Trilogy Age Proof Nutrient Plus Firming Serum - review


As you may know, I bought a bunch of Trilogy products last year and I've been slowly working through what I have and reviewing each item in turn.

While I have found some things that I like, unfortunately I've discovered that Trilogy isn't my brand and the products don't work as well for me as they do for others (by comparison, Antipodes works a lot better for my skin).

Happily, though, I do like this serum and while I probably wouldn't buy it again because it's not perfect, I'm enjoying it and I reckon it's decent. More on that below.

Trilogy claims/product details:

  • A fresh and light formulation to instantly firm, brighten and tighten your complexion
  • Firm, lift and refresh with hyaluronic acid, licorice and Glycablend™
  • Soften fine lines and wrinkles with this nourishing pick-me-up
  • Moisture-attracting hyaluronic acid and aloe vera help plump the skin, while licorice and mulberry brighten
  • Potent Glycablend™ helps keep skin supple, healthy and radiant at any age
  • A light serum that's packed with powerful natural actives, to restore a more radiant complexion
  • An instant 'pick me up' to energise and brighten your skin
  • RRP $44.95 AUD for 30ml, but do wait for specials


I think this is a nice product and it's certainly a lot better than the Trilogy Rosapene Radiance Serum I tried a while ago (reviewed here). The Radiance Serum just didn't want to absorb, but this one does so it's done more for me.

It's a pale, lemon-coloured product with a sweet, herbal scent. When dispensed it comes out looking like a cream, but once you spread it, it thins out so it's almost like water in texture. This means that a little goes a long way, which of course means that it's good value on a price-per-use basis - especially if you can buy it during one of Priceline's big sales.

What I like about this is that it's very cooling and soothing when applied. It also leaves a thin coating on the skin that does have a slight firming effect and also adds some radiance, so I think the product has been named well.

Do note, though, that while it's a little hydrating, it's certainly not the most hydrating product I've tried and I know that it wouldn't be nourishing enough for me in winter when my skin's drier than it is now. So for me, this is more of a product for the warmer months - and I only use it in the morning because I like a more nourishing serum for night, plus I like how this one sits under makeup.

On the claims: yes this firms, brightens and tightens the complexion (at least a little bit); yes it's lightweight and refreshing; no I don't think it softens fine lines or wrinkles; yes it does plump the skin a tiny bit but not noticeably so in my case; and yes it helps my skin look healthier and more radiant.

Overall I think this is a decent product and I recommend it. While I wouldn't buy it if you have dry skin and need moisture more than anything else, it's been fine for my dry skin in summer and I do like using it in the mornings because it has a slight firming and brightening effect so it's a good wake-up call for my skin.

Worth trying.
