Review: Tropic Skincare - Organic Lip Satin

A few weeks ago, I won a Twitter competition with Tropic Skincare. I was super pleased as I've wanted to try something from this brand for a while now. Tropic Skincare products are 100% plant-derived so you know that there won't be anything artificial in there to hurt your skin.

I found out recently that Tropic Skincare had started selling cosmetics and I've been keen to try something out. It's not difficult to find natural moisturisers, face washes etc but I do find it tough to search for natural cosmetics. Some of you may know that I absolutely love lip products so, as if they read my mind, I was happy to see that they'd chosen to send me their Organic Lip Satins.

First of all, the packaging is so nice. The box is nice and sturdy with a simple design on the front. I'm definitely going to be keeping this little box to store either my Lip Satins or something else!

The Organic Lip Satins contain organic pomegranates, vanilla extracts, and grapefruit essential oils.

They do two shades at the moment: Nude and Tulip. They sent me both, which was lovely! Nude is pretty much a clear glossy lip balm. Tulip is quite sheer as well but there is the softest touch of pink in there, along with shimmer particles. I love giving my lips a natural rosy tint so Tulip is definitely my favourite out of the two.

I haven't used squeezy tubes for a while now, and I don't recall seeing many around anymore, but I'm glad that Tropic Skincare have chosen to use them. I find that they are so much more practical. You can control how much product you squeeze out, and it has a lovely lipstick-style slant for ease of application.

These glosses go on very smoothly and I was surprised at how moisturising and light they felt. They feel like silky lip balms. The name, Organic Lip Satin, is definitely very fitting! 

Staying power is pretty standard but I love these so much that I don't mind having to reapply them!

I'll definitely be purchasing some more once these run out because I can see myself using these a lot! I'm a bit of a lip product junkie and I like trying new glosses and balms, but I rarely stick to them. This, however, has definitely made it to the top of my list!

I'm definitely going to try out some of their skincare products in the future so any recommendations would be great!
