If you follow me for a while you must be know that Trilogy Rosehip Oil is basically a life changing product for me. That product is the product that made me converted to be an oil believer. Therefore, once they announced that they release this Trilogy No. 15 Limited Edition Beauty Oil for their anniversary in limited quantity, of course, as a fan, I am jumped in excitement. After much debate with myself, I finally purchased it last April in Brisbane.
Trilogy No. 15 Limited Edition Beauty Oil is a facial oil that helps repair the skin and protect against ageing and tissue damage caused by environmental free radicals to promote healthier and rejuvenated looking skin. The formula combines antioxidants from rosehip, cherry, goji, baobab oils with blackcurrant and mango oils. The addition of kukui seed oil helps protect against increased environmental pollution, while a nourishing blend of macadamia nut, papaya, apricot kernel and grapeseed oils work to deeply repair and replenish softness and elasticity. A dash of karanja, mustard seed, pistachio and passionflower helps support its natural protective barrier. The oil provides effective anti-pollution defence and protection against everyday environmental and oxidative damage to the skin. It is housed in a limited-edition amber glass bottle with gold dropper.
So, this is supposedly a limited quantity product. However, weirdly enough, it’s still sold everywhere back in April even months after their anniversary, lol. So, is it marketing gimmick or it’s just that good everyone keep asking to make this product to be their permanent lineup? Lol. I don’t know if it’s still available, though, but this oil is no longer available on their official website
It has gold packaging, definitely more exclusive rather than their original red packaging, and if I’m not mistaken, it’s also slightly more expensive than their original lineup. But is it way better than the original one?
In terms of texture, in slightly more liquidy than the original Rosehip Oil and it smells very, very nutty. That understandable since most of their ingredients are blends of macadamia nut, pistachio, etc. I have a feeling if you’re not a fan of the fishy smell of Rosehip Oil, this oil would be much bearable for you.
The first month that I use this oil, I treat this oil as facial oil. Meaning, I would like to use this oil as my last step of routine before moisturizer, to trap up all of my layers of skin care to make it adsorbed really well before I lock it further with my moisturizer. However, I don’t think that this oil work really well as ‘hydration trap’ for my skin, since I just never feel that this oil doing enough as hydration trap. Therefore, I treat it as serum afterwards. So I would like to apply this Trilogy No. 15 Limited Edition Beauty Oil before any Facial Oil that I apply afterwards.
Sadly enough, even after I apply it as serum, I didn’t feel that this serum is doing something noticeably different for my skin. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still way better than most of any anti ageing serum that I’ve tried. However, I expect more since everyone been loving and raves this particular facial oil.
It claims to give to helps repair the skin and protect against ageing and tissue damage caused by environmental free radicals to promote healthier and rejuvenated looking skin. While I don’t think that it gives me “rejuvenated looking skin”, but I do think that it certainly help to repair your skin barrier and protect it from free radicals, though.
So, do I love it? Well….. it’s just a so-so product for me. I don’t think that I would repurchase this one and maybe I would stick to the original Trilogy Rosehip Oil instead. However, since there’s a lot of people who swear by this product, and even practically begging Trilogy to make it permanent… I guess if you do spot it in your nearest pharmacies, drugstore, or online, I would say that please do give it a shot. Who knows, maybe it would work wonderfully on you!
