Review: Trilogy Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+


The colder months are arriving soon, and even though it means hot chocolates, sitting in front of a fireplace (or in my case, a small electric heater) and snuggling up in bed- the harsh winds and cold weather really plays havoc with your skin. Having dry skin myself that tends to be tight and flaky at times, I really need a solution. I have been in love with rosehip oils since I first tried the Rose-Hip Vital Australian Certified Organic Cold Pressed Rosehip Oil and when it ran out, I decided to try the popular Trilogy rosehip oils. After contemplating whether I should buy the original Certified Organic Rosehip Oil or the advanced formula Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+, I decided on the latter. A few extra antioxidants won't hurt after all!



If you are a stranger to rosehip oil, you are missing out on a lot! Rosehip's potent oil is great for scars, stretch marks, ageing and dehydrated skin, and for making skin soft and supple. And for those afraid of an oil clogging up their pores and making them break out- rosehip oil doesn't do this! The Trilogy Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+ , retailing at $29.95, has super antioxidants lycopene and phytosterol in addition to the organic rosehip oil. Trilogy claims that it improves brightening, skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, elasticity and firmness- phew, what a whole lot of claims! I was quite excited to try this especially after reading all the benefits it will have on my skin.



First thing I noticed was that it didn't have any noticeable scent, which was a surprise as rosehip oil normally has a unique fragrance! After cleansing I usually apply a few drops on my damp skin, in particular the cheeks and chin, a tiny bit on my forehead and neck. I absolutely love it as it instantly makes my dry, tight skin feel moisturised and protected, as well as super soft. I allow the oil to sink into my skin and doesn't leave a greasy residue which is great! I finish my face routine by applying moisturiser and an eye cream on top for extra hydration.

I usually have flaky dry skin but after introducing rosehip oil to my routine it has improved dramatically! In terms of brightening and skintone, I haven't noticed much of a difference, however my skin has definitely been feeling firmer and softer. I think rosehip oil will be great for everyone and is quite inexpensive in comparison to facial serums on the market who offer the same benefits!


My only qualms about the Trilogy Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+ is that the oil sometimes leaks from the dropper, but I think I may have a faulty one as Trilogy has been known for producing great droppers. Besides that, this is an amazing treatment you can use on your face that is organic and free from chemicals, providing hydration and suppleness to the skin. I will happily repurchase this as it has been a life saviour for my skin.

Have you tried rosehip oil before? Which brands have you tried?

  1. Great review!! I've used this before but you make me want to try it again, especially for winter! It made my skin feel so nice & hydrated. I think it'd be nice to mix a couple of drops in with my body moisturizer, too. xx

  2. I haven't used this myself, but I've heard so many good things about it! I recently just bought one for my boyfriend to use on some of his scars on his forehead. Hopefully it will help to clear them up! :)

  3. This seems pretty good! I need something to remove my acne scars on my forehead. Do you think it would work fine on oily skin?

      I forgot to do a comparison to drug store powder but the chanel powder is better in terms of making your face matte for a good 7-8 hours and the finish is really nice, its rather silky. Whereas the Loreal Translucide Powder only lasts for 5-6 hours and then my face kinda starts to get oily.

  4. I still don't like the thought of rubbing oils on my face (i know so old school), but all this good talk lately - i just can't resist! might need to try this one since my skin is so dry and contaminated with scars at the moment.

  5. I've tried the original Trilogy Rosehip oil and I really like it! I'm actually using a couple of products to help with scarring so I don't know which one works better but I do love this for extra hydration and soft skin!

  6. I'm using the A'kin RHO at the moment and I am loving it for saving my dry skin! I haven't noticed any brightening effect, but now my skin is feeling smooth and soft and no longer dehydrated :)

  7. I've always been intrigued by these things but I hate the smell of Rose... I don't know if they actually smell like rose but I would assume so. Might check this out now that I know it doesn't have a scent!

  17. I've thought about picking this up but I'm using Antipodes Divine Face Oil at the moment, along with Josie Maran Argan Oil. And recently, Caudalie Divine Oil. I'm quite the fan of face oils :p The Antipodes does contain rosehip (along with avocado) so I know what you mean by making your skin softer and more supple. I think face oils do improve the texture of your skin and give a kind of softening/plumping/smoothing effect comparable to more expensive serums.

    1. I love face oils too! I can just feel it provide moisturisation and softness to my skin, and I love how they aren't as ridiculously priced as some serums, and that they are also more natural :)

  25. Reading this made me long for winter. It's summer here in the states and I hate it, it's too hot and I can't breathe.

    I've been thinking about a Rosehip oil for a while, I have chronic acne mixed with cystic acne and I have some little pink scars left. I think I'm going to go for it, this was a really great review and since I'm skincare obsessed I'll definitely be looking forward to reading more of your blog.

    1. Rosehip is amazing, and is perfect for all skin types! It definitely helps improves the look of scars and I love how moisturising it is on the skin. I agree with you about summer- sometimes it is just too warm and stuffy for my liking! Although sometimes I wish winter would end, especially on those cold mornings!
