Lakme offers different variants in its sun protection range SPF 15, SPF 20 & SPF 30. PF 20 & 30 are more of oil control based so I picked up SPF 15 for a try. SPF 20 & 30 as per Lakme offers upto 97% protection from UVA & UVB rays.

Well as it claimed, it didn’t help at all to lighten my skin tone nor I suffered from any tanness while using this. It didn’t make my skin feeling greasy; I also used it on my face before applying makeup and was quite comfortable. Didn’t give me a heavy or greasy feeling on my face with makeup on. Gets absorbed in the skin easily. Not sure about moisturization coz it made my skin a bit stretchy when applied it without my body lotion ,so I always apply it on my moisturized hands and legs. Consistency is runny. Not sure about its visible action for premature ageing .
