Trilogy's Rosehip Oil is a bright orange oil with a very light consistency. It has no discernible smell and is easily absorbed. It contains a blend of vitamins and fatty acids to help replenish and renew the skin. On the box Trilogy claim that this oil can combat scars, stretch marks and wrinkles. I really think that they need to add acne to that list because this stuff has worked wonders on my blemishes. It has healed red active spots, scarring from old spots and along with chemical exfoliants, has cleared my skin of closed comedones. The result is that the texture of my skin has been completely resurfaced. It is smooth, soft and bump-free. For me that's a really big deal. I had a bad reaction to the REN Micro Polish Cleanser a few months ago and got loads of red spots as well as the closed comedones underneath my skin. My face never really recovered from that and I was close to giving up. My skin looked like crap with and without makeup because of those bumps. But this has saved my skin! I can't even remember the last time my forehead didn't have a bump on it. My chin is still suffering a bit but my blackheads and congestion do lessen every time I use this.
I normally use about 5 drops scattered on my face at night and massage it in. Whereas I can use the Clarins Lotus Oil on it's own I do feel that I need to use a moisturiser after this. In my opinion the dream teammate for this oil is Origins High Potency Night-A-Mins. They work perfectly together to keep my skin hydrated, nourished, radiant and clear when I wake up the next morning. I think my favourite thing about rosehip oil is the clarity it gives to my face. It works to fade scarring as well as balancing out my uneven skin tone. Thanks to this wonder oil I've not actually worn a full face of foundation for the last month, opting for Clinique CC Cream instead. I never thought that I would be one of 'those' people but for me full coverage foundation is now a thing of the past.
I picked this up in Boots with my meal deal for £16.50 but you can actually get it loads cheaper on Escentual at just £11.75! I'd happily pay much more for this product and I think £11 is well within most people's skincare budget. So if you don't mind waiting a couple of days for delivery then that's a fab deal. I'd recommend getting the smaller bottle anyway because oil does lose it's freshness over time. The difference this has made to my skin is just astounding. If you've not tried using rosehip oil already, go and buy some right now!
