Tropic Skincare Pure Effects Beauty Booster*
I’ve used Tropic make-up a couple of times now and I absolutely loved their Mineral Eyeshadow Palette so when I got the chance to try their new BB Serum, I was definitely keen. I love the fact that the company inspires women in business (I’m somewhat of a secret feminist) and they have literally just exploded in a very short time – going from being relatively unknown to becoming a market leader in the network marketing cosmetics industry.
One of the best things about all of the Tropic products is that they’re really natural and they’re also certified cruelty free and vegan, which can sometimes be difficult to find and are perfect for the socially conscious of us out there.
The Pure Effects Beauty Booster is new in at Tropic and I’ve been using it for the past week. I absolutely adore the product. I’ve mentioned before (on more than a few occasions!) that I have really bad skin and, for a BB cream, this product really provides a great amount of coverage. I felt completely comfortable wearing it on its own for the day time and it gave me a really flawless complexion.
It’s light and easy to apply – blending perfectly. It’s got a bit of a strange consistency which I wasn’t really expecting when I squeezed some of the product out. It’s a lot more like a liquid than traditional BB creams making it a sort of cross between a serum, a moisturiser and a foundation.
Top Tip It says “Shake Me” on the top of the bottle and make sure you do. I made the mistake of not shaking the bottle and all that came out was clear liquid! Ooops!
I love the way this BB makes your skin look – it gives you a beautiful glow and a real luminescence to your complexion and it’s perfect for picking you up if you’ve had a heavy night on the prosecco or if you’ve been burning the candle at both ends.
Here’s the science bit! The Beauty Booster has SPF 20 which is great for preventing sun damage and ageing. As I’ve got older this has become really important to me in products, especially as I’m increasingly conscious of ageing – well, I am approaching 30! It also contains hero ingredient of the moment hyaluronic acid as well as active minerals and superfruit complexes which all help to keep the skin nourished and hydrated during wear.
