Tropic is a relatively new skincare and makeup brand that I have just discovered. I have to confess I had never heard about it until one of my friends introduced me through a ‘Tropic Pamper Experience’ She raved about the skincare and I have to say that after trying it, now I can see why.
A bit of background to Tropic. It is a natural and cruelty free skincare brand which has been backed by Lord Sugar. He invested in the brand after the developer Susan Ma appeared on the Apprentice. It is currently the only company he has invested in outside of the Apprentice winners. The company started with one signature product ‘Body Smooth Polish’ (incidentally I have this and it is amazing), this was handmade in Susan’s Kitchen using fresh Australian inspired ingredients and grew from there. What I love about this brand is that the products are still freshly handmade, in an albeit larger beauty kitchen in Surrey daily, to ensure the products are as fresh as possible.
The products are sold via ‘Pamper Parties’ where guests can experience the products for themselves. The range now also includes makeup and there are some seriously great products in the range.
The standout products for me are the Smoothing Cleanser & Organic Bamboo Cloth, Face Smooth Brightening Polish and the original product in the lineup Body Smooth Refreshing Polish.
Smoothing Cleanser & Organic Bamboo Cloth – this hot cloth cleanser comes complete with a 100% organic bamboo cloth to buff away dead skin cells. It contains Avocado, Golden Jojoba Oil and Green Tea and smells seriously good (like all of the products.) It has a rich creamy consistency and leaves skin glowing after use. The organic bamboo cloth is really gentle on the skin whilst still lifting dead skin. It has already won several awards including winner in the 2014 Natural Health Awards. This has become my new favourite cleanser and is great on my dry/sensitive skin.
Face Smooth Brightening Polish – I have been looking for a new exfoliator for a while now so already had this on my radar when I attended the pamper party. I was totally won over after Georgina my friend and local Tropic Ambassador demonstrated this product on the back of my hand and I felt how soft my skin was. I used the polish this morning on my face and it left my skin smoother and brighter, and it gave me a great canvass to apply my foundation. The polish contains Acai Berries and gentle Hydroxy Acids to help brighten the skin tone and stimulate cell renewal.
Body Smooth Refreshing Polish – The original Tropic product. This contains organic Sea Minerals, Lemon Myrtle and Vitamin E. It has a oily salty/sugary consistency. It buffs away dead skin cells whilst nourishing the skin at the same time. The addition of the Lemon Myrtle ensures skin feels refreshed and smells gorgeous after use. This product has been featured in both Tatler and Vogue and is fast becoming a ‘hero’ product. It is also great for prepping the skin before applying self tan and ensures you get a really smooth even finish.
I now have a bit of a wishlist and after seeing their makeup range too I am now coveting several products including the Skin Revive Nourishing Cream Concentrate a glow giving moisturiser, the Complete Contour Collections, seriously good contouring palettes to help achieve the current trend for chiselled cheekbones and the Lash Extension Kit, a lengthening mascara giving some of the more well known versions using fibres to extend lashes a run for their money. No doubt my list will have lengthened by the time I go to my next Tropic Pamper Party. This is definitely a brand to try.
