Having used Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil for eight weeks now, it’s time I review the product and also let you know how this product stacks up against Renew Certified 100% Organic Rose Hip Oil which I was using end of last year.
Facts on Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil
Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil is extracted from the seeds and fruit of certified organic, wild-grown rosehips and contains a powerful blend of natural nutrients including 80% essential fatty acids (oleic, linoleic and linolenic), vitamin E and the antioxidant lycopene, all well known for their ability to promote skin repair and rejuvenation of skin cells.
This organic rosehip oil is said to be most effective as a daily moisturiser for the face and body. On top of leaving skin feeling soft and hydrated all day long, Trilogy Rosehip Oil is supposed to help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, scars, ageing skin and damaged skin. In fact, results from the clinical assessment to test the efficacy of Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil after eight weeks of use reported skin moisture improved by up to 44%, while appearance of wrinkles reduced by up to 23% and skin smoothness improved by up to 21%.

I only use Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil in the evening as a nourishing overnight facial. While the clinical results on improving skin moisture and smoothness are true for me, I don’t see much of a reduction in terms of my wrinkles. However I feel a tightness over my skin everytime I apply Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil and I always wake up in the morning with soft and supple skin. In addition, like Renew 100% Organic Rose Hip Oil, Trilogy Rosehip Oil certainly helped to lighten new scars for me.
I cannot tell if Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil is finer than Renew 100% Organic Rose Hip Oil. They both feel the same to me but when applied on the face, I would concede that Trilogy’s feels less oily and is quickly absorbed. In fact, I could even apply moisturizer afterwards, something I wasn’t quite able to do with Renew’s.
Perhaps the most obvious difference between the two products is the smell. Despite the richer golden color, Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil doesn’t smell as strong as Renew Rose Hip Oil.
Both use dark glass storage with a tube dispenser and so they’re similar in that respect. However, Trilogy’s is 20ml while Renew’s is 15ml.
Let me first say that I like both products because my skin benefitted from using them. However, in terms of product quality, I would say Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil is more superior. If you’re into trying rosehip oil and your face is slightly oily, then I would recommend Trilogy over Renew. Then again, do note that Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil do cost more at S$30 for the 20ml bottle.
As a sum up, I’m giving Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil 4.5 hearts for keeping my face well nourished. The missing half heart is for no visible reduction in wrinkles.
In Singapore, you can find Trilogy’s range of products at Watson’s in Ngee Ann City and Raffle’s City.
