From dry patches and flakiness to breakouts and skin so shiny you can see the reflection of my high vis cycling jacket, I have suffered from it all and more so right now. So what do I reach for to save my skin? Well, Trilogy’s Rosehip Oil Antioxidant +.
As a 31-year-old who (STILL) suffers with spots from time to time, I was a bit hesitant at first. After all, it is an oil and no matter what I read about facial oils’ abilities to rebalance the skin, I still have the fear that I’m putting grease on-top-of grease. I had visions of my experiments as a child when I tried and failed to mix oil with water. I had a lot of fun mixing and shaking but neither were able to penetrate the other and I ended up right back where I started. Fortunately for me, my experience with Trilogy Rosehip Antioxidant + oil is a completely different story.
It is an oil and has a liquid consistency, so you have to be quick to apply the required two drops to your face. They suggest massage it into your skin but I just try to ensure it’s spread evenly on my face, paying particular attention to the areas that need it most such as lines around my mouth, forehead and cheekbones. There have been times when I’ve thought “am I just spreading olive oil over my face” as there’s a faint whiff of this familiar scent about it but the results suggest that Trilogy Rosehip Antioxidant + oil really does contain game-changing ingredients in terms of the condition and appearance of my skin.
One of the most obvious of these is Rosehip Oil, which helps to repair skin tissue and smoothes fine lines. A few celebs are said to be fans (Miranda Kerr, David Gandy) but I’m not so bothered about that. The proof, as they say, is in the pudding. And I’ve been getting some pretty sweet results.
My skin looks brighter, I’m not suffering from so much dryness on my chin and although I still suffer from the occasional blemish, they’re not as frequent. I even got a thumbs-up from my mum who replaced her usual spiel “you look tired” with “your skin is looking good”. Whether it’s the Rosehip oil or the powerful combo of antioxidants (lycopene and phytosterol) added, which protect against the harsh “free radical damage” (those nasty atoms found in the environment that cause your skin to deteriorate), Trilogy Rosehip Oil Antioxidant + works for me.
This is the first product from Trilogy – a company founded in New Zealand – that I’ve tried and the Rosehip oil is certified organic, so it’s top-notch stuff that comes at a a price, £26.50 for 30ml. Then again, you only need two drops. I have been applying it religiously at night for the past three months and there’s still three-quarters of the bottle left. You also have to keep an eye on the use by date as organic beauty products do not contain preservatives. Not that this will put me off buying Trilogy Rosehip Oil Antioxidant + again.
Let’s just put it this way, I’d like to add this powerful beauty treat to my Christmas list (and I’ve been ok this year, Santa, honest) and perhaps the body oil too (I’ll be doubly good next year).
Has anyone else tried Trilogy’s products?
