We hope you’re having a wonderful summer, lady pals! Beach days, ice cream trucks and patioooooos. Yeah, baby! It’s been a glorious summer in the city and it’s about to get even better with a Hawaiian Tropic giveaway we know you’ll LOVE!

But first, we have to get some housekeeping out the way. As fun and carefree as summer should be, there’s one thing that we ALWAYS need to be mindful of – protecting our skin, and nobody does it better than Hawaiian Tropic. Here are three tips for staying on top of the sun protection game (and away from the burn-y game):

  1. Make sunscreen a part of your daily routine. Whether you use an app to remind you or throw it on when you do your makeup or brush your teeth, it’s super important to protect your skin on the daily from UV rays.
  2. Don’t forget to reapply, especially if you’re working outside, sweating or swimming. Sun is strongest between 10am and 2pm so be EXTRA careful during the peak hours.
  3. Use the product wisely! Your face requires a teaspoon-equivalent of sunscreen while your arms and legs need a tablespoon.


To celebrate the final week of our summer partnership with Hawaiian Tropic and the EPIC #HTSummerStoryWin contest, we’re doing something a little different:

Not one, not two…but FIVE readers will score a Hawaiian Tropic prize pack pictured above. What’s in it? Hawaiian Tropic beach tote, beach towel, water bottle, Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch SPF 30 spray (we’re OBSESSED with this spray), Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration SPF 50 and the Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration SPF 30. What else can you possibly need this summer? We’ve thought of everything!

We’ll be hosting giveaways on Twitter and Facebook alllllll week long!

To enter on Twitter, all you have to do is submit an entry for our #HTSummerStoryWin contest. We’ll be selecting three we love between Monday and Wednesday and awarding them a prize pack.

Then, on Thursday and Friday, we’ll be taking the giveaway to Instagram by regramming pics from @HTropic_CA. To enter, fans will have to follow @shedoesthecity and @HTropic_CA and leave a comment below the pics; it’s that easy!

Contest is open to Canadian residents only, including Quebec.
