Hiiii Dear Friends! ☺☺☺
I hope everyone is doing great! ❤
So, today I shall be talking about a sunscreen! 🙂
Well I know, some of you might be thinking that Summers are long gone and it’s already Monsoon now! 😀 And when We are not able to see the Sun, how can he see us! 😛
But that is not the case! Clouds, no matter how thick or black, cannot completely stop the harmful UV rays from penetrating to reach the earth surface!
So, by the time we are playing in the rain, or working outdoors.. the damage by the sun is already done! 🙁
A good waterproof Sunscreen is a must during monsoons!
And today, I will be talking about one such product, that works great, both for Summers and monsoons! ❤❤❤

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
Well, I bought this product a couple of months back, basically because my skin turns damn oily and I sweat like anything during Summers.. Also, I stay outdoors for hours as my Collage is a 1.5 hours journey from my home and I need a good Sunscreen that would last on my face atleast untill I set foot inside my collage! 😛
This Neutrogena sunblock comes in two sizes.. Out of which I possess the smaller 30ml tube! The quality of the tube is great and it has a sturdy screw cap that closes without allowing any leakage which makes it completely travel friendly! ❤
I found this sunblock to be slightly pricey compared to some other Sunscreens of the same SPF rating, like those from the brand Lotus! But as a pea size amount is required to cover the entire face, a small tube goes a long way.. Thus, making it economical.. 😀
The sunblock is white in colour and its fragrance is quite refreshing and resembles some wild flowers but it is mild and not at all overpowering! ❤
The sunblock is thick in consistency although the texture is not very creamy.. It spreads easily on the skin and gets absorbed within 10 to 20seconds of application, with a little massage! ❤
The product claims to be light weight on the face and give a DRY-TOUCH finish, but personally I have always noticed a layer of film on my face after application and even though it doesn’t feel heavy, it makes me sweat quite a lot! 🙁
Also, I haven’t felt any softness or smoothness post using it, as claimed! 😛
Apart from these, it is a great sunblock! I have sweated a lot, got wet in rain, wiped my face a multiple times, and yet it never failed to give me ample protection from the sun! ❤
I have never got tanned with this sunblock on, even if I spent hours under the sun!
So, if you can set it with a little powder, this is one of the best Sunscreens for oily, sweaty skin! ❤

SUMMING UP PROS AND CONS:
1. Easily available and travel friendly. Buy it from here!
2. Though it is a bit pricey, a small tube lasts quite long…
3. Gives great protection from suntan and sun burn!
4. Waterproof, sweatproof, resists wiping off.
1. No ingredients list is mentioned.
2. It isn’t DRY-TOUCH as claimed and leaves a film behind.
3. A few false claims like softening and smoothening of skin and being oil free!
RATING: 4/5 (For it’s great performance as a sunblock)
FINAL TAKE: If you are looking for a Sunscreen that would resist getting wiped with sweat or water and still give great sun protection for hours, this is the one! Though you will have to mute the shiny look with a little face powder! 😀 ❤
Hope it helps! ❤
