It may be winter in Melbourne but it has been pleasantly sunny for the last week. No wonder we need SPF all year round in Australia! I recently scraped the last blob from my SPF daily moisturiser (only available in Asia) and was wondering how my face would survive when Trilogy Vital Moisturising Cream SPF15 literally landed on my doorstep. It’s the SPF version of the original Trilogy Vital Moisturising Cream – which I have not used before so I cannot compare the two…
What Trilogy Say
This deeply moisturising cream intensively replenishes all skin types and protects with a natural UV protection.
Evening Primrose, Marula and certified organic Rosehip oils hydrate and rebuild the skin whilst smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to reveal a beautiful, healthy-looking complexion.
Non-greasy and fast absorbing, it provides the perfect base for makeup application.
Although the simple packaging does not scream “buy me!”, I have to give it bonus points for the squeezy tube! Most day moisturisers are in a jar which involve the unhygienic practice of finger-dipping. (Who knows where your fingers have been?)
Slightly too thick for my liking so it requires a bit of rubbing for the white cream to blend into my skin although it hydrates well. Initially, I was not a fan of the somewhat sticky residue which stays on your skin all day but I have become accustomed to this.
After daily usage of Trilogy Vital Moisturising Cream SPF15 for 3 weeks, my skin feels indifferent, i.e. not better nor worse. I haven’t noticed any changes in my fine lines. As a make-up base, it performs quite well but I still prefer using a separate primer – although waiting time to apply primer after moisturiser has increased as I don’t feel that this Trilogy cream absorbs quickly enough and my face still feels very tacky after 5 minutes…and it remains like that all day. But I guess it’s better that it feels moist rather than dry, right?
What I Like : Tube packaging
What I Dislike : Needs a higher SPF, sticky residue
The Best Beauty Blog Rating : 7 out of 10 – worth trying out Trilogy Vital Moisturising Cream SPF15 if you’re looking for hydration during the day, but give it a miss if your skin is oily already.
