Tropic Skincare – My Skin Saviours

Clear Skin Products from Tropic Skincare

Tamanu Healing Balm from Tropic Skincare

Let me introduce to you two best-selling blemish busting (and more) skincare saviours from Vegan beauty brand Tropic Skincare. I have been so excited to talk more about these products as I have been using them for a couple of months now and have really grown to rely on them in my beauty routine, in particular, the Tamanu Healing Balm which is simply one product that will very quickly become a ‘does all’ product in your daily life. It really has an endless list of uses!

First off, lets talk about the Clear Skin Blemish Fighting Mask – the lovely team at Tropic sent this out to me because for the first time in my adult life I was suffering from some really large, sore, stubborn blemishes and I wanted to get rid of them before my birthday (very important to have clear skin on your birthday, especially when you’re turning 40). I was really at a loss at how best to reduce them and the lovely people at Tropic suggested this face mask & I haven’t looked back!

Clear Skin Blemish Mask Tropic Skincare

Tropic Skincare Clear Skin Blemish Fighting Face Mask

This bold green blemish busting mask is white & green clay based so it is great at drawing out all the build-up of grease, bacteria and pollution from your pores whilst working with bamboo charcoal to reduce oil and balance out your skin. I slather it all over my face at least twice a week – but when I have a blemish I quite often just apply this to that area, more of a targeted treatment and that really works well to reduce redness and also calm the inflamed spot. It contains so many lovely ingredients that will help you not only reduce blemishes & mattify skin but also keep the build-up of blemish-causing bacteria at bay, so you’re less likely to suffer from breakouts.

● Willow bark extracts, rich in beta hydroxy salicylic acids, travel deep into your pores to unclog built up sebum.

● Cayenne pepper and ginger extracts kill blemish-causing bacteria at the source.

● Green and white clays work to dry out spots and stop them from increasing in size.

● Charcoal and spirulina work to draw out toxins and tighten pores.

● Raspberry leaf and goji berry extracts reduce redness and calm skin.

Another pretty cool thing about this mask, besides the fact that it is gentle, doesn’t dry out your skin or leave it feeling uncomfortably tight is that it dries dark green in more oily areas with larger pores and it dries a lighter green in more balanced areas so you can quickly see where your skin needs a little help. For me, my oily areas are my cheeks & chin.

I saw a huge difference in my skin and I know I have this mask to thank for that. My breakouts are less frequent and I always use this Clear Skin mask as soon as a blemish starts appearing. That way I know it has more chance of not becoming inflamed and It clears all the bacteria and excess sebum build-up ASAP. It is a great mask to have in your beauty routine, especially if you suffer from oily skin that likes to breakout.

Tropic Skincare Tamanu Healing Balm

Now on to what I think is the star of the show – this is one of those beauty/skincare products you stumble upon very rarely that completely blows you away. It looks quite ordinary, apart from being green and all in one beauty balms often get overlooked because people don’t quite know how they fit into their routine but this new release from Tropic is EPIC. I have been singing it’s praises to family and friends since it landed on my doorstep almost 2 months ago.

Green Gold Tropic Tamanu Healing Balm

So this skin-loving green balm is made with tamanu oil (also known as ‘green gold’), which is an age-old remedy trusted for centuries in the Polynesian islands to stimulate skin renewal, Tropic have blended it hydrating, soothing monoi and cocoa butters so it is hydrating and calming and if that wasn’t enough it also contains antioxidant-rich blackcurrant extract and raspberry seed oil.

So this balm has so many skin loving, healing and protecting ingredients. It really is the best multi-purpose product I have ever used. My favourite way to use it is as an eye cream because it is simply one of the most hydrating products I’ve used. I also dab it on the odd blemish to help calm and sooth the inflames skin.

I even took it on my recent trip to Amsterdam, in my hand luggage so I could use it on the plane. It does come in a handy 20ml travel size but I took my 60ml tub and I used it as my lip balm, eye cream, on my cuticles as well as on a few blemishes and a couple of pesky blemish scars. So I really put it to good use! I just love how hydrating, nourishing and gentle it is and I think it is incredible that it can be used in so many ways. It now comes everywhere with me!

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.

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.

I give it a quick shake to disperse the shimmer particles then I  massage a good amount on my arms, legs and décolletage.
