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.

I can't even imagine how much skin damage happened on this day...

I can’t even imagine how much skin damage happened on this day…

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).                                                                                        PR sampleHawaiian Tropic

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen

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.

Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch After Sun Moisturizer

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

Planning a summer escape? Don’t forget the Hawaiian Tropic.

I spend my entire year trying to recapture the smell of summertime…and nothing smells like summer like Hawaiian Tropic does. Who else remembers this?

I wore my hair just like that, I used to be that thin, and I used Hawaiian Tropic Deep Tanning Oil with no SPF so I could get as tan as physically possible.

Plan your summer escape with Hawaiian Tropic!

Well, times have changed and we no longer look for suntan lotion with NO SPFs, just that fabulous coconutty scent. Hawaiian Tropic has so many options now that there is definitely something for everything. They sent me some sunscreen products to test and these are my personal favorites.

Hawaiian Tropic Island Sport Lotion Sunscreen

Hawaiian Tropic Island Sport Lotion Sunscreen

Hawaiian Tropic ® Island Sport® Lotion Sunscreen is perfect for those who prefer suntan lotions. This is oil-free and non-greasy. It sinks in immediately and is sweat-resistant. In fact, it stays on through sweat and water and fiercely competitive volley ball games with your siblings for up to 80 minutes. Plus, it has UVA and UVB protection. Bring it on!!

Hawaiian Tropic® Island Sport® Clear Spray Sunscreen

Hawaiian Tropic® Island Sport® Clear Spray Sunscreen

Hawaiian Tropic® Island Sport® Clear Spray Sunscreen is the same formula but in a spray bottle. I love this spray – it has a very light mist and leaves skin feeling smooth, not all wet. Like the lotion, it has UVA and UVB protection and up to 80 minutes of water-resistant protection. It’s much easier to get this on the little ones too…you can chase them while spraying. So much easier to accomplish than with the lotion!

Hawaiian Tropic® Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance Clear Spray Sunscreen

Hawaiian Tropic® Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance Clear Spray Sunscreen

Hawaiian Tropic® Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance Clear Spray Sunscreen is a little fancier, a little more girly. This has a clear spray and a blend of guava, papaya and plumeria extracts. One spray of this sunscreen and skin is not only protected from the sun, it’s also super soft with a light sheen.

Hawaiian Tropic® Touch of Color Tinted Spray Lotion Sunscreen

Hawaiian Tropic® Touch of Color Tinted Spray Lotion Sunscreen

Hawaiian Tropic® Touch of Color Tinted Spray Lotion Sunscreen is, I have to admit, my favorite. I am sooo white now that I don’t actually bake myself in the sun anymore, and this not only protects and moisturizes my skin, it also give me an instant touch of color. This is a spray lotion and smells AMAZING!! Buttery coconut….all big umbrellas, cabana boys, and pina coladas. It’s exactly what I am looking for all year long!!

There is plenty of time left for great summer escapes. Just don’t forget your Hawaiian Tropic to make sure every escape is perfect!  – Lisa
