Festive calendars are great, aren’t they? Whether it’s a chocolate-a-day to count down towards Christmas or a bells-and-whistles set from a favourite cruelty-free beauty brand, there’s just something very special about opening up those little doors and seeing what awaits you on the other side. You can imagine my jubilation, then, when Tropic Skincare’s 12 Days Of Tropic Gift Collection* arrived in the post; I could hardly contain my excitement as I opened the parcel.
As it is a collection of gifts intended to be opened on the 12 days immediately following (and including) Christmas day, the 12 Days of Tropic Gift Collection truly is a calendar that keeps on giving. Comprising of 12 skincare and beauty pieces (including 4 full-size products and one special gift exclusive to the set), the collection is a wonderful introduction to the brand, with something to offer for everyone. The calendar includes a card detailing what you can expect to find in each drawer, although I am doing my best not to peek and to have a little surprise every day!
Each item is packaged in a small canvas bag, and instructions for how to use it are included on the drawer it comes in. Some of my firm favourites are included in adorable miniature form: Super Greens Nutrient Boost Serum, Sun Drops Gradual Tanning Facial Serum and Spotlight Cream Highlighter among them. There are also a few new-to-me gifts such as the Organic Elixir and Good Skin Day Serum which I’ve been looking forward to trying for a while.
Getting into cruelty-free skincare can be daunting, particularly when you’re not sure which brands to try. Purchasing for a new routine is expensive, and you can’t always know how your skin will react until you’ve had a chance to try things out. Gift collections and calendars such as Tropic Skincare’s one are a great introduction to a brand without the expense and risk of investing in full-size products which may not agree with your skin. This one in particular is also testament to how versatile and luxurious vegan and cruelty-free skincare can be!
I am very much looking forward to opening the drawers of my 12 Days of Tropic Gift Collection, sat under my ever-so-slightly garishly decorated tree, with a small glass of vegan Baileys over ice in my hand.
Thank you so much to Tropic Skincare for gifting me this beautiful collection. Head here for a full list of its contents and for more information.
