Now it’s been a while since I’ve done a product review so it’s about time I write one! This summer I fell in love… with a body butter that smells absolutely gorgeous. It’s called Hawaiian Tropic After Sun Body Butter Exotic Coconut.
Hawaiian Tropic After Sun Body Butter Exotic Coconut
I’m always looking for an amazing body lotion. I already found a really good one, Aveeno Skin relief moisturizing lotion, but this time I’ve really hit the home run.
I was packing for a trip to Greece earlier in the summer and decided to pre-order some sun lotion and nail varnish – you know the way you can often order your holiday gear in advance and it will be waiting for you at your airplane seat? That’s when I noticed this pretty pot of after sun lotion and thought I’d give it a try. Needless to say I haven’t looked back since 🙂
I smelled of exotic coconut throughout our vacation. I was hooked and I’ve used this after sun lotion as my body butter since.
What’s so great about this after sun lotion?
The best things about Hawaiian Tropic After Sun Body Butter are:
- It smells great
- It feels rich but absorbs quickly
- It moisturizes really well and makes skin feel soft
This body butter smells delicious
I’m very picky when it comes to how lotions smell. I mean, I hate it if they smell too strong – I feel like I can’t breath properly.
It’s very difficult to explain how this body butter smells, its name “exotic coconut” actually describes it quite well. It smells like an exotic summer holiday. The smell is sweet, yet a bit tangy. There’s something that reminds me of pears in it as well. It is strong but somehow doesn’t bother me at all, quite the opposite.
Moisture for dry and sensitive skin
The texture of the body butter is soft and creamy, but it actually absorbs in your skin really quickly and doesn’t leave it feeling sticky at all.
The after sun lotion promises to moisturize skin for 12 hours and that’s how it feels: It leaves the skin feeling soft.
I have a very sensitive skin and some body butters leave my skin feeling itchy. And I react easily to preservatives such as methylisothiazolinone. Hawaiian Tropic After Sun Body Butter doesn’t irritate my skin at all and even though it’s quite rich I’ve used it in my face as well without any problems. I would just make sure that I don’t use it around the eyes.
Is there anything negative?
Well, I think I’ve already used like 4 pots of the lotion. In about as many months. As I mentioned it’s quite creamy so you’ll end up using a lot of it. And it’s not a big pot, just 200 ml so you’ll be buying a new tub before you know it.
What can I say, I absolutely love this body butter.
It smells like tropical summer and you’ll feel like you’re pampering yourself with this one. It’s not even too expensive, so give it a go!
I don’t think you can find a much better after sun lotion but it works amazingly as a year-round body butter for dry skin as well.
