Review: Hawaiian Island Creation Suncare SPF 50

If you're planning on swimming and sweating in the Summer sun, then you need to make sure your sunscreen that is up to the task of protecting you in those harsh conditions. I think I have found the ultimate sunscreen for the job. Hawaiian Island Creation SPF 50 Sunscreen ($11.99) is waterproof, sweatproof, and kept me from burning during my very sunny, very hot first sprint distance triathlon. Created by a biochemist who just happens to be an avid surfer, this sunscreen stays put in adverse conditions – it won't run into your eyes.

Virtually odorless, HIC sunscreen protects against both UVA and UVB rays. It also doesn't feel greasy and won't affect your grip or make you slip. It is, however, not considered noncomedogenic. But a clogged pore is fleeting and a wrinkle is forever.

Pick up some HIC at DrugStore.com before you head to the beach.

Thanks for the suggestion. I have been looking for a new high SPF block.

I think I will pass. I currently use Neutrogena Helioplex Dry Touch 70 and love it. My skin is not oily, but some suncreens make me looks greasy, but this one does not. I use it instead of moisturizer, then about 15 mins later I apply tinted moisturizer (which also happens to have spf.) Apparently there is a new SPF 85?! Whether or not the super high numbers are more gimmick than science, I have not determined. http://www.neutrogena.com/ProductsDetails_329.asp

ditto on the oily effect! I've heard a lot of talk about Neutrogena's helioplex sunscreen? apparently it stays on longer than any other products and isn't greasy... has anyone tried it????

I like that it doesn't run into your eyes, but my skin is really oily and I'm guessing this stuff would make me break out like crazy.
