Crush of the week...

Trilogy Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+

I have had a few late nights this bank holiday, but luckily, my skin doesn't show it, as I have been using the amazing  Trilogy Rosehip Oil Antioxidant +

Mirander Kerr recently revealed that the secret to her luminous glow is Rosehip Oil, so as you can imagine, bottles of this concentrated miracle oil have been flying off every beauty counter all over the globe.

Trilogy sells a bottle of its award winning £16.50 rosehip oil every 90 seconds!

This wonder product which originates from the seeds of a rose plant found in the Andes, brightens skin, evens out skin tone, smooths out fine lines and wrinkles, increases elasticity and firmness, and reduces the appearance of scars and burns. If you don't suffer from the latter, or are not too concerned with wrinkles, it's still an amazing product to use at night to achieve glowing skin, especially after a weekend of very little sleep.

 After using night creams for a few years, I wanted to try out a beauty oil as I have been reading that they are the next big thing in anti ageing. I had heard about the original Trilogy Rosehip Oil, so was keen to try out its newly launched power-house version, Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+ which is a powerful beauty oil for healthier, younger looking skin. It contains nourishing essential fatty acids combined with super antioxidants, lycopene and phytosterol. The  unique formulation Rosapene™ provides intense hydration plus daily antioxidant protection is deeply moisturising while helping to protect against environmental free radical damage. 

I have been usingRosehip Oil Antioxidant+ for a few weeks now and I can really see the difference. I apply a couple of drops of this magical oil to my face at night and wake up with fresh faced skin. My skin definitely looks more radiant, softer, healthier, and even younger.

It is a dry oil, and can be used day or night, but as its so concentrated, I would recommend using it before bed, so the magic happens while your skin goes into recovery mode.

 On that note, I am off to apply a few drops now.. Bonsoir!

Bright eyed and busy tailed, I managed to make it the Selfridges Beauty Project launch this morning. From 1 May, Selfridges are celebrating all definitions of beauty with an unprecedented campaign - The Beauty Project

The six weeks programme of inspiring events and interactive debates in association with Dove are taking place throughout the London, Birmingham, and Manchester stores.
