SHELTON, Conn., April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Hawaiian Tropic^® announced
that they have retired their Miss Hawaiian Tropic Bikini Contests, and are
launching an online search for the "New Face" of Hawaiian Tropic. The brand,
which introduced new, premium formulas and updated packaging in recent years,
is inviting women to enter their nationwide Facebook contest and become the

Tropic stands for - beauty, confidence, style, enjoying the sun and keeping
skin healthy - will appear in Hawaiian Tropic advertising, receive an
all-expense-paid tropical vacation and serve as an official brand

Hawaiian Tropic has always been at the forefront of innovation, creating
luxurious sun care that pampers and protects the skin. The brand introduced
the first SPF 70 in 2000 and launched Silk Hydration sunscreen in 2012, the
first sun care to combine ribbons of moisturizer and sun protection. The brand
has evolved as consumers' expectations of sun protection have changed, but at
its core Hawaiian Tropic has remained committed to offering premium, indulgent
sun care products with soothing coconut scents and exotic island botanicals.
May 6 through May 31, 2013, women can enter the contest by visiting the
Hawaiian Tropic Facebook page and submitting a photo and information about
their personality and interests. Entries will be accepted until May 31.
Submissions will be reviewed by an independent panel of judges and the top
five finalists will be announced on June 28, 2013. Then, America will be able
to vote on the finalist they believe best embodies the modern Hawaiian Tropic
woman by visiting the brand's Facebook page. The finalist with the most votes
will be unveiled as the New Face of Hawaiian Tropic on July 19, 2013.
Throughout the contest, woman can also enter to win weekly prizes including
designer sunglasses, beach towels and Hawaiian Tropic product.
"The modern Hawaiian Tropic woman still loves to spend time in the sun, but
also understands the importance of sun care in helping to keep her skin
healthy," said Danielle Duncan, Brand Manager of Hawaiian Tropic. "We're
looking for a new face of the brand who captures that sensibility, and shares
the Hawaiian Tropic philosophy that broad-spectrum sun protection can be as
luxurious and pampering as any other beauty product."
