Back in 2000 I went to an outdoor concert and got really, really, really severely sunburned. Since then, I always try to load up on the sunscreen when I go to outdoor shows or just outside in general. (Baseball games are another time I end up burnt.)
In my Influenster Vox Box there was some Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen SPF 30. It retails for $8.99 for a 6oz bottle and is available in SPF 12, 30 and 50. With its ultra-luxurious hydrating silk ribbons, Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration™ lotion sunscreen nourishes and pampers skin while providing broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection, and 12-hour moisturization when out in the sun.
There was really no better place to try it out than Mixtape Festival – Day 2. (Day 1 had overcast and rain so I figured I’d be ok without it) As soon as we sat down we loaded up on it. In addition to being sunscreen, it is also a moisturizer and I definitely noticed that my skin was feeling softer throughout the day. It didn’t really have a smell and wasn’t as greasy as some other sunscreens I have used in the past.
It was very bright and hot out, but I didn’t get burned at all. In fact, the top of my knees (which ALWAYS end up burned for me) actually looked a bit tanner than they were before the show. I definitely give the Silk Hydration two big thumbs up, and will be keeping the small bottle I received in my purse at all times to make sure I am always prepared for the sun!
I received a free sample of Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration in my Influenster VoxBox in order to try it out and post a review.
