Review: Trilogy Cream Cleanser

 Product Description:
"With pure plant oils and extracts this cleanser delivers soft, clear, completely clean skin and gently removes eye make up.

This cleanser is a true beauty product; it does more than just remove makeup and impurities from face and eye. Its emollient action leaves skin supple and is the perfect preparation for your skin, morning and night. Includes nourishing Rosehip and Evening Primrose oils and Aloe Vera to moisturise and soften your skin." (from Trilogy website)
"This simple one-step purifying cleanser gently washes away make-up (including eye make-up) and impurities that can clog pores, without drying skin or disrupting its natural pH level. 

Rosehip and evening primrose oils provide the skin vital essential fatty acids and protective vitamins and antioxidants to help promote and maintain healthy skin Extract of aloe vera hydrates and tones skin while almond, jojoba oils and carrot oils gently soothe and nourish dry or damaged skin. Formulated without surfactants or foaming agents that can dry or irritate skin, skin feels smoother, softer and beautifully refreshed." ( from bottle description)
My Review:

I saw this Trilogy Cream Cleanser at Watsons and was very tempted to try it. I was very into the benefits of rosehip oil, and I thought it would be good to try Trilogy range of products as well.  The website and the bottle description both sound quite impressive and that is the reason why I bought this cleanser. But I have to say that this is really a disappointment. I have used half the bottle and decided not to continue using it anymore.

The biggest reason why I don't like this Trilogy Cream Cleanser is because the first time I used it, my skin felt a distinct burning sensation and it made my skin red. After experiencing this, I stopped using the Trilogy Cream Cleanser in case it worsened my skin. My skin went back to normal after a few hours and did not turn red using Fancl Washing Powder. After some time, I picked up this cleanser to try it again, it still gave me the same burning sensation.

I felt that the cleansing effects of the Trilogy Cream Cleanser is not very good. It claims to be able to remove makeup but I don't feel that the Trilogy Cream Cleanser cleanses thoroughly enough. It was not able to remove waterproof makeup, contrary to what the reviewer on the Trilogy website claimed. I usually use very light makeup - sunblock then a thin layer of bb cream or powder foundation (two-way cake).

I say that the cleansing power is not good because I always test how clean my skin is with the Clinique Clarifying Lotion, which is a mild exfoliant. If there is any yellowish or greyish colour, it means that my skin is not clean enough. If there is any beige colour, it is even worse, cos it means my make up was not cleaned off properly. With this Trilogy Cream Cleanser, my cotton pad was still coloured.

After cleansing, my skin did not feel tight but it did not feel nourished either. My skin also did not feel smoother, softer or beautifully refreshed as the description claims.

I think this cleanser is not worth its price and there are better cleansers around.

Rate: 2/5    Burning sensation when using cleanser, did not cleanse thoroughly and did not live up to its claims
