Review: Trilogy Ultra Hydrating Face Cream

Banish dry, dehydrated skin and restore a soft, smooth complexion with this intensely moisturising moisture recovery cream.

Manuka Honey, rich in minerals and vitamins, draws moisture to the skin, helping to promote healing while botanical moisturisers Evening Primrose and Coconut hydrate and soften. The gentle fragrance which includes soothing Lavender will help relax and calm the senses.

Trilogy to me, has always meant rosehip oil. When I think of them, that is the first thing that comes to mind. Sure I knew they had other products, but had never really heard anything about them, so when I was contacted by Health2000 asking me to review the Trilogy Ultra Hydrating Face Cream, I jumped at the chance! 

If you follow my blog, you will know that I have quite oily/sensitive skin which tends to flare up whenever the opportunity arises (usually when I have an important event coming up, as you'd expect!), so using a rich face cream like this would probably seem like a pretty silly idea! But I actually have a few really dry areas on my face that need some TLC.

I have been using the Ultra Hydrating Face Cream for over 2 weeks now and I am surprised by the results!
It is fragranced, which usually means terrible things for my sensitive skin and allergies, but it hasn't affected me at all! Infact I find the gentle lavender scent to be quite soothing and calming, and I swear putting it on at night gives me a better sleep!
It is definitely a very rich cream, which can sometimes be a bit too much for my oily skin - so there have been a couple of days where I haven't been able to use it all over my face, and have instead just applied it on the really dry areas. This seems to work really well.

The real winner for me though, is how it looks under my makeup. To be honest with you, I expected it to make my face look and feel greasy, but it seems to create the perfect semi-matte base for my makeup! It also seems to take away some of the redness I get - amazing!

Not only am I enjoying this product, but I've seen my Mum eyeing it up a bit! It would actually be perfect for her dehydrated skin so I might even let her try it. Hahaha!
Highly recommend this to anyone who has dull, dry areas on their face - even if you're like me and have oily skin! You can check this out along with some other Trilogy products here.

Thanks for viewing!

January 2013 Favourites!

Wow, I haven't done a favourites post in so long - so I thought I better get my act together and let ya'll know what I've been loving!

To be honest with you, for the majority of January I was up north camping. So makeup was pretty much a no go. I mean what's the point in wearing it when you know it's all gonna come off at the beach anyway, right?

What I have been loving at this time of year is sunscreen! Living in NZ, pretty much puts us right under the hole in the ozone layer, so I feel like a high SPF sunscreen is an absolute must. I am quite fussy though, I hate that horrible thick gunky feeling that you find with most of them - so am always on the lookout for a new one
.The face sunscreen that I am basically in love with is the Sunsense Daily Face SPF 50+. Now I have to confess to you guys, that I got a bunch of samples of this - so I haven't even had to actually purchase the full size yet! Yay!
Honestly, I had never even considered trying this before because I just assumed that it would be thick and gross, but then a lot of people started recommending it to me, and because I had access to samples, I figured there was nothing to lose! I am so glad I gave it a go, because it has this awesome invisible tint matte finish that is perfect to wear on its own or under foundation.

The sunscreen I've been using on my body is the Nivea Ultra Beach Protect Sunscreen Spray SPF 30+. As you can see, I have lost the lid for this! I just love this; so easy to apply, absorbed quickly and actually works - provided you remember to reapply it regularly that is! Hahaha

Hair-wise, I've been loving my CHS Slip and CHS Curl Keeper. With no power to use my hair dryer or hair straightener, I needed to let my hair dry naturally - which can be a problem when your curls are frizzy and out of control! Using the Slip was great to get all tangles out of my hair, and the Curl Keeper is amazing at defining curls while controlling frizz.

The Body Shop Cranberry Joy shower gel has been my go to shower gel this month. I absolutely love smelling nice, and The Body Shop products pretty much never disappoint! Cranberry Joy is part of their Christmas limited edition range, so I made sure to stock up because it's one of my favourites!

That's pretty much my favourites for the month of January! I know there wasn't anything too exciting, but these are all great products that I have literally been using on a daily basis.
Thanks for viewing lovelies!
