• A 100% Vegan & Cruelty Free Skincare Range: Testing Out Tropic Skincare | First Impressions

    testing out tropic skincare

    As soon as I turned cruelty free with my cosmetics and skincare I was looking for new brands. Here I am testing out Tropic Skincare, which I have heard a lot about. A good friend of mine Ruby is a Tropic Skincare Ambassador. I instantly messaged her asking if she’d want to team up. And work together and she was up for the idea. Then I ordered their Travel Essentials Kit. Ruby kindly included quite a few samples of their products for me to try which was really kind of her.

    I initially ordered their Tropic Skincare Travel Essentials Kit which contains 5 products in miniature form so they are perfect for travelling and are all hand luggage approved, all for a complete skincare routine. The products included are their Smoothing Cleanser and Bamboo Cloth. Vitamin Toner Mist, Skin Revive, Organic Elixir and their Lip Love Balm.


    Tropic Skincare is an award winning skincare and makeup company that is cruelty free. And made from completely 100% natural and exotic ingredients from the Tropics. Where some of the world’s most nutritious plants grow through an abundance of sunshine. The company was created by Susan Ma who appeared on the 2010 series of The Apprentice. Lord Sugar fired her because she believed her company could create a £10 million turn over and he didn’t believe her. But she proved him wrong!

    Susan’s story started back in 2004, when she was aged just 15. She had created her first ever product the Body Smooth Polish in her kitchen at home. Then she began selling it on Greenwich Market in London. And now to this day her company has been awarded 34 prestigious awards.
