As described in my earlier post , I am very particular about sun protection because my skin tans and burns easily .Every summer I am on the lookout for good sunscreens though I am quite satisfied with my Lotus herbals safe Sun UV Screen Matte Gel SPF 50 but this is not good enough for my hands (my hands are darker than my face and this looks too powdery and cake-y on them ,so I try to use something different on my hands and face ).I also liked Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+ but it felt just a bit greasy on my already oily face and that made me look darker till I washed my face.
So I decided to try a new sunscreen-The L’Oreal Paris UV Perfect Aqua Essence Sunscreen Moisturizer .Read on to find out about my experience with this product.
Price – Rs 475/- for 30 ml
PROS of L’Oreal Paris UV Perfect Aqua Essence Sunscreen Moisturizer
1.Easily available .
2. Small and convenient to carry and spill proof too .
3.Specially formulated for Asian skin tones , SPF 30 Pa+++,broad spectrum protection .
4.Water based essence so absorbs easily as you can see in the picture below , it does not make the sun greasy or sticky or leaves a cast at all .You do not feel the sunscreen. I love how the texture goes completely invisible and dry !
5. 12 hour long protection .
6. Not strong smelling
7. No tanning visible after 2 weeks of use .
CONS of L’Oreal Paris UV Perfect Aqua Essence Sunscreen Moisturizer
1. Slightly pricey .Also more quantity is needed
2. Opaque tube so it is difficult to find out when the product may finish .
3. Does not control oiliness .
FINAL VERDICT – So far I have liked the easy to absorb texture and the amount of sun protection it is giving me , though more quantity is needed so slightly expensive for long term. Does not mattify, leaves skin somewhat greasy due to natural sebum and sweat .
I rate it a 4 /5 .
