Hawaiian Tropic Review – Let’s Get are Best Tan, Not a Burn

Like many people who try to get a great tan, but only get sun burned first, (I am one of those people) what happens is that they forget to apply sun block lotion or they think it’s too nasty or that it does not really work well. I know there are people like my wife who have very pale skin and it does not take long to burn. Well, the other day I came across a brand of sunscreen called Hawaiian Tropic and I was quite impressed with all the different products they have to keep us from looking like a red lobster. So I will list below all the best products they have and let you judge for yourself if they are good for you.

For all of you sports people who spend a lot of time in the sun, Hawaiian Tropic literally has got you covered with two great products. The first is Island Sport Lotion Sunscreen. What are the benefits of this sunscreen lotion? Well, let me list them for you: it’s a breathable, ultra-light sunscreen that won’t clog pores. It also is made of a fast-absorbing, sweat-resistant formula that won’t run into your eyes. The Fresh tropical scent broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection including water-resistance will last for up to almost an hour and a half.

The second Hawaiian Tropic sport sunscreen protection product is Island Sport Clear Spray Sunscreen. Here is what this one has to offer: fast and even coverage that sprays at any angle. It is also breathable, and like Island Sport Lotion is ultra-light and won’t clog pores. Clear Spray is fast-absorbing, and also has a sweat-resistant formula that get in your eyes. This sunscreen has a Fresh tropical scent and broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection. It too, is water-resistant and will last for at least 80 minutes. Both Island Sport Lotion Sunscreen and Island Sport Clear Spray Sunscreen are recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation.

It aids in the prevention of skin damage and skin aging from the sun, and helps your skin feel refreshed and pampered, and never greasy.

Nature Valley Review – The Best Taste of Goodness

I do not know about you, but when I was younger I never met a sugary snack that was not my friend! How about you ?

There is a company called Fruits & Passion that provides just the kind of the best products I am talking about. They have two product lines – one for the kitchen and the other for the washroom (bathroom.) Let’s see what they have to offer.

Cucina – for the kitchen

Image result for amazon buy button
I will list most of the Cucina products and give a brief overview so you at least know what they are and what to use them for. To begin with, I will tell you about Fruits & Passion Cucina Hand Soap. This is one that everybody needs, especially me. It is made with cold pressed olive oil and other olive derivatives with purifying and hydrating properties. This soap’s biodegradable formula gently cleans hands without drying them and leaves them delicately perfumed.

Tropic Sport Review – Best Sun Screen Protection

If you’re like me and live in the great white north and are stuck in the house all winter, I’ll bet you can’t wait until spring to get out and suck up some rays from the sun – until you turn into a red lobster and then wish you would have put on some UV block or something to help your skin. Just recently, I came across a great company called Tropic Sport, which specializes in the best skin care protection. They have all natural products that are Eco friendly too. So here is what they have and you can see for yourself if these products would be beneficial for you.


Image result for amazon buy button
The first Tropic Sport product I’d like to tell you about is Sunscreen SPF 30. It contains the following ingredients: essential oils and vitamins to create a moisturizing lotion. This sunscreen passes the U.S. FDA 80-minute water resistance tests.

Next is Sunscreen SPF 50. What does this one have in it? Let me tell you. It has Non-Nano 6.2% Titanium dioxide and 16.5% Zinc oxide and it goes on easy without being thick and goopy. (Because nobody wants to feel thick and goopy, especially on a hot day.)

Smear some of this one on you – it’s called Lip Balm SPF 15 – Coconut. The ingredients here are also tropical essential oils and vitamins to create a moisturizing lotion. You want to make sure your lips are protected too, right?

This next sunscreen is especially for your face. It is called Facestick SPF 30 (appropriately enough.) It should be applied on your face, nose and ears. Then just gently rub it in. It’s great for your face, but can also be used on the rest of your body.

In addition to these individual items, Tropic Sport has a great line up of bundles you can purchase. I will list them for you. The first is Sunscreen SPF 30. You can purchase three 6.5 oz bottles to stick in your car, different rooms of your house or anywhere you would find convenient to grab them.

The next bundle package is called Deluxe 32 oz Sunscreen Bundle. It contains three travel-size (1.5 oz each) bottles of sunscreen SPF 30 and one large (32 oz) bottle of sunscreen SPF 30.

If you like spending a lot of time in the water or sun, I think the Jamie O’Brien’s Favorites Bundle may be just right for you. It contains 16.5 oz bottle of sunscreen SPF 30, 1 6.2 oz bottle of body wash, 1 6.5 oz bottle of Cooling Gel and 1 SPF 15 Lip Balm.

This one I found to be interesting because it contains something that most sunscreens do not. I will tell you in the description. It is called Protection Kit and it has the following products: one 6.5 oz bottle of Sunscreen SPF 30, one 1.5 oz bottle of sunscreen SPF 30 and a Cancer Detection Kit (Isn’t that something? I’ve never heard of that in a sunscreen kit before.)

There are a couple more sunscreen products but I will let you check those out for yourself. You get the idea – Tropic Sport has a very generous variety to pick from.


Image result for amazon buy button
Just to cover all the bases, as they say in baseball, Tropic Sport has a wonderful line-up of Cleansers and Moisturizers too. Let’s start with Cleansers and see what they offer. To start, they have a Facial Cleanser that helps you to revitalize your skin and of course, they use all natural ingredients which gently and effectively remove sunscreen, chlorine, salt and sand, as well as facial moisturizer for ultimate moisture replenishment. This product comes in different volumes so you can choose the size that suits you best.

Here is a skincare product that might help a lot of people. It is called Facial Scrub and it gently removes old dead skin and renews skin with a blend of coconut oil and natural rice and aloe extracts. (My Mrs says she bets it smells good! She’s a big fan of coconut.)

How about some Body Wash products? Tropic Sport carries two sizes of these: 3.0 and 6.5 oz bottles. There body wash has a cleansing combination of aloe, natural oils, and extracts (and just like the face wash, it is easy on your skin.) The body wash items are also available in bundle kits and a travel trio pack so take a look and choose the one that fits your needs.

The last category in skincare is Moisturizers. Let’s see what Tropic Sport has to offer us in this section. They have a Body Lotion that comes in 3.0 and 6.5 oz bottles. The ingredients are Tucuma Butter, Aloe and Vitamin E. All of these combine to moisturize and replenish your skin from toe to head. (I have to be different.) And not only does the body wash help your skin to look and feel healthy, it also has a fresh tropical scent for you to enjoy, to boot!

Next we have the Tropic Sport Facial Moisturizers. These are made up of essential tropical oils, Aloe and Vitamin E. These moisturizers will hydrate your facial skin naturally. They come in 1.5 and 3.0 oz containers.

Cooling Gel is the next item on the list. This gel is used to relieve you from sunburn if you happen to stay out soaking up those rays a little (or a lot) too long. Tropic Sport’s Cooling Gel has Aloe and Tea Tree Oil to provide soothing relief to your over-done skin. This one comes only in one size, which is a 6.5 oz bottle. The products in this category also are available in Bundles and even a Travel Pack Trio.

To Close

Image result for amazon buy button
So the next time you are enjoying a day in the sun, reach for some Tropic Sport protection products before you burn to a crisp. Or – you COULD move farther north where there is cold winter-weather all year long that makes you want to stay indoors. I know what my choice is. I’m heading over to Tropic Sport the best.

Juice Beauty Review – The Best Organic, Ladies

I live in a household of two girls: my wife and my daughter, each with extremes on makeup and skincare. The wife wears none to very little makeup, but skincare is more of a passion for her with her daily routines. But the daughter changes like the weather on makeup and skincare. This brings me to Juice Beauty, with their best organic skincare and makeup and all their best products for us to look through. There are two main categories: Makeup and Skincare, which are broken down into subcategories into which I will describe what they have to offer. Let’s begin with skincare and finish up with makeup products.

Next is, Instant Eye Lift Algae Mask, full of antioxidants and nutrients from algae, resulting in the reduced appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and puffiness, leaving your eyes brightened and refreshed.

My wife would like this section because she sometimes complains that when she drinks something hot or very cold her teeth let her know about it. Colgate give you thirteen products to help with sensitive teeth. One is Deep Clean that has anti-sensitivity along all the other features that go with Colgate toothpaste. How about this one called Daily Repair. It also has anti-sensitivity plus repairs early gum and teeth damage and strengthens teeth by remineralizing weakened enamel.

Another one is called Sensitive Lasting Fresh, which is clinically proven to relieve sensitivity and provides 24/7 sensitivity protection when you brush your teeth twice a day. One last thing on this is builds protection against future sensitivity. Put this one in your mouth: it is called Sensitive Prevent & Repair. It also offers clinically proven sensitivity relief. It aids to repairs and strengthen weakened tooth enamel and has a mild mint flavor. There are some more sensitive toothpastes, but for now I just wanted to give you some to think about.
