I received the Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen complimentary for testing and review purposes from Influenster. The photo above was the first time I intended to try out the lotion. My friends and I had a whole day at the beach planned. There is sits, on top of my towel, awaiting to be put to the test at a day at the shore. Unfortunately that beach day got cancelled :-(
A few weekends later I got to try it out while I was outside doing some yard work. First of all, this stuff smells GREAT. It is also very moisturizing. I am used to moisturizing my skin and THEN putting on sunscreen, but this product kills two birds with one stone. For those of us with darker complexions, we usually see a residue or film on our skin from sunscreens, not the case with this one. It went on smooth with no residue, just moisture and protection from the sun.
The lotion I sampled was SPF 30, but it also comes in 12 and 50. The product advertises 12 hours of UVA and UVB protection. You can find Hawaiian Tropics products at most major retailers. The 6oz bottle of this product runs about $9.
