A MIA ZIA classic (one of our first potions!), our ROSEHIP face balm is concocted from tried and true skin moisturizers to create a product suitable for everyday moisturizing. Combining high-quality oils, shea butter, and beeswax, our balm has a smooth consistency that isn't too greasy or oily. Tamanu, Vitamin E, and Frankincense oils pack a powerful restorative punch with their antioxidant and antimicrobial properties adding to their moisturizing benefits.
Our face balm makes for a great anti-aging cream or daily use moisturizer. The natural Vitamin A content in Rosehip seed oil make it an especially potent remedy for hyperpigmentation, dryness, and acne.

Contrary to what you might expect, rosehip seed oil does not smell anything like roses. This product has a nutty smell derived from the tamanu oil and shea butter. Frankincense also contributes its earthy, woody scent. The combination of these smells may have a calming or grounding effect.
All ingredients are non-comedogenic (do not clog pores). This means that this balm is good for all skin types, including acne-prone skin.
I recommend performing a patch test in order to make sure you are not sensitive to any of the ingredients. Apply a small amount of facial oil to the skin of the upper forearm. Leave on for 24 hours. If any redness, itching or irritation is observed at any time throughout the test, do not use the product.
Warm balm between fingertips to apply to clean, damp skin. A little goes a long way. You can apply facial mist before or after application for extra moisturizing and refreshing benefits. This will also help to spread the balm over the skin. Massage thoroughly over face and neck. Pay special attention to jawline and neck - there are a lot of lymph vessels under the skin here. This moisturizer can be used during the daytime, but I recommend using sunscreen due to the natural Vitamin A content. I recommend using sunscreen all the time no matter what!
