Tried & Tested – Trilogy Blemish Control Gel
Fed up of spots? Want a natural solution that works quickly and effectively that doesn’t break the bank?
Aisling from our Arklow tried Trilogy’s blemish control gel and shared her thoughts below.
Although I can safely say I have purchased or trialled half of our products in store, I have to hand it to my favourite skincare product, Trilogy Blemish Control Gel! This gem is small but mighty and is really affordable for the amount of product you get. Just €14.95 for 20ml of spot-zapping, skin-clearing goodness. Everyone thinks spots will merely be old memories by the time they reach their 20s, when in fact, I have yet to meet a young adult who still doesn’t struggle with the odd zit!
This product works brilliantly for precise spot-treatment. During a flare-up, (hello ladies we all know when this occurs), I use it at night-time as the very last step of my skincare. I only need a tiny amount and simply dot it over the spots, wait for it to dry (which is super-fast) and then go sleep, which is the perfect time for your skin to do its reparative work. When I wake up there is a tiny film of product left, which has dried onto the skin, and just cleanse as normal and I’m ready to go.
The magic ingredient in here is “salicylic acid”, which I know doesn’t sound very natural, but don’t worry it is! It is a natural preservative obtained from the bark of the willow tree. You will find salicylic acid in most drugstore skincare products, but the problem with those products for me is the ingredients the accompany it like SLS which dries out my skin. Salicylic acid helps to unclog pores and prevent skin lesions as well as penetrating the skin for a deep clean.
The Blemish Control gel also contains ginger which works as an anti-inflammatory and an anti-septic; rose-hip, to repair the skin; and mandarin and lemongrass which are anti-bacterial and help prevent further breakouts.
I can always count on the Blemish Control gel to take care of inconvenient skin problems in a few days. And anything that works fast, lasts long, has natural ingredients and is affordable is a winner
