Sunshine in a bottle!
Wow! It really is sunshine in a bottle! I used this for the first time last night after giving myself a much needed Tropic facial. I used 2 drops in 1 pump of Skin Revive. I must admit, I was sceptical about it. BUT I woke up to a lovely subtle glow that made me look healthy, and for the first time ever I was confident going out without foundation on! I'm a convert To Sun Drops! Review by Britt / (Posted on 27/09/2018)
Hi i was just wandering is this product non comodgenic? as in it wont clog pores

Response from Tropic HQ-
Our Sun Drops are perfect for those who would like to achieve a more even skin tone, brighten dull skin so that it looks naturally healthy and create a stunning subtle tan. Our naturally derived products are carefully designed and all the ingredients included in them are to benefit the skin. None of our products should clog the skin.

Impressive product!
Clarins used to make something like this, but it was quite watery and I found my sensitive skin reacted. Not so with this. I loved the thicker consistency. I used 4 drops mixed with my moisturiser, more than enough to cover face & neck. It gave me a lovely even glow which only needed a touch of blusher. Not quite dark enough for me on first application so I'll put some in my night cream. Really lovely product. I've recently tried a Lancome facial self tan gel, but this is sooo much better that I'll be ditching the other (irritated my skin anyway so expensive mistake!), this was a joy to use, thank you!

Fantastic product!
Love love love this product. I purchased this through a tropic ambassador after seeing the range at a party. I cleanse, tone, apply my eye revive and then mix 2 -3 drops in with my moisturiser and apply to my face. I have been doing this as part of my night time routine and the results are amazing. It hasn’t (so far) caused outbreaks in my skin and I have been using it for over a week now. It has just given my skin that healthy glow and I have been getting lots of compliments too! Can’t wait to try more of the tropic range! Review by Mandy / (Posted on 22/07/2018)
Great product
This is a fantastic product and leaves you with a natural looking tan. A couple of times I have used it I have noticed that I have had a few spots break out but still a really good product. I would say though that I Think you should do smaller bottles due to the expiry date, as a little does go along way and I feel like a lot is going to be wasted to the the short expiry date

Response from Tropic HQ-
'Hi Dawn,
Thank you for getting in touch with us and for your feedback. The shelf life of the Sun Drops should have been about between 10-12 months when you received it. Please call us on 0208 684 1551 with your order details to discuss.
Love Tropic x' Review by Dawn / (Posted on 15/07/2018)
I am waiting to order this once it comes back in stock from a local ambassador, one question i have is : do you still tan on your face through this product? As with fake tan it normally blocks out your skin colour and clogs the paws not allowing your face to gain a natural tan from sitting in the sun or the sun beds.

Response from Tropic HQ-
'Hi Ali,
Thank you so much for getting in touch. Fake tan is not a barrier to UV rays emitted by the sun and sunbeds so you will still be able to gain a natural tan through it. We would always suggest wearing sunscreen with a high SPF to protect your skin from sun damage.
Love Tropic x'

Wow! Amazing controllable results
I normally spend a fortune on fake tan, but thought I’ld try this after a very successful Tropic product party at a friend’s house. I was blown away by the results. I put 4 drops with my normal moisturiser and the results were fab - natural mid tan and no orange in site. I am now ditching my 100 a bottle face fake tan for this. Result!

First time User
I have recently purchased this product after reading so many good reviews and cannot wait to try it! I have one quick question though - are you able to carry out your normal skin care routine (cleanse, time, etc) whilst using the product. Or does it remove it?

Response from Tropic HQ-
'Thank you so much for getting in touch.You can absolutely use this along side your ABC routine. You would cleanse, tone and then moisturise adding the Sun drops to your moisturiser. Your tan will then develop over the next 10 hours to reveal a perfectly tailored shade.
Love Tropic' Review by SMF / (Posted on 23/05/2018)
excellent product
This is a fabulous tanning product and you can use as often or little as you like. I tend to use a little every day for a week then have a rest then use it again. Gives a very natural tan to your skin and will enhance any skin colour without looking fake. Everyone that has commented has assumed i have been sitting in the sun. Review by Chaness / (Posted on 09/05/2018)
Waiting to try this ! Can this be used with a might time facial oil or just moisturiser? Thanks

Response from Tropic HQ-
The Sun Drops needs to be mixed with a moisturiser, as an oil could affect the outcome of your tan.

Great tanner
Add this to normal moisturiser and great results. Just remember to wash in between fingers and don't apply too much in one go and the skins will look naturally sunkissed Beautiful Review by Tc / (Posted on 21/09/2017)
Love it! It gives a natural healthy glow.
I have skin that burns easily and I tend to keep out of the sun. This summer I have used Sun Drops and have been thrilled with the results. It is very easy to use and control the amount of colour you want to achieve. I use it at night to give it time to work. I also use it with Summer Skin. These are the best, most natural looking self tanning products I have tried.

Hi Gill, Thanks so much for this great feedback! We hope you continue to love these products as much as we do. Tropic x Review by Gill / (Posted on 07/09/2017)
Use of Sun Drops with eye creams
I use your facial moisturiser and an eye cream. How do you suggest I use the Sun Drops serum with the two types of creams?

Hi Sharon,

Apply your Eye Revive first, then mix a little Skin Revive with you preferred amount of Sum Drops in the palm of your hand. Then apply your Skin Revive as you would normally. Remember to wash your hands! Love Tropic x Review by Sharon H / (Posted on 06/09/2017)
The best facial tanning product on the market.
The best facial tanning drops on the market. The best bit? It doesn't have that horrendous smell other products have. This smells amazing when you're putting it on. I found that 2-3 drops is good guideline, but it's down more to preference. 2-3 drops is enough for a sun-kissed glow. Mixes well with moisturisers. Apply in the evening as it takes some time to come out in full effect. Review by Sam Thomas / (Posted on 07/08/2017)
Bottle too big for shelf-life
Only used at the end of a pamper party to try. I put 2 drops into moisturiser and the following day I had a light but pleasing glow.
I have v fair skin so would only use 2 drops. I would also only use it during the summer. Due to the shelf life of the products I wouldn't want such a big bottle. Any chance of a half size bottle? Review by Rachel / (Posted on 09/07/2017)
Checking suitablity of product
I love the product but I'm worried if it is suitable for my skin as I am prone to outbreaks. I have used it a few times and every time I have had a few spots pop up I'm not sure if this is coincidence is the product suitable for my skin type?

Really lovely product and skin looks so blowy and natural
I love this product, having had skin cancer I don't sunbathe but still like to look tanned and healthy and have always used a gradual tan on my face in the summer and this is by far the best I have used. At the moment I use 3 drops every other day which is more than enough and no doubt as the weather improves I will use more, maybe I will use every day. A beautiful product. Review by Ronnie / (Posted on 15/04/2017)
Just sitting on my bathroom self now.
I didn`t notice any difference. I couldn`t put more than three drops with amount of face cream I use as it makes it too watery to apply. I have several other products.

Response from Tropic Skin Care:

Hello Linda, thank you for your feedback on our Sun Drops. We are sorry to hear that you did not notice the difference in skin tone that you had hoped for! Due to the nature of our Sun Drops serum, adding it to your moisturiser means that your moisturiser will be diluted, and therefore a different consistency than you may be used to. You can add up to 6 drops to achieve a deeper glow, and we recommend applying your Sun Drops in the evening to allow the colour to develop for longer. If you’d like to chat to our team about our 30 day money back guarantee or about how best to use this product, you can give us a call on 0208 684 1551 or email info@tropicskincare.com, Love Tropic x Review by Linda / (Posted on 08/03/2017)
Try it for yourself. Like all the Tropic products I've tried you're bound to love them!
I just love this product! I use it every other evening. Roughly 4 drops with my moisturiser and the result is a lovely, natural glow. It's totally up to the individual to work out how many drops and how often to apply. You can build it up if you like or keep it more subtle...the beauty of the product!

What I won in a Friday Competition
At first I didn't know what to expect from sun drops, but after using it is must say that this product is totally amazing.
I feel that Sun Drops leaves my skin with a wonderful toned glow. I just could not believe that by adding a few drops of Sun Drops to my Day and Night cream l would get amazing results like I have had. Every time I use it my face and neck are left with such an awesome all over glow on my skin. The first time I used it was at work and so many people were stopping me to ask where I had been away on holiday to get such an amazing look to my skin. They just could not believe me when I said it was from Tropic Skincare and like me they were totally blown away by the results. Review by Emma / (Posted on 07/09/2016)
Sun drops tanning facial serum
I love this product. Over past few weeks the tan has developed slowly but looks v natural. I increased the number of drops to see a better result as at first I didn't notice much difference. But soon found my equilibrium. Does leave residue on hand. For me this was cured by a soapy hand wash straight after application. On you could apply with latex gloves or equivalent. Review by Catherine / (Posted on 29/07/2016)
Not good
Have been using this for a week and all it has tanned is my hands even though I have washed them after using the sun drops - hasn't given my face a sub kissed glow at all. Love my other tropic products though!

Response from Tropic Skin Care:

Hello Natalie,

Thank you for your comment. We are sorry you have not found this product to be effective on your skin so far. If you have not seen a change in your skin tone since you started using your Sun Drops then we would suggest adding a few more drops of the serum and less of the moisturiser, to produce a deeper tan. If you have noticed leftover colour on your hands then washing them immediately after use with soap helps, but if this doesn’t work then try applying a small amount of moisturiser to your hands first, to prevent your Sun Drops soaking into the skin. If you are still unhappy with your product then do remember that we offer a 30 day money back guarantee, so if you'd like to chat to one of our team about your purchase you can do so by calling 0208 684 1551 or emailing info@tropicskincare.com and we'd be happy to help. We hope this is useful Natalie! Love, Tropic x

Sun drops
Lovely smell but the 2-3 drop guideline looks fine at first but the product develops into more prominent tan it seems after a few hours so if fair skinned maybe use one drop. Review by Gemma tyrrwll / (Posted on 07/06/2016)
