What the brand says: Lakme Sun Expert launches the first-ever sunscreen in a revolutionary powder compact format. Designed for India’s hot and humid weather, it provides matte, non-sticky broad-spectrum sun protection. The high protection, matte sunscreen powder contains SPF 40 PA++ minerals that evenly spread on the skin. It forms a protective layer that blocks sun’s harmful UVA & UVB rays, so your skin is shielded from the damaging effects of sun-like tan, sunburn, dark spots, premature aging. It gives a matte, non-sticky after-feel and coverage for an even complexion.
MY TAKE ON LAKME SUN EXPERT ULTRA MATTE SPF 40 PA+++ COMPACT
Packaging: The compact comes in a flip open case with a mirror and applicator sponge. The case is easy to carry around and use on-the-go.
Texture: The powder is perfectly compacted and is very fine that gives a perfect matte finish.
Shade: The product is said to be a universal shade and suitable for all skin tones.
How I use and staying power/after-effects: Apply the powder on your cleansed skin 20 minutes before sun exposure. Since I use makeup, I use it on top of my makeup as a setting powder. You can also use it on top of your moisturizer.
I always use sunscreens but they often feel greasy so I need to set it with a powder always; also because I use makeup on top, the greasy feeling goes away. If you are someone who hates using a cream-liquid sunscreen, this is the product for you! Simply dust the powder on your skin using a brush or the applicator given and you are done! The powder sets to a superb matte finish and controls shine all-day-long. Its getting hot in here- thanks summer! and the product did an amazing job in keeping my skin fresh, matte and well, protected from the sun. The shade is called universal yet I feel it might give a white cast on darker skin tones if used with a sponge applicator; you can dust only a small amount on your skin using a fluffy brush in that case. The product works great as a makeup setting powder too and I am glad I got my hands on this because I do not like the warm-greasy feeling of a sunscreen that causes sweating in humid weathers! Also, I did not tan even a bit or felt sun-burnt even after being out in the sun the entire day. I give this product a thumbs up!
