It’s crazy how many times I find myself singing about summer! I’ve got ~Summer Lovin’~ from Grease on my mind, and I recently downloaded one of my favourite songs of all time – ~The Boys of Summer~ by Don Henley.
Both songs evoke a feeling about summer that simply makes me smile. The idea of relaxing and being playful and just taking in the summer sun — it’s what summer truly means to me!
For me, summer also means practical sun care! Until a few years ago, I was awful when it came to managing my skin in the sun. Because my skin is so fair, I only have two colours — white and red. I don’t tan and, when I burn I REALLY burn.
Once I learned my lesson that I need protection from the sun, finding the right sunscreen became imperative.
Recently I had the chance to try Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion and the new Silk Hydration After Sun moisturizer. I have oily skin in the summer so I was really interested in seeing how the After Sun moisturizer would impact my skin.
The Silk Hydration Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 has a lot of great properties, including:
- UVA and UVB sun protection with hydrating ribbons infused with silk protein and shea butter;
- 12-hour moisture; and
- a silky, luxurious feel.
In addition, it is said to be light and non-greasy, waterproof and to contain a coconut fragrance.
And, if you need a strong version the Silk Hydration sunscreen lotion also comes in an SPF 50.
When I put on the sunscreen, I was immediately impressed by the fact that it wasn’t greasy! It blended in well and left my skin feeling soft (which I really liked!). I thought the scent smelled great — my dad actually asked me what type of perfume I was wearing and was surprised when I told him it was sunscreen! I also found, as I was popping in and out of the pool, that it as indeed waterproof. It definitely protected my skin and I know I’ll be picking up more in the future!
And the Silk Hydration After Sun Moisturizer?
Said to be designed to nourish skin after a day in the sun, it includes cooling aloe, an infusion of mango and shea butter, has a light tropical fragrance and provides 24 hours of hydration.
I liked the fact that the After Sun Moisturizer was light and didn’t leave my skin feeling greasy. The scent is absolutely gorgeous (I think it’s from the mango as it does have a sweet scent, which I adore)! My skin feels soft and I like the fact that I’m not only protecting my skin with the sunscreen but also moisturizing it after I’ve spent a day out in the sun!
