I wish I knew in my 20’s to slather on all the oils but I was busy trying to get rid of it. Now a decade and a half later, I feel like I’m drying out faster than a banana in a dehydrator. I’m always jealous of friends who “claim” to be slicker than butter on warm toast as they always look fresh and dewy. Their skin is also plump and moist in the best way.
Enter Foxbrim. To be honest, their name simply sounded so cool and that’s what made me do a Google search. I had no idea they sold oils or skincare items. I was more like,”Oooo, foxes are so cute! Hanging out a brim..on the brim of a cup? Do they sell coffee?!” I was pleasantly excited to see they carried all the oils and decided to prime myself a bottle of rosehip oil.
What is Foxbrim? I love how simple they are. No frills, no thrills and it comes down to their mission statement which is simply:
we source premium all-natural and organic ingredients and craft them into scientifically proven products.
When a company uses the term “scientifically proven”, I scrutinize and wait even longer to form a conclusion because I immediately have extra stringent standards. I expect results, not necessarily immediate within 24 hours, but they need to be significantly noticeable. Furthermore, they offer something not many companies do which is a 100% lifetime satisfaction guarantee or your money back with free return shipping. WHOA.
What are the ingredients? 100% Pure Certified Organic Rosehip Seed Oil
PRODUCT: Organic Rosehip Seed Oil. Made in USA. Net wt. 2.0 oz./ 60ml. $16.95 (Amazon)/ $24.95 (Foxbrim).
PACKAGING: Beautiful amber glass bottle with a dropper with a very nice, clean orange fox logo and clear black font.
SCENT: I had no idea what rosehip oil would smell like but it is so deliciously unique. It’s not super rose scented, but rather nutty, earthy, and sometimes, I think it has a coffee aroma to it also.
FIRST DROP FROM THE BOTTLE: This gorgeous orange color is indicative of the oil’s freshness and that it has been relatively unrefined. Foxbrim states that they use a cold press method which is using low temperatures to extract oils to maintain its nutritional value, aroma, and taste. It is similar in viscosity to coffee bean oil or maracuja oil. But, if you’re not familiar with those oils, it is definitely not as thick as argan oil or olive oil but similar to sesame seed oil (yes, like the kind you cook with).
APPLICATION: Rosehip oil glides on effortlessly and sinks into the skin quit quickly. I love the viscosity of this oil because it’s not so thick that just hangs out on the surface on your skin but not so light that it feels like water.
EFFICACY: Rosehip oil has many attributes and benefits. Foxbrim claims that rosehip oil can be used to:
*hydrate – check!
*repair damaged skin – check!
*reduce appearance of scars – check!
*reduce dark/age spots – check!
*reduce fine lines – check!
*brightens skin – check!
*encourages healthy cell production – unable to determine this.
*leaves skin feeling softer and smoother to the touch – check!
Basically, using this product should transform your skin in a positive and significant manner. I absolutely believe this product is highly efficacious on all levels of what they claim. Though I cannot determine if I’ve created healthier skin cells, I think the outward appearance of my skin could possibly lend itself to evidence of this. I don’t look 16, but my skin has responded very well to rosehip oil.
IS IT WORTH SHARING OVER COFEE?: YES, I’ll even GIVE you a bottle if I had an extra! THIS IS THE ELIXIR OF YOUTH!!!! What took me so long to even learn about this oil?! My skin feels good, it’s bouncy, and on a good day with good lighting and a good IG filter, it even LOOKS rather acceptable bare! I can apply it upstairs and by the time I walk downstairs (just minutes later), it serves as the perfect base for me to apply my foundation. It keeps my skin hydrated and comfortable all day and does not make me look uncontrollably shiny/greasy. I welcome the dewy look and some may not like it as they prefer the matte look. Brushing over a little powder on top generally cures the dewiness right away. I also feel that my complexion seems brighter, healthier, and more refreshed even though I haven’t changed my lifestyle (read: still not enough sleep) or diet (read: not enough donuts). I even slather this on my children’s skin when they are getting little dry patches and they clear up overnight. If you are looking for rosehip oil, I HIGHLY recommend purchasing from Foxbrim- the quality, quantity, and price are unparalleled.
Side story: My husband was cleaning the bathroom and knocked over the entire bottle of rosehip oil. I fell to my knees and just looked at my youth splattered all over the floor. I had no words. No. Words. Me: OMG!!!!! Him: Hm? What happened? I quietly cleaned up said youth and thought of how to get revenge. Revenge I did get in the form of mismatching all his socks for the week. My sweet friend Clare sent me a new bottle and I have stored this in the safe with my homeowner’s insurance. It’s that special and maybe I’m almost a little bit that crazy. Fountain of youth people! Try it out for yourself you’ll feel my feels! Hope you do and hope you enjoy it!
