Tropical Traditions Citrus-Mint Skin Exfoliator Review & Giveaway!

I am excited to work with Tropical Traditions again! Tropical Traditions does an excellent job of providing a host of well-rounded products. They carry food products, like their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil, household cleaning products and even a variety of skin care items. I appreciate that Tropical Traditions not only provides quality and organic food items, but that they carry a line of personal care products that are made with the same high quality ingredients. This time, I had the opportunity to review their Citrus-Mint Skin Exfoliator!   

Tropical Traditions makes all of their Skin Exfoliators with 100% natural ingredients. They put in the best ingredients and leave out the icky chemicals (you won't find any alcohols, artificial fragrances, or petroleum products in there!). Tropical Traditions uses their Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and Virgin Palm Oil (which contains a powerful form of Vitamin E and it is also rich in natural carotene) to help moisturize and nourish your skin


Tropical Traditions offers two scented versions of their Skin Exfoliators (Lavender and Citrus-Mint) and an unscented versions (for those who are sensitive to essential oils). I am a huge citrus fan and I just love the Citrus-Mint scent that Tropical traditions has created! When I first opened it, I was greeted by a happy, sunshine-y orange color! Perfect for helping you to wake up in the morning! I noticed that the exfoliator definitely had a coconut scent to it at first, then I started picking up the orange and the minty-ness! I was also really impressed with the (short) ingredient list! That is definitely something I like to see!
Citrus-Mint Skin Exfoliator Ingredients: 
sea salt, organic macadamia nut oil, organic jojoba, organic virgin coconut oil, organic virgin palm oil, and organic essential oils of orange, spearmint, lemon and peppermint.

I tested the Citrus-Mint Skin Exfoliator out on my hands first. I get really dry skin on my hands during the colder months. Since they are already starting to look the worse for wear, I thought this would be the perfect time to start exfoliating and moisturizing them! when I put it on my hands, it was like the oil just got sucked into my skin! The sea salt is definitely a little abrasive, so I just used small, gentle circular motions and rubbed it in for about a minute. Then, as I rinsed away the sea salt, the oils left behind silky-smooth, revitalized skin! I just kept rubbing my hands together to feel the softness! I really liked that the moisturized, lotion feeling didn't go away within 5 minutes either. Sometimes, I feel like I put lotion on and need to continually reapply because I can't tell a difference on my hands. I just loved how soft my hands felt after only exfoliating for a minute! It was like a nice little hand spa treatment. :)


After using the Exfoliator
Overall, I am so happy with The Citrus-Mint Skin Exfoliator! It is perfect to use to buff away dry skin on hands, feet or other rough patches. I love the minimal and natural ingredients that Tropical Traditions uses and the good-for-you nutrients that are packed in this exfoliator. I am so glad that I have the cheery scent of Citrus-Mint to help banish my dry skin on my hands and feet!
