How To Keep That Gorgeous Summer Glow in Winter With Tropic Skincare | Beauty


The beginning of September suddenly feels like it was a lifetime ago but during this time I was currently on holiday with my best friend in Milan. Before I went on holiday I decided to reach out on Twitter for recommendations of tinted moisturisers or light make-up to take with me. There's nothing worse than being in a hot country sweating in the heat and having thick heavy make-up on. 

The lovely team at Tropic Skincare decided to get in touch and send over some products for me to try out whilst on holiday. As you can imagine, I was quite nervous to try out new products on my skin for the first time especially whilst on holiday. I was concerned my skin might react to it. However, I wanted to give it the benefit of the doubt and challenge myself to do something that seemed a little scary however could give great results! I’m definitely the type of person who doesn’t change or alter statement pieces within my skincare routine unless I’m really invested in it. 



I was sent a lovely press release book explaining about all the products and how best to use them. I found this very useful because I wasn’t too sure what exactly to do with a gradual tanning face serum. I was kindly sent the nourishing cream to mix together and then apply after cleansing. I found this surprisingly easy to use, simply apply it all over your face, blend it in with your fingers and make sure it's an even coverage. It adds a lovely subtle and buildable bronze colour to your face which is really easy to work with. It's a natural warmth to the face which I was really pleased with as I was a little concerned it was going to be like applying fake tan to your face! Might have been a little worried that I was going to appear like an umpa-lumpa! Definitely, don't be put off at how dark the sun drops are even though they can be daunting! It creates a soft base which helps to naturally enhance that summer glow. I was pleasantly surprised at how great this product was. Sun Drops is what I was the most nervous to try just because it was something so new and unknown to me. This is a product I feel can be used all year round, especially if you have quite pale skin like me. It's a natural-looking warmth. 



Whilst trying and testing Skin Revive I was glad to see that it didn't leave my skin feeling dry. It applied the right about of hydration to my skin that was needed which was whilst in 30-degree heat. I have only used this moisturiser combined with the sun drops so I can't say what it's like on its own however I can imagine it is very similar, leaving a smooth feeling on your face ready for primer. 




The tinted skin shade was exactly the product that I was hoping for! I was amazed at the fact it is SPF 50! This was something that was really important to me. This was in the shade Light/Medium and it was the perfect match for my skin. I applied this with a normal foundation and it gave a great light matte coverage. It wasn't shiny or heavy on my skin, it felt as if I didn't have any make-up on however it gave a warm healthy glow to my skin. I then applied the rest of my make-up to complete my look. I often now use this on days where I don't want to apply a full face of make-up however I still want something to give me some warm and colour, giving my skin a healthy glow. 

Have you ever used any Tropic Skincare products?
