As a girl who is pretty true to her word I mentioned awhile ago in a post about Loving… Rosehip Oil that when I finished my bottle of A’Kin I would try Trilogy.
I had some time and a Priceline voucher and only a few days left of the A’Kin oil so picked up the Trilogy Rosehip Oil.
I always thought that they wouldn’t really differ…. boy was I wrong. I am officially converted and sorry to A’Kin but I am absolutely loving the Trilogy Rosehip Oil much much more.
This is what the Trilogy website says about their Rosehip Oil –
Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil has been clinically tested and shown to help minimise the appearance of wrinkles, smooth skin and dramatically improve skin moisture levels, leaving the skin’s appearance radiant and glowing. This lightweight, non-greasy, golden oil contains Omega 3, 6 & 9, essential fatty acids and antioxidants to restore optimum skin health.
To be honest all I really wanted was for my skin to not be dry anymore. This product has made such a difference. Keep in mind I was using the A’Kin Rosehip Oil up until I got the Trilogy brand. I found it really does differ between brands.
The way I use Rosehip Oil is I only use it at night, and I have been following it with a light moisturiser because my skin is suffering that much from the cold that I have to. In the warmer months when it’s calmed down a bit more I don’t think I’ll need to use a moisturiser afterwards.
The other difference I found was the appearance of my skin after. I go quite red and found that the Trilogy Rosehip Oil really reduced the redness to my skin… which is something I really take note of.
I have included some photos of both product. Take note of the difference in colour I found the A’Kin one actually made my skin look a little bit orangey when applied, it was also much more greasy whereas the Trilogy oil just sinks right into my skin and you can’t even tell i’ve applied anything.
There is a slight difference in size in the bottles. A’Kin is 23mls and Trilogy is 20mls
If you want to buy either of these products they are available at Priceline, Chemists and certain department stores. You will pick these both up for around $20AUD each.
As I mentioned in the post I needed a couple of things so waited until this came out so I could get the goodie bag (sorry I’m a sucker for samples etc!!)
I ended up buying the following – Revlon PhotoReady Makeup, Covergirl Lash Blast, Eco Tools Powder Brush… and they also had a deal where if you bought any Revlon face product you could choose a free eye product, So I picked up the Blackest Black Colourstay Liner Pen since i’m all into cat eye flicks lately.
So obviously I qualified for the freebie bag, here are some pictures of the big black bag and the contents. Then i’ll write everything down individually including sizes etc.
The bag itself is quite good, not one i’d take out as an everyday bag but to take my lunch to work in or for a flight this is perfect!

I apologise for not getting onto one of these last week. My boyfriend asks me every monday if I have something ready to post for “tight ass tuesday” (as he kindly refers to it) and honestly I haven’t been shopping enough!!
However I shopped my stash of products this morning and rekindled a love for a fragrance which you can generally buy if you shop around for $25-$50 (Chemist Warehouse usually has the best price)
Say what you will about Britney Spears (personally i’m a fan, even through all her crazy) but this fragrance is really pretty. When I wear it i’m instantly thinking if cupcakes were a fragrance, this would be it…. yes i know cupcakes have a scent but if they were a perfume with notes this is what they’d be.
The notes in this fragrance are red lychee, golden quince, kiwi, cupcake accord, jasmine, white chocolate orchid, musk, woods, and orris root… CUPCAKE ACCORD!! what is cupcake accord anyway??
If you’re a fan of Aquolina Pink Sugar you’d be a fan of ol’ Britters fragrance too. I find Pink Sugar to be a bit headachy though and overly sweet but Fantasy is just perfect a hint of sweetness with a slight floral note.
I’ve also smelt her “Believe” fragrance and thought that was also quite pretty. I should really pick that one up next time I see it on sale… FYI that has notes of exotic guava and golden tangerine, middle notes of honeysuckle and hints of linden blossom and base notes of patchouli wrapped in amber and pink pralines
IMPORTANT INFORMATION AHEAD!!!!
Priceline have 20% off storewide today and tomorrow (13th & 14th)
You may be able to pick up Fantasy even cheaper 🙂
We all love freebies right? I will also assume most of us enjoy shopping at Priceline too?
