So I decided that I wanted the beauty business to be as natural as it could and that I was able to give good quality skincare products to my clients and know what I was giving them the best possible, rather than just products that smelt nice! This all came from personal experience and what I had found out about various chemicals and agents that allow your products to last long, in terms of from manufacturer to shelf to you.
I kept getting lumps in my upper under arm and armpit for a couple of months, these were large lumps that really hurt, they were not a spot or ingrown hair they were just lumps. I thought I would keep my eye on them for a while but they just seemed to get worse, even to the point where I had to cover them with a plaster and once the lump had gone another one came in its place but I had a dark mark from where the original one had been. I had to do some serious research into this and potentially go to the doctors. Now I am really rubbish for looking after myself when it comes to ailments!!! like most single parents we always seem to focus on the kids activities, well being and health before we look at our own and hope there is a quick fix so that we can continue on with our ever growing to-do list!! I started looking at what is within our products and what could be causing my lumps, don’t get me wrong this brought up some scary things but I thought that maybe going all natural would be a good idea, especially for my skin. The trouble with underarms is they are not talked about too much and it is not something you want to share with your friends. I had looked at products on the market and to be honest they either smelt of nothing or they we just a bit non attractive, ie more hippy than hip, if you get me!
Thats what I came across Tropic Skincare, a friend introduced me to the products and could not rave about them more. I thought I would give their underarm deodorant a go and see if this would be my saviour. Now i normally choose a spray deodorant but this was a cream and I was a bit hesitant to try it and it wasnt the cheapest one that was out there. At this point I was willing to try anything, and gave it a go. within a few days I noticed that my skin felt amazing but also that my lumps had gone……completely gone!!! After months of being in pain and not knowing what to do with myself I actually found something that worked. Since that first time of using this product I have used my original deodorant spray twice and both times within a day of using it the lumps were back!!! Interesting hey!!!
SO what is this magic deodorant…… well it is Tropic Skincares Feel Fresh. It costs £10 but it lasts for about 4 months, it is made in the UK in Surrey and it is made no more than 2 weeks before you get it!! Now thats what I call Fantastic, it hasnt been sat in a warehouse for months before it gets to you.
So Who are the Feel Fresh For?
For those who want an effective antiperspirant and deodorant they can confidently rely on to fully protect them by keeping skin dry, feeling fresh and smelling beautiful throughout the day.
