Well this reivew of Tropic’s Skin Review Nourishing Cream Concentrate has been a long time coming – so long in fact that I think Tropic Skincare line may have undergone not one but two redesigns! Oops!
The product I reviewed looked like this –
Tropic Skincare Skin Revive Nourishing Cream Concentrate contains no water, opting for Aloe Vera Juice as the base, so the ingredients are more concentrated than you might find in other products. The ingredients, what a list! There are 20 different fruit, flower and seed extracts, all skin-loving botanicals. The list reads like a skincare aficionados dream – hydrating aloe vera juice, plumping organic rosehip oil, hydrating jojoba oil, nourishing macadamia nut oil, shea butter, vitamin E-rich avocado oil, red raspberry seed oil, Kakadu plum, to name but a few.
I tried this Tropic Skincare Skin Revive Nourishing Cream Concentrate in the summer months but as my skin tends to be quite oily in the summer, it wasn’t quite right. I revisited in the winter months and it was the right time to give it a try – I found it especially beneficial around the time I returned from holiday, really nourishing and repairing.
Now the instructions for Tropic Skincare Skin Revive said to use 2-3 pumps, however, I found this to be rather generous for my face and neck, so I was using 1-2 pumps. I found this more than enough.
The texture was midweight and the absorption of the product was quick. The scent of the product was a beautiful floral with rose geranium, lavender mixed with a touch of sweet orange and frankincense. A lovely balance of floral-citrus-spice.
The size of Tropic Skincare Skin Revive product was deceptive, it looked like a fairly small container that wouldn’t last me that long (in the grand scheme of things). It really was the tube that kept on giving, it lasted months and months! I suppose when something is concentrated you, therefore, use less of it and it will last longer, but nevertheless, I was impressed with how long it kept providing moisturiser for me, for my skin, for!
