Trilogy Very Gentle Cleansing Cream


When my Antipodes Grace Cleanser came to an end, I was curious to see if there were similar natural brands out there marketing products specifically for sensitive skins. Trilogy is well known for their Rosehip products but I noticed they have a Very Gentle line so I bought the cleansing cream.

I honestly have enjoyed using this morning and evening. My skin looks fresh and soft after use and I have not experienced any irritation (remember to patch test). I apply to my face and remove with a damp muslin cloth. I am satisfied it removes my mineral foundation with ease. If I follow with toner and a cotton pad, it will have minimal traces of makeup on it. This cleanser is fragrance free so there are no added essential oils but it does have a very mild scent from the ingredients. In terms of consistency, it reminds me of the Pai cleanser. It does contains some nice ingredients - camellia, avocado, almond, evening primrose and green tea - all of which are ideal for those prone to reactions. The downside for some will be that Trilogy preserve their products with Phenoxyethanol where as Antipodes and Pai do not. UPDATE - it has come to my attention that Trilogy have repackaged, reformulated and have removed Phenoxyethanol from this product. I unknowingly had an older version and wasn't aware when writing this review.

I think Trilogy Very Gentle Cleansing cream is a nice product. Would I buy it again? I am sitting on the fence mainly because of the fragrance or lack of it, this one can feel a little bland at times. Nothing wrong with that but sometimes fragrance plays an important part in my well being. Of course I understand that not everyone can tolerate essential oils which is why this product is ideal for that purpose. Trilogy Very Gentle cleanser is on a par with Pai and Antipodes, they are almost identical in terms of how they look, what they offer to the consumer, value for money and performance. 

If you like a complimentary skincare routine the range also includes a Calming Fluid and Moisturising Cream. Trilogy is widely available on many websites and the RRP is around about £22.50. 

Have you tried this cleanser or any other Trilogy products?

  1. It sounds really nice. Trilogy isn't available in Canada (directly) but I've been curious about the range for a very long time. Xo

    1. There is a lot of love for the Rosehip products, I'm surprised to hear you can't get hold of it in Canada

  2. I have a mini tube of this hiding somewhere, will have to get to trying it soon :) Not sure if it's been reformulated (there's new packaging now I believe), but mine does not contain phenoxyethanol. I'm also excited to learn that some Antipodes' products are without phenoxyethanol, as I've always mostly written off their line for that one ingredient!

    1. I just had a google and I have read about new packaging, to best of my knowledge Antipodes is free from phenoxyethanol, certainly the products I use don't contain it and I've not noticed when browsing their other products :)

    2. Antipodes must have reformulated in the last couple years too then. I double checked a sample of the Vanilla Day Cream that I have, which does contain phenoxyethanol, but I don't see it listed in current ingredients for that product, or any of their others anymore. Good news!

  3. I have been waiting for this review. It does sound like a good basic cleanser. Might give it a try as my skin is horrible at the moment and trying to strip my skincare back to basics. X

    1. I think you have hit nail on head there with "good basic" sorry to hear your skin is being a mare but I think this would be good if you are stripping back :)

  4. Ive never really looked at Trilogy products in much detail, I definitely want to try the Pai one though. I'm the same as you, I do like a bit of a fragrance as it encourages me to want to use the product more.

    1. I have not seen phenoxyethanol in any of the Antipodes products I use, but you could always clarify with the company themselves if you have concerns :)
