Sunday Sun Day Volume XXIX: Hawaiian Tropic Sunscreens


Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Hawaiian Tropic has been making sunscreen for generations, and I remember using their sunscreens when I was just a kid. Therefore, for me there is always a level of nostalgia associated with their products. However, their range has expanded considerably and the technological advances that they employ have certainly resulted in even better products than I remember using as a child. They have so many wonderful products to get you through the warm summer months from sunscreens to after-sun moisturizers. Here are a few that are in my current rotation:

1) Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Clear Spray Sunscreen Ultra Radiance SPF 15 ($9.99 for 6oz. from Drugstore.com, Amazon and Ulta): Hawaiian Tropic® Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance Clear Spray offers all the triple-enhancement of the sunscreen lotion, but in a quick and easy spray application. It not only protects, softens, and leaves skin glowing, its ultra-conditioning formula, with a hint of sheen, leaves your skin soft and luminous.

If you are a fan of sunscreen sprays, then Hawaiian Tropic has a great selection from which to choose. Their Sheer Touch Clear Spray Sunscreen Ultra Radiance applies evenly and easily, and it leaves skin soft and moisturized, but never greasy. It has a lovely tropical scent that lingers on the skin for a little while, and it leaves skin with a lovely luminous glow. If you are planning on playing in the sun, this formula is water-resistant for a little over an hour, and it comes in an SPF of 15 or 30. I would definitely opt for the higher SPF, if you plan to be outside for any length of time, and of course would reapply it frequently.

This light and breathable formula keeps up with your active outdoor lifestyle – you’ll love how it’s sweat-resistant during all your favorite sports. Big plus: it comes in a convenient spray that doesn’t require rubbing.

Hawaiian Tropic Island Sport Ultra Light High Performance Sunscreen SPF 30 Spray is also an effective and easy-to-use spray sunscreen that is water-resistant for a bit over an hour. The formula is very fast-absorbing and very lightweight on the skin leaving behind only a lovely light tropical scent that evokes tropical vacations. If you are planning on exercising outdoors the sweat-resistant formula makes this a great choice. If you plan on being outdoors for an extended period of time I would definitely choose the SPF 30 version, and reapply it frequently.
