I tried Triny London's comprehensive skincare routine, here's how to get your money's worth






Trinny London is your best enzyme cleanser, £32. First off, Be Your Best smells amazing, with a soft fruity aroma. This is thanks to key ingredients: pineapple enzyme, which has gentle exfoliating (and therefore brightening)


properties, and sweet almond, borage and flaxseed oils, which nourish the skin. To maintain skin balance, a prebiotic complex is added. The formula was originally an oil-based balm. The brand recommends massaging two pumps into

dry skin to dissolve makeup


SPF, and remaining dirt, then adding water to form a creamy consistency that can be massaged into skin with a warm muslin towel (the brand sent me their T-Towel , priced at £10, trial). I'm already a big fan of this brand's

skincare packaging. You don't have to put your fingers in the pot - just turn, pump and go. It's also great for traveling. (I stayed in it several times during testing and didn't spill anything.)


Two pumps are enough for light makeup on your face, but to remove your entire face of foundation, concealer, blush, eyeliner, eyeliner, mascara (waterproof), and brow gel, you really need four to five pumps. The pump suppresses

everything. Given the intense massage I absolutely must do, especially in my sensitive eye area, I'll probably stick with my go-to Pai Light Work Cleansing Oil (£33), which removes stubborn makeup with ease. I feel like it


nourishes my dry skin better. I leave the Be Your Best fragrance on for my second cleanse and when I wake up in the morning - I really like the scent and it hasn't irritated my skin or left me feeling dry.

Trinny London Tiptoe PHA Leather, £34. Normally, my skin is pretty clear except for a few hormonal spots, but I often get annoying little white spots and blackheads around my nose. After a few weeks of using it as recommended


(initially pumping twice a week, then switching to nightly use as my skin got used to it), I noticed a noticeable difference in my skin. It's brighter, clearer and my pores are less noticeable. It's all thanks to a clever

combination of PHA (polyhydroxy acid, a mild acidic exfoliant) and azelaic acid, plus hydrating glycerin to soothe, soothe redness and irritation. Both are ideal for people with sensitive skin or those who are new to exfoliating


acids. Trinny London has once again thought about portable skincare - you don't have to use a cotton pad to apply (like many exfoliants), just your fingertips. Trinny London Plumping Peptide HA Serum, £65

There are a lot of benefits here: Hyaluronic acid and peptides are essentially skin-strengthening proteins that are crucial for dehydrated skin. Together they aim to increase our skin's natural collagen and elastin production


and plump the skin. I haven't seen a difference in my fine lines yet and I think it will take me longer to notice these products, but I love the way it feels on my skin. The gel formula absorbs instantly and doesn't leave a

sticky feeling on the skin.


Instead, it's baby soft. I prefer creamy serums, like Charlotte Tilbury Magic Serum Crystal Elixir, £65, so it took me a while to get used to it. I've started switching between the two, especially at night and when my skin needs

extra moisture.


Trinny London Boost Up 30% Vitamin C Serum, £65. With a whopping 30% Vitamin C, this serum is one of the most concentrated I’ve ever tried. The brand's website states that it should only be used by experienced skin care users.

I already use Vitamin C daily, and as per the brand's recommendations, I did a patch test before using it on my face. Now, after two months of using it every morning, I can definitely see a difference. My skin looks brighter


and more even-toned especially on my cheeks, which tend to get red when my skin is particularly dry and sensitive. It has a slight chemical smell that I don't like, but I use it for glowing skin.

Trinny London Overnight Clarity Retina/Nicotinamide Serum, £62 You may be familiar with retinol. However, experts believe that Retinal is more effective, renewing skin and promoting new collagen production up to 11 times faster


in some cases. Compared to the few retinols I've tried, Trinny London's Clarifying Overnight Serum didn't irritate my skin. After using it a few times a week (no more than twice to be safe), my skin looks more radiant.

The old acne spots faded so quickly and were almost gone (I was worried I was a neurotic acne-prone person), and with tiptoe exfoliation, the clogged, greasy pores around my nose became clearer and the breakouts cleared up Less.


Warning for newbies: This stuff has a bright yellow tint and will stain your face the first time you use it. However, this phenomenon disappears after a night's sleep. Be sure to wear SPF sunscreen when using Retina as it can

make your skin more sensitive to UV rays. Trinny London Bounce Back Intense Peptide Moisturizer, £49 Since I have dry skin, I take moisturizer very seriously.


Bounce Back is a lightweight moisturizer that's scented (slightly fruity and sweet) and enriched with Trinny London's Tetra-Peptide Complex and hyaluronic acid to replenish skin's natural moisture barrier. Daytime is great for

me. It absorbs quickly and creates a nice, slightly sticky base that makeup adheres to well. I love moisturizing my skin at night, especially as we leave winter behind and enter spring.


So I stick with my usual Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream, £79, which is thicker and creamier. final thoughts My favorite Trinny London skin care products: Boost Up Vitamin C and Overnight Clarity serums are the winners in my

opinion. These products made the most significant difference to my skin during testing. Trinny London skincare products I'd probably put on the shelf: The Be Your Best Enzyme Cleanser is easy to use and smells lovely, but it


doesn't make my makeup disappear as easily as I'd hoped. What Trinny London wants to do next: I would love it if the brand launched an eye cream, especially since none of the products I tested irritated my sensitive skin, which

is especially temperamental around my eyes.
