I put it on my face and then rinsed off with water put could see and smell it still on. I know you guys are putting oils on your face and was wondering if it clogs your pores too? Thanks..Jenn
      Rosehip seed oil and seabuckthorn oil are very low in comedogenicity (clogging pores and causing acne) and also borage pretty low. Flax seed oil and coconut oil are high. You can find charts on line if you google comedogenicity of oils. Different sources will vary a little but you can get a good idea which ones are low and which are high from looking at a few.

        Anyone else experience flushing soon after application?
        I've only used it once (last night), should I continue using it and hope I get some benefit or will the flushing gradually make things worse?

        Seems almost every topical I've tried other than zinc makes me flush.

          I seemed to make me more red. It has vitamin a in it like a natural retinol.
          So I stay hell away from it. I'm sure retinol is no good for any rosacea sufferer but I could be proved wrong.
          I would say try sea buckthorn as people were raving about it few years ago but that might have retinol in it too, and the berry oil for it is just ridiculous as it is so staining and hard to remove.

            I wonder if it matters that it's a natural form of retinol. How long did you use it for and did your redness go back to baseline when you stopped?

            I wanted to try sea buckthorn oil in the past but I haven't had any luck with anything so far so I'm inclined to believe it probably won't do anything for me either and it's way too expensive to buy for a what would probably be a one time use. And yeah it also has retinol.

                That's good to hear at least. It made me flush but the next morning it was back to normal. I might try it again once I confirm/rule out that the supplement I took (ashwagandha) was what caused my flare up yesterday. Bad idea to try new things simultaneously.

                  Yeh totally, seabuckthorn never made me red. Didn't work fast and I'm impatient so maybe with time it would have been ok
