What the brand says: Say goodbye to sticky sunscreens: Get a guaranteed 97% protection from harmful UV rays in an exciting new gel format! This lightweight gel sunscreen is ideal for Indian weather which tends to get hot and humid. It spreads easily on skin and leaves your skin with an ultra-matte feel. In addition, it provides broad-spectrum UV protection which means it guards your skin from both UVA and UVB rays.
MY TAKE ON LAKME SUN EXPERT ULTRA MATTE SPF 50 PA+++ GEL SUNSCREEN
Packaging: The sunscreen comes in a usual lakme yellow tube similar to other sunscreens.
Texture: The product is actually a translucent spreadable gel that blends in very easily without leaving behind a sticky residue.
Fragrance: The product smells quite refreshing and I am glad it doesn’t smell sweet!
How I use and staying power: To use, slather some sunscreen on all exposed parts of your body after cleansing and hydrating and before putting on makeup. I always use this after applying my La roche Posay cream.
Frankly speaking, I wasn’t really expecting anything from this product keeping in mind how cheap it is! I have oily-combination skin and I always prefer gel-based products and since this is a gel product, I thought why not use it? The product once applied on face takes time to blend in but you guys, I love how hydrated my face feels while I rub it in and even after it is well blended! It makes my skin super soft and keeps well moisturized! Does not leave behind any white cast like most of the sunscreens which I am glad about. Makeup goes on smoothly after using this sunscreen and my skin feels super healthy. The sunscreen won’t clog pores or even make your T-zone oilier. Regarding the sun protection part, I feel it does give good protection because I did not see any redness around acne or sun-tan after using this which usually happens when I don’t use a sunscreen. Overall, thumbs up to this product.
