With the sizzling hot sun in Malta, it’s important that you look after you skin properly and ensure you are fully protected from head to toe. Now that the weather has finally realised it’s summer, last weekend I decided to take advantage of some rays to
top up start my tan, with a little help from Hawaiian Tropic Malta.
With my own little piece of paradise on my terrace, I looked out all the essentials for a day of relaxation. With Ed Sheeran blaring away, I topped up my water jug (remember it’s very important to stay hydrated in the sun), laid out my towel and started applying my Hawaiian Tropic Satin Protection 50+ (I’m very pale!) , not forgetting my lips I applied some Hawaiian tropic lip gloss and settled back with a stack of glossy magazines.
Hawaiian Tropic Satin Protection applies easily and evenly to the skin, even with factor 50 - it didn’t leave me looking even whiter than I already am. The ultra radiance formula soaks in easily and gave my skin a little bit of a glow so my white skin wasn’t blinding others. The cream is also oil free so there was no chance of me slipping off my sun lounger! If you’ve ever used Hawaiian Tropic before you’ll know how amazing it smells, it brings back fond memories of holidays with its coconut and tropical fragrance.
Now this all sounds great - but does it protect your skin from sun? The short answer is - Yes with an A+ rating. Hawaiian Tropic Satin protection and lip gloss both protect your skin from UVA (4* superior rating) and UVB rays, which is the first thing I look for in a sun screen. I feel it’s important to have both because while UVB are the rays that burn your skin, UBA are the rays that cause premature ageing in the skin. Neither of which I want to happen, so always pick up sun protection with both.
While getting my tan on, I made sure I reapplied protection every few hours to stop getting burnt. Not forgetting to top up my lip gloss, not only did I look fabulous with a glossy pout - it stopped my lips from getting burnt as well. The non sticky gloss just glides on, and is also moisturising - not to mention that the Island berry flavour smells amazing which i've been using daily since.
After an exhausting day doing not much, having read all celebrity gossip I called it day around 4pm and hit the shower to wash off my sun cream and admire my tan in the bathroom mirror - there is just something about showers that make your tan look ten times better - right?
After feeling refreshed, I applied the Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration After Sun to keep my skin moisturised. The dual ribbon formula is infused with cooling aloe gel and ultra moisturising lotion which left my skin silky smooth. Even the next morning I noticed that my skin was still silky smooth. This is another Hawaiian Tropic product that smells amazing with its coconut and papaya fragrance, with such a holiday smell it was almost disappointing that I had to go to work the next day and not do it all over again!
If you're spending any time in the sun this summer (which i’m sure you will be..) I recommend you check out the Hawaiian Tropic range if not for the A+ protection but for the amazing smell alone (but protection is just as important!). They have a full range of protection factors as well as tanning oils for those with already tanned skin as well as after sun care.
