The product was provided by Healthy Directions, but all opinions are our own.
We came to Houston using our second jar of snail cream, but unfortunately we lost it…we left it in our rental car. This meant we had to get something soon–and quick. Otherwise we wouldn’t have any moisturizers to use! Luckily we had the opportunity to try out the Trilane Retinol+Vitamin C moisturizer, which has an amazing review on Amazon (4.6 stars)!
What makes this moisturizer interesting is that it’s an all-natural squalane beauty oil containing added benefits such as Vitamin C, retinol, and antioxidants that leave your skin smoother and brighter. This age-fighting and skin-renewing product claims to reduce fine lines, diminish brown spots, speed up natural cell turnover, and even protect against environmental stresses and damages…wow! That’s quite a hand-full of beauty benefits~
Moreover, squalane is something that your skin naturally produces, so it’s great for aging skin, as production of squalane decreases after you hit 30. Squalane oil doesn’t have any smells and isn’t as oily as most moisturizing oils. It’s good for sensitive skin as well~
So what did we think about this beauty oil and moisturizer? Unfortunately, it didn’t work out for us: we have combination skin–and our t-zone is particularly oily. This beauty oil caused us to break out: for me, on my forehead, and for Steph, on her cheeks and forehead. I’m guessing that since squalane is something the body already produces, the Trilane moisturizer was adding to much to our already oily t-zones.
Steph ended up not using this moisturizing, which helped the acne dry up. However, since my cheeks tend to get dry, I continued using the product on my cheeks, which made my cheeks glow with a healthy glow–it finally matches the glow of my forehead (haha, but not that much. Within a few minutes, y cheeks absorb some of the oil, making appear less oily).
I wouldn’t recommend this product for someone with oily and even combination skin…However, if you have dry skin, this product would be quite awesome for you. For those of you interested in trying this product, you can take 20% off the product with this code: SAVERETC.
Hope you all have a great rest of the week <3
