Trilogy Rosehip Oil- The Review.

trilogy rosehip

Trilogy Rosehip Oil is one of those cult products, everyone seems to swear by – including Miranda Kerr. Packed full of antixodiants and Omega 3,6 &9 this light weight and non greasy oil promises to dramatically improve skin moisture levels, help fade scars and pigmentation as well as reducing wrinkles. Not quite at the age where I need to start worrying about wrinkles, but definitely in need of a moisture boost and certainly keen on fading my pigmentation and old spot scars and lightweight/non greasy. It sounded like the perfect oil!

 When I can’t find a decent beauty blog review I always fall back on Make Up Alley as my barometer for whether a hyped up product is really worth it, and it assured me that it wouldn’t be a problem for my combination skin- oil on oil, yes I’ve heard a million times that it can be good for reducing excess oil. I was sold.

So I popped down to Boots to see what all of the fuss was about and parted with £16.50 for a little 20 ml bottle of this magical oil.

That night I couldn’t wait to use it, however I wasn’t totally convinced by the smell- it has a sort of fishy undertone, but it absorbed into my skin quickly which was a relief- no greasy residue as promised- phew. I awoke the next morning to a very irritated t-zone- under the skin bumps and some redness. I persisted a few more nights until I finally gave up on the oil. It was just not meant to be. However, I still use it from time to time on my cheeks, especially on cold days like today and it does make a lovely make-up base as it just adds that extra dewy factor to give a healthy glow, and I do see a slight fading of my pigmentation/old spot scars so it definitely seems to be doing something- not a total waste of money.

Definitely not a hero product, but well worth a go if you have normal, dry or mature skin. It’s also a lovely cold weather saviour to mix in with your usual daily moisturiser to give an added boost- but if you’re like me, with combination skin, stick to using this solely on your cheeks and neck or on specific scars elsewhere on your body!
