The 4th of July is just around the corner. Be prepared for the long weekend of sun and fun with the fantastic sunscreen line from Hawaiian Tropic. Here are a few of my favorite products to keep my kids and my skin protected all summer long.

HT island sport lotion

Perfect for summer activities like hiking, biking or playing sports. The Hawaiian Tropic Island Sport is a super light lotion that absorbs quickly and won’t leave a greasy residue. Best part is this formula is sweat resistant so it won’t run into your eyes when the temperature rises.

Hawaiian Tropic ® Island Sport® Lotion Sunscreen is our new line of high performance sunscreen with an oil-free, non-greasy formula that won’t clog pores. Offering UVA and UVB protection, this sunscreen lotion is fast-absorbing and sweat-resistant so it will stay in place and is water resistant up to 80 minutes.

The spray version of the Island Sport line this has the same great sweat resistant formula in the ease of a spray. I love the tropical scent and how quick and easy this makes sun protection. Great for on the go, I  keep one of these in my car and the kids sports guys. Love having quick sun protection for last minute adventures.

One of my favorite from the line, The Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance Spray Sunscreen smells fantastic and works even better. My kids and I hit a water park on one of the hottest days of the summer so far. I applied a quick spray of Sheer Touch Radiance Clear every 1.5- 2 hours and we not only smelled great but all came home sunburn free! A definite summer must have. You can’t beat the quality for the price.

Hawaiian Tropic® Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance Clear Spray Sunscreen provides our innovative Ultra Radiance formula in a new, convenient clear spray format. Containing an exclusive blend of guava, papaya and plumeria extracts, this sunscreen leaves skin noticeably soft and luminous.

ht touch of color

For the days I want to lay out and get a bit of color while still protecting from potention sun damage this is my go to. The temporary hint of color is perfect for skin that has been in hiding all winter. It smells amazing and the spray is very fine and absorbs well without leaving any residue.

Hawaiian Tropic® Touch of Color Tinted Spray Lotion Sunscreen offers an indulgent sun protection experience that moisturizes the skin, while providing an instant touch of natural-looking color.

Review: It Works! Ultimate Body Applicator

ultimate-body-appplicator-wrap-it-works

I recently had the chance to review the It Works! Ultimate Body Applicator. After all the buzz I have heard, I was interested to see if it was all hype. Now if you are hoping for some before and afters, I am sorry you are out of luck. After 3 kids the only way I am getting half naked in front of a camera is if you have a margarita water fountain. But I will share with you my personal thoughts. And if you want to see the reults, well bring me a few margaritas.

it works uba

I received the Ultimate Body Applicator pack with 4 one time use wraps. The wrap is set up for you to choose from multiple areas to firm and tighten. It comes in a sealed pouch and when you open it one side is covered with the special formula. The product itself has a nice herbal smell to it, I found it very refreshing. I chose to work on my stomach and I applied it threw my shirt on and went back to work. Once I applied the wrap I found the product kept it in place pretty well. Granted I work from a home office, so if you are a gymnastics coach maybe you do it in the evening.

After 45 minutes I removed the wrap and rubbed the remaining product into my skin. My skin felt good but I didn’t see any huge changes. I followed with another wrap every 72 hours per the instructions and by wrap three I could definitely see a difference. My skin of my stomach felt much firmer and smoother and it really started to diminish the appearance of my stretch marks. By the time the fourth and final wrap was done I was really happy with the results. My skin on my stomach felt much tighter, no more Santa laugh belly here.

Overall I think this is a great product, it really did help firm and tone my skin. Now this isn’t a miracle product, it won’t turn a beer belly into a six pack in 4 sessions. But if you are working on diet and exercise this is an excellent companion product to help you see the best results from your hard work. With summer swimsuit season coming this is a great product to help make sure you are looking and feeling your best as we start baring more skin.

This time of year breakouts and shine can be an issue for me. With the raising temps its much easier for dirt and sweat to not only create unsightly shine but also create blemishes. I had the chance to try SkinAgain Clear and the formula has been working wonders these last few hot weeks.

The serum is very lightweight and absorbs quickly and leaves my skin feeling smooth and shine free. I started to notice after the first few days that I was no longer fighting off mid day shine. The serum feels great on and my skin stayed shine free all day long.
