Hello beautiful souls! ❤❤❤
What’s up with you all? 🙂
Summers might be a relief after the long Winters… Hitting the beaches, going on picnics.. everything is so heart warming… but it still pisses us off by making us tan horribly.. 🙁
As this scorching summer heat is becoming unbearable, we are finding umbrellas and day creams incapable of providing optimal protection to our delicate skin.. 🙁
All we want is lots and lots of chilled water and a Sunscreen with a good SPF content! ❤
Today I am going to review a Sunscreen that has provided me with satisfactory results and is a staple for me now a days, due to its affordable price and good protection.. ❤

MY TAKE ON THIS SUNSCREEN:
This sunscreen from Lotus Herbals, comes in an orange coloured tube, which resembles the products from the LOTUS SAFE SUN range. Although I don’t find the packaging really cute, it hardly matters. 😛 It has a mild and refreshing fragrance which I don’t think would really bother the sensitive noses! 😀
The cream has a normal consistency; Neither is it creamy nor runny and is white in colour. Although, the cream is not very lightweight, it doesn’t feel heavy on face. 🙂
A 50paise coin size amount of the sun block is enough to cover the whole face and neck. Now, it doesn’t get absorbed very quickly but a 30-seconds massage is enough to get the whole thing absorbed. ❤
After application I do find a thin-film like covering on my face, which might be due to its water-resistant property. 🙁
But dusting some face powder over it solves the problem. 🙂
Talking about its results, Yes it does its work nicely and protects my face quite effectively from tanning and sun burns. 😀
It also doesn’t make my skin darker like the lakme sunscreens do! 😛 ❤
COST: 50G costs INR195, 100G costs INR295

LISTING DOWN PROS AND CONS:
1. Quite affordable and easily available. Buy it from here !
2. Not much greasy ( Dont expect sunscreens to be totally oil free even when they are gel based when you have an oily skin like me! 😀 ).
3. Effective against sun burn and sun tan.
4. Gives satisfying protection from sun. ❤
1. IT CONTAINS PARABEN! Well, quite a big deal for me personally, but now a days everything that we use or consume have some sort of harmful chemical in them, don’t they? 🙁
2. The water-resistant property should have been available in higher SPFs too, but still, SPF30 gives optimum protection until you are out in sun for the whole day. ❤
MY FINAL TAKE: I think I will definitely repurchase it again… I also have the gel variant of Sunscreen from the same range.. Lotus Sunscreens are quite effective and affordable. ❤
Hope you guys liked it.. ❤
