Travel & Lifestyle | Sunshine, Lollipops And Rainbows

So… I’ve been sending out a lot of social media lately about needing a vacation with Julio. Though I’m still trying to decide where our adventures will take us next, the fact remains that the summer is coming to Canada after a ridiculously long winded winter. With it comes the much needed sun, an it’s time to start thinking about skincare and keeping yourself safe. It may be all about sunshine, lollipops and rainbows.. but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be prepared for the warmer weather!

Iconic brands such as Hawaiian Tropic and Banana Boat have released some great new products this season, which are perfect for the whole family and beauty enthusiasts alike. Here are some items we will be picking up for weekends in the park with Canela and afternoons on the beach around the world!


NEW Banana Boat® SunComfort™ Lotion (Available in SPF 30 and 50)

  • Broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection
  • Sand easily brushes off with unique lightweight formula
  • Moisturizes to relieve dryness that can be caused by the sun, chlorine or salt water
  • Good for everyday use
  • Water resistant (80 minutes)

This summer, the only thing your family needs is the freedom to have fun in the sun, and Banana Boat® has got you covered. Also available in convenient on-the-go travel size lotion and continuous spray, we will be getting our hands on this both for our summer and hopefully for a tropical beach!


NEW Hawaiian Tropic® Silk Hydration Weightless (Available in SPF 15, 30 and 50)

  • Broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Non-greasy
  • Contains vitamins C & E
  • Tropical fragrance
  • Water-resistant for up to 80 minutes
  • Recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation for daily use

I always smile when I smell Hawaiian Tropic because it reminds me of the summer. 


NEW Hawaiian Tropic® Ultra Radiance After Sun

  • Contains light reflecting mica minerals that add a delicate shimmer to the skin
  • Blended with Shea butter complex and mango fruit extract
  • Luscious Island Mango fragrance

Only when I met Julio did I come to realize the importance of After Sun and how soothing it can be – especially if you ask that special someone to get your back after a romantic afternoon in the sun together. An important part of my summer routine to stay hydrated and looking my best! 

Like I said, we all love being in the sun and enjoying the warmer months… but it’s important to be smart about your skincare choices. We love the new products from Hawaiian Tropic & Banana Boat and can’t wait to get our hands on them.
