Tropic Skincare Essentials

When I was given the fantastic opportunity to try out some of the Tropic Skincare range, I was incredibly excited. To say that my current skincare routine had got a little stagnant would be a bit of an understatement. So when this wonderful selection of some of their skin care products arrived at my door I couldn't wait to start testing them out. All I can say, is that these products have very quickly revolutionised my skincare routine, which is quite the statement, considering I've had the same skincare routine for years now.
All of the products in the Tropic Skincare range are 100% natural, cruelty free, made with natural plant extracts and Vegan Society approved.

Tropic Smoothing Cleanser Skincare Beauty Review

Tropic Smoothing Cleanser* £15

A good, let me rephrase that, a great cleanser is always going to be a skincare essential and if you feel like you haven't found the one for you yet, then let me introduce you to the Smoothing Cleanser from Tropic Skincare.
This really does melt away all make-up, even waterproof eye make-up. My traditional means of removing make-up has now become pretty defunct (I'm sorry micellar waters!) Despite it removing make-up completely, it does so in a very gentle manner, which means no rubbing or scrubbing as you attempt to remove your make-up. It feels fantastic on the skin as it is just so rich and creamy.
Included with the smoothing cleanser is a 100% Organic Bamboo fibre face cloth, which is naturally antibacterial and also the softest face cloth that I've ever used. This means that it's well equipped to buff away dead skin cells whilst simultaneously smoothing the skin in conjunction with the cleanser. Believe it or not the cloth actually becomes even softer with every use which is why I think I've been reaching for this as much as I have been.
For me, this really is a must have product to add to your skincare routine.

Tropic Skin Revive Firming Nourishing Cream Tropic Vitamin Toner Skincare Beauty Review

Tropic Vitamin Toner Refreshing Spritz* £12

As the weather has been abnormally warm recently, this product has been a real life saver when it comes to cooling the skin. This is no surprise when you consider the fact that cucumber, Aloe Vera and camomile are included in this refreshing toner. The skin instantly feels soothed and vitality is boosted with this wonderful product. This really is enriched with some fantastic skin loving vitamins, like the name would imply. Vitamin A, E and C and antioxidants that detoxify are present in this product and I've definitely noticed a real difference since I've started using this toner, in conjunction with the other Tropic Skincare products in this blog post. I've seen a visible reduction in the amount of redness in my skin and since I've exclusively been using these products on my skin for the last month, I can quite certainly give Tropic Skincare the credit for my improved and clarified complexion.
You can either use clean hands or a cotton wool pad (I personally prefer the latter) to apply the toner to the face and neck. It's then best to follow up this product with the Skin Revive Firming Nourishing Cream, making these two the perfect duo.

Tropic Skin Revive Firming Nourishing Cream* £20
Following on from the Vitamin Toner, the Skin Revive Firming Nourishing Cream is a moisturiser packed full of even more vitamins, antioxidants and pure plant actives. These all work together to visibly firm the skin and leave it feeling intensely nourished. Basically the clue is in the name with this product. Some of the ingredients include shea butter, rosehip, blueberry, raspberry, sea kelp and Frankincense which all work on targeting different skin problems. Add into the equation the fact that this product and the array of ingredients that I have mentioned, work to improve the elasticity of the skin as well as smoothing fine lines and you've got a winner for many different skin types and ages as well. This is one of the first face creams or moisturisers where my skin hasn't had to adjust to using it. You know what I mean? You normally have that awkward stage where your skin either breaks out or gets unusually oily as it tries to adjust to using a new product. There was none of that with this cream. I definitely think the fact that it's so natural plays a big part in that.

Tropic Face Smooth Polish Beauty Skincare Review

Tropic Face Smooth Polish* £15

Now I have to make a confession, I have never used a facial exfoliant before. I think it might be due to the fact that I've always worried that those kinds of products would irritate my face. But after trying this Face Smooth Polish from Tropic Skincare, I now feel like I've been missing out a crucial part of my skincare routine. The consistency is a little gritty (obviously it needs to be somewhat gritty in texture to do it's job) but saying that, it hasn't caused any irritation whatsoever when it comes to my sensitive skin.
This polish works to cleanse, exfoliate, tone and moisturise all in one go. So this is definitely the product to try if you're looking to streamline your skincare routine or add in a much needed exfoliant to your current routine, like I have.
It smells absolutely beautiful. Think lemons and sweet oranges (which are only two of the vast array of ingredients). In addition to these two, you've got Acai Berry, organic rice flour, sugar cane, camomile, Vitamin E and more, all in the one tub.
This also comes with a wooden spatula (which does look a little bit like a big ice lolly stick) which is really great, especially if you're not a fan of dipping your fingers into your skincare products. And a little really does go a long way. I've personally been using this once a week, normally on a Sunday night and can see this lasting me a good while.

What do you think of these products? Have you ever tried any of the Tropic Skincare range? If so, what products are your favourites? I'd love to hear your suggestions on what products to try next.
