Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil Review!

7 October 2014

The winner of countless beauty awards & a hot favorite of celebrities...even the ones beyond our shores...'Trilogy Rosehip Oil' is finally on the blog!

Remember I mentioned visiting Auckland Botanical Gardens to collect Rosehips? It was for this particular post.

This is a sample bottle.
I once had a full bottle of it... late last year. Figured it'll be a perfect companion to my Indian holiday cum wedding.

Day 1- New years eve 2013
New year = New skin!
Bamm!! I drop the bottle... and my heart just sank. I posted the wreckage on Instagram.

Been back to NZ since ages and forgot all about buying another one. Until last month when Trilogy did a massive #Sharethemagic campaign. They gave away 10 mini samples to share with family & friends. Cute 2.5 ml bottles! Now I did share a few around (I swear!) but kept some of these adorable mini dropper bottles for myself too. I've been using this Rosehip Oil religiously every night since then & have noticed a difference.

Here's my Experience with this much acclaimed oil -
Rosehip Oil is extracted from the seeds in the rose buds. The oil is known for its antioxidant properties- Rich in Omega 3,6 & 9. These essential fatty acids can bring life back to dry & dehydrated skin and are scientifically proven to reduce scars & stretch marks.

- The oil is a golden yellow liquid with a slight natural smell. Nothing overpowering.
- The oil spreads easily. You only need 2-3 drops for the entire face.
- It's very hydrating.
- I've used it every night this whole month & I'm pretty pleased with it. Could it be this? I've not had a single pimple on my face last month. My skin is not acne-prone but every once in a while I'd get this big red stubborn painful one! I certainly don't miss them.
- Its suitable for all skin types. Mine's dry so understandably it drinks up. Sunshine has combo/oily skin and he doesn't mind it either.

- It can be used morning & night, but with my 5 minute makeup routine every morning I have no time to wait in between moisturizer & BB cream. So night it is for me!
Though on the weekends I have it on all day & then go on to do an unplanned makeup review without any qualms. Makeup doesn't slide & foundation looks lovely. No dry patches.
- I can say this with certainty that my eyelashes have grown heaps with it. I apply it all over face, including eyes, eyebrows, lashes every night. This has definitely been a blessing in disguise.
- My skin is also more even. I step out of house for errands with just this on. It has relieved me of my dependence on Clarins Beauty Flash Balm.

- Rosehip Oil is a fast healer. I tried it on my flu + tissue battered nose & it was healed next morning.
- I've had no dry skin episodes in the last month.
- My freckles/sun spots seem to have lightened & many of the old acne marks are nowhere to be seen. This is quite a subjective observation though.
- Rosehip oil is anti-aging so this is one routine I'm happy to continue. Its fuss free & good for you. With 80% + antioxidant content, its actually a very potent serum.

Verdict: Trilogy Rosehip Oil is wonder in a bottle. No doubt a celeb favorite! Its an excellent moisturizer + night cream + anti-aging serum + Stretch marks fade-r + dark spots corrector in one. It works slowly but gets there eventually. At 100% Natural + Certified Organic, there's nothing to lose. Is it?

If you can afford it, Buy it! If you go with a generic brand (Google!), make sure it's cold pressed, natural and 100% Rosehip Oil.
