Mario Badescu’s nourishing rose-hip oil is $11 at Ulta as part of its 21 Days of Beauty, and really, the timing couldn’t be better for this half-off deal. Now that Labor Day is over, the threat of dry winter skin is imminent, and rose-hip oil is known for being incredibly hydrating (as well as brightening, since it’s a natural source of vitamin C). Admittedly, we’ve never tried this particular rose-hip oil, but Badescu is known for making gentle-yet-effective skin care that suits even the most sensitive skin types, like its soothing, rose-scented skin mist or its cult-y pink drying acne treatment (a favorite of Janet Mock). Plus, for the price of a Sweetgreen salad, you can afford to stock up on this rose-hip oil now and avoid flaky skin later.
