When it comes to skincare, I’m always on the lookout for products that will give me a natural glow with minimal effort.

Verdict: A’kin Pure Radiance Rosehip Oil – 5/5

I was very impressed by this A’kin Pure Radiance Rosehip Oil from the get-go. I now use it daily during both my morning & night beauty routine; I cleanse after removing my makeup wash my face and towel dry, and then apply 3-5 drops of this oil to my fingers, rub together and apply all over my face and neck, avoiding the immediate eye areas. Especially in the mornings, I immediately notice more colour on my face, a natural glow that’s created by the orange pigment in the oil – and I love this! I’ve found that over the years my natural tan has faded, and although my foundation would bring me back to my colour, on days I don’t wear makeup I feel rather pale. So this oil has been a gem for the au natural sans makeup days. I then go ahead with my day or night cream, (I’m currently using Ziaja Manuka Tree Purifying moisturisers), which when combined leaves me with such soft skin and still has that visible radiance coming through. I find the scent of the oil in the bottle is quite strong, but it doesn’t leave as strong a fragrance once applied to your skin. Applying the rosehip oil to my neck & décolleté has also helped to keep these areas moisturized throughout the day, as before; just using body cream didn’t do the trick. What I also really like about this product is how versatile it is; it is such a multi-tasker! I’ve used it to keep my nail & cuticles soft and strong, and have occasionally applied it to my hair, for a de-frizz finishing oil before styling. It’s even loved by Victoria’s Secret Angel Miranda Kerr and male supermodel David Gandy, who both boast the wonders of this rosehip oil. If you’re looking for the perfect radiance facial oil, Killer Fashion recommends this A’kin Rosehip Oil!
