Tropic Skincare Sun Care Discovery Kit

Tropic Sun Care Products

I am sure so many of you are already aware of Tropic Skincare as a brand but just in case it has passed some of you by I just wanted to say a little about their ethics and values. Tropic is a 100% Natural, Cruelty-Free & Vegan company who base themselves out of their Surrey beauty kitchen & warehouse. They endeavour to keep as much of their processes in-house as possible, from development to manufacturing and marketing to dispatch. They produce effective products at such a reasonable price and they never, ever compromise on the quality of ingredients they use.

Tropic Sun Care Discovery Kit

I’m excited to introduce you to the Tropic Skincare 4 piece Sun Care Kit. This kit includes their mineral suncare saviours in handy travel-friendly sizes.

I was very excited to put it to the test and the UK certainly came through with the warm sunny weather!  The Sun Care Discovery Kit Includes,

Sun Soothe Cooling Aftersun Lotion 

Skin Shade Mineral Sun Protection SPF 30

Skin Shade Mineral Sun Protection SPF 50

Sun Balm SPF 50

Why is mineral sunscreen best I hear you cry! I think Tropic can explain it better than I can so here is their scientific take on mineral sunscreen:-

There are currently two types of sunscreens on the market, ‘chemical’ and ‘mineral’. Chemical sunscreens absorb UV rays and convert them into heat energy on the skin. Mineral sunscreens use natural actives to act as a physical barrier to UV rays. Tropic’s no-negotiations ban on harmful chemicals paved the way to developing a game-changing range of 100% mineral sun protection heroes your summer wouldn’t be complete without. Harnessing zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to protect your skin against UVA and UVB rays, as well as an abundance of skin-boosting tropical ingredients, these luxury sunscreens are summer essentials. 

Tropic Skincare Mineral Sunscreen

Tropic sunscreen is gentle on your skin as well as protecting you from the harmful UV rays (which are linked to skin cancers) so your skin is in good hands! I live in (sunny) Cornwall and spend a lot of time outside so this kit is perfect to take with us in the car & the ideal size to keep one of the sunscreens in my bag for reapplying throughout the day.

Included in this Sun Care Kit are cabin-friendly 100ml versions of Skin Shade Mineral Sun Protection in SPF 30 and 50, as well as Sun Soothe Cooling Aftersun Lotion – so it is ideal for taking with you on your upcoming travels.

Tropic Skin Shade SPF 50Tropic Skin Shade SPF 30 & 50

These smell just like the summer holidays and I love it. Despite them being mineral sunscreens and quite high factors they’re not too thick and once massaged into your skin feel smooth and lightweight on the skin. The SPF50 is a touch thicker and when applied has a slight white cast but after a couple of minutes that completely goes away. These are both broad spectrum and water-resistant so if you’re off on a beach holiday you will be set!

You can use these on both your face & body and I found them gentle on my skin and they didn’t break me out. They also wear well under makeup. Although if you’re looking for a tinted SPF for your face then you need to try the tinted version, The Tropic Tinted Skin Shade SPF 50 – this is fantastic and a great makeup/skincare product.

• 100% mineral protection from zinc oxide and titanium dioxide
• Exotic kahai and roucou oils, rich in omega fatty acids, keep skin soft and hydrated
• Extracts of antioxidant-rich Australian kakadu and illawarra plum protect the skin

Tropic Skincare Sun Balm SPF 50

Tropic Skincare Sun Balm

Sun Balm SPF 50

This is such a versatile, handy little product. I have been popping this into my handbag and taking it everywhere. It is a balm which can be applied pretty much anywhere including the ears, lips, face, feet or even your hairline. All those places that are exposed to the sun all day and are more prone to burning. I like to apply this throughout the day, or even if I’m just popping out for lunch or a quick walk I will apply this to those exposed areas. I always worry about my lips and ears burning so have been slapping this on at every opportunity.

It is a fantastic product to have to help protect against sun damage and contains natural ingredients which help soothe, heal and shield the skin from UVA, UVB and free radicals.

  • With nourishing extracts of tamanu oil, vitamin E and rosemary leaf oil
  • Zinc oxide provides broad-spectrum protection

Because this comes in a balm it won’t leak in your bag and is fuss-free and very easy to apply. It isn’t thick or tacky and you can reapply it super easily.

Tropic Skincare Sun Soothe

Apart from a cold shower, what feels better on the skin after a long day in the sun than a nice soothing after sun lotion!? Replenishing your skin after being out in the sunshine is almost as important as protecting yourself whilst in the sunshine.

This Sun Soothe not only relieves redness it hydrates and nourishes sun-parched skin whilst also prolonging your natural tan. It instantly cools and feels comfortable and lightweight on the skin. This is one post-sun skin saviour that will keep your skin in tip-top condition.

• Aloe vera juice and menthol help to cool skin and relieve redness
• Argan oil and vitamin E deeply nourish
• Bisabolol and eucalyptus repair and calm skin in need of TLCTropic Skincare Suncare- Kit

Tropic mineral suncare is not only kind to your skin but is also kinder to the environment too,

A recent statistic shows that 4,000 – 6,000 metric tons of sunscreen washes off swimmers into the ocean every single year*. It’s also no secret that ingredients found in some chemical sunscreens have been linked to the bleaching of up to 10% of coral reefs across the globe, while also inhibiting the growth of baby corals*. These same ingredients have also been identified as hormone disruptors when absorbed into our bodies**, which of course, isn’t ideal when these products are applied regularly throughout the sunnier months. Tropic’s range of mineral sunscreens keeps skin protected with formulations that are truly good for you, and the environment, without compromise on efficacy.

Tropic Sun Care Discovery Kit is available online from tropicskincare.com and retails at £40 or £50 with the Sun Balm added.

Skincare Favourites

Skin Care

I do have quite a few favourite skincare products and I like to change up what I use quite often depending on how my skin feels & what it needs, but these are a few products that I really like using.

L’Oreal Skin Perection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution 4.99

I have tried quite a few Micellar Waters and although I don’t use them to cleanse my face I do like to use one to remove the majority of my makeup before washing my face. This L’Oreal one is very good and gentle and It is the only Micellar Water I have repurchased. It doesn’t dry my skin out and a bottle lasts me well over a month and thats using it every evening. It is normally on offer at Boots or Superdrug and I have seen is in Asda at the moment for £2.

Garnier Simply Essential 2 in 1 Soothing Make Up Remover £2.99

This is a good budget friendly eye makeup remover and I have repurchased this over and over again. You have to mix the solutions and it is slightly greasy but not in a bad way, it helps breakdown my mascara and it even removes my beloved Covergirl Lash blast 24 hour mascara, that stuff is heavy duty.

Merumaya Melting Cleansing Balm* £14.50

My love for this is no secret and I’ve even converted my mum. She tried mine whilst staying with me and has asked for one for Christmas. It is a lovely Balm Cleanser and just (as the name suggests) melts away all my makeup leaving my skin so very soft, hydrated and smooth. For the price I just can’t get over how good this stuff is. If you’re looking to buy a Cleansing Balm then I can’t recommend this one from Merumaya enough.

balance Me Pure Skin Face Wash* £16

I use this in the shower in the morning and it helps keep my skin blemish free and is good for my redness. It is so very gentle and creamy that is works wonders to calm skin but keeps it clean too without drying it out. With all balance Me products they contain no Mineral Oils, Parabens, Sulpahtes, Petroleum, silicons or artificial colours or fragrances! So that is your skin taken good care of.

Kiehls Centella Skin-Calming Facial Cleanser £26.50

This is a very good Cleanser for people who have vey very sensitive skin. It contains Aloe Vera, Camomile and Tiger Herb (Centella Asiatica) which is good for healing. It is quite a thin consistency and doesn’t foam up. It feels like a light gel. I like to use it in the winter when my skin is dry and when I have been out in the cold alot, as it is hydrating and calming. This 200ml bottle has lasted me over a year and that is using it at least twice a week. It doesn’t look like much in the bottle but believe me it is a lovely cleanser.

Tropic Skincare Vitamin Toner* £12

I use this when sat at my desk, it gives my skin a boost of moisture and it smells lovely. It is packed full of lovely natural ingredients,

Pure Aloe Vera soothes & refreshes

Vitamins A, E & C boost skin vitality, Cucumber & Camomile reduce redness and cool the skin

Specially formulated to promote optimum skin pH & moisture for naturally refined & glowing skin.

I work from home so tend not to wear makeup during the day so I like to use this on my face to keep my skin hydrated and give it a boost of all those lovely ingredients. I like facial sprays but many of them don’t have any added skincare benefits but this one from Tropic Skincare is jam packed with so many benefits for your face. For £12 you get 120ml
