Gentle but Effective: Trilogy Active Enzyme Cleansing Cream

It seems you can get your scrub on through virtually every part of your skincare regime nowdays:  cleansers, serums, toners, and even old-fashioned single purpose exfoliants can give your skin a good scrubbing.  This Trilogy Active Enzyme Cleansing Cream is one of those cleansers which contain exfoliating ingredients, guaranteeing you soft, smooth skin after use.

It reminds me a bit of the Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser I tried recently, with a couple of key differences.  Firstly, the Trilogy cleanser costs £26.50 for 200ml, compared to Murad's £34 for 200ml, making it a bit cheaper.  Secondly, where the Murad cleanser uses a combination of both chemical exfoliants and little scrubby bits (technical term), the Trilogy cleanser uses fruit enzymes.  As a result, the Trilogy cleanser feels much more gentle on the skin - there's no manual scrubbing going on, and the thick, almost clay-like texture of the cleanser feels comforting on the skin.

The results are similar, though - soft, velvety skin which drinks up moisturiser very effectively.  The skin doesn't feel at all dry or tight after use, which can be a side effect of exfoliating products - the inclusion of vitamin E and jojoba keep things balanced in Trilogy's cleanser.

Overall, if you're looking for a gentle but effective exfoliating cleanser, and you're a fan of other enzyme based products such as Elemis' cult Papaya Enzyme Peel, this Trilogy cleanser is well worth trying.
