Well, it’s finally happened… summer has decided to join us. Yesterday was the first official day of summer and the weather has been cooperating. While I absolutely love summer, there is something I hate about summer: with each passing day, it’s one day closer to winter. What an awful way to think about your favourite season isn’t it? That, my friends, is how much I truly dislike winter. So much so that it hinders me from enjoying my favourite time of year. I’ve spoken with other “anti-winter” people and they have told me they feel the same way too.
I think I love summer because it makes me feel better in so many ways. Perhaps it’s the vitamin D or just the golden glow the sun leaves on my skin (most people “look” better with a bit of colour), I certainly feel like I look better with a bit of a tan. I do not however enjoy a sun burn. I am diligent with the kids ensuring their sunscreen is on every inch of exposed skin. With myself however, I’m not as dedicated – oops.
I recently had the chance to try out the new Hawaiian Tropics Silk Hydration SPF 30. This is probably the best sunscreen I have used on myself. The cream is silky smooth, smells marvelous and kept me from burning. There must be two different types of cream in this formula because when you squeeze it out, you can see two different swirly tones – it’s actually very pretty. My skin did not feel sticky and felt ready to hit the sun. My skin stayed hydrated and felt great.
I also received the Hawaiian Tropics Silk Hydration After Sun Moisturizer. This cream also comes in a swirly pattern and smells like coconut/papaya (can you say yummy?), it’s a light fresh scent that reminds me of my happy place, on the beach with a mojito/piña colada in my hand (heck, I’d even be happy with a glass of apple juice). The after sun has aloe which is great for soothing burns. Thankfully because I have been using the Silk Hydration Sunscreen, I haven’t had to put the After Sun to the ultimate test to see how it works on burns. The moisturizer is however very silky and light and makes my skin feel soft.
