On Thursday night, I hosted a ‘Tropic’ party at my house as a return to work treat for myself and some friends. It was great to think that after the first few hours back at work, that there was something lovely happening to make us all chill out for a while.
Our Tropic Ambassador, Lisa, is super friendly and a friend from the teaching world so she knew exactly what we were going through in the first couple of days back at school. She was able to really identify with us and how all of the products would help each of us. We weren’t all teachers and she could recommend certain products to certain people, specific to their age, skin type and any skin problems.
I was really impressed by the Tropic range. All of the products are Vegan friendly, cruelty free (no animal testing) and contain very little, if any, chemicals. Only a few products do have some preservatives in as demanded by law. The company’s founder Susan Ma (The Apprentice 2011 competitor) is passionate about natural products and Lisa told us that her motto is “If you wouldn’t eat it, why would you put it on your skin?” After all, your skin is your biggest organ.
Now much to the horror of my work colleagues, and my mother, and my friends (the latter 2 were already fully aware of this so it came as no shock) I am terrible with having a face skin care routine. Really terrible, and I know this. After Christmas this year, I treated myself to a decent foundation, cleanser and moisturiser. I have used them. Although, did you know that these are designed to last about 3 months per product?! Who knew?! I’m still going on the same cleanser and moisturiser as I bought in January. This revelation and my colleagues reactions sent me bright red and Lisa very professionally carried on giving me my demonstration facial, but now pointed out even more benefits of each stage.
I think everyone is concerned that I’m going to look like an old woman far before my time! Well, hopefully not any more. I loved the smell and texture of the products. The ethos of the company is something that I feel really comfortable with as a “grown up” – I use that term loosely because I obviously haven’t been looking after my skin as a “grown up” should.
So I’ve ordered a few products including the fabulous Lip Love and the Vitamin Toner. I also fell in love with the waterproof eye liner – it’s like magic …no smudging at all. Perfect for my tired teacher/mama eyes as was the Eye Refresh Roll-On.
It’s always a nice perk when there’s a hostess gift involved too, and I was lucky enough to bag a Skin Revise Nourishing Cream Concentrate for hosting. I could have bought so much more though. A couple of my colleagues with eczema were really interested in the products as they have a proven record with hugely reducing/eliminating eczema and psoriasis such as Tamanu Bam. I think one bought it to try it as Tropic offer a 30 day money back guarantee so she can really test it to see if it makes a difference.
I would definitely recommend booking a party with Lisa if you live in the Sussex area or near to Crawley (she travelled down from Crawley to Worthing for my party). If you are interested in hosting a party, visit Lisa’s website. From here you can book a party or order products directly from her. Handily, as Tropic wants to be as environmentally friendly as possible, their catalogues are available online and are really accessible.
My friends and I had a great time and it was a perfect way to relax. I know that they were all really impressed with the products and how natural they felt.
