a dialysis patient, as well as her recent bout with digestive troubles, and it only gets worse!
But enter Majestic Pure Rosehip Oil. It comes in a whopping 4-oz bottle, and is absolutely AMAZING for treating that winter dryness. My first use of it was when I saw my poor mom using her bathrobe to scratch her back a few weeks ago. I first started scratching her back with my fingernails, then I realized I could be doing more harm than good; as scratching can lead to bloodletting.
So I went and grabbed this Rosehip Oil, put a few drops on her back and rubbed it in. Mom, who already takes prescription drugs for her itching, said it was extremely soothing, and that it really helped her itchy skin. Winter + Diabetes + Renal Disease just makes for misery, and this stuff is great. I also used it on her very dry elbows!
As for me, I have started using it on my nails, since I haven’t been able to get my nails done in several weeks. In spite of all the dishwashing, can opening and typing I’ve done, my nails have stayed pretty strong. I’m not sure if the oil has helped it, but they definitely don’t get soft after a bath anymore!
One thing I would really love to try is using rosehip oil as a scalp treatment. I’ve read that it works wonders for dry scalp (another condition mom and I suffer during the winter), and all you have to do is let it sit in your hair for 30 minutes before rinsing it out. Have any of you tried this?
Major Rosehip Oil turnoff: The smell. There’s just something… off about the scent. I was expecting it to smell like roses since, hey, rosehip – but, naah. The good thing is that Rosehip is used as a carrier oil, so you can mix it with your favorite scented essential oils to make something that softens your skin and smells good!!
