An Important Part of My Fourth of July Weekend: Sunscreen

July 4, 2016

This post was sponsored by Hawaiian Tropic as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.

While this Fourth of July weekend was a little different than weekends in the past where I just sat at the beach, I was still able to clock plenty of time outdoors! With all of our friends buying homes, it was nice to catch up outside with my husband’s best man and his wife outside of Philly, with a nice dinner on their backyard deck, and Sunday we hung outside at a barbecue in NJ, celebrating our friends’ new home, and another friends’ marriage. Monday I made sure to not only get some yardwork done, but also relaxed by reading a magazine by the pool.


With plenty of activities this weekend, I made sure to wear some of my favorite new summer dresses (and workout clothes for the yardwork!), but also some of my new favorite summer products – including sunscreen. I’ve learned that sunscreen is super important, no matter if you are casually hanging out outside or just ready for a day by the pool. I will admit that sometimes I hate lathering up and getting all sticky for just a few hours. But every time I skip it and indulge in a little Vitamin D, my skin certainly regrets it (just ask me about the time I mowed the lawn sans sunscreen and had awful tan lines).

Luckily, I was able to celebrate the 4th by trying two new products from Hawaiian Tropic, New Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Weightless Lotion Sunscreen SPF 30 and Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance After Sun Moisturizer, to make sun care so easy this 4th of July Weekend.

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Weightless Lotion Sunscreen SPF 30 features a unique, breathable formula with a light texture to offer protection, but it absorbs into your skin so quickly it feels like it is barely on. As I lathered up, I couldn’t help but take in the smell – it has that unmistakable Hawaiian Tropic fragrance. Even after getting out of the sun, my skin felt moisturized, as this sunscreen includes silk protein and shea butter to provide up 12 hours of moisturization.

Another product in my arsenal was the Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance After Sun Moisturizer. It’s advised to use this product after showering or whenever your skin feels dry. This moisturizer soothes, softens and leaves your skin glowing, thanks to special light reflecting pigments. The combination of shea butter and mango extract not only took me back to a trip to the islands, but left my skin feeling soft. 

Want to try these new products out for yourself? Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Weightless Lotion Sunscreen is available in broad spectrum UVA and UVB SPF 15 and 30, and is sold for $9.99 at grocery, mass retailers and drugstores nationwide, as well as online. You can also find the Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance After Sun Moisturizer at the same retailers for $7.99. You can also find more details about Hawaiian Tropic on Facebook
