I’m gonna soak up the sun……(safely) with Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration!

Oh summer is here!  The patio chairs are outside and people are indulging in fruity after work cocktails and tapas/Hors d’oeuvres. Weekends are for the cottage and straight up lounging!

There’s nothing like being outside in the summer…..but if you’re a fair skinned gal like me, it’s all about the right protection.  Since the Canadian Dermatology Association recommends applying sunscreen every 2 hours, why not use a product that you actually WANT to apply and has added benefits?

Hawaiian tropic is unveiling several *new* products this summer!

Let’s take a look at the products:

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration sunscreen is the first and only sunscreen with hydrating ribbons for continuous moisture! It is infused with silk protein and shea butter.  The sunscreen is waterproof, light and non greasy and smells delicious! Silk Hydration is available in SPF 10, 30, & 50 and offers UVA AND UVB sun protection!

SPF 10 suggested retail $9.99 CAD

SPF 30&50 suggested retail $10.99 CAD

Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer Effect Sunscreen SPF 30 with mica minerals enhances your skin tone while providing broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection!

Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch SPF 85 Sunscreen is a photostable lotion that provides UVA and UVB protection.  It offers a lightweight feel, is waterproof AND oil free!

I knew that I liked using these products already so I ventured out into my network to find some ‘testers.’  Here are their thoughts on Hawaiian Tropic Sunscreen products.

The beauty: Liz

The product:  Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer Effect SPF 30 over the holiday weekend at the cottage!

Her Thoughts:

“Hawaiian Tropics Shimmer Effect sunscreen is great! It gives me that shiny beachy look that makes me feel like I am glowing!  The only downside is that the sparkles get everywhere!”

*I have to agree about the shimmer/sparkles-but since I am in love with shimmer, I don’t consider it a downside.  However, my other half seems to be annoyed that the shimmer is on his recently stained wooden patio chairs.  Personally, I think it enhances the chairs 😉

 

The Guinea Pig:  Brandon

The product:  Hawaiian Tropic SPF 85 Sunscreen Lotion and sunning on the condo balcony!

His Thoughts:

“This product is great because it’s light-not thick or sticky.  I like that it’s oil free and doesn’t have that sunscreen smell.”

 

The fairest:  Me!

The product: Hawaiian Tropic SPF 30 Silk Hydration- daily user because I have to function in the city!

My Thoughts:

“Since the first application of this, I have been using it as a lotion.  I apply it after my shower in the morning and take it with me to reapply-especially if I plan on being outside at all during the day.  The texture is great-it’s not that typical sticky, thick sunscreen.  This applies like a lotion and smells like the beach!  This product has made its way into my daily rotation!”

 

Applying sunscreen isn’t a chore-it’s a necessity!  Why not use a product that applies like a lotion and offers protection against UVA/UVB? Take care of your skin-it’s the largest organ you have!

What’s your sunscreen routine?
