Rated 4.43 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review All of The Ordinary products I've used get 5 stars from me
I started using The Ordinary on October the 14th 2019 and these products are by far the best thing my face has enjoyed. This oil leaves my face, neck and hands sooo soft it is crazy. I'm a 42 year old, going on 43 and HAD acne scars on my cheeks. NOTHING helped when it came to getting rid of them. I have done several rounds of microneedling and not even that helped with my scars. It wasn't until I started using the glycolic acid, azelaic product, niacinamide and this oil that I've seen these scars fade. Its crazy!! Not even a month and not only am I seeing my skin soften, I also haven't seen any acne anymore. Everything broke me out. It got to the point where I started making my own face wash. If I could post before and after pics I would. I actually took such pics to see for myself what the hype was all about and believe me it is noticeable. I rarely go out without makeup, because my face also had uneven tones, but now I feel confident enough to do so. Then the last time I used makeup I got compliments from all of my friends. My 14 year old said my makeup was POPPIN'!!! What? A compliment from a teenager? If anyone needs pics to see the difference for yourself just say so, I will be more than happy to provide the proof. Thanks Deciem, you guys have changed my life. A womans skin is everything and you boosted my self-esteem like you could not believe with the change your products did to mine.
Most Helpful Critical Review I don't know if I was sent a bad product or not
I use the rose hip oil at bedtime. My skin loves rose hip oil and it actually keeps me from breaking out. I was using the elemis rose and collagen oil but it is too pricey for me to buy again so I decided to buy this one by the ordinary because I've heard good things about the entire brand. First of all, the consistency of this oil is thicker than other ones I've used. It's a lot more oily in fact, but it tends to absorb into the skin after about a minute or two. Next, the smell is god awful. It smells very fishy, which caught me off guard. It's like a fishy seaweed sort of smell and nothing like rose, so I wonder if I got a bad product. However, after about a week of use I do think it has made my skin soft. I haven't had any breakouts using it but I don't see anything magical yet either. I will try to keep using it if i can get used to the smell.

Use this product as another skin moisturizer. I'm 53 and love this product. Feels great on my skin
Holy Grail Moisturizer
Lauren from Queens, NY
I have repurchased this oil 3 times. It's moisturizing and soothing for my dry, sensitive skin but I am also acne-prone and this does not break me out. It absorbs nicely and gives me a healthy glow. I have found it has helped even out my skin tone and lighten some acne scars as well. Highly recommend giving this a try - it's wonderful!
Best stuff ever
Jenmomo from New Jersey
I love this oil. I use it at night in my face, lips and chest area. I have noticed a big difference. Especially in the chest area where I always get sunburnt no matter how much spf I use. Skin is noticeably healthier.
Love this oil
Penny from Cali
I absolutely love this Rose hip seed oil, it is very hydrating and soaks into the skin very quickly without leaving you greasy. Even though it's an oil it never clogged my pores or gave me breakouts
Ems from Charlotte NC
I use this product in the night and morning to give my face extra moisture since I have really dry acne prone skin. A little goes a long way I just use 5-6 drops for my whole face. Product smells a little gross but that might just be me. Overall I'd definitely try it if u are looking for an affordable face serum.
V from US
This is my 3rd time buying this product. I love the way it makes my skin glow ! Spreads easily and it doesn't take much to use, so it lasts a long time. I have combination skin. I do have to apply more sometimes because my face will get dry, but I think that could partially be due to the other products I use.

Ok. I love this product, but not on my face. It is a little too much for me personally. BUT, I use this in my hair and am absolutely obsessed with it. I have 2b/2c hair and put a few drops in my hair after I blow it out. Works wonders
Dre Dre from Durham, nc
Best product for my skin. I use it mornjng and evening over my dermatologist prescribed acne medication. Does not cause breakouts and helps even my skin
Light weight, great smell
AJ from Chicago
I wash, tone, and then use this as a moisturizer and it gives my skin a nice glow. I've used other brands of rise hips oil but I found this brand to be the best. Other brands are heavier, greasier, and smell a bit too "earthy". Ordinary is lighter weight and smells great. I also love that the fluid ounce is just the right size for travel.
Weird smell but hydrating
Sunaina from Cali
It smells like fish but my skin looks good :/
Added moisture back to my skin
Boymom from Atlanta, GA
I typically use this product at night after cleansing, witch hazel, and aloe facial spray. Sometimes I apply face cream after. Before using this product I had dry patches and tight skin immediately after washing my face and I don't have those problems anymore. I'm happy with the product and as long as it performs I will continue to use it
Just added this to my routine
Belissana from Sacramento
So my whole 29 years of life I've never really been one for a face routine, (that I probably should have been doing back in like middle school or something), but I started one up 2 years ago and it's been trial and error. Now I've only been using this for 2 days and don't know really how this oil is supposed to work aside from putting it on my face and rubbing it in. I've used a lot of exfoliaters and man I have never seen so much dead skin come off me. Pretty unsure if it's meant to do that but I'm not complaining and I like the now very soft, untextured feel of my face so it's great in my book!
AMZING FOR STRETCH MARKS
Kay from Clute, Texas
Wow, I bought this because of Hyram and I'm in love! I use this oil for my face with my Gua Sha and it does it's job! I also heard that it's good for stretch marks so I've been applying the oil and wow in just a week there's a noticiable difference. I never wash the oil off my hands as it's also great for healthy hair, so after I apply it to my face I also apply the rest to my hair!
Helps dry skin
Steph from West Covina
Help my skin so much due to weather change my skin gets really dry during the summer and winter and this helps lock in oil
Can be multi-use, not just for face!
Jm from California
Sometimes I like to put this on my hair after I shower (while my hair is wet) and it leaves it soft and shiny! Skincare-wise the rosehip oil is amazing! It does take some time to sink in, but I don't mind since I also use this to massage my face. I use this during my night routine and next morning my face is soft and hydrated
Natashalicious from Carmel, CA
I use this oil before bed as it's oily but it works wonders on my combination 61 year old skin. Love it!
My favorite product
SBC from La
Great product for super dry skin. I use it twice a day under moisturizer. My skin absolutely glows!
Love The Ordinary but this one not so much
KelBel from Massachusetts
I love the ordinary products and use many of them with only good things to say, however this product pills and that is such a negative for me. Maybe alone it would be fine but I used it at night after cleansing with my hylauronic and argireline serums. It also causes my moisturizer (different brand) to pill off me and is very wasteful - this moisturizer does not pill by itself or along with the other serums I mentioned, only this one.

Mary from Savannah, GA
This oil is exceptional. My skin feels so deeply hydrated. It takes about 10min to soak in but when it's done, my skin feels so soft and smooth. Highly recommend!!

Favorite new product!
Miranda O. from Maupin, Or
I struggle with dry skin and this product is a game changer! I put in on morning and night and my face is so soft and hydrated. I think I finally found my solution and I love that it's also inexpensive.
Chey from Wa
Amazing product, evened out my red and irritated skin!
Happy Mom from La Quinta, Ca
I bought this for my evening skincare routine - and it left my 40 year old skin moisturized, soft, and pretty.
I was not expecting it to help clear up my 17 year old son's skin problems. My son has combo skin, and his T zone would break out and have congestion. Dry patches would show up on his cheeks, especially after shaving. He'd been using some super pricy product meant to clear up the t-zone, and it worked temporarily. I finally had him lay off that product and just continue washing his face in the am and pm with a gentle cleanser & I had him try using the Rose Hip oil in the evening after face washing and within a few days, his skin tone was evening out, the t-zone cleared dramatically, and the overall appearance was brighter, even, and healthy. He hasn't had a problem since, and I credit this oil. We LOVE this stuff!

Best Oil from So Cali
This oil is amazing and doesn't cause breakouts. Almost finished my first bottle and I will be repurchasing. You don't need a whole lot for you face for it to give you moisture. I use the on my face, neck and chest. It's great!
