Once TikTokers get a hold of a unique product, it’s bound to blow up within days. That was the case with Vacation Classic Whip SPF 30 ($22), which has been sold out for months but is now making its triumphant return to market. On February 2nd, shoppers can finally snag the whipped cream-inspired sunscreen that’s had over 1,000 people on its waitlist.
Vacation’s goal is to make sunscreen, something so important, feel like fun rather than a chore, and they’ve done just that with this luxurious product. I was lucky enough to grab one of the Vacation Classic Whip SPF cans before they sold out, and it sparks just as much joy as you hope it would. I don’t understand how, but it remarkably looks and feels just like whipped cream—but smells much better. From the design of the can to the dispenser, which creates star-shaped mountains, everything is picture-perfect.
Take this can to the beach, and your friends will all suddenly want to reapply. It goes on smooth and satisfying—think shaving cream but a bit lighter. It melts in immediately, leaving no film. The sensorial experience is not where the benefits stop. Of course, its true purpose is to protect from sun damage with SPF 30.
As you’d imagine, creating a cosmetic iteration of whipped cream that was efficacious was no easy feat. Development was overseen by New York dermatologist Elizabeth Hale, MD, and scientists, so you know it’s trustworthy. Meanwhile, engineers in the food industry worked on the first-of-its-kind packaging.
