Blooming marvellous: Pai's Rosehip BioRegenerate

| 23rd March 2011
Pai's new rosehip-rich moisturiser packs a real punch, says Matilda Lee

First, a word to the wise. Be careful not to over egg the pudding when using Pai's new Rosehip BioRegenerate, £20, because any more than a few drops on your face will, if you have fair skin like me, give you a slightly orange tint. 

Such is the potency of the ingredients, you need only a small amount to cover your entire face and body. Once I got the amount right, I discovered that Pai's new moisturiser was a real skin food product. As the name suggests, it's packed with rosehip; the ultimate skin healer  boasting plenty of vitamin A as well as omega three, six, seven and nine. Recent studies show rosehip to be effective at improving the appearance of scars, stretch marks, sun damage and fine lines. Equally, rosehip has high levels of essential fatty acids.

That, along with the fact that the whole range is Soil Association certified and free of parabens, petrochemicals or phenoxyethanol, puts Pai in a select group of clean, green skincare brands that really work.  Orange tint aside, Pai's Rosehip BioRegenerate will be a sure-fire hit with anyone interested in the serious task of keeping skin healthy and well fed.
