Uses for Rose Hip Oil/ La Bella Rose Hip Oil Review

Hello Everyone!

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by La Bella. All opinions are 100% my own.

I was recently contacted by La Bella to review a few products and one of the products included this Rose Hip Oil. I've never used rose hip oil until now, but I have heard many positive reviews about the benefits of using this oil. For today's post I'm going to share a few uses for rose hip oil. I want to thank La Bella for sending this product for me to review.

Since I was unfamiliar with rose hip oil in general, I researched a few sites that provided information about the product. I came across this article and I thought I would give a few of the suggestions on the list a try to write this post.

1. Brittle nails

Rosehip oil can nourish and hydrate your brittle nails, making them stronger and healthier. Just massage your nails every evening during one week with Rosehip oil before going to sleep and see the wonderful difference it makes.

2. Moisturizer

Rosehip oil has a high content of essential fatty acids and is a perfect skin hydration tool. Spray a little Rosehip oil mixed with water on your skin to rehydrate and lock in the moisture. This beauty trick is especially good for summertime!

My Thoughts

I thought using this oil for nails would be a good idea since I'm trying to grow my nails long again. I used this oil for the recommended week and I have noticed that my nails are less brittle and I can tell my nails are getting stronger. I've been massaging this oil onto my nails with a q-tip at night. If you're trying to strengthen your nails, I suggest giving this oil a try especially since its getting colder outside to keep them strong and healthy.

A healthy skincare routine is very important to me. Since I'm a fan of oil for keeping my skin moisturized and healthy I decided to give this a try. I did as instructed on the website and my skin felt so hydrated! I've also read that Rose Hip Oil was good for Eczema. I decided to use the oil on my elbows since those are the only trouble spots I have at times with Eczema. I noticed that this oil gave my skin a healthy glow after usage. My skin wasn't greasy after I used this on my skin and the oil didn't take very long to absorb on my skin. This is also a less is more type product since it's oil. A little goes a long way.

La Bella Rose Hip Oil has a light floral/fresh scent that isn't too overpowering. I don't really mind the scent which surprised me since I'm not really a fan of floral scents, but I found this oil's scent to be tolerable. I also like how this oil contains vitamin E which has great healing properties. I haven't seen this brand in stores, but you can buy this oil online in the links I provided in the About section of this post.

Have you tried Rose Hip Oil in your beauty and skincare routine(s)?

I've actually never heard of this stuff before!! I would love to try it on my nails. I just took my acrylics off and my nails are such a mess. That's good to know it works for eczema too, my hands get it bad in the winter!! Thanks for sharing Pilar!

I've used rosehip oil in my skincare before, but it has been a few months since I've thought about it. I've used it on my face with essential oils and on my body as an all-over moisturizer. It's great to use during the winter! Glad you could try it!

I have long read about rose hip oil being good for the skin but never tried them myself. Don't think I've seen this here though, will need to double check the next time I'm at the drugstore.

I've been hearing a lot about Rose Hip Oil but never knew the uses for it. So glad you broke it down Pilar :D

I guess I didn't know much about rose hip oil so thanks for all the information!! I want to try this out on some on my scars now!

Pilar said...

You're welcome! You should give this oil a try on your nails! I use coconut oil to help strengthen my nails, but this rose hip oil works well too! Even though the Eczema on my elbows isn't too bad, I was glad to see I can use it and the oil didn't irritate my elbows!

Pilar said...

I probably won't use the oil on my face since my skin has been fluctuating from normal to oily these last few months, but I like to use this oil as my skincare routine! I'm glad I was able to try this oil too!

Pilar said...

I'm unsure of which stores sell this oil in Canada. If you can'find this oil in the store, check or

Pilar said...

You're welcome! Since I started using this rose hip oil, I can see the benefits especially on my skin!

You're welcome!

Palmer's doesn't carry this brand. The company Coyne produces this brand, the same company that produces Palmer's products.

Pilar said...

Glad my review helped explained the uses for rose hip oil!

Pilar said...

You're welcome! This oil should work for scars since Vitamin E has healing properties!
