Remember the days when you were just a young whippersnapper, not a care in the world and still wearing underpants with the days of the week printed on them (oh wait, you still do? Ooops, sorry!) Those were the days, huh?
Those were also the days when skin care was simple. Multitasking was the name of the game, one product did it all and once you’d found it, you couldn’t live without it.
I think I’ve found a modern-day equivalent. A multitasking superstar, packed full of impressive and hard-working ingredients – no room for slackers in this formulation.
Trilogy’s Everything Balm is exactly that. The multi-purpose moisturiser will nourish lips, nails and cuticles, dry patches on hands, knuckles (cold weather problems!) cracked heels, dry elbows and knees, in fact, dry patches on skin anywhere. Warm it up in your hands and it becomes a sublime massage oil, and you can even use it to tame the dry ends of flyaway hair.
It smells delicious, due to the powerful ingredients including marula oil, jojoba, honey and Vitamin E. There’s even olive and avocado oil – it really does smell almost good enough to eat.
My favourite way to wear it is as a finishing touch after style my hair, so that every time you flick your hair, you surround yourself in the gorgeous scent.
It’s £12.50 from their website, www.trilogyproducts.com
Oh, and I love the cute packaging too, don’t you?
