When I first started blogging Trilogy Rosehip Oil was my go-to facial oil. In a previous incarnation of this blog I even said it was a product I could never be without.
My skincare routine has changed a lot since 2011 and Trilogy Rosehip Oil fell out of favour as I explored other brands. But when my skin was feeling the effects of the cold winter months I decided to repurchase the Trilogy Rosehip Oil to see how it held up.
What Trilogy has to say

Ingredients – Rosa Canina (rosehip) seed oil.
Instructions – Gently massage 2-3 drops into face and/or body. Use morning and night or as required. Use alone or in conjunction with your regular moisturising products.
What I have to say
Facial oils are a great way of making sure that dry skin is getting enough nourishment. When I first turned to oils Trilogy Rosehip Oil seemed like a good place to start because it only contains rosehip oil. One ingredient and that’s it.
This time around my application process is a little bit different. I apply it over the top of my moisturiser, rather than under it. If your skin isn’t overly dry I’d say using this alone, instead of a moisturiser, would be sufficient enough. If your skin is oily then it may be a bit too nourishing and a lighter oil might be more appropriate.
Did it sort my dry, winter ravaged skin out? It did, which is what I wanted but I’m not sure my changing skin could handle using it all year round. My skin isn’t as dry as it used be.
In the past I’ve used it on stretch marks, but these days I’m happy to let my stretch marks do their own thing. I still moisturise daily, but I don’t use products specifically designed to target stretch marks.
Overall, Trilogy Rosehip Oil is a lovely basic oil but it’s not the holy grail product I once thought it was.
