The Trilogy Rosehip Oil has become a bit of a ‘holy-grail’ skincare staple hasn’t it!
I have combination skin and oils seem to benefit both the dehydrated and oily areas. My skin has been suffering through the winter months becoming so dehydrated, so I’ve been using the Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil every evening. It was a trusty twitter recommendation which I added into my skincare routine around 6 weeks ago, here’s my thoughts…
The oil costs £19.50, which from reading the ingredients list seems pretty reasonable to me. Of-course the main ingredient is the Certified Organic Rosehip Oil which contains omega 3, 6 and 9, essential fatty acids and antioxidants. You get 20ml in a bottle and after 6 weeks of use every evening I’m not even half way through yet – so it’s going to last!
Why are facial oils good for combination skin?
Before purchasing this I decided to do a little research of my own around facial oils in general. I don’t have sensitive skin but still stay clear of mineral oil as it can clog the pores and cause further problems. I’ve realised that plant based oils are a completely different playing field. Plant based oils are natural and can actually help regulate oil production within the skin as the properties are so similar.
How I use this within my current routine
This is the third step within my routine after I cleanse and tone. I use Rosehip oil in the evening, although you can use it both morning and night. I apply 3 drops into the palm of my hands than I press the oil into my face rather than rub, mainly concentrating on my cheeks and forehead as this is where I have the most scaring and dehydrated skin. I find that this sinks into my skin quickly without leaving any uncomfortable greasy residue behind (one thing I dreaded that I thought an oil would do).
The differences in my skin
I’ve been using this for 6 weeks now and I’m already noticing that the scaring I had from blemishes are fading, and any blemishes I’ve had in that time have healed and cleared much quicker than usual. Even after day 3 I noticed that my skin was incredibly soft and smooth, the texture of my skin has changed completely becoming so much more plump and hydrated.
The oil has been clinically tested and shown to help minimise the appearance of wrinkles, smooth skin and improve skin moisture levels. My skin moisture levels have definitely improved, I no longer get that tight skin feeling from dehydration. My skin is also much smoother, and my makeup is lasting longer and looking nicer throughout the day because of the boost of hydration. I haven’t noticed that my skin has been more oily or less oily really, so it really has done everything I hoped it would.
Overall I am so impressed and happy that I have this lovely product within my routine. It is nice to use something so natural that really makes a difference.
