PRODUCT REVIEW – Tropic Skincare Tamanu Balm

Following on from my earlier review of the Tropic Skincare Smoothing Cleanser, my next product review just had to be this absolutely brilliant little pot – a total skin saviour!

I discovered this product when a fellow image consultant and Tropic Skincare Ambassador came to my home to do a pamper party for me and my friends.

I was a little sceptical at first and the smell could be a little off-putting for some,

although it’s by no means offensive and can perhaps be best described as ‘herby’. 

Tropic claim that it is great for anything from rosacea to insect bites and lots more besides, and, as with all their products, it is entirely natural, vegan and cruelty free.

Having had an itchy rash on my shin for over a year, for which I had tried everything I could think of over the counter, including: itch relief cream, Sudacreme, antihistamine cream, Calomine & aqueous cream and E45, all of which had failed to do any more than temporarily calm the iritation, I decided to try Tamanu Balm.

I used the balm just twice a day (morning and night).  After 5 days the rash had cleared up and has not returned.  

To say I was delighted with the result is an understatement.  This little pot is indeed my skin saviour.  

I took it on a recent holiday to Menorca and used it when both my husband and I got bitten and it cleared up the bites quicker than anything else I have used in the past.

I truly believe that everyone should have a pot of Tumanu Balm in their bathroom cabinet.

It is proven to sooth inflamed or dry skin, reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks, helps to accelerate the healing of minor cuts and scrapes (although should not be used on open wounds), relieves itchy bug bites and provides ultimate hydration for the skin.

The balm contains tamanu oil from the Polynesian islands (used for centuries to promote the acceleration of skin healing), blackcurrant and raspberry seed oils – rich in antioxidents, and monoi butter to help hydrate the skin.

The full size jar (60ml) is £32.00 and the mini (20ml) is £16.00 – it’s worth every penny!
