best suncream I have used
I love this, I haven't got on with any other mineral suncream before, as others tend to be really hard to rub in. But this is great and I use it on my face everyday. It has not made me break out and has kept my skin un-burnt during the heatwave. I also use it on my tattoos. Review by trix / (Posted on 15/08/2018)
Great Product
Love this product, thank you Tropic. Bought SPF 30 last summer and my main priority was really good sun protection, without nasty chemicals. It has been great at protecting my skin, had several holidays to include the south of Italy 1 week ago, I burn very easily, but not even a bit pink with this product. My husband loves it too. Plan now to get the SPF 15 also. I really wish that there was a 100ml option though as I always take carry on luggage so I cannot just pop it in my liquids... Tropic any chance of an ‘airport security’ friendly 100ml size sunscreen??... x Review by Cara / (Posted on 16/06/2018)
Disappointed
I have used this product on holiday for 24 hours and come out in horrendous prickly heat despite the weather being a relatively low temperature. I also found the product left my skin white and was difficult to rub in. I had the same problem with the skin balm. It does smell great and I like the ethos of tropic (I use loads of the range) but this one is not for me.

Review by Amanda / (Posted on 30/05/2018)
Definitely a holiday must
We've just come back from Dubai recently with my three year old niece who has never been able to wear sun cream as she goes blotchy and very spotty. So i convinced my sister to try tropic sun cream and she was absolutely fine no problems what so ever. She was in and out the pool and didn't burn once. My husband isn't a massive tropic convert like me but he actually said he likes it and said instead of burning he actually had a nice tan for a change. I recommend using body love after as your skin does go a bit dry after a few days of using. I've even bought the empty bottles from boots so I can put some into a smaller bottle for hand luggage for weekends away I won't use any other sun cream again. Review by Nic Nic / (Posted on 11/11/2017)
Will be buying this product again!
I was a little wary buying this as I have bought loads of other natural sunscreens in the past and they have all left my skin with a white coating on it...
I decided to try this product in spf 15 and am so happy with it! It smells lovely and doesn't leave a white residue on my skin! I will definitely be buying this again!!! Review by Alfie / (Posted on 08/09/2017)
Wouldn't buy this product again.
I got this . I did however find it very drying on the skin after 2 days using. I continued to use day 3-4 but as more days went on the drier my skin got. I'm finding I have to use a god moisteriser on skin. Was this product tested to use for 14 days straight?



Hello,

Thanks for taking time to review this product.

Mineral sunscreens can feel a little drier than chemical derived ones. For drier skin's it's best to apply moisturiser before your Skin Shade. If you're unhappy with this product you can return it to use for a full refund. Contact our customer support team for more infomation. 0208 6841551.

Can this be used on the face ?
This isn't a review, but I just wanted to ask can you use this spf on your face? I've seen the tinted face spf but I'd prefer an spf without tint. I have acne prone skin, do you think this would break me out as I have tried a number of spf's in the past and they constantly broke me out. I would appreciate your reply. Thanks

Hello!
The best way to get speedy answers from our Customer Support team is to email info@tropicskincare.com. You can use this product on the face but we recommend our Tinted Skin Shade SPF50 as that is designed specifically for facial skin. Love, Tropic xx Review by Spf fanatic / (Posted on 26/06/2017)
UVA or UVB or both?
A question....does your skin shade mineral sun protection protect against uva and uvb? It's just that uva is circled as if to say that's the protection limit. I really want to try this but also want full protection. Thank you.

Hello!
The best way to get speedy answers to any questions you may have is to email our Customer Support team at info@tropicskincare.com. The UVA logo on our packaging shows that our sunscreen meets EU recommendations for the levels on UVA protection within a sunscreen. Amy @ Tropic Skincare xx Review by Catlady / (Posted on 26/06/2017)
? Suitable for babies
Hi is this product suitable for babies and what is the star rating for Uva protection please? Does it also have uvb protection?
My friend recommends this product as her little girl has eczema and I am considering buying some for my baby who is reacting to high street sun creams.

Hello,

The best way to answer any questions you have is to email our Customer Support team info@tropicskincare.com.

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. We recommend all babies are not exposed to direct sunlight, especially when the sun is strongest in the middle of the day.

Love Tropic xx Review by Nicola / (Posted on 20/06/2017)
Wasn't at all what I was hoping for
This product is really disappointing, especially after I felt so excited to find a product that finally met my needs on paper.
I bought the factor 30, and it has caused my skin to become really pimply and extremely dry on the areas it has been used on. Same effect on my husband's skin too. And whilst I'm glad this isn't a perfumed product, the smell is quite fusty once it's applied. I'd be disappointed even if it was cheaper, but at this price it's not good at all. Such a shame, my search continues.
Plus points: it does rub in very well, and does work in terms of not gettung burnt.

Hello,

Thanks for taking the time to review this product.

Following customer feedback we have improved our Skin Shade. We've added even more moisturising ingredients and we've added a beautiful coconut scent. Please contact our Customer Support Team info@tropicskincare.com or call 0208 684 1551 for further information.

Tinted?
I'm a little confused... is this product tinted?

Response from Tropic Skincare:

Hello Holly, thank you for your comment. This product was tinted previously, however as of mid-May we have made improvements to our Skin Shade range, which included removing the tint, so placing an order now will ensure that you receive a non-tinted Skin Shade product. The only product in this range that remains with the tint is our Tinted Skin Shade Facial Sun Protection, as it provides radiant coverage while protecting skin. We hope this helps Holly! If you have any further questions about this range please don't hesitate to get in touch with us on 0208 684 1551 or info@tropicskincare.com. Love, Tropic x Review by Holly / (Posted on 27/05/2017)
Tint reduction & UVA/UVB protection
I am looking to purchase the sun protection range but see it is tinted? Ur advisers say the tint will be reduced - has this been done? Also when using the natural ingredients how is the skin protected from uva/uvb - please advise??

Response from Tropic Skincare:

Hello Hazel, thank you for your comment. As of mid-May this product has had the tint removed, so placing an order now will ensure that you receive a Skin Shade product that is not tinted. Please note that the only product which remains tinted is our Tinted Skin Shade Facial Sun Protection, as it provides radiant coverage as well as protection. The ingredients within this product that provide the effective natural broad spectrum sun protection are both natural minerals; Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide. You will find that most high street brand sunscreens use a chemical called Oxybenzone, which has been linked to many health concerns, however all of our sunscreen products are free from Oxybenzone and other harsh chemicals. We hope this helps Hazel! If you have any further questions about this product or any from our range please do feel free to get in touch with us on 0208 684 1551 or by emailing info@tropicskincare.com. Love, Tropic x


Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are our active ingredients that provide broad spectrum protection from the Sun’s UV rays without parabens or hormone disrupting chemicals. Review by Hazel / (Posted on 21/05/2017)
Confused
I'm confused, the drop down box states 'colour' to presumably choose the shade, but instead the boxes have three different SPF's to choose from?

Hello, thank you for your comment. Our Skin Shade Mineral Sun Protection products come in three SPF factors, and the mention of 'colour' in the drop down menu is a system error that we will be rectifying shortly. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, and please do let us know if we can help at all with your purchase - you can chat further to a member of our team on 0208 684 1551 or email info@tropicskincare.com. Many thanks! Love, Tropic x Review by Teripooh / (Posted on 05/05/2017)
Stains terribly because they don't tell you it's tinted!
There is absolutely nothing in catalogues or online to say this product is tinted. Which deems it totally unusable for children and the staining is utterly horrendous! It transfers to light coloured towels, and all fabric it comes into contact with and even with stain treatment and a wash it is still there. I understand that you are now pulling the tint out and a white product will be available in late May but will you please adjust your description of the product online and inform all your reps that this product stains and that there is tint in it! Not what I expect from Tropic at ALL, keep true to your products and stay honest please!

Response from Tropic Skin Care:

Hello Islandmummy,

Thank you for your message. We are so sorry to hear that you have been disappointed with your Skin Shade purchase, and that you were not made aware of the tint in this product before purchase. We value all feedback and always use it to improve our products going forward. As you mentioned in your comment, we have now improved our formulation to remove the tint and therefore stop this product from staining. We will also look at how we can make this more clear to our customers in the meantime, and ensure that our Ambassadors inform their customers of this product's features before they purchase. Thank you again for your feedback, and if you would like to chat to us about your 30 day money back guarantee we would be happy to help, please do get in touch with us on 0208 684 1551 or email info@tropicskincare.com. Best wishes, Tropic. Review by Islandmummy / (Posted on 12/04/2017)
Great sun cream
Really lovely sun cream. Smells great and isn't sticky like normal sun cream of factor 50. Used on my children who usually react with eczema to sun cream and they didn't with this one. Only slight issue, is that if it comes into contact with white clothes, it stains.

Response from Tropic Skin Care:

Hello, thank you for your message. We are so glad to hear that you love using your Skin Shade Mineral Sun Protection! We always take feedback such as this on board when improving our products, and we are happy to say that we have now improved this formulation further so that the tint is reduced and will not stain clothes. We hope this helps, and if you'd like to chat to us further please do not hesitate to get in touch on 0208 684 1551 or email info@tropicskincare.com.
