Trilogy Face Care cream cleanser

I remember when I first decided I was going to set up a natural beauty blog. It had been on my mind  for a while so I’d started tearing out ads for natural products from magazines and bookmarking things online that I thought I might want to review. The first thing I tore out to save was an ad for Trilogy Face Care cream cleanser. Funnily enough, eighteen months later I never got around to purchasing it. But when I was offered the chance to try some products by the folks at Apostle I spotted this and decided it was about time I tried it!

I’ve been using this cleanser for a couple of months now so have given it a good and long trial. And the verdict? It’s a great cleanser. I wouldn’t say it’s the best cleanser I’ve ever used but I do like it a lot. The consistency is a light cream which is dispensed from a pump at the top of a brown glass bottle. It effectively removes makeup, including eye makeup, and dirt quickly and thoroughly, without stinging or irritating, although I find I need two or three pumps at least to clean my skin completely. I use this as I do most cream cleansers – apply to dry or damp skin, massage in, and use a warm, damp muslin cloth to remove. My skin is always left feeling completely clean and soft. What I love about this, and other cream cleansers, is that you’re never left with tight or dry skin after rinsing.

Trilogy cream cleanser contains some lovely ingredients too: organic rosehip oil, evening primrose oil, almond, carrot seed and jojoba oils, aloe vera leaf extract, grapefruit seed extract (which I happen to take as a supplement if I’m ill or coming down with something as it’s antibacterial and helps support the immune system) amongst many more. There aren’t any nasties in here either such as parabens and it smells very pleasant. See the full ingredients below.

Aqua (Purified Spring Water), Glycerin, Rosa Canina (Rosehip) Seed Oil, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Cetearyl Wheat Straw Glycosides & Cetearyl Al, Cetearyl Alcohol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Oil, , citrus aurantium amara (bitter orange) flower, Xanthan Gum, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf, Polysorbate 20, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Parfum, Citral, Geraniol, Citronellol, Limonene, Linalool, *Components of Natural Essential Oils

The one thing I don’t really like about this cleanser is the packaging. Visually it’s fine but the glass bottle has its drawbacks. For one, it’s not good for travel and I also feel nervous about keeping it on my bathroom sink in case I send it flying and shattering onto the floor or bathtub (as I did not long ago with a Neal’s Yard glass bottle, sadly). It’s also difficult to get the bottom bit of the product out of the bottle as it stops pumping effectively as you get about four-fifth’s of the way down and since you can’t squeeze it out, it’s a bit stuck. But glass is better for the environment and for protecting the product so it’s a toss up of priorities really.

All in all, I’ve enjoyed using this cleanser. It comes as a close competitor to my other favourite cream cleansers – Liz Earle, Green People and Pai Skincare – although the packaging does let it down slightly and in terms of overall performance the others also just have the edge. Nevertheless there’s no doubt it’s a good product that cleanses thoroughly yet gently and would be suitable for all skin types.

Trilogy cream cleanser costs £22.50 for a 200ml bottle, available online at Apostle. If used once a day as I do it should last between 2 and 3 months.

  1. Thank you for your review. There seem to be a lot of nice natural ingredients in this cleanser but I was wondering whether it is suitable for sensitive combination skin.

  2. I love the natural ingredients that you have listed! But I do hate it when it is hard to get the last bit out of the bottle.

    Still, it looks like a good choice for a cleanser.

  3. Thanks for your initiative on natural help. You don’t how many like us searching for a solution all the time.

  4. Hi. So happy I found your blog I am from Denmark so sorry for my english. I had acne once and now i am suffering from red scars, so I can tell you they are “new”, I have tried like EVERYTHING and the last thing I have bought is “HEAL GEL” which shound be popular in the UK, but nothing helps..
    Is there anything you can recommend?

  5. Thanks for the article. Trilogy is new to me and I love to find new products on the market. You did a great job on the review.

  6. Very interesting product in that it uses a different mixture of oils and that Vitamin E is listed up there as well towards the middle. Its harder to find quality cleansers these days that are mainly sulfates

  7. Hi There,

    The market offers variety of promising facial cleansers and truly it’s really hard to find the one that would perfectly work on our skin. I would definitely go for organic natural ingredients/contents and in that case yours is worth the try. Basing on the comments and feedbacks, I must say that I’m excited to try it. I’ll check your posts to find more interesting ideas/products.

  8. I used to love Trilogy – sigh – then I got pregnant and now only have the energy to run a cleansing wipe over my face before falling into bed!

  9. One bottle enough for 2 to 3 months? That’s good. Lots of beneficial natural ingredients, too. This is something to check

  10. I�ve tried a lot of different types of cleaners, it�s not always easy to get the right one. But I will definitely checkout your suggested one soon. Thanks for sharing your ideas.

  11. My skin certainly benefits from a good quality cleanser and better still if the ingredients used are all natural.

  12. Sometimes it is hard to chose from many. Thanks for this detail review. You really help me choose what i need.

  13. I love this article. It is just down our street as all the products we create are 100 % natural ingredients. Heres to natural cosmetics and skincare!

  14. Wow, Trilogy seems to be really interesting.I would definitely give it a try. I am researching anything good for the skin.

  15. I might try this for my daughter. She is 16 and having trouble finding a cleanser that does not cause her any skin problems, the ingredients look encouraging.

  16. I like the fact that this cleanser contains organic natural ingredients and that it doesn’t contain any alcohol (unfortunately some natural skin care products do ). It contain alcohol, which really dries out the skin and contribute to premature aging). It sure sounds like a very good cleanser for sensitive skin.

  17. I’ve tried a lot of different types of cleaners, it’s not always easy to get the right one. But I seem to react well to certain active ingredients like Aloe vera, so I love anything that soothes as it cleans.

  18. so important isnt’ it to find a cleanser you really like that removes everything. I activated my Celgenics cleanser with vibrational information to work on the lymphatic system. I think it works well!
