Why is it important to have a personalized skincare routine.These days the ‘no-makeup’ look is a trend.What makes this look so great is that- it requires just minimal amount of products and most products are multipurpose. When it comes to skincare its not the case. You can’t go for the ‘one product – fits all approach’ here.
With multiple raining products in the market, all much raved about products to treat various skin conditions/problems, it can be tempting just to use whatever products your friends/your favorite beauty gurus/bloggers are using or what products are the show-stopper ‘ultimate product at the moment’. While these might work well for certain people, there’s no guarantee they will work for you. Sometimes, you’ll just end up paying for a product that does nothing for you, but the worst case scenario could be that the product makes your skin worse, irritates it or even causes more problems.
In this post, I am going to talk about my current skin care routine. What I was using in the past, Why I am changing my skincare routine. What drove me to think about a change in my skincare routine etc. Tarte Maracuja oil is a much raved about product in the market. I also bought it – Read about my US haul here & here. Now, I was using Yves Rocher & Za & jergens products since more than 2 years along with different skincare masks like, korean sheet masks, face shop sheet masks, Gia bath & body and Juicy chemistry facial cleansers/scrubs/masks. My skin was pretty much clear and balanced because of the products that suited my skin a lot. However, When I moved to NZ, and when I emptied my Yves Rocher products, I couldn’t find any source to buy it. I decided to start a different skincare product. I know that all of the masks I use suited my skin a lot. Most of them where re-re purchases and I swear by those products. Now, you might be thinking what worsened my skin. Yes, its the Tarte Maracuja Oil that I applied on my face directly caused all problems. It was so good to use for my under eyes along with the tarte eye cream. I read some reviews where people raved about it and claiming its safe for use on face. Maybe it didn’t suit me. It gave the worst acne breakout of my life. Earlier, you take a look at my bare face, The only problem I faced was my hereditary ‘dark undereye circles rather hollows’. Now, I got red spots around my cheek area on both sides. Also the chilling weather in Auckland made my skin very dehydrated. I decided to change my skincare routine.
Take a look at the breakouts I have after using tarte maracuja oil directly on my face.
It was not an easy task, I had to research a lot about the problem/skin condition I am facing and I was in search of products designed to treat the problems associated with that type. I am telling you a little piece of information that I found while doing my research, For e.g, if you have oily skin, you’re likely to be dealing with breakouts, blackheads and blemishes and you’ll want products that will mattify your skin. On the other hand if you have dry skin then you’ll want to establish a routine which is ultra-hydrating and nourishing. If you have combination skin you’ll need to have products in your beauty arsenal which will tackle two problems at once – dryness and oiliness – where as sensitive skin types will need to pay close attention to the ingredients in their products.
I heard a lot about trilogy, trilogy rose hip oil products and I decided to check the product range. Being a rose fragrance lover myself, I decided to give it a try. Rates were also reasonable for my liking and I was planning to place an order. Now, the magical part, That afternoon I received a mail from trilogy PR asking my interest in reviewing their products. Wow, I was overwhelmed. When I had already done my research on- I send her my list of suggestions and on the same evening I received this super cute bag full of trilogy products. It came at a right time when all my skincare products were emptied/more than half emptied etc. I decided to give this a try and check my skin condition for a month. I have already taken a before picture and I am planning to post week by week response of my skin after using these products. So, I would be reviewing all of these products in this post separately. This is going to be an introduction to trilogy post where I am sharing with you all what are these products.
