It’s just over a year ago since I spoke about Tropic skincare and the products I was testing out at the time. For those who don’t know, Tropic is vegan and cruelty-free skincare and beauty company that is sold through ambassadors a bit like Avon (but better). Last time I was fairly new to the brand after being introduced to the products at a party hosted by one of my good friends, Romily. Since then, I’ve expanded my collection and Romily is now an ambassador. Now I have easy access to purchasing the products, which is definitely bad for my bank account!
My advice when testing out the brand is to start off trying a few items, preferably ones you’ll use regularly to see how they work for your skin. I picked up the Cleanser and Toner because I was running out of my current ones and it seemed sensible to try the basic skincare first. Once I’d decided my skin hadn’t thrown any tantrums after changing up my skincare routine, I was happy to try out some new products.
Smoothing Cleanser Complexion Purifier (and Bamboo Face Cloth)
As I mentioned, this was one of the first items I bought from Tropic. Starting with skincare seemed like a sensible choice to gauge how my skin would react. When you purchase the cleanser, it comes with a bamboo cloth to avoid any irritation when you want to remove your makeup or cleanse your face. I think this is a great idea because each time I buy one I get a nice new face cloth and one to use while my other gross makeup covered ones are in the wash!
Vitamin Toner Pore Refining Mist
It’s common for people to miss out toner in their skincare, but it’s a really important step. Essentially, it helps to remove the remaining dirt and makeup that might still be lurking on your skin that your cleanser missed. This toner is so refreshing because you just have to spray it straight onto your face and it sinks into your skin doing its job almost immediately. I really love how soothing this is with the addition of aloe vera; it can be even be used as a setting spray to keep your makeup in place.
Skin Feast Nourishing Cream Concentrate
A lot of moisturisers I have used in the past have been extremely heavy on the skin and take way too long to actually soak in to do their job. I was told by Romily, from her fantastic training that skincare should take around five minutes. With Tropic, you can do the 3 skincare steps straight after each other rather than waiting for each product to sink in. I adore the highly citrus scent of this product, even more so when it’s doing my skin the world of good.
Super Greens Nutrient Boost Oil
Now, this oil may not be that aesthetically pleasing to the eye but I was willing to look past that to tackle my skin at full force. Made up of kale, broccoli, vitamin c and green coffee this green wonder is definitely a winner once you get past the strong smell! I was excited to see how it combats redness, blemishes and sensitive skin and it’s ticking along nicely since I’ve started introducing into my skincare routine.
Fruit Peel Resurfacing Serum
Another product that smells so good you could eat it, it’s the fruit derived ingredients that do it. This serum is designed to be applied before you go to bed so it can remove all the nasty toxins from your skin overnight. I try and use this maybe once a week to make sure my skin gets the break it needs.
Clear Skin Blemish Fighting Mask
Here we are again with a blemish-busting product; can you tell that’s one of my main skin concerns!? I absolutely love the selfcare aspect of applying a face mask, especially when it’s bright green! A little goes a long way with this pot of goodness, so don’t slather it on like sun cream.
