After years of trying different products, treatments, plans and experiences, I have found a few that are staying for good!
I want to share my recommendations with you incase you share some of the same problematic areas as me.
My recommendations are purely based on personal use and experience.
When I love something or feel passionate about something, I want everyone to know!
Health & beauty:
I have a combination skin type. Prone to blemishes but also dehydrated and dry at times.
I cleanse, tone and moisturise using Tropic Skincare Products: View my shop
•Smoothing Cleanser complexion purifier + Bamboo Face Cloth:
I can’t recommend this product enough! I love it so much 💚 It removes my make-up completely using the bamboo cloth. It’s quick and easy to use, suits all skin types and feels so luxurious. It’s a must for your skin regime! Use day and night. BAN THOSE FACE WIPES!
*A little experiment* use as many wipes as you usually would at the end of a day…now grab a white face cloth, immerse in warm water and wipe over your face. Look at how much make-up is left on the cloth! That product would have been left clogging your pores overnight. Your skin repairs whilst you sleep so it’s important to remove all impurities.
The cleanser is as easy as using wipes but feels so much cleaner and leaves you with beautiful glowing skin.
I follow this cleansing routine with;
•Vitamin toner pore refining mist (day & night)
•Skin feast nourishing cream concentrate (moisturiser used day & night) Mixed in with Super Greens nutrient boost oil (at night)
•Eye work rejuvenating serum (day)
•Eye dream age defying overnight butterbalm (night)
•Face smooth brightening polish (an exfoliator used once or twice a week after cleansing)
•To tackle De-hydration/Dryness
-Once a week I will use the Tropic Deep Hydration smooth cooling mask followed by the
-Tropic Fruit peel resurfacing serum (at night)
•To tackle Blemishes/Acne:
-Tropic Pure lagoon blemish prevention serum used before my moisturiser (at night)
-Once a week I will use Tropic Clear Skin blemish-fighting mask
-When I have hormonal break outs I use Differen gel (prescribed)
-Once a week I use the Tropic Face Lift brightening tightening mask
