Trilogy is all about rosehip oil. Co-founders (and sisters) Sarah Gibbs and Catherine de Groot saw changes in their own skin after trying it, and decided to build their company’s entire product line around this single ingredient. Since then, their certified organic rosehip oil (which they extract and manufacture in-house) has been clinically proven by an independent research lab to improve the visible appearance of scars, stretch marks, and wrinkles.
I’ve written about the company and its products before, including a Q&A with Sarah Gibbs and this post about Trilogy’s commitment to helping save orangutans. But I hadn’t done a full-on Beauty Obsession post—and I’m not sure why, because I’m definitely a fan.
So when Beautorium.com asked me test out Trilogy’s new beauty oil, I didn’t hesitate.
What I tried: Trilogy Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+, $36*
First impressions: Since I’ve used Trilogy’s rosehip oil in the past, I already know that it’s extremely moisturizing, does a good job of balancing oily or combination skin (like mine), and is gentle on sensitive skin. This new product adds a few ingredients to the base of rosehip oil: antioxidants from tomatoes (lycopene) and acai berries (phytosterol), plus additional omegas 3 and 6 from cranberries and oat extract. (There’s also sunflower seed oil and caprylic/capric triglyceride.) Just as with Trilogy’s original rosehip oil, this blend feels luxurious and smooth on my skin—and sinks in quickly.
What caught me by surprise: This oil has a muskier scent than its rosehip-oil-only cousin, and it’s a bit of a deeper color, too. I credit at least some of the color and scent to the tomato seed oil, which on its own has a deep orange color and smells a bit like a ripe tomato.
