I was quite excited when I found out Trilogy released a new softening lotion. I have used a few Asian brand softening lotions before and I especially like Shiseido’s softening lotions. They are all very hydrating without leaving the skin greasy.
I have been using this Trilogy Age Proof Hydra-Tone for a few weeks now and I am impressed. The consistency is similar to a serum and it really hydrates my skin and make it look very plump and soft. It has a strong scent of ylang ylang.
I apply this product with my hands as I don’t think it will work that well with a cotton pad. On some days, I only apply this product as my moisturizer. I think this product will be great for oily skin.
The only downside ro this product is the packaging. Due to the product has a thick serum gel like consistency, I found it quite hard to dispense out of the hole of the bottle.

What’s a softening lotion?
Softening lotions are a new type of toner. Similar to traditional toners, they complete the cleansing routine by removing residual cleanser, impurities and make-up.
However softening lotions are totally non-astringent, leaving skin feeling immediately soft and hydrated. Bridging the gap between cleansing and moisturising, a softening lotion offers a little bit of each and more besides.
