mam, I think it is a great skincare product. Great for moisturising and great for hyperpigmentation and skin conditions such as eczema. As you have noticed, I talk about it a lot.

I apply it on my face twice daily to moisturise. I dampen a cotton pad with witch hazel, drop a drop of rosehip on this and then swipe over my face and neck. I need a few drops (used one at a time) to cover my whole face. I still use a normal moisturiser on top because it has spf but I don't need to use a lot.

Rosehip oil is great gives your skin a glow hydrates is not greasy and contains a form of vitamin A which we all need to replenish daily as skin supplies are decreased by exposure to UV light

Hi Everyone,

I have finally collated all my treatment info, gone over my little electrolysis jot book with bookings, reactions, costs etc and come up with the following total.

In total I had 29.5 hours of electrolysis on sides of my face, jawline, chin, and sides of lips. Treatment was spread out over 1 year and 3 months. In the beginning the appointments were longer, in order to clear as much as possible without over treating, twice a month. As the hair became more sparse the appointments were shorter but in general were still scheduled twice a month.

I hope this log helps provide some info to those out there looking into electrolysis. I have gained so much confidence since having completed my treatment. My skin suffered for a little while. Although that is just my sensitive skin and this journey has proved that even with very sensitive skin and perseverance electrolysis is most certainly possible - and that's without any long term damage or scarring I am very happy to report.

In the middle of my treatment I had a few pores which looked very large but over time these have shrunk back to normal. smile

I followed the advice on this forum and from my electrologist with regards to aftercare, sun protection etc., with the exception of tea tree oil, as it just made me break out (again, I must stress this is just something I found, and MANY people have used tea tree successfully for post treatment).

My Aftercare consisted of:

Months 1-5: Tea tree cotton buds, avene water, Witch Doctor Hazel skin treatment gel & Aubrey Aloe Vera.

I would avoid sun as much as possible, then 3 days later would apply Avene SPF 50 cream every day when going out.

A couple of times I applied Vitamin C powder directly to my face to aid in healing.

For 5 days post

Month 6-15: Same as above minus tea tree oil, as advised by my electrologist.

I would like to say one last thank you to All those who posted, replied and helped me along during were somtimes difficult times. Thank you doesn't seem like enough, but i want you all to know that those words you took the time to type really made all the difference to me. I honestly feel like a different person, with my hair up in a ponytail in comparison to hiding behind my long hair. THANK YOU!!!
