DO WE REALLY KNOW WHAT’S IN OUR PRODUCTS?

08/06/2016

There is so much I adore about this world and so many reasons that I love travelling around it. Eating as many cuisines as possible – I mean, you knew that was going to be at the top of the list – learning and discovering new cultures, learning about yourself and making memories that absolutely no amount of money can buy… but the one thing that I truly love the most, the thing that gives me all of those “ahhh, I’m home, this is my happy place, I’ll just stay here then yeah?” vibes, is the Ocean.

There is something so chaotic but simultaneously calming about the Ocean, it’s the place that puts everything into perspective and helps me completely zone out and figure out where I need to be going in life (my answer to that neverending question is nearly always “to the fridge, then to the laptop with the Grey’s anatomy loaded”) but despite me being the Ocean’s very own biggest fangirl, I’ve never ever thought about the fact that just going about my day to day life I could be unintentionally causing a huge threat to it, and considering that today is World Ocean Day, I thought it would be the perfect time to start.

I had absolutely no bloomin’ idea that most of my “harmless” cosmetics products contained microbeads. You know those things that you’re like “oooh lovely, I’m totally going to be an exfoliated goddess after using this so move over Victoria Secret’s angels?” (no, is that just me then?) they’re actually tiny pieces of plastic that are causing such a threat to our planet’s ecosystems and wildlife, it’s even led to California banning microbeads in cosmetic products alongside the launch of a campaign that I feel so passionate about – which, in case you’re a bit confused by my slightly geeky science lesson, is actually what I’m talking to you about today – called #BeatTheMicrobead.

One brand that has always been, and will always be free of plastic microbeads is Trilogy, and I am so unbelievably happy about this as not only do I have the most amazing exfoliator – the gentle facial exfoliant, containing natural and biodegradable alternatives to those pesky little plastic things – to tell you about today, but I’ve also fangirled an embarrassing amount about the brand as a whole numerous times before (in particular about the Makeup be gone cleansing balm *insert heart eye’d emoji’s here*). So thank you Trilogy, not only for making the most babein products that makes my skin feel sassier than Beyonce, not only for providing products with natural ingredients that are kinder to our skin and our world, but also for helping to promote World Ocean Day as I for one definitely didn’t even know it existed. Now for my fangirl – don’t say I didn’t warn you – of the Trilogy gentle facial exfoliant.

Trilogy’s mantra is “Maximum effect on your skin, minimum effect on the environment” and I feel like that sums up the gentle exfoliant perfectly. It’s such a simple product but makes such a huge difference to my skin. The first thing I noticed about the exfoliant was that the exfoliating particles are so much smaller than any other I’ve tried which at first made me sceptical whether it would actually do anything, but gal pals, this seriously does. It makes my skin look so much brighter, glowier and more radiant and I am all about those “I look like I’ve eaten all the fruit and veg and water in the world but lols, totally haven’t” kinda vibes.
It also has an extremely thick and creamy consistency meaning that whilst gently sloughing away at your skin – always such an attractive phrase and thought – it also keeps your skin completely moisturised and nourished and I really find this so important for my slightly sensitive skin because for once, I can exfoliate it without leaving it a big red tomato mess (pretty much the dream tbh!).
So, if Trilogy products don’t contain any plastic microbeads, what’s actually in them that exfoliates your skin? Well, in the gentle exfoliant for example, Trilogy uses Jojoba wax microspheres, a natural and biodegradable alternative but this really is just one example and one thing I’ve learned through this campaign is that natural alternatives really are much more available to us than we probably even realise. For me, somebody with a very busy lifestyle that really doesn’t have the time to be researching specific products, I find it so reassuring to know that by sticking with a brand like Trilogy – thankfully a brand that I’ve always adored anyway – every single product will be free of plastic microbeads. And despite me being just one little person on this planet (or one kinda big person after last night’s Indian takeaway) I’m doing my bit for the Ocean. Something that the vast majority of us adore but probably don’t actively protect.

So that brings me to the end of this post. I would absolutely love to know your thoughts on World Ocean Day; did you know that it even existed? Will you be changing up your products to Beat the Microbead? And have you ever tried any Trilogy products before? I always love to hear your thoughts 🙂
As always, thanks so much for reading!
P.S Happy World Ocean day <3
