      Comments about Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30:

      I am fair skinned and use sunscreen like water in the summer (I reapply like crazy). I bought this because I had run out of my other sunscreen and like the smell and the fact that it was not greasy after applying. Well after one day of sitting on the beach and reapplying each time after getting out of the water and also about every hour and a half...I got BURNT to a crisp. This sunburn is the worst that I have ever gotten and there have been sometimes that I have even forgotten sunscreen. I am throwing my bottle out and will never buy again.

            Comments about Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30:

            This is by far my favorite sunscreen; I always buy multiple bottles at a time!! My skin is fair/light and I'm the burn-then-tan skin type. I had lots of sun damage accumulating on my arms and chest that I'm now treating with stuff from my dermatologist. To protect my progress, I've been using this as a daily body lotion for at least 2yrs now. So far it's been doing its job preventing new brown spots and redness from coming up, but it's also kept me from being sunburnt to a crisp in various climates. I work in film and sometimes go without any shelter for most of the day. I've used it in super sweaty/ humid places like Florida and Taiwan, in and out of the water (but always re-applying) on beaches in Central America (you get the strongest sun exposure near the equator), I've cooked my brain in the Mojave Desert for 12hrs without even the slightest pink or tan line, and it's protected my skin from the blinding glare off of glazed-over snow in various parts of the world. To be fair, just about any broad spectrum SPF should be able to prevent sunburn/sun damage. But the reason I love this one so much is the FEEL &FINISH. It just feels like body lotion, not sticky or greasy like sunscreen, and my hair doesn't get all matted up against my back the way it does with others. The finish is radiant and my sun damaged chest looks slightly smoother, brighter, more youthful. Having hated sunscreen so much, for my whole life, this is the first one I've been able to make a habit of using daily. That's what's really important. Find one that you're actually going to use everyday! Also, ULTA please bring back the SPF 50 version!!!

                This surprised me! SPF 30 and so very lightweight. It smells divine and has so many antioxidants included. I have tested many sunscreens but this will always be my go to. It works and is good for your skin. I use it on my rosacea prone face with no problem. It sinks in immediately with a matt finish. No oil slick here. I never see it advertised, I guess they don't have to. It's just that good.

                    I bought this sunscreen a while ago. To start off, I am very fair skinned, I know this so I reapply as often as it says, and when coming out of water.
                    I used it once at a pool BBQ, and was fried from head to toe. I blamed it on myself as I thought I would have to reapply more often and maybe I didn't do that. So I kept it around but told myself I would never use it again.
                    Yesterday I was going on a day trip to the lake and this was this only sunscreen I could find so I brought it. I lathered up before I left the house, upon arriving at the lake, and every time I got out of the water and dried off. I still managed to get completely fried. Not only me, but everyone who used it who aren't as fair skinned as me used it and all were extremely sunburnt as well. I'm not sure if I got a dud bottle or what but I'm telling you, and everyone who reads this IT DOESN'T WORK.
                    Don't make the same mistake as I did and trust it twice.

                        I have used Sheer Touch SPF 50 for serveral years. I use it on my face and I like it better than many face-specific products that I have tried. It is not shiny, and not greasy feeling. I haven't had any problems with clogged pores or break-outs.

                        This is a really good sunscreen. I go between this and the sun bum lotion. This smells really good and protects from sunburn quite well.

                            This sunscreen is my FAVORITE. As a frequent beach-goer sunscreen is really important to me and this one leaves me feeling non-greasy and is long-lasting. I even use it for my face, when with other brands I had to buy a separate one that did not clog pores. My favorite part though, is that it smells AMAZING. I sometimes even use it for daily wear on my arms without feeling sticky all day and have a nice not-overwhelming shimmer.

                              The texture of this product is nice and applies very smoothly compared to a lot of other sunscreens I've tried, almost like a thin lotion. The reason I'm only giving it 4 stars is that the scent isn't my favorite. It's a tropical fruit punch smell which is just a little too sickly sweet for my tastes, but I'm sure others would love it. (I prefer the scent of Sun Bum which is more coconutty.)

                              Last year, my husband and I took a trip to Hawaii for our 10 year anniversary. It was the first real trip we had ever been on. We had brought along some no-name cheap sunscreen that we quickly ran out of. Off to Lahaina to buy some more sunscreen - and this Hawaiian Tropic sunscreen was on sale. I had never bought it before in my life - but I will never buy another again. This sunscreen goes on 10x better than any other sunscreen I've ever tried, and you're not left feeling oily or shiny - it just feels like you've put on the best moisturizer. It protected amazingly well under the Hawaiian sunshine - and the smell is amazing. It is finally summer in Northern Ontario, Canada - and I grabbed a few bottles of this sunscreen again. As we starting getting the kids sunscreened, my hubby and I both took a deep breath, looked at each other, and both said, "Ahh... Hawaii!" - in addition to being the nicest sunscreen I've ever tried, I think we are now both psychologically linked to its fragrance. 5 out of 5 stars - would use this sunscreen (especially in Hawaii) again. :-)
