Who doesn’t love a good birthday? Cake, hats, bunting, the works? And when the generous host gifts you a fabulous party bag to take away with you? Even better.
After trying out Tropic Skin Care‘s gorgeous Sun Drops earlier in April, I was eager to check out more products from their range. When the brand’s lovely team got in touch to see if I wanted to get involved with their 3rd birthday celebrations, I jumped at the chance. I was kindly sent a party bag* full of treats to try out, which I will be previewing below.
Tropic Skin Care will be giving away 10 unique party bags on Wednesday 4th May. Read on for more details on how to enter their competition, as well as for a chance to win a little something here, too!
Included in my party bag were two lovely lip treats – Lip Love Balm and Colour Click Lipstick in “In Bloom.” The balm – good for use not only on lips but on cuticles, elbows, nails and heels too – smells divine and is ultra-moisturising; just what my dry lips need in this ever-changing weather!
“In Bloom” gives my lips a subtle slick of colour, and is ideal for application on the go. I often want to wear lipstick but find it too stressful to maintain throughout the day; Tropic Skin Care’s offering is super easy to reapply when necessary and gives a gorgeous “your lips but better” tone.
I squealed when I opened this adorable little gift. It has real dried starflowers in it! Tropic Skin Care’s Organic Nail Nectar aims to strengthen and repair nails, with lots of nourishing oils listed as ingredients. I am looking forward to using this as part of my next manicure.
I received two beautiful palettes in my unique party bag – the Sculpting Palette in “Coral Blush” and the Mineral Eyeshadow palette in “Wild Wisteria.” For the sake of the above photos, I have refrained from trying these products out just yet…it was not easy to not swatch them, let me tell you! These colours are just perfect for me and I can’t wait to put some looks together with these, to bring you full reviews in the future.
Stay tuned for details of TWO exciting giveaways!
I have been searching for the perfect hand cream recently, and my search may well have ended. The Superfood Hand Therapy treatment carries a scrumptious tropical scent, and leaves my hands feeling soft without being greasy. Having recently found out what squalene is (insert crying emoji here) I am relieved to see that Tropic Skin Care’s hand cream contains the naturally derived olive squalene alternative. Just what you’d expect, of course, from a Vegan certified brand!
Going straight into my backpack along with the Superfood Hand Therapy is the pocket-sized Tamanu Rescue healing balm. I’d never heard of the Tamanu plant or its soothing properties, and can’t wait to put this to use on my chapped lips and sore spots.
I also received a very handy Tropic Headband – ideal for holding back my fringe on face mask days – which I forgot to take a photo of!
The last product I’ll be previewing in this post is the Face Smooth Brightening Polish. Natural exfoliators are what it’s all about – free of destructive microbeads and packed full of brightening ingredients to leave your skin feeling fresh and renewed. This is a powerful scrub which really works to buff away rough spots and dry patches. I have really been enjoying using it!
| Want to win your own tube of Face Smooth? Of course you do…
Tropic Skin Care were kind enough to send me a second Face Smooth, and as much as I’d like to keep it for myself I thought I’d run a little giveaway for you to win it for yourself! Simply let me know in the contact form which of the products I’ve previewed you would most like to try to be in with a chance of winning your own bottle of the Face Smooth brightening polish. The giveaway is open to UK residents only from now until 11.59pm Saturday May 14th. Good luck!
