The first time I heard of Tropic Skincare was at a sort of spiritual centre that offers different therapies not far from where I live. I only went because my mum’s friend had just started working there and wanted to go and see what they had going on. When we got there they had a massage table, candles on sale, tarot card readings, you name it. They also had someone giving facials, and since I am too much of an introverted person to do anything else, finally agreed to it after my mum kept saying I should have one. I’l admit it felt nice… but also introduced us to the brand! They are cruelty-free, vegan, and only use natural ingredients in all of their products – plus make all of their products themselves in their own lab, so you can be sure that what you are getting is made to an excellent standard.
I haven’t actually tried anything else from the brand yet (slap on the wrist), but I did decide to purchase the Deep Hydration Soothing Cooling Mask | £20 | which claims to be deeply hydrating, antioxidant-rich, and anti-inflammatory. Best for those who need an extra boost of hydration, this mask also has 5* reviews on the website! They suggest leaving it on for 20-30 minutes before washing off, or using it as an overnight mask for extra hydration come morning. I typically tend to use it as a typical 30 minute mask, and let me tell you – it feels lovely.
The texture is somewhere between a cream and a gel, and is very lightweight, so it spreads over your face nicely without needing too much product at once. It dries down slightly, with a tackiness to it, and it will transfer a little if you touch it too heavily. It also smells wonderful, a nice fruity scent that is not overpowering at all, so those that struggle with fragrance should hopefully be fine with this! The packaging feels very luxurious too, it is a glass tub with a plastic lid – for £20 it is really nice, however not that travel friendly since it is glass, but the glass is quite thick though so I don’t think it would shatter completely if you were to accidentally drop it! It also comes with a divider in the lid to stop the product from escaping, which is a nice touch too.
Once it’s been on for about half an hour you do still know that it is there on your face, but is not uncomfortable at all, and there is a faint fragrance that lasts the whole time you are wearing it. Washing it off is super simple, and leaves you with soft, smooth skin to do whatever you want with! I personally like to use this at nighttime before my evening skincare, as that’s when I really load on the hydration so my skin can soak it all up whilst I’m sleeping. So if you’re looking for a hydrating mask that is cruelty-free, vegan, natural, and comes from a smaller company, hopefully this mask with entice you.
I hope after reading this you’ve found a new mask to try out, and that you give me a follow on my blog and other social platforms if you’ve enjoyed it!
