Help the Orangutans by looking after your skin?


Remember my glowing review a while back on Trilogy Rosehip Oil?

“Increased demand for paper products and palm oil has lead to the deforestation of rainforests in South East Asia. Due to the loss of their natural habitat, the survival of orangutans is under threat. The Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation actively rescues and
rehabilitates wild orangutans from oil plantations and releases them into wild, protected rainforest habitats.

Trilogy produces effective, quality natural skin and hair care products which are ethically and environmentally responsible. Trilogy supports ethical trade practices, is against animal testing and has recyclable packaging.

This cause means a great deal to Trilogy and we appreciate your support.

Catherine de Groot and Sarah Gibbs
Trilogy co-founders”

Tip of the Day

I am as guilty as most of having a cup (or ten) coffee’s throughout the day to keep me going but did you know that caffeine causes dehydration? And that dehydration of the skin is a known contributor to wrinkles?

Avoid soft drinks completely and cut back your caffeine intake from coffee (and some tea’s) or try switching to decaf and make sure your drinking your 8 glasses of water a day. Your skin will thank you in the long run!

Tip of the Day

Think that added sugar in your food and drinks is only bad for your hips? Think again, sugar increases the rate of  a process called glycation which basically breaks down the collagen in your skin. Less collagen = wrinkles!

Review: Trilogy Vital Moisturising Cream

Vital Jar The  next in the Trilogy review series!

I have dry skin, drier than a rhinoceros, I’m not even exaggerating.   The problem is that I also have large pores and I find that many of the moisturisers I try that are actually moisturising enough clog my pores.

This stuff doesn’t! I couldn’t be happier with the results of the Trilogy products, ( generally I only like one thing from a range). My skin is appearing healthier all-over!

As with the other products this is also environmentally friendly and contains the ever so popular rosehip oil along with evening primrose, carrot and orange flower. The scent I hear is a down fall for some, it is kind of grandma-ish, but having found a moisturiser that works on my dry, dry skin and doesn’t clog my pores I really don’t care!

I use this in the morning after cleansing and at night after cleansing, toning, rosehip oil then the moisturiser. My skin feels softer, no flakies ( i am still exfoliating) and appears more hydrated and fresh.

I honestly don’t know what else to say, there isn’t anything negative I’ve found with it,  and I would have by now I’ve been using it for over 2 months.

Vital Moisturising Cream 60g available  $38.00

Review: Trilogy Rosehip Oil


Trilogy Rosehip Oil has been scientifically proven to help the appearance of scars and stretch marks, in fact it has scored 10/10 in an evaluation for its performance!Trilogy - the clinically proven Rosehip oil


I can definitely see and feel the difference and understand why it has been growing in popularity amongst a wide demographic.
Improves skin moisture by up to 44%
Reduces appearance of wrinkles by up to 23%
Improves skin smoothness by up to 21%


Only a small amount is needed (2-3 drops) as this marvellous oil spreads easily and evenly. The lid doubles as a dropper so no product is wasted, (hygienic too!)

I have personally been using this mainly on my décolletage as this is the one area I’m a tad paranoid about aging. I find that it spreads beautifully leaving my skin gleaming with a healthy glow.

I also gave this to my mother to use and she was equally impressed but for a different use. Working as an aged carer she often gets bumps and scratches from the rowdy residents (yes, in an aged care home) and the Rosehip Oil  has definitely been helping her skin to repair quicker and smoother.

The only thing that I’m not overly keen on is the scent, but to be honest it doesn’t last long enough to really bother me. (That’s just me nit-picking)

Overall I find The Trilogy Rosehip oil to work just like it claims, which is refreshing since there are a sea of products that really don’t!
