Sometimes I long for the days when we had no idea what sort of damage the sun does the skin. When I was in my teens and twenties, I spent days and weeks in the sun with no SPF at all…in fact, I would slather myself in a deeply coconut scented no-SPF tanning oil, use reflective tinfoil, and be certain I was in the sun from 11 to 1 when I could catch the best tanning rays. I never, ever thought one time about skin cancer, wrinkles, or hyperpigmentation. I was blissfully unaware…oh geez I just found a photo of myself at age 31 with my son – taken in Florida at I am sure 12:30 in the afternoon.
However, once you know something it is impossible to ‘un’ know it, so I use SPF every day, even if I don’t think I am going outside. Lately all I want is my Hawaiian Tropic, not only because it is great at protecting skin from the sun, but because it brings me right back to those sunny, blissful days at the beach (or on a folding chair in my backyard pretending it’s the beach).

I make sure to apply broad spectrum SPF every day, and boy do I love the Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen ($7.99). It is indeed weightless, a light soft lotion that sinks in immediately.
- Feels indulgent on the skin – as if it’s barely on
- Safe and effective broad-spectrum UVA and UVB sunscreen
- Blended with exotic island botanicals
- Unmistakable Hawaiian Tropic® fragrance will delight your senses
- Premium airless pump
- Water-resistant for up to 80 minutes
It really does smell just like it did back in the day. When I have this on I can close my eyes and imagine I am at the beach right that second. Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen is just delightful.
So the Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch After Sun Moisturizer ($7.99) isn’t sun protection, but it is one terrific body lotion that gives skin a soft glow with a classic Hawaiian Tropic scent.
- Formulated with shea butter complex and mango fruit extract
- Unique skin brightening effect – special pigments that reflect light beautifully
- 8-ounce pump bottle
- A tropical treat for your senses
I love the beautiful radiance it gives skin…not overly sparkly, just a warm glow that makes skin look amazing. You really need to pick this up for summer!
Hawaiian Tropic products can be found in mass, grocery and drug retailers nationwide as well as online. Pick some up and they will bring you right back to those carefree summer days! – Lisa
