Ok for a few days use
Great for protecting the eye area, however after a few days use, mine and my husband skin was so dry where we’d applied it. Review by Mellyh / (Posted on 08/07/2018)
I'ved tried the ABC collection and other products and I loved them all but just this Sun Balm with old dated April 2018 is bothering me.
I've bought the Sun care collection from a colleague but it's from her old stock. Each product has different Best Before dates, one of them the Sun Balm, dated April 2018. Can I still use it or should I throw it away ?

Hello! I'd love to try out this product but I would like to know if it is biodegradable and reef safe please. I am a diver and like to ensure my sunscreen isn't harmful to the ocean environment. Thankyou in advance :)

Response from Tropic HQ-
'Hi CJ,
At Tropic, our mission is to create naturally derived products that leave no lasting negative impact on our environment. Unlike chemical sunscreens which bleach coral reefs and disrupt marine biospheres* our sunscreens are all reef friendly. Our zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are inert minerals and break down in a way that is not harmful to the environment, becoming part of the ocean floor as sediment.

Our ingredients are in line with the US National Park Service and the Professional Association of Underwater Instructors recommendations for coral reef safety*. Their guidelines state that sunscreens with titanium oxide or zinc oxide, which are natural mineral ingredients, have not been found harmful to corals.**

Zinc Thick
IS this similar to the Zinc surfers wear across their cheeks giving total coverage?

Response from Tropic HQ
'Yes it is similar, perfect for all those areas that tend to get burnt such as cheeks and noses. Great for skiing too.

Star rating?
Hello Tropic, can this be worn under make up? Also is there a UVA star rating for this & the the tinted skin shade spf 50? Thanks!

Response from Tropic HQ-

'Hi Becca,
You could apply this under make up, however we would suggest if you are looking for something to wear along side make up then the Tinted Skin Shade would be the best option for you.

Our mission is to provide customers with all the information they need to make an informed decision on which level of sunscreen they need to purchase for their skin and environment.

The Boots UVA star rating can be misleading. The rating is determined by the ratio between the UVA and UVB levels of protection in the sunscreen. A sunscreen with a low SPF may receive the five-star “Ultra” rating, seemingly indicating a high UVA protection. However, a five-star rating in SPF 15 may offer significantly less UVA protection than a five-star rating in an SPF 50 sunscreen, despite the UVA star rating classing them with the same amount of UVA protection. This can misinform and confuse customers.

We also do not feature the Boots UVA star rating as this is a retailer initiative. However, our Skin Shade, Tinted Skin Shade and our Sun Balm all are approved by Cosmetics Europe (who are the European trade association for the cosmetics and personal care industry) meaning they have more than the recommended level of UVA and UVB protection. As a result, all our Sun Care SPF products feature the UVA symbol on our packaging, meaning that they are all broad spectrum sunscreens

Under makeup
Can you wear this under makeup without it making your makeup patchy?

Is this for applying all over the face/body instead of suncream? Suncream can often give me acne so I am wondering if this would be better?
Thank you!

'Hi Hana,
This product is designed for those who are out and about in the sun and need a travel size sunscreen product for a constant top up. It is great those who are prone to sunburn in easily forgotten areas, such as the ears, nose, forehead, cheeks and the tops of shoulders.
We have a 30 day money back guarantee which means you can order the product, try it for yourself and return it to us should you find it unsuitable for any reason at all.

Another fantastic product from Tropic
This is an amazing balm!! I was really sceptical at first but have just used it for two weeks in Goa where it was over 35 degrees most days. You don’t even feel like you are wearing it, it’s so light. I put a light layer on every morning about 10 mins before we went to the beach and would reapply if I had been in the sea. I didn’t get burnt or red once.
I also have very fussy skin so I hate using oily sun creams but this did not block my pores or make me breakout once. Another fantastic product from Tropic.
Only slight downside is that it has a best before date on it which is only 6months long. Review by Becca / (Posted on 28/02/2018)
Is it safe for eyes
Hi, Is this product safe to use on the delicate skin under your eyes?

Response from Tropic HQ-
Yes it is great for this, due to the consistency of the product you can apply it very accurately while ensuring you do not get any in the eyes too!

Will it melt?
Very interested in this product as a lip balm and would want to carry it at
round in my beach bag - obviously the product will get hot - may lip balms melt ... will this product be ok?

Response from Tropic Skincare:

Hello, thank you for your comment. Our Sun Balm has been created for use in the sun, and has even been tested in up to 45°C heat, so you can take it out with you in your beach bag without it melting. We do however advise that you keep your Sun Balm in the shade when using it on the beach, as several hours under direct sunlight could result in the product losing its balm-like consistency. We hope this helps! If you have any further questions about this product then please feel free to get in touch with us on 0208 684 1551 or by emailing info@tropicskincare.com.

Size of pot
Can you tell me what size this is please

Response from Tropic Skincare:

Hello, thank you for your comment. Our Sun Balm is a 20ml pot, so a great on-the-go product to pop in your handbag. We hope this helps! Love, Tropic x Review by Soniavincent / (Posted on 29/04/2017)
