I'm always preaching to my family and friends the benefits of wearing sunscreen and how important it is for our skin, especially during the hot summer months. Sunscreen has been proven to decrease the development of skin cancer, it helps to prevent facial brown spots and skin discolouration and slows down the development of wrinkled, aging skin. I used to be really lazy when it comes to applying sunscreen regularly when I was younger, mainly because I didn't like the sticky feeling on my skin. It took me a while to find the perfect products for my skin but I found them and honestly, Hawaiian Tropic make the best sunscreens I have ever used! Every single product I've tried from this brand has left my skin feeling super moisturized, soft and most importantly, protected! They sink into the skin really quickly and are the most delicious smelling sun lotions ever!
Hawaiian Tropic Sun Lotion SPF30 (8€) - First of all, this sun lotion smells absolutely incredible like mango and coconut! Protects, softens and leaves my skin super glowing without feeling sticky. It's got a very conditioning formula but it's oil-free and non-greasy! Contains Vitamins C and E and is water-resistant for up to 80 minutes. I always bring this with me when I go on holiday (usually SPF 50) and I never got sunburned when applying this. Make sure that you apply a generous amount and let it soak in between 15 to 20 minutes before going out under the intense heat of the sun.
Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration After Sun Lotion (8€) - This is probably my favourite product, it smells like papaya and coconut (literally like paradise) It's gentle and extremely hydrating. I don't always use this as an after sun lotion, it works fantastic as a regular moisturizer as well. Cures any dry patches on my arms and legs leaving my skin very dewy and soft. Honestly what's not to love?
Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Face SPF30 (5€) - You can probably relate to this, how hard is it to find a good face SPF that doesn't break the skin out while still being affordable? This is the answers ladies and gentlemen, at least for me! It never ever broke me out, again, smells incredible like mango and coconut and protects my skin nicely. I use this daily, no matter what I'm doing. Contains hydrating ribbons infused with natural silk protein and glycerin to keep your skin constantly moisturized in the sun for 12 hours. How amazing does that sound?
Hawaiian Tropic Spray Oil SPF15 (8€) - This tanning oil was the first product I've used from this brand and I absolutely love it. Simply the best for a glowing and deep tan. It gives just enough protection while allowing me to tan, it's water resistant and moisturizes the skin leaving it so soft and smooth. I never thought this oil would give me a tan faster but it does! The skin becomes tan as a reaction to exposure to the sun's UV rays. As the skin warms up and absorbs these UV rays, your body releases additional melatonin, which darkens the color of your skin. Tanning oil basically causes the skin to heat up faster than it usually would! I always use a sun lotion underneath though, SPF15 just isn't enough for me.
