Trillium Organics Review and Giveaway
As part of my effort to get our organic lifestyle out of the kitchen and into the personal care area, I was given a great opportunity to try Trillium Organics skincare products. At Trillium, they exclusively include ingredients which are both beneficial to the skin and safe for the health of the whole body. From body polishes to soaps and everything in between, Trillium Organics provides high quality organic skincare for mama and baby alike.
The Hype: Helps to reverse and extreme dry conditions. Soothe, nourish and protect skin to promote healing. This creamy rich blend of Cocoa and Shea butter is soft, smooth, and readily absorbed. It is vegetarian, USDA certified organic, gluten free and paraben free and available in 10 scents.
My Take: I received my body butter in the pink grapefruit scent, which is delicious enough to want to sink my teeth into. Now, let me tell you — you know that store in the mall that sells body butter? This is nothing like that. This truly has the consistency of a container of butter, not just a glorified whipped cream. It’s awesome, and because of it’s truly buttery thickness, it has great staying power.
Organic Body Polish
The Hype: Gently exfoliating salt crystals de-congest the dermis, stimulate cellular regeneration and leave skin moisturized and smooth with a deep radiant glow. It is vegetarian, USDA certified organic, gluten free and paraben free and available in 10 scents.
My Take: My daughter has suffered from keratosis pilaris (KP or “chicken skin”) on her arms since she was a toddler. Basically it’s a lot of angry little bumps that look icky. There are creams and stuff out there for it, but at this point there isn’t any actual medical treatment other than repeatedly smoothing out the skin - it becomes a maintenence kind of thing. This body polish did a great job of smoothing down her arms, and the sweet orange scent was a bonus. If it works on her KP, I’d bet it works on just about any rough spot you throw at it.
Organic Botanical Soap
The Hype: Traditionally Saponified Organic Olive, Jojoba and Coconut Oils, enhanced with skin nourishing Aloe and richly scented with Organic Essential Oils. It is vegetarian, USDA certified organic, gluten free and paraben free and available in 10 scents.
My Take: This is a wonderfully thick soap gel that lathers up into big scented bubbles. I received this in lavender geranium, which smells lovely. I’m not a huge fan of lavender, so I won’t go all bonkers about the scent (if you’re into lavender, you’ll like it. See? Easy.) However, the soapy properties of this were great. My skin felt wonderful… and well, lavender geranium scented.
Oil Free Face Polish
The Hype: This purifying treatment gently cleanses and tones the skin. Gently bringing balance to the skin, it can be used a daily wash, or left on more acute breakouts for up to five minutes for a more intense purification treatment. With tea tree oil and witch hazel.
My Take: My daughter and I were trying to bump each other out from in front of the sink to try this one. It’s crazy… she’s 13, so she’s hitting the whole breakout peak of her life.. and I’m 34.. I mean, 29… and my skin has gone bonkers too. I love love love tea tree oil for so many things, but it really does dry the heck out of your skin. This face polish didn’t seem to overdry my skin, which was fantastic. She particularly liked how it made her face tingle a bit when she used it. I don’t know, tingle means it’s working? Kids are weird.
