Hello once again Dearies ! As promised I am back with another sunscreen review .Without adding any drama I shall proceed to the matter at hand .Today I shall be reviewing Lotus herbals safe Sun UV Screen Matte Gel SPF 50 .
The Tube from the front
Price –Rs 295 /- for 50 gms pack .It is easily available at drug stores , cosmetics counters and online .
What Lotus Herbals says —A gel based sunscreen that’s so light that it almost vanishes from your skin and leaves a never before matte feel. Especially for oily skin.
Active Ingredients — Comfrey (Symphytum Officinale) ,Sebum Control Vanilla (Vanila Plamifolia) ,Soothing Horse Chestnut (Trapa Bispinosa),UV Protector
The back of the tube
The Packaging –It comes in an orange flip top tube and it is easy to dispense the product in the required quantity .The seal is tight so it is travel friendly .
How to use –To be applied about twenty minutes before stepping out in the sun on all exposed body parts .To be reapplied after two hours .
The product--It is a milky looking gel .Absorbs fast and feels completely non sticky .The sun protection and anti- tan protection provided is very good .Has a balm like soothing property on application .
The gel on application
1. Ultra soothing ,skin feels moisturized and supple .
2. Matte look ,does not make the face oily .
3. Oil controlling – over the period of wear,it also avoids the skin from getting greasy which was a major concern with some other sunscreens .
4. Gel based sunscreen ,since it is not creamy , it does not leave a painted surface behind . It gets absorbed very fast in a few gentle strokes .Nobody can guess that you are wearing sunscreen !
5. Good two hours plus of sun protection after which you need to re-apply . 6. Travel and pocket friendly .
After blending completely
1. The only con can be that it is not waterproof so sweating will reduce the efficacy of sun protection .
The Final Verdict — I would rate it a 4.5 / 5 .
To summarize ,it is a great sunscreen for all skin types .It protects , soothes, mattifies and controls oil .That is a multi-functioning product for you at the price of one product !!!
