An Ode to Hawaiian Tropic

Happy Monday! I’m off to Bald Head Island, NC, for my family’s annual vaca. The packing started early, per usual! Since the days of sunbathing on a black tar roof of my college dorm are long gone, I practically have to schlep a separate suitcase for sun protection. The options are endless and, I’m happy to report, keep getting better. Even though there are many sun care brands available these days, Hawaiian Tropic gives me the sun protection I need and the indulgence factor I love! I’m loving the brand’s new products that provide high performance protection and are just as indulgent. The new Island Sport line still looks and smells like signature Hawaiian Tropic but offers SPF 30 protection that’s water and sweat resistant for up to 80 minutes—essential for lounging seaside. I’ve always been a lotion girl (this one is ultra light and nongreasy), but the Sport Clear Spray Sunscreen is incredibly handy when you’re competing with sand and don’t want a mess on your hands. Other goodies in my bag: Rowley Eyewear sunglasses // Tess & Tricia Bella necklace // Floral + Black Stripe bikini // Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss in Petal.

What’s your favorite Hawaiian Tropic product? Let’s discuss.
