The Best Trilogy Skincare Treatments - Review

 This post contains gifted items.

Trilogy is a skincare brand that was created by New Zealand sisters Sarah Gibbs and Catherine de Groot, when they discovered the powerful benefits of Rosehip Oil, back in 2002. Originally a range of five Rosehip skincare products, they now craft over 40 incredibly effective natural alternatives to synthetic skincare, body care and haircare. Here are my two favourite skincare treatment products from their collection.

The Trilogy Bakuchiol+ Booster Treatment* (£29.50 for 12.5ml) is a two-week Vitamin A-like treatment that targets signs of ageing by helping to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, dryness and elasticity. The Booster Treatment comes in a little glass bottle complete with dropper applicator for easy use and contains 4% Bakuchiol, Plant Squalene, Omega-rich Hemp and Rosehip Oils plus Meadowfoam Oil to promote a more youthful complexion. Key ingredients include Bakuchiol, a purified Meroterpene Phenol found mainly in the Indian plant Babchi, known to have Vitamin A-like effects and thanks to its natural antioxidant, skin conditioning and emollient properties, Bakuchiol can help improve the signs of ageing. Squalene is a molecule that is found naturally in the skin as well as plants. In the skin it is produced by the hydrogenation of Squalene, which converts it to a fully saturated molecule. Squalene is able to provide hydration benefits and provide suppleness to the skin via its emollient properties resulting in a smooth look and feel to the complexion. Hemp is a highly emollient and skin conditioning oil that is expressed from the seeds of the Cannabis Sativa, known to contain high levels of essential fatty acids, and in addition to these fatty acids, antioxidants such as Vitamin E are also present. Meadowfoam Seed Oil is extracted from the seeds of the Meadowfoam plant, and its silky properties leave the skin feeling nourished and conditioned while feeling lightweight and not at all greasy on the skin. To use this Booster Treatment, you simply apply 2-3 drops of the oil onto the face both morning and evening for 2 weeks or until finished and then follow up with your regular oil, serum and/or moisturiser. I love that this is a two week treatment, as not everyone always has the time to incorporate extra products into their skincare regime, and in just those two weeks, you will see such a huge difference in your skin - I find that it really clears up my skin, and makes it feel fresher and newer, smoother and more radiant.

Trilogy's cult product is their Rosehip Oil and I have been loving the Trilogy Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+ (£31.50 for 30ml) version to nourish, hydrate and brighten the complexion, along with daily beneficial antioxidants. This advanced Rosapene formulation combines essential fatty acid rich Rosehip Oil with super antioxidants from Acai, Tomato Seed and Cranberry to nourish and help replenish the softness of the skin for the improved look of elasticity, while also helping to provide a protective moisture barrier against environmental damage. Key ingredients include pure, wild-harvested certified organic Rosehip Seed Oil, which has been cold-pressed and packed with a minimum of 80% fatty acids to hydrate, replenish and strengthen the skin's moisture barrier and Rosapene, Trilogy's unique fatty acid and antioxidant-packed seed oil blend of Rosehip, Tomato, Cranberry and Acai Seed Oils to nourish, replenish and hydrate. After cleansing the skin, massage 2-3 drops of the Rosehip Oil into the face, neck and d√©colletage both morning and night either alone or in conjunction with your regular moisturising products. Just like with the Booster Treatment, this comes in a glass bottle with a glass dropper applicator, so it is super easy to control the amount of product you are dispensing and can apply it straight onto the skin. As with all skincare products, it takes around 4-6 weeks to see a longer-lasting noticeable result, as this is how long the skin cell cycle takes to renew, but I noticed my skin was so much more hydrated and smoother in just a few days.
