I've tried applying the oil as an all over face oil, but I prefer to focus it just in certain areas of my face. Like I said, I have those two pesky fine lines on my forehead and also some redness and what I think are broken capillaries around my nose. Most nights, I put a single drop on the back of my hand and with clean fingers, just dab it onto those two spots. When I've applied the oil all over my face, it sinks in pretty quickly, but in focusing it on such small areas, the skin in those places ends up more saturated, so it takes longer to absorb. I've only been using it at night, so it's not an issue - I apply it before bed and it's completely absorbed by the time I wake up.
To me, the oil smells like a souped up, super strong cup of rosehip tea. That said, I've had three other people smell it and they all claim it smells kind of like chocolate. Personally, I don't smell chocolate at all, but there you have it.
In terms of results, I'm having a hard time judging if it's made a difference on my fine lines. They aren't terrible to begin with and I find they're more and less visible at different points in the day anyways, depending on how hydrated my skin is. Right after I wash my face, for instance, even before I apply any toner, oil, or moisturizer, they're barely noticeable, and then throughout the day, they become more visible as my skin gets a little drier and makeup starts to settle into them. If I had to guess, I'd say that yes, the lines have gotten smaller in the month I've been using Pai's rosehip oil, but it's hard to say for sure. I can say with a lot more certainty that the oil has definitely helped with the redness and broken capillaries around my nose. These are something I pay attention to concealing every day and I've definitely noticed there is a lot less to cover up since I've been using the BioRegenerate Oil.
The Bottom Line
Pai is a great brand that really seems to care about making effective products without compromising on ingredients. I love that their entire line is targeted specifically for sensitive skin and that the Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil is certified organic. I wish it had made a more dramatic difference with the lines on my forehead, but it's very possible they just need more time. The oil has definitely improved the redness and broken capillaries around my nose and I'm going to continue using it. I'll keep you all posted - hopefully I'll have more to report back on after using this product for longer!
