Let me start off by saying that both my editor, and the new Princess of Wales are both huge fans of Trilogy’s roseship oil, so when I found out that they had just launched a line of serums, I just had to try them out for myself. If you are new to the brand, Trilogy was established in 2002 by two Kiwi sisters, Sarah and Catherine, and it is one of the pioneers in pure natural plant oils and clean beauty formulations.

In 2012, Trilogy became the first New Zealand brand to achieve the NATRUE Natural Cosmetics certification (NATRUE is an independent not-for-profit association committed to promoting and protecting natural and organic cosmetics worldwide), and today, they are New Zealand’s No.1 skincare brand with over 50 NATRUE-certified products.

High-quality rosehip oil is naturally rich in skin-loving nutrients which help improve overall skin health. It is a great source of essential fatty acids (Omega 3 and Omega 6), fatty acids (Omega 9) which are vital to the health of our skin.

Trilogy’s rosehip oil is globally recognised for its performance and quality –  in fact, a bottle of its rosehip oil is sold every 25 seconds. Sourced from the wilds of Africa and South America, the rosehip oil is harvested by local communities and the oil is extracted through a gentle, cold-pressed method with no chemical intervention. 

If that doesn’t get you excited to try the products yourself, I honestly don’t know what will. Anyway, moving on, Trilogy recently launched three new additions to their ultra-popular Rosehip Collection – AHA Resurfacing Serum, Antioxidant+ Defence Serum and Microbiome Complexion Renew Serum. The products in this collection is suitable for all skin types, including acne-or oil-prone skin, and is also safe for use during pregnancy. 

AHA Resurfacing Serum, 30ml/$79.90 – this is a daily-use refining and smoothing serum for all skin types to promote rapid renewal for smoother, even and brighter skin.

With ingredients like Lime Pearl™ to gently and effectively exfoliate the surface of the skin, to target dullness and uneven skin tone. Prickly pear for exfoliation, hydration and antioxidant support, and vegetal hyaluronic acid to retain moisture, and aloe vera to cool and hydrate the skin. This serum is also said to be a great base for make-up.

Antioxidant + Defence Serum, 30ml/$79.90 – is a cocktail chockfull of powerful antioxidants. This lightweight, milky serum helps to defend the skin against the signs of ageing, to promote a more radiant complexion. I personally tried this product, and loved the texture, loved how it felt on my skin, and how my skin looked and felt after using it.

If you are not a fan of heavy skincare products, you will love this. It protects, heals, soothes and just leaves your skin looking nourished.

With active ingredient like French maritime pine -known to be rich in antioxidant compounds that helps enhance the skin’s ability to produce more hyaluronic acid and collagen, combined with Rosapene™ which helps to nourish and hydrate as it visibly brightens and firms the skin, together with Hibiscus flower extract which helps to rejuvenate as it purifies the skin. 

This serum is also suitable for all skin types, and leaves skin feeling smoother, and the complexion more radiant.

Microbiome Complexion Renew Serum, 30ml/$79.90 – this unique formulation works with your skin’s natural microbiome (good bacteria) to promote a healthier, smoother and more youthful complexion. It helps to build skin resilience, balance and vibrancy. Ultra-lightweight in texture, this serum provides the perfect daily base for additional skincare products and make-up. 

A Sustainable Beauty Brand

At Lifestyle Collective, we strongly believe in supporting brands that are sustainable, green, cruelty-free, and responsible. Which is why we are proud to support Trilogy, which recently underwent a sustainability audit that sparked thoughtful and responsible packaging improvements. These improvements support the brand’s authentic dedication to reduce plastic waste and ensure that their products are made from materials that can be recycled. 

Their sustainability-responsible improvements include:

• Plastic free beauty tool: 208,000 plastic spatulas are switched to bamboo each year
• Replacing plastic with glass: 100,000 plastic tubes and bottles changed to glass
• Introducing PCR plastic: 60% post-consumer recycled plastic (PCR) replaced their virgin plastic bottles and tubes 
• Glass improvements: Frosted treatments and paints are removed from all glass to reduce production processes
• Sustainable Cartons: All cartons are certified by PEFC Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification.

Trilogy offers a comprehensive range from the best-selling Rosehip Oil and Rosehip Collections, to the Brightening Collection, Ageless Collection, Sensitive Collection, Balancing Collection, Ultra-Hydrating Collection and Body Collection.

All the product formulations are researched and ingredients are hand-selected with purpose with the inclusion of at least one to three of New Zealand’s native ingredients such as Manuka honey and rosehip seed oil. Mineral oil free, sulphate free and proudly made in New Zealand, all Trilogy’s products are gentle enough for sensitive skin types.
