Hawaiian Tropic Tanning Dry Oil Spf 12 Review



Very water resistant.


Hard to apply evenly.


We are continuing this months theme of sunscreens (please summer cant you come sooner?). I got this sunscreen in the US for a fairly ok price. The first half of the spray bottle I used up in a few days since its very unpractical and you get way more then you wanted. So basically its a very unpractical bottle and the oil is hard to apply, so you use way to much per use – and end up feeling pretty “oiled up” and uncomfortable – which is what one fears when buying anything with the words “oil” and “sun” in it. The oil smells great of coconut, which is fantastic if you are into that – but dont expect your man to be intersted in using this one (I never meet one who wants to smell like a coconut dream really).

The only thing I really like about this oil is that its water resistant (80 minutes in water) and didn‘t make my face break out in pimples (which many oils do). The bottle lasted me for about 1,5 weeks of everyday use.

  1. Funny I stumbled on this article this evening. I have been researching sunscreen ingredients all weekend after having a break out from using one. In the U.S. they use a lot of unsafe chemical sunscreen ingredients. It’s really quite upsetting! I found tons of information on ewg.org. It’s definitely worth a read. I learned a ton about sunscreen and safety that I never knew about.
