Review: Trilogy Cream Cleanser

Trilogy Cream Cleanser 200ml RM 118
( Bought at discounted price RM108 )

I have bought 3 types of cleansers since April and it seems that I can never find the right one for me. One works rather decently but had a beer scent to it. The other is good for deep cleansing but too oily for everyday use. I was hopeful for the last one but it was drying to my skin and gave me breakouts. Sigh!

I had been eying on Trilogy's Cream Cleanser for a while now because I have heard great reviews on this item. However, I was reluctant to buy then because of the price. I had never spent over RM100+ for any type of cleansers! But after going through 3 failed cleansers ( that cost less than RM100 ), I caved in and see if cleansers ( that cost more ) do does it's job.

So how was the verdict?

My Experience

The texture of the cleanser is creamy and rich, but not overly greasy. It comes in a nice brown apothecary type of glass bottle with a easy to dispense dispenser. However, one needs to be careful with this when using it in your bathroom.

For application , I found that it works better on slighty damp skin and by rubbing the cleanser gently between your palms, helps greatly to disseminate the cleanser before messaging it on your face.

Let's talk about the scent now. It smells way much better than all my previous cleansers! Though most of the ingredients are natural oils, I do detect a slightly stronger hint of frankincense, which reminds me a lot of Aesop products. last, I have found a likeable cream cleanser scent which I can look forward to using it every night.

I have been using this cleanser for 2 months now and I am glad to say that it is not drying to my skin and it does not give me any breakouts. I like it that it cleans pretty nicely, removing my sunscreen, dirt and grimes decently. That being said however, I don't think it can remove eyeliners or mascaras well. You still need an eye makeup remover before using this.


I have grown to like this cleanser over the months and I think it is well suited to my skin. Though it does leave a slighty oily film behind, I don't see it as a problem because I always follow up by cleaning it with my gentle cleanser. After going through three cleansers dissapointments, I am glad that I have found something which I really like, despite the high price tag. With this, I am giving it a 4 out of 5.

*I bought my Trilogy product from Vitacare pharmacies in Malaysia.

This item was purchased by me for my personal purposes. This review is based on my honest and personal experience with this product and is not influenced by any parties.


  1. I've tried the rosehip oil under this brand and that's about it. It's quite expensive. But I like that their ingredient list is short and simple.

  2. their rosehip oil too. Though I like this cleanser a lot, I think I will be trying their cleanser for sensitive skin as soon as this run out.

  3. hi, you have a very interesting blog!

    I finally caved in and ordered this cleanser from Feel Unique and I can't wait to get it, I have tried a sample bottle before (2 years ago) and it left my skin so clean and soft! :DD so after much thought I caved and ordered it since I need a new gentle but effective cleanser (I hate parabens lol). I was actually on your post about the DIY Body Oil (which I find so interesting) and I saw on the sidebar you have a review on the Trilogy cleanser and thought "yay, she bought the cleanser, too" haha :) anyway I'm glad to read you liked it.


    1. Hi Denise! Thank you for your compliments. Hope that this cleanser will be suitable for your skin type. It fares well for me because not only it cleans well, it didn't breakout on me:)
