Tropic Skincare Products
I’m not certain when I first heard about Tropic but the Tropic skincare products seem to have been around for quite a while. Moisturisers, cleansers, body scrubs and makeup – but not seen on the high street. Tropic is sold by ambassadors in the form of Tropic pamper parties or via catalogue. This brand does seem to be pretty well known.
Maybe it’s the power of social media. But as well as being a familiar name, Tropic also has a pretty good reputation to go with. In what way? The ingredients are meant to be natural, vegan and nutritious for our skin. Sustainably sourced from plants and botanicals from ‘exotic regions’ such as the Amazon Rainforest. This is one skincare range I am more than willing to try.
When I was sent some products to try from Tropic ambassador Julie Clark, I was keen to jump right in. In fact, I tried them all out that very evening!
What Tropic Skincare Products Did I Get?
I received a little cosmetic bag with the ABC Skincare Discovery Kit. This included a travel sized cream cleanser, facial moisturiser, toner, bamboo cloth and a little bottle of skin oil called ‘super greens.’
I had seen Julie’s Facebook Lives and I remembered watching her use her cleanser with the bamboo cloth. She massaged in this luxurious looking cleanser, then used a warm cloth to clean away all the daily dirt and grime. She looked so refreshed and bright afterwards, that I just couldn’t wait to take off my makeup!
This Will Be Put to The Test!
My skin is not the clearest. I have very combination skin – and I mean very! Where it’s dry, it really needs lots of moisturiser. Then where it’s oily, I have enlarged pores and constantly battling my T-Zone with compressed powder during the day.
I always wear makeup – ever since my teens. But I can’t stand to have any kind of foundation or concealer on my face. I have to wear powder, but with foundation as well, it feels dry and heavy. So just powder and eye makeup.
My habits are good in the way that my makeup is always off at night. Without fail (even after a night out and one too many glasses of prosecco). But I’m a soap and water kind of girl. Or face wash. I just like the feel of fresh water to clean my skin, instead of wiping off my mascara with a cotton wool pad.
I Love This Bamboo Cloth and Cleanser!
When I tried the cleanser, I found it so moisturising and soothing on my skin. It’s all natural, containing green tea extract, jojoba and eucalyptus leaf oils, so no irritation. Then I ran warm water on the cloth (probably a little too warm, but that’s how I like it) and pressed the hot cloth to my face. Like a spa! The bamboo cloth is soft – not like an old scratchy flannel. This was just lovely!
After cleansing, I hung the rinsed cloth on my towel rail for the following day and I next spritzed on the toner. Ah the smell! Again, so lovely. With organic aloe vera and cranberry extract, it’s simply refreshing. Also very moisturising. The bottle suggests leaving it on your skin to soak in before wiping away, so I applied it when my skin was still damp after cleansing, then patted dry with a towel.
What is this Little Green Bottle?
I do like trying out moisturisers, but this Nutrient Boost Oil was something quite nice. I’ve used oils before and found them greasy, but this absorbed quite quickly. The first thing that was quite striking about this oil was the smell. It’s called ‘Super Greens’ and that is just what it is. It has kale, chlorophyll, broccoli and green coffee (among other ingredients) and just smells healthy! It did take some getting used to, but I put this on my face before bed to work it’s magic overnight.
The little bottle of nourishing cream (called ‘Skin Feast’) is a nice lightweight day cream. I tend to slather on the moisturiser, but it felt fresh with a clean smell.
After One Week of Using Tropic Skincare Products
My skin looks clearer and a better base for makeup. Using the bamboo cloth opens my pores and cleanses the skin well. In fact, my two favourite products from this set are the bamboo cloth and the bottle of Super Greens. I would be keen to try out some of the other serums (the ‘Pure Lagoon’ looks interesting) and the face masks.
I’ve also noticed the hair products available. I have seborrheic dermatitis and have to avoid certain chemicals in shampoos such as SLS’s that dry my scalp. So I’m keen to get my hands on the hair wash. The Tropic products are more natural so do not contain these irritants – and the scalp massage brush looks like bliss!
I feel a pamper party coming on!
