Hawaiian Tropic 2017- Silk Hydration Weightless & Island Sport

It's time to start stocking up on sunscreen. The sun is shining (at least some of the time over here) and we're out and about more.

Hawaiian Tropic has two lines to keep you covered, Island Sport and Silk Hydration.

Silk Hydration is  a good one that's been around  but gets an upgrade to "weightless" this year. And it truly is. After I sprayed, I sprayed it on again as it's so barely there you think, "did I really just use any?"  If you hate sticky SPF and I think most of us do, this is a great pick. It's especially nice for work days and when you're going out and need protection that's strong but won't be tacky feeling , overly heavy or leave a white cast on skin . There's light moisture and the fragrance is light too. It has that delicious smell but it's subtle and fades away fast.

Island Sport is called Ultra Light , so not weightless but not super heavy either and  both spray and lotion are now available in SPF 50. The cream is medium thickness that sinks in pretty fast but needs some rubbing in and adds some moisture to skin.  The spray feels  a little tacky at first and has more presence on skin but dries and sets well    Both  are water/sweat resistant up to 80 minutes.

All of these are chemical based SPF using avobenzene, homosalate, oxybenzone and octocrylene depending on the formula.

Hawaiian Tropic® Island Sport Lotion or Spray Sunscreen SPF 15 and SPF 30 are - $8.99
 Hawaiian Tropic® Island Sport Lotion  or Spray Sunscreen SPF 50 - $9.99

Hawaiian Tropic® Silk Hydration Weightless C- Spray SPF 15 and SPF 30 are  - $9.99
