Giveaway and Review: Tropical Traditions Organic Moisturizing Cream (9/13) CLOSED

Saturday, August 29, 2009 Posted by Dina N

A few weeks ago, I introduced to you Tropical Traditions' Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil. I love using this coconut oil for cooking. Before I discovered Tropical Traditions, I had no idea that coconut oil had many other uses - including cosmetics. For years, Filipinos have been using coconut oil as the main ingredient in their skin care products - and they are well-known for their soft skin and youthful appearance, despite living in a climate where sun is plentiful all year.

Tropical Traditions offer a wide variety of skin care products:
  • Moisturizing Creams
  • Moisturizing Lotions
  • Massage Oils
  • Lip Moisturizers
  • Skin Exfoliators
  • Insect Repellent
  • Deodorant Roll-on
  • Teeth Cleaners
  • Organic Cotton
  • Liquid Soaps
  • Bar Soaps (scented)
  • Bar Soap (unscented)
  • Shampoo Bar
All Tropical Traditions skin care products are made with organic coconut oil and virgin palm oil. The palm oil contains high concentrations of a powerful form of Vitamin E called "tocotrienols" which is 40-60 times more potent than alpha-tocopherol, the most common form of Vitamin E found in most skin care products. It is also rich in natural carotenes. The palm stearic is also a natural component of the palm oil. The products do not contain parabens or artificial chemicals. Tropical Traditions use a special emulsifying wax that combines the water and oils together in a proprietary blend and is not soy based.

I had the opportunity to try Tropical Traditions' unscented organic moisturizing cream. I have dry sensitive skin and always look for quality cosmetics to try out. The first thing I always look at when buying cosmetics is the label. I care about what I put on my skin! Just as with food, I try to avoid products that contain too many ingredients with names I cannot pronounce. Here is what's in this moisturizer: purified water, organic virgin coconut oil, plant based emulsifying wax, palm stearic, grapefruit seed extract, organic beeswax, and organic virgin palm oil. In addition, scented varieties contain organic essential oils. Equally important, here is what's NOT in this moisturizer: no alcohols, no artificial fragrances, no petroleum. No mystery names here!

The moisturizer was thick and creamy. It's highly concentrated and can be used on the face, hands, and body. It takes a little longer to absorb into the skin because it does not contain any alcohols. First, I applied it on my face and hands as a night cream. It did not leave an oily residue and made my skin feeling soft an nourished. I was very impressed by how good my skin looked and felt in the morning, too. It seemed as if I'd had a couple more hours of sleep! For a chronically sleep-deprived parent, this is a big accomplishment. The skin on my hands felt equally pampered.

Besides using it as a night cream, I used Tropical Traditions' moisturizer as a day cream, a dry-patches cream, hand cream - you name it! The 4 oz. container can last awhile, since I only need a little to get the nourishment my skin needs.

I know you'll want to try this cream! I must confess, now that I've sampled the moisturizer, all Tropical Traditions skin care products are on my wish list. If you decide to buy the cream or anything else from Tropical Traditions, as a first-time customer you can get a FREE Virgin Coconut Oil book with purchase. Find out all about coconut oil and its benefits! Just use code 5251001 in the Referred by a Friend section and the book will be added to your order at no charge.

Now you have the opportunity to win the same unscented organic moisturizing cream that I received. To enter, please take a look at the Tropical Traditions skin care line and tell me what product - or products! - interests you the most.

    I received a sample of the coconut oil and have used it in a couple of recipes already. Now I'm ready to try out their line of skin care products as well. I'd love to try this lotion and also their organic deodorants as I tend to be allergic to most of the perfume infused deodorants.
