Now that summer is upon us and the sun is shining hot do you apply sunscreen when you go outside? I’m a sunscreen fanatic. I apply and reapply often, to the point where my friends would often make fun of me for reapplying so often. However, I rarely burn, which is a win in my books.
Today I’m sharing with you a sunscreen option from Hawaiian Tropic: their Silk Hydration Weightless Sunscreen Lotion ($11.99 CAD). And to take care of your skin after you’ve been in the sun there is their Ultra Radiance After Sun Moisturizer ($10.99 CAD).
The Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Weightless Sunscreen is available in SPF 15, 30 and 50, and today I’m sharing with you the SPF 30 lotion.
The features and benefits of this sunscreen are:
- Broad-spectrum UVA & UVB protection;
- Contains vitamins C & E;
- Tropical fragrance;
- Water-resistant up to 80 minutes;
- Recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation for daily use.
I love this sunscreen and since it also moisturizes I use it as my daily moisturizer on my body parts that will be exposed to the sun (arms, neck, décolletage, shoulders, legs, feet). (Update: I now use this all over like if it was a regular moisturizer.) I find that it hydrates as well as a body lotion does. It says that it’s weightless, but I find it feels like a body butter – a bit heavy and slightly greasy, but not for long and leaves your skin nice and soft once it’s fully absorbed. I don’t feel like I need to re-moisturize after 12 hours either, for me it lasts until I wash myself again the next day (like most body lotion or body butter). I love the tropical scent that it has; it has that typical sunscreen scent in a light and fresh way and it just makes me think of summer and warm weather.
The Hawaiian Tropic Ultra Radiance After Sun Moisturizer contains light reflecting mica minerals that add a delicate shimmer to the skin. The shimmer is very minimal and just adds a healthy glow to your skin. I like to add a thin layer to my exposed body parts, on top of the sunscreen, to add a little glow to my skin. And the Island Mango scent is amazing! I can smell the mango, and there’s something exotic about the scent that makes me think of beautiful beaches in a tropical paradise.
You can see the hydrating ribbons in the sunscreen and the shimmer in the after sun moisturizer.
These are two great products to take care of your skin in and out of the sun and they have both become regular products in my daily body care arsenal.
What sunscreen do you use? Do you reapply often like I do?
