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.

Tropic Skincare Review

Tropic Skincare Review

Everything I have tried from Tropic Skincare has blown me away and delivered visible results. Their entire range is vegan, cruelty free, contain the purest naturally derived ingredients and are free from harmful toxic chemicals. So your skin is in good hands.

I have introduced four Tropic products into my skincare routine over the past two months and I am excited to tell you all about them.

Tropic Smoothing Cleanser Complexion Purifier

This is a beautifully rich creamy cleanser that smells so fresh and soothing it has a blend of uplifting eucalyptus, golden jojoba and avocado oils. I like to really take my time to massage this into my skin, letting the scent calm me and also allowing all the wonderful ingredients to gently melt off the daily grime and makeup. It is astonishing just how much pollution and dirt our skin picks up in a single day.

Then I use the bamboo face cloth (which comes with this product) which is the softest face cloth I have ever had, it softly lifts away the cleanser taking all the dirt with it, leaving your skin feeling unbelievably soft and clean. I adore this cleanser for both morning and night and it has become a firm favourite in my routine.

Tropic Skincare Bamboo Cloth

Tropic Vitamin Toner Pore Refining Mist

I love face mists simply because they’re so fuss free to use, you can spritz them after cleansing or on top of your makeup. They help cool, refresh, hydrate and this one from Tropic also helps to visibly reduce pores. I have had this on my desk for the past two months and I spritz it throughout the day giving my skin an extra dose of skincare, helping keep it hydrated  and looking radiant. It contains soothing aloe vera and cucumber juice which both sooth and calm skin whilst vitamin c and rose water help give a boost of radiance. I can’t believe this toner is only £14 it is a complete bargain and my favourite out of the four products I have been trying.

Tropic Skin Revive Nourishing Cream Concentrate

This lovely rich moisturiser has been keeping my skin looking and feeling hydrated all day long. 2 – 3 pumps is all you need and it leaves your skin so soft, plump and visibly smooth. This cream concentrate is absolutely packed full of wonderful ingredients which address a whole range of skin concerns. It contains no less than 20 different skin-loving fruit, flower and seed extracts. This nutrient-rich daily moisturiser hydrates, protects and nourishes your skin for a healthy and more radiant complexion.

Tropic Skincare Face Lift Mask

Tropic Face Lift Brightening Tightening Mask

I like to use this face mask when I multi mask and I apply it over the areas that need a little help reducing fine lines and wrinkles whilst helping to keep saggy skin at bay. I use this mask on a weekly basis and apply it to my forehead, chin and neck. It has a very thick, almost clay like texture and I leave it on for around 20 mins.

It contains Agave nectar (rich in amino acids) and seabuckthorn extracts (rich in carotene) which work to hydrate and plump skin. Turmeric and glycolic acids promote a brighter, more even complexion and electric daisy extract works to tighten skin and minimise fine lines. So this mask is packed with nourishing, hydrating and firming ingredients which promote long term results. I am thrilled with this mask and so pleased to have it in my skincare routine.

Tropic Skincare Summer Releases

Tropic Sun Skincare

Tropic Sun Skincare

Tropic Skin Care has released some fantastic products for the Summer and I have been putting two of them to the test. Their Summer essentials include Mineral Sunscreens, a Self Tanning range, Shimmer Treats and a soothing Aftersun Lotion. So Tropic have everything you need to see you through the Summer.

Tropic Tinted Skin Shade

This is a tinted facial sunscreen and is available in two shades, Light to Medium and Medium to dark. This is a water-resistant SPF50 mineral sunscreen, it provides broad spectrum UVA and UVB sun protection whilst also giving your skin a healthy natural tint.

As we are all aware sun exposure can be dangerous and sunscreen is an essential part of preventing premature ageing, reducing sun spots and skin discolouration and of reducing your risk of skin cancer. So when I can find a sunscreen that also provides a little coverage I’m all over it. I like products that are a 2 in 1 and I love that this Tropic Tinted Skin Shade gives me a natural healthy tint of colour whilst not compromising on the quality of the SPF protection.

As I said I have the Light / Medium shade and have been enjoying using this alone as my base for a couple of weeks. It gives my skin a beautiful touch of colour and a healthy glow. It also evens out my skintone but still lets my freckles show through which I like. It feels comfortable on my skin, is very easy to apply, blend (I use my fingers) and to top up throughout the day. It is the perfect product for creating a lightweight, fresh Summer look and perfect for taking with you on holiday. I have been using a facial SPF daily for a couple of years now and having one that gives you the benefits of high SPF protection, is tinted and contains lovely skincare ingredients to just ticks all the boxes.

• Extracts of passion flower oil, high in omega 6, retain your skin’s natural moisture

• Australian aniseed myrtle and wild hibiscus flower extract actively eliminate free radicals and promote younger looking skin

  • –  100% mineral sun protection
  • –  Free from toxic chemicals
  • –  Broad spectrum (UVA/UVB protection)
  • –  Kinder to the environment
  • –  Gentle on sensitive skin
  • –  Water resistant

I’m so impressed with how lovely this looks on my skin and how nice it feels. It is one of those products you look forward to using every day.

Tropic Suncare Products 2017

Tropic Summer Goddess Shimmering Body Oil

This shimmering body oil is 100% Summer in a bottle, it looks so pretty and smells beautiful too. It makes me wish I was heading to IBIZA on holiday but sadly that is not happening, although I do live in Cornwall so I have been slathering this all over my limbs to get that radiant holiday glow.

• With organic virgin coconut and golden jojoba oils to hydrate and nourish skin

• Scents from Tahitian and bourbon vanilla keep you smelling delicious

This won’t make you look like you have covered your body in glitter but instead makes your skin glisten with a subtly shimmery, golden glow and the gorgeous oil hydrates and nourishes the skin keeping it looking and feeling its best. I give it a quick shake to disperse the shimmer particles then I  massage a good amount on my arms, legs and décolletage. It instantly makes them look golden and gives them that sexy holiday glow and the

This is a limited edition product so if you want it you best be quick.

The Body Shop Vitamin C Range

The Body Shop Vitamin C Skincare

The Body Shop Vitamin C Skincare

Over the years (many years) I have used almost all of the skincare ranges from The Body Shop but the Vitamin C Range for some reason I hadn’t ever tried and I am kicking myself for not giving it a go sooner. The Vitamin C range is formulated to give your skin a boost of hydration giving it a gorgeous energising glow. I have been putting it to the test over the past 2 months and I’m absolutely smitten with the range. Earlier this year The Body Shop added two new products to this range, the first being

Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser* £16.00

This is such a lightweight water based moisturiser – it feels like a gel and I was very surprised at how quickly it absorbed into my skin, it was almost instantly. I like to use this in the morning because it’s a great way to give your tired skin a boost of hydration making it look and feel plumped and the Vitamin C helps your skin look glowing, making you look healthy and more awake. The zesty citrus scent helps energise you too, it smells so fresh and uplifting!

The packaging feels and looks luxurious, it’s in a weighty orange glass jar with a black lid, its sturdy and really good quality too.

There is no SPF in this which I know a few people are disappointed with but I like to apply a separate SPF every day so it’s not a problem for me but just something to note if you’re looking to use this as your daytime moisturiser. After using it almost daily for 2 months my skin feels smooth and is looking radiant. Its a welcomed addition to my skincare routine.

The Body Shop Vitamin C Range

Being someone that has quite naturally dull skin I welcome any product that promises to give me a natural glow – most of the time the products end up being a little disappointing but The Body Shop seem to have hit the nail on the head with both these new releases. The second new addition to the Vitamin C Range is,

Vitamin C Instant Glow Enhancer* £14.00

I like to use this on top of my moisturiser, it has quite a creamy texture but it’s not heavy or greasy and to my surprise, it has a really flattering peachy tint to it. I apply this mostly to the centre of my face, focusing on my forehead, nose & chin as this is great at blurring pores and fine lines making my skin look smooth as well as giving it a slight peachy glow. You see instant results with this product, it really helps combat the signs of fatigue and is just the perfect base for your makeup.

Instant Glow Enhancer

It has a velvet finish and your makeup seems to glide on. It also helps keep my foundation in place and looking its best all day/night. There is no shimmer in this which I really like, it gives your skin more of a natural glow, the colour adjusts to your skin tone (like magic) evening out your skin tone and I love the blurring effect it gives the skin. I really like the tube packaging & the fact its bright orange and will be so handy to travel with or throw in your handbag for giving your skin a pick me up throughout the day. I also think its a great moisturiser too if you have oily skin, it adds another good layer of hydration to your skin which for me is always a good thing.

So this is a bit of a multi-tasker – a primer, lightweight moisturiser and tinted cream all in one. I really recommend trying this! Oh, & it also has the same zesty orange scent – smells good enough to eat.

The Body Shop Vitamin C Skincare

Vitamin C Energising Face Mist* £10.00

This isn’t new but its new to me, I love using face mists and always have one on my desk but if I remember I do like to keep a couple in the fridge that makes them so refreshing and cooling especially in this crazy heat.

This face mist is an instant pick me up, it smells like oranges and it instantly cools the skin. Like the other products in this range it contains Camu Camu which is rich in vitamin C and aloe vera, so its hydrating, calming and helps boost the skin’s radiance. Its so nice on a warm day & you can spray on top of your makeup throughout the day to keep skin feeling fresh and hydrated.

I feel like The Body Shop has really stepped up their game over the past 18 months & are releasing some really great products. Let me know what products you have recently discovered from The Body Shop.
