New Skin Care Products - Trilogy Review

If you've read my blog before you'll remember I have very sensitive skin.  I'm very careful about what I use as the wrong product for my skin type can cause allergic reactions and psoriasis. 

A few months ago I had a pretty bad flare up, I'm not sure what caused it but as a result I cut out all SLS and Paraban products to give my skin time to heal.  I also wanted to avoid the medicated products that I have previously used as I don't want my skin to become to used to them and render them ineffective when I really need them. 

So, I was doing some research on line and came back to Trilogy Skin Care.  I had considered trying trilogy a few years ago but Clarins was working well on my skin and I decided not to rock the boat.  This time however I decided to give it ago. 

I ordered a Rosehip Oil serum  (20ml £19.99) and Vital Moisturising Cream (60ml £24.50).  I always find it best to patch test each item before use so I started with the  Rosehip oil and as I had no reaction to it I followed the on line advice and used this in place of a face serum.  After a week my skin felt great, it was clearer than it had been for a while and had a glow to it.   The inclusion of Rosehip oil products in my routine has the benefits of keeping my skin well hydrated which can be key to controlling my skin breakouts and allergic reactions.  Rosehip also has healing properties so is helping my skin to recover as well as recuperate from environmental and other damage.  

As I had no reaction to the oil I deiced to use it on my decolletage where I tend to suffer most from psoriasis.  It took less than a week for the oil to work it's magic and heal the break out on my skin.  After two weeks there was no trace at all of my skin sensitivity. 

The Vital Moisturising cream really impressed me. You don't need a lot for your skin to feel hydrated and refreshed and this also keeps my skin condition under control.  

After the success of these two products I am now trying they Trilogy Age Proof Active Enzyme Cleansing Cream (200ml, £27.50).  I'm using this in place of my Clarin's Cream cleanser.  Using morning and night, I massage in to my skin, even around the sensitive eye area and use a hot wash cloth to remove.  This works well at removing my make up - there is sometimes a little mascara residue but this usually comes off well with a softer second application.  

My makeup goes on better following these products and my skin has felt less irritated during this long hot summer.  

If your looking for a new skin care range I would definitely recommend giving this a try.

10 Things I Love about "It's Okay to Not be Okay"

It's Okay to not be Okay, started this past weekend on Netflix and TVN, produced by Studio Dragon, Story TV and Goldmedalist, it is a Romantic Drama a a whimsical fairy tale twist, staring Kim Soo Hyun in his first TV drama since returning from military service and Seo Ye Ji of Lawless Lawyer.

This is a show I've been looking forward to since it was announced and I have to say the pre show hype did not disappoint.

So two episodes in, here are the ten things I love about this show so far;

1.  Burton esq Whimsey

The show begins with a Tim Burton esq animation, reminiscent of the Corpse Bride and Nightmare before Christmas, with a twisted tale to match.  The dark fairy tale and graphic characters of the animation are carried through in to the illustrations of Ko Moon-young's (Seo Ye Ji) children's books

I love how the animation isn't dark which makes some of its darker themes all the more impactful.
It also sets up Ko Moon-young as a character beautifully, mixing he…

My Make Up Bag - Currently Trying - Clarins

Now, I’ve told you about my makeup journey, I used to use make up as a mask now I tend to use it to enhance my features.I’m no longer afraid of being seen without make up, but I do prefer to have a paired down routine rather than no makeup at all when I’m nipping out somewhere.
Currently I’m overhauling my makeup bag, chiefly because of my sensitivity I need to know what’s out there that works for me. Over the last two years or so I’ve altered my diet – I still eat too many cakes and biscuits but I tend to eat a lot more veg, and even grow it myself.I also try to eat more Organic food products as I find them more palatable and I find I feel better eating more cleanly.Mind you I still indulge so I’m not a complete saint but I try to find a balance between the two! Anyway, looking at my organic eating I decided I’d try and find something more Organic for my skin.So I started with Clarins skin care and I’m glad to report I’ve had no reactions to their skin care.I currently love;

Top 5 Romantic Comedy Korean Dramas

When you've binged watched on a little too much thriller and you're watching over your shoulder every time the door creaks its definitely  time to lighten the mood.  Romantic comedies are a light way to warm the heart with stories focusing on true love overcoming obstacles, with a chuckle or two along the way.  Who doesn't like falling in love, and romantic comedies give us that feeling, be it the levels of oxytocin rising as we connect on a deeper levelwith the characters or whether we're looking for that connection ourselves or maybe we just thrive on the feel good factor.
