If your skin runs to oily, I think that there is so much less choice in the way of lovely skin care. Oily and problematic skin types are constantly fire-fighting, often with ‘utilitarian’ products rather than luxury ones, so I’m really happy to see Trilogy Balancing Face Lotion, exactly for combination/oily skin. Trilogy Rosehip Oil (above) featured in one of my first ever beauty boxes, for very good reason. I haven’t met a Trilogy product yet that I haven’t liked, and it’s a brand that feels like it’s made with so much care and attention.Trilogy Balancing Face Lotion
Trilogy Balancing Face Lotion was formerly known as Energising Face Lotion, but that didn’t really tell the whole story about this product. Even though it contains oils – avocado, evening primrose and the Rosapene rosehip blend oil, along with ginko and green tea extracts, it’s feather light on the skin, meaning it feels anything but weighty and oily. Trilogy Balancing Face Lotion isn’t a new product, but I’ve had lots of queries from readers with oily or problem skin recently, so I thought it was well worth flagging up for the excellent nourishing action packaged in a light as air formulation (good for under foundation).
It’s worth noting that calendula is included to give anti-inflammatory action. There’s just no reason in 2015 why anyone with problem skin should be scouring the Boots shelves for the teen complexion products, when there is beautiful, grown up skin care like this to be had. It’s £26 HERE.

This on now on my wish list. My skin is so oily by dinner time it’s so depressing 🙁 think I’ll give this a go.. 🙂 thanks
Could you tell us who produces products for roseacea? It’s a struggle to find suitable moisturisers and foundations/BB cream.
I’m using a BB cream from korea at the moment by Missha, which covers really well, but I have no idea if its safe for skin like mine. It says it has skin whitening properties, what does that mean? Is it the colour of the cream, or am I inadvertently bleaching my already pale (under the blotchiness) skin?
Hi there.. in the UK we use the term skin brightening rather than whitening, which does sound rather scary. Missha is a reliable brand so I doubt you will be doing any damage – whitening or brightening products tend to be used to help reduce over-pigmentation. Think of Clinique’s famous ‘speckled egg’ ads. I hear good results from La Roche Posay Rosaliac in terms of products to try but don’t worry, that BB sounds fine to use xx
oh phew, thats such a relief, thank you!
I use missha because of the factor 50 sun factor in the cushion compact and also use the bb you have mentioned.I find them excellent for my sensitive skin and redness as I suffer from lupus and get rashes all the time not just with the sun,but stress and products ect.I really find it helps with taking the redness down a lot.
Also another great product is etude house a similar Korean brand to missha,they do a fantastic magic cushion range which have colours to combat redness like a green tinged bb magic cushion compact.scary to look at but really works on the red areas.and is super for oily skin too keeps you glowing but controls sebum.
thanks for the info beany boo, I might look up that magic cushion compact 🙂
I really need this. My skin is ridiculously oily. Thanks for the recommendation.
Thanks for the recommendation my skin is an oil slick by lunchtime so will get this as soon as my current Clarins oil control runs out
This actually sounds like it would work!! I wrote recently about Ingredients you should look out for if you suffer oily skin (http://www.beaucience.co.uk/2015/04/oils-for-oily-skin.html), Rosehip and Evening primrose being 2 of them. I make my own face oils and they have helped me no end!!
I recently discovered your blog & love it; I just wish I’d managed to get hold of your Clinique box! X
thank you so much x
