Tropic Skincare is a brand that was set up by Susan Ma, who was a contestant on The Apprentice during the 2011 series. She didn't win but has set up Tropic Skincare with Lord Alan Sugar and have created a brand with products free from all the nasty stuff like parabens, oils etc, instead using natural ingredients like plant extracts to create cruelty free and natural products. I am really getting into natural and organic products lately so was really excited to try the Tropic Organic Facial Elixir Oil* from the range. 

The Facial Oil is designed to be used as a night treatment before you apply moisutriser. It contains a blend of organic oils including kiwi oil, jojoba oil,  pomegranate seed oil, rosehip oil and moringa seed oil. The oils are said to work together to improve skin elasticity, giving noticeably smoother, supple and youthful skin.

The bottle is a droplet style bottle meaning you shake it to get the few drops of oil you need out. This is great for me as it means I don't waste any product or have it come pouring out! I love the design too and think it looks elegant on my dressing table, I wouldn't travel with it though as I can imagine it getting a bit messy. 

The oil is quite wet if that makes sense and you only need a small amount. I like the consistency as it's easy to apply and sinks into skin quickly. I massage this into my skin after cleansing at night and leave it for a couple of minutes before I apply moisturiser. I do this every other night and on inbetween days I add a couple of drops to my moisturiser (oily skins could just do this).

Since using this my skin has looked a whole lot better than usual. My face feels pampered in the mornings and is much more smooth and hydrated. I have fairly young skin so elasticity isn't a problem much yet for me but this has really helped with getting rid of dryness and generally bringing a lot more radiance to my skin. I really like this product and think it is working well to sort my skin out and banish the dryness!

The Facial Elixir Oil costs £30 for 50ml which I think is a fair price as it will last a very long time and I would definitely consider purchasing it when I reach the end of this one. 

Do you use a facial oil?

  2. Tropic Skincare are fab, I love that they use natural ingredients! I don't use a facial oil, I'm not sure how my dry and sensitive skin would react.

    1. I love their range of products and that they are natural :) I'm sure this would work well for you. It's soothed my dry skin without causing breakouts or creating problems. If you were very worried you could just add a few drops to moisturiser to see how your skin works with it!xx

  4. I'm tempted by this, do you think it's good for spot prone skin? Or would it just make it worse being an oil? xx

    1. I think it would help your skin as the ingredients are all natural and free from the things that would aggravate and bring out spots. Also it contains jojoba oil which is known for working well with spot prone or acne skin!xx
