Tropic Pure Plant Skin Care Vitamin Toner


Tropic Pure Plant Skin Care Vitamin Toner

I wanted to revisit a product I briefly reviewed last year (link).  You all know my favourite skincare brand is Tropic Pure Plant Skincare. This is a brand I have followed for many years, before I started blogging. Last year facial toner was not part of my beauty routine but in recent months I can see the benefits for my skin.  You will have notice I have become fickle with toners, I haven't been repurchasing the same one.  After finishing up everything I already owned I decided to go back to Tropic Vitamin Toner.

Tropic products are vegan approved, BUAV approved plus free from alcohol, parabens, mineral oils, petrochemicals and synthetic fragrances.  The ingredients for the Vitamin Toner are Aloe Vera Juice, Rose Water, Orange Blossom Water, Vegetable Glycerin, Vitamin C, Cucumber Extract, Pomegranate Extract, Cranberry Extract, White Tea Extract, Gentle Preservative System (phenoxyethanol, ethylhexylglycerin extract).

The range has had another makeover. The outer box lists the ingredients in English and below this the INCI version.  I have not seen this before normally INCI ingredients are listed with English in brackets. 

The bottle has changed to a spray top which to be honest is a bit of a love/hate for me.  Spritzing my face is refreshing but I do like to saturate a cotton pad and sweep across my face.  Of course you can spray a cotton pad but it’s not the same as pouring.  It takes a little longer to soak the pad but I guess using less cotton pads is better for the environment (swings & roundabouts). 

The UK is finally having the heat wave we have longed for and my tip for surviving the heat is to keep toner in the fridge.  Your toner will be nice and chilled and should help cool you down.

Since my last review Tropic have made slight changes to the ingredients of their toner, it now contains rose water. I know many people love the fragrance of rose but it is not one of my favourite scents so I was initially disappointed that the toner had changed.  However I will say that this particular rose fragrance is light and not artificial so I tolerate it.

Overall, despite the fragrance I still like how the toner feels on my skin.  It refreshes without feeling dry or tight. The toner also helps remove the last traces of makeup after cleansing.  You can purchase direct from Tropic website or  Feelunique.com. A 120ml bottle costs £11.95, not the cheapest but in my mind certainly worth the money.

  3. I do hate when companies mess around with their ingredients when there's nothing wrong with the product, but I'm glad you can still get on with it. I do like the idea of the spray bottle though so it's easy to freshen up with a quick spritz.
    It's a shame they've added the rose water though as I've just found my skin reacts badly to it, so sadly I won't be able to give this a go :( xx

    1. I agree it is annoying when you love a product and they go and revamp it, such a shame about the rose water. I find it very difficult to find a toner without it because it's supposed to be great for the skin it gets added to lots of natural toners

  4. Lovely review Sarah, this is definitely on my list of items to try. I really like rose water toners, so I'm sure I'll enjoy this. I also prefer a spray bottle. I'm not a fan of using the cotton pads, I think you waste a lot of product this way as well as getting through tonnes of pads. Although I like to spray / pour the toner on to my hands, rather than spritzing it straight onto my face :)

    1. Interesting to hear your thoughts about a spray bottle. I don't feel I waste product when using a cotton pad and I only use one cotton pad per day. I can not get on with pouring into my hands that can be problematic for my eczema and I have butter fingers and tend to spill things. Thanks for your comment, I like hearing how other people use the same products :)
