Build your own bespoke skincare routine with Tropic Skincare À LA CARTE Collection

I have been loving Tropic Skincare so I am back with another review.

Everyone’s skin is beautifully different, so the combination of products you use should be as unique as you. Featuring our multi-award-winning ABC Skincare essentials, plus two targeted extras and a treatment of your choice, our money-saving Complete Collections allow you to build a brilliantly bespoke routine.

I love the idea of a bespoke skincare routine that I get to choose myself. I created my own bespoke collection based on my main skincare goals which are:

  • To achieve a brighter, more glowing and healthier complexion
  • To refine skin and minimise the appearance of pores
  • To improve the appearance of scars and rejuvenate skin texture and tone.


Pick your cleanser.

What I chose:

CLEAR SKIES cleansing powder

Expertly formulated for blemish-prone skin, this powerful, water-activated powder refines, clarifies and smooths complexions.

Packed with powerful plant actives, the formula will transform into a soft and creamy foam with just a few drops of water.


Rice and Corn Derived Starch, Tapioca Starch*, Coconut Derived Cleansing Agent, Silica, Plant Derived Humectants, Corn Derived Citric Acid, Maize Derived Chelating Agent, Corn Sugar Gum, Vegetable Starch, Spirulina Extract, Plant Derived Enzymes, Coconut Pulp Extract, Hyaluronic Acid, Vegetable Charcoal,
*from organic agriculture

How to use:

  • Shake half to a full teaspoon of the powder into your palm and then mix with a few drops of water to activate.
  • Spread between your hands to create a creamy lather, before massaging into your face using circular motions, carefully avoiding the delicate eye area.
  • Rinse to remove any excess and splash with a little cold water afterwards for ultimate refreshment.
  • Use once or twice daily on its own, or as a second cleanse after Smoothing Cleanser.

I absolutely LOVE this product! The formula is gentle enough for daily use to deeply cleanse the skin and slough off dead skin cells. It also helps to refine the pores, brighten and smooth the skin leaving it feeling soft, smooth and clean but never stripped.

My teenage son is acne-prone and has been loving using this daily. It has made a huge difference to his skin and helped to keep blemishes at bay.


Pick your toning essence

What I chose:

JUICY GREENS exfoliating toning essence

Enriched with a dewy cocktail of polyhydroxy and alpha hydroxy acids to hydrate, gently exfoliate and improve the absorption of the products you apply afterwards, it’s expertly crafted for even the most sensitive skin types. 

Plus, if there’s any dirt and impurities you’ve missed when cleansing, this will mop them up with ease and leave you with smoother, more refined skin.


Aloe Vera Juice [Reconstituted]*, Prebiotic Ferment, Vegetable Glycerin**, Plant Derived Humectant, Vitamin B3, Maize Derived Poly Hydroxy Acid, Mandelic Acid, Kiwi Fruit Juice, Plant Derived Humectant, Coconut Derived Emulsifier, Prebiotic Alpha and Beta Glucan, Green Tea Leaf Juice, Aloe Vera Leaf Extract*, Corn Derived Chelating Agent, Tamarind Polysaccharides, Cucumber Fruit Juice, Maize Derived Citric Acid, Skin Conditioning Fruit Fiber, Vegetable Starch, Chlorophyll

How to use:

  • After cleansing, release a few drops onto clean hands, spread evenly across your palms, and press gently into your complexion.
  • Alternatively, shake a few drops onto a cotton pad and swipe all over your face.

This toner is great for gently exfoliating and smoothing out my skin while boosting moisture and prepping my skin to better absorb further products.


Pick your moisturiser

What I chose:

SKIN FEAST nourishing moisturiser

This daily moisturiser feeds skin with a complete diet of antioxidants and essential lipids, all washed down with a good glug of hydration. Available in an unscented version that’s perfect for all skin sensitivities, and a scented version with additional notes of rose geranium, neroli, and mandarin oils.

After cleansing, toning, and applying your favourite serums, massage 2-3 pumps of the nourishing formula into your face.

I chose the scented version which has a lovely citrus scent. I love the creamy, silky smooth consistency which my skin just drinks up.

It absorbs well into the skin leaving it soft, smooth and nourished.


Pick your weekly treatment

What I chose:

ELECTRIC BLOOM brightening tightening mask (with free mask spatula)

For an all-round brighter, firmer complexion, reach for this mask. A potent powerhouse of nature’s brighteners – including its namesake, the electric daisy – this organic mask is like a workout for your skin. While electric daisy extract brightens and tightens complexions, kaolin clay gently empties out pores without drying or stripping the skin. Rich in vitamin C and fatty acids, sea buckthorn spurs on collagen production for plumper, brighter skin, while AHAs work to resurface.


Aloe Vera Juice [Reconstituted]*, Kaolin Clay, Vegetable Glycerin**, Bentonite Clay, Prebiotic Ferment, Plant Derived Humectants, Alpha Hydroxy Acids Derived from Maize and Grape Juice, Maize Derived Polyhydroxy Acid, Sugar Beet Lactic Acid, Aloe Vera Leaf Extract*, Agave Syrup*, Sea Buckthorn Berry Oil*, Vitamin E, Safflower Oil*, Electric Daisy Extract*, Coenzyme Q10, Extracts from Oat Kernel and Turmeric Root, Gentle Preservatives from Star Anise and Basil, Corn Sugar Gum, pH Balancer, Natural Parfum, Sweet Orange Oil*, Component of Organic Essential Oil
*from organic agriculture, **mixture of organic and non-organic sources

I opted for the electric bloom mask to target dullness. I apply an even layer to my face using the Mask Spatula for easy application. Leave for 10-20 minutes before rinsing with warm water.

I use this twice a week and it leaves my skin more balanced, brighter and smoother.


Pick your daily treatment

What I chose:

FRUIT PEEL resurfacing serum

Bursting with natural acids, this facial exfoliating serum gently gets rid of dead skin cells and reduces dullness. We’ve used an intelligent trio of alpha, beta, and polyhydroxy acids in this powerful formula. Derived from fresh fruit, the acids exfoliate at different levels due to their varying molecular size (which also means less sensitivity), effectively removing build-up and boosting cell renewal.

Also infused with refining papaya enzymes and brightening Australian lime pearl, you’ll reveal healthier, more radiant looking skin within 24 hours.


Aloe Vera Juice [Reconstituted]*, Vegetable Glycerin**, Coconut Water*, Prebiotic Ferment, Maize Derived Poly Hydroxy Acid, Alpha Hyroxy Acids from Sugar Beet, Maize and Grape Juice, Plant Derived Humectants, pH Balancer, Coconut Derived Emollient, Willow Bark Extract, Aloe Vera Leaf Extract*, Fruit Extracts of Mango, Pear, Pineapple and Bilberry, Sugar Cane Extract, Sugar Maple Extract, Hyaluronic Acid, Fruit Extracts from Orange, Lemon, Papaya and Lime Pearl, Corn Sugar Gum, Natural Parfum, Plant Phytic Acid

*from organic agriculture, **mixture of organic and non-organic sources

Apply a generous layer to your face, neck and décolletage after cleansing and toning. If you have slightly sensitive skin, start slow and use it just once a week, but if you use this product regularly or have resilient skin, you can opt for alternate evenings/three times a week.

I use this serum 3 times a week as part of my evening routine. Once applied I feel a slight tingling which dissipates. In my morning my skin feels softer, smoother and brighter. I have also noticed a big improvement in my hyper-pigmentation.

GLOW BERRY brightening serum

Boosting radiance, evening out skin tone, and showing dark spots the door, this revolutionary brightening serum takes skin from run down to recharged.

Bursting with brightening vitamin C to lift lacklustre complexions, glow-boosting superberries, and kangaroo paw flower extract to target visible signs of ageing, this game-changing serum provides unrivalled skin confidence with every drop. Light and instantly-absorbing, your daily routine isn’t complete without it.


Aloe Vera Juice [Reconstituted], Plant Derived Humectants, Vegetable Glycerin, Vitamin C, Maize Derived Citric Acid, Prebiotic Ferment, Tranexamic Acid, Sugar Beet Lactic Acid, Coconut Derived Emulsifier, Sodium PCA, Fruit Extracts of Strawberry, Muntries, Riberry and Tasmanian Pepperberry, Aloe Vera Leaf Extract, Kangaroo Paw Flower Extract, Maize Derived Chelating Agent, Hyaluronic Acid, Ergothioneine, Cape Jasmine Flower Extract, Natural Perfume From Strawberry Extract, Vegetable Starch

I like to use this serum in my morning routine. I squeeze 3-6 drops into my palm and gently press into freshly cleansed skin. This serum has a lightweight texture and absorbs well into the skin. It gives my skin a nice dewy glow.

There was promotion when I made my purchase which included 2 free mini serums.

SUPER GREENS nutrient boost oil

This nutrient boosting serum is made from a whole host of green superfoods including; broccoli, chlorophyll, kale and maca root extracts which are said to help with delivering essential vitamins and minerals to the deeper levels of your skin, as well as improving skin health.

It also contains Tamanu oil which is celebrated for its moisturising and soothing properties. Used to treat everything from acne, eczema, and scars, it’s a skin repairing machine.

I was excited to try out this serum as my skin loves Tamanu oil. The scent is very earthy and nutty which I know many are put off by but I actually love it.

  • Massage 3-6 drops into your face and neck in upward, circular motions. Take your time and dedicate just 60 seconds to this mini ritual. It will relax your muscles and boost your circulation, so all that green goodness can soak deeper into the skin.

I love this oil as it has helped to heal and nourish my skin leaving it softer and smoother.

PURE LAGOON blemish prevention serum

Navigating the ups and downs of combination and blemish-prone skin can be tricky. That’s why this naturally blue-hued serum works to regulate sebum production, balance your skin’s microbiome, and clarify your complexion.

I decided to give this serum to my teenage son. He applies it to freshly cleansed skin before moisturising morning and evening. It has made a noticeable difference to his skin. It helps to balance his skin so he has less breakouts.

Have you tried any of these products? I would love to hear from you in the comments.


Till next time…
