Skincare Review: Trilogy Vital Moisturising Cream

I must admit that until I purchased a subscription to InStyle magazine and received a free gift containing their products, I had never heard of Trilogy. However, I have been using their moisturiser (and cleanser, review to follow) since July and have been really impressed with it, so much so that I am considering purchasing more of their skincare items. 

The moisturiser I received was the Vital Moisturising Cream, which came in a really nice glass pot that looks lovely on the bathroom shelf.

The Trilogy website says this about the product;

"Our most popular daily moisturiser provides pure and immediate nourishment and hydration for all skin types.

Perfect for most skin types this ultra-nourishing cream deeply hydrates and protects skin. Made from a blend of 12 of nature's most beneficial botanical actives including Rosehip, Evening Primrose and Orange Flower, this lightweight and fast-absorbing cream assists healthy skin renewal and helps minimise signs of ageing."

Sounds great, yes? When I read the list of ingredients, I expected the product to have a lovely smell, but it is actually almost fragrance-free - not a bad thing, just not what I was expecting. The cream is quite thick, but sinks in incredibly quickly and doesn't leave my skin greasy - no mean feat as I have very oily (and sensitive, lucky me) skin. Immediately after application, my skin feels smoother and looks slightly brighter. I've had no breakouts since using it, which is excellent as moisturisers tend to give me spots or soreness. My only complaint is that when I wear it, my make-up doesn't seem to last as long as it does on days when I don't wear it. For this reason, I have been using this cream at night only.

It can be purchased from and costs £24 for a 60g jar (which lasts a long time).

I'd give this product a 4/5 and, as I said before, I'll be looking into other products in the Trilogy range in the next couple of months.
