The latest buzz product on the beauty market is well-known and well tested, but the skin-clearing solution that fell of the radar is experiencing a resurgence, being spruiked by celebrities, models and experts alike. And the best news? It's the cheapest skincare product on the market.

Rosehip oil is an extract from a wild rose bud common to areas like Argentina and Chile.

When applied to the face like a serum, Dermatologist Natasha Cook said it can help with a range of skin problems.

"Where rosehip oil may be of benefit is that it comes with a high concentration of these natural lipids known as essential fatty acids, which can help replenish those lipids rebuild the brick wall and actually increase the barrier function of the skin," Dr Cook said.

"So where rosehip oil could be of benefit is in replenishing that skin barrier. This is particularly true of conditions like general irritation dermatitis, exczema and even potentially rosacea and psoriasis."

Long-term acne sufferer, Leanne Ball, turned to Rosehip oil after reading up on its skin regeneration benefits.

"Since using the rosehip oil the scars have healed and the skins really glowing and really good so i'm really impressed with it."

Products featured on the show:

Supermodel Miranda Kerr included the product in her Kora range for around $45, but the cheapest on the market, Sunspirit, costs just $12.99.

Other brands average about $20 per bottle and it can be found at pharmacists and natural therapy stores.
