It’s summer time, and we all know how important sunblock is when you’re going to be outside. Recently, I was lucky enough to receive a box chock full of Hawaiian Tropic and Banana Boat’s new skin care products. I was literally on my way out the door to Arizona for a much needed vacation, so into my bag they went and I was on my way!
Arizona is a very hot and sunny place, and taking care of your skin is a must. I had lots of outdoor activities planned, including hiking Camelback Mountain and lounging in the sun next to the pool. This vacation was going to require some serious sunblock! Before starting the hike in full sun and 104 degree weather, I applied Banana Boat Performance Cool Zone Continuous spray in SPF 30. The spray nozzle applies the block evenly, and I was able to reach all of those vulnerable spots like the backs of my legs and shoulder blades. The cool zone spray has a light scent and is non greasy. It also cools your skin on contact, which was a welcome relief. I am pleased to report that I did not get a sunburn and the hike was amazing!
Day two was 111 degrees, but at least I was going to settle in with a book next to a sparkling swimming pool! Hawaiian Tropic’s Silk Hydration in SPF 30 was just right for the job. Silk Hydration contains protein ribbons and antioxidants which hydrate and protect the skin. This sunblock will shield you from both UVA and UVB rays and it stayed put throughout my many trips into the water to cool off! My skin stayed soft, and I loved the warm, tropical scent.
I give both of these products two thumbs up. No matter what your style of vacation is, I suggest arming yourself with one or both of these sunblocks and gear up for a great time!!
