Giveaway and Review: Tropical Traditions Organic Unscented Lotion (10/4) CLOSED

Friday, September 18, 2009 Posted by Dina N

Last month, I reviewed the organic moisturizing cream from Tropical Traditions. I loved it so much, I decided I wanted to try the moisturizing lotion!

If you missed my earlier post, here is what Tropical Traditions's skin care line is all about. All 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.

The Tropical Traditions unscented moisturizing lotion has a lighter consistency compared to the moisturizing cream. As with any other cosmetics, I first looked at the ingredients. My rule is, if there are things I can't pronounce, I try to avoid the product. Here is what's in the Tropical Traditions moisturizing lotion: purified water, organic virgin coconut oil, organic jojoba, emulsifying wax (plant-based, no soy), grapefruit seed extract, and organic virgin palm oil. The scented versions also contain organic essential oils. The lotion is hand made with no alcohols, no petroleum products, and no artificial fragrances.

Next, I tried the lotion on my face and hands. This product is unscented but if you know what virgin coconut oil smells like, you will recognize its faint aroma. The lotion is slightly beige / yellowish. It left my skin feeling soft and refreshed, with a faint smell of virgin coconut oil. Just like the moisturizing cream, the lotion can be used on your face, hands, and body. I would recommend getting both the lotion and the cream - use the lotion during the day, and use the moisturizing cream at night. My hands get very dry from washing them countless times during the day, and I find the lotion does a great job hydrating my skin without leaving a greasy feeling.

In short, I love this lotion and recommend that you try it! Right now, it is on sale at 30% off. If you decide to buy the lotion 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 lotion that I received. To enter, please take a look at the Tropical Traditions product line and tell me what interests you the most.
