Tropical Traditions Skin Exfoliator Review & Giveaway

960x854 logo.jpg
I absolutely love Tropical Traditions! I have featured this company many times on my blog, and love their coconut oil based products! I am doing another review with them, and this time I am trying the Unscented Skin Exfoliator! This exfoliator is really great! It is a mix of sea salt, organic Virgin coconut oil, organic jojoba and organic Virgin palm oil.  I have tried lots of exfoliators but I think this is my favorite!
The first time I used this exfoliator I immediately noticed a difference! The sea salt gets rid of the dead skin cells, and the oils help to moisturize.  It left me feeling a bit greasy for a little bit, but once my skin absorbed the oils my skin felt very soft. It works really great on all parts of the body, I especially like it for the feet! And since it's unscented even a guy could use it without feeling girly.  There are no alcohols, artificial fragrances or petroleum in the exfoliator.  This is something every one should definitely try to help with dry skin! Exfoliating is a really important part of your routine, and this stuff works great! 

The founders of Tropical Traditions are Brian and Marianita Shilhavy.  In 1998 Brian  and Marianita returned to the Philippines with their three children and renovated Marianita's old family farmhouse. By this time the coconut industry was severely depressed due to the negative U.S. campaigns against tropical oils in the 1980s and 1990s. Coconut farmers could no longer support their families on the income generated from harvesting coconuts. This couple tried a method the older generation used to extract the oil by grating the fresh coconut, extracting the coconut milk, and then letting the coconut milk stand in a covered container for about 24 hours. After about 24 hours, the oil naturally separates from the water producing a crystal clear oil that retains the full scent and taste of coconuts.  This proved successful, and they began using this for their own families.  They still use traditional methods for their products today!

One of you will win your own Skin Exfoliator!!  Here is how to win!
