The new Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Face Lotion SPF 30, 1.7 Ounce was the very first sample I received just three days ago! To be honest, I wasn’t really expecting much, I assumed that most brands would send you samples that come in tiny foil packets that look like this:
You could tell how pleasantly surprised I was when Crowdtap and Hawaiian Tropic sent me a box with a full size sample, like that:
Before I go into my review, I need to say that this product is extremely relevant to me. I go through bottles and bottles of sunscreen because I use them every single day. I preach about the importance of sunscreen use to friends and family too. To me, the three main reasons why I use sunscreens are:
- It prevents premature ageing of skin, i.e. wrinkles.
- It helps prevent the development of skin cancer.
- It prevents freckles and early age spots.
I have used many brands of sunscreens. Currently, I only have these with me. I have also tried a few brands which I didn’t like and had to give them away.
Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Face Lotion SPF 30, 1.7 Ounce comes in a pump bottle and it is small enough to travel with. My first impressions were that I love the packaging and the keywords (“weightless”, “feels as if it’s barely on”, “won’t clog pores”) are exactly things I look for in a sunscreen for daily use. SPF 30 is also just right for daily use too, I wouldn’t use a sunscreen under SPF 30.
I have tried Hawaiian Tropic sunscreen for my usual all-day use under my foundation and on its own when I went for a run. Here is what I think –
After three days of use, I absolutely love it! It smells amazing – like shea butter or coconut milk, and it gives me the summery feels. The lotion is cream-colored and the texture felt really silky. It did feel a little oily at first, but it absorbed really well into my skin and left a matte finishing after a while. I even felt like it evened my skintone out.
As advertised, it felt weightless – I hardly knew it was there (other than the lovely scent). My skin is sometimes prone to breakouts, but I would say this sunscreen doesn’t irritate my skin. My face is still clear after three days of use.
On the product, it says that the sunscreen is a “luxurious, oil free and hypoallergenic formula” that “has an ultra-lightweight texture that feels lighter and smooth on skin leaving a weightless matte finish so your skin can breath”.
I would totally agree with that statement. I can absolutely see myself purchasing this product in the future and would definitely recommend it to others! 🙂
