Rescue remedy for dry skin featuring rosehip oil
1 oz/30 ml
We eagerly awaited the arrival of Luzern's new ReHydrate Oil for months — and it was well worth the wait. ReHydrate Oil features a hefty dose of rosehip oil, a master healer that soothes dryness, repairs damage and discoloration due to UV exposure, and reduces scarring thanks to a combination of naturally occurring essential fatty acids, retinoic acid, and powerful carotenoids. But here's where Luzern's formulation genius comes in: to avoid the heavy feel that usually plagues rosehip oil-based products, they've blended it with rapidly-penetrating squalane (from olives), ethyl macadamiate (a fatty acid from macadamia nuts that's a natural alternative to silicone), Vitamin E-rich Sweet Almond oil, and anti-inflammatory Evening Primrose oil. The result is a fast-absorbing texture with a "dry oil" feel, and skin that looks perfectly moisturized — never greasy.
Luzern didn't stop there, though. (Of course not, those overachievers — and we love them for that.) They added a few of their favorite anti-aging Swiss botanical extracts, like Buddleja Davidii Leaf extract, which helps prevent UV-induced aging, and Peucedanum Ostruthium Leaf extract, which provides further environmental protection while soothing skin. And a dab of lavender gives it a lovely natural scent that we think of as "hippie chic," in the best way possible.
PS If you ever used Luzern's Serum Absolut Rescue in the past, this is the new and improved version. Rescue was a favorite of our favorite New York facialist, Julia March, and this new version is even better!
