Hawaiian Tropic; The Smell of Summer - New Product Range

Hope you're all having a fabulous Friday ladies, the sun is out where I am and I've got a weekend of things to do with the girlies planned so should be muchos fun! - Will try and get some decent photies so I can do some OOTD posts next week :)

So yesterday as I was in my local Asda, purchasing the obligatory Sugar Free Redbull 12 pack and a rather large pick 'n' mix, I found myself somehow in the beauty & cosmetics aisle... How did that happen!? hehe

I was rather excited to come across all of the Hawaiian Tropic Tanning Oils and Sunscreens on special offer [£6 per bottle] along with a new product range which the company has launched! 

I managed to get my hands on these two gorgeous products...

Hawaiian Tropic Coconut Body Butter and Hawaiian Tropic Sunkissed Moisturising Lipgloss SPF 25 in Mango and Papaya

For me Hawaiian Tropic is just the smell i associate with going on holiday and being in a gorgeous hot country lying around a crystal clear pool *Ahhhh get me to a plane asap!!*.. When I opened the body butter to have a quick smell I was reminded so very clearly how much I love this brand and their very memorable scent.. It smells heavenly, just like the oils and lotions and is a gorgeous creamy texture. I haven't had a chance to use it just yet, but I can't wait to slap it on, smell like I'm on holiday and be fabulously moisturised at the same time! 
The lip gloss on the other hand I have tried; the smell is AMAZING! As soon as I applied it to my lippies I was aware of how smooth the texture is and how moisturising it was. However, I must warn you; it tastes as good as it smells and I had to restrain myself from licking it off! It comes in a very handy tube, similar to the Lancome Juicy Tubes, which makes for easy application and I must have reapplied about 3-4 times last night cause it felt so good and this morning my lips are super soft and supple! Due to it having a spf of 25 also, it'll be perfect to carry about in your bag during the summer to stop your lips getting nasty burns or becoming chapped :)

I will definitely be repurchasing both of these products, like I said before I picked them up in Asda, the body butter was a mere £4 and the gloss was just £3 - You can also pick the butter up in 'Lime Coolada' and the gloss in 'Island Berry' 

So girlies, if you're like me and love Hawaiian Tropic I'd suggest you hot foot it down to your local Asda and pick these products up ASAP! 

Much love and coconuts ;)

  2. Yumm I love hawaiian tropic, I hope they will be coming out with the body butter here it looks amazing!

  3. The lipgloss sounds great especially with it being spf 24...normally lipgloss' only go upto factor 15!

  6. @ Fee - Ahh I know, my lips get terribly dehydrated when out in the sun and I hate with a passion when they're chapped, think this will do just the trick though! Had it on all day today again hehe
