Packaging: The sunscreen comes in a yellow coloured tube with flip open cap. The tube is travel friendly.
Texture and colour: The product is quite thick but creamy and pure white in colour. Spreads easily.
Fragrance: The sunscreen has a sweet smell characteristic of all Lakme products.
How I use and staying power: To use, apply on cleansed face even before you apply your makeup. Massage to evenly blend it in. Top it up with your regular makeup routine or any moisturizer.
I have only used the Lotus and Clinique sunscreens till date which were tinted and worked like a BB cream too. Since this sunscreen wasn’t tinted, I already knew this will give a white cast and it did which looked horrible the fist few minutes but then blended well with the skin and makeup/powder adjusted it too. It did feel greasy at first but then settled into a matte finish. This is specifically made for normal to dry skin so combination and oily skinned girls can stay away from this as it makes your t-zone oily in few hours! You can blot it but it feels greasy and uncomfortable by the end of the day. Normal to dry skinned people can use it with ease. The sunscreen does shield your skin from UV rays. I did not experience any tanning even after spending the entire day under sun which is good. Overall, a decent sunscreen that does what it claims.
- Works well for normal to dry skin under moderate climatic conditions (neither so hot and humid or cold)
- Does not clog pores
- Can be used as a makeup base
- Prevents tanning
- Gives a white cast initially
- Can make your skin feel greasy after few hours in hot and humid climate for all skin types
