Hawaiian Tropic SPF 6 Tanning Oil Is Great

The topic of today's article is my favorite outdoor tanning oil, Hawaiian Tropic SPF 6 Golden Tanning Dry Oil. Since its SPF factor is lower than normal, this is really an oil for intermediate to advanced tanners. If you are new to tanning, you will want to stick with a product that has a higher SPF rating, at least 15. Hawaiian Tropic sells other lotions with higher SPF rating and although I have not tried them I am sure they are great.

Is It A Tanning Oil or Sunscreen?

This is really the great thing about this product. The front of the bottle says both "tanning dry oil" and also "sunscreen". You get the best of both worlds with this oil: You get the necessary protection from the sun's intense rays while also maximizing your tan. I regularly use this oil and have found both of these statements to be true. I have never gotten a sunburn while using this oil and also it made my tan much deeper than I ever thought possible.

How To Apply The Oil

It's really easy. Hawaiian Tropic products generally come in two flavors: spray on and rub on. I personally like the spray on variety because it's a lot easier to get an even application. Two important points of advice when using this oil or any other tanning oil. First, never spray it directly on your face. You don't want it to get in your eyes or hair by accident. I always first spray on my hands and then apply to my face. Second, never spray it near your swimsuit. The oil will get into your swimwear and damage it (and also cause a smell over time). The better solution is to spray some on your hands and the rub it around your tan lines before putting your swimsuit on. Taking these two points into consideration, the rest is really easy. Just spray it evenly. After spraying, I always like to rub it around too to make sure no spot is missed.

Where To Buy Hawaiian Tropic

The easiest place to purchase your tanning oil is your local Longs or Walgreens. They always have this product on sale during the summer time. A little secret to save some money is to stock up at the end of summer. This oil does not come cheap and you can save some serious cash by purchasing it in bulk at the end of the summer when it goes on sale. Also, don't worry about it going bad. The back of the bottle indicates that the bottle is a special plastic that does not absorb and protects the delicate tanning oil.

The Benefits Tanning Oil

In addition to the benefits described above, there are other benefits to using Hawaiian Tropic oil. First, it moisturizes your skin. Tanning can quickly dry out your skin. This is not a lot of fun because it starts itching. Hawaiian Tropic contains Aloe Vera which is essential for keeping your skin moisturized. Another benefit to the oil is it maximizes your tan. The oil makes your skin shiny and actually takes hold of the sun's rays and draws them in, seriously. A final note is that this is an outdoor tanning lotion. Outdoor lotions are not for use in your local tanning salon. When tanning indoors, you will want to make sure to buy a lotion specifically for indoor tanning.
