At the end of last year, I reported how I’d changed up my skincare routine in accordance with the weather.
I’d moved along from using Avene’s Eau De Thermale oil-free, minimal lotion – which was great for the summer when my sebaceous glands were going crazy – to something more nourishing. My winter moisturiser of choice was Trilogy Vital Moisturising Cream.
Before I go into my thoughts, I thought I’d tell you a bit more about the cream.
Trilogy vital moisturising cream- the vital ingredients
The cream contains organic rosehip oil (which contains Omega 3 and 6), evening primrose and orange flower. Trilogy also includes antioxidants from jojoba, carrot and grapefruit.
The cream itself comes in a glass jar with a plastic pump mechanism to dispense. This is great as there’s no waste. The pump only dispenses the smallest slither of cream, and a little really does go a long way. I only need a few slithers for my face and my neck:
With Trilogy Vital Moisturising Cream, a little goes a long way
At this rate, the cream will easily last for six months, which is ideal, as I’ll probably change to something lighter for the summer.
From a practicality point of view, being in a hard-to-squeeze bottle rather than a tub means that it’s pretty safe in little hands. I’ve had many a cream and Vaseline used up by younger relatives who couldn’t resist dunking their entire hands in! At least this cream is child-proof!
Having used it now for over a month, I’m pleased to report that it’s done my skin wonders.
Unlike many heavier creams such as Astral and Nivea, which leave my skin feeling greasy, Trilogy’s cream packs a moisture punch while still feeling relatively light. It’s absorbs quickly, but doesn’t leave a tight feeling, like Vaseline’s Moisturising Cream.
For me – having combination skin – it’s the ideal winter cream. I imagine it has a great effect on dry skin too. However if you have oily skin, you might prefer something a little lighter.
I noticed that my skin was happily softer after initial use. Over the weeks, I think it has helped balance my skin’s oils by providing moisture without drowning. My skin has become noticeably smoother and clearer, and while this cream can’t take all the credit (there’s a lot to be said for time as a healer of skin, as well as a less crappy diet) I think Trilogy Vital Moisturising Cream has certainly played it’s part.
