Beauty Review | Trilogy Rosehip Oil Antioxidant + Limited Edition 15ml + Giveaway

Good things come in small packages, so they say, and one of the most celebrated beauty products to hit the shelves in recent years is now available in a limited edition mini!

I was lucky enough to get my hands on this wee gem a couple of months ago, so am now well and truly converted to the magic of Trilogy’s stellar Rosehip facial oil.  My skin has been going through a really bad patch recently, every zone on my face seems to have gone in different directions with a myriad combo of teenage girl problems.  Ugh.  

I’ve stuck with the somewhat recent inclusion of Rosehip Oil to my beauty routine and I’m so, so glad I did.  My skin seems to have an increased depth, hopefully fending off the typical thinning associated with aging that I’ve begun to notice over the past few years.  The well documented benefits of Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+ include significantly improving brightness, skin tone, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and improved elasticity and firmness.  Check, check, check.  

Let’s be honest, it’s too soon to say that I can see a noticeable reduction in lines and wrinkles, however, I do believe that regular use of Rosehip oil will probably assist in preventing those pesky fine lines from developing into full blown facial crevasses!  And I’m all for that.

An invitation to discover for yourself why Trilogy Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+ has become such a beauty phenomena, the Limited Edition 15ml bottle is exactly half the size and half the price of the full size 30ml original! Available throughout June/July or until stocks last, you can pick up your own cute mini from selected Farmers, pharmacy, department and health stores nationwide.

Competition closed. Congratulations Ursula Gee!

We have three bottles to give away!  Comment below to go in the draw to win a bottle here plus head over to Facebook where I’ll be giving away two more bottles of this luscious little miracle.  Competition closes 10/6/15.  NZ residents only por favor. 

 

Beauty Review | Trilogy Hydrating Body Cream

Trilogy Hydrating Body Cream Mummy Blogger NZ

As is to be expected from Lazy Girl over here, my skin usually turns into parched, crispy lizard-like scales over winter. Lots of pants, lots of leggings, not much razor and no effort in the moisturizing department don’t do much for a girl, let’s be honest.
But, sigh, it is the year of beauty and skincare here at The Best Nest so I’m stepping up my game and so has Trilogy.  They’ve reformulated their Ultra Hydrating Body Cream so hopefully I’ll won’t have to come out of hibernation in the Spring needing a full body work-up before I can bare my legs!

My desk is right next to my bathroom so I’ve been grabbing this product a lot when I’ve noticed my hands are dry, which is a great measure of how quickly it’s absorbed.  Result?  Very quickly considering this is an oil-based cream.  Infused with certified organic rosehip oil, the new formulation also includes cocoa butter, sweet almond oil and coconut extract.  Sounds like dessert, but it’s lotion, yay!

A point of difference in this product is the addition of natural mineral mica to reflect light and make skin a bit more glowy as we head into these dull winter months.  I need all the glow I can get so will be treating my skin with this lovely lotion all winter long!

Beauty Review | Trilogy Rosapene Night Cream

WELCOME TO THE MUMMY MAKE-UP PROJECT!  I’M FIVE YEARS SHY OF 40 AND AFTER 20 YEARS OF CLUELESS MAKE-UP APPLICATION, 2015 IS THE YEAR OF TURNING DRAB TO FAB.  I’M GOING TO FIND THE BEST SKINCARE AND MAKE-UP PRODUCTS, SHARE THEM WITH YOU AND ACTUALLY LEARN HOW TO USE THEM.  I WOULD LOVE YOUR ADVICE ALONG THE WAY AS WELL AS YOUR SUPPORT – I’M SURE I’M NOT THE ONLY MUMMY OUT THERE WHO IS COMPLETELY CLUELESS ABOUT MAKE-UP!

So, in keeping with my new resolution to actually spend a little bit of time each day taking care of my skin, I have added a product to my limited routine which can get all of it’s work done at night while I’m catching up on (not enough!) sleep.
You won’t be surprised to hear that I have never used a night cream before.  Previously, if I bothered to remove my makeup before bed, I would just pop on whatever daily moisturizer I was currently using and call it a day.
Sadly, advancing age and a recurring failure to drink enough water means I often wake with my skin feeling dry and looking sallow and worse than it did before bed!
Some new products take longer to get used to than others, as such, it’s taken about a week for my skin to settle down after introducing Trilogy Rosapene Night Cream.  This is an intense moisture surge that initially left my skin feeling slightly oily and caused a few spots.  Happy to report that this is now a thing of the past and my skin looks positively freaking dewy when I wake up!  Adding a night cream has made a huge difference in how my skin feels throughout the day, starting with a hydrated base is resulting in a much more natural, smooth makeup application, and I find that afternoon oil-slicks are now a thing of the past.  I’m picking this is probably due to my skin no longer feeling like it’s got to produce huge amounts of oil to compensate for it’s dehydrated state?
So, here’s the vital stats;

  • Named Best Night Cream in 2014 at NZ Best in Beauty Awards
  • Rosapene is a trademarked antioxidant complex containing an organic blend of Rosehip oil, lycopene from tomato and phytosterol from acai
  • Also contains superheroes goji berry extract, manuka honey and avocado oil

Why do I need it?

  • Skin cell production is at its highest while we rest
  • Water loss and blood flow are highest at night ergo; the skin is most receptive to nourishing natural activities while we sleep.
