Few weeks back Dhanu asked me to review this sunblock lotion from VLCC which I got as a free sample along with their Gold Facial Kit. Generally I would prefer sunblocks with SPF30 or more than that. Here I am reviewing their sample of 25 ml which I have used mostly on my face and twice or thrice on my hands.
This lotion protects the skin from the harmful effects of ultra-violet rays of the sun for a longer period of time. Sandal heals and keeps the skin cool & smooth. It moisturizes & protects the skin from getting tanned. Preferred for Normal to Dry skin.
Rs35/- for 25ml with a shell life of 3 years.
Comes in a mustard yellow plastic tube with a blue screw top cap. The texture is creamy& the consistency is more on a runny side. It has got soothing sandalwood fragrance unlike other sunblocks having unfriendly fragrance.
My Experience with VLCC Surya Sandal Sunblock Lotion:
I have been using this lotion on my face since 2 weeks and very satisfied. Due to its runny consistency get soaked up in skin pretty fast and gives a cooling sensation for sometime (May be due to presence of aloe vera extract./ I have a dry skin). Doesn’t make my skin feel greasy or oily . I used it below my foundation and it didn’t made my skin feel heavy.Has a soothing sandalwood fragrance so most of you will like this.
I didn’t notice any tanning on my face & hands after using this. But this would not be enough in summers keeping in mind the Hyderabad climate where we the temperatures reach to extreme during summers.
All together below are my likes & dislikes for this one:
- Gets easily absorbed into the skin.
- Doesn’t make skin oily or greasy.
- Can be used under makeup.
- Travel friendly packaging.
- Decently priced.
- Doesn’t smell awkward.
- Completely natural ingredients which protects & moisturizes skin.
I have no dislikes for this one but I would like to go for lotions with SPF30 or more. For rains or winters I think this will work fine but for summers you definitely need extra protection.
An ideal sunblock lotion which protects your skin from harmful sun with out making it oily or greasy, very light on skin & gets absorbed instantly.
