Scrubbing Away My Worries with Tropical Traditions! 
A Review and Give-A-Way!!

Confession time dear readers!  I am a bath and body product addict.  I love it when my skin feels clean and hydrated.  When the great folks at Tropical Traditions approached me about choosing a product to both review and give away to my readers, I didn't have to think long before I spied the Citrus-Mint Skin Exfoliator.

100% pure and scented with organic essential oils this is a product I am rapidly getting very used to using.  Just a little bit goes a long way and my skin not only feels refreshed but smooth and silky after my shower.  Living in New York where the winters are harsh I can happily tell you that since using the Tropical Traditions Citrus Mint Skin Exfoliator, dry and itchy skin are now a thing of the past.

This is what the Tropical traditions website states about this line of products:

"Filipinos are well-known for their youthful appearance and soft skin, even though they live in a climate that exposes them to the sun’s rays year round. Coconut oil is their main dietary oil, and is also the main ingredient in their skin care products.
All of the Skin Exfoliators that Tropical Traditions offers are made with organic Virgin Coconut Oil and Virgin Palm Oil. No other products on the market are made with finer oils as their base. Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil is traditionally made from fresh organic coconuts, and independent laboratory tests show that it has a higher level of antioxidants than other coconut oils.
Virgin Palm Oil contains high concentrations of a powerful form of Vitamin E called “tocotrienols” which published research has shown is 40–60 times more potent than alpha-tocopherol (the most common form of Vitamin E found as an additive in most skin care products.) In addition to these powerful Vitamin E tocotrienols, Virgin Palm Oil is also rich in natural carotenes. It is one of the richest natural plant sources of carotenes with concentrations of 500–700 ppm. It is 15 times more retinol-equivalent than carrots and 300 times more than tomatoes, for example.

Other Ingredients

In addition to using only the best oils available for the skin, all other ingredients used in Tropical Traditions Skin Exfoliators are 100% natural. Our hand-made Exfoliators contain no alcohols, no artificial fragrances, and no petroleum products. Because we recognize that many have sensitivities to fragrances, we offer an unscented version. For the varieties that are scented, we only use high quality organic essential oils imported from France which are distilled with low temperature and low pressure over an extended period of time. Low temperature and lower pressure have proven to be the most effective method of obtaining all of the essential constituents from the plant, and provide our products with the very best quality fragrances available. For a complete description of all ingredients in each product, see the product descriptions below.
Exfoliating smoothes the skin, unclogs pores, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles."

The best part of of Tropical Traditions is their desire for people to have the chance to experience the value of their products first hand.  To wit, they are generously sponsoring a give-a-way of the very same product I tested and adore: The Tropical Traditions Citrus Mint Skin Exfoliator!
