In my last post I said: I picked the Tropical Traditions Citrus Moisturizing Cream to giveaway & review because my husband loves citrus scents & has bad dry skin on his legs & feet & is not overly big on my DIY ideas, so I am hoping he will love this Citrus Moisturizing Cream (giveaway has ended). So I will update you.
First things first, Tropical Traditions review on shipping:
Tropical Traditions as always has awesome customer support & I can never complain even when an issue arises because they are fast to respond, fix it & update you & really what else can be asked for since we live in the real world & accidents happen. So with this order there was a delay in shipping & that’s why my review is running so far behind the giveaway
ending, but when I realized the cream had not been mailed I contacted customer support & they responded with an apology & stating it would be mailed right away, & it was. So problem solved with friendly responses from real humans. I have had, many, many items sent to me & to others from Tropical Traditions & this is only the second issue ever & both times they responded fast & fixed the issue & were very friendly, so kudos to Tropical Traditions on such great employees.
OK now the review of the Citrus Moisturizing cream:
When a package arrives from Tropical Traditions with a product for me to review I am always eager to open it because the products I review I have not tried yet. So my Fed ex guys brings my Tropical Traditions package to my waiting hands, Yes I have a Fed ex guy, don’t you? But I think mine probably thinks I am a bit off my rocker, though he does like talking about my free range chickens, anyhow….
I opened the package & immediately opened the cream, I love the array of citrus scents it has without being overpowering, if it was me I would probably add a hint of eucalyptus too but lets remember this cream is for my husband and gasp as much as I love eucalyptus he can not stand it, but he does love citrus so wha la it is perfect for him.
I of course rubbed some between my fingers & loved how it felt, It is a nice lightweight cream that did not leave a lasting greasy feeling behind. But I then closed it up not trusting myself to not start using it to create DIY ideas before it ever touched my husbands feet. It even helped his smelly feet issue, So he says he gives this cream an A+
The Dry Skin issue:
So that night I rubbed the Citrus Moisturizing cream on my husbands legs & feet, he of course loved the scent asking me where I got it, how much it costs etc, he was thrilled that something from my blogging was finally for him 🙂
So I rubbed his legs & feet down every evening for a week now & I must say his skin has made awesome improvement for a guy that works in the hottest of hot factories (A foundry). He loves the cream & wants me to continue.
My DIY ideas for this cream:
Face mask: I mixed the cream & Bentonite clay powder together for a great moisturizing face mask.
Makeup remover: This cream is great as a make up remover alone but it worked even better mixed with just a bit of baking soda.
Exfoliating face wash: Citrus Moisturizing cream with Borax in it, this combo was amazing & I highly recommend it.
Chest/Vapor rub: I mixed the citrus cream with Eucalyptus essential oil (yes I did) & rubbed it on my chest, it worked great, This was also great for a sunburn & bug bites.
Shaving cream: Again this cream made a great shaving cream alone, but I also mixed it with just a bit baking soda & it made a great exfoliating shaving cream.
Wound Cream: For several cuts my husband got I mixed a pinch of Ground Turmeric in with the citrus moisturizing cream, this is great for cuts & wounds & great for healing.
