Hawaiian Tropic Sunscreen Review

*Samples were provided in exchange for an honest review. No compensation was received for this post.*

Whether you live on the East Coast, West Coast or somewhere in between, Summer temperatures have been creeping in to remind us that Memorial Day is just around the corner. The unofficial kick off to Summer signals the start of outdoor living – pools, beaches, family barbecues, festivals and warm-weather vacations are now within our reach.

I don’t need to lecture anyone on the importance of protecting your skin from the sun but I do want to share products that will be a part of my beach bag this Summer.

Hawaiian Tropic recently launched Silk Hydration Weightless Face Lotion Sunscreen. This new breathable formula feels like I barely have anything on my face. With its broad spectrum SPF 30 and UVA & UVB protection, it’s an essential sunscreen to wear outside. It does leave a sheen on my face but the shine goes away after the sunscreen is fully absorbed in my skin.

Additional Hawaiian Tropic launches this year include:

  • Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Weightless C-Spray (SPF 15 & 30): The same Silk Hydration Weightless formula now in an easy application format that leaves skin feeling soft, moisturized and indulgent. I simply love this spray! It absorbs quickly and smells amazing.
  • Hawaiian Tropic Island Sport Clear Spray SPF 50 and Lotion SPF 50: Designed to stand up to outdoor activities while making your skin look and feel beautiful, the Island Sport line is now available in SPF 50 for stronger protection. Certain sun and water sport outings require a strong SPF. This non-greasy formula is perfect for breaking a sweat and smells divine, much like the Weightless line. I like that this line is available in lotion and clear spray for either application preference.
