Even though there’s a variety of new contenders in the sun care marketplace, some products become classics that you can rely on each summer to deliver a natural bronze as well as sufficient sun protection. Kao’s Jergens Glow and Energizer’s Hawaiian Tropic, both available at drugstores, fit the bill.
With Jergens Natural Glow Revitalizing Daily Moisturizer ($8.99), you can keep your glow going - no beach time necessary. The Medium to Tan variation offers the most impact – even on fair skin – without looking orange. A subtle shimmer makes it useful for daytime wear as well, if desired, and the wear is lightweight. According to the company, this leading lotion sunless tanner contains antioxidants as well as vitamin E. This spring, the brand rolled out an SPF 20 version of this mainstay.
Meanwhile, Hawaiian Tropic’s Shimmer Effect Lotion SPF 20 ($9.99) is ideal for a day in the sunshine. This creamy formulation is best known for its tropical coconut scent, dazzling mica mineral-fueled shimmer and sun protection, of course. According to the company, this SKU is infused with an exotic blend of flora and fruit extracts. The brand’s
Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer Effect After Sun Moisturizer, Coconut Papaya ($7.99) is noteworthy as well. A line extension is the new lotion/sunscreen hybrid for Summer 2012.
