Tropic Skincare Awaken Your Senses Bath Soak

Tropic Skincare Bath Soak

Tropic Skincare seems to be one of the best-kept secrets in the beauty world. Their entire range is vegan, cruelty-free, contain the purest naturally derived ingredients and are totally free from harmful toxic chemicals. So your skin is in good hands. I’ve been lucky enough to try a few of their skincare releases and they’ve always exceeded expectations.

I find myself recommending them to friends and family of all ages, it is fuss free, natural skincare that just works.

These new & limited edition bath soaks are the perfect excuse for a pamper, whether you need a little uplifting with the ‘Awaken Your Senses’ option or are in need of a calming bath with the ‘Soothe Your Senses’ version Tropic has you covered!  They’re both incredibly indulgent, nourishing and smell divine.

Tropic Soothe The Senses Bath Soak

Soothe The Senses Bath Soak

This is for those days you just want to have a quiet, relaxing bath and soak away the day’s stresses. I like to use this on a Friday night so I can fully relax into the weekend and forget work.

This bath soak turns the water into a nourishing milk which is very gentle and soothing not only for your mind but also your skin. The beautiful essential oils help to relax your mind and the plant oils soften your skin so it really is a treat for mind and body.

• Exotic frangipani flower extract helps to transform your bath into a pool of tranquillity
• Blended with vitamin E and macadamia oils to condition and soften skin
• Cedarwood essential oil provides a warm sense of grounding and comfort, soaking away the day’s stress.

This has a lovely exotic floral scent with a touch of sweetness from the macadamia and almond oils, it is so relaxing. It smells so luxurious and very comforting. It makes me want to stay in the bath for ages.

Awaken Your Senses With Tropic Skincare

Awaken Your Senses Bath Soak * 

This is ideal if you need to pep yourself up or feel a little low. This has more of an uplifting, restorative vibe to it. It makes the perfect addition to a morning bath, to get you in the right frame of mind for the day ahead. The neroli, bergamot and citrus give it a more energising twist,

• 25% of this bottle is a blend of the most energising, zesty citrus essential oils
• Restorative neroli and basil essential oils banish fatigue and soothe muscles
• With mouthwatering infusions of bergamot, lime, lemon, mandarin and sweet orange essential oils

It smells amazing and I think out of the two this is my favourite, the scent really fills the room and makes me feel ready for the day. Much like the Soothe Your Senses option, this is just as nourishing for your body as your mind. This contains 25% essential oils which have such a positive effect on your mental and physical well being. There is so much evidence about the beneficial effects of essential oils on your body and mind and Tropic Skincare always use the highest grade in their products. So when you get the time to use these products in your bath make sure you take the time to relax and really soak them up.

Tropic Skincare Luxury Bath Products

These aren’t going to fill your baths with bubbles, instead, these Tropic bath soaks add more of a sophisticated touch to your bath. They start out as a lovely oil but when added to water they become a milky consistency which nourishes the skin and leaves it silky smooth and hydrated.

At £38 per bottle, these are quite a luxury but they’re incredible quality and full of the wonderful, beneficial ingredients that will positively impact both your mind and body. As you only need 2-3 caps per bath a 260ml bottle will last quite a while. They also have a So Sleepy version which has sleep-inducing essential oils for true relaxation, sounds perfect for anyone that has trouble sleeping.

Also if you’re looking for Mother’s Day Gift ideas why not treat your Mum to something special from Tropic and introduce her to a wonderful British beauty brand?

New Vichy Idéalia Skincare

NEW Vichy Idealia Skincare

NEW Vichy Idealia Skincare

I have tried quite a few products from French skincare experts Vichy over the years and I am always impressed by their quality. I especially loved the Double Glow Peel Mask and Purete Thermale Range because my number one skin concern is dull, lacklustre skin and they both helped my skin look fresh and achieve that natural healthy glow. So when I heard about this new Idéalia range which is formulated to boost radiance I was so excited to put it to the test, and this duo came through my door at just the right time to combat the dulling effects of Winter on my skin.

New Vichy Serum

Vichy Idéalia Radiance Boosting Serum

So this serum has a lovely lightweight consistency (it contains regenerating Vichy Thermal Spa Water) and I have been enjoying using it in the morning as the first step in my skincare regime. It glides on my skin and instantly gives is a smooth, soft feel. Its emulsified texture leaves a light, non-greasy, protective film on the skin’s surface and protects the complexion from the microparticles that it collects throughout the day.

  • Radiance is restored and dullness reduced
  • Skin texture appears smoother
  • Vichy Mineralising Thermal Water strengthens the skin against aggressors
  • Tested on sensitive skin under dermatological control
  • Hypoallergenic

This Idéalia range is formulated to help repair and restore your complexion so it looks healthy and has that fresh glow. I am all about trying to achieve that glow! It is safe to say that Vichy has packed both products full of incredible ingredients that help protect against environmental aggressors, stimulates cellular repair and gently exfoliates the skin’s surface.

NEW Vichy Radiance Peeling Solution

Vichy Idéalia Peeling – Night Peeling Care

Over the past 3 months, this has become an integral part of my evening skincare regime, I use it after cleansing by applying it with a cotton pad, (avoiding the eye contour) I just sweep it across my skin and it gently exfoliates the skin whilst the active ingredients illuminate skin from within.

If you have tried other glycolic acids but found them too much for your sensitive skin then I highly recommend trying this Vichy one as it is very gentle and a little product goes a long way. This formula has a combination of 4% glycolic acid and 5% hepes to provide an exfoliating effect whilst boosting cell turnover.

  • Formulated with blueberry polyphenols, fermented black tea extract & Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water
  • Wake up to the look of naturally glowing skin
  • Evens skin tone and smoothes fine lines
  • Evens complexion
  • Awakens dull skin to reveal a natural glow

I think this has really helped even out my skin and give it that refreshed healthy glow. My skin also feels smoother and softer since using both products and I’ve found my makeup also sits better, which is a real bonus.

I’ve been very impressed with both products but out of the two (if I was forced to only repurchase one) I don’t think I could be without the Vichy Idéalia Peeling – Night Peeling Care. It is unlike any other product I am using at the moment and I know how important it is to use glycolic acid to help renew and rejuvenate skin. I think I have found the right fit for me.

Have you tried either of these products from the new Vichy Idéalia range or do you have any recommendations for gentle glycolic acid toners?
