If you saw my post a couple of days ago on Alpha H Essential Hydration Cream, you’d know that my skin is not in the best state at the moment. So instead of soldiering on with further product testing (PR samples are starting to pile up) I’ve decided to go back to my tried and true skin care routine until my skin bounces back.
A long time favourite product of mine is Trilogy Gentle Facial Exfoliant.
Price: RRP $36.95 AUD for 75mL
Availability: Myers, selected pharmacies, or online at http://www.trilogyproducts.com/, http://www.adorebeauty.com.au/
As with all Trilogy products, I trust their ingredients. There are no synthetic fillers to make the product texture ‘feel good’ (like propylene glycol or silicones), just things that work.
+ Does what a good exfoliant should do- help treatments sink in better after use, gives skin a lovely glow, refines skin, clear up congestion.
+ Gentle enough for sensitive skin, yet gives a very effective exfoliation. Does not dry out skin.
+ Can be left on as a masque- the Kaolin Clay draws out impurities from pores.
+ Has some great effective ingredients like Kaolin Clay, Rosehip seed oil, honey, and Jojoba oil.
+ Free from nasties such as Propylene Glycol, Parabens, Pthalates, Petrochemicals, etc.
+ not tested on animals.
+ At $36.96 it is priced higher than other brands you would find at the pharmacy.
+ Might be too gentle if you want a more a ‘scrubby’ kinda exfoliant with more gritty particles.
