This has been a long pending review that I had been meaning to write. I bought Lakme Sun Expert SPF 50 PA+++ Fairness UV Sunscreen Lotion a long time ago and I saved some so that I can write a review and show you guys in picture how the finish is. So let’s get started.
Name of the product – Lakme Sun Expert SPF 50 PA+++ Fairness UV Sunscreen Lotion
Product Claims – Lakme Sun Expert SPF 50 PA+++ Fairness Sunscreen Lotion is perfect for those hot, sharp summer months. This cream is so light it can be used every day and right through the year but specially apt for indian summers. It prevents sunburn, dark spots, and premature aging. This cream is hypoallergenic, dermatologically tested and is perfect for normal to dry skin. You can apply this after cleansing and hydrating and before putting on makeup. When stepping out to meet your friends, just apply this and you’ll be ready with a glow that is also protecting you.
My Thoughts – Mehhh!!!!
It has a tube packaging and the cap closes tightly with a click. It is travel friendly and leak proof.
The texture is very thick which makes it very difficult to buff into the skin. The facial skin gets tugged while spreading the product. Although it says lotion but it’s a cream not a lotion.
The smell is somewhat weird. Apart from having ingredients like the Lemon Grass and Cucumber, the lotion smells of chemicals.
Now coming to the actual review, it does save you from sunburns and harsh sunlight. But there is no proof on aging part. So I wouldn’t comment on it. The cream leaves a white cast on skin which is the biggest turn off for me. I mean who wants to look like a ghost and roam around in sun ? Even after blending the white cast still remains. It says it works for normal to dry skin but it doesn’t. My skin is dry and looks and feels drier after using this. For some reason it takes away all the flow from my face. It mattifies the skin so this is best suited for oily skin and not dry.
So basically everything they claim is true provided the skin type is oily and not dry.
