I have recently been introduced to the wonder that is rose hip oil (from Vogue forums, where else!) I have very dry, fairly reactive skin, and whilst I don't exactly have an issue with spots, I just find my skin to generally be very dull and often uneven in tone. After reading rave reviews on this oil, I had to try it.
Two weeks ago, I purchased a little bottle of Trilogy Certified Organic rose hip oil, for just $16 from my local chemist - and I am officially in love! I especially adore that the Trilogy brand is cruelty-free and does not test on animals - massive bonus points!

I am on Day 11 of using rose hip oil on my skin - every evening, after cleansing, I apply the oil to dry skin and massage in thoroughly. My skin is so dry it takes around 7 drops to get full coverage!
These photos were taken of me tonight, after I had cleansed and applied the rose hip oil - I am not wearing one iota of makeup, and they are not airbrushed or photoshopped (although due to the low megapixel quality of my digital camera, they are not the clearest photos ever).
I am ecstatic to say that I honestly think this is the best my skin has ever, ever looked. I have been wearing little more than a liquid blush on my face for the past week! No concealer! No foundation!! And for the first time in SO long, my skin doesn't feel dry or irritated, just nice and plump and hydrated.
I cannot recommend this product highly enough - it has achieved true Holy Grail beauty product status for me.
PS: You may have noticed I have only included my lower face in the photos. Two reasons - I don't particularly want to plaster my full face all over the net; and also, I don't apply the oil to my forehead, as I think it would make my fringe greasy, so I don't see any point in showing you the top half anyways.
