Fighting Sensitive Skin

Fighting Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin is something I have faught my whole life. My skin is prone to sore, dry bits on a bad week and then can also experience full blown swollen, dry, itchy, crispy allergic reactions. I usually keep this all under wraps by avoiding anything that makes me react in such a way and only using gentle products on my skin.

I had quite a bad reaction last week and even a little bit of this, while cleaning mould off a wall and woke up the next morning with a swollen face and neck. Scary enough as it was, when most of the swelling had gone down and I was ready for work again my skin looked horrible. My skin was dry, sore and itchy with odd patch of puffiness. Just what I wanted **sarcasm**.Fighting Sensitive Skin

Trilogy Rosapene Beauty Collection

Trilogy Rosapene Beauty Collection

Trilogy has put out some awesome Holiday gift boxes. I was sent the Rosapene Beauty Collection to try. This box contains A full size 30ml Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+, 20ml mini Vital Moisturising Cream and 25ml mini Rosapene™ Night Cream .

The other gift boxes are: Age-Proof Beauty Collection RRP $57.90, Everyday Must-Haves RRP $26.90 and Handbag Heroes RRP $22.90. Trilogy collection

The box it came in is super cute and the “minis” are bigger than expected and have quite a bit of product in them.

Vital Moisturising Cream
“Daily nourishment and hydration with Rosapene™, marula, orange flower.”img_7536edited_zpswsljpett

Full Size: $49.90 NZD 60ml

This is a great day cream, it is on the thicker side for a day cream, but still blends in quickly and sits under makeup well. It did not irritate my skin or make it oily, but instead made my skin look refreshed and well hydrated.

Rosapene Night Cream
“Revive, restore and rehydrate with RosapeneTM, goji and manuka honey.”

Full Size: $54.90 NZD 60ml

This is such a thick gorgeous cream, at night I love massaging in a thick night cream, it always feels super luxurious. Its often when I have removed all my makeup and given it a bit of a scrub with a cleanser, so have such a thick, nourishing cream to soak in and work its magic overnight is great. This always made my skin look well rested the next day, less dry and smooth.

Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+:
“A powerful beauty oil with our unique formulation Rosapene™ for healthier, younger looking skin.”img_7540edited_zpswczowjji

Full Size: $35.90 NZD

Oh man this was far better than I expected. It felt so good in my face! It has such a great texture to it and massaged in really well. I am so glad the bottle is full size. Its often would exfoliate my face before bed and apply nothing but this and the next morning my skin would look so good!

The box was a really good deal and a great way to try the products without forking out too much for them. I have to admit the full size prices did make me stutter a little bit. They are fantastic products and I would love to have them, but I think I would have to wait till I had vouchers or a good store discount to permanently add them to my skin care routine. If you live in New Zealand keep an eye on deals at Farmers, they often have 3 for 2. They are worth it and a lot goes a long way, so see it as an investment in gorgeous skin 😉

Have you tried anything from Trilogy? What do you think of the gift boxes?

Hello!

Today I have for you an interesting new product; Trilogy’s Make-up Be Gone Cleansing Balm. Wondering what that is? It’s a solid make-up remover, yup solid! Wanna know how it works? Keep reading 😉

Trilogy Makeup Be Gone

Saaaaay what? Its solid?! Yup and chock full of all sorts of goodness that it can even go near your eyes. Don’t worry it warms up very quickly and spreads across your skin evenly and massages into your skin gently lifting up your day’s worth of make-up.

How do you use it?:
I scooped out about a New Zealand $0.10c coin worth of product and rubbed in between the tips of my fingers to start warming it up. Next I started massaging it in, starting at my nose and working outwards across my cheeks. I did all around my face first, ignoring my eyes and lip area. I usually have on a lot of eye make-up so I wanted to make sure I paid a bit more attention to this area and with enough product. Mr Gabby claimed I looked Furiosa after this XD

I found after working the balm into my eye area my finger tips were also quite black from my liquid eye liner, so I cleaned them off and then rubbed more product into my lips. This makes it sound as though I am using a heap of product, but I am not really just enough to coat the tips of my fingers. I worked out pretty quickly to do my eyes and lips last or else I just smeared eye liner and lipstick everywhere XD

Now you need to wash it off with a warm, damp cloth. Don’t be too startled when all of your make-up transfers over to your face cloth, I found I could just rinse it all out with a bit of soap. Better the cloth than your skin :3

So did it remove all the make-up?:
There was so much confidence in how good this was going to be that I was even sent white towels along with my bundle to dry my face on. Trilogy claims it removes every last bit of make-up so that your white towels stay pristine! So? The first time I tried this I forgot about the bit of foundation I blend down my neck, so I got foundation on my new white towels T_T, but no eye liner! After that I remembered my neck and my towels stayed white. It works really well, you just have to remember where you put your make-up that morning. If you have heavy eye-liner on I would recommend possibly having a second go with the balm just to make sure you get everything.

What did it do to my skin?:
It was so very gently, especially around the eye area. No burning, it didn’t make my eyes run, my skin didn’t feel over cleansed afterwards. If anything it felt very moisturised.

Would I buy it again? Yes, I liked how well it took my make-up off and the end of the day without hurting my skin. It can be a little time consuming, but it makes sure you wash your face. I still use my Micellar Water if I am removing my make-up late at night and want it done quickly.

Have you tried any solid make-up removers before?

Thanks for stopping by!
