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 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.

Five Beauty Favourites July 2016

Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic

I adore using this toner as part of my morning skincare routine. Its so soothing, calming and refreshing on the skin. It contains so many skin loving ingredients (as you expect from skincare experts Liz Earle), including active ingredients aloe vera to revitalise and soften and calendula, chamomile, cucumber and natural source vitamin E to soothe and refresh the skin.

This feels so gentle and soothing nice on the skin and the formula is alcohol free. It does have quite a strong floral / botanical scent, which I like and find relaxing. I pour a little product on to a cotton pad & sweep all over my face and neck every morning. Its not at all drying and leaves your skin feeling leans and hydrated, ready for the next step in your skincare routine. This paired with the Eye is the complete package! Now that Liz Earle is sold at larger Boots stores it is even easier to get hold of, which is ideal.

My Current Favourite Beauty Products

Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Gorgeous Berries 

I always come back to this blush more than any other in my collection. Its just beautiful. I love the packaging, the fact that its a baked blush and the colour looks a little different each time I wear it. This blush has a marbling effect and I have heard them described as dupes for the much coveted Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blusher, I haven’t used those so I can’t compare. Although I can say its incredible quality for the price.

The Max Factor ones are buttery soft and extremely pigmented, I have the shade Gorgeous Berries which is a deep mauve berry shade. It is the darkest shade in the range and it gives the cheeks a beautiful flush of colour, if you want to build up the intensity you can go all out. These wear really well and the colour lasts all day. This shade does have a slight sheen to it but I wouldn’t say it was anything on par with a highlighter.

Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude

Again this is a foundation I have had in my collection for some time now and its one I love to go back to. The consistency is so fluid that I find it easy to blend and get a good even coverage. This is quite a dark shade compared to what I would usually wear but it works for the warmer months when I have a little more colour, so I am making the most of it. This gives quite a light coverage but it is build-able and it gives the skin a velvety smooth flawless (as the name suggests) finish. I really like the way it makes my skin look and it feels lightweight. Unlike some bases it actually looks better throughout the day, bonus!

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in BackTalk*

I have been wearing this lipstick almost everyday, the colour is so easy to wear. Its is a comfort matte finish but it doesn’t make my lips feel overly dry. Its not a faff to apply and it just makes me look like I have have made more of an effort with my makeup (when I am wearing bare minimal). BackTalk is a gorgeous mauve pink nude shade and I just can’t get enough of it.

Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Golden Pink

I know I am not alone in loving cream shadows, they are a lazy girls best friend. You just sweep the product over your eyelid & blend it out using your finger & it always looks amazing. This Golden Pink is not what I would call a pink, it is a lot more a golden and has a pretty metallic finish. These cream shadow sticks are easy to blend but after a couple of minutes they dry done and do not budge. These are very similar to the Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks which I have quite a few of and I’d say the quality of them is identical. I always travel with cream shadows, because they take up no space, they don’t break in your makeup bag and you don’t need a brush.

Origins GinZing Refreshing Scrub Cleanser

GinZing

GinZing

Skincare

Oh WOW, this is the perfect Summer Cleanser! The Origins Ginzing Refreshing Scrub Cleanser* was released this month and seems to already have a cult following. I have been putting it to the test for about 5 weeks now and its slowly but surely become my go-to Summer Scrub. First off is the fact it smells incredible, fresh & fruity so that makes it all the more pleasurable to use. I like to use it in the morning after I shower, the fresh citrus Grapefruit, Lemon and Spearmint zingy scent wakes me up and the gentle exfoliating scrubbing beads do the same to my skin. So I feel well and truly awake and energised.

Origins Skincare

The cleanser has a thick gel-like texture and its bursting with lots light orange exfoliating beads, although this is a manual scrub, the scrubby beads feel very gentle and not scratchy at all.  I like to gently massage this in to my skin focusing on my nose area (where I tend to get blackheads) then I leave it on my skin for a couple of minutes letting the energising Panax Ginseng and Coffee Bean Caffeine work their magic then I rinse with warm water and I’m left with glowing, smooth summer-ready skin. This is really effective at removing dead skin cells and dirt  & so boosting cell turnover to reveal vibrant skin. Also, the gel-like texture is very cooling on the skin and hydrating so your skin won’t be left feeling stripped or tight.

This is a great 2 in 1 product as the gel cleanser removes makeup and dirt, whilst the exfoliating beads help remove the dead skin and awaken dull tired complexion. The Orange packaging is eye-catching and its another great addition to the GinZing range which already boasts a moisturiser (which I love), eye cream, mascara and eyeshadow.

If you like to use products that help promote a glowing healthy complexion then this is for you & as I said this really is a gentle yet effective scrub. You don’t need to scrub your face off, just softly massage it into your skin & rinse off.

The tube is 150ml & costs £18.50 so I’d say that’s great value for money. Origins is available in larger Boots Stores, John Lewis Stores and online at www.origins.co.uk
