This is my new HOLY GRAIL NIGHTTIME product. I use it during the day under sunscreen and a bit of powder, but I LOVE to use it at night. I slather a whole pump (or more) over freshly cleansed skin before sleeping and I wake up to the softest, smoothest skin. I put a few extra drops under my eyes and on the dry patches on my face, and wake up with perfectly smooth skin. I even put some on my décolletage since the skin there is so sensitive. My skin tone is more even, and my eye bags are lighter. I put some on my under eyes and let it sink in before I put on concealer, and it has eliminated the fine lines I used to have. My friends comment on how clear and fresh and bright my skin looks. I also recently started using it on my curls after I put in my curl creme, and it makes my hair soooooo soft. Insanely soft! I suggest using when your hair is a bit wet, as I think that produces the best result. I love this stuff because I know I can trust it - it's not blended with anything. It's USDA organic-certified, and it's vegan and cruelty-free!about 2 months ago
I am using a mixture of this, Argan oil and Pomegranate seed oil, both from Lumiere too, as a night-time moisturizer for a month now and so far, so good. My acne scars are fading and my face feels soft when I wake up even after washing. The oils gets fully absorbed by the skin provided that you only use a few drops - using too much is a waste and will make your face oily but this did not break me out so it's fine. The only gripe that I have is that the pump doesn't work smoothly so it spews out the oil and you'll end up dispensing more.2 months ago
After a month of use, I noticed how my scars lighten and my dry patches heal faster. I get cystic acne/s when it is my time of the month. This oil does not promise overnight pimple-clearing miracle, but it shortens the shelf life of these pimples and helps prevent acne marks. I use this twice a day. I mix this with my day moisturizer/sunblock in the morning. In the nighttime, I apply this on my face after using my witch hazel toner. My dull skin looks more alive. I can fake the look of having 7 hours of sleep. I just hope this one comes in a dropper bottle as well. The pump bottle makes it hard to manipulate the amount of oil. This is a great addition to my "clean and green" skincare routine.9 months ago
I've been using this Rosehip oil for nearly a month and I can definitely see a huge improvement with my bare face especially in pictures. My face looks more glowy and the dry patches I use to have around my mouth have all disappeared. Its also great in keeping my under eye area moisturized especially when applied before makeup. While my dark eye circles seem to need something more potent, my pimple scars seem to be slowly fading. Overall, this is a lifesaver and I feel I'm getting my money's worth as its very versatile in terms of usage10 months ago
I decided to get rosehip oil because I learned that it helps with acne scars and hyperpigmentation (thanks, Liah Yoo!). This one from Lumiere did not disappoint! I put two drops on my hand and pat it on my face as a moisturizer at night, and I wake up with smooth and supple skin in the morning! If you're worried about putting oil on your oily face, don't! This one suits oily skin very well and sinks into the skin like a dream. I highly recommend this to everyone who needs to give their skin some lovin'.10 months ago
I’ve been using this for 2 months now— and that’s saying something. My maximum time limit and tolerance to wait for product effectiveness is two weeks, if I don’t see improvement based on what the product claims, then it’s adios. 1 drop of it with a drop Organic Cold-Pressed Argan Oil is sufficient for my face and neck leaving it silky smooth with dewy finish.
I used to apply this every night only (after putting toner, and vitamin C serum) thinking it’s a bad idea to put oil on my oily face in a hot, dusty place like Manila with a busy morning work routine but one holiday I used it at daytime when I unexpectedly had to go out and ran an errand. Surprise, surprise! My face was fresh and oil free all day. Plus, it works well with make up. So, it’s now part of my day and night skin care regimen.
