The day when I used my Trilogy Everything Balm wrongly :p

IMG_2891

Last week I talked about using Trilogy products in my skin detox period and I left out the review of Trilogy Everything Balm because I want to do a dedicated review for it. I got this balm from a GWP and it’s only 5ml in size. During the skin detox period I used it as a cleanser.

It’s basically a thick balm that when you spread it out to your skin it melts away and even with only a dollop of it, it able to removes the most stubborn mascara and heaviest foundation. I’m swoon. I love the scent that is much nicer than the oil. Way nicer.

The balm is really thick and reminds me of Eve Lom and Bobbi Brown balm cleanser that you need to flannel off because water will just slide. After a week of using it as PM cleanser for the first cleanser, I still have half tub left. Do I love it? Yes. But …. there’s a but …

First Love: Trilogy Rosehip Oil

Trilogy Rosehip Oil is my first love when it comes to facial oil. Not a day goes by that I thank Lena for introducing me to this wonderful concoction of Rosa Canina Seeds oil – in other word, the wonderful Rosehip oil. Trilogy is my go to brand for  anything Rosehip related. Back in the days this is quite a famous brand because it has the endorsement of celebrities. Upon trying this product, I can see why those celebrities put their sign of approval in this brand because it’s really that good.

What does Rosehip oil do? It helps to heal scar, which means if you have any nasty scar from post acne battle, this will help significantly. It makes your skin appear brighter but I think this is due to your skin condition to be at its good condition and well hydrated so all in all it appears more radiant. Also, it makes your skin feel plumper.

During my skin detox, I used products from Trilogy because they work and they don’t have complicated ingredient list. It’s a tight-knit lot that works effectively with each other.

What you can buy from Ben Scrub

In an attempt to provide information for my readers, I’ll do a series of informative ‘shopping destination’ on where to buy skincare products that I’ve posted on both my Instagram and in this blog. If, they’re available here in Indonesia.

I first came across Ben Scrub because I was searching for any Instagram or Online shop that sells Australian skincare product. I get most of my stash directly from Australia when friends are travelling to the down under. Much to my surprise, most of the new skincare that I’ve tried so far have been mind blowing so I keep recommending them. Case in point, the brand Antipodes and Goodness, they’re both terrific brands.

So Ben Scrub becomes my go to destination for all Australian skincare, also bath and body products. I’ve also convinced him to add one product that I’m head over heels!

So here are five things that you can purchase at Ben Scrub.

My Skin Detox Routine

As I’ve promised before on the post about detox for the skin, now I want to show you how I incorporate the products into my skincare routine.

As I mentioned before, the principal is to keep it simple. I chose the product from Trilogy because they work for me, simple enough and they provide enough hydration.

However, these steps below can be simplified even more. I’ll explain later at the end.

The first day, I still want to incorporate my heavy duty acid because I don’t want my skin to go without any active at all. So I picked the Biologique Recherce P50. The steps for the AM routine are: Continue reading “My Skin Detox Routine”

Detox for the skin

I must admit, I’m one of those people who sparingly use the word ‘detox’ for a cleanse period for anything under the sun – from food to skincare. The reason is because it’s one word that people seem to have the same conception or misconception on. It’s easier for you to explain a cleanse period with ‘detox’. It’s the word du jour.

So what am I talking about exactly when I’m talking about detox for the skin?

As you might all aware my skincare routine is not one you can take lightly. In fact it’s based upon layers and layers of product application. I change my arsenal every so often to accommodate the change in my skin condition. I walk the talk. When I said ‘listen to your skin’, it’s all based on personal experience. Knowing exactly the slightest change in your skin and adapt to it has benefit my skin.

However, there are times when I need to hibernate. In a way that I need to simplify things. Cutting down the steps and getting back to basic. This is what I call detox for the skin.

October empties!

I’ve posted several empties on the Instagram but just realised that I haven’t done that regularly for the blog. Especially considering that #missionempties was a big part of my skincare routine couple of weeks back. Another reason is because last month’s empties contain some of my HG products so they deserve their own post.

First of the lot, Menard Lisciare Cleansing Cream. No need for introduction this one and the whole Lisciare range definitely a HG skincare line for me. I particularly love this cleanser because it’s cream so it feels great on my dry skin, it turns oily in no time and it has that grip and slip that I needed to cleanse my entire face. Unlike it’s younger sister Tsukika range, this cleanser removes even the most stubborn mascara at ease if you massage it thoroughly around the eyes. It’s also easier to remove it with water. This is probably my third or fourth tube and I already have one spare in stock.
