Review: Tropic Skincare's 'Smoothing Cleanser'

Tropic Skincare Smoothing Cleanser

Tropic Skincare Smoothing Cleanser


So a couple of weeks ago, Tropic Skincare sent me this little gem. Tropic are a skincare company that use natural ingredients and plant extracts in their products which aim to 'make a positive difference to the health, vitality and appearance of your skin'. I'm a massive fan of companies who use 100% natural ingredients as I feel as though I'm not putting anything particularly 'bad' onto my skin, therefore *fingers crossed* no pesky breakouts. This came at the perfect time as I'd just ran out of the current product I was using, so here's what I thought about their Smoothing Cleanser...

I'm very cautious when it comes to adding new products into my skin care routine; I always feel that my skins becomes comfortable with a certain combination of products and if I change that, I'm scared of the possible negative effect it may have on my skin. This specific product is said to 'gently clean and buff to reveal soft, hydrated & radiantly smooth skin'. I'm very pleased to say that it does just that! Within the box, you receive 120ml of cleanser in a pump bottle (instant bonus!) and an Organic Bamboo Face Cloth to wipe away the product once it's done it's magic... Even though I'm beginning to see a slow improvement in the overall condition of my skin due to a mix of products I'm using, I can definitely see the amazing differences this alone is making. 

Upon first wash, I immediately was drawn to the pleasant scent; Hints of Avocado and Green Tea - Mmm! You begin with applying 2-4 pumps of the cream onto your dry skin, however, I feel that 2 is more than enough. This begins to break down and dissolve any make-up your wearing and then you rinse it all away with warm water. I was super impressed as I could see straight away that the cleanser had removed all my makeup and had even dissolved my mascara - something my previous cleanser couldn't do! You then reapply another pump onto your wet skin to cleanse and hold the warm cloth over your face to open your pores. Using the cloth in circular motions to exfoliate, you then gently remove the rest of the cleanser, splash a bit of cold water on your face to close your pores and job done! After the first couple of washes (even though I had breakouts for other reasons) I could notice a complete difference in my skin. It's become much softer and and definitely a lot smoother - I think this along with another product has definitely helped reduce the small bumps under my skin. I've loved using one application on a morning to really wake me up and get my skin 'ready for the day' and two applications (like above) on a night to remove make-up and generally cleanse the skin. I could not be happier with this product and I'm so grateful of the wonders it's beginning to work! I can honestly say that I'm starting to feel completely comfortable leaving the house with zero make-up on after using this, it leaves me so fresh faced.

What are your favourite cleansers to use? Would you think of purchasing this one? Let me know, thanks for reading!
