Who doesn’t want to have a good skin day? As a rosacea sufferer I never have a good skin day, so thank goodness for good foundations! So when a product comes through the door that’s called Tropic Good Skin Day Resurfacing Serum it’d be rude not to try it!
Tropic skincare were a brand I hadn’t heard of previously. Inspired by the tropical North Queensland area of Australia and in particular the plants and botanicals, they aim to provide natural beauty products that give amazing results. Interestingly, Lord Sugar is a 50% shareholder after Susan Ma appeared on The Apprentice!
The Good Skin Day serum is a natural resurfacing exfoliant serum that relies on natural AHAs to remove dead and dry skin. Ingredients include:
• Lime pearl extract, glycolic acids and willow bark BHA exfoliate for a softer, smoother skin surface
• Papaya enzymes and AHA fruit complexes refine and tighten pores
• Concentrated hyaluronic acid delivers a boost of skin hydration
As a sensitive skin sufferer I was interested to see the effects I’d achieve. I already use AHA cuticle removers and I know how effective they can be.
The directions say to use one to three times a week. I went for once a week use as I didn’t require intense exfoliation as I use a Magnitone and I didn’t want to aggravate my delicate skin.
On application I experienced a very, very mild tingling sensation (it does say on the packaging to expect this). It was by no means uncomfortable and lasted mere minutes. I used 2-3 pumps after my evening cleanse and on waking my skin felt incredibly soft and smooth. I could notice a difference in the texture of my skin and found all make up applied more flawlessly than normal. It’s very important to follow the instructions though and use an SPF the next day.
After 3-4 weeks of use the tingling sensation is less each time and I feel my skin now has a good foundation to increase to twice a week, but to be honest once a week is providing great results. If you have drier skin that requires more frequent exfoliation you may want to start using it once or twice a week then once your skin adjusts use three times weekly.
Another great point is that they the serum is vegan friendly and has the leaping bunny symbol to indicate it is both vegan and cruelty free.
