About three months ago I purchased a 50ml bottle of Rio Rosa Mosqueta Oil and I have to say I absolutely adore this product. The bottle is made of frosted glass with the product name embellished in pink. The bottle has a pump top which releases a small amount of oil and it is a welcomed delight on my dressing table.
The oil is made from a wild Rose (Rosa Affines Rubiginosa) that grows high up in the Chilean Andes. South American women have been using the oil for centuries for its rejuvenating and anti-aging skin properties. Rio Rosa Mosqueta Oil is made from oil extracted from the Rose Hips collected from the wild Roses.
The oil is cold pressed to preserve the Essential Fatty Acids. The Rose Hip oil contains more Gamma Linoleic Acid than Evening Primrose oil, Borage oil or Blackcurrant Seed oil. Omega 3 & 6 and a natural form of vitamin A (Trans-Retinoic Acid) are also found in this Rose Hip oil.
The Rose Hip oil is a pale yellow colour. It has no particular odour and it leaves no greasy residue on the skin. Just a small amount is needed to leave the skin feeling soft and hydrated.
I tried this product because the skin creams I had been using were causing irritation of my skin. Everything I tried felt sticky or slimy and my skin would itch and become very dry. Some products caused rashes on my face. So I started looking for natural products with no added chemicals and I came across the Rio Rosa Mosqueta Oil website.

The oil is one hundred per cent natural and lays claims to dramatically reducing all visible scars, stretch marks, sun damaged skin and helps reduce the signs of aging. This is too good to be true I thought to myself but I purchased my first bottle none the less.
I have use the oil on my face, neck and hands nearly every day for three months. The first thing I noticed was a change in the texture of my skin, it felt like velvet. After a few weeks of using the oil I noticed that the small brown patches I had on my cheeks were beginning to fade, as were similar patches on the backs of my hands. After three months they have almost disappeared.
I have several small scars on my body as a result of operations and accidents so I thought I would try the oil on these. One particular scar on my leg has definitely faded.
As for the anti-aging claim, I have had comments that my face looks fresher but my frown line is still frowning at me. The tiny lines around my lips and eyes are less noticeable and a male friend commented that I looked the best he had seen me for a long while!
I have requested and received a free sample of the new Rio Rosa Mosqueta Day and Night Cream to try. I was expecting a sachet but the Rio Rosa team sent me a whole pot. It is made of the same frosted glass with the pink embellished logo and contains 50ml of thick, organic, pale yellow cream which has a very slight nutty aroma that fades once applied.
Since applying it my skin feels deliciously soft. I had thought while using the oil that sometimes I just wanted to slap a huge dollop of cream on my face to rehydrate it and this cream does the trick. It is luscious and non-greasy and my face feels supple and hydrated.
Rio Rosa Mosqueta Cream is made from natural essential oils and organic ingredients. It is conserved with Salicylic Acid and Sodium Benzoate.

I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to use natural, organic ingredients in their skin care routine. I am never going back to artificial, chemical ridden potions that cost a fortune and do not do what it says on the jar.
Well done Rio Rosa Mosqueta Oil, I think it lives up to its claims and I intend to continue to purchase these Rose Hip oil products.
