I didn't want to try retin a on my sensitive skin, but I did a little google and found that baking soda mixed with a little water works to clear blackheads so I tried it on my nose and it really does work. Minimal irritation on my super sensitive skin and it felt so clean afterwards. I read if you do it once or twice a week it helps.
Re: Rosehip Oil. I find it soaks in best when mixed with a little light moisturiser. I think it has made my dark circles a teensy bit lighter so far (they're caused by not enough fat under the eye are and thin skin so you can see the dark muscle underneath) - it seems to have thickened the skin a teensy bit. It has also made my nasiolabial lines (from nose to mouth) disappear pretty much Anyway, my main reason for posting here again was to tell everyone it use it on their eyelashes at night! I've been doing this and my eyelashes (which are naturally dark and quite long) are definitely longer than before and are so well conditioned and soft. It probably just makes them fall out less but they look quite a bit longer so I'm happy
The Rosehip Oil hasn't cleared up my light discolouration as much as I had hoped, but I think in combo with a few other things it will. I have good skin, never get blemishes, etc but some days it appears nice and fair and I don't need foundation but other days it is kinda blotchy like the discoloration in my lower face is visible, it's not bad but not glowing and clear. I really want to have a more even tone so am still trying to find a good routine.
Scrubbing with sugar and olive oil once a week leaves your skin beautiful! Rub it on gently, wash off, then cleanse to remove excess and pat dry. I'm going to try getting into a better routine with this scrub and baking soda on the nose once a week and I'll keep using my rosehip oil every night and report back!
