When I am looking for a good lotion to buy, something that is important to me is that it is a healthy product. If I am going to be applying it directly to my skin, the less chemicals it has in it the better.
The company Tropical Traditions has come across my radar lately as they are all over the blogs with their natural products. I recently won a blog giveaway where I received a 8 oz. bottle of their Moisturizing Lotion. I choose the lotion "Arnica" because it said it was excellent at massaging tired muscles, and I often get asked for back massages from my boyfriend so I thought this would be great for him.
The first thing I would like to say is that the company has excellent communication and customer service. After I informed the Blog Giveaway Host which lotion I would like to receive, I soon after received a email congratulating me for winning the giveaway, and I received an order confirmation. A day or two after that I received an email saying my lotion was on it's way. I really appreciated this communication from the company as when I order a product, I want to know about when I am going to receive it and what is going on with it, and to me this just seemed like they really do care about their customers.
I received my lotion very quickly and it was packaged very well so the product wouldn't get damaged. The first thing I did when I opened my lotion was smell it. It has a minty smell to it. It smelled nice and wasn't too over powering.
I applied it to my hands and it was very moisturizing, and my hands felt very soft afterwards. The lotion is a little on the greasy side but I kind of expected that as it does contain Virgin Coconut Oil. However, about a few minutes after I applied it, the lotion was all absorbed in and the greasiness was all gone. I also used it to give my boyfriend a massage and he said his back felt great afterwards...so yay!
The one thing I love most about this lotion is that it's really natural. It contains no alcohols, no petroleum products or no artificial fragrances. The ingredients list contained about 13 ingredients and all of them were things that were natural and things I've heard of before. This is great because my son has eczema so I am always careful of the products I put on him. This is a lotion that I definitely would feel comfortable using on him.
I choose the "Arnica" lotion but they also offer other varieties as well:
- Baby Silk
Along with lotion, Tropical Traditions also has a great selection of other natural products including All purpose cleaners, teeth cleaners, laundry detergent, pet shampoo and many more. After trying this lotion it makes me very interested in trying their other products.
I would definitely recommend this lotion if you are looking for an all-natural lotion that is super moisturizing.
I received this product for free as a winner on a blog giveaway. All opinions are my own. Have an amazing, awesome day!!!
