Tropic Skincare Pure Lagoon Blemish Prevention Serum

Tropic Skincare is a brand I absolutely love and if you like multipurpose balms, then the Tamanu Balm (review here) is an absolute must-have product.  Today is the turn of Pure Lagoon Blemish Prevention Serum, a product which is described as being new age and blemish-busting.

Pure Lagoon Blemish Prevention Serum is said to offer transformative results for spot-prone skin with a new approach to blemish-busting. It is incredibly rare that I have a breakout of spots, one might fester painfully under my skin just before my period arrives, constantly threatening to break the skin, but touch wood, I've been lucky enough not to be much of a spot sufferer.  I do however often suffer from redness to the skin which flares up if I am stressed and having combination/Oily skin can cause a whole host of other issues.

Lightweight in texture, Pure Lagoon is packed full of amazing ingredients and I am always fascinated in reading about what is included within a product before it goes anywhere near my skin.  Firstly we have Bioflavonoids and Prebiotics which helps your skin’s natural flora to ward off spot-causing bacteria and stops the spot-forming cycle. Then we have blue Spirulina and Malachite Crystal extract which not only give this serum its blue hue, but they are rich in copper and have powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Together they not only reduce redness of any existing blemishes but they also help to maintain a calmer and more clarified complexion. Hyaluronic Acid helps to deliver an intense burst of hydration and then added to that is Watermelon fruit extract, which not only gives this serum a light fragrance but also helps with moisture levels. Also included is Zinc PCA and it is said to help reduce sebum levels quickly after use and its production over time, plus when it is combined with Vitamin B3, it also helps pores to look refined for a smooth finish. Then finally we have Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA) and its job is to help spot-prone complexions to turn over a new leaf by preventing dead skin cells and sebum buildup with mild exfoliation.

Depending on your skin type will depend on how you get the best usage out of this product. The advice is that if you have oily skin then twice a day will give you the best benefits whereas combination skin needs to use it just once a day. To use, you simply deep 3-6 drops onto freshly cleansed skin and pat it with your fingers. What I like is how easy it is to use and just how divine the blue colour is and of course having my own initialled bottle is rather cool!

I was also delighted to see the inclusion of some Malachite crystals within my package because not only is it an ingredient within the serum, but it is also an extremely powerful metaphysical stone, Malachite is often called the “stone of transformation” and is used for deep energy cleaning, bringing healing and positive transformation to the wearer. Something I am taking an interest currently is Crystals and their healing power.

Pure Lagoon Blemish Prevention Serum is priced at £42 and is available from Tropic Skincare (here). All products are naturally derived and made fresh in the Tropic Surrey Beauty Kitchen, they are also Vegan and cruelty-free. Have you tried anything from Tropic Skincare?
