Perfecting the at-home Spa with Trilogy
As much as I love trips to the spa, I find that carefully curated bath essentials evoke the same relaxing and rejuvenating experience. These mini sessions at home are one of the simple joys that I regularly treat myself to. Being generally interested in all things beauty, I’ve dabbled in body care quite a bit–always eager to try the latest concoctions to come out on the shelves. Eventually, I found myself drawn to natural products or products made with natural ingredients. They’re much gentler on our delicate skin and I feel confident using them knowing they are safe and beneficial. This brings us to my latest beauty obsession, Trilogy’s new Body Care range boasting formulas comprised of plant-based oils (including their famous rosehip oil). Needless to say, they have easily become my favourite bathroom staples.
Today I’m trying out the new (MALIN + GOETZ) Dark Rum. This scented candle is quite unique. It’s warm and exotic and takes you to what I can only describe as an unfamiliar paradise. So relaxing. It actually pairs well with the products I’m using later on.
A good exfoliant is important for healthy skin, glowing skin. Trilogy Exfoliating Body Balm is a new twist on scrubs as it is also a body balm. This is perfect for my skin, which is on the drier side. I love how Trilogy came up with this product–I feel like it was made for me. Ground rosehip seeds gently exfoliate while it’s buttery blend of beeswax and sweet almond oil keeps moisture intact. There is a light citrus aroma which is pleasant and energising.
Aside from a face mask (my favourite being MV Organic Skincare Signature Mineral Mask), I also like to treat my hair to a rich oil mask. Davines OI/Oil’s key ingredient Roucou oil nourish the strands with antioxidants and protects the hair from sun damage. The result is soft and shiny locks.
Finally, prolong the luxurious spa experience at home with a moisturiser. Depending on your preference, this could be a body lotion or a body oil. I prefer body oils as they are easier to absorb and their hydrating properties are longer lasting on my dry skin. Trilogy Pure Plant Body Oil is all natural, fragrance-free, and richer in consistency–which I love as my skin just drinks it up. Apply while skin is damp to lock moisture in and you’ll be left with radiantly hydrated and glowing skin.
