Trinny London Skincare – Caroline Hirons


My previous overview of the Cleansers can be found here.

Following on from my Insta Live, I just wanted to leave the overview here for your perusal as promised.

In short, these are brilliant formulas. Highly effective, chokka full of actives and do what they say on the tin.

Just a reminder that all Trinny London skincare formulas are vegan, with the exception of Reveal Yourself as that contains lactobionic acid derived from milk.

The brand is cruelty free.
