Looking For The Shade I Sought

For the majority it's not the right time of year to be talking sun protection (unless you're off on a jolly). I like to use my factor 15 on a daily basis though, especially since I gained a few extra moles last year. The sun has been peaking out a bit more though recently, and this has put me in such a good mood.
I'm currently using the Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration sun lotion SPF15*. It's lovely and light weight, it applied really smoothly and sinks in immediatly. It has none of that usual stickiness you get with other sun protection, which is always a plus.
Hawaiian Tropic has such a lovely scent to it. It took my a while to realise what it smelt like; My favourite Herbal Essences shampoo.
The product claims to be moisturising, but it doesn't seem to be to me. Maybe it's because my skin is so dry from the cold weather that only a heavy duty moisturiser is making any difference. The After Sun (which I haven't used as much) does seem to be moisturising though.
Will I be purchasing this product when it runs out? Probably not, the smell is lovely compared to what I usually use though. At £15 (from Boots) it's not exactly cheap, but what sun protection is? I usually go for the Boots Soltan and that's £10. I'd be more likely to buy Hawaiian Tropic if I was to go on holiday, and I wanted to treat myself a little more.
Are you a daily SPF-er or do you just use it during the warmer months? Have you ever tried Hawaiian Tropic?
I was sent this product for review by BzzAgent.


  1. During summer I always forget to apply sunscreen! I really should start doing it once the weather starts getting warmer :)

  2. Found your blog recently and I’d like to say that I’m in love with it!
    Interesting posts and beautiful photos!
